Actually the whole point of this thread is for nostalgic reasons. If you want to compare Goldeneye to Gears of War, go play Gears of War and let others enjoy their older games. That's what the virtual console is for.
I thought it was to discuss retro games? I'm discussing the fact that Goldeneye hasn't held up well. Compare that to Gears of war, no contest. Now find a game since A Link to the past, Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, that has come anywhere close to being as good an RPG. The newer Zelda's are nowhere near as good, only Final fantasy 7 came anywhere close to the old SNES RPG's.
