Nintendo 64 FPS players have already gone down memory lane with Facility in Goldeneye 007. The only song almost as memorable is Perfect Dark’s Institute.

As a kid, this was the first game I saved birthday money to buy. I was extremely excited to play Perfect Dark based on how much fun I had playing Goldeneye 007. Sure it did not disappoint, and this song has been embedded in my head since.

Years later the game was re-released for Xbox 360, and sadly I didn’t enjoy it as much. It’s pretty much the same game, and I remembered most of it, but sadly I was spoiled by modern day First Person Shooters. I wonder what would happen if I ever go back to play Goldeneye. That memory is so sacred that I probably wouldn’t dare play it or any port of it!
