Goldeneye on the N64 was a huge watershed moment for console gamers. Personally I spent an insane amount of time chasing my brother through Facility, sticky bombing every wall I could find, camping with the golden gun on Temple...
And the interesting thing: just about every N64 owner has similar stories.
Goldeneye really struck a nerve among gamers my age, which is why I think this Australian documentary has the potential to be something pretty special.
It's called GoldenEra and it's a project on Indiegogo. Full disclosure: I was interviewed for the documentary. My beautiful face is in the trailer above.
Behind the camera is veteran Australian games journo Narayan Pattison — who gave me my first job in games writing — and experienced Director Drew Roller. The guys have already interviewed a large number of developers involved in making Goldeneye and it sounds like there's a real story to be told there.
Looking forward to seeing more. You can find out more about the project here
