    I've been going through FF and FF2 on my iPhone and loving that too ... and Myst still rocks ... but there is something about playing old games on old kit.

    @ZeroHour I understand the tech reason both 'thanks' and 'rep' can't have the same value now then, but with that in mind why do the two separate entities exist when one isn't as significant? Wouldn't it be better to just have one? Possibly remove the 'Thank Post' link and just have the star - or remove both and have a 'Thank/Rep' link which adds only rep when clicked?

    Awww, Perfect Dark - Meant to be a Goldeneye "squeal" and if I rmemeber, it got slated a fare bit, but I LOVED it! Deathmatch with bots was awesome, and the weapon choice was huge! I got gold on all the challenges with the weapons!

    Yea, they did a follow up on the 360 - I played the demo and thought it was granny pants (granny pants = worse then pants, not as bad as "total s***e" )

    Perfect Dark on the 360 was better then the N64 for me I think ref the audio playing on a surround sound audio amp / system. Although I borrowed perfect dark on the N64 and didnt have surround sound

    If you have Steam (and I think you need Half-Life 2) this is good fun! Perfect Dark : Source

    Edit: And this one is great!!! it's kept true to the original: http://www.moddb.com/mods/goldeneye-source

    Edit 2: And this has been in development longer then I can remember! http://www.mariokartsource.com/
