One of my favorite games of all time... #PerfectDark  
 
PERFECT DARK: #Nintendo  64

Following up one of the most complete and perfectly balanced #Retrogaming  games on a system is a hard thing to do, when you reach the very top of the mountain exactly how much higher can you go? If you are RARE and it's the new millennium then you take what works, add some twists, make a new character and if at all possible add in some Aliens... Cause Aliens make everything cooler and everyone knows this. It's like only MORE Bacon makes Bacon better - lol.

So as everyone and their mum had purchased, played and loved GOLDENEYE another game of that structure was asked for by pretty much everyone with an #N64  console and RARE obliged. Whilst this is not about what game is better because honestly it's not really a fair comparison as this one needed a hardware expansion just to even run the main game, it certainly is one of those discussions I often see on forums across the internet.

I don't want to get involved in that though because for me both games are completely essential for any Nintendo fan, collector of person who appreciates masterful game design and above all else fun. So as the main +Retro Game Geeks twitter and G+ page has selected it as the game of the day I went through my magazine collection to see what I could find. Goldeneye was actually a sleeper hit when first released hence why very few magazine covers appear for it, it was one of those WTF moments that happens maybe once or twice per console but Perfect Dark had massive expectations surrounding it. 

So here's my copy of the PAL version of the game and some magazine covers from the time. The good news is that RARE delivered on everyone's hopes and expectations and even if you don't rate it better than Goldeneye absolutely nobody in their right mind can say it was not simply a brilliantly made and playable videogame. Pity the #Xbox360  sequel sucked harder than (insert rude but funny comment here) lol.

I hope you like the pictures and please sound off about YOUR memories of PERFECT DARK, the N64 console or RARE in general. I love to hear others thoughts on things. Did the world go DARK for you in 2000? Did you save the planet with ELVIS?

Great story and totally amazing pictures... You'll have to click the link below because +i100 's site sucks and isn't link friendly. They should really fix that.
