Re: What are you playing right now?

This may come as a shock, but I've dusted off an old Nintendo 64 and I've been playing Perfect Dark for the first time in years.

All I have to say is... wow. Even though the N64 hardware can't properly handle the game's heaviest action, Perfect Dark has aged remarkably well. This isn't because of the campaign mode, because I have always hated how it ends (spoiler: you're not shooting humans anymore)

What I do love about Perfect Dark -- and still love about it -- is the weaponry. I love firing a well-placed head shot that scores a one-hit kill, be it from a Magnum or a machine gun. I love being able to transform hand grenades into bouncy proximity bombs. I still get a sadistic glee from converting the game's Laptop Gun into a sentry turret. Perfect Dark is pure gun porn, plain and simple
