Pierce Brosnan Is Better at Playing James Bond in Movies; Watch Him Play the Classic Video Game GOLDENEYE 007 on THE TONIGHT SHOW

     August 20, 2014


If you grew up in the 90s and were near a Nintendo 64, you played GoldenEye 007.  It was one of the must-own titles, and while young gamers today would scoff at the boxy graphics, seemingly limited play modes, and lack of online play, it’s important to remember that those young gamers are stupid kids who don’t know any better.  I sucked at GoldenEye and still had fun playing it.  The game had so much cool stuff: paintball mode, golden guns, one-hit kills, and there was only one rule: You can’t play as Oddjob because he’s too hard to kill since he’s short.

Last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Pierce Brosnan was on promoting his new movie, The November Man.  Fallon, an endearing nerd and gamer, took the opportunity to play the most famous James Bond game with James Bond.  Hit the jump to check out the video.

    That’s awesome.

    But you can’t shoot yourself in the foot, Pierce.

    I loved one-hit kills + proximity mines only.

    It was such a shit show due to a glitchy physics/graphics engine that meant if you were a floor below where a mine went off, the debris/heat field from the explosion that went through walls could still kill you. It resulted in players dying randomly left and right after hearing a distant explosion.

    So stupid, but so fun.

    No one will ever believe me, but I think AGENT UNDER FIRE has better multiplayer if you adjust the settings just right for gravity and the Q-claw. You can basically play like Spider-Man inside the Matrix.

    Best game ever… I’ll always remember the arguments over people cheating in 4 player mode coz they were watching someone else’s screen to work out where on the map they were.

      Haha. Well, if one can do it, all can do it, therefore it’s not cheating. At least that’s how my friends and I would approach it.

    Best video game of all time as far as I’m concerned. I wish I could’ve played Pierce Brosnon. Sure, there were a lot of fun little glitches and it doesn’t have the bells and whistles of today’s games, but I’ll still take Goldeneye over any game you give me. Nostalgia is powerful, my friends.

  • Dan_K

    God, I still love this game. My friends and I used to play this, Mario Party 2 and Mario Kart for HOURS.

    The nostalgia
    This was the best game ever made

    Halo is better.

      Smoked gouda is better than Halo. CONTROVERSY!

      • RedMercury

        Bacon is better than smoked gouda.

    Love this video, love this movie, love this game (though I think the TWINE game was slightly better).

    Fallon lacks like an infant

    • Ryan Marsh Thunder Fairweather

      Are you saying he has poor motor control? Or the inability to use the washroom by himself?

  • El Alto

    Jimmy has the best job ever!

    • Clay

      Would you say it’s an Oddjob?
