We all have games from our childhood that we remember fondly. I just wanted to share my experience of returning to one of my favourite games as a kid and getting burnt.
I can remember pouring hours and hours into Perfect Dark on my N64. I replayed missions endlessly, whether stealthily or on a murder-spree. I'd spend hours doing silly things that I wouldn't waste my time on as an adult - I'd re-do the training over and over and I may or may not have blocked the door open to the shooting range to fire unlimited arrows into the face of the guy standing outside on more than one occasion (don't judge).
It was just a fun game - better than Goldeneye in every single way in my opinion as a stupid kid.
I recently rebought Perfect Dark to return to my childhood playground and...wow, was it bad.
The gameplay doesn't hold up, the story was lame (especially from the moment Elvis appears) and I just didn't enjoy playing it. It completely tarnished my memories of playing it in my youth and I honestly wish I'd never returned for that hit of nostalgia.
Have you ever returned to one of your childhood favourites just to be let down?
