Classic Gaming- Perfect Dark: (2000)

When it comes down to classic games for the Nintendo 64 Perfect Dark is a classic that many people who owned the console and the title itself really enjoyed.  Back in the late 90’s and early 00’s Rare had produced some awesome first person shooter titles such as Perfect Dark, GoldenEye 007.  The plot for Perfect Dark was also something that drew players into the game because the storyline included elements of science fiction along with a futuristic setting that takes place in 2023.

The story mode for Perfect Dark allows players to control the main protagonist Joanna Dark who eventually learns about a conspiracy plot to assassinate the US President in order to replace him with AI.  While progressing throughout the game players eventually learn that the foes who were conspiring against the President  are alien creatures called Skedars.  The Skedars were dangerous because they had the ability to disguise themselves as humans while interacting with other people.

Along with having good storyline the multiplayer modes of this game was one of the many things that added to its replay value. The idea of having CPU controlled players during a co-op in any type of shooter game for the N64 was amazing because it felt like something that was ahead of its time during the year 2000.  Also, the games that people could play with their friends including death match was something that never seemed to get boring. Since its release back in 2000, Perfect Dark had reportedly managed to sell over 2.5 million units worldwide for the N64 which was impressive.  Ever since Perfect Dark was remade for the Xbox 360 a few years ago many people have wondered if Rare will ever make a new Perfect Dark game.  When the series first became popular if was featured on the N64.  If Perfect Dark returned on the Nintendo Switch the question some might have is whether or not it will reach the same level of popularity that it did back in the early 00’s.
