When Multiplayer Was Multiplayer

(click to enlarge)

If you’re around my age and grew up with the N64 as your major system, the above scene should look intimately familiar to you. Nearly all of us play four players split screen Goldeneye at some point or another, and I probably logged more hours on that game than any other, except Super Smash Bros. of course.

The twist was that if my friends and I were playing it at my house, it had to be done in secret. Goldeneye was too much violence, so whenever my parents would burst in the door, we became experts in changing the channel and pretending like we were watching TV. Pausing was no good because a giant damn image of the gun you were holding would show up on your holographic watch.

This image is from Magical Game Time, and I highly suggest you check out all of his stuff.

Not to go all nostalgia-ish, but I really do miss four player split screen multiplayer. I can’t even remember the last game I played that had it. Halo?

I also miss having three friends who lived near me who had the free time to play video games whenever…
