Still Don't Know Why GoldenEye Wii Exists...

GoldenEye 007 for the Wii is still coming out this fall and hoping to recapture of the magic of late 90s console FPSs, but seriously I hope this game flops and flops hard. I still don't know why this game even exists at all being a James Bond game, a first-person shooter only on the Wii, and a desperate attempt to bring back the classic because fans have been demanding it for years. Some classics are meant to be remade for the new generation while some should be left in the dust and nothing but memory, which is the case with this new GoldenEye game. A Wii-only shooter is asking itself to be sent to die especially compared to better and more modern shooters that are coming out at the same time like Halo: Reach and Call of Duty: Black Ops. The thing is that people have moved on to those games and I feel Activision is making it just on name alone to sell to desperate fans that have begging for a remake of sorts because they were playing endless multiplayer sessions back in the Nintendo 64 days. Who knows, I could eat crow if this game actually succeeds on the Wii just on the namesake alone along with a golden Classic Controller Pro bundled with the game. Then again, if I want to see one game fail and fail miserably, it is definitely GoldenEye 007 for the Wii.
