Damien's career in the games media began back in 2007, and it has been his dream to write for a retro-focused website since, well, forever, because it means he can finally post about obscure Japanese Mega Drive imports without anyone complaining too much.
Goldeneye is obviously the most popular and the most influential but I picked Agent Under Fire. It has been a long time since I played it but I remember that one actually feeling more like the full James Bond package with gunplay, gadgets, cars, etc.
I agree with Korgon above, except I chose Blood Stone for the same reason. It was just a complete package and a lot of fun. While Goldeneye was a great game, it was more of its time, and I feel like Agent Under Fire, Everything or Nothing, Quantum of Solace and Blood Stone were better 'Bond' games.
Goldeneye is still the greatest Bond game with excellent level design and great gameplay, plus very fun multiplayer and is a true classic.
After that Agent Under Fire was ok, Nightfire was better, Everything or Nothing was really good and better than Pierce Brosnans last Bond film, then the quality came back down with the various Goldeneye cash-ins and rather poor Quantum of Solace
I loved Goldeneye! One of my Top 10 Of All Time!
But here, I voted for Everything or Nothing. It was so underrated back in the day. It was very fun to play and the original story was classic 007 (it even had Willem Dafoe and Heidi Klum in the cast, IIRC)
I actually loved the light gun game on zx spectrum, the living daylights. It was as good a light gun game as you would get.
