Watch: Chris plays GoldenEye 007 for the first time

In this week's Late to the Party.

When I arrived at Eurogamer's offices on Monday morning, the first thing I did was pull out my N64 and a copy of GoldenEye and announce that it would be the next game played on Late to the Party. The room fell deathly quiet for a second before, almost in unison, everyone in earshot exclaimed; "who the hell hasn't played GoldenEye?!"

The answer to that question was of course the baby-faced Chris Bratt, who was too young to enjoy this game when it was first released in 1997. What an utterly terrifying thought.

As you'll see in the video below, I valiantly attempted to show Chris how much fun he missed out on while he was off doing whatever Chris Bratt did aged 7. Unfortunately I hadn't reckoned on him having a complete breakdown over the N64 controller. Things quickly descended into chaos - which, to be fair, is pretty much what happens in every Late to the Party episode.

Check it out below.

If you have any golden memories about GoldenEye, or just fancy sharing in my despair at how rapidly we're all ageing, feel free to let it all out in the comments below.
