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.
