It's part of it, speaking for myself, and I had an N64. If you ask me, it just wasn't all that good a shooter, however groundbreaking it was for consoles. At the time I was playing Goldeneye, I could also play things like Action Quake 2 using a mouse and keyboard instead of an ergonomic nightmare of a controller which needed you to press digital buttons to rotate your view. Even on the N64, Perfect Dark was a much better multiplayer game, and Goldeneye's campaign was terrible. It had two things going for it - splitscreen multiplayer, and the Bond licence. That took it a fair way, to be sure, but I've no nostalgia for it.
