For those who either have never played or just weren’t around at the time, GoldenEye 007 was released for the Nintendo 64 in August 1997 and it basically consisted of a single-player campaign where players assume the role of British Secret Intelligence Service agent James Bond as he attempts to stop a criminal syndicate from using a satellite weapon against London to cause a global financial meltdown. If you’ve ever played this game, you know how tough it is to just complete everything, but speedrunner Ryan White has managed to beat the game using just a single bullet. Read more for the video and additional information.
Where did Ryan have to use this single bullet? On the infamous first level of course, where players have to shoot a lock to open a gate. After this, it wasn’t exactly smooth sailing, but as you can see, it can be done. On a related note, did you know that the game was developed over a period of 2.5-years by an inexperienced team led by Martin Hollis, who had previously worked on the coin-op version of Killer Instinct? That didn’t stop it from selling over eight million copies worldwide, making it the third-best-selling Nintendo 64 game of all-time.
