But the point isn't "best new game" or "new games vs old games". It's "Best Old Game" and I don't think you can say "Goldeneye /end thread" because there are plenty of games that are better than it.
Shooters: The original Half Life, for example (and I'm surprised no-one mentioned it), Deus Ex, Dark Forces 2, Quake 2
Point and clicks: Monkey 1 and 2 (everything after that failed), DotT, Discworld, Lost Secret of the Rainforest, Search for Cetus, Castle of Dr Brain (you can download those last 4 from abandonia.com - and I urge you to do so, they're still excellent).
RTS: AoE, WC2 (never was a C&C fan).
Sims: X-Wing vs TIE Fighter, X-Wing Alliance
Even when it was released I was very "meh" about Goldeneye, it had interesting bits but was generally just a normal shooter.
