Watch Jimmy Fallon play Nintendo's GoldenEye with ex-007 Pierce Brosnan

On Tuesday night, Jimmy Fallon did what any late night TV show host of a certain age would do if he had Pierce Brosnan on his show: He challenged James Bond to a duel in the Nintendo 64 video game GoldenEye, based on Brosnan's first movie as 007. Released in 1997, GoldenEye is widely considered one of the best games of all time — especially by people who had access to a Nintendo in the late 1990s. Brosnan gamely accepts, though he says he's only played once before ("and shot myself in the foot.") You can tell from Fallon's enthusiasm and mastery that he's played quite a few more times than that. --Peter Weber
