Topic: Do you consider Everything Or Nothing a part of the film series?

Many fans, myself included, share this opinion. When I think about it, it's certainly better than some of Brosnan's films (Bar GoldenEye of course!) and it's got more variety than most of the Bond games where they would just have Bond continuously shoot people. Only weak point I find with it is that the game had no Moneypenny scenes. Maybe Samantha Bond had a busy schedule at the time? Does anyone else on here think of the game being canon with the series?

I think it should be. After the disapointment of Die Another Day, this game helped to erase the bad memories of seeing it.

It had everything a Bond fan could want from a video game, and from the storyline of the game it was suppost to be in keeping with Brosnan's movies, so to me it is canon.

No.  EoN is a great game, certainly my favorite so far among the Bond games, but it is still a game, not a movie.  Although it has a great cast,
beautiful graphics and movie quality production values, it is still a game.  In a game, the player is in control.  There are obstacles for the player to overcome, sequences that need to be replayed if failed, different routes one can take and no set time limit.
As Bond the player can be "Killed" any number of times, come back, try again.  You can set your difficulty levels, improve your scores, etc., etc., etc.
In EoN Brosnan's Bond references AVTAK and Max Zorin and we get to see the return of the Jaws character.  So while this game certainly ties in to the movie series, it has, for me, a completely different feel.
We watch movies.  We play games.  EoN is part of the game series.  The Quantum of Solace and Goldeneye and World is not Enough games are movie tie-ins but not movies. Perhaps one day someone will combine the genres effectively.  Until then, they will, for me, remain seperate animals.  ajb007/martini

EoN definitely the most Bondian game out so far. There is even a scene where you have to massage a female or otherwise the alarm will be raise. However, doesn't quite fit well as part of the film series, though. I agree with what JADE66 said.

Never theorize before you have data. Invariably, you end up twisting facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.

  I'm going to sit down and watch the video game walkthrough soon, but I do think Everything or Nothing would be a could title for a James Bond movie. I'm surprised they haven't done it already since the "EON" in "EON Productions" does mean "Everything or Nothing".

I personally consider a far superior ending to the Brosnan era than DAD, someone on Youtube edited the game footage like a movie (that's kind of his thing really)
