So what's the deal? Is playing as Oddjob cheating?
In an interview published earlier this week, the developers of GoldenEye finally gave their verdict on the controversy: Yes, Oddjob is absolutely cheating, and you shouldn't share your Fruit by the Foot or Dunk-a-roos with anyone who uses him. It also turns out that this whole time, the developers knew that Oddjob broke the game's auto-aim mechanism (hence why everyone's bullets missed), but he was just "too much fun to take out," and "there was no impetus ... to change it." That's a neat sentiment, but to the untold hundreds who lost those stupid N64 controllers to unforgiving walls, it's cold comfort.
