There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

In the wonderful game, Bonaparte at Marengo, this is how to get nasty Frenchies out of a village.

In the majority of Bond films, Q outfits Bond with gadgets for his mission. Do you use any, "special gadgets" (or bits) to enhance your gaming mission?

Bond's missions take him all over the world, and once into space. Have you ever gone someplace "thematically significant" to play a game?

Hollywood seems bent on gender bending. Two examples are Ghostbusters (all female leads) and The Next Karate Kid (male to female lead). Then there are race changes, such as Felix Leiter going from white to Africian-American (Casino Royal) and The Karate Kid (2010) going from Japanese to Chinese.

Before Daniel Craig confirmed his return, there was talk about making Bond female. What do you think about a Ms. Bond? Is changing genders and races in remakes/sequels a good thing? Are there some characters which should never change? Would anyone accept a Shaft film, with a white lead, or Superman as Hispanic, or an Alien movie where Ripley was male?

Some say James Bond is too misogynistic and violent for "modern sensibilities". Are there games you won't play with specific audiences? Are there games you won't play (or play again) because of how the theme or action makes you feel?

Another Bond trope is that he like to drive great cars (except for the AMC Javelin and Citroën 2CV, not great cars) and he likes to drive them fast. Do you have any favorite car racing games? Are there any you hate?

For Bond, each film is a new mission, filled with action and excitement. Your mission (and you choose to accept it) is to tell us, what have you been playing lately and what made it exciting or interesting?

What if you could live for one week in the "world" of a James Bond movie?
