I don't know about that. It was pretty innovative. At the time fps games were just about charging around killing monsters. In Goldeneye you were actually up against humans and could sneak around them if you wanted, going for silent kills and avoid tripping alarms. It predates even Thief for stealth mechanics. The objectives were pretty varied and could be done in a different order and weren't just key hunts like quake2 or whatever else was out at the time. Plus it had outdoor areas, which was something you didn't really see in fps games either.
