Sounds like you were well invested into the N64 library.
I usually wouldn't mind too much if you just came across as someone who has radically different game tastes from me but considering you rate Half Life, Shenmue, Rayman 2 etc that doesn't appear to be the case at least in some genres. I really have to question how much and how many Rare games you actually played in the day. I could understand you not rating all of them but given the fairly diverse nature of their releases and their widespread critical acclaim I'm left feeling you either just don't like Rare for some reason or really haven't played many of their games.
If I am wrong then I apologise and I revert back to my original suggestion that we just have radically different tastes but I think many people would disagree with the suggestion that the N64's best games have aged more poorly than the PS1's.
I'm sure I played all the N64 games you would consider great. God knows there weren't that many. But only a few really grabbed my attention.
Most gamers I know don't care for Rare games either. If I didn't have the interweb I would have never known Rare games are so praised. It boggles my mind!
Anyway, I'm just bothered people say Rare doesn't make quality games anymore. Frankly, I never thought they did since the SNES days.
