Worst Nintendo home console of all time.

God awful. Very few good games, awful controller, ugliest generation for sure.

Still, Happy birthday! There are worse consoles out there..

Maybe now you can say that games from that generation graphicly aged worse because its first generation of 3D games, but that generation is definitely best generation in gaming, so many great games in that generation that are considered for one of best games in world released only on N64 and PS1.

Sorry, not a fan. There are a handful of great games, especially RPGs for the playstation and a few classics from Nintendo but overall a very dissapointing generation for me.

OK for you, but lets be realistic for second, generation in which we had: Mario 64, Zelda Ocarina Of Time (M64 and Zelda OoT are both considered like one of best and most influenced games ever), Golden Eye 007, Banjo Kazzoie, Mario Kart 64, Smash Bros 64...Metal Gear Solid, FFVII, Tomb Raider I/II, Resident Evil I/II, Silent Hill, Crash Bandicot, Twisted Metal 2...definatly golden age of console gaming.

realistically I could name just as many  great games from every generation but the current. The generation is romanticized by people who grew up with that generation, just as two generations earlier are the same for me.

I really can't see from what generation you can name games that are stronger than Zelda OoT, M64, FFVII and Metal Gear Solid for instance. Those game made standards for whole gaming industry and they are considered for best games ever, you really can't say that any generations had so many revolutionary games.



-Banjo Kazooie biger game ever . oohhhh memories

Never had an N64, but I'm making up for it with my Wii U virtual console.



Holy crap, I'm getting old!

I still remember how I paid 64 DM (the glorious Deutsche Mark!) for my pre-order. But it released in march 1997 over her in germany. And it only had 2 launch titles! Yes, two! I always laugh at people who get mad when some new console has only like 20 or 30 launch titles. Always brings back memories of the N64 launch when I only had the choice between Mario 64 and Pilotwings 64. (Though I've heard there were more games in other countries...)

Didn't bother me though, because Mario 64 was so goddamn good that I didn't need another game for at least a year. Overall I loved the N64, so many great games throughout the years. Goldeneye is still the best shooter ever imo. I also didn't have a PlayStation, so I missed a lot of things. But I managed to pick up Resident Evil 2 when I was on vacation in Austria. That sucker of a game did cost me a whopping 180 DM, but it was absolutely worth it! It had all the FMVs and everything and the graphics were even better than on PlayStation! I still don't know which kind of black magic was needed for Capcom to fit a game with two discs on one N64 module. But it worked! ^^

Oh, and of course there were the Aki Wrestling games! Pure gold, still better than each and every WWE game releasing today.

Since I dont even think those games are the strongest in their respective franchise, I have no problems naming better games than them. I do give them cred for bringing the 3D revolution to life though. (Altp, Mario Galaxy 2, FFIV, Metal Gear II are the ones I consider stronger games)

I cant say that other revolutionary games true, but I can without a doubt say several other generations had more quality games. Surely we arent going anywhere with this conversation but back and forth though since you obviously are a huge fan and I am not =) But still, fun having the discussion hehe

Biggest N64 memory....

....THQ wrestling games! The WCW vs nWo games were so much fun but when they got licenced to WWF I was blown away! Awesome game to play with a group of friends and the customization and rosters were great.

Yes! World Tour and Revenge are sooo good. Probably the best wrestling games I've played.

Man I'm getting old.

Where do I start. figuring something out in Zelda and immediately calling all my friends who are stuck in the same place to tell them about it.

Getting called by a friend who figured something out in Zelda.

Hooking up two transfer paks to the console and playing my gameboy pokemon team vs a friend's team in pokemon stadium.

Ruining stick after stick on Smash Bros playing with friends.

Co-Op in Perfect Dark.

The best console FPS multiplayer ever in Turok Rage Wars. Oh god shit got crazy in that game.

I can go on and on. My favourite system of all time. I can also mention that I grew up in Sweden where Nintendo won over the PS1. Nearly all my friends had an N64.

Rage Wars! So much fun. I miss those N64 Turok games.
