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.

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

You dont think they are strongest games in series, but they are widely considered for one the best games in history not just in series.

I name you games that are widely considered for one of the best ever and wildy affected industry of gamein and they are all from one generation, name me games that are widely considered being better games and had better effect on industry that are part of same generation than games that I mentioned.

I understand you don't like that gen and those games, but I here talking about facts.

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.

Rage Wars is such a good game. I think it's the best multiplayer FPS on the N64. Better than Goldeneye by far, and narrowly edging out Perfect Dark, IMO :)



I LOVE ICELAND!

I have to give it to GoldenEye or Perfect Dark, but I LOVE Rage Wars. That was always in rotation when my friends got together.

I really liked the level design, the bots, secondary fire modes, and the ability to choose your weapons before the match.

Widely in your generation for sure, there are just as many who think the games I mentioned (Galaxy, Alttp, FFIV, SSnake2) Who also happens to be among the best games of all times are better games than your favorites. Also fact. And where did I say I didnt like those games? They are fantastic games. Revolutionary games. Just not the best games in their respective franchises.

Still you ignore my other opinon, which has been my go-to opinion the whole discussion. Depth. The 5th generation has a high as hell peak, probably the best top 10 of all generations but in terms of depth I dont see it topping a few other generations.

Not exactly, because actually Zelda Ocarina of Time is widely considered for best game ever. And if we look list of game that are considered for best ever, all game that I mentioned are better than game that you mentioned.

I totally agree with your second paragraph, thats my point and thats a reason I consider 5. gen for golden age of gaming, but you are probably right when you say that some other gens (for instance 6. gen) maybe have bigger depth with higher number of games than 5. gen.

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.

Oh how could I forget all the hours spent playing 4 man matches in No Mercy and Wrestlemania 2000.  My friends and I were all WWE > WCW so we loved those much more than the WCW iterations.  Though of course we only ever played as our own created characters!

What was your go-to loadout?

If I remember correctly, I picked the Mag60, Assault Rifle, Tek Crossbow, Inflator, and Grenade Launcher.
