The N64 was a bad console in general. Terrible controller, lack of support, and most of the games just haven’t held up very well. The only saving grace is a small handful of classics that most people love. I’m not gonna claim that Ocarina of Time sucks, because it was probably mind-blowing at the time and is still enjoyable when I’m in that dated 90s design mentality (and dated or not, that soundtrack is still legendary). But I can see why people wouldn’t like it now.

I don’t like Mario 3’s slippery controls. The rest of the game is great, though.
Pokemon Let’s Go is a much better gen 1 remake than FRLG, probably my least favorite games in the series next to USUM.
The new God of War isn’t bad, but I preferred the first 3 games.
Sonic Unleashed is a good game, at least on the Wii. Probably my favorite in the dark era between Adventure 2 and Generations.
Castlevania 3 is my favorite game in the series. And maybe my favorite game on the NES.
Nintendo will probably never top the SNES in terms of quality consoles. And similarly, no one will ever top the SNES Classic when it comes to plug’n’play systems. Not like a lot of companies have tried, what with all the broken pieces of junk flooding the market.
And finally, I just don’t care much for RPGs in general. I’m not a fan of the really slow pace of most of them, or the grinding. A couple have been saved by the story and characters, while others (like Pokemon) aren’t actually that grindy, but for the most part I’m just not the biggest fan.
