Okay, your top 50 games are your top 50 games. I'd have a few (to include Bayo 2, Mario 3d World, XCX which would be my #1 game of all time, Windwaker HD, and even the poorly received Fatal Frame V, BOTW wouldn't make it because I haven't played it). As far as N64 games go, it would be Paper Mario, OOT and Mario 64, and those would only make the top 50 based on how I felt about the games at the time, I can't throw them in now and enjoy them in nearly the same capacity, but I honestly I do think top 50s should be based on how they effected us on release, so they would make it. 

Most people won't and don't have XCX in their top 100 games list. I guarantee OoT will be in the top 10 every time. You have a personal preference for the WiiU which is understandable, but for a vast majority of people and critics the N64 was and will always be the better system. It's games were also better (much better) at the time of their release. 

Breath Of The Wild will be though, ahead of OoT.

It isn't ahead of it now, 21 one years after the fact. OoT remains the highest rated game. Most people would have played the game on Switch anyways.

I do remember people trashing the N64s graphics. There was Wave Race, Mario 64, and even OOT, but there's no doubt where the game industry decided it wanted to go (at least until technology improved).

Also, it's hard to argue that N64 games are the worst aged games of all time.

I don't know who was trashing the N64's graphics when it's graphics were much better than the competition at the time. You can guess which picture is from the PS1 and which is from the N64. Also, I wouldn't say the N64 has poorly aged games. Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time are still incredibly fun to play. In fact, the majority of it's first and second party library is. With the biggest exceptions being Goldeneye and Perfect Dark due to their incredibly awkward control schemes.
