I was recently working on a "Top 12" video for the Nintendo 64, and realized there were an absurd number of great games I had to put aside for the list. So, I guess the question is: which one is your favorite?

Big love for DK64. Played it a lot at my friend's house growing up.

Super Smash Bros.

I used to play it with my friend every day after school. So many memories!



I have a Youtube channel... A Twitter, and... Yeah.

Very tough choice.

These 5 games below can easily be considered Games of the generation.

Ocarina of Time
Super Mario 64
Perfect Dark
Banjo-Kazooie
Goldeneye

I would have to go with Perfect Dark only because i have to choose one. Its one of the most featured filled games ever made. Its gameplay is still amazing to this day, the game broke new limits on N64 hardware looking like something that released on the Dreamcast/PS2. It offered great innovation and its story was awesome and having AI that put next gen games to shame, and lets not forget about music, some of best of its era. Outside of the hardware limitations of the N64, their is nothing i can fault on this game. Their is a very good reason as to why this game is sitting on a 97/100 Metascore. Rares greatest achievement.

Banjo Kazooie.
Ocarina of Time and Mario 64 are also legendary, and more influential, but BK to me represents a near perfect package.
Memorable worlds and characters, tons of variety and charm, great music, some of the best visuals on the platform, and a deeper and more refined take on the template Mario 64 pioneered.
For me it's the epitome of what made that generation of gaming so mind-blowing at the time; that leap forward into a whole new world of three dimensions that came to life like never before.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Ocarina of Time
