Super Mario 64 with a "compelling story"? haha
The console that defined my childhood.
Best console ever actually it was the first console i ever bought on my own & i was still in elementary. My first game was Mortal Kombat 4 i'm a huge fan then i got mario 64, banjo and a few other ones.
Not the best console, but probably the best in number of amazing games. Conkers Banjo DK64 Glover Smash Bros. Harvest Moon Animal Crossing Ocarina of Time 007 Perfect Dark Pokemon Stadium Pokemon Snap Resident Evil 2 Forsaken Quake/Doom So many good games.
Sorry but animal crossing didn't show up until gamecube. Don't forget the turok series, majora's mask, mario kart64, pilotwings, and shadowman.
Animal Crossing was on N64 in Japan. Might not have been in the States, but it's on N64 still. And yeah, Turok was good, Starfox too. I was jjust naming games going through my N64 collection, heh.
He was listing his games, not the best games on the console I think
One of my favorite consoles of all time!
I feel sorry for kids who woke up at Christmas and got a N64 instead of a PS1.
Why? While they are both amazing consoles the N64 had the better first party games not only in it's generation but in the history of gaming. Games that changed the industry like Super Mario 64, Banjo and Goldeneye.
I like Playstation, but being able to play with 4 players was the best gaming experience I ever had. Playing Pokemon Stadium mini games to Goldeneye.
WHAT?! The Nintendo 64 was the best Christmas present that I have been ever to receive!
Most disappointing console in my opinion. Mario 64, Star Fox , Ocarina of time and Blast Corps. Were all great. Not much else that I cared for.
'Super Mario 64 was probably the best videogame ever created" Please that's a little too much too many better games
SM64 is a true 10. You can deny deny deny deny deny lol...
Im not denying its good im just saying its not the best game ever made
The N64 had so much potential to be greater than it was but since Nintendo was in their own way & did not convert to CD based games it hurt the developer support for the system. With the eventual release of the PS1 the N64 struggled to maintain Nintendo's massive success that they had with the SNES. Does that remind you of anything?? (hint:it happened 6 years ago)
