An Entire Nintendo Console Generation In One Image

Redditor OhioStateBuck has collected every Nintendo 64 cartridge released in North America. Doesn't seem like much, does it? Blame it on those cartridges.

Nintendo's choice of game delivery device wasn't the only reason the Nintendo 64 wound up with such a comparatively small library, but those expensive cartridges sure didn't help. While competitor Sony's original PlayStation wound up with more than 1,000 games pressed onto relatively cheap CDs, the entire North American Nintendo 64 library consists of 296 games. (Nintendo 64, Retro)

N64 = Quality over Quantity.

So many classic GREAT games that changed the history of video games forever, were made for the N64.

* So many Hidden gems that a lot of people don't know about either, because so many people had a PS1.

* I would LOVE a new Snowboard kids game, or a new Pilot Wings 64 or sequel to it. Maybe a new Wave Race 64.

There are some great gems on that system. Ever try out Mischief Makers or Jet Force Gemini? Fantastic games that people don't often talk about and they were both 64 exclusive as far as I know.

Nice. Wow, it didn't have that many games did it?

I wish the picture was higher rez, would be good to make out more detail.

So many amazing games in 1 picture. N64 had some of the best exclusives of all time.
randomass171  +   180d ago
Not to mention some of the most innovative and iconic Nintendo games of the time. Mario 64, Star Fox 64 and OoT? Masterpieces.

He's selling all it for $250
randomass171  +   180d ago
Dang, hefty price but it's hard to say the package isn't worth it.

I always forget how few games n64 had, considering how many great ones there were.
randomass171  +   180d ago
Having less shovelware seems to be one of the few upsides to not being the hottest seller.
barb_wire  +   180d ago
Really?

Huh guess Nintendo corrected itself then with the Wii then didn't it? Aside from a extremely *few* choice titles - that entire consoles lineup was nothing more than shovelware and the sad thing is, Nintendo were happy about it.
SilentNegotiator  +   180d ago
Shovelware is easy to ignore. Having less games in general is not an upside in any way shape or form.

such a low res image.
that's 299 games, impressive collection.
I knew the N64 didn't have many games but this puts it into prospective.
(PS1 had 2,418, PS2 had 3,870)

Sometimes how I wish the N64 used CD-rom...No telling how that gen would've played out.

You kidding? As a gamer its the experience and memories which dictate, from day 1 with my N64 - Mario 64, who could forget seeing it for the first time - to towards the end of its lifespan I played so, so many incredible games, true innovators and masterpieces.

Never once did I ever think while playing Ocarina, Goldeneye, Lylat Wars, Blast Corps, Wave Race or WWF No Mercy, oh, I wish I had a CD-ROM.

....and it could have had even MORE great games if they had used CD.

That was clearly his point.

No I wasn't kidding. The N64 might have had great exclusives majority first party...But it also marked the end of Nintendo having strong third party support...

After all, Did Final Fantasy 7...Arguably the greatest Final Fantasy of all time get released on N64? The trade off for using CD's would've bolstered software support on more powerful hardware.

But does he have Clay Fighter: Sculptors Cut and Turok: Rage Wars (grey cart)?

That's a whole lot cartridges.
higgins78  +   179d ago
@BIB not true - regarding 3rd party support, the Gamecube had plenty 3rd party support, most of it excellent. Also, Final Fantasy!? Why would I give a hoot to have Final Fantasy on the N64? The N64 was built for immediacy - everything the Final Fantasy games are NOT. CD Support (to my knowledge) offered little more than extended/bloated cut-scenes and bigger but not necessarily better worlds.
