The Greatest Launch Title?

Zach Gibson makes a case for Super Mario 64 as the best launch title of all time. (Retro, Super Mario 64)

Well that was a really short, vague, token look at the game. I'm kind of disappointed.

Agreed, the best Mario, this spawned everything we see now as far as Mario games.

I agree with this I remember getting this game for n64 it was one of the best game if not the best game ever

For me the best launch game was Resistance Fall of Man.
Not because it was an amazing game, but because it was the first online multiplayer shooter I had ever played - sort of.

Id touched on Battlefield 2 on the PC but only briefly, and Id had a go at a big lan match on UT2003 at school but aside from that Id only played single player and split screen. PS3 was the first console I ever had online and with it I had Resistance.

So to me, that game was revolutionary and will always be fondly remembered!

"Not because it was an amazing game"...you can say that again. Super Mario World or Mario 64 were, easily, both depending on your age/interest at the time - predictable but correct. For me however the GameCube launched with the best choice of games if not a masterpiece.

Microsoft would easily say Halo....I would lean toward the original Mario, because there would not be the version for the n64 with the original..... Plus it came packed in with the console.
