Having played the N64 for a whole week, N-Europe have compiled nine N64 moments which have made the console a pioneer. Read on for their top nine N64 'nin'ovations.
Articles like these are always welcomed. Positive insight from classic consoles that helped shape the industry. Unlike those crap articles from Bruceongames which is obviously anti-sony every damn time.

N64 will always remain one of the most important consoles in history. Too many innovations that help shaped the industry where it is today.
It's such a weird machine to be honest, but that's why I loved it.
yea that was my s*** back then.
a lot of my fav games of all time are 64 games, which is weird, 64 sucked mostly for 3rd party, but Nintendo had some great games, plus that was the rare golden age, yep, they don't make em like they used to.
I loved Blast Corps, that is one of the most innovative games I have ever played, I wish Rare churns out something better unlike Kameo or PDZ. Too bad Wii is nothing like the N64 was back in the days.
I got a N64!!!;) Yep i got one with Perfect Dark, GoldenEye, Mario Kart 64, Mario Tennis + Virtual Pool;) p.s PlayStation is and always will be my FAVOURITE consoles, i have PlayStation in my Blood!!! ;-P
Yes, GoldenEye, Mario64, the controller definatley helped change gaming. If nintendo would have used a cd instead of their proprietary cartidge things would have ended up a little diffrent. Game on...
I have 5 us rgb converted N64's such is my love of this machine. Worth owning an N64 for Goldeneye alone but certainly many other titles justify the purchase of an N64 I was very happy to have jumped from Playstation at the time, Goldeneye, Waverace and Goldeneye made that a perfectly pleasant switch and i never looked back
Oh nuts i meant Zelda Actually while i'm here: Pilot Wings Battlezone(i'm sure it's great on pc but it's still one of my absolute faves on N64) Goldeneye Perfect Dark Mario64(of course) Conkers(not a great game to be fair but funny and well worth experienceing) Blastdozer Zelda Ocarina(first real 3d virtual world where if you saw something in distance, you could get to it) Zelda Majora(Many people gave up on this one i guess but it's insanely brilliant and unique) Diddy Kong Starfox Just these games alone are worth getting an N64 if you have yet play these great games.
my favorite n64 game was Banjo-Tooie, or Quake..good times.
I grew up with NES and Genesis. The N64 was a disappointment. I haven't bought a Nintendo machine since.
Well youve just missed out on some of the best games ever created, especially Zelda Ocarnia of time.
mario 64 disappointment? zelda:oot,mm disappointment? goldeneye,perfect dark,banjo,conker,dk64,jet force,tooie,blast corps,body harvest,duke zero hour,paper maro,shadow man,mario kart 64,smash bros,mario party,disappointment? if truly think that n64 was a disappointment,you must be living in another world or just a fanboy
And the games, out of curiosity were they too a disapointment? N64 did after all have some staggering games.Was it the lack of RPG, fighting and Car games that fed your decision because i'm quite the opposite considering the best that was Nintendo 1st party games and a lot of what rare did. Despite not othering those said genres so much and less of a catalogue, the best of what Nintendo had back then was of a much better quality than anything certainly Playstation had.For greater choice and in particular RPG, PS won every time but it never came close to offering an equel FPS, Zelda or Plaforming experience Did you move onto Playstation as a result?
and I liked the tunes...in that game.
The last console that i have bought before a wii (Ps2 was a gift). This console have brought so much things to videogames. BEST idea was the analogy stick, the Z button in zelda (the lock was awesome ).
The only game I really truly loved on N64 was Mario 64 I never liked the 64. It was cartridge based when it should have been disc based and because of that the games were far more expensive and not counting Nintendo's first party games not worth the price. The cartridge also had massive draw backs hence the reason Square ditched Nintendo for Sony and the CD the PS had. Personally I hated the controller but that's just my opinion I know a ton of people who love I guess it's just a matter of taste. The SNES is still my favorite Nintendo console.
the 64. Still think its way better than the playstation. Nintendo just crushed me with the gamecube though playstation2 was by far greater I regret buying my gamecube just sits their collecting dust.
yet again almost factually accurate but the Dual Analog controller from Sony was released almost 7 months sooner then the N64 controller.
Is that a joke ?
Notice the word "dual analog" not dual shock and no it is not a joke the dual analog was released 6 months sooner then the n64. Oct 1995 for Japan release of the dual analog (announced aug 1995 JP) N64 release date June 23 1996 Japan. the dual analog was released in NA after the N64 release date in Japan but the N64 was released after the Dual Analog was in peoples hand.
gah wish I could correct the months (where oh where is my edit button) The dates are correct so the difference in months is actually: **9** months earlier for the Dual Analog to launch in Japan (but in NA the N64 hit before the Dual Analog)
The best are always (at last almost) those who sell the less. OOT, Mario64, Goldeneye games who define an era.
n64 sucks no rpg's, no fighters,no stealth based games, no resident evil, no silent hill, and to top it all a gay looking controller the list goes on PS1 wipes the floor with N64 both in quantity and quality
Lol, I guess you have never heard of the superior high-res Resident Evil on the N64, or Ogre Battle, or Mortal Kombat 4, or Killer Instinct, or ever thought of the fact that if not for N64, the ps1 would never have joysticks or rumble, or 4-player gaming. Retard...
killer insticnt and mk? thats it? PS had Tekken,Soul Calibur,SF,MK and more fighters i wont bother listing Tekken3 itself stomps all n64 fighters only 1 RE? which was a port? when PS had 3 RE's hahahaha Ogre Battle64 VS FFT,Front Mission,Vandal Hearts,Tactics Ogre. once again more i wont bother with Ha! n64 made 4 player gaming and sticks? lol ever heard of atari, arcade or vectrex? as for rumble you mean that bulky and ugly brick the n64 controller needs to get rumble along with batteries which dont even have dual sticks? hahaha the DS had both dual analog sticks and rumble out of the box no ugly looking pos is needed like i said PS >>>> n64 both on quality and quantity moron!
hey dear no game on ps1,ps2 or ps3 can match zelda:oot goldeneye 007 and perfect dark those were the days the ps one only has tekken,ff and mgs1,thats it 97% of games sucks today,too many consoles too many games sucks
"no game ps1 blah blah blah " you do realize i can say the same crap about n64 right? "97% of games sucks " Xenogears? Chrono Cross?Gran Turismo? Vagrant Story? Castlevania: SOTN? must i go on? if they suck, 99% of n64 games sucks then 3 games alone dont make a great console variety does which the ps offered and n64 didnt if n64 was so great it wouldnt lost to ps
"3D GAMING: Whilst the notion of 3D gaming wasn’t exclusively Nintendo’s idea, it was the way they pulled it off which set the template for the entire gaming landscape. One game of Mario 64 or Ocarina of Time was enough to make other ‘3D’ games seem like juttering, non-cohesive messes." ---LOL PS1.
Still do, sometimes play Super Mario 64 for some good fun. Too bad though, that most sequels from the best games on the n64 were never as good. StarFox 64 was the best out of all 3 games, or 4 idk. And Super Mario 64 was amazing. ZeldaOoT Was amazing also
the n64 has the two best first person shooters in the world( my honest openion) goldeneye007 and perfect dark 64
MY N64 STILL WORKS AND IT'S TEN YEARS OLD. LOL
