Carl Williams writes, "Super Mario 64 was a seminal release, it was one of the last times that a console and a launch title sold 1:1 at launch, and it was an instant classic. Sure, there were problems with Super Mario 64 but fans were too enamored with the quality of the overall package to be nitpicking little things like a sucky camera (sure you could adjust it, nay you HAD to adjust it). Nintendo had a hit on their hands and they knew it, the gamers proved it. Cartridges were here to stay for at least one more home console generation (they lived on a good decade longer in the handheld market). Now, nearly 20 years later, homebrew developers are working hard to finish their new level pack for Super Mario 64."
