Twenty years ago, 3D gaming (no, not the pop-out-at-you kind) was exciting. Thanks to a plumber, an ocarina, a British spy, and bear with a bird in his backpack, one home console was able to master this new age of gaming.
My friends and I still play ours after all these years. Mario Tennis, Super Smash Bros., Pokemon Stadium, Mario Kart, Goldeneye, StarFox 64, Mario Party, Diddy Kong Racing, Mario Golf, and Conker's Bad Fur Day are some of the games we still enjoy playing to this day. Such a great system
I bust out WWF Attitude and No Mercy once in a while
I remember seeing the N64 for the first time at a Sears in Hawaii. Used to play the timed Mario 64 demo all the time there.
Wave Race 64. Best water evarrr
Banjo-Kazooie, Lego Racers, Zelda, Pokemon Snap, DK64. So many good memories with this thing. I feel so old now.
If anyone tries to leave a comment about this system in the sense that it was awful is not a true gammer , this consel may have been the strictest in policies but it goes down as history as one of the most played consoles and the best games ever made. Respect this consol
" it goes down as history as one of the most played consoles and the best games ever made" that's debatable id say the Ps2 or Xbox 360 had more of a lasting impact
Dude no one is saying the ps2 or 360 didn't have a lasting impact. But with out a shadow of a doubt the n64 had a huge impact and some of the best games that can never be beating. Mario 64 , ( changed open world games ) , Goldeneye ( changed first person shooters ) , rumble packs , ability for 4player split screen , Mario kart 64 , even the best wrestling game of all time wwe no mercy N64 goes down as history as one of the finest machines of its generation and helped paved the way for future gaming in both Microsoft and Sony.
it was a flop nintendo would've gone under if gameboy didn't keep them afloat
Did you play it ?
BEST SYSTEM for LOCAL MULTIPLAYER!! And the system of friendship destroyer. So many amazing games!! So underrated games I had. Glover Mickey Mouse Speedway Hexen Hybrid Heaven Mystical Ninja Tom & Jerry Fist of Furry and some more. I had like over 30 games.
so mines been in a landfill for 18 years
@Sweendog007 N64 had a few Hall of games, but it doesn't belong in the same category as NES/SNES.
It changed the foundation for many games going forward , did you not read the article ? It's one of the best gamming machines of it generation. It pushed the graphics to 3D , it had open world games , first person shotting games which is undoubted one of the best shotting games of all time , it created the rumble feature that is now standered. It also created split screen multiplayer up to 4 people which became popular , one of the best wrestling games of all time. Everyone played Mario kart at some point , it may not have sold as big but you can not take away what it achieved , even developers will tell you that. Mario 64 goes down as one of the greatest games of all time , and goldeneye and perfect dark the best shooters of that generation Mario kart 64 , where you was buying playstion at the time or not everyone played it. It's a great machine for its time and helped bring things to the current generation
It changed the future of gaming @nevin1 how can you say it was a flop ( yes in term of sales ) but it was still one of the most played consoles of all time , and it was the first console to do many things that we take for granted now. By no sense was it a flop it was a forward thinking consle and had the best games in history and to this day are still talked about , a flop is the wii u which left no legacy behind Because a console does not sell that great it don't mean it's a flop , it's the legacy it leaves
Why read when I played them?
Where did I say it was a flop?
It was all about Goldeneye and Mario64 for me.
The good ole' days. When nothing mattered.
Still the best Nintendo console IMO
In the past month I've beat Ocarina Of Time, Majoras Mask and Banjo Kazooie. I didn't even realise I'd been bingeing N64 until now xD
Time, slow down... Damn
nice i still have mines as well i even have the box
My favorite console ever. Nintendo was at its prime then. Constant barrage of quality titles.
Watch how much you drink, don't go to college unless your ABSOLUTELY certain it's what you need to do, stay out of drugs, don't let yourself become bias and full of hate. And please my son, love a good woman with all your heart. /sniff It's so rewarding/hard to see them grow up :')
