no contest.. I mean Banjo was a great game, but SM64 defined the ERA of 64 bit gaming and showed the world how to do a 3D game properly.

Super Mario 64 is the more historically important game, but Banjo is the better game.

Its a draw, at least for me. These were the first two games I ever got for my N64 back in '98. Nostalgia makes it too hard to give either on the edge. Both wonderful games that I still dabble in from time to time on emulators

Super Mario 64 no doubt! I recently just tried Banjo for the first time and OMG... was it tediously dull... The levels were far too large for that type of game, and the over abundance of collectables made it a chore to play. I shut it off after 20 minutes...

The reason I chose Mario 64 is because it still plays great, the level design is memorable, it's streamlined with clear objectives, and because I can play that game 20 years later, and still have a great time...

How could you tell if the levels are too large and there's too many collectibles if you only played 20 minutes of it? You would have barely been introduced to Gruntilda's castle, let alone anything past the first level (which is an intro level anyway).

It's true, but you looked too deep into my comment... Just didn't like the game. That's all

Donkey Kong 64 was also a good game like those.
