I just noticed this Nintendo 64 sale on ebay which looks like a very nice collection for anyone interested in obtaining an N64.

Hm, I own an N64 console, because I collect them, but I was never into N64 playing, I don't like the games.

None of the games? I never owned one at the height of the N64 days, but did purchase a couple of very nice N64 collections on ebay years ago and amassed a very nice collection including 3 boxed systems. And I did find there were many games for the system that were great. Not many RPGs of note though.

I have 5-6 sports games that the guy gave me together with the console, but I never tried them. But I don't mean this type of games, but the typical nintendo games.

Oh, I see what you mean. I suppose the Nintendo cutsie style of game design is either loved or hated.

But there are many other great N64 titles such as Goldeneye, Zelda, F-Zero, the Star Wars games, Bomberman, Extreme G, Lylate Wars, Wave Race, Perfect Dark etc... I could go on.

Did you ever try the soccer games on the N64? ISS64 was great at the time and one of my favourite Fifa's was on the N64.

The first ISS I played was onthe PSX. I had no friends with a N64. But I have one omyself since 3 years with soccer, NFL, NBA and MLB games, but there are better platforms now to play these games. And NO, I'm not gonna try them now ;)

You really should try ISS64 it is a fantastic footy game I own it myself and played it again about 6 months ago and to my surprise still enjoyed it, Goldeneye is the greatest multiplayer game ever for me, i am still to play an FPS in multiplayer that works as well as Goldeneye.

And don't forget that N64 emulators are pretty good these days, and I know you must surely have the full N64 rom set DC! ;)

As well as the obvious Nintendo games and those metntioned previously, Blast Corps and Banjo Kazooie are great games, well worth checking out too.

Goldeneye/Perfect Dark are still way up there for me too. I spent way too much time on those games, but damn it was good.

If you like racing games, Mario Kart 64 is great fun. I actually enjoy it more than the later versions, for example the one for the Gamecube.

For me the best is still the original SNES Mario Kart. Even the Mario Kart 64 sequel was horrible in handling and gameplay compared to the classic original.

I think that EVERY Mario game is overrated *awaiting :stick: now*

Each to their own, although Mario 64 is one of my favourite games ever.

It was a brilliant game, no doubt about that, but also it came along at the right time in my life, when I was receptive to that sort of thing - so it really does stick in my mind for a number of reasons, possibly some tinged by nostalgia - but it made a major lasting impression on me.

Each to their own indeed, but come on DC, that comment really does deserve a good :chair: or maybe even a visit from... :jason: or :freddy5hi: :lol:

Personally I have always found all Mario games really enjoyable and contain great and fun gameplay.

What about Paper Mario on the N64? or Mario RPG on the SNES? :huh:

I find the Mario games too childish. Nothing I could enjoy playing for a long time.

Harrison
16th March 2007, 15:29
But have you actually tried playing the different Mario themed games? They are not as childish as is often thought.

I can see why some people don't like that brightly coloured, kind of typical Nintendo style of some games, and whilst I'm not going to change any opinions (nor would I try) I personally feel the perceived simplicity to be quite refreshing, a good concentrated burst of something a little bit different without too many distractions. I quite like the pick up and play for a little while aspect too - mainly because I don't have the opportunity to sit down for a good long gaming session much any more.

I agree with you about the pick-up and play part, JT. If you don't have much time for gaming, consoles can be quite handy.

I really like the Nintendo platform. There are so many quality games to choose from, ranging from platformers to racing. My favourites are the Donkey Kong platformers for the SNES, the Mario Kart series, and of course the Mario platform games. It is quality through and through, with excellent gameplay. Many titles supports two-players as well, which makes it fun to play with friends.
