Ocarina is just a pure masterpiece. Mario 64 is timeless and still an incredibly fun platformer. Mario Kart 64 will never be topped as a party game (we busted it out last Friday night again). Banjo-Kazooie, Donkey Kong, Mario Tennis/Golf, KGJ Baseball, Smash...god what a great system.
i had 64 and it was pretty great. In my opinion, the best zelda game was actually 'A link to the Past' for Super Nintendo. Sorry to derail. My favorite N64 game was probably golden eye. Playing mulitplayer mode takes me back to the good ol days...
I wonder if the N64 can genuinely be called the Goat?
It was twice as powerful as it's rivals at the time of release, but it didn't have great 3rd party support. Most of the best games were from Nintendo themselves, or Nintendo backed companies like Rare.
