N64 Games

Introduction:For the no one who reads this, I've decided to keep on the path I've started and continue listing my five favorite games from each Nintendo console (not counting handhelds) that I own. The N64 is one of the better systems to ever come out and while I have my personal problems with the system, like the awful controller or the lack of RPGs, it's still one that I consider among my favs and will be fun to stroll down memory lane and list the top five favorites. As always, one per series and again, not franchise though that would certainly help make this list less of a Mario-fest.

  • 01

    Mario Kart 64

    I love the Mario Kart series, plain and simple. Even though I think the original stinks, it's sequel absolutely killed it. It's by far one of the most fun racing games I've ever played and one of the golden stars of the Mario Kart series (I'd probably only rank one game higher than it).

  • 02

    The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

    When you see a list like this, your first thought is probably is he/she going to put Ocarina of Time or Majora's Mask (or if it's not one per series, it's which one will be higher). Well, personally, Majora's Mask is the much more engrossing game. For me, it all falls down on emotion. Out of all the Zelda games I've played, this is the only one managing to get me emotionally involved with what was happening. I won't ruin it but the story of Skull Kid really hit home with me and I really loved it. In fact, can you even think of another sympathetic Nintendo Big Bad. I know it was only one game but I can't think of another character with that much depth. Which is sad because most games have the no-depth Ganon as the main villain, who I couldn't care less about even if he and Captain Falcon go to the same dojo. So then, why is it only number two, well mainly because it's been quite some time since I've played it.

  • 03

    Banjo & Tooie

    Honestly, both games in this series are pretty equal that Tooie wins out mainly because I really like several of the multiplayer games. Not much needs to be said about these games, just Rare's magnum opus of 3D platforming games. It's a shame that when it came time for it's resurrection, they attempted to gild the lily and ended up ruining what made the originals so excellent. These games have aged wonderfully and I recommend them to most anybody.

  • 04

    Super Smash Bros.

    Now here's a game that hasn't aged as well. I love this series, trust me the next two lists will show that but this one just isn't anywhere as fun anymore. The sequels are both leagues ahead of this one and it just doesn't hold up. But it's still number four well yeah, it doesn't hold up to the standards it once set but it's still pretty fun and I have a ton of memories with this one so you know, nostalgia. I will say several of the stages here are among the best of the series (I'd love for Hyrule Castle to make a return in the new game).

  • 05

    Mario Party 3

    Mario Party 3 is the third installment of the Mario Party series (duh) and it's also the strongest in my opinion. The cast is great, though granted improved upon later). The maps are all great, the story mode is fun & the extra modes are fun to. Of course though, the heart of the Mario Party games are the mini-games and this definitely has the best (the only argument I'll listen to is the 2nd game). The only thing I miss from the second game is the different costumes for each map everyone had. Not exactly a reason to put it over the third.




Final Thoughts

A little tougher to decide than SNES but still fairly confidant in my list. I tried to keep things concise this time around as I do want to make some income on this site and I feel like my length is probably a detracting factor. Well, anyway thanks for reading & if you have a different list than mine, let me know in the comments!
