Greatest Nintendo 64 Games

The Top TenXW

1The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

This is the best N64 game without a doubt, it is like a god walking among mortals. It is an absolute classic. The soundtrack is arguably the best on the console, it has great controls, Link moves around swiftly and in a controlled manor. And it has a great story line, much better then most games on the list. I'm looking at you Super Mario 64. And once you actually beat the game, there is a bunch of side quests and things to collect to keep you going for a long amount of time. Needless to say, this is the best Nintendo 64 game out there and a must buy for people looking to go on an epic adventure in the world of video games! - mtndew37

It's amazing, full of plot twists, lots of action, plenty of touching moments, great controls, great graphics, wonderful bosses, awesome dungeons, and overall a great game. Did I forget to mention that it has lots of action, plenty of touching moments, great controls, great graphics, wonderful bosses, awesome dungeons? Also don't forget the plenty of touching moments, great controls, great graphics, wonderful bosses, awesome dungeons.

I really really really really want to vote for Perfect Dark, Conkers Bad Fur Day and Jet Force Gemini (too many great games! ) as a joint first place, but ultimately Ocarina Of Time changed my perception of what a single player game should be. It was flawless at the time of release, and still holds up well today. Nothing has ever felt so dramatic in a computer game as the first time I encountered Hyrule Fields!

Its probably not the number one best game the 64 game has to offer but it makes the Top 10 on any day

2Super Mario 64

The N64 does not have the best graphics I agree. But even if you weren't born in the 90s, or even weren't alive at that time, it gives you a hatred for this sick generation. You crazy PlayStation maniacs don't understand this nostalgic feeling. Nintendo is a company, not of graphics, or the best console of the year, but of nostalgic feeling, and that's exactly where the core of Mario Brothers is. The only bad thing about Super Mario 64? No multiplayer. But that's okay, because you and your friends can take turns throwing that dreaded penguin off the cliff. In my opinion, the N64 is a better console than the PlayStation 4. Not graphics, not games, not how many women you can kill on Grand Theft Auto, but for NOSTALGIA! Super Mario 64 has so much complexity, and the graphics of its time weren't heard of, it was phenomenal. And it still is. Take a break from the politics, the bills, the stress of this world, and Hillary Clinton rallies, and just drag out your dusty N64. Bring back the ...more

Too many great games to choose from but I pick this. The best games for n64 are this, ocarina of time, goldeneye, perfect dark, conkers bad fur day, banjo kazooie and tooie, paper Mario, donkey kong 64, and starfox 64. - themetalfan666

Ocarina of Time gets 9/10 stars.

Goldeneye 007 gets 9.1/10 stars.

Perfect Dark gets 9.1/10 stars.

Conker's Bad Fur Day gets 9.2/10 stars.

Banjo Kazooie gets 9.4/10 stars.

Banjo Tooie gets 9.5/10 stars.

Paper Mario gets 9.2/10 stars.

Donkey Kong 64 gets 9.3/10 stars.

Starfox 64 gets 10/10 stars.

Super Mario 64 is the top 1 best video game ever and gets 100000000000000000000/10 stars at least.

This video game is the top 1 best video game ever because of its graphics, voice acting, levels (especially Shifting Sand Land and Snowman's Land), the music, the controls, being on the N64 and the perfect gameplay! I can't believe this game gets so much hate! IGN gave this game a 9.8 & etc... This video game deserves 10000000000000/10 stars. There's nothing I don't like about this video game at all! It's so perfect and it has the best secrets in a video game EVER! The N64 has the best video games ever, especially Super Mario 64! Its boxart is perfect! Everyone vote it up, please! This game is the epitome of fun and I especially love the Wing Cap music out of all other music tracks. This video game is way better than every other game. It has no flaw at all! Please give me 10000 thumbs up at least.

Screw ocarina of time this game is better

3Super Smash Brothers

You take Super Mario mix it with some Metroid and a little of The Legend of Zelda you get the greatest n64 game, no question - anthonybecerra831

Smash Bros. is number one to me! - Stephen2

the ssb series is the best but his one is the best out of all three. A classic game - bluemachine

The game that started it all, but is still better than the new versions! - PianoQueen

4The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

I don't know. I've always found Ocarina somewhat overrated because everyone seems to like it for the exact same reason. I find this to be a bit under-appreciated because I think that this just has so much more to offer.

A Great Sequel To Ocarina Of Time

In my opinion Majora is better than ocarina. But ocarina of course steals the show. Has to be top 3 easily! The only reason why people say that Majora's mask isn't that good is because their comparing it to much to ocarina of time. In fact, everyone seems to compare everything to Ocarina of time! Majora's mask is(in my opinion) underrated. Plus the side quest are better than Ocarina, don't even argue. But the true reason why is...IT'S SO SAD! I'll have you know that I played Majora's mask, and I only cried for ovr 24 hours!

In a way, it surpasses OOT

5Banjo-Kazooie

same here mrgmo7 I wanted to vote for star fox. but I remember d just how fun this great game was. how I always played it had the best music and gameplay. and when you finnished the game there was always something to do left. even if there wasnt it was still fun as! - browney115

Top of the top. This game may not be as complex as other games of its genre, namely banjo tooie or donkey kong 64, but that is what makes it so great. It isn't tedious at any moment and it is fun to play time and time again. Unlike tooie or donkey kong I don't ever get bored in this collecting game. It also isn't as repetetive as super Mario 64 and it doesn't require months of time like OoT.

I really love this game. It has really good music throughout the game. And it really puts a challenge to finding all the jigsaw pieces and music notes. Overall a really good game.

This game is so awesome. Banjo Tooie is MORE AWESOME

6GoldenEye 007

I grew up off this game and it never got old -

Best Fps EVER And One Of The Best Games Of All Time

This game pretty much summed up my entire childhood...

4 friends, 4 controllers; stack, pistols, license to kill = a lot of fun!

7Mario Kart 64

WO. This is the most awesome game ever! SHOULD BE 1st! Yeah I love Mario! It us like the best ever! The tracks are pretty cool and I like special cup the best as it is so much more complex compared to the other tracks..

I wanted to vote for Ocarina of Time... because its such an amazing game. But then I seen this one and remember all the times when I would play it. It is so much fun. - MrGmo7

Countless hours of racing with friends back in the day, loads of memories! Trying to get lightning to make your mate small before the jump and trying to boost through the hole on the beach, very competitive and never gets old even in 2013

Simply number 1, you can keep playing this for hours.

8Conker's Bad Fur Day

This game is absolutely fantastic. Still holds the place as the funniest videogame ever made along with Monkey island and just like that games delves into terrific pathos and tragedy and actually pulls it off without seeming out of place. Plus the gameplay is perfectly functional although has dated slightly just like most n64 3d platformers.

Oh and the multi-player is on the same level as goldeneye - togutas

Conker's Bad Fur Day has got to the greatest game I have ever played. It has the most hilarious moments in all of gaming history and has a bitter-sweet ending. Sure it has its problems like the difficulty of some levels, but it just makes the game all the better. The music is just beautiful, I find my self humming that over-world theme Windy over and over again. It is just the best game on the N64 and beats all the more modern games out of the water.

Conker T. Squirrel is THE greatest video game character of all time. The story was a very well told tragedy that was very funny. The multiplayer was, I belive, the greatest on 64, surpassing even perfect dark and goldeneye. And the graphics were simply amazing.

Its fantastic writing, stellar game play and surprising variety make bad fur day one of my favorite games of all time, let alone on the n64.

9Paper Mario

My FAVORITE game of all time. It has such a large replay value and a story that will keep you hooked. The different partners and their abilities make for some unique puzzles and on top of that this game has a killer soundtrack. A truly 5 star game!

I just love how they mixed RPG elements with a superb platformer! Paper Mario all the way! - Oreanta

This might be the greatest RPG game of all time. It has great replay value and can be played over in many different ways. - babbott15

Best rpg ever!

10Star Fox 64

How the hell did this fly up to number 49, by the way no pun intended.

The original star fox pushed the limits on gaming. This game did that and more. #11? This is one of Nintendo's finest.

This is one of my favorite games of all time!

11Donkey Kong 64

FAVOURITE FUDGING GAME EVER! I love the game and how it's goodness lasts a long time. My cousins and I bonded so much over our shared file when we were young 'uns trying to get every golden banana. It's the kind of game where you can finish the game and fight the final boss battle and whatnot, but wait! There's still more stuff to do! Its also got huge levels and interesting characters. Mother of mercy

My favorite game of all time. Amazing music, great graphics, HUGE world to explore, 5 awesome characters, and good controls. Every inch of this game is a sight to behold and every banana collected feels like a true achievement in this immersive adventure.

This game is so great oot was better but this one has everything it has hours of play time. This list should say OOT DONKEY KONG 64 SUPER Mario 64 MAJORAS MASK SUPER SMASH BROS GOLDEN EYE THEN BANJO KAZOOIE.

Ahh... This game... So many memories and a brilliant soundtrack to boot. Just listen to Hideout Helm.

13Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

This game is amazing...by far the best Kirby Game too! - kinnij7204

OoT is my favorite, but this deserves higher.

I love this game and it deserves to be higher

14Diddy Kong Racing

Seriously how at all is this number 16. This is way better then Mario Kart or any of those racing games!

This game needs to be higher on the list. - evoxpisces

I don't see where's the good in this game. This is so bad. I can assure you nobody played this more than once in my town.

One of my favorites of all time

15Pokemon Stadium

If you didn't have certain mons with certain attacks the game would punish you for playing with your favorites. But watching them moving and not just showing their backs in battle was the best thing ever as a kid.

LOVE this game should be higher on the list

Its all about those mini-games. -

16WWF: No Mercy

You don't have to like wrestling to like this game, one of the best multiplayer games, especially the royal rumbles

Best Wrestling Game Of All Time And A Great Caw

Best wrestling game of all time. Skipped so much school and pulled my first all nighter playing this. As a kid, reinacting what I saw in the attitude era was the coolest thing in the world. REMAKE PLEASE!

17Pokemon Stadium 2

Nobody will agree with me when I say this, but this is my favorite video game of all time. Great mini-games, big time challenge, and a helpful school. Free battle is where I spent my whole childhood and imagination.

I agree this game is amazing I love it I'm suprised it didn't get 5th

Both Pokemon Stadium games are amazing.

18Banjo-Tooie

I actually played this game before playing Banjo Kazooie, and this game was what got me into the series. This was my childhood, this game is what made me. The storyline, the action, the puzzles, the adventure, it made the game so complete for me!
At least in the top three for me.

This game is probably the best n64 game there is besides ocarina of time and super mario

This game was awesome! It's a shame its sequel wasn't so good though...

How is this not number one?

19Perfect Dark

Bad frame rate and poor story. Fix these things and you have yourself a perfect game! Hell, even with these things the game is stunning! The weapon variety, the soundtrack, the various game modes, Co-op and Counter-op (still yet to see that mode elsewhere) and the multiplayer... sigh...

Look this game is far superior to Goldeneye 007,with far more replay ability better lighting effects high polygon models a better story.
It had lots of other modes to play and far improved multiplayer, as it actually had artificial intelligence really.

Pretty much like a sequel to Golden eye. Overall was an awesome game. -

20F-Zero X

So fast and so much fun! This game was perfect in it's simplicity. Nintendo made the right decision to omit weapons and complex track design. Instead, this game focussed on having a super slick framerate and clear (but basic) graphics. One of only a few racing games where every vehicle handled completely differently. This game rewarded practice ; mastering sliding round corners, boosting and jumps were absolutely key to success.

How can this game be so far in this list?!

Mario & Princess Daisy needed to at least make a cameo in this game.

The only F-Zero I actually like. I love this one as much as Mario Kart.
