Ps3's, Xbox 360's and wii's are all great, but I must say the last week I have been revisiting some of the classics on n64, snes, etc and I must say I have had much more fun then I would have had playing my Xbox the whole week or Call of Duty or anything the n64 had so many great games like Mario 64, banjo series, conkers bad fur day, the list goes on this console forever holds a place in my heart
What is it that makes a console good? Is it its performance? Is it its ease of use? Is it its styling? While these are all important aspects of a console, the most important feature to look at is its library of games. Or rather, how many exclusive games a console had from the PC for its time period, and how high the quality of those games were/are. Nitendo has excelled at this time and time again. Sure, Forza is exclusive to the Xbox and bloodborne is exclusive to the PlayStation. But almost every game on the Xbox One and PS4 is available on the PC. And the PC will play it better if you aren't using a "frat-top" that is better for viewing explicit material than playing video games. $500 will buy a PC that is faster than any console. Plus a PC is able to do a lot of other programs. What isn't a PC able to do legally? Play nostalgic games from the n64. The n64 is truly a remarkable console, and was revolutionary for its time. It gets my vote.
The 4 player split screen made it the very best multiplayer console ever created. With no need for memory cards, ultra-fast loading times, the first analogue joy-stick controller, the first rumble device for a controller and a catalogue of great games, this console is an easy pick for me. By today's standards this console shows it's limitations, however my dusty N64 still works just fine, and I would much rather plug in Goldeneye and play with my mates than a random stranger over the internet as is the current trend for consoles. What happened to 4-player split screen!?!
I don't care what you say the n64 has most of the games that started it all. You must not understand laugh out loud. Mario 007 zelda. Those never got boring to me like Call of Duty or halo does. They just don't get old. I love them I am also so glad I grew up with the N64 because it was the best time for video games.
OH MY GOD. HOW COULD THIS BE 3RD?! THIS IS THE GREATEST GAME CONSOLE OF ALL TIME WITH THE GREATEST GAMES OF ALL TIME! COME ON! OCARINA OF TIME HAS BIGGER DEKU NUTS (Snap! ) THAN ANY Call of Duty OR FIFA GREAT MIGHTY POO! (Snap! ) PS360 MORONS CAN GO DO A BARREL ROLL (Snap! ) INTO A GARBAGE CAN, BECAUSE THEY DON'T KNOW SQUAT! OCARINA OF TIME, SUPER MARIO 64, MAJORA'S MASK, LYLAT WARS (StarFox 64), GOLDENEYE 007, CONKER'S BAD FUR DAY! ALL OF THESE GAMES ARE REGARDED AS THE BEST OF ALL TIME AND MANY (OoT in particular) COMPLETELY OBLITERATED THE MARKET AND CHANGED GAMING FOREVER! WHAT KIND OF ABJECT DUNCE VOTES XBOX360 TURD OVER THIS?!?
I rest my case.
What other console has a popular video of a kid going crazy when he gets one for Christmas? NONE. Nintendo 64 will forever live on in my memory, and thanks in part to mine still working and getting regular playtime. - HALOOOOOOOO
By far the best, Yes I played this as a kid but that's not my reason or that would be kind of biast. I think this was the prime of gaming, it has got way too popular now. Developers charge you for added on content that could of gone on anyway. You see games like FIFA (there's no changes anymore) Call of Duty and assassins creed coming out every year. Nintendo is now struggling I don't no why their games are still the most fun and worth the most money and enjoyment.
But Nintendo 64 had it all. Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, Zelda oot, smash bros, dk,64, banjo kazooie and tooie. Goldeneye, perfect dark, diddy kong racing, wave race, Conker, Lylat wars. All these are classics not just great, legendary!
Xbox 360 is my second favourite because I think it took gaming to another level but sadly I believe that level now to be a bad move. Xbox One and Ps4 are going to show us how developers will rip us off more than ever.
Always loved to play Star fox 64 or Pokemon I'm 14 year old but I remember the time when I was 6 and played all kind of games on the N64
If you have never played on the Nintendo 64 you definitely missed something the best mario game ever is on the Nintendo 64
Nintendo 64 is AMAZING. Totally BLEW me and my friends off of my bed. Epic texture, (a little rusty) but awesome graphics, amazing games (my fave is super smash bros) and amazing value (to me its priceless) and ABSOLUTELY TIMELESS! The games were so good the DS and Wii tried to copy them but it wasnt the same. BUY IT IF YOU CAN also, it NEVER ABSOLUTELY NEVER gets red ring of death. Sure halo and black ops are good but classics RULE! Also snes (Super Nintendo Entertaimnemt System) is cool but no match for 64
Faith in humanity is restored! I really didn't expect the N64 to be at number 3, but I totally agree! Best, most creative games ever created: Banjo-Kazooie, Super Mario 64, Donkey Kong 64, Banjo-Tooie, Glover, Mario Kart..
The Nintendo 64 made me fall in love with video games. When I played other systems I thought video games were the most boring idea ever thought of. Then when I got this my feelings changed. I never saw another need then to play video games
Still playing this console in 2013, Nintendo and rare did a really awesome job.
I have never seen so much innovation and brilliant ideas in any other console. This really was the begining of a new era.
For me the most important console in videogame history, a lot of actual games are still based on their games.
How can three other consoles beat the console with Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, Goldeneye, Majora's Mask, Star fox 64, Diddy Kong Racing, and Donkey Kong 64. The Xbox only has shooters. This was also the first console with a control stick.
Nintendo 64 and GameCube are the best consoles ever but the 64 had better games like ocarina of time mario 64 star fox 64 and smash bros to scratch the
Surface with rares great games but best console ever
The endure-it-all platform. 15 years and mine works like if it was yesterday. Crashes, water, doesn't matter; not to mention their awesome and unforgettable videogames.
What,people?! Ask yourselves a question, what is the reason you play on gaming console? For the graphics, or for actually playing the games?! Xbox and Playstation graphics are all they can brag about. Where as Nintendo actually brags about the GAMES. Ya know, the reason you actually play gaming console?! N64 is the best system get it through your thick skull. Although Wii comes at a close second. Oh and one reason it automatically wins, is cause they made ocarina of time. So sorry Playstation and Xbox, you suckered.
This is the best console ever made with the best games. From Super Smash Bros to Mario Kart, from Donkey Kong 64 to Zelda: Ocarina of Time, from Goldeneye to Paper Mario, Nintendo 64 offered the best video games ever made.
This console has. So. Many. Great games! It has a cool logo and design and the cartridges are beautiful! Unfortunately the controller is kinda bad because of a really crappy analog stick... The graphics are really amazing but some games do have quite a bit of fog... Overall it's an amazing system that'd be near perfect if its controller had a better analog stick.
This is the best console ever! No doubts, legend of Zelda, Mario 64, incredible games with amazing stories that takes you to another world for hours and hours
The N64 is still in use even after all this wonderful years I'm still coming back.
Nintendo makes Remakes like Mario 64 DS, Star Fox 64 3ds, Golden Eye (Wii) and Zelda Ocarina of time 3ds for nothing. The Console had the most badass game library I can think of.
Dude this had the best games that were nice, difficult, and long! I beat the Call of Duty games the day I bought them. Come on who doesn't love to play hours of Donkey Kong 64, Super Mario 64, and some Zelda. Muliplayer is better with your friends next to you than at another house.
Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 are above this masterpiece? What has the world come to? Starfox 64, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Mario 64, Goldeneye.
N64, what can I say... My all time favorite console. Lotsa ground breaking stuff there for the time.1st fully 3-D console,4 controller ports,1st analog controller, rumble pack feature, upgradable memory with the expansion pack, the 1st and greatest 3-D platformer ever (Super Mario 64) and a host of FPSs that started it all for console. Sorry guys... Call of Duty and Halo got their inspiration from the likes of Golden Eye, Perfect Dark and the Turoks. I could rattle off 45-50 great games I own and still play. Don't get me wrong... I love my 360... But I keep on playing that N64. It truly was the golden age of gaming.
In short, Xbox 360 is honestly one of the worst consoles created. Nintendo 64 had the most quality games.
Never has a console had so many top games. Thanks to Nintendo and Rare we got probably 10 triple a titles on one console. It will never happen again.
