Re: Child of the 80s: Nintendo 64 Rules!

Shouldn't this be "child of the 90s"?

Yes I agree, N64 did not come out until the 90's

Re: Child of the 80s: Nintendo 64 Rules!

For the record I get why they did it this way but it's still kinda weird. Why not aim this at kids who grew up with it as their first system? I loved N64 but by the time it came out I already experienced other systems and it was just the next step. To a kid of the 90s it must've been epic, like NES was to me.

Re: Child of the 80s: Nintendo 64 Rules!

N64 sucked, I bought mine and was so disapointed I didnt even bother buying a memory card. The simple fact that there were no rpg's is enough to brand the system a failure.
Children of the nineties, you got screwed.

In fact, I don't think I ever even owned 1 game for it, I'd rent one every weekend and not a single one of them warrented a purchase.

Re: Child of the 80s: Nintendo 64 Rules!

The guy writing the articles was born in 1980 and is writing them as if he was the age when he first played the system. So it is supposed to be written by a 16 year old in 1996. Still mostly a child of the 80s, even though he had 6 years of the 90s under his belt.

I hated N64 and think it marked a bad turn in video games that they still haven't fully recovered from.

Do you think the 3DS is yet another bad turn since it's moving into the 3D thing? I was wondering that the other day since I've heard a few of you guys talking about how 3D supposedly hurt gaming.

Re: Child of the 80s: Nintendo 64 Rules!

The 3ds in no way will hurt gaming, it's simply a visual thing, I don't think this is going to be a new style of gaming at all really. From my understanding companies are not changing anything besides making thier games 3d compatible. The 3d slider can be turned off completely if it gives you a headach (I hope to god it doesnt). But anyway in my opinion it's impossible for this to take games down a wrong path, again.

Re: Child of the 80s: Nintendo 64 Rules!

That sounds fishy to me steven. 3D presentation is the current trend much like 3d graphics was the trend around the time of N64. Maybe things won't work out the same way but it seems to pretty similar to me. I wouldn't be surprised to see game companies rushing to jump on board the new shiny gimmick and the older gamers waxing nostalgic about the good old days before things were in 3D. The more things change the more they stay the same?

Re: Child of the 80s: Nintendo 64 Rules!

Maybe, time will tell. I really can't predict how I'll feel about it until I try it. But I think my original point is still valid, being that gameplay won't change, so if you don't like the 3d then just shut it off, and your left with today's gaming.

Re: Child of the 80s: Nintendo 64 Rules!

It may be an optional thing but it is called a 3DS for a reason, right? I'm not saying it's a bad thing at all btw. I just think it's funny because it seems like the people bashing previous 3D gaming ventures as ruining gaming are eating up this new 3D gaming idea. Well not Kong, I don't think he's into the 3DS.

Back when I was like 4 or so, we got a N64. It was alright, but I found myself switching back the the SNES many times.

I really didn't like the N64. Out of all the games I only liked Pokemon Puzzle League, Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, Pokemon Stadium, and Pokemon Stadium 2.

Re: Child of the 80s: Nintendo 64 Rules!

Yeah, I wasn't crazy about the N64 either. I stopped staying current with my gaming because of the N64. The Mario and Zelda were pretty okay but besides that, meh.

I think the N64 is mostly for nostalgic FPS fans.

Re: Child of the 80s: Nintendo 64 Rules!

I guess I'll be the only one who says I love my N64, I probably sank more gametime into that machine than all of my other game consoles.

Nope. It was 64-bit through and through. Although this was pointless and stupid for its time. Most games executed 32-bit code to save space on the ROM.

Re: Child of the 80s: Nintendo 64 Rules!

As a kid from the 90's n64 was amazing. I remember my 1998 christmas better than anything since it was the only time my bros and I ever got a console boughten for us brand new. That night we got to play on the big 27" (big deal for us then) Tv and it was amazing playing Cruisn' USA.

N64 is probably Neck and neck with snes in terms of my favourite console. I rented games constantly that I probably could have boughten each game like 8 times each for some. Although at that age our parents paid for us to rent something every time we went half the time. The n64 for me was racing, my bros and I clocked so many hours into San Francisco Rush & Rush II that it's insane.

Destruction Derby, Rush games, Diddy Kong Racing, Mario Kart 64, Extreme G games, Offroad challenge, Cruisn' USA, to name a few. I adore every one of these games now because these are the games we rented over and over again. Conker's Bad fur Day and the mario parties were memorable ones we rented as well for a good 10 years!

Perfect Dark is absolutely insane the hours we logged into this game, and the hours we still do. We play this game at least religiously once or twice a year for a few weeks. We have a combined total of at least 20,000+ hours into that game at least. Probably topping any game I've ever played... By one hell of a long shot.

There is so much greatness I can't mention but being a kid for this the n64 was a big deal for me and still is. I can't think of any other console I enjoy more to play with my brothers and friends, it is just a great multiplayer console and I love it.

I still play games from this console and I always will.

You're not the only one. I loved my N64 as well. Since I almost never play RPG's (unless I am watching TV. I get too bored otherwise.), that was never an issue for me.

I loved Goldeneye, Star Wars: Shadow of the Empire, Ocarina of Time, all the THQ wrestling games, Mace: The Dark Age, Turok, and manty others. I spent countless hours on those games, and although it was not my most played system, it's right up there.

Oh yeah, I remember Goldeneye.
Me and my brother played that game for days straight.

Boy do I miss that game...

My bro and I wrecked 4 controllers on Mario Party before we figured out that spinning the stick that fast is a bad idea.

Aside from the usual Nintendo franchises the N64 had a ton of random unique games that are awesome. Banjo Kazooie is probably the best of them, although Mischief Makers, Glover, and Tetrisphere are also cool. And these are just the ones I have. There was also Space Station: Silicon Valley, Blast Corps, Conker, and so much more.

Also, it has Majora's Mask, which has the deepest and most mature plot of all Zelda games. Too bad Ocarina of Time is so overhyped =/.

I don't think the 3DS is something you can just imagine. I would have to try it to know. If I had to bet, sight unseen, I would say no.

I don't think OoT is overhyped at all. I think it's one of the best Zeldas out there. I love the music too.

Re: Child of the 80s: Nintendo 64 Rules!

I remember Mario Party, I'd always invite friends over to play it and we'd ba at it for hours,
those control stick spinning games were quite the problem, I heard they had to make gloves
because they were giving kids bruses.

Now I always win at those minigames because I'm wearing gloves while the others are in pain
because of how brutal spining the stick over and over again can be.

But the game I played the most on the N64 was easily Super Smash Bros., I'm sure everyone
knows by now who I used the most.

Edit: I personally think that MM was better than OoT. The story was darker, the game was more
challenging, and the music was spot on.
