Hottest N64 Game (Write-Ins)

Postby Friday » Fri Jan 19, 2018 2:58 pm

Time to do another proper poll.

In keeping with proper aesthetics, I'm limiting this to 64 entries. (If we can get that many, the N64 didn't have the greatest library in terms of quantity)

Standard rules apply: No remakes, game has to have been released in US/EU only. As far as cross platform games go: I'll allow it as long as it isn't a shitty port that's clearly better elsewhere. Like you can play Starcraft on the N64, but holy shit no.

Let's get some of the obvious ones out of the way.

1. Mario 64
2. The Legend of Zelda: OoT
3. Goldeneye
4. Perfect Dark
5. Blast Corps
6. Banjo-Kazooie
7. Mario Kart 64
8. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
9. Conker's Bad Fur Day
10. Star Fox 64
11. Banjo-Tooie
12. Paper Mario
13. Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards
14. Star Wars: Rogue Squadron
15. Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire
16. Ogre Battle: Person of Lordly Caliber
17. Bomberman 64
18. Mischief Makers
19. Mystical Ninja Starring Geomon
20. Harvest Moon 64
21. Cruis'n USA
22. Doom 64
23. Super Smash Bros
24. Body Harvest
25. Diddy Kong Racing
26. Extreme-G
27. Guantlet Legends
28. Wave Race 64
29. Hydro Thunder
30. Jet Force Gemini
31. Mario Party 3
32. Castlevania 64: Legacy of Darkness

Because I'm limiting this to 64 entries (32 left) I'm going to say each person only gets to pick 3 games to submit instead of my usual fuck it whatever. Submit your favorites here!

I think you listed almost all of the ones we owned already.

Star Wars: Podracing
Pokemon Snap

(We didn't own the second one, but my brother and I managed to beat the entire game over 5 hours at a WalMart on one of those old demo consoles, lolololol. The trickiest part was figuring how to save the game through the console's force-resets every half-hour or so)

Hmm! Let's say, Goemon's Great Adventure, Hybrid Heaven, and... I know Castlevania 64's in there but I'd vote for Legacy of Darkness.

I changed it to LoD already, it's basically the same game, just with more stuff in it, so.

F-Zero X was alright, but I never ever forgave them for cutting the race length from 5 laps to 3. Such a simple change, but it made the game SO much worse.

Wait can I change Extreme G 2 to Wipeout 64? I knew I was forgetting a game that was my actual favorite.

Snowboard Kids for being the only good snowboarding / kart racer hybrid, including snowboard kids 2
Pokemon Stadium
Robotron 64 was actually pretty fucking cool at the time for letting you use two controllers to go full dual-analog

You've got Mario Tennis in there twice. Want to switch one of them for Mario Golf?

Wow, I actually read "Mario Golf" off the wikipedia list and wrote Tennis anyway.

Fixed.
