Went with OoT although I'm kinda thinking maybe I should have gone with Mario Kart. Just so much multiplayer fun on that.

OoT is f***ing godly though. So many awesome memories. First time in Hyrule field, growing up, getting Epona etc etc. The entire game was such a joy to play and I played it to death. Well everything but the Water Temple is pretty fun.

Diddy Kong Racing my first game i played for the n64, played it alot with mates.
Hireing out a n64 from the video store and getting Pokemon Snap was awesome, gotta love throwing apples at Pokemon.
Later I got to have a go at good old Golden eye and Perfect Dark and Smash Bros. Many hours spent on these guys as is the same for most you i would guess.
Gaunlet Legeacy once lead to me and 3 friends playing it so long that we just all passed out trying to beat it non stop.

Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon i brought the walkthrough for this game but never the actual game played it now though so good.
I havent played Clay fighter cause i got mine from cashies for $5 still sealed in wrap.

Ahh Good Times.

No Micro Machines in there? Well I guess it was pretty crap.

I always remembered when I was a kid living next to my friend who had N64.
He'd come over, we'd duke it out on the PS1, I'd go over, we'd grind Micro Machines two-player for hours.

Ugh. He was always that "My dad works at Nintendo!" kid too, now that the memories come back.

Mairo Kart with family and friends was awesome :) i always chose Bowser even though he was slow.. I just liked knocking people out of the way. We would always go through the cups/battle & try and beat each others map time on time trials.. I couldnt use bowser for that though :(

We also played alot of Bond 007, I guess you could say that was my first FPS game (aside from doom..)

Popping the Lylat Wars cartridge in for the first time and playing was a pretty cool experience.

I would say Ocarina of Time, since that ranks generally higher IMO, but I played it on Gamecube when it came packaged as a bonus disc with Wind Waker, therefore it doesn't really relate to my memories of the N64 in particular. :)

I never had a N64, but a mate did. And i remember mostly Goldeneye, and Zelda OOT. Goldeneye was bloody good back then..
I remember also Mission Impossible game that was quite fun, and snowboard kids.

Gaunlet Legeacy once lead to me and 3 friends playing it so long that we just all passed out trying to beat it non stop.


Dark Legacy was the PS2/GCN/Xbox Gauntlet ^_-

I would pay lots of monies for a new (good) Gauntlet Legends. If my mem pack hasn't died I still have every class at level 99 (yes, I sunk, way, way too much time into that game!).

N64 was definitely the king of multiplayer. So much of my teenage years disappeared into Goldeneye, Mario Kart, Diddy Kong Racing, Pokemon Stadium, WCW vs NWO World Tour, Perfect Dark, Gauntlet Legends. The day I got Quake II second hand me and my friends said good-bye to our afternoons for a good six months. (probably other games too that I'm forgetting!)

I think the beauty of the N64 was four player games. Having languished with two player games for so long it was a revelation that everyone could play (or, at least, with four controllers you pretty much always got a turn after one round).

Sadly, I don't think I'll ever play as much multiplayer games as I did during my N64 years (I guess being a young teenager you have a f*** load more free time to sit around doing only gaming . . .).

Heck, I still remember how glorious it was reading a kid in my classes N64 Gamer magazines. So fun learning about upcoming games!

Also: Shadowman. That game was a revelation to me, a revelation that I never finished as it was clunky as f*** (even grabbed a PC ver a few years back but couldn't handle it).

Special mention: Operation Winback. That game was awesome sauce.

I had very few N64 games, but they were all awesome: Perfect Dark, Goldeneye, and Pokemon Puzzle League (because it was a re-skinned Tetris Attack). I still own them actually, even though I've not played them in years.

Goldeneye, Mario Kart 64 and Ogre Battle 64.

I had always wanted to play Ogre Battle 64, but I don't think it was available in NZ. I didn't get to try a Tactics Ogre game until the excellent Tactics Ogre: The Knight of Lodis on GBA.

f*** yeah, the N64 magazines used to be so good. I used to get free N64 magazines because my parents knew the dude running a place that sold magazines. I still vividly remember reading the previews for Banjo Tooie, Majora's Mask and Snowboard Kids 2 and nearly dying with anticipation. sh*t was so much more exciting than nowdays hearing about everything on the internet.

I had a JAP N64 and imported a US copy of OB64. Great, great game.

I loved my Nintendo64 as it was my first console where I was old enough to play the games properly.

Ocarina of Time is probably number 1, I remember having my friends come around to check out this games and going around to friends houses to help them when they were stuck somewhere.

Still play it to this day, just finished the Fire Temples the other day.

Ocarina of Time

Super Mario 64

Mario Kart 64

Diddy Kong Racing

Banjo-Kazooie

Star Wars SOTE

Jet Force Gemini

Super Smash Bros

Majora's Mask

Goldeneye 007

Perfect Dark

Conker's Bad Fur Day

Mario Party 1

 

And the list goes ever on. N64 and PSone are two of my favorite consoles of all time and really influenced my love for video games during that period of my life. I was a huge Sonic fan and Sega fanboy during the Megadrive days but when my Mum bought me an N64 my life changed after that and Nintendo really showed how to progress from 2D to 3D in the most memorable way with some of the greatest games of all time.

 

This is why I can't understand all this hate Nintendo gets these days. Their games are still fun and deliver on great experiences but sure their hardware lacks the specs of the other 2. I put it down to a new generation of kids who hit the age of 10 when the PS2, Xbox and Gamecube were out and because Nintendo was considered the average console of that generation change it has stayed that way in their mindset because Nintendo isn't seen as cool anymore, its as simple as that.

 

I'm glad I was born when I was and have grown to appreciate each console for their positives and their negatives. My gaming life wouldn't be the same if it wasn't for Nintendo, Sega and Sony, but the N64 has instilled in me to always trust in Nintendo, whatever type of console they release you know you will get the genius games that make them still relavent in a time of change and uncertainty in the gaming world.

 

Psone and N64 are two of the greatest consoles that complimented each other perfectly during that era of gaming. If you owned both you know what I mean and still feel a strong love for theat era in gaming history.
