    For all the N64 hatred spewing on this thread, I have one thing to say.

    Mario Kart 64

    Try that game with 4 players on a big screen setup and tell me with a straight face it was not a good time had by all.

    That's a good one but I don't have 3 other friends that would ever care to play it with me and I don't buy consoles for one game, if I did it would be Robotron 64 anyway.

    well to some extent all the 32bit and 64bit stuff looks pretty bad these days and the load times so yeah I could see not wanting to play that stuff but then so many awesome games on the psone and 64 (though many especially of the latter have become available on new systems) and some that have not been ported are worth obtaining these consoles for. If I had to pick a console I don't really ever need to have again its probably the neo geo pocket or aes much as I love the games they are everywhere and the costs are ridiculous for these and I've been there done that. Now an mvs....

    Xbox360 and Wii

    I used to previously own them as well.

    Another system I forever shunned is turbografx16 and jaguar. I never played them before and have no intentions to. Maybe if I came across them at the flea/yard sales for $10 buck.



    It hurts when some of you say N64. N64 was my most prime main console. I consider it to have developed the hardcore skills I have today. It was also the first 3-D console with one analog joystick. You either were the type that walked into walls endlessly or you were able to get control of the character/game.

    It's a good game, but do I need the console when it's just an updated version of Super Mario Kart which hasn't aged horribly at all? I don't play with other people so 4 players is a useless option to me.

    Forgot about the vectrex. Thing is so niche I think everyone overlooks it.

    I never knew about it till I watched one of Pete Dorr's youtube videos.

    The games play significantly different, especially the battle modes. Super Mario Kart battle mode feels absolutely nothing like the Mario Kart 64 battle mode, which is a good thing as far as I'm concerned because I don't like the Super Mario Kart battle mode much and lose interest in it fast while I can never get enough of the Mario Kart 64 battle mode.

    The Mario Kart series in general is kinda lame if you never do any multiplayer, but I guess if you're going to stick to single-player, then Super Mario Kart is the best one to go with. The cups in Mario Kart 64 are much too easy, even on the highest difficulty level.

    Every time I boot up my 3DO, I realize that the majority of the games on it were released on other consoles in a better form.

    It's still a neat piece of history, though.

    That's the thing, I just play single player games so most multiplayer games aren't that special. When people go on about how great GoldenEye is or any of the other multiplayer N64 games it doesn't mean much to me.

    Super Mario Kart is the type of game I play every few months for a few minutes at a time. A few quick play throughs is good enough for awhile, then I'll just move onto other things.

    I need Atari like I need a hole in the head (Any Atari). Still won't stop me from buying if I can flip it. I also need an Xbox like I need a disease.

    I confess, Im a N64 hater. I have to admit Mario Kart for N64 is an excellent game.
    The only problem I have with it is that I played it to death when I was in high school. Same thing with Goldeneye.

    None. I love video games, and that includes the ugly, the janky, the uninspired, and the just plain weird.

    You guys who are saying you'll never play the N64 again because of bad graphics. Jeez, you're giving me flashbacks to talking about the NES circa 1995-1996. People were saying the exact same things about systems 2 or more generations old back then too.

    Never play the N64 or PlayStation again? This is the classic gaming board, right?

    I think if people hate N64 its probably because they were older than 12 and so the kiddy nature of the console just wanst working for them. Almost all the best games are pretty much for kids.

    Wow, you guys hate N64 graphics? I guess you must really really really hate PS1 games.

    Anyway, I would say the worst console I played was Xbox. I was at a game studios party that a friend of my moms invited her to. SO I was in a room with an Xbox, 5 games, a whoooooooooooooole lot of chocolate bars and other candy. I played with the HUGE controller for giants hands, which I didnt mind too much. Halo was ok, but the other games they had were not good. I dont remember what studio it was.

    Man, a ton of trolls came out of the wood work here. I mean, I really cant say anything to people who dont like the PS1, N64 or cant understand how cool the Dreamcast is. Saying theres a ton of shovelware in libraries is moot because theres shovelware on EVERY SINGLE CONSOLE OR COMPUTER GREAT OR TERRIBLE. This thread gets a 1 star from me. I dont know how old you guys are, but honestly youre either too old and used to gaming in the 80's and 70's or youre too young and been raised on the PS3/360 generation to realize how revolutionary the late 90's consoles were.

    The only system I've played that I can say I never want to play again, I would say would have to be the Virtual Boy.

    I can't agree with your first statement. I was 17 when the N64 came out and I bought one at launch. Even after I claimed up and down that the Saturn was going to kill it. Also, not all the best games were for kids. I will agree with you second statement though. For reference, I own both.

    Well, I dont think you read my statement too clearly, because you pretty much agree with it. People who didnt want to bu ya kiddy console wouldnt like the N64, and not all their best games were for kids, but a lot of them were.

    The Sega Master System never did it for me, and probably still doesn't to this day.

    Most people who got a N64 and was playing it around release 1996 would be grown up by now.

    I believe N64/PS1 are fifth generation gaming consoles. People who played/owned these near release date will be in their twenties and up.

    I also wouldn't say the games are meant for kids. At least not any more for kids then Nintendo makes their games now.

    When you finally grow up you will understand, for you too will find that the N64 just can't satisfy the lust for blood that all mature adults possess.

    that is a really immature statement.

    Nintendo in general has always from the dawn of their existence been geared towards kids. Even till this day. That's due to their first party titles. Mario being a major one.

    I think the problem is you probably got your butt kicked in endless rounds of goldeneye. Or you're one of those people I was talking about. Hand them a new N64 game they never played and the N64 control and it's like watching a woman learn to drive. Running into every wall possible and has no control over the character or game.
