    I honestly really dislike the N64 and the PS2, as heretical as that sounds.

    N64's controller is total crap, and as someone who was a huge RPG fanatic back in the day, the PSX had a whole lot more to offer to me.

    PS2 is just an ugly-looking console to me. Although I love the DVD feature on it, I'm not captured by much of the PS2's library. Actually, most of that gen's games failed to really impress me much.

    Kinda off topic but when I did own both an N64 and PS1 we owned both Mario Kart 64 and Crash Team Racing and I gotta tell ya, Crash Team Racing was the better, more popular, and more played kart racing game, hands down, in our house.

    I will say that Mario Kart DS is excellent though.

    I will agree with those that say that if you're already an adult when you started playing the N64 (I was 29 in 1998 when we got one) I thought it was mostly a kiddie console compared to the PS1, a console I similarly have no desire to play again. Of course I was heavily into PC gaming in the 90's and no console was ever going to come close to the PC experience back then when Lucasarts ruled the planet and my gaming life.

    i was in my teens when the N64 came out and I disliked it from the get go. I had one, I had a bunch of games, controllers, etc but I just never really liked any of the games.

    I will admit that mario kart 64 is the best one they made. Yes I played lots of golden eye but it was still never awesome of a gmae just fun to sit around and play with people.

    I was 14 when the N64 launched, I was very happy to get it at that time, and I continued to enjoy many games on the system as I got older and still enjoy the system to this day, so meh to this argument that age plays any role in one's fondness or lack thereof of the N64.

    Also, I feel sorry for anybody who feels any games are too "kiddy" for them, unless we're talking edutainment games or something. If your maturity and/or masculinity is threatened by a cute, family-friendly game, then grow up. There's more to gaming than cursing, gore, and bouncing breasts.

    General, garden variety ignorance we can handle.

    Ineptitude regarding citation of content from other forums ... we chalked that up to the fact that nobody ever taught you the right way to handle those types of things.

    Differing of opinions on sensitive topics related to classic gaming (repros, emulators, etc.) we can handle.

    Unprovoked displays of sexism?

    Sorry, you're done. Good riddance.

    For me, its not that games with cute cartoon characters are the problem, I grew up with arcade games like Donkey Kong and pacman, very much cartoon style characters. Its the genre of game that was changing - I never really liked 3D platformers, RPG,s or action games so stuff like Mario 64, Zelda, or Banjo Kazooie just didn't appeal to me.

    In general though, I have absolutely no problem with "kiddy" games but they have to fit into the genre and style of game I enjoy, which weren't found on the N64, PS1 or other consoles after the 16-bit era.

    And just as an offside, I can't stand games with a lot of gore, violence or cursing either which is why most of the current gen turns me off too.

    So Needler got banned? I will say I kinda liked how he shook stuff up from time to time, but the last few weeks got out of hand. Glad he's gone.

    Aside from the Saturn an Dreamcast which I had mentioned earlier I would toss the Atari 5200 into that mix. I do, however, want to pick up a 7800 eventually since I have like 9 games for it I've never tried

    I think we're all capable of dealing with a myopic, abrasive, juvinile personality, as long as it has to do with games, game consoles, game collecting.

    There's room for opinions across the spectrum here to do with games.

    Sexism, racism, attacks on religion or any other assorted unprovoked bullying I have no patience or tolerance for.

    Again, good riddance to bad rubbish.

    The 5200?

    That system is the best Atari ever released. If you want 80's arcade goodness, there really is no other choice.
