    Hey all, just sitting here watching some Sunday night football thinking about the good old days of the N64—totally normal, right? Anyway, let me know which titles are you personal favorites from this epic Nintendo era.

    Mine are:

    Donkey Kong 64 (Not quite a new DKC, but the next best thing)
    Super Mario 64
    Ocarina of Time AND Majora's Mask (Man, I loved that game)
    Super Smash Bros. (Duh)
    Goldeneye
    Gauntlet Legends (So many hours spent on this one)
    Conker's Bad Fur Day (Because... why not?)

    Oddly enough, I was never a huge fan of Mario Kart 64. Always preferred the SNES classic.

    No, never Pokemon Snap.

    I loved the Mario sports game for the 64. Tennis, Golf. Just good games
    Gauntlet was/is amazing.
    Blitz. There is no game as amazing as Blitz. Best buddy vs buddy game.

    Oh wait, forgot about the Wrestlemania games. These games were perfect. No more, one shade away from a Street Fighter game, wrestling games for me...ever...again. Just ridiculous matches with tons of back and forth.

    Hmm.

    I had to look this up to make sure it wasn't the same as the one I remember loving. It's not the one (I was right with Bomberman 64) but it does look rad.

    My sister and I played Bomberman 64 a ton! The single-player was like isometric puzzle/platformer and the multiplayer was more classic atomic man. Good stuff. Even the AI bots were awesome.

    Yeah. Bomberman Hero really differed from the normal bomberman gameplay, but it was a fun 3d platformer.

    I really liked Bomberman 64 too and spent many hours playing the multiplayer. Just didn't bother mentioning it again.

    Ahhh...

    Diddy Kong Racing
    Mario Kart 64
    Super Smash Bros.
    Starfox 64
    Goldeneye
    Goemon's Great Adventure

    I want to add Bomberman 64 to the list, but I'm not sure my feelings about it now are the same as they were back then. It's sort of on the fence, I guess.

    And hey, I'll admit that I really enjoyed Pokemon Snap. I never owned it, but I would go over to my -younger brother's friend's- house to play it! It's so cute, right?

    There was one wrestling game I would play when my older brother's friend came over, but I have NO idea which one it was, or what series or whatever it was from. I don't know if I remember enough about it to figure it out.

    I wish I had Gauntlet.

    Ogre Battle 64.

    Best RTS on the system.

    And as a guilty pleasure, Buck Bumble and Blast Corps.

    Oddly, I didn't have a N64 my aunt gave me a PS1. I did played the Mario 64 and Starfox 64 for hours at Walmart.

    I'm going to have to go with:

    Star Wars Rogue Squadron
    Jet Force Gemini
    Golden Eye
    TLOZ Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask
    Banjo Kazooie
    Star Fox 64
    Perfect Dark

    Fyi if you type in Halifax in the cheat code menu in Rogue Sqadron you get the milenium falcon.
