There are many games that I wish to play again on this system, one of which is "POKEMON SNAP", They do now have the Zelda games remade which is AWESOME!

I don't go back to the N64 very often. The biggest problem for me is the contorller. In particular, I never liked the analog stick. It wasn't a very good analog sitck, and it had a tendency to wear out over time. I've also never really found a 3rd-party replacement that satisfies.

 

Pokemon Snap was a really good title. I played that with my brothers quite a bit when it was out. A lot of the other games I would want to replay on the N64 have been relesaed on Virtual console or as remakes. If Pokemon Snap hasn't been released on VC, it ought to be.

 

Now that I think about it, what would be even better would be a Pokemon Snap for the Wii U. The "camera" mechanic would work really well  with the touch screen. (holding it up in front of you to "frame" your shot)

A few games that come to mind would be Turok, Paper Mario, Yoshi Story, Mario Party, Pokemon stadium( use to bet on the mini-games with friends, lol), Donkey Kong 64, and good old Smash Bros. I've been tempted to hook up my 64 and play a few of the ones I own, but I am scared that they wont be what I remember. I've heard that some 64 games seem unplayable now due to the controls and frame rate. I've experinced this when trying to go back and play Goldeneye 007.  guess I'll just let the N64 days stay as I remember them ;)

Out of the big releases: Super Mario 64

Out of the underappreciated but hearalded: Ogre Battle 64

Out of the underrated/overly reviled: Tetrisphere

I think they could do Pokemon Snap for that or for the 3ds either would work! It was fun you threw stuff at pokemon XD

Another one I would like to see is Yoshi's World to be able to play!

Most of the good games for the N64 got remade for the 3DS or put up on the Virtual Console.

When I first read the thread title, that was one of the top titles that came to my mind too.  And not just for the first snowspeeder / Battle of Hoth level either, I enjoyed all the levels (except maybe for the Tatooine swoop bike section), and hunting down all the challenge points was also pretty engaging (though sometimes frustrating).

 

Of course most of the gameplay has been outclassed by other titles in the past 16 or so years, but still probably in my top 3 N64 revisit list.

We had "retro game day" a few weekends ago.  Myself and three other guys played N64 all day. 

 

Super Smash Bros., Mario Party (1-3), 1080 Snowboarding, Snowboard Kids 2, Mario Kart 64, Pokemon Snap, Pokemon Puzzle League, Killer Instinct Gold, Ken Griffey Jr. Baseball, all those wrestling game...

 

We had a blast.  Definitely a great day.

We play our N64 at least once a month for multiplayer. If you play it on a proper 240p display it still looks great.

I'd love to play Majora's Mask again.  Sadly I don't know what happened to my copy, so until I can get another I'll have to do without.

Bomberman 64, Bomberman 64: The Second Attack, Bomberman Hero, Jet Force Gemini, and Harvest Moon 64.

I so would download these titles if you could play them on your 3DS with the ability to remap the buttons.

So what is the best way to play N64 games on newer televisions/HD monitors?  I know that the N64 itself only had s-video cables.

I'm playing on a 47" LCD and even with composite cables it looks ok. Text is a bit fuzzy but not enough to bother hunting down new cables.

(cough) emulation (cough)

 

Seriously, as excited as I am for the upcoming Retron 5, it's too bad that it won't be including N64 support. We need an N64 clone system with HD output in the worst way. Of all the various systems, the N64 stands in that middle ground between SD and HD that makes it look really terrible on modern televisions.

SUPER MARIO RPG. Which I loved almost as much as Earthbound. I'm not 47 years old and decide to say "SCREW IT!" i'm just gonna find in online someplace and just buy it.  Until I found it costs close to $500.   F me. I'm pretty sure I sold that back to the store for 10 or 20 bucks in the day...

Two things: 1) Super Mario RPG isn't a Nintendo 64 game, and 2) It doesn't cost anywhere near $500.

Hmm, only one that comes to mind that I haven't played in a few years is StarFox 64. Should dust off the cart, but doubt I will.


No matter how good looking she is, some one some where is sick of her shit.

Fingers still crossed for that 3ds remake.

Does anyone remember super smash bros. 64? :]

 

I do. In fact, I went back and played that again recently. It's still good, but it pales in comparison to Smash Brothers Melee on the GameCube.

SSB was one of my favorite get together games on the N64, could pretty much bring anyone that was into gaming together.  I used to like it more than Melee at first, since the original was slower paced and I felt it was more methodical.  Then I realized subtle things about SSB that I saw was inferior, mainly lack of defensive moves and some character extremes (not so much an imbalance though) that really pigeonholed their playing styles, it made it hard to go back to it again.

 

Plus I also realized how overpowered throws were in the original, and matches became more focused on those than the character specials and combos.  Still a great game, just prefer playing Melee if given the choice.

Blast Corps. I would say 007 and the wrestling games, but I have played those a few years back and they do not hold up well at all.

There are countless games I own in storage that I want to play again. But I remember back in the day I borrowed DK64 and played it endlessly. I want to play that again because that is one game I didn't play that often but loved.

Pokemon snap is def awesome. It's on the Wii Virtual Console, so there's that. I loved Star Fox, Mario Parties, Smash Bros, etc etc etc.

 

You know what else was really good?

WWE No Mercy. Oh man. We used to spend waaaay too many hours in that game. WCW/NWO Revenge wasn't that bad either. These 2 games can provide a ton of fun for hoooours. Especially No Mercy.

Bleh. I loved my N64, and I'd still play it often today if it didn't look like doodoo on my TV.

 

And I definitely agree. Those wrestling games were great. I played Revenge and Wrestlemania 2000 to death. I didn't own No Mercy until a few years after it came out, and by that time I was onto the Smackdown games on PS2 so it never got much play from me.
