I knew a lot of gamers who really liked the wrestling games on the N64. Personally, I didn't see the appeal. Whenever I played them I would just make a beeline for the nearest folding chair. While I never understood the mechanics of those games, it was never hard to figure out "apply chair to face." A folding chair to the head is entertaining no matter which video game you're playing.

I just discovered the Treasure Game, Mischief Makers, and I'm sad that it's not rereleased on Virtual Console.

I think I'm gonna get Rocket: Robot on Wheels very soon. What a fun platformer.

Here's to a great year of gaming in 2014   :beer:

I grew up with the N64 and PS1 in the prime of my gaming. First played on a Genesis though.

 

I still own 24 N64 games at my dad's house. All cart only but most of the good 1st party titles. Very little shovelware.

 

A very good 2-payer co-op game I recommend is Gauntlet Legends.

 

I am almost done collecting for the N64. I just need a few titles. Zelda Majora's mask. Which I used to own as a kid but never finished.

 

And conkers bad fur day. It released toward the end of the N64's life. I was aware of the game from the very start and probably almost rented it but I still have yet to play it. And with the current prices I am not so inclined to pay so much. A cart only copy with a horrible label goes or like $50 nowadays and the game has yet to be ported. Earthbound was having the same problem.

I am surprised I was the first person to bring up CBFD.

The game companies need to port the popular ones otherwise people will play them on emulators.

 

Its annoying to see hoarders sitting on multiple copies of CBFD or earthbound and chrono trigger.

I honestly regret not buying a few copies of Conker's Bad Fur Day at an Odd Jobs (Amazing Savings) store 10 years ago. They were $8 each, though I didn't know much about it then.

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.

 

I had to steer clear of the Hori Mini because of my giant hands, so I can't personally recommend that one.  The GC-style replacement sticks are way too touchy unless you replace/reprogram the analog's circuit board...I found a guy who does it but he's not currently taking orders and you have to solder it in yourself.  There's another guy I found that makes GC-to-N64 converter cables but I can't find any input on how well they work.

 

My suggestion would be the MakoPad 64.  There are three things kind of wonky about it (offset C buttons don't work well for movement in FPS games, the Z button is mushy, and the control stick is tilted clockwise a few degrees so you have to push slightly up/right for up), but once you get used to them this controller is ace.  Great ergonomics, face buttons/D-pad are super responsive and the stick is nigh perfect: a metal base to prevent wear, a mechanical system that works identically to the OEM stick and an overall smoother range of motion.  I opened mine up and lubricated all of the plastic components and HOLY SHIT is it amazing.  I've been playing Snowboard Kids for 15 years, and the MakoPad lets me take turns I didn't think were possible.

 

There's a clone called the Super Pad 64 which looks identical but the build quality is worse (in my experience).

 

I knew a lot of gamers who really liked the wrestling games on the N64. Personally, I didn't see the appeal. Whenever I played them I would just make a beeline for the nearest folding chair. While I never understood the mechanics of those games, it was never hard to figure out "apply chair to face." A folding chair to the head is entertaining no matter which video game you're playing.

 

They replicate the flow/showmanship of an actual pro wrestling match much better than any other game/series (FirePro almost comes close).  I'm still waiting to find a bug-free copy of No Mercy so I won't comment on that, but WCW/NWO Revenge is fantastic fun with four players.

 

 

I've been getting back into N64 collecting over the past month.  Been testing out various analog stick replacements, upgraded to S-Video, bought an official cleaning kit and fixed my system's grungy cartridge slot, etc etc.  I have almost all of the major first-party games, so I've been grabbing the more niche titles that I can't find locally.  MISCHIEF MAKERS YOU WILL FINALLY BE MINE

Conker, Mario Kart 64, Mario Party 2 and 3, and Super Mario 64.  But the last game I played through again on the N64 was Pokemon Snap.  In the Pokemon MMORPG that exists only in my head, "Journalist" is one of the job classes available.*  I had every intention of going through DK64 during a recent retro urge but instead spent two days playing the original Donkey Kong game on the cart instead.

I never beat Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon. It's one of the few N64 games that require a memory card to save (which is bullshit considering it's a cart). There must be a problem with the game because I went through 3 different memory cards and 2 different game carts and got corrupted data every time. I really liked it but after 5 or 6 times of starting a new game I gave up.

 

If it ever showed up on the VC I'd pick it up and finally put this to rest.
