Remember the Nintendo 64 launch?

Man, I sure had some good times with Super Mario 64 and... ummm... uhh?

Well hey there was Star Fox!... in summer 1997... oh but what about Mario Kart 64 in Q1 1997? That was only a... 5 month wait...

Wow, unless you really loved Super Mario 64 (And/or Pilotwings), those guys were STARVED. Good thing they had a SNES because that got Kirby's Dream Land 3 in 1997 as well.

Say, doesn't Pandora's Tower come out in Spring 2013 for the regular Wii? That might be something!... yeah okay I tried. :(

I liked playing DK64 and Goldeneye on my PS1 also. Good thing Rare sold out.

That didn't help N64 sell much better either. Good thing Nintendo sold out to Microsoft's money and let them buy rare. But of course, you won't blame Nintendo for that, because that's not what fanboys do.

Nintendo was dying from the gamecube. Maybe nobody remembers they almost went under. They had to sell Rare. And they were taking a huge risk with the Wii.

Yeah in those early days N64 really sucked. After Mario 64 i went back to Snes until about 98 when Ocarina came out. The third party support was terrible then. Actually not looking real good with Wii U either.

Nintendo 64 3rd party did suck badly.

BUT if you were smart about what to get you'd know how to make the best of times back then.

Always go for anything colorful
Nintendo and Rare were always good stuff most of the time
Get the Wrestling games from AKI
Buy Ogre Battle 64 Goemon Pipe Ninja 64 ( The best mistake I ever made)
Have a PS1 on stand-by


I actually had alot of fun with my 64 because I alway had 3-4 players around. Mario Party and Mario Kart were awesome on 64 before they got watered-down to death.

My whole first year was just KI Gold, Starfox 64, Bomberman 64 and Mario Kart 64

Because the Nintendo-only hypocrites only talk about the Wii selling the most consoles. They ignore that N64 was a poor seller, Gamecube was a total flop, and that Nintendo was the nightmare of 3rd parties for the longest time. They ignore that Nintendo abandoned the Wii right after Skyward Sword released, and only localized Xenoblade when GameStop helped pay for it.

They are quick to bash MS over Rare though, or Capcom over the latest news that Nintendo's own servers will make MH3U region-locked. How that makes sense, even to fanboys, is beyond me.
