Who here was actually a Nintendo 64 fan?

Do any of you still play it? Anyone still love the system?
If so post up... and post what you like about the system.

The N64 had too much negativity... and this system was actually very good.

†B†V† :hat
I liked it, and still have mine packed away downstairs. Only thing that I actually hated was the $30 memory expansion that prevented me from getting Majora's Mask. Back then, at $10 a month for allowance, that was a huge deal....
Don't get me started on how much I love my N64. I started saving up so I could buy the next Nintendo(after GCN) but I decided to buy a few more games instead and play for years to come. I may be missing out but that's cool with me! All right N64!! :af
I loved my N64; games like Super Mario 64 and Zelda 64 may not be topped for a long long time...

Really, have any of you played a platformer since Mario 64 that you thought was better? I liked Ico a lot, but it was more of an adventure game... and still not as good as the ol' Mario 64.
I gotta admit here, in the N64 VS. PSone days, I was a PSone fan. I did end up buying a 64 due to peer pressure, but I was a PSone "fanboy". N64 didn't seem impressive to me back then, with the exception of Ocarina of Time, which remains today one of my favourite games ever.

Lately i've been playing a lot of Super Mario 64 and Goldeneye though, and i've realised that it did it have more than just the one gem. Strange as it may sound, I think I even like the N64 more now than I did in it's glory days. I already have plans to purchase Turok and Lylat Wars. :-\

There's also a few that I haven't gotten around to purchasing yet, including:

It is hard to believe you never bought that :)

That is still one of the best looking N64 games out. Awesome stuff.

I have played it, yeah. I'm not sure why I never bought it.

But I've always been a Nintendo fan more for Zelda than for Mario, anyway. I don't have Super Mario Sunshine, either, although I have played that as well.

I bought Donkey Kong 64 today, I remember quite liking it.
I never did get that game...

what was it like?

@ MAi..... so did you get far in the game?

I really liked Super Mario Sunshine. That was an AWESOME game.

It wasn't bad. It was a pretty good platformer but I didn't like having to do everything with all 5 characters. I can't remember what you had to do, but it was like collecting certain things with all characters and it got repetitive. Not on calibur with Donkey Kong Country, but still a fun game.
I finally beat the jungle in Goldeneye. I've been stuck on that level for a loooong time.

I love playing All Star Baseball 2000. I play like every night. I like it as much as O of T.

I got an N64 at launch. A friend turned me on to a deal at Service Merchandise, where a computer error listed them at like $49.99, so I preordered one. I picked it up, and it turned out they had to honor the price. So I got my launch system for $50, and I got a Mario 64 to go with it. That was $69.99 at the time.. I paid more for the first game than I did for the console.

The lack of good titles early on caused me to sell my system off, but I bought another around the time Rogue Squadron came out. It got most of its play from titles like Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Banjo Kazooie and Zelda. It became indespensible to my group when the AKI WWF wrestling titles started coming out. They were the multiplayer games of choice, and no other current wrestling game has garnered that kind of attention inside my circle of friends.

Overall, it was a solid but underlooked console. It deserved better software than it got.
You have never played Super Mario 64 :eek:? Sheesh, your just as bad as BV not playing DK64......I only kid

Well, Nintendo 64 was, is, and always will be, my favorite console, there is no doubt about that. Why? because all of my all time favorite games are on that system alone. Shadowman, Turok 1 an 2, Shadowgate, Mario 64, Goldeneye, DK64, both Zelda's, etc, etc, etc. I would sell any of my new consoles before I sold my 64, never!!!
I bought one on launch day. Loved it back then, many of the games are still favs of mine, the AKI wrestling titles are the best wrestllers I think still to this day. I actually need to get another N64 someday soon...I miss Harvest Moon on 64 heh.
