Hi everybody,

I've had this project idea that I've really wanted to work on for a while now involving N64 games, and I was wondering what do you consider the definitive games of the N64 era?

Right now I have all the Mario titles, the Zelda titles, Smash, Kirby 64, the Rare titles, the Pokemon games, and Star Fox 64, but I know I'm missing games that others would consider classics and I'm wondering what would you consider those games to be.

Thanks a lot everybody! :D

Drop Kirby, definitely not "all" Mario games (Not that they are bad) not the Pokemon games. Not Smash.

Yeah I am different.

And too fussy just to throw a blanket and say ALL Rare games (as much as I'm a HUGE Rare fanboy.


You want a list?
But I'm tired and busy and OK!
It's for a good cause.

The big 3:
Super Mario 64
Goldeneye
Ocarina of Time

The multi-player legends:
Mario Kart 64
Bomberman 64
Snowboard Kids
Mario Tennis

Single Player Gold:
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter
Banjo-Kazoooe
Jet Force Gemini
Wave Race
Blast Corps
Diddy Kong Racing.


I'm tired and can't be arsed writing anymore.
Have fun! ?

I agree Wave Race 64 needs to be in there. So many great games on the system it is so hard to narrow it down being as biased as I am.

I think Resident Evil 2 has to be mentioned because of the sheer size of that game. What was two disks on the PS1 fitting on a cart without much being compromised is incredible and shows the real potential the console had. It is just a shame so many game makers steered clear of the N64 due to the cost of cartridges.

Taking this list as a start I would add Majora's Mask due to its dark vibe (unique for a zelda game imo) and perhaps Mario Party (honestly don't if I should pick 1, 2 or 3).

I second Kamikaze, i'm one of those that believe Majora's mask was better and had more angles and more gameplay value than OoT
