I've played(and finished) all of them execpt Banjo-Kazooie, and Diddy Kong Racing. I'm planning on getting Kirby 64, Donkey Kong 64, and Mario Kart 64(eBay). I was wondering if there were games that anybody could recommend(Don't say OoT, StarFox 64, or Paper Mario, I have them on VC). :)

Hmmm. I would get if I were you:

Star Wars Rogue Squadron
Star Wars Episode 1 Racer
Star Wars Episode 1: Battle for Naboo

Extreme-G
Fighters Destiny
Mega Man 64
F-1 World Grand Prix
Harvest Moon 64 (If you can afford it.)

EDIT: Also, should I get BIS or Rhythm Heaven?

F-Zero X, Donkey Kong 64, Mischief Makers, Mega Man 64, Doom 64, Wipeout 64, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Banjo-Tooie, Pokemon Snap, and perhaps Command & Conquer 64 are all I can recommend with a straight face. Otherwise, you pretty much have all the essentials, and there's little else on the system worth bothering with, IMO.

Hey dude I forgot to mention that I also have Contra 4, and whilst it is good it doesn't have the kind of replay value that other games can provide over long term...

I'm still not convinced that Contra games have more than one stage.:P But that never stops me from playing them.:) ...usually...

Sure they do, mic. Contra III has six stages, and it's hard to conquer. Practicve makes perfect if you want to beat the first stage of any Contra game or clone. :3

I remember hearing about Amplitude. It's the sequel to Frequency, which I greatly enjoyed - one of the few music games I have enjoyed, actually. How does Amplitude compare to its predecessor?

I haven't played Frequency, but Amplitude seems very kiddie-ish at first. However, the gameplay and songs are aimed at gamers/music lovers of all kind. It's really weird how there are games that you think would completely fail because of one thing, but then the games actually succeed because of it (Amplitude not having a special controller made it easier to play, Metroid Prime not having dual analog stick controller made it open to more Metroid gameplay, etc).

Mick I'd toss VP:CotP above FFTA2 and Disgaea. I haven't played FFTA2, but it'd be much the same of the first (just apparently somewhat better). So the story is most likely irrelevant, the challenge nil, and the gameplay semi-dull (due to lack of challenge).

Disgaea has a nice sum of parts, but it's really confusing, and unfortunately plays too slowly. It's also very grindy, which compounds the woes of the slow.
In VP the combat is a touch on the slow side, but you're involved with the battles, rather than just choosing an option and waiting. The story continually moves forward, and there are three routes through the game, it's also fairly interesting as it's important to the game. The challenge is also a bit higher since you have a specific overkill total that is pretty much required to be achieved (it usually isn't too hard), but doubling the quota reaps greater rewards (which can get tough later on).

In tactics A2 you still have to have the weapon or item equipped to get the skill points for it. After you master the skill you can use it forever though :D That really didn't bother me because i only got the weapons with good skills not cruddy ones :)

The problem is some good skills go to really cruddy weapons. I don't like holding on to weapons for long when I could easily get a better one. I guess Tactics A2 is off the list.

I suggest the Proffesor Layton series. I myself hate puzzle games, yet I still enjoyed it [most of the puzzles were logic and not real puzzles. I like logic] I also suggest the mario and luigi RPG series. It was really fun, but I haven't played bowsers inside story yet. I suggest the electroplankton series for DSiware because if you bought them all [ten of them] for 2 dollars, it means 20 dollars for the cartridge. The original cartridge is nothing less than 50 dollars on ebay, and 60 dollars at gamestop. It's a great deal-saves you 50 to 60 dollars.

Just let it happen.

Also, rythym heaven is my favorite game I have ever played. It is fun, simple to control [anyone new can do it easily] and simply addictive. In most reviews people said it was hard, but it just starts that way. As soon as you start playing it, your sense of rythym improves greatly. Something I found was that losing and trying again wasn't frustrating. I would lose a level 5 or 6 times, but still want to keep trying. Just for the record I love music and play instruments so I had good rythym to begin with. That means it might not be as easy if you don't do anything musically.

Just let it happen.

Bumping to keep this thread alive and to avoid mutiple topic asking for recommendation.

Now my question. I can only get one game this Christmas and I'm trying to decide between New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Tiger Wood PGA Tour '10. Which one of the two should I get? Remember, I can only get one game, so don't suggest both and I would prefer if you've played both games.

You're not seriously asking us to choose between GOLF and MARIO for you, are you?
No, I haven't played Tiger '10 but I think the answer is still fairly obvious. Get NSMBW, then get Tiger '11 next year. or '12, or '13, or '18.

Like me. If I had five dollars right there, I would have boughten the system rightaway and be reunited with my favorite console of all time. Oh well, glad you got it.
