I thought rom and emulator talk was a good mod nazi way to get banned right quick which is why I've been dodging the issue. I don't promote the stuff, barely use it anymore, and usually out of laziness of not wanting to dig up a cart. I'd suggest trying a lot before going to a retro shop or online to buy stuff but wanted to play it safe.

Earthbounds a special exception until its released. Personally, I'd suggest looking online for videos, since old games like that are easy to judge on sight alone. At least, they are to me. Never regretted a single purchase. Really, getting retro consoles has made me give up my long history of piracy. I just can't stomach the thought of playing on an emulator, not when I can own the real deal.

Mickeymac is right. If a game is expensive and hard to find, then using an emulator is fine... so long as you buy it when (and if) it's available to you.

@Mickey - Fighter's Destiny is a decent fighting game, and it is no Mortal Kombat clone.

What's a good Nintendo 64 Fighters that's not a Mortal Kombat clone?

lol. You're out of luck. Good luck finding any Fighters, Horror games, RPG's and SideScrollers on the N64
If you won't those, than your best bet was the PSOne at the time. If you didn't have both systems during that generation you were clearly missing out.

Fighting game - there are over a dozen of them. One of them has to be good.
Horror games - There's Resident Evil 1 and 2, and a few more that I can't remember off hand.
RPGs - Okay, there's only 2, and the only good one is on the VC.
Side Scrollers - there's 4 or 5 of them, and they're all really good.

And I do have both Systems. I just want a fighting game on my Nintendo 64 is all.

Non-MK clone eh? Depends what you'd exactly call a MK clone I suppose. Pretty sure though that Killer Instinct Gold would be too much like MK to bother. Basically also, even the suckiest of N64 fighters all similarly for the most part are like MK in that they are side battlers, have some sort of way to kill the other guy (not just a KO), and like MK they come both in the 2D or 3D variety. I know it's of little help, but gamefaqs.com, n64, sort by fighting games and maybe you'll get lucky reading a few reviews or faqs.

There are Mortal Kombat clones that copy Mortal Kombat, and there are Virtua Fighter clones, which copy Virtua Fighter. I'd prefer the latter. I don't like Virtua Fighter, but its at least playable.

Lucky for me I have some friends who are HUGE Nintendo 64 fanboys, and they recommended me a few games, and outta those, I finally found two that interested me, and the best one never came out in the U.S.

My next Fighting Game - Flying Dragon.

Not at all a MK clone or a VF clone.
It's pretty much fully 3D, you can tear limbs off your opponents, and a fight sometimes ends early if you... rip off your opponent's head.

The move list is incredibly complicated though, so it's not for everyone.

I'm not into gorefests. That's why I don't like Mortal Kombat, or its clones.

Oh, okay, I don't think I have anything else to offer then - that, MK4, and SSB were my only fighters on the N64, I think.
Oh, I know!

Probably tho only decent one. But no, there were NO "good" fightinggames on the N64. No fighters from Capcom, Namco, SNK or Arc Systemworks... or SEGA

I'm well aware of that. I got Flying Dragon on my list, I think that should be good enough for now. Unfortunately, OCD is forcing me to find one more N64 game in general to put on said list so I can make it a multiple of 5. Anyone have any suggestions?

I would have said Smash Bros but I am betting you already have that.

Main Final Fantasy & Quest/Shinobi Team fan...but I do like many SEGA games and a few Nintendo games.

I can be cute if I want to be, but I choose not to...as it's not my style.

Yup. I just ended up taking off stuff from my list instead. I doubt I'd want all the Bomberman 64 and Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness anyways.

Ahhh!!!! Those are both excellent games.
Bomberman Hero, as well.

Not in my book. Not by the looks of it.

At least get Bomberman Hero, its single player was pretty entertaining imo (though it has no multiplayer).
Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness has such a great soundtrack and atmosphere that I really think you're missing out by not getting it (then again, this is coming from someone who doesn't particularly like the franchise as a whole so ymmv).

What's your list looking like now? I could probably recommend a few that you're missing to round your collection up instead of down.
