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.

I can understand that, it probably isn't that bad, but the problem is that I am a Castlevania fan, and an old-school one at that. In my eyes, Castlevania is supposed to be a straight-forward action game, not a Zelda clone. I was meerly going to get it for collection purposes, but the prices seem to exceed its true worth. I may get it if it comes to the VC, but otherwise I feel that its a part of Castlevania's history better left forgotten.

Anyways, here's my complete N64 wishlist, if you're still interested:

No Rush games? I definitely have to recommend Rush 2049.
Then I'd recommend Extreme-G (high-speed racer) and Robotron 64 (a remake of Robotron 2084).

I think I'll take another look when I got home and try to find games that I think are must-haves. Of the above 3, I think Rush 2049 is the only must-have, but the other two are quality titles as well. Robotron 64 can be played using two joysticks on two controllers!

The Dreamcast version of Rush 2049 is greatly improved over the N64 version, so I don't need the N64 version.

Extreme-G wasn't really anything special, if I remember correctly, and I can get the far better Extreme-G 3 on the Gamecube for practically pennies.

I really did consider getting Robotron 64, but after watching a video, it looked very slow-paced and mundane for a game of that type. Not my thing, really.

They're still good picks, just not for me. I do look forward to seeing whatever else you can come up with.:)

True. It's shame that about 50% of the N64 library is Nintendo/Rare...

Rush 2 is a much better game than Rush 2049, IMO, and is a N64 exclusive. So even if you have 2049 on the Dreamcast, you should give Rush 2 a try.

Actually, only about 20 or so games in the N64's library came from Nintendo - much less than any other generation. They relied much more on Rare, and even then they only put out maybe around 10 games. The problem is that they make up 50% of the games worth playing on it, and I didn't like half of what Nintendo put out, and I hated virtually every Rareware N64 game except for Donkey Kong 64 (and even then, that's mostly nostalgia talking). So basically my options are limited. In fact, I only have 15 N64 games currectly in my possession, including VC games, and I'm getting ready to sell half of them. Luckily its no longer my only console, but its still sad that I won't have much reason to play it like I used to.

@Mickeymac - if I remember correctly, the later levels are pretty intense in Robotron.
Obviously if you have XGIII and SFR2049DC there's no reasons to buy the N64 versions... yeah I'm going to have to double-check my games when I get home.

@StarBoy: your mileage may vary

The problem is that it takes way too long to get to that point. Smash TV, Robotron 2084, and I MAED A GAM3 WITH ZOMBIES IN IT!!!!!!1 all became very intense very fast, and I liked that about them. Robotron 64 takes far too long to get any good.

Okay, I'm not going through the entire 1000+ PSOne collection to try to find some good games, so I'll just ask here: Can anyone recommend some good PSOne games?

You managed to list two of the few PSOne I already have unfortunately, but Legend of Dragoon sounds like a good pick, and a cheap one too.

Sorry bout that lol. Yeah Legend of Dragoon is a good one especially if you like RPGs. IMO its a better RPG than FF7. The story is a good one and it is 4 disc long but I found myself still interested in the Story line as I went from disc to disc. So few games do that when they are that long. Another good RPG is Suikoden if you dont have that one yet.

Damn it now I am going to have to go and play Legend of Dragoon again.

You're right, I haven't played them. Thank you!

Anybody else have any suggestions?

Another good but might be hard to find is Alundra its a zelda-typea game. I remember playing that game over and over untill I loaned it to someone and never got it back.

Some other good RPGs are Breath of Fire III, Grandstream Saga.

Spyro the Dragon is a good platform game if you like those kinda games, also you cant go wrong with the first 2 Twisted Metal games.

Twisted Metal 2, Intelligent Qube

Edit: Apparently I.Q. is rather pricey ($50+) unless you get the Japanese import ($5-$15)
Unless PS1 is region-locked, I doubt buying the Japanese version would hinder the experience at all. You'd probably just hear "PERFECT!" in a different language.

The PS1 and PS2 are region-locked and there's no way to unlock them without going through some complicated and expensive process.:(

Lame. I can't believe I.Q. is so expensive. Oh! Some 3DO ports that are... almost as good on the PS.

Road Rash 3D looks almost as good as the Genesis ones. I'll be sure to pick it up, thanks.
