Here's another little known N64 game you should check out:

-Micro Machines 64 Turbo: A classic top down racing game. The controls are responsive and the gameplay is fast, hectic, and crazy. Since you're driving in toy cars, you'll be racing on a kitchen table in the middle of breakfast, in a school classroom, on a pool table, etc.

The multiplayer is the best part of this game. It even allows for 8 players via sharing controllers (1 person uses the D Pad, the other uses the C Buttons).

@Samasaurus Love Episode 1 Racer. I also used to really love F Zero X (I even wrote a review for it in Kid Pix where I gave it a 9.9 out of 10) but now that I've played F Zero GX, it's really hard to go back.

@JackEatsSparrows Never played Buck Bumble, but I've heard the theme song! Also, I think I might have a poster for that game in an old issue of Nintendo Power.

Oh N64. I consider that system to be my childhood defining console. I have a very good childhood memory associated with getting the system and I lost so many hours of life playing it. I am fairly content with my N64 collection; only missing a few gems like bomberman hero second attack. Only played two games that I regretted. Daikatana and superman. I was at the height of my superman famdom as I grew up on Lois and Clark and Superman TAS so that game was particularly egregious.

I went to a used game store, they had snowboard kids boxed for $80, i passed. Bought Micromachines 64 and International superstar soccer 64 instead.

@Mordridakon I buy my N64 games loose because I hate their boxes. They're a pain, flimsy, and not even good for storing the games in. There's a reason everyone threw them away.

The only boxes I still have are Mario Party 2, Star Wars Racer, Mickey Speedway, and the console box. I have the manuals for many of them though.

pft. No boxes for me. Got the complete North American set tho. Even got about 15 N64 games that are roms/hacks on cart. My favourite system growing up.

I remember when GameTek announced and then showed a prototype of Robotech: Crystal Dreams. Then GameTek realized good games like that take time and folded the project.
The ROM of the prototype is fun for a bit, though. Man, that game would have been awesome.

@JackEatsSparrows Ahh cancelled games and the N64, more than you can count really. I remember back as a teen, all the awesome stuff getting canned.

@Mordridakon I remember seeing a video of an unfinished prototype for an N64 game called Toon Panic. It looked pretty cool, kinda similar to Power Stone.

I often wonder what it would have been like if the N64DD released early on like it was supposed to instead of near the end of the console's lifespan. There was a ton of stuff planned for it that got pushed to other places.

@ReaderRagfihs Wasn't Majora's Mask originally a 64DD game that got made into its own regular N64 game? I seem to remember that it was.

N64 is a very special console for me because I grew up with SNES and N64. I have fond memories of both. Super Mario World still is the best 2D Mario game ever. Many of the N64 games are till as good as ever, especially remastered: Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Perfect Dark, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask... Diddy Kong Racing is probably the best "kart" racer ever. Nintendo should remake Super Mario 64, the best 3D Mario game. Who didn't have fun playing Goldeneye? And, like the OP wrote, there are many less-known games.

Who here has played Killer Instinct Gold? Many people say it's not as good as the first, but can only give vague/nitpicky reasons why.

I'm interested in trying it out because I have and really enjoy the Gameboy version, and remember liking the SNES version my cousin had.

@ReaderRagfihs I played it, but not really enough to give a good opinion. I was more of a Clayfighter fan then

@ReaderRagfihs the music was good. The new characters cool looking. The gameplay wasn't as polished as Killer Instinct and the controls felt clunky. I had fun with it at the time, but rarely revisit it. If you want to play an early 3d fighter its worth it, but Killer Instinct is somehow a better game overall so keep that in mind.

@ReaderRagfihs I played a lot both, KI on SNES and KIG on N64 and both at the arcade (KIG is based on KI2).

KI is more serious and polished but I had more fun with KIG. Both have an amazing soundtrack. The gameplay is a bit like SF but with combos and combo breakers, ultra combos (finishing combos) but well you know this already. You feel good when you pull them out. You should try both because no one knows which one you would prefer, but the SNES version of KI is quite downgraded (not as much as the GB LOL), so I prefer the arcade version on Xbox One. I also prefer the arcade version of KI2 (also on Xbox One) because KIG combines sprites and 3D backgrounds (like Mario Kart 64) but KIG is a pretty decent version anyway and even has extra modes including a training mode.

@JackEatsSparrows Would you recommend Clayfighter? I've known about it for a long time and never once really thought about trying it.

@Illusion Yeah, I always hear that the original is better, but it seems hard for people to put their finger on why. I'll keep it in mind though.

@BlueOcean To be fair, the Gameboy version is a lot of fun. It's definitely downgraded, but they still did a very good job with it. I've even managed to pull of a few ultra combos on it too.

Is the SNES version downgraded in ways other than sound and graphics? It was really fun for the short time I played it, it didn't feel like a watered down port onto inferior hardware.
