@RedderRugfish @BlueOcean Just got it

Untitled

Unfortunately I do not own any games and I cant test it. The light turns red and that is it I read that I need a cartridge in the console to have a video

My Castlevania 64 will arrive in the following week or two.

I will use it ONLY for a selected 5-10 games but it is so exciting to own it nevertheless!
My first N64!

@Zuljaras Congratulations! It seems to be in very good condition. Now you can play any PAL cartridge, the first one Castlevania 64.

@Zuljaras Looks to be in pretty good condition. Don't know how much you're willing to spend on games and such, and if you're a fan of original games or not, but you could also invest in an Everdrive cartridge, which uses an SD card to load games into the N64's memory, and then plays them like they're on a cartridge.

But, if you only want to play original games, then I'd say that just about any (if not all) games made by Rare are a safe bet for getting good games, and far as I'm concerned, the following games are also all pretty good:

  • Legend of Zelda - The Ocarina of Time
  • Super Mario 64
  • Mario Kart 64
  • Mario Tennis
  • Mario Golf
  • Paper Mario
  • Yoshi's Story
  • F-Zero X
  • Star Fox
  • Wave Race 64
  • 1080 Snowboarding
  • Pilotwings 64
  • Hydro Thunder
  • Iggy's Reckin' Balls
  • Mischief Makers
  • Pokemon Stadium
  • Pokemon Stadium 2
  • Pokemon Puzzle League
  • Ridge Racer 64
  • Top Gear Rally 2
  • World Driver Championship
  • Wipeout 64
  • Hybrid Heaven
  • Beetle Adventure Racing
  • San Francisco Rush 2049
  • Snowboard Kids

Let me add the bomberman and goemon games to that list.

...speaking of which has anybody seen a legit copy of Bomerman 64: second attack in the wild? It is the only game in the N64 series that I am missing.

@Ryu_Niiyama You could always give LukieGames a try. They usually have quite a few titles in stock, and if not, you can always get notified if they do, or you could give them a call/send them an e-mail.

Of late, I'm advertising this site quite a bit here and there, but that's also because besides Amazon, it's the only American site that I've actually made use of and am content with, so I've no issues with recommending them to someone else.

EDIT:
Whoops... just checked the price for that particular Bomberman game... Wow... Must be quite a rare game, from the looks of that price tag.
But it's not even in stock, so there goes that option. Back to eBay with you, then...

@RedderRugfish aww that sucks. Yeah Aside from blockbuster as a child I've never seen that one. I comb retro stores constantly to no avail. It is the last of the games I want for my N64 collection.

Look, I tell you what. Would it be really nice if we let Nintendo decide to release an N64 Classic Mini this year or next year?

I wonder if there's gonna be 30 games on N64 mini?

I wonder all the time

Speaking of Bomberman 64: The Second Attack, there was a pretty good run of it at SGDQ recently. I didn't realize the game was so rare before the run, although I've certainly never played it. I rented B64 back in the day though.

Anyone played Bomberman Hero? I took a crack at it some years back and found it pretty enjoyable, although I didn't get too far and I've since heard loathing for it in the community.

Now, how about if Nintendo could release an N64 Classic Edition with 30 games this year for Christmas? I bet if it's up to Nintendo then that would be great. Maybe it would be released in September, October, November, December, or early 2020. But we will see about it, won't we? Because we are all retro gaming fans wanting to have this mini N64 console so that we can play games from our childhood again and again.

SGDQ? I enjoyed Hero, but prefer bomberman 64 and second attack... (If i can find it and not pay a kidney).

@Ryu_Niiyama Summer Games Done Quick, the charity speedrun marathon. You can find the old streams on twitch and reuploads on Youtube, if you're so inclined. They had a lot of really entertaining runs this year, of which B642 was one.

@RedderRugfish, ah, yeah that explains it! I didn't even clock the lack of multiplayer since I only touched it briefly. The main thing that registered for me was that you could actually jump (in a Bomberman game! What a concept!).
