Which either Mario 64 game or remake do you prefer? I would go for the original. I didn't really like the remake on the DS. Broken controls on the remake. But in my opinion, the original is superior. :)

Best thread ever.

Mario 64 was briliant when it came out, and nothing beats what we all felt playing Mario in 3D for the first time. Nothing comes close to the level of perfection this game reached at that time, in regards to its generation. Plus, the N64 controller was freaking briliant for it! (Being a little kid, I didn't appreciate how perfect that controller was until much later.)

However, strictly as a game, I believe the DS version is better. It's got all the levels of the original, PLUS more playable charaters with diffferent gameplay styles AND more stages. The controls aren't perfect, but that's just because it's on the DS; they are as good as can be in that medium.

Now, if the same version was on both, I'd take the N64 one no doubt.

As the DS version is really just the original with lots of bonuses, of course I like the DS version. And I don't get why everyone hates the controls; the thumb pad works excellent.

I don't think the controls on the DS version are bad at all. I like the DS version more, especially for the multiplayer.

Just let it happen.

I like the DS version way better because it has better graphics (at least on DS screen) and some nice additions
also it is portable so I can play it anywhere I want
I have never had a problem with its controls

I love the DS version, although it'd be better with analog sticks.

Well on the 64 it controls perfectly, and ends up being pure platforming bliss.

The DS has some nice extra stuff, but since it doesn't control particularily great, it isn't as blissful to play.

I played both, and I thought both were great. Although I really should either download the VC version (64) or purchase the remake (DS). Although, since I've more fondness for the 64 version, I'd have to say the 64 version.

I played Super Mario 64 at either a friend's or a cousin's house.

The original, only because of joystick support.

The original all the way. I just didn't like some of the stuff they changed and/or added in the remake. Though, I was never really bothered by the controls.

The original, if only because it can't possibly be as bad as it is on the DS.

I should download the original version sometime. The DS edition is fun but it plays like crap.
