GameRevolution's Top 25 Nintendo 64 Games Of All Time (Full List)
Posted on Friday, August 2 @ 15:13:00 Eastern by Alex_OsbornThe Nintendo 64 is easily one of my favorite platforms. While it didn't have the insanely massive library of Sony's platform, quality trumps quantity every day of the week. It featured a wacky three-pronged controller, an attachable rumble pack, and the first opportunity to experience Nintendo franchises in 3D. To pay tribute to this iconic 64-bit platform, we here at GameRevolution put together a list compiling the greatest games the console had to offer. So enough dilly-dallying, let's get started!
25. F-Zero X
If you're looking for a crazy racer, there are few better places to look than the Nintendo 64, as you'll soon find out. F-Zero X is one such game, delivering a super-fast racing experience unlike anything else available at the time. The jump to 3D took the sense of speed and intensity of F-Zero to new heights, making this game one of the most memorable and personality-filled racers of its day. If you enjoy a good challenge and have a need for speed, Captain Falcon has you covered.
24. Turok 2: Seeds of Evil
Who doesn't love to shoot dinosaurs? Turok 2: Seeds of Evil satisfied every kids' wish by giving them the ability to mow down reptilian monsters in a first-person shooter. The franchise really hit its stride with the sequel, delivering a tense and enthralling single-player campaign, as well as a multiplayer mode that featured up to four players. With a number of different characters to choose from and several different modes, the MP of Turok 2 offered some of the best friend-filled action of its day.
23. Star Wars: Episode I Racer
Fans of Star Wars who owned a Nintendo 64 should be all-too familiar with Star Wars: Episode I Racer, a pod racing game that did the sci-fi universe of George Lucas justice. While the movie proved to be a major disappointment to most, quite the opposite was true of this N64 racer. With various pods to choose from and the ability to zip around at super-fast speeds, one can't find much fault in this awesome piece of fan service.
22. Mario Party
While the Mario Party franchise may make your stomach turn today, back on the Nintendo 64 it was still a fresh and unique series, one that resulted in many worn out N64 controllers. There's nothing quite like the original, and the slew of memorable mini-games scratched that light-hearted gaming itch we all have. Who would have thought a virtual board game filled with Mario-centric mini games could be so incredible?
21. Blast Corps
Before Microsoft bought Rare, the studio created a number of incredible title, many of which launched on the Nintendo 64. One absolutely worth mentioning is Blast Corps, a demolition game that tasked players with blowing up a slew of buildings. Seriously, who doesn't like to blow things up? This game is centered around that very premise, so it should come as no surprise to you that GR has selected this as one of the platform's must haves. It's pure fun. After all, that's what gaming is all about, right?
