20. Star Wars: Rogue Squadron
The Star Wars franchise got quite a lot of representation on Nintendo's third platform, and the undisputed best title of the bunch has got to be Star Wars: Rogue Squadron. This spacecraft-navigating shooter was an absolute blast back in the day and surprisingly holds up significantly well even now. The very fact that this game was the predecessor to one of the most remarkable launch titles on the GameCube is reason alone to give it a nod.
19. Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber
Strategy role-playing games are few and far between on the Nintendo 64, so when Ogre Battle 64 launched, fans of the franchise had plenty of reason to rejoice. Not only does this Quest-developed RTS feature a deep and complex plot with multiple endings, it requires careful thought and mastery to succeed in each battle. This is strategy done right.
18. Pokémon Snap
Pokémon Snap is one of those special games that lives on in the memory of so many N64 owners who have an affinity toward Nintendo's monster-collecting franchise. While the game itself is relatively simple, tasking the player with snapping pictures of the cute little creatures, it also served as the first time gamers got to see the world Pokémon in three dimensions. That little fact simply can't be understated.
17. Mario Golf
If you owned a Nintendo 64 and ever found yourself looking to kick back and kill some time with your pals, there weren't many better options than Mario Golf. This low-key, relaxing game was a great way to unwind and just chill with your best bros. With a number of different characters from the Mario universe to choose from and a plethora of interesting courses to play on, this became one of the N64's go-to games for multiplayer fun.
16. Harvest Moon 64
Who would have ever thought that a farm sim could be so much fun? Harvest Moon 64 hit the right balance of work and reward, creating an addicting feedback loop that would have players constantly coming back for more. With an insanely charming art style and so many different things to do, Harvest Moon on the 64 made working with crops and livestock so much fun. If only maintaining a farm were really this much fun!
