RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014)

RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

GameRevolution's Top 25 Nintendo 64 Games Of All Time (Full List)

Posted on Friday, August 2 @ 15:13:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

10. Mario Kart 64

Hailed by many as the greatest kart racer of all time, Mario Kart 64 is an absolute must have for any Nintendo 64 owner. Zipping around any one of the many different (and incredibly diverse) tracks always made for a good time with friends, and still does today. The game also boasts many other improvements over its predecessor, especially the host of new items to take down your opponents with. Sure, the blue shell caused a lot of controversy back in the day, but you've gotta take the good with the bad, right?



9. Star Fox 64

"Do a barrel roll!" That phrase is reason alone to earn Star Fox 64 a spot in the top ten. This fantastic space shooter featured an unforgettable cast (for better or worse) as well as rumble support, which was a huge deal at the time. Remember that hefty add-on you had to snap into the back of your controller? The game also featured multiplayer battles, which were an absolute blast if you had three other buddies next to you on the couch.



8. Banjo Kazooie

Collect-a-thon platformers were quite plentiful on the Nintendo 64, but none had the same level of undeniable charm as Banjo Kazooie. This bear and bird duo were totally adorable, so long as you could look past all of the squawking. With so much to hunt for and collect, this Rare-developed platformer provided hours upon hours of addicting entertainment. There's a reason why Nintendo fans had a total fit when Rare parted ways with Nintendo and the loss of Banjo is one of them.



7. Goldeneye 007

Now I know what you're thinking... WTF GR?! Why isn't this game higher on the list? While Goldeneye 007 is easily one of the most memorable and influential titles on the N64, it was outclassed by another FPS we'll get to later. That said, Goldeneye was an absolute masterpiece back when it first launched. Up until that time, the first-person shooter genre didn't really work on console, but Rare somehow pulled it off with the help of James Bond. Multiplayer battles were an absolute blast, and dominated a lot of my childhood.



6. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

While The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask has proven to be one of the most polarizing Zelda games ever to hit store shelves, it is also one of the most creative and interesting entries in the series. The time mechanic totally changed the way you needed to approach the adventure, and served as a refreshing twist in the wake of Ocarina of Time. The dark and ominous tone, coupled with the insanely creative mask mechanic makes Majora's Mask one of the most memorable experiences available on the platform.
