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

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



5. Conker's Bad Fur Day


Who know a foul-mouthed squirrel could be so endearing? Rare's decision to take a very (im)mature approach to the 3D platforming genre was one of the most brilliant decisions the studio ever made. The wonderful balance between ridiculous violence, humor, and charm, make Conker's Bad Fur Day one of the best N64 games of all time. With various levels inspired by popular films and events, the game is loaded with relatable and super creative content.



4. Perfect Dark

While Goldeneye came first and perhaps made the bigger impact, Rare's second stab at the FPS genre on the N64 proved to be the superior experience. With a slew of creative guns, impressive visuals, and more of that awesome couch-based competitive multiplayer, it's all too easy to lose yourself in Perfect Dark. I also loved how the game classified your play style at the end of each MP match. I always managed to earn the reckless award.



3. Super Smash Bros.


I don't even want to know how many hours of my life I spent playing the original Super Smash Bros. This mash-up brawler, filled with a bunch of iconic characters, was an absolute blast to play with three other pals. With a slew of different items, a vast array of different themed stages, and chaos galore, this is easily the best multiplayer experience you'll find on the N64. I don't know about you, but after I graduated from Kirby, Pikachu became my character of choice. That thunderbolt attack was incredible.



2. Super Mario 64


There aren't many games quite as genre-defining as Super Mario 64. During a time when 2D platformers ruled the market, Nintendo took a bold step forward into three dimensions with Mario, and pulled it off. The final product has gone on to become one of the greatest platforming experiences you'll ever find, and will be remembered as the Nintendo 64's most influential game, right behind…



1. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is my favorite game of all time. There, I said it. I know it's a popular one to throw around, but deal with it. There's a reason why it has become such an iconic piece of gaming software, and much of it has to do with the mind-blowing experience that was entering Hyrule field for the first time. Ocarina of Time served as a major step forward for 3D adventure games, raising the bar for the genre for years to come. With a plethora of memorable and expertly-crafted dungeons, along with a charming story and gorgeous visual style, the first Zelda title on the N64 is easily one of the greatest gaming experiences you will ever have. Period.

There you have it. Did we miss any of your favorites? Sound off with your N64 faves in the comments below.
