Favorite N64 game?

Surprised this thread doesn't exist already. Oh well.

There's so many to list, so you'll have to forgive me if your favorite lands in the "Other" category. I'll list the ones I know many people like, and put "Other" to be safe.
My favorite is Paper Mario. The music is phenomenal in that game, the partners all have unique abilities and moves, like Sushi's squirt or Kooper's Fire Shell. The boss fights are epic and have great music to back them up. There's fun sidequests like collecting all the badges, super blocks and star pieces.
Enough about me. What's your favorite?

Edit: Wow, I knew I forgot one. Sorry, Super Mario 64, you're going in the Other option.

Re: Favorite N64 game?

I noticed you said favorite game and not games (plural), yet I sense people will ignore that and post multiple games anyways. -_-


There are a handful of great 64 games which I adore, but the one that stands on the very top of the pile is:



For me, Super Mario 64 is what gaming is all about. I still enjoy the ♥♥♥♥ out of it to this day!

Oh yeah, and shame on you for not including Super Mario 64 in the poll, but jumping over it for Mario Party and Mario Kart. :/

Better on Playstation. It had actual cutscenes instead of voice-acted slideshows.

I agree 100%, but I had a N64 growing up and didn't play the PS1 version till years later. The N64 version though was still an amazing game.

Re: Favorite N64 game?

Majora's Mask is my favorite, because I loved everything it had to offer.

Other great games:

Diddy Kong Racing - The characters and racing is better than Mario Kart 64.

Mario Kart 64 - The stages and items are better than Diddy Kong Racing.

Super Mario 64 - Great game, but hasn't really aged that well compared to the DS remake.

Banjo Kazooie - Great game, but really cruddy swimming controls and Clanker's freaking Cavern.

Pokemon Snap - Great on-rails photography simulator that gets too much hate.

Mario Tennis - Excellent tennis game.

Kirby 64 - Great Kirby game.

Ocarina of Time - Great for its time, but I feel every console Zelda game after it is better.

Voice acting on the PS1 is nothing to brag about.

Other than Diddy Kong Racing, you've listed all of my favorite N64 games. How am I supposed to choose?

Just pick the one that you would most like to play right now. Or on a desert island. I don't know, just pick one!

They both had voice acting. N64 one just cut replaced the visual component of cutscenes with slideshows. So you got a series of still panels that were still voice acted and, if memory serves, the N64 version even kept the sound effects. Literally the only difference is slides vs video.

Anyways, my favorite N64 game is OoT. I loved that game to death. It got me hooked onto Zelda, and I bought a Gamecube instead of a PS2 just so I could play the next Zelda game, TWW. It's a great game, and I don't think I need to explain why.

I fail to see how using slides makes it worse than the PS1 version.

Re: Favorite N64 game?

Because it was stupid and ugly. And lazy; they could have at least drawn comic book style panels with greater detail or motion effects or something but they took stills from the cutscenes.
