The Nintendo 64 is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and it’s getting a lot of love from Nintendo, with their Nintendo Switch Online expanding to include classic N64 games like Super Mario 64, Starfox 64 and the Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. So with all the N64 love in the air, we’re looking back for that quick hit of nostalgia to decide the bestgames on the N64.
In this video, we go over the bestgames that the Nintendo 64 had to offer over its entire lifetime. From the weirdness of Grunty’s Lair in Banjo-Kazooie to the space adventure of Starfox 64, the 64 era was filled with classic worlds to discover and explore. Not only that, but with games like Super Mario 64, the N64 helped to define what 3D gaming could become. Even more, games like Mario Kart 64 set the template for long-running series that have dominated entire genres.
For this ranking, we look at everything from the multiplayer madness of Goldeneye 007 to the dark themes of Majora’s Mask to the horrors of Resident Evil 2… and it’s graphics. Even further, we highlight some underappreciated gems like Conker’s Bad Fur Day… though we hope you’ll forgive if we forget to talk about Superman 64.
If you want to see how you can replay some of these nostalgic games, check out the news about N64 games, as well as some Sega Genesis classics, will be coming to Nintendo Switch Online later this year here!
