Subject: The Nintendo 64 Thread

We all deserve this thread!

This video of funny cutscenes in Banjo-Tooie made me want to cry.

Share your N64 moments! I think we can all agree I was the best at Mario Kart 64 right?

I would beat anybody on this site in any Mario Kart game, despite the fact that I haven't played it in a long time. I still remember how to do everything including the drifting boosts and shortcuts. Yoshi Valley is my only kryptonite on MK64.

Despite the fact that I'm not a 90s/early 00s kid, I did actually play some N64 games. Some of my favorites are Super Mario 64, Mario Party 2 and 3, and Perfect Dark.

Boy! Even my friends refuse to play Mario Kart with me! They know I make the game too boring for everyone else because they keep losing  ;D

I challenge any of you scrubs to a match of Super Smash Bros. I'll destroy you all with my Ness, Link, and Star Fox.  8)

When it comes to Nintendo 64 memories it mainly involved me and Rareware games. I had all the Rare games including Banjo Kazooie, Tooie, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Perfect Dark, Donkey Kong 64, Diddy Kong Racing, Killer Instinct Gold, Mickey's Speedway USA, Blast Corps, Jet Force Gemini, and Golden Eye. Between 1999-2003 these were the only games I really played (that is when I wasn't playing my other consoles). I did have a few non-Rare N64 games like Mario 64, Star Fox 64, Bomberman 64, Zelda Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, and Super Smash Bros.

DUDE! You're the only other person I know on the Internet whose played Mickey's Speedway! I loved that game  :D It's actually my favourite racer for the N64 (Mickey's Speedway > Diddy Kong Racing > Mario Kart 64 for me if we're not including battle modes *gets flameshield*). It was super fun!

And I know the EXACT date I bought Super Smash Bros. It was October 9, 1999. I was with my mom at the mall on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend and naturally I was only "browsing" the video games section. It was there, I saw Mario and Pikachu on the same cover of the same game!! I was screaming! I had to have this game! My mom was evil so she told me I bought too many games recently, I should wait till Christmas. I got on my knees and begged and begged! Just this one game! I'll love her forever and ever! She was pretty embarrassed about the whole being on the knees thing so she let me buy it LOL

Needless to say I loved the game.  :D

I played almost every other game you listed too. I'll get to those later in the thread hopefully  ;D

I'm usually the kind of guy who doesn't get games the same year of there release. I didn't get Super Smash Bros until Christmas of 2000 (or an exact date being Dec 25th, 2000). I got the Nintendo 64 in 1999 (before that I was mainly a Playstation 1 guy). From 2000-2002 Smash 64 was one of the only things we'd ever play. But When Super Smas Bros Melee came out that's when we started to put our attention for the Gamecube.  As for Mickey's Speedway USA I loved that game. Probably because I'm a big Disney fan. When it came to N64 racing games my favorite will always be Diddy Kong Racing, buy Speedway USA had given me some really good times.

Majora's Mask did give me a bit of a scare. Heck the overall feel of the game was certainly darker than the previous games. Everything about the game made me feel uneasy. The fact that at the beginning you're turned into a Deku. Some masked stranger is causing havok. You have 3 days to save a town. And many other things such as the issues that some of the characters you mean in the game are having. Like that one girl at the ranch who you'd help fight off those aliens from taking the cows. If you fail then the girl is taken and when she comes back she is acting very strange. Her older sister is very worried and there is nothing you can do. Or like how when you DO stop the aliens you'd later have to help the older sister deliver the Cow milk to town, but on your way these two criminals are trying to attack you at night and destroy all the milk. Or how about that one moment where you help Kafie get his mask back from that theft guy. And if you fail then you and Kafie are trapped in a hideout with the only way out being to go back in time.

And don't get me started on the first time I saw the transformations...

:( :-\\ :\'( ???

What in the world was Nintendo thinking back in 2000?! :o


The game sure did have a darker tone. Although right after that they went back to the more lighthearted tone for Zelda Windwaker.

Best part about the N64 Zelda games is the fact that they were available on the Gamecube as well. The Gamecube had the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time/Master Quest dual pack. And also the Zelda Collecter's Edition which had Zelda 1, Zelda 2, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, and a demo for Windwaker. I got Majora's Mask in late 2001, but I ended up getting it again when I got the Collecter's Edition for the Gamecube in late 2003. Late '90s/early '00s were great for Zelda. There was the original releases of Zelda Oot and MM for the N64 in 1998/2000. The gamecube re-releases I just spoke of. The release of A Link to the Past for the GBA along with Four swords. And also Oracle of Ages and Seasons in 2001 for the GBC. And lets not forget Windwaker.

These are stuff that gave me nightmares throughout my childhood, even as early as 3 years old, and some of these lasted until I was 10! Call me crazy on some of these.

These dreams lasted when I was 3-5 years old. Anytime I would look at leaves on a tree, whether it was during the daylight or night sky, the wind would start blowing hard and the leaves would start falling off and turning into birds, and the birds would always attack me. Even if I was inside of the house looking outside the window on a tree, the leaves would automatically come off, and the birds would break through the glass and attack me over and over again until I couldn't see. It was terrifying when I was that young. Thankfully, I stopped having these dreams by the time I turned 6. I remember being 3-5 always being scared of the wind outside because I thought leaves would turn into birds every time it fell off.

http://media-cdn.tripadvisor.com/media/photo-s/04/96/f7/e0/evil-toilet-was-scolded.jpg
Toilets were the worst. I became potty trained right before I turned 3 years old, however, for some reason any time I went to people's houses. The toilets would always creep me out. I get scared that it's gonna flush me down. In any dream I had throughout my core childhood, I had to turn my face away from a toilet, otherwise, the flushing sound would automatically start coming on and the toilet would come out of the bathroom chasing me. I'd be sprinting for dear life, otherwise, I'd get flushed down and I'd wake up suddenly from the nightmare. The dream or nightmare could be set place at my house, my grandma's house on my mom or dad's side, a friends house, a public bathroom in a store or my school, etc. and the toilets would always attack me if I looked at them. Public bathrooms were the worst because if I was in a dream and I went into those, the door would be locked and I'd be trapped inside of a maze or labyrinth of toilets screaming to the top of my lungs. In real life throughout the time I was 3-9 years old, I'd always have a phobia of public bathrooms at school or stores. Especially closed tight ones in the stall. I would always hold it no matter what and wait until I got home. Whenever I used the bathroom at people's houses, right after I flushed the toilet I'd quickly shut my ears and sprint out of the bathroom. It wasn't until I was 10 when I finally got over toilets.

The golf guy from Kim Possible. His face looked creepy to me, but it didn't last that long. He'd always try to hit golf bombs on me LOL!

http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/bigidea/images/0/03/GrimTickler.png/revision/latest?cb=20141129171445
If there's any Grim Reaper from my childhood who was the scariest, it goes to the Grim Tickler from the Veggietales movie "Esther". Which I would watch regularly throughout 2001 & 2002 when I was 5 & 6. I consider "Esther" as one of the darker tone movies Veggietales has ever made, but this guy appeared two times in the movie. Sending people who are considered as guilty to the Island of Perpetual Tickling, and he'd always scare the crap outta me. I had many nightmares about him for awhile as a result.

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/47/Deathstrike.jpg
I understand people are scratching their heads on this one. This is Lady Deathstrike from X-Men 2 which I saw in the movies with my dad in 2003. However, even before I saw this movie, there was something about Asian women that always frightened me as a very young child (no offense, my mindset was different back then), but when I was introduced to Lady Deathstrike, I ended up having nightmares for a while that she would always kidnap me and abuse me several times with her claws. Once I saw her in my dreams I could not escape, she would outrun me by a landslide and I was doomed for a really fun dream. This is probably the oddest one of all.

Oh snap! I'm not the only one who had that issue as a kid.  :o I could never use public bathrooms due to being freaked out by them. It all began after getting these crazy dreams of getting stuck into toilets or being trapped in bathroom stalls. I grew out of this by the time I entered 3rd grade. I also never liked the way public toilers looked. By this I mean how some of them have that "U-shaped" lid.
http://images.mentalfloss.com/sites/default/files/styles/article_640x430/public/toiletseat.png
Giving me chills by just looking at it.... :(

As a kid these things always freaked me out. If the lid was an "O-shaped" lid then I wouldn't have problems. But when I saw a "U-shaped" lid then I get uncomfortable. As a kid I sure did have some weird fears. Although U-shaped toilets still make me a bit uncomfortable sometimes.  :(

Also why am I talking about toilets in a Nintendo 64 thread?  ???

Gotta make this post seem on-topic......
WAIT WAIT! I just remembered that there are Nintendo 64 games with toilets in them.
http://www.vizzed.com/vizzedboard/retro/user_screenshots/saves14/145367/GoldenEye%20007_Aug31%2019_59_22.jpg
Err.. in Golden Eye this toilet area gave me the most trouble. The final level was easy. And all the enemies in the games are nothing but pushovers. But this toilet area, man........ This area was just on a whole new level of challenging. The level as a whole was easy, but this one area is where things fall a part.

BAM! Now this post is Nintendo 64 related. Man am I so awesome or what? 8)

While we're on the topic, these were some of the scariest things to me as a kid:

http://www.vizzed.com/vizzedboard/retro/user_screenshots/saves14/147259/NINTENDO64--Super%20Mario%2064_Sep27%2011_14_03.png
Back when I first played Super Mario 64, I always imagined Princess Peach's Castle as a cozy, peaceful place where I would happily live.  Because the rest of the place was completely empty, the boo in the hallway to the courtyard always stuck out as an unpleasant surprise to me whenever I was exploring the building.  Since I felt so uncomfortable seeing a ghost while traversing through the place, I always felt reluctant about going in the small brown doors in the main lobby and always preferred taking the basement door to area 2 instead.  And don't even get me started on the courtyard itself - having a whole bunch of ghosts (who hurt you, in this case!) in broad daylight, with no backdrop music except for bird and bug sound effects, totally creeped me out!

http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/christmasspecials/images/f/f4/Abominable.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20120724061149
A lot of people consider this guy an adorable Holiday icon, but I'm sorry, Bumble completely freaked me out as a kid.  If his roar and sharp teeth aren't intimidating enough, the static-face stop-motion animation causes him to come off as a genuinely cold and unsympathetic creature to my eyes, at least before Herman de-tooths him.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2686/4239369940_f6bf020450.jpg
My fear of abominable snowmen continues with this Disney atrocity!  For some reason, I've always found animatronic puppets a lot scarier than CGI monsters.  Apparently I was also petrified by marionettes as a toddler, though I don't explicitly my phobia of them now.

http://i48.tinypic.com/2wh3442.jpg
This was my worst fear of all!  While I was introduced to the idea of burglars quite harmlessly in my Schoolhouse Rock computer game featuring the robber from the beginning of "Electricity! Electricity!," this burglar traumatized me for the rest of my childhood.  For years following my first experience with this, I became terrified about staying up until midnight, and I had so much trouble going to sleep on so many nights that I would constantly beg my parents for reassurance that nobody was going to break in to our house.  Usually, when the burglar appears in the game, all of your Sims are asleep, the lights turned off, and the backdrop sounds of nothing except crickets.  Then, completely out of nowhere, usually during the midnight hour, the build/buy mode icons would turn blue, a window would pop up in the lower-right corner above the dashboard with the caption "Burglar!," and the most ear-piercingly terrifying music would erupt out of your headphones and gut your breath.  Once I knew what to expect, I began turning off my music and covering my eyes whenever all my Sims went to bed until it was past 12:59 AM.

I may have just posted an image of the burglar himself, but the dreaded memory is simply not complete without the overly exclamatory music, so here you go:

All of my Nintendo 64 memories are with Super Mario 64, Mario Kart, Quake 2, Super Smash Bros, Pokémon Stadium, 2, Pokémon Snap, Mario Party 3, this Pac-Man Classic Collection, Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Bad Fur Day in general. I would say Flying Dragon is up there to, even though I just watched my brother and earliest friend play. The game has a very memorable soundtrack.

Hahaha I Just seen this post. Dude, I love you. The toilet is such a iconic nightmare. Its just automatically recognizable. I would rank the washing machine and dryer up there to. Man, both were my biggest fears. I used to hide under the bed as they were progressing our clothes. It used to get serious when shoes were added in with our clothes.

Back on to the topic, at least slightly. I wasn't scared at all of the moon in Majora's Mask. I just wanted it out of my face.

If there's any Grim Reaper from my childhood who was the scariest, it goes to the Grim Tickler from the Veggietales movie "Esther". Which I would watch regularly throughout 2001 & 2002 when I was 5 & 6. I consider "Esther" as one of the darker tone movies Veggietales has ever made, but this guy appeared two times in the movie. Sending people who are considered as guilty to the Island of Perpetual Tickling, and he'd always scare the crap outta me. I had many nightmares about him for awhile as a result.

I understand people are scratching their heads on this one. This is Lady Deathstrike from X-Men 2 which I saw in the movies with my dad in 2003. However, even before I saw this movie, there was something about Asian women that always frightened me as a very young child (no offense, my mindset was different back then), but when I was introduced to Lady Deathstrike, I ended up having nightmares for a while that she would always kidnap me and abuse me several times with her claws. Once I saw her in my dreams I could not escape, she would outrun me by a landslide and I was doomed for a really fun dream. This is probably the oddest one of all.

These are stuff that gave me nightmares throughout my childhood, even as early as 3 years old, and some of these lasted until I was 10! Call me crazy on some of these.

These dreams lasted when I was 3-5 years old. Anytime I would look at leaves on a tree, whether it was during the daylight or night sky, the wind would start blowing hard and the leaves would start falling off and turning into birds, and the birds would always attack me. Even if I was inside of the house looking outside the window on a tree, the leaves would automatically come off, and the birds would break through the glass and attack me over and over again until I couldn't see. It was terrifying when I was that young. Thankfully, I stopped having these dreams by the time I turned 6. I remember being 3-5 always being scared of the wind outside because I thought leaves would turn into birds every time it fell off.

Toilets were the worst. I became potty trained right before I turned 3 years old, however, for some reason any time I went to people's houses. The toilets would always creep me out. I get scared that it's gonna flush me down. In any dream I had throughout my core childhood, I had to turn my face away from a toilet, otherwise, the flushing sound would automatically start coming on and the toilet would come out of the bathroom chasing me. I'd be sprinting for dear life, otherwise, I'd get flushed down and I'd wake up suddenly from the nightmare. The dream or nightmare could be set place at my house, my grandma's house on my mom or dad's side, a friends house, a public bathroom in a store or my school, etc. and the toilets would always attack me if I looked at them. Public bathrooms were the worst because if I was in a dream and I went into those, the door would be locked and I'd be trapped inside of a maze or labyrinth of toilets screaming to the top of my lungs. In real life throughout the time I was 3-9 years old, I'd always have a phobia of public bathrooms at school or stores. Especially closed tight ones in the stall. I would always hold it no matter what and wait until I got home. Whenever I used the bathroom at people's houses, right after I flushed the toilet I'd quickly shut my ears and sprint out of the bathroom. It wasn't until I was 10 when I finally got over toilets.

The golf guy from Kim Possible. His face looked creepy to me, but it didn't last that long. He'd always try to hit golf bombs on me LOL!

LOL dude you were a big fat scaredy cat! Scared of golf dudes, toilets, leaves, and a pink bubblegum monster ;D I'll have to agree with ocarinafan. That Majora's moon and just the whole game in general, now that's scary. ;D


This was my favorite part of Super Mario 64. :) I would replay it over and over again!  :o  For some reason, it completed me and was therapeutic when I was having a bad day.


Darn, I want to try this out! I was a kid so I had no need for anything therapeutic, but it does sound nice just thinking about it. Flying around among clouds and rainbows. :)

The Golf Guy was in a few dreams, but he didn't last that long, looking back, the golf guy was easy for me to escape.

Lady Deathstrike gave me a lot of trouble though, her creepy eyes, that mean face of hers, and her claws. It looked like she was gonna attack you under 5 seconds. If I saw Lady Deathstrike in a dream it was a 0.000000001% chance I could outrun her, otherwise it was really painful. Those nightmares lasted for at least 2 years.

Toilets were probably my worst nightmare throughout my childhood, especially if it was the public bathrooms with a labyrinth of stalls. The toilet dreams could have taken place at my house, grandparents, aunts/uncles, school, store, church, etc. and whenever I looked at it, the flusher automatically came on and it would come to life and start chasing me. It was a 50-50 chance I'd outrun it or it would flush me in alive. Throughout the time I was 3 to 9 years old I could NOT use public or school bathrooms for a long time, only the ones at home and even then I had to shut my ears tight and sprint out every time I flushed the toilet.

Well, not all at the same time. Some of these dreams only lasted when I was 3-5 or 6, while some didn't come until later on when I was 7-9 or 10, however, the toilet ones lasted throughout my WHOLE childhood. Clowns or creepy music never scared me. Keep in mind, I'm going through all of the type of nightmares I had, and some of these I didn't have because I was actually "scared", some of it was a mental thing, or a mind thing. Like the leaves turning into birds due to the wind, I wasn't scared of birds or leaves, it was just in my mind as a toddler that leaves and birds were related to each other. People's thoughts of what's considered as "creepy" vary from person to person in their own imagination. Look at #Infinity's post, that music from Sims or the abominable snowman, in my mind that was a complete joke to me when I was younger. But to her mind, she might be like "how could anyone be afraid of toilets? that's just furniture like any other". So what was considered as scared as a "kid" varies from different people.

While we're on the topic, these were some of the scariest things to me as a kid:

Back when I first played Super Mario 64, I always imagined Princess Peach's Castle as a cozy, peaceful place where I would happily live.  Because the rest of the place was completely empty, the boo in the hallway to the courtyard always stuck out as an unpleasant surprise to me whenever I was exploring the building.  Since I felt so uncomfortable seeing a ghost while traversing through the place, I always felt reluctant about going in the small brown doors in the main lobby and always preferred taking the basement door to area 2 instead.  And don't even get me started on the courtyard itself - having a whole bunch of ghosts (who hurt you, in this case!) in broad daylight, with no backdrop music except for bird and bug sound effects, totally creeped me out!

A lot of people consider this guy an adorable Holiday icon, but I'm sorry, Bumble completely freaked me out as a kid.  If his roar and sharp teeth aren't intimidating enough, the static-face stop-motion animation causes him to come off as a genuinely cold and unsympathetic creature to my eyes, at least before Herman de-tooths him.

My fear of abominable snowmen continues with this Disney atrocity!  For some reason, I've always found animatronic puppets a lot scarier than CGI monsters.  Apparently I was also petrified by marionettes as a toddler, though I don't explicitly my phobia of them now.

This was my worst fear of all!  While I was introduced to the idea of burglars quite harmlessly in my Schoolhouse Rock computer game featuring the robber from the beginning of "Electricity! Electricity!," this burglar traumatized me for the rest of my childhood.  For years following my first experience with this, I became terrified about staying up until midnight, and I had so much trouble going to sleep on so many nights that I would constantly beg my parents for reassurance that nobody was going to break in to our house.  Usually, when the burglar appears in the game, all of your Sims are asleep, the lights turned off, and the backdrop sounds of nothing except crickets.  Then, completely out of nowhere, usually during the midnight hour, the build/buy mode icons would turn blue, a window would pop up in the lower-right corner above the dashboard with the caption "Burglar!," and the most ear-piercingly terrifying music would erupt out of your headphones and gut your breath.  Once I knew what to expect, I began turning off my music and covering my eyes whenever all my Sims went to bed until it was past 12:59 AM.

I may have just posted an image of the burglar himself, but the dreaded memory is simply not complete without the overly exclamatory music, so here you go:



LOL omg that Boo scared me too! That whole haunted hosue level is just scary especially the giant Boos in there. That giant eel in the cave in the early swimming level is also complete nightmare fuel.

http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20131102204530/spinpasta/images/1/10/Mario64.jpg

When I was a kid I thought yetis were actual real animals (as well as the Sasquatch). I blame Zoo Tycoon but also my parents for feeding into it >_< And my teacher in 3rd Grade also showed us a documentary about Big Foot. I wasn't scared of it though, I wanted to be the one to discover Big Foot!

What scared me about The Sims more than the burglar is definitely the ghosts! Especially that house with a billion tombstones in their backyard. Just why! why! why! (as we ask ourselves in every horror movie).

YES!!! I loved playing this game at people's houses when I was little. The best and most original console Mario Kart game of the whole series. I don't care how much it has aged. The toughest course for me was Yoshi Valley without a doubt, not even Rainbow Road or Bowser's Castle was as tough as that one for me. Toad's Turnpike on mirror mode could be a pain as well. My favorite music was the Frappe Snowland/Sherbert Land courses. Royal Raceway was my favorite, because of the jumps and driving around the castle was fun, it looked like Super Mario 64 territory. Favorite character to drive with was Toad. The music on the character/course selection menu had that class vibe to it.

The first game to give me consistent nightmares is easily The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which was also one of the first games I bought for the system.

Okay, we aren't even at the scariest part yet. Remember that house in Kakariko Village next to that cuckoo farm where all the cuckoo's would attack you if you hit them enough times? It was next to that graveyard, but the graveyard isn't half as scary as

WHAT THE F*CK?!?!

Okay, okay, it's not even the worst part yet. Rememeber when you'd go at Hyrule Castle at night or in the Water Temple and you came across the ReDead? They weren't scary themselves but when they screamed at you I'd take a room of spiders any day of the week.

LOL, that's one of the biggest misconceptions and false assumptions everybody gets when they ask me why I was afraid of toilets throughout my childhood. No, go back to my original post before that one. My fear of toilets when I was younger had nothing to do with germs. When I was younger the inside of a toilet looked like the mouth of a monster or alien. The sound of the flush was terrifying to me and it felt like the toilet was gonna chase me or flush me down. When I was younger I could only use the toilets at home because you could close the lid, which prevented me from thinking the toilet was gonna flush me down, public bathrooms on the other hand didn't have lids, it only goes to the U shaped lid that's still open. Plus public bathrooms were worse for me because the stalls looked like a labyrinth or maze of multiple toilets which was even more terrifying than just one to deal with at home.

OMG, OMG!  Just seeing a screen capture from Donkey Kong 64 is enough to galvanize my nostalgia hormones into overdrive! <3 <3 <3

I will NEVER forgive Microsoft for stealing Rare from Nintendo and ruining the Donkey Kong franchise for life, aside maybe from the DKCR series.  Donkey Kong 64 was such an epic platformer, it traumatized me there was never a sequel to it on the GameCube. :\'(

My favourite was Lankey Kong. He inspired me to learn the handstand  ;D

Unfortunately I never got to finish the game. I got stuck on the eighth key, I believe it was behind some cage. It still haunts me to this day  :'(

Remember that cheesey TV show that aired around the same time? I didn't think it was that bad.

Donkey Kong 64 is one of my love/hate games. I love it due to it being a fun 3D platformer, but I can't stand the amount of collectables in the game. 1 big scavenger hunt. It's basically what happens if you get Banjo Tooie and multiply it by 5. Banjo Tooie is a big game, but Donkey Kong 64 is overkill. Funny enough the game is my 4th favorite DK game. Behind Donkey Kong Country 1,2, and Diddy Kong Racing.

That's true, I can see why it might be grating to someone with limited time. But as a kid who had all the time in the world, the platforming action that came with the collect-a-thon elements of the game actually enhanced it for me. I love how the game plays differently depending on which character you're using.

Yeah, I think Melee will forever be seen as the best Smash bros game. Melee is 7 years older than Brawl, but somehow Melee has outlived Brawl's popularity. Smash Bros 4 is alright though. But I still prefer Melee. Screw the 3DS version though.  >:(

Opinions opinions....

Brawl wasn't a bad game though, I liked the story mode and the custom options, it was the 1st to have wi-fi too, but I agree that gameplay wise Melee was a lot better for its prime. Don't know about Wii U or 3DS though.

Yeah I've played this at friends and cousins houses as well. Personally for me it was my favorite Smash for most of my childhood. It wasn't until I discovered Melee on Thanksgiving 2005 at one of my cousins house that I was blown away and fell in love with the beloved classic, taking over my love for Smash64. Like a few people above me said, after playing Melee it made Smash64 obsolete and extremely dated!

Fun Fact: Melee was one of the reasons why I got a Gamecube on Christmas 2005 8)

And I agree. Aside from the Konga series, it's shame that there no DK main game for GC and for 11 years (Thanks to Microsoft for buying Rare). It took a long time for a new one to be released. That would have been amazing though.

I don't know if you or others have noticed, but there was no Metroid game for the N64 either. There was an 8 year gap between Super Metroid for SNES and Metroid Prime for GC (aside from the Fusion game for GBA).

Yep and so did Ness as there hasn't any new Earthbound games since the SNES days. It's weird how some Nintendo characters don't have many games as others. A few of them basically had one or two main games while appearing in Nintendo collection releases the most.

Back when I first played Super Mario 64, I always imagined Princess Peach's Castle as a cozy, peaceful place where I would happily live.  Because the rest of the place was completely empty, the boo in the hallway to the courtyard always stuck out as an unpleasant surprise to me whenever I was exploring the building.  Since I felt so uncomfortable seeing a ghost while traversing through the place, I always felt reluctant about going in the small brown doors in the main lobby and always preferred taking the basement door to area 2 instead.  And don't even get me started on the courtyard itself - having a whole bunch of ghosts (who hurt you, in this case!) in broad daylight, with no backdrop music except for bird and bug sound effects, totally creeped me out!

Yep, all the gens had an oversaturation. Ever since Mario got popular a lot of NES games were made in the 3rd gen. Ever since Sonic's debut in the 4th gen a lot of games were platformers that tried to have these "cool" yet "cute" characters. Same for RPGs being everywhere. Now the 4th - 6th gens are still my favorite though.

Even though this is off topic, but it's still related to Nintendo since I'm talking about Mario here, but would any of you consider this as the hardest Mario game of all time. It was originally Super Mario Bros. 2 in Japan, but it's retitled as Super Mario: The Lost Levels. or Super Mario Bros. for Super Players. Whether you play(ed) this on the NES, Famicom, Gameboy Advance, or Virtual Console, it's basically a harder version of the original Super Mario Bros. and World 1 levels can already be as hard as World 8 on the original one, and it only gets tougher from there. Power ups are put in harder positions, poison mushrooms are added to the game, invisible blocks are put in trap areas, a lot more pit holes, you have to make tough jumps at the perfect timing, enemies are more aggressive, stages and castles are harder, etc. The game is so frustrating.

It sure isn't easy learning how to master Beaver Bother, beating the Donkey Kong Arcade twice with only one life, or outracing that dreaded, stutter-squealing beetle in Crystal Caverns.  But once you do finally get everything in the game and get to watch the two bonus cutscenes at the end, the sense of accomplishment is monumental.  It really is largely the size and challenge of Donkey Kong 64 that makes me appreciate it so much.

Yeah it's your signature lol because it's going to be real fun over the next several months having to see it in every single post you make now. I agree that the very late 2000's and early 2010's mainstream pop culture was better than the core 2000's, however, when it comes to the core 2010's I think it's debatable though because are you talking about the pop culture of TV shows, movies, games, fashion, or are you talking about the political and lifestyle, or even social media too. You gotta look at the whole picture, but I respect your opinion though. I think the mainstream TV shows, music and movies of this decade are better than the last one (if you're comparing to the core 2000's), but not the political and lifestyle though. Gaming was definitely a lot better in the 2000's without a question. When it comes to the fashion it depends on which culture you follow, whether it's urban, hipster, country, emo, etc. The kid culture is completely irrelevant to this conversation, because people all ages were in their core childhoods at different times and will have different opinions on it.

You should take it up with Jordan, I don't make da factz I only report them. ;)

I will take it off if it's bothering you though. It was just a joke lol. I have sigs/avatars turned off personally, too much clutter.  :o

I loved this game so much! It's one of my favourite platformers! The game was kind of short (10 hours-ish) but the level design and gameplay make it an instant classic.

One thing I really miss about the N64 era is all the "urban legends" that you saw in gaming back then. The internet of today has pretty much killed this off, but back in those days it was still primitive enough that you couldn't just look up anything about a game with the touch of a button.

Who here spent an inordinate amount of time in the late '90s trying to find Luigi in Super Mario 64?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhCUmgs9BJg

Or, how about that stupid rumor in Ocarina of Time that if you killed 100 Stalchild's in Hyrule Field that a portal to a hidden "Sky Temple" would open up, allowing you to actually obtain the Triforce as an item? I must've spent 50 hours on OoT just killing those damn Stalchild things for no reason. ;D

I totally believed that Luigi one! ;D It's actually because of the Internet that I believed in it. I remember my friend showed me a picture of Luigi in the game online. If it's on the Internet it's gotta to be true right?!

There was another one about getting Mew in Pokemon Red. I can't remember what the exact myth was, but it did result in a lot of lost hours.  :(

That would be the infamous truck parked on the dock next to the SS Anne in Vermilion City.

http://www.andypmcdonald.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/pokemontruck.jpg

My GOD that truck! You couldn't reach it because you didn't know Surf at the time you reached Vermilion City, and if you came back later, the SS Anne was gone and you were blocked from going back to the docks. Every single kid in the late '90s was convinced that Mew was located behind that truck but, when you finally manage to get back there using a series of complicated tricks and glitches, it turns out that there's nothing back there at all! Still to this day no one knows why that truck was put in Pokemon Red/Blue, as it's the only vehicle seen in the entire game.

Funnily enough, you actually can catch Mew in Red/Blue, but it's through using an entirely different glitch that doesn't involve the truck at all.

God, I miss those. I completely forgot I ever heard of one. I heard the Smash 64 myth that Raichu was going to be playable, but it wasn't popular. I like how mysterious they made the specific game.

I remember the Raichu one, too. Actually SSB 64 probably had more urban legends and rumors around it than just about any other game in that era. I remember hearing stuff about Charizard being playable, as well as Sonic the Hedgehog, Metal Mario, and Master Hand among others.

A classic. Remember the first scene where jumps off the bridge and you're like "why the f*ck did he just jump off a bridge?!" but apparently he was tied to a rope, the graphics just weren't good enough to draw it ;D

This game was so much fun in multiplayer. I love the sound when someone dies LOL

Yeah, the first time that I played Goldeneye 64 mystified me. I was wondering why James Bond jumped off a bridge at the end of the first mission, and thought it was a Game Over. However, once I found out it was a Mission Pass scene, then I was okay with it.

I sure do! Yeah, for some reason, I didn't see it and then the next level, he was in a vent. ;D

I agree and Me too! It was like the signature kill sound in all multiplayer matches. ;D ;D
