Retro Video Games and Consoles
Megalong Games > Nintendo 64
Nintendo 64 or simply N64 is a video game console from Nintendo released on June 23, 1996 in Japan and September 29, 1996 in North America. Touted as the first true 64-bit gaming system, the Nintendo 64 was released with only two launch games: Super Mario 64 and PilotWings 64.
While not being home to as many highly rated games as Nintendo's earlier Super Famicom (Japan) and SNES (North America and Europe) and lacking the essential third party support (which would eventually be its downfall), it still has seen some particularly notable games. Games such as GoldenEye, Super Mario 64, and Ocarina of Time are still considered by some gamers to be among the greatest games of all time.
Apart from Nintendo's own in-house development, Rareware (now second-party to Microsoft's gaming division) has also produced a steady stream of popular titles for Nintendo 64. From their first N64 title, Blast Corps., through GoldenEye, Banjo-Tooie, Perfect Dark, Jet Force Gemini, Donkey Kong 64 to the more recent Conker's Bad Fur Day.
