The top 10 Nintendo 64 games — I got N and had a blast

The Nintendo 64 was an amazing machine.

Too bad it happened to come out at the same time as the PlayStation, because that console and Final Fantasy VII stole a lot of Nintendo’s thunder.

That is because the N64 was really wickedly different from everything the Big N had done previously.

With a huge emphasis on 3D graphics and an attempt at porting the company’s classics to this new format, the N64 literally pioneered certain types of gaming on consoles that we take for granted today.

Two of them to mention briefly as 3D platforming and multiplayer first-person shooters.

As you can probably already tell, making a list of the “best-of” for this system is challenging, because there are games that are pioneering but not the best out there and then there are games that are absolutely amazing but could have appeared elsewhere.

Nonetheless, I have tried to cobble together something that I think fairly represents the N64 library. Here are the top 10 Nintendo 64 games of all time.

Oh, as usual it is one game per series, so do not scream when you can’t see the likes of Majora’s Mask and Banjo-Tooie… ;-)
