Maybe the makes of it will come out with it as a game you just plug into the tv and play..That would be sweet. I have the bug to play this again. I forgot about those guys...Piston Honda, Super Macho Man...those bring back the memories..

I don't remember getting stars on the Sandman either...Think it just took awhile to knock him out, but it's been so long since I have played it!

OMG! I love Mike Tyson's punch out. I used to play it all the time when I was in elementary school. I remember when I broke my wrist in 5th grade, I learned to play the game one handed with the controller on the ground. It took forever but I finally got good and beat the game with one hand :-b

LOL, I knew a kid that had a crippled hand from birth, but that son of a gun could play some nintendo with one hand! What's more amazing is that he would actually turn the control upside down, and he would play with one hand.

One time we had a Street Fighter tournament and he beat two seasoned video game players before getting eliminated. IT was pretty incredible. Anyway, not that anyone cares....

Wow, this is my new favorite thread. Seeing pictures of the games brings back great memories.

I must've scrolled through this thread 3 times just looking at the games... *sigh*

Zelda was definately my favorite. I used to spend so much time playing it. It was a very entertaining game. I also was obsessed with goldeneye, of course 2 of the top games ever for n64 ;-)

Yeah, pretty much THE top 2 games for N64. N64 doesn't have many good games, but those two are definitely the best for that console. Nothing else even comes close really.

Eck. I agree, it was ground breaking when it came out, but my wife made me play it with her a few weeks ago from start to finish and i was so frustrated by teh time i finally beat that stupid game. The controls are pretty terrible, but considering it was one of the first true 3D games ever made, I suppose it's acceptable.

One other games I forgot that's really good for N64 was Worms: Armageddon

I could never play Super Mario in 3D after the great years in 2D. Same with some crappy Sonic game I tried on a next-gen system.

Sonic Adventure? I thought that game was pretty good... except when you had to play as a couple characters... like that one cat who had to go fishing. I couldn't stand that.

Unless you're talking about Sonic Jam on the Saturn - although that was only 3D in the non-game areas... hoo, Sonic Jam was awesome... had all the really good Sonic games on one disc...

I remember really liking Mario 64 - I haven't played it recently to see if it still holds up, though. The old Mario NES and SNES games will always be the best. ;-D
