N64 is the greatest system ever. Super Mario World, Goldeneye, Mario Kart 64 and, the greatest video game ever, Ocarina of Time.



Have and love all of those but that might have been the worst controller in history.

Completely disagree - it basically introduced the analog stick and ergonomically correct feature now seen on every advanced system.

There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note

The lack of a 2nd analog like ps did almost sabotaged all the great they did though. Good intentions but I hated that controller.

You weren't a true baller unless you had the subscription to Nintendo Power.


The one issue with the map for the entire lay out of Zelda was priceless.

Can't believe they don't have a decent modern console out.

I'm not, it has a lot to do with their corporate strategy for over a decade.  I think it's fair to say Nintendo is the Apple of the video game world.

It stings, but they are still going to make money hand over fist because they clean up the younger kid and casual gamer market that Xbox and Sony gloss over. Kinda genius in a way.
