You had to have it to get the most out of games like Perfect Dark and Donkey Kong 64 and Turok 2, among others. 
 
So thought I'd pose the question. Did you ever buy one? And if so, do you still have it today? I do. :)

I believe that since I never owned an N64, I might have poisened that poll with my "No" vote -_-
#4 Edited by mylifeforAiur (3481 posts) -

I have one ;)

#5 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8698 posts) -

Yep, got one with DK64 or Perfect Dark, one of those.

#6 Posted by Gamer_152 (14049 posts) -

I didn't have an N64 so no.

For Perfect Dark.

#8 Posted by yoshimitz707 (2450 posts) -

it didn't give you the most out of the games it wouldn't let you play them if you didn't have it.

Mine's still in my N64. I had to go to an shady import store to buy a Japanese one so I could play Zelda: Majora's Mask as no other store in my town centre had one on sale.

#10 Posted by Nerdjutsu (33 posts) -

I was so excited when I got mine, I thought it would make my N64 twice as better like an N128, but then I realized it only made it an N68.

Why would you vote if the poll has nothing to do with you?
#12 Posted by SuperfluousMoniker (2906 posts) -

Yeah, needed one for Perfect Dark. I remember when I bought the game I was going to get the expansion but the store didn't have any, so I had to run all over the place looking for someplace carrying the damn things. I don't think stores really knew what it was and that 90% of the people buying this new game are going to want it etc because several places were out of stock. I may have just been unlucky though.

#13 Posted by Druminator (1676 posts) -
Yes, mine is still in there too.
#14 Posted by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

yes

#15 Posted by MysteriousBob (6272 posts) -

No, because I never owned an N64. Or any Nintendo console for that matter. I'm not even sure what one is.

I don't recall the poll specifying.
#16 Posted by EVHKwick (452 posts) -

I bought one. I think it was for Turok. 
 
In hindsight, it was a bad decision.

#17 Posted by Geno (6477 posts) -

Yup, 30 bucks for an extra 4 megabytes of memory that was relevant for 1, maybe 2 games. 

#18 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

yes, i had one that came with donkey kong 64. it was epic.

#19 Posted by 71Ranchero (2668 posts) -

I did. And I remember when I sold it the guy at Funco asking what the hell it was.

#20 Posted by TMThomsen (2070 posts) -

Hell yeah, I needed those extra 4 MB of memory for Perfect Dark bot matches!

#21 Posted by PrivateIronTFU (3874 posts) -

Hell yeah. It made Rogue Squadron and Perfect Dark look quite a bit better.

#22 Posted by mwng (919 posts) -

I still have the box for mine too. Man I love boxes...

#23 Posted by PrivateIronTFU (3874 posts) -
@mwng: Me too. I use it to hold all my old N64 game manuals.
#24 Posted by JJOR64 (18881 posts) -

Yep.  Got it with Donkey Kong 64.

#25 Posted by Mcubed (63 posts) -

I never owned one, but I sure remember renting games that needed it, and the store giving me a separate box with the pak rattling around inside. Good times.

#26 Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw (6033 posts) -

Yep, and with the amount of hours I put into Star Wars Racer and Perfect Dark, it was well worth it.

#27 Posted by OneManX (1676 posts) -

Add me to the, "I got it b/c it came with DK64" crowd.

#28 Posted by fancifulunicorn (58 posts) -

Yeah, bought it off a kid at school for $14 so I could play Perfect Dark and Majora's Mask.  Years later, a roommate sold his n64 with my expansion pack still inside.  He bought me a new one though, it cost him $30.

#29 Posted by WitchHunter_Z (882 posts) -

Yep, came with Donkey Kong. And I couldn't not have Donkey Kong.

#30 Posted by Butano (1728 posts) -

Needed one to get 4-players on Gauntlet Legends.

#33 Posted by Daveyo520 (6651 posts) -

No. I never had any games that needed it.

#34 Posted by Lucifer (263 posts) -

Bought Majoras Mask, wouldnt work, plauged my parents for several days until i got a expansion pak.

#35 Posted by astrotriforce (1326 posts) -

Hahahaha, thanks for all the great stories guys!
 
I totally forgot that Majora's Mask used it. On the contrary to the guy who said it was a bad investment because so few games used it. Consider the quality of said games: 
 
Turok 2, Donkey Kong 64, Perfect Dark, Zelda: Majora's Mask, someone said Star Wars Rogue Squadron and Gauntlet Legends. Those are some pretty heavy hitters. I agree that I thought it was WELL worth it once I had mine. And yep mine is still in the system as well! :)

#36 Posted by audiosnag (1604 posts) -

Yup, got it for Turok 2.
That game owned so much ass. Sad to see the series run into the ground.

#37 Posted by MrKlorox (11197 posts) -

Yeah I got a third party one for cheap. I don't think I ever owned any games that made use of it though.

#38 Posted by Budster (134 posts) -

Had to have it got Majora's Mask ah good times! 

#39 Posted by Dalai (6976 posts) -

Hell yeah I did... and still do! How else would I get my Majora's Mask and Perfect Dark on?

The evil illegal way? That is why I still have it of course.
#41 Edited by Meteora (5787 posts) -

Nope, but I do think that the Expansion Pak is probably one of the more successful peripherals/add ons for any console platform, ever. 
 
Edit: How come there's no wiki page for the expansion pak? It needs to have one.

#44 Posted by 234r2we232 (3181 posts) -

Mine is in my N64 at this very moment...

#45 Posted by Skogen (430 posts) -

Came with my DK64

#46 Posted by supermike6 (3530 posts) -

Fuck yes!

#47 Posted by Diamond (8634 posts) -

Never.
 
By the time it was out I either had my import Dreamcast or my heart was set on the Dreamcast.  I wasn't spending very much on console games, and I think I was playing a fair amount of EQ1 as well.

#48 Posted by TheGreatGuero (9130 posts) -

I got it with Donkey Kong 64.

#49 Posted by Kodo_Beast (131 posts) -

Came for free with DK64, so it was an easy purchase for me. Would've bought it anyway for Majora's Mask.
