The Nintendo 64 released across North America on September 30th 1996.
What are your memories of this awesome console, and what software helped you warm to it?. I loved all the Rare ones, the games we now consider classics, I think they played a huge role in defining the console, but for me it was the first Zelda and Mario games that had the biggest impact, those two games surely took things to the next level in 3D gaming.
I remember playing my N64 obsessively with my siblings, mainly bouts of Mario Kart 64 and Diddy Kong Racing, the latter which I personally consider the superior game in almost every aspect. I probably would have played mine a whole lot more if Nintendo had released Animal Crossing on the machine.
I still have an unused boxed one, I'm saving it for a more momentous anniversary :). Do you still have yours and what games do you have in your collections currently?
