The N64 was the first system I ever asked my parents for. A question that took almost a year to answer when I received one for my 8th birthday in 1997, which included Super Mario 64 and Mario Kart 64. The collection quickly grew from that point on, as my uncle gave me his games that he had already completed, including Shadows of the Empire and GoldenEye, the greatest shooter of all time. And speaking of all time favorites, this was the system that powered Ocarina of Time, not only my favorite Zelda game but my favorite game of all time. While my last purchases for the system were for Majora's Mask and The World is Not Enough in 2000, I returned to system in following years to catch up on games I had missed like Banjo-Tooie and Conker's Bad Fur Day.
