Ocarina, Mario Party, Majora's, Smash Bros., Pokemon Puzzle League, Mario 64, Paper Mario, Mario Kart, and so many other great games. 64 was a great system. Hours and hours and hours of my life were spent with it.

As a kid, I had nearly 50 N64 games.

Nowadays I have a little over 15 N64 games. I sold all the poor games or games that haven't aged well. I kept all the big Nintendo games and most of the Rare ones.

Even then some games like Ocarina, Majora's Mask, Starfox 64, etc. have better remakes on 3DS so the N64 ones aren't worth going back to anymore.

I hope you picked up all the classic Nintendo games you missed over the years.

I still have all the major Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, etc. releases on every console. Same for Starfox, F-zero, Kirby, Pokemon, Pikmin, Smash, etc.

All these games still hold up and are very replayable. Nintendo games never get old.

Nearly 50, really? N64 games were on average pricier than Saturn and PS1 games. Especially the 2nd and 3rd party titles. Wasn't Conker one of the most expensive N64 titles?

And were there really 40+ games worth owning for the N64? I mean beyond the Nintendo 1st parties and the Rare titles there wasn't much else on the console. Silicon Valley? Ogre 64? Michief Makers? That South Park racing game? Since you're not a wrestling fan I doubt you owned all of those N64 wrestling titles.

The SNES game had no blood, like the arcade game or SEGA Megadrive one.

SNES Alladin by Capcom? I own that game, too. Supposedly the MD/Genesis version(made by another company) is better but I liked the SNES game just fine.

I also liked that Lion King game for the Genesis(the version I had) and SNES.

Okay. Yeah that's why I got to play it. My mom thought it might have had blood but I said no.

How could she know? Some moral panic-programme on TV or radio?

We've never owned the original MK game but my brother had it loaned to him a couple of times. At the time I had no idea I was looking at a censored game. Then he got MK3 and I saw MK in its full splendor. But we were pissed it didn't have Scorpion, so Cyrax became our favourite character for being yellow like him. Fortunately UMK3 fixed that... but we had that for the Saturn with long loading times

I miss the days when most people were down to play fighters. But since online gamign became a thing and people saw how hard it was to become good at a fighting game and that you have to lose A LOT of matches, they just said "screw this". So whenever I ask someone who isn't much into fighting games if they'd like to play a SF bout or two they're always like "no, you've been playing that game since you were little and thus are a master at it. I can even barely remember how to throw a hadouken."

Streetfighter II made fighting videogames becoming like what shoot 'em up games later became in popularity.

Sure but SF isn't even the highest selling fighting franchise. Mortal Kombat and Tekken have sold more than SF has. Only truly SF II was a game "everyone" owned. SF IV was also popular but not as popular. Alpha series and especially SFIII? Those sold peanuts compared to Tekken.

People are more willing to play shooting games. SF is considered "too difficult" for many, whilst Tekken and MK are more accessible.
