I’m revisiting my N64 collection and thought I’d have the community chime in on what I work on next

Update with less than a hour left here’s the front runners:(only games with 3 or more votes are here)
  1. Mystical Ninja- 7
  2. Goemon’s great adventure- 5 votes
  3. Mischief Makers-5
  4. Banjo Kazooie-4
  5. Pokémon Snap-3
  6. Rogue Squadron-3
  7. Beetle Racing Adventure

Votes are still open and something could make a comeback and I do plan to work through everything. Conker will autoslot when it arrives. Also for series if there’s a tie or they are in the same 3 the sequel will drop out

1. Blast Corps
2. Pokémon Snap
3. Star Wars Episode I: Racer

I know you said no more new game suggestions, but I'd like to know...have you played Rayman 2: The Great Escape?

Also, which games in your collection have you beaten/played to death before?

All time favorite, just never bought a copy. I play both Banjo games every year from the beginning. I’ve put good time in space station Silicon Valley but I can’t say I’ve fully beaten it

First, I would strongly suggest an Everdrive. I was near a complete set of N64 before finally taking the plunge. Best decision ever...Especially when playing games like Stunt Racer and Sculptor's Cut. I was anal about taking those in and out of my 64 too many times and damaging the board.

My vote:

Mystical Ninja
Blast Corps
Hot Wheels

If Blast Corps is too cliche, play Pokemon Snap. It's my wife's favorite 64 game and you can beat that in one sitting easy.
 
First games decided!

And final drum roll the top of this batch is
  1. Mystical Ninja- 9
  2. Goemon’s great adventure- 5 votes
  3. Mischief Makers-6
  4. Banjo Kazooie-4
  5. Pokémon Snap-4
  6. Rogue Squadron-3
  7. Beetle Racing Adventure-3
  8. DKR 3
  9. space station silicon valley
Ok so Mystic Ninja means no GGA for this round so the 3 picks of this round are
  1. Mystical Ninja
  2. Mischief Makers
  3. Pokémon Snap(I get to choose on tie breakers)
Hmmm all fun picks and don’t worry all the other games will get their chance soon enough. I may do Pokémon snap first as I picked it up a few years back and never got a chance to play it and it should be the quickest to beat. Vote reset each round FYI and Conker bfd gets an instant slot in, Ive wanted to play that one a while
Oh and is Pokémon snap a straightforward playthough or do you guys have something special(but not extremely difficult) you want me to do?

Eh already did all the buying I’m doing for now... and I still hope for a n64 mini to happen has an even better option. Also Blast Corps is on the list

Fair enough!

Regarding Snap, you should aim to get to the final "secret" area and snap that pic of the elusive Mew!
Any tips I should know on that one? Like how the general unlock system works


Irony is I want to work on Battle For Naboo over Rogue Squadron as I’ve never gotten around to beating the former(done the latter a few times)

If you want to get more games in the future, remove those tabs. FYI, if you open up the system, you can just remove the entire plastic thing, no drilling needed.
This way you not only get the opportunity to play some cool Japanese exclusives like Bangaioh, Sin & Punishment, Puyo Puyo Sun, Bomberman 64, Densha de Go 64 etc., the games are stupid cheap compared to US and EU releases.

I would go with lesser famous games (third-party games are especially neglected on N64 and mist were never re-released afterwards.

- Wave Race 64 (so ahead of its time with its physics based gameplay and still so fun to play)
- Space Station Silicon Valley ( DMA Design, now Rockstar North, true masterpuece on N64).
- Mystical Ninja (quirky and charming japanese action-adventure game)

Can anyone recommend a good third party controller?, the stick on my current controller isn't bad but I'm interested in both the Retro-bit Tribute 64 and the Brawler 64 but I'm not sure which way to go.

I'm leaning toward the Tribute 64 if only because of the price.

I'm not sure about the other two games, but I'm going to recommend you do Space Station Silicon Valley.

That game is an underrated gem on the N64.

Mystical Ninja staring Goemon is one of my all-time favorite comfort food games so that gets my vote. Unfortunate I don't see Ogre Battle 64 in that pile.

Ok so here’s the deal, I ordered Conker’s Bad Fur Day, Mission Impossible and Shadowman(right under a $100 in total)
From here on out keep everything to what I Have no more new game suggestions. The idea of this thread was to encourage me to play what I have not to tempt me to buy more, I have a big enough backlog already

So remember vote for 3 games for me to start with and if they don’t have a campaign to suggest a complete condition you want a picture of
Out of curiosity, do you have Kirby or DK64 elsewhere?

I thought I'd jump in too as just last week I got my N64RGB up and running on my 25" Trinitron and I started with SM64 which to my great shame I've never finished. I'm currently 25 or so stars in and I'm surprised by how well the game holds up.

I never had an N64 as a kid so I haven't had a great deal of exposure to the platform, I think I'll follow up SM64 with OOT as despite owning the 3DS remake I never finished that either, willing to take suggestions though!

So first day update, here’s my progress
On Mischief Makers made it to area 4

On Mystical Ninja I beat the first boss at edoe Castle

And on Pokémon snap I unlocked the river(you’ll have to take my word on that one, lots of fun surprises like when I accidentally pushed Charmeleon into the lava.
And tomorrow my work week begins so we’ll see how things go. Also as said before when Conker’s bfd arrives it jumps to the top

You’re killing that beautiful pixel art with that aspect ratio :(

Why would I need a third copy of Goemon’s great adventure? And I have S&P on Vc. I’m also not a sports fan
My bad, I didn't see you had it listed as Goemon's Great Adventure and not Mystical Ninja 2.
What about Wonder Project J?

Probably not, focus of this thread is to get me playing what I have, not buying more(and even then I already have Conkers, Shadowman and Mission impossible on the way)

And that is Pokémon Snap done!


Now normally I’d just move onto Beating the other two games in this batch but since it arrived it’s getting added to the current group(I’ll probably start it Monday)
And that is...

Mission impossible?!?! No it’s Bad Fur day of course
So current todo list is:
  1. Mystical Ninja
  2. Mischief Makers
  3. Conker’s bad fur day
Regular turn over votes will resume after I beat these guys... or beat two and decide I need a change of pace
