I'm thinking about buying a Nintendo 64, but I dunno if there's really enough games that I want, considering many of the console's big hitters, like Mario 64 and the Zelda games, are on later Nintendo consoles which I already own. So I felt I should ask - what is there on N64, but not Wii, DS, or Gamecube, that would make it worth buying one? They have to have been released in Europe (which I imagine most will have been), and I have no interest in first-person shooters, but if there are enough good games of whatever type then I might well buy one.

No FPS or shooters? but that was it's whole bit besides Mario and Zelda!
The only other highly rated games were:
Harvest Moon 64
Space Station Silicon Valley
Blast Corps
Ridge Racer 64
Super Smash Bros
Banjo Kazooie
Conkers Bad Fur Day

Blast Corps! Probably my favorite N64 game of all time! icon-silverbolt.gif Oh, how I'd love a sequel.

Yeah, you're right. I think I'll buy a Dreamcast instead, since there's more games for that that I'd like to get.

Too bad too few N64 games have been ported to the DS/DSi but thank god for reliable hardware!
Something tells me I will be able to pic up and play Turok and Body Harvest long after my 360 has died and become irreplacable.

Hybrid Heaven and Body Harvest. Two very unappreciated, and kick ass games.

Yeah, looks like you'd have more fun with the Dreamcast, but if you ever decide to get a N64, a few games I'd like to point out:

Well I'd 'like' to suggest the two Castlevania 64 games, but I completely understand I'm in a major minority for loving those games.

I'd definitely suggest the first Paper Mario, as I think it was only relased on the N64, and it's a great RPG.

BomberMan Hero. Really, it's an awsome platformer.

I suggest the Resident Evil 2 port if you like those kinda games. I liked the N64 port mainly for the extra files and such thrown into the game.

Were the Rouge Squadron's ever released for other systems? I only have the first one, but it's pretty fun.

Star Fox 64. Great game, and I don't recall it being ported.

Kirby The Crystal Shards. My first and sadly only Kirby game. But it sure was fun! Again, pretty sure it was never ported, but I could be wrong.

Mario Kart 64 is still pretty good.

If you like Pokemon, I suggest giving Pokemon Snap a try once. Don't pay a lot for it. Once you beat the game, it'll be a long time before you go back to it.

^ Except Kirby, Starfox, and Paper Mario are available on virtual console....

I'll reccomend Donkey Kong 64. I used to play that at my friends house all the time!

I KNEW there was a way to play them on newer consoles. I keep forgetting about Virtual Console as I usually have all the games listed there on their ACTUAL consoles.

So yeah, maybe not those three.

I said "good", not "great". Most people have been listing "great" games is all. Plus, being a Transformers fan tends to help, and I hope you understand why I took the liberty of assuming someone posting here would be. XD
