Whether you’re a child of the 90s or not, you should look onto the N64 fondly. Sure, it was the last console to ever use cartridges, and had the weirdest controller ever. But it also broke new ground with both its exclusive titles and hardware innovations. It’s also still a crazy amount of fun to plug and play with friends at home. These are N64 classics you must play

Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire

You tripped an AT-AT with a speeder tow-cable. You had shootouts with Stormtroopers and out ran a Star Destroyer through an astroid field. Oh and you fought Boba Fett to save Han Solo. It was incredible.

Pokemon Snap

Say what you will about Pokemon Snap, but it was a pretty brave entry to the Pokemon series, complete ditching the traditional formula for what was basically a rail shooter. But unlocking its many secrets proved incredibly satisfying and for that reason, it’s still a must play.

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

The Kirby formula used to be pretty simple. Side scroll through a magic land, absorb enemies powers and repeat. What made Kirby 64 so much fun was that you could combine all the powers into brand new abilities. That was seriously half fun.

Mario Tennis

Yeah it was pretty inexplicable why Nintendo chose to mate the cast of Mario with the game of tennis, but the game is still hours of fun to play with friends over a few beverages.

Star Wars: Rogue Squadron

Rogue Squadron let us live out the fantasy of being apart of the rag-tag figure pilot team from the original Star Wars trilogy. Pure bliss.

Diddy Kong Racing

Not as well-known as Mario Kart, but Diddy King racing was extremely innovative. Besides the addition of planes and hovercrafts, the game had an element of open-world exploration, as well as an actual story.

Banjo-Tooie

The follow up to arguable the best platform on the N64, Banjo-Tooie let you start the game off with all the powers that Banjo had learned from the first game, continuing the narrative. Unfortunately this game was near the end of Rare’s glory days.

Conker’s Bad Fur Day

Remember that cute squirrel from Diddy King Racing? Yeah well he had a game filled with drinking, swearing and poo-inspired levels. This game was a huge controversy when it was released, but the gameplay actually lived up to the hype. It’s also pretty tame by today’s Grand Theft Auto standards.

Mario Party

More Mario, we know. But few things were/are as fun as thrashing your friends at mini-games in the comfort of your living room. Alcoholic beverages may or may not improve gameplay.

Perfect Dark

Perfect Dark was the game that solidified the console FPS shooter as a legitimate form, following the wildly successful Goldeneye. Like its predecessor, it also featured wildly addicting multiplayer.

Pokemon Stadium

If you were a fanatic of Pokemon Red/Blue, this game was like the second coming of Christ. But it still gets credit for its ability to port all of your Pokemon over from your Game Boy cartridge.

Donkey Kong 64

The DK Rap alone was probably worth the sticker price. But on top of all that you got an amazing open-world platform experience and varying gameplay with multiple playable characters.

Star Fox 64

The first game to ever utilize the Rumble Pack, which basically set the bar for every single controller invented after it. Also incredibly challenging and wildly satisfying to unlock all the hidden paths through the star system.
