Classic Nintendo 64 Video Games

1. Mario Kart 64 (1996): This racing game has eight playable characters and sixteen tracks to race on. In this game, you can play in the Gran Prix tournament or against a friend in "versus" mode. The graphics are okay but it's the easy gameplay that will keep you addicted. If you love racing games and if you love Mario, then this is the game for you.

2. Mario Party (1998): This is a Mario style board game with fifty six (56) mini games that you can learn and play. This game has eight separate boards to play on and the player must throw dice when it's his turn. There is a mix of hundreds of music styles so that the game never gets old and boring. It's like an adventure Mario game mixed with a board game.

3. Megaman 64 (2000): This is the tenth in the Megaman series. This game features flowing three (3) platforming throughout the game. There are all new levels and new guns featured in this game. This game gives mega man much more movement than the other games and there are some descent cut scenes in the game with zero loading time.

4. Paperboy 64 (1999): As a paperboy in this game, the character must ride a bike and deliver the papers while avoiding dangers and terrorizing the neighbors who do not subscribe to the paper route. This game is basically a remake with far superior graphics and added streets of the original classic on the NES (Nintendo). In the career mode you have a certain amount of time allotted to deliver the papers. If they are not delivered on time, the customers start to get unhappy.

5. WWF Attitude (1999): In this game the character is a wrestling star, and play in career mode or you have the option of building your own character. One or two players can wrestle in cage matches, royal rumbles and tag team bouts. The facial expressions and the punches and fighting, look so much more realistic than the video games when I was growing up.

6. Virtual Pool 64 (1998): A first person 3D pool shooting game that features several types of pool games as well as the tournament mode. The game has nine different games played in multiple locations throughout the entire world. The colors are very bright on this game and the game is very realistic. At the time of its release nothing equaled it as far as a game about Billiards goes. Normally I do not go nuts over a ool game but this one is pretty addictive to say the least.

7. Super Mario 64 (1996): In this one player 64 bit Mario game, the character is Mario and the setting is a huge castle. Mario has polygonal rotating 3D backgrounds in every area of the premises. This game like all Mario games is relatively simple but it's also addicting and hard to put down. This game is just plain fun!

8. Mortal Kombat 4 (1998): This is the first "Kombat" game to use weapons that you pick up during the matches and it's also the first of the series to feature 3D graphics. It's full of blood and gore just like the other games in this fighting series. Of course, Each fighter has their own horrendous finishing move. You must love fighting to like this game.

9. Duke Nukem 64 (1997): This is a single player first person shooter game. Guns and pipe bombs are at your side but, so are monsters. They are at every turn so, be ready. This game has lots of gore and violence and it's played at a fast pace. I would check this game before letting very young children play this game. This is a sequel to the popular original but it has even more animated violence.

10. Castlevania (1999): The game that made survival horror what it is today. In Castlevania, you must defeat vampires, Werewolves and many other night creatures. You are equipped with a whip and as you go you acquire knives, whips, swords and other items for fighting and defeating the ghouls and goblins. Basically, a remake of the original with more weaponry and vastly improved graphics.

      I'm actually a Super Mario fan and I enjoyed playing it ( the old version) when I was a kid. I haven't tried playing the 64 bit but hopefully I can try it soon. Thanks for the info!

      I was going to write an article with the same title, but you beat me to it! Totally agree on all the Mario Games; I see you have a screenshot of Zelda but where is it on the list?? It's hard to beat Ocarina of Time by any console's standards. Well-written article though. Thumbed up :)
