    What is the best N64 game ever made?

    For me it's got to be Body Harvest.  Released in 1998, it was in my opinion the first truly 3d open world.  You travelled around a massive free roaming playing area, taking over planes, tanks, artillery and of course on foot, in order to combat the alien invasion easting it's way through humanity.

    If this sounds a little bit like a Grand Theft Auto style game, that is probably because it was by DMA Design, who of course went on to become Rockstar North.

    This to my mind is a mostly forgotten classic, but I still fire it up now and again.  Damn it's difficult though!

      What about Final Fantasy 7? 1997? That was a full 3D game with an open world.

      I never felt that FF7 was that "open" to be honest, it still seemed linear to me, with go here, meet so and so, do something.  With Body Harvest it just said here is your world, go explore and do your thing.

    You might want to add to the question description "Super Mario 64, Perfect Dark Zero or Superman 64". But on a serious note, my favourite (or better put "easiest to control") game has to be platformer Banjo Kazooie. I only played the N64 until years after it stopped making games, and that was the only game I was genuinely interested in. A great platformer that had working controls.

      I still play the N64! Banjo Kazooie was a great game.  What about Smash Bros?  Seriously!

    Golden Eye!! and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Those are the top two I think as far as N64 games is concerned. Mario 64 was awesome as well as MarioKart 64. Those you can't forget... but I gotta go with Golden Eye. It's a classic!!

      I believe LoZ: Ocarina of Time was voted the best video game in the world even during the late Playstation 2/Gamecube era by critics worldwide. It's still worth the price today ^^

      I understand that Golden Eye laid the foundation for first person shooters today, but I don't think that it was the best game.  Loz: Ocarina of Time, Mario 64 and Mario Kart 64 are great, but don't forget Star Fox 64, Donkey Kong 64, Jet Force Gemini

    I vote Super Smash Bros. for the win!  Who's with me?

      OMGosh... I forgot Smash Bros... I rented that game a billion times until I finally owned it myself tongue

    My all time favorite game would have to be diddy kong racing.  The level design in the game is my favorite for any racing game.

      I liked Diddy Kong Racing too... though I still prefer MarioKart as a racing game... also Star Wars Episode One Racing was awesome too.

      When it comes to racing, Diddy Kong Racing was unique but Mario Kart was so good that they are still making it.  Whether or not it was because of the household name that is mario or not I don't know.

    As a fan of Star Fox, Star Fox 64 took all the good things from the SNES/ Super Famicom Star Fox game and just made it so much better.

    The Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of Time and Super Mario 64 were great games as well.

    For me, it's a  tie between Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time and Donkey Kong 64. They are both still really fun games and I never get tired of playing them. The Zelda franchise is just awesome and will always remain so. As far as DK 64 goes, it holds a special place in my heart not just for its goofiness, fun and surprises, but also how I was finally as an adult able to redeem myself by beating the original Donkey Kong (that you have to play in game in order to get a banana) twice! Which I was never able to do as a kid...it was one of my happiest gaming moments EVER.

    I love Kario Mart. I didn't misspell it because I'm referring to the drinking version of Mario Kart. The rules are simple: First one to finish the race and also finish a beer wins. The catch is you can't drink and drive, so you have to set down your controller to drink.

    Banjo Kazooie was my favorite childhood video game. I still remember spending hours and hours on it as a kid.
