the n64 is awesome, but I think nostalgia makes folks think it's better than it is.
outside of nintendo and rare stuff, there wasn't a whole lot of great shit. no rpgs except quest 64, no exclusives for adults except perfect dark and goldeneye...
I think that most of people who complain that nintendo doesn't have adult games are tweeners and teens....adults actually like the stuff.
I'm not saying adults shouldn't play mario. they're great games.
my point was that other than games made by nintendo and games made by the company RARE (jet force gemini, conkur, banjo kazooie, perfect dark, goldeneye), the n64 was pretty lacking. nintendo has had this problem for a long time, as far as I'm concerned. the only games worth playing are usually made BY nintendo, and imo, it's not worth buying a console just for the latest mario/zelda rehash or remake. the 64 couldn't handle a lot of the big games of that time because of the cartridge, so many developers put their games on the ps1.
bowlcity, if you can't think of any other good ps1 games besides crash bandicoot (which is a poor man's mario 64, imo), I suggest you look up a few lists. there's resident evil, silent hill, valkyrie profile, the final fantasy games, metal gear solid, chrono cross, xenogears... lots of other great games worth looking into.
