The PSX, sure the N64 had more amazing games by Nintendo and Rare but the PSX had so much third party support that the sheer number of good games buries the N64.

I still remember the agonizingly slow pace of the release of games on the console forced me to buy Sony's hardware as a kid.

My brother had PSX and while it was fun and had a lot of game variety, I just ended up getting more use out of my N64. And with the games we owned back then, the N64 ones definitely stand out in my mind way more. Also, I thought the Saturn was a rare, very expensive console. I literally had no idea it was supposed to even compete. I thought Dreamcast was their answer.

playstation with the saturn as a very close second. N64 dead last with the fewest games. All 3 are worth owning, because you will find great games on each platform.

because i had it
But seriously, many popular and now expected gaming tends started on there.
1. like how Sony marketed and made/published games targeting a more mature audience, we had games like resident evil series, silent hill, Castlevania, etc. Like more mature themed games. If not for Sony tapping into older audiences, we could have possibly lived in a world when Vidya is still considered by normies as something only little kiddies play. Look at Nintendo, 99% "family friendly" (aka kiddy) games, with one or two more mature toned games. (Conkers bad fur day, and games like perfect dark maybe)

2. It started the "cinematic" trend triple A games are expected to have up to this day. Look at games with voice acting before MGS both ps1 and n64 and other consoles. Ganes like Resident evil 1 were known for that cheesy voice acting, cause back then no one really cared for "cinematic" quality so all they did was grab a couple of guys working at the company and tell them to read some lines of dialogue. If you haven't seen a metal gear solid 1 analysis video, see one now. It explains everything better than I could. First off, the voice acting was exponentially better than anything before it, then it had story building cutscenes that looked straight out of a movie. When the gameplay prologue started, the credits kept rolling on the screen to give that game a more cinematic feel. There's many more, just watch a video analysis.

3. First to have CD based games. Nintendo INSISTED on using overpriced, outdated, and impractical cartridge format for the N64, only making a disk drive way later (in Japan only) because they regretted choosing cartridges.

4. Solidified a "standard" controller format still in use to this day and not only by PlayStation. D pad, 4 action buttons, 2 analogue sticks, 4 shoulder buttons. Take a look at any controller today and you can see all of these features on them. Ps 2-3-4 Xbox original-360-1 hell even to some extent the wiiU

I think it's more fair to say they had their advantages, but some pretty huge disadvantages as well, namely storage capacity. The N64 couldn't compete with the RPGs and cinematic games that were hugely popular on Playstation at the time. What did the 64 have as an answer to FFVII and Metal Gear Solid? Quest 64 and fucking Hybrid Heaven. You just couldn't effectively have certain genres on Nintendo because the cartridges didn't hold enough data.

Strangely they didn't learn their lesson even after switching to discs, coming up with those inexplicable mini discs for Gamecube and then sticking with the outdated DVD format with the Wii. They seem to actively hate the idea of using a modern storage medium.

Huh? Quest was confirmed to be unfinished, if you want a proper RPG, look toward Paper Mario.
Hybrid Heaven was never meant to be "N64's answer to MGS", I think the confusion comes from the fact Hybrid Heaven's dev team had people who worked on the MSX Metal Gear games and Snatcher, but Hybrid Heaven is not a stealth game, it's a turn-based wrestling/fighting game masquerading as a third person action game. I certainly prefer to play Hybrid Heaven nowadays over Final Fantasy VII and its obnoxious random battles with loading times and long attack animations.

Debatable. But both versions are different enough to warrant enjoyment if you like the game, it'd be silly to love one and hate the other, if you like Bangai-O, you will want to play both. Also, controls are actually better on N64, it was designed for it.

Fair point, although I prefer how it controls on the N64 rather than on PC controllers.

It's not a system-seller though, sidescrollers were a diamond dozen back in the 4th gen, and I can think of several that surpass GGE. 4 player co-op is okay, but won't it affect balance?

Bangai-O has better graphics and sound on DC, but I still find the more retro graphics of the N64 very charming, and I value controls over graphics. Still, as I said, both versions are different enough, if you liked the DC version, playing the N64 version is mandatory.

Yeah I was in the same boat, had both N64 and PS1. I had the N64 first, and then got the PS1 to play RPG's and more "adult" games.

Graphics and Music are better on the DC for sure but some gameplay mechanics have been changed such as the removal of upgrades and the how you no longer need to charge your special. It's definitely a less demanding game on DC.

Controls are where the N64 version really shines. You can set it up however you want, including using the d-pad for movement and the analog stick to fire. The DC version is restricted to the face buttons for firing.

I actually prefer both N64 and Saturn over PS1, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate the PS1, it's just it has less games I want to play nowadays, a lot of my favorite PS1 games were multiplats that got better ports somewhere else.
it's still nice to find little hidden gems on the ps1's catalogue, like Harmful Park, but overall it's the one I like the least of the big three, but I'm fine with people who like PS1 the best, it really was a great system overall due to its catalogue.

PS1. It's thin on some genres, but it's got a ton of variety overall. On PS1, you ended up with the lion's share of games. The biggest drawback is that there's a mindnumbing amount of shovelware too.
Like, there's quite literally more shovelware games on the machine than the N64 and Saturn have games in their library period, combined.
but still -- if you liked RPGs, it had 'em. If you liked shoot-em-ups, it had 'em. Racing? Lots. Fighting? Saturn did better... but only if you had a RAM cart. If you were into 3D fighting, PS1 did loads better unless you really liked Sega's (rather good) 3D fighters and nothing else.
it lacked 2D games, although strictly for marketing rather than technical reasons, and there's some very nice 2D visuals on the machine (Harmful Park, the Tales of games, Adventure of Little Ralph, Castlevania, Megaman X series, etc)

I like the Saturn, but the selection is way too slim and a ridiculous percentage of the best titles on the machine are arcade ports.

The N64 has some really big hitter names, but it's way too focused in specific genres. N64 is a fantastic machine for 3D platformers and racing. It's miserable for RPGs or fighting games, and okay for FPSes (actually, none of the 5th gen machines were any good for this). The handful of multiplats on the machine tended to end up on Dreamcast, there wasn't much reason to bother with the N64 version. Best thing about the machine is its multiplayer, which towers above the rest (really, what are you doing with your three other friends PS1, Quake II and Crash Team Racing? like, those are good games, but they're all I can think of offhand, it's pretty slim pickings if you want good multi).

>It's miserable for RPGs or fighting games

How so? The fact only a handful of publishers wanted to make those genres for the N64 doesn't mean the system can't handle them.

If you mean the N64 can't handle FMVs due to carts, then yeah, but RPGs? It can do it just fine. Same with fighting games, it didn't receive any ports of the big franchises from Capcom or SNK, but that has more to do with the fact releasing on the N64 was too expensive, but make no mistake, ports of games like SFA3 or Vampire Savior on N64 would have been potentially better on N64 than the ports released on PS1.
Same with 3D fighting games, N64 didn't got any 3D fighting game of the caliber of virtua fighter or tekken, but it's fully capable of doing them. Flying Dragon's SD mode is actually pretty fun.

>> No.3714320

pretty much the entire post talks more about library than hardware -- N64 has much better hardware in every way than the rest (the main CPU is literally a direct descendant of the PS1's and is like three or four times faster, the video hardware is real SGI stuff, there are some poor decisions holding it back, but it's good hardware)

but a console's worth is all about the games available on it and there's fuck all of either genre on the machine
like, the hardware isn't unsuitable for either (shit, you could even port a 2D fighter like SFA3 to it, which could possibly get a nearly perfect port assuming they didn't cheap out on ROM size)

I don't remember Gold being bad.

Then again, both of those games are western fighting games.

There just isn't many other 2D fighting games on N64 to actually compare, only Rakuga Kids which showcases an immense amount of animation frames, I'm not sure if there's any PS1 fighting game with this much frames per character.

I'm seeing this way too often on /vr/ as of late. Are we getting raided?

>> No.3715940

I honestly don't understand the giant boner for the N64 when its library was small as fuck and had almost no third party support

For me it would be
1. PS1 - It had a fucking HUGE library of games, decent ports, hidden gems everywhere, CD audio and gave birth to countless classics

2. Saturn - Small library in the west, but the Japanese library is pretty nice. Supposedly a 2D beast that got the 3D meme forced mid-way in development, making it too complex to program for

3. N64 - Carts are just not acceptable anymore, they can't hold enough data which videogames rely on for all their assets. The library consisted of first party games that focused on the multiplayer. Really really overrated console

I agree the N64 is overrated by some, but it's also underrated by others, like you.
Only a few people can truly see the good things N64 has to offer (like the Saturn, some great N64 games were japan-only)

>> No.3715951

It's hard for me to pick a favorite. PlayStation had the single player games, N64 had the multiplayer, and Saturn has the niche. I choose Harem Anime route.

N64 simply doesn't have very many "hardcore" games to choose from, so it's always going to get shit on by the pretentious elitists around here on /vr/.

Honestly I want to like the N64 (because carts), and wish it'd have been more successful, but as it stands the library just leaves a lot to be desired.

>> No.3716004


It didn't get arcade ports, but I think it got one of the most "hardcore" games of 5th gen, F-Zero X. The skill ceiling for that game is ridiculous.
PS1 is the most casual console of 5th gen though, with RPGs being the most popular genre and, unlike the SNES, side-scrolling action games were scarce on it, leaving the only hardcore options to be the arcade ports (which were most of the times better on Saturn)

The Playstation had lots of exclusive fighters and shoot them downs, though.

N64 because I like action games more than slower-paced games and I like multiplayer more than singleplayer. I've played some good games on PS, but ultimately the number that actually interest me is low, as I find many of the bigger titles underwhelming. It wins for 'obscure gems' though, tons of random little games worth checking out. N64 has maybe fifty total worth playing, but I'd still rather play those fifty than the small roster of interesting PS games.

Saturn is cool but I can't into moon.

I like the PlayStation. It has some of my all-time favorites and since it was so popular, I feel like I keep finding new hidden gems on it. Have you guys played Gamera 2000? It's fantastic!

The Saturn is a nice console as well with great games, but it has become a nightmare to collect for. Everybody knows what's what on it and every game costs ridiculous amounts of money. Friend of mine sold Elevator Action Returns recently, because he could afford the PCB by selling the Saturn version. That's just insane!

N64 is a meme console. I like watching game room tours on YouTube and the N64 collectors are the worst. Just Mario shit everywhere, "muh nostalgia" and just the same 5 games over and over again. These are the kind of people who buy repros of Earthbound and don't see the problem.

Although if you like Gamera 2000 and on-rail shooters in general you aren't that bad.

Well, it started when I was looking for ideas to optimize my living space. I've ended up with just as much shit as all the other nerds on YouTube, so good ideas for storage and display was what I was after.
Has not been much use though, Americans seem to all have infinite space and massive homes, so they have arcade cabinets, console displays from Gamestop and the likes.

nobody with any merit thinks that, it is however a solid game, one of the best of the generation with great level designs and rich mechanics.

That said the N64 is absolutely the weakest console of the generation.

My favorite is the Saturn because I like stupid weird obscure crap.
I have spent the most time on the 64, because I had it as a child and played goldeneye and rush probably 10000 hours.
But the winner of the generation was the ps1. Besides leading in sales, the cultural impact, and any of 38 other issues I could touch, it had metal gear solid, which at the time was about the best game ever made for me. It was like a movie, and games just hadn't been like that before. Sure they tried. But anyway
People can debate this topic forever, but it's obvious to the record books that
The ps won.

This. People call games overrated when a game is good and they don't like it. Everyone has opinions, and they're all subjective. A game literally can't be 'overrated', its rating is simply the result of many people liking it a lot. Just because you don't like a game personally doesn't mean other people are somehow incorrect for liking it.
