I was an idort as a kid. Had both PS1 and N64 (as well as PC).
Loved both consoles back then and had a blast.
Nowadays I prefer PS1 because of disc burning and a huge library to sift thorugh.
N64 was cool back then, but if I try to play it today, it's just a blurry mess.
Still wouldn't go without it, it has a few really good games, but they're very few, like a dozen or so and that's it.
I remember a friend of mine back in the day got a Saturn on launch, but only because they had a Genesis before.
Tried it once, only game they had was Sonic Jam and I didn't really much care for it. Never saw that console again after a week.

It's simple, really.

If you want to play high quality games and enjoy multiplayer, you go with N64.

If you're autistic and like grindy RPGs, you get a PS1.

If you want to bring the arcade experience home, you get a Saturn.

This is literally all there is to it. The PS1 doesn't have almost anything beyond JRPGs and multiplats, and the Saturn is very arcade-oriented. The N64 remains as the one console which caters to people with a variety of tastes who appreciate games of a very high caliber. Anyone who spouts this bullshit about the PS1's "huge" library clearly has never played one, because, literally, more than 99% of the games are absolute dogshit, even most of the "good" ones. Low production values, very little content, etc. Nintendo has always been the go-to company for high quality, and during this period they were heavily assisted by Rare and even third parties like Midway to bring a whole assortment of great games to the platform.

I had a friend with a Saturn. He had Astal and Panzer Dragoon Saga. I thought both games sucked. The Saturn had a huge problem with getting its good games to US market.

Astal had uglier graphics than DKC 2 (a previous gen console game) and boring flat levels. I haven't played it since 1996, those were just my impressions when it was a new game.

Panzer Dragoon is a 3d rail shooter. Plenty of people don't like these games.

>> No.4487809

This sort of argument is ridiculous because who had over 20 games as a kid?

N64 was the sort of system where almost all of its classics are general appeal to everyone and everyone had them. It also has some good PC ports. Best console approximation of Dukematch. Best console port of Hexen. Actually, better than playing Hexen in 320x240 on a PC, since it had hardware accelereation.

>> No.4487812

>That's bullshit and you know it. Playstation had a humongous amount of games.
Yes, it had a ton of games, and almost each and every last one of them was complete dirt. It has a shovelware library rivaled only by the PS2 and Wii, and even then, it still comes out on top.

If you liked RPGs, the PS1 was your system. Every kind of turn-based, strategic, weeby shit you could ever want, all in one place. Outside of that, it had practically nothing. There were games like Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Alundra, Medievil, etc., but they were always just lower quality clones of better games available on the N64. If you wanted a good FPS, adventure game, platformer, etc., you were shit out of luck.

The N64 by comparison had a veritable treasure trove of amazing games which were extremely diverse. You had classics like SM64, OoT, Banjo, Star Fox 64, MK64, Smash Bros. and all that, but then you had a ton of other amazing games like Perfect Dark, Blast Corps, Tetrisphere, the Goemon games... the list goes on. That isn't even counting the multiplats, which were almost always better on N64, like Gauntlet Legends, Rayman 2, Quake 2, etc.

As someone who's played both consoles extensively, the fact is that the PS1 has a lot of quantity but little to no quality. If you aren't into RPGs, it is a terrible, terrible system.

The de facto argument of someone who has never actually bothered to explore the N64's fantastic library.

It's funny, because if you talk to someone who's actually knowledgable about video games, even if they hate the N64 they'll still be able to name one or two dozen great games. The people who shill this repetitive "Mario, Zelda, Goldeneye" bullshit are the ones who probably never touched an N64 in their lives. The N64 had a fucking great library. Literally the best platformers, shooters, puzzlers, adventure games, action games, racers and multiplayer of its gen. The only thing it was missing were RPGs, and even then, it ironically had two of the best with Paper Mario and Ogre Battle 64.

Just stop being a fucking retard and depriving yourself of good games.

Actually, according to wikipedia there is a grand total of 388 games on the N64 (296 if you count NA only), and the average weight of a N64 cartridge is around 95g each, which means that the N64 has far below a ton of games in total. In fact, it only has approx 40kg of games.
