The fact is on any console, and I mean ANY console, about 10 to 15% of the library will be good to great, while the rest is 'meh' to outright crap. So yeah, by sheer statistics alone there's more good PS1 games to check out, but the other side of that coin means the PS1 also has a WHOLE LOT MORE shit.

Up until 5th gen I was a die-hard Nintendo loyalist - I had fought in the console wars against the Genesis, and I was prepared to do it all over again against the playstation - and for a few months I did. But I just wanted to play Final Fantasy 7 SO DAMN BADLY that I broke and got a used PS1 for just that reason. And if you think this is the part of the story where I say I learned the era of my Nintendo fanboy ways, turned my back on them, and walked forever down the Sony path then fuck you. From that point on I just simply owned both systems and continued to acquire games for both. It made for a happy adolescence.

I won't deny that the PS1 crushed the N64 in terms of sales, but just having more games doesn't really mean anything. The PS1 was much easier to develop for, and it having CD media made it much more appealing to developers in general. There were a LOT of shitty shovelware games on the PS1.

THIS is the most clear example of a console completely destroying the competition:

Why not? n64 has some pretty good looking 2D games, but since its forte was 3D, and producing for the system was expensive as hell, and what the public wanted at the moment like crazy was 3D, developing 2D for N64 was kind of commercial suicide.

Are you legitimately retarded? OP made a post about business, I simply posted some facts countering his assertion that the PS1 was a more economically successful machine than the N64.

Look, the fact is, the N64 made more money, it was a better designed system that didn't need to be played upside down just to work, it had more revolutionary games, and it had better games. The N64 was the better system. It's time to get over it and accept reality.

>> No.4722138

>>4722085
>which? list them.
The fact you have to even asks tells me everything I need to know about your age and your experience level. Ocarina of Time alone was more influential than anything on the PS1 library, it completely revolutionized 3D third-person combat and exploration by popularizing the use of features like z-targeting, first-person view when using weapons, etc. On top of that, Super Mario 64 was equally as influential in how it handled the manipulation of the game camera in 3D spaces and the use of analog controls. Then you've got Goldeneye which basically set the standard for all modern shooters to come (for better or worse), Smash which popularized a totally different form of fighting game that titles like Power Stone have since emulated, Star Fox 64 which left a mushroom stamp on every game that ever attempted on-rails space combat... the list goes on.
> the psx library absolutely destroys n64
It's funny you mention "old ass Nintendo IP... but in 3D!" as some kind of easy way to dismiss the quality of the N64's library, because the ironic truth is that even the most popular PS1 games were most SNES-tier JRPGs and platformers that were indistinguishable from their 2D brethren aside from using polygons. Look at FF7. It does absolutely nothing new from a gameplay perspective, it just had new graphics and CG cutscenes. Now compare Ocarina of Time to ALttP -- they're practically a different genre.

You can stamp your foot and scream about how much better PS1 was, but it really wasn't. Think about this for a second: the PS1 sucked so much that it sold almost half as many games as actual console units, meanwhile the N64 sold twice as many games as console units, and made more money to boot. Consumers spoke and the end result is that people enjoyed N64 games more than PS1 games. This is the harsh reality of it my dude.

I loved the NES and SNES, but jumped to PS1 when it went to $200 in summer 1996 right before the N64 launch in Burgerland. I was happy that I picked PS1 because cost-wise I was able to get so many more games, and have a library of every genre imaginable, compared to N64. N64 games, even used, were still usually over $40 while year-old PS1 games were under $25. Sony's Greatest Hits line was awesome for this as well.

I never looked at the N64 as a system with any games I needed. I borrowed it from a friend and loved F-Zero 64, but even that wasn't at good as Wipeout XL.

N64 did some great things and it, along with Saturn, were good systems that would have likely done even better had it not been for the PS1 completely dominating the generation.

I started it about a year ago by posting a bunch of threads about PS1 and N64 with greentext bulletins about how good or bad they were, in hopes of creating huge console wars, dividing the userbase of /vr/ and finally encouraging the creation of /v2k/.

It is annoying. But we are on a site where almost everyone has something prove, and the only way to prove that something is by 'trapping' people in arguments.

I agree threads started with the sole purpose of saying, "this console sucks compared to the console I had at the time" need to be snuffed out. There is absolutely no room for actual discussion in these threads.

I don't buy that it's only one person, people love to stir shit for those sweet ( you ) dopamines, and how they laugh alone in their rooms at making strangers argue on the internet.

It's a serious problem. And console wars were fucking stupid back then, but they're beyond pointless now that they're not even on the market anymore.

i always thought half life and final fantasy 8 were better received at the time


ps1 was the biggest win for a retro console compared to the competition, at the start it was not certain that the ps1 would beat the others since many people were waiting for n64 but also consider how easy it is for ps1 systems to wear out the cd drive, i have never personally seen a non work n64 but have about 10 ps1's with cd drives that have various amounts of trouble reading discs

on the other hand when ps2 was announced everyone automatically assumed it would be the winner and that is the last time a console dominated so much

In Brazil the Famiclones dominated, SMS didn't really become more popular until the 16-bit era, where Master System was a "low cost" console, but during the 8-bit craze, it was all about dem famiclones.
The whole "SMS was soooo big in brazil!" is a bit of a meme.

Mario 64-- out-played by both Crash and Spyro

Mario Kart 64 -- CTR is better in every conceivable way

OoT -- A million other RPGs and adventure games do it better

Goldeneye/Perfect Dark -- merely passable but made even worse by the stupid ass controller

Smash Bros-- Not actually a fighting game but since it's treated like one, again, a much bigger variety of quality fighters on PS

Banjo -- Was never good. The fact that they are so highly revered is evidence that N64 fans were starved for anything they could get

DK64 -- even worse in every way than Banjo

What the fuck else is there on N64? Mario Party? Snowboard Kids or some desperate shit like that?
Get real. For any and every example of a good N64 game, there are ten PS games that fill the same criteria.

Well, the premise was that we rule multiplats out, superior or not.
I can't think of many superior ports on PS, to be honest. On Saturn yes, but most of them Japan-only and RAM cart-required.
Still, this was about exclusives. Can you list 50 GREAT exclusives for PS or Saturn?

There was no premise. I just stated I could easily name 50 good games on either system off the top of my head, exclusives and definitive versions. Most of the PS1 games would be exclusives for sure, I mean you could name 25 JRPGs alone. And you can almost name 50 good shmups on the Saturn.

You started off amazingly with GITS; one of my favorites on the console, good taste.
However, you started listing mostly multiplats (many of which are not the best versions), your tiny N64 selection is at least all exclusives.
You should explore the N64 catalogue a bit more, there's a whole bunch of good games you're missing, not even 1st party.

I don't think the N64 has any hidden gems at this point, if you look a bit you'll find some good games. Which are the ones you've already played and didn't like? With that base I can recommend you some.
Of course, you're out of luck with RPGs unless you know japanese.

The N64 Bombermans are different, they're 3D action-adventure games.
There was a traditional 2D Bomberman on the N64, but it's Japan-only and expensive as shit, one of the last games released for the system.
Anyway the first Bomberman 64 game has multiplayer mode that's essentially classic BM.
Of course Saturn or Super series is best, but N64 has the convenience of having 4 controller ports ready to go.

My N64 is basically a Perfect Dark and Sin&Punishment machine these days.

I've played through OoT exactly once, dont even know where my Mario64 cart is and DK64 can eat a bag of dicks (only good thing about that was the expansion pack that came with it) Wave Race, Pilot Wings, some fucking Nascar game I dont even know where it came from... Sold Mario Kart and Conker years ago.
Overall, N64 is shit.

I was insanely jealous of my friend who had a PS back in the day.
