Indeed, I didn't even mind the backtracking. I feel like Kazooie is way too easy until you get to Mad Monster Mansion. But Tooie has a good balance of challenge right out the gate.

Are you 15?
By the time Nintendo spent millions of dollars trying to make their new console significant, PSX stormed the market and spawned a new generation of more adult gamers/gaming. Nintendo's stubbornness to use cartridges while Sega and Sony used CD's and STILL targeting their colorful, censored, family-friendly games to kids whilst completely forgetting about the new wave of gamers, left them behind with an outdated (on the day of release) piece of hardware with shitty, poor man's ports of decent games, some Nintendo franchise rehashes, one decent RPG, most overrated platformer game ever (SM64), a joke of a controller and the ugliest console design Nintendo's ever done. There are are literally 10-15 good games on N64.

But I still kinda like it. It's Nintendo's worst, but it's still better than most of Atari's output for example.

This is bait but I'll take it everyone.
>Nintendo's stubbornness to use cartridges
Totally true, it was stubborn. However, in retrospective, it's nice that N64 was the last big mainstream console to do carts. I miss carts (and no, these small SD cards that new systems like the Switch use aren't real carts). No loading times and more durability is a good thing for retro vidya. The storage limit is often exaggerated, most of the times, the majority of the data space on CD-ROM games are used for FMVs and CD audio, it doesn't make the machine more "powerful".
>olorful, censored, family-friendly games
Ah, yeah. I remember the times when Turok, Goldeneye, Killer Instinct Gold, Mortal Kombat Trilogy, Doom 64 and many others were censored.
>outdated (on the day of release) piece of hardware
What do you mean? The N64 was actually the most powerful consumer-level piece of hardware at the time. It wasn't until late '96 that the 3dfx voodoo card was released for PC.
>poor man's ports of decent games
When it comes to ports, it's inconsistent because sometimes the wrong developers were chosen by certain publishers. N64 has decent ports as far as I remember, some better than others, but it's not like PS or Saturn were any better (in fact, most of the times they weren't).
Generally, PC had the best verisons of multiplats, this hasn't changed. But after PC, N64 was the next best thing. It's why you've got Star Wars Racer on N64 and Dreamcast but not on PS1.
>some Nintendo franchise rehashes
I'll admit, Nintendo didn't create many new IPs around this time, and focused more on translating their existing ones to 3D. However, they funded some really cool new IPs under their license, like when they commisioned Treasure to do Sin and Punishment.
>one decent RPG
I can count at least... two. And it's not the one on your picture.
Nice opinion!

>> No.4815184

>joke of a controller
It's got one major, deep problem, which is the bad lubrication on the stick causing it to wear out and become loose. However, even with a loose stick, you still get a more precise control than on modern sticks. The level of precision this shitty stick is able to achieve is frankly admirable, and kidn of makes up for it becoming loose. There's way to fix it (without changing it to shitty GC sticks, keep the original), or get japanese controllers, which were better built.
>ugliest console design
Opinion, but I think the console itself looks rather classy. I don't like the transparent, colored models though, regular charcoal one is the most elegant.
>There are are literally 10-15 good games on N64.
Literally you never explored the N64 catalogue more than a "top 10" list on some youtuber channel.

I'd say there are a few different categories. For multiplayer fun Mario Kart 64 or Worms Armageddon. For solo fun, Bangai O is fun. For "muh adventure" I'd say Mario 64, Zelda OOT, Conker's, or Banjo. For platforming, probably Goemon. For RPG, Paper Mary-o.

Yeah but how many games did you need as a kid anyway? When you didn't have infinite time to play them between school, and chores, and sports, and work, and music lessons, and outdoor muck arounds with neighbors, and discovering girls, and whatever else you got up to as a 10 yr old it was also the right option to want the 10-15 N64 games that everyone knew were fantastic over the hundreds of playstation ones that were most likely shit. It's not like you had the internet to tell them all apart.

>Majora's Mask
I've tried really hard to understand the appeal to that game but I can't.
The constant under the clock setup is annoying (yes, I know it's not that difficult to deal with and you can even basically nullify it pretty early on with that one song, but I hate being timed).
And after experiencing the magic of stepping up to adult Link in Ocarina of Time going back to a game where you're a child is disappointing (yes, I know you're a child in all the earlier games like Link to the Past, but you don't really notice when it's a 16 bit sprite; on N64 the child character is obnoxious and unheroic).
In general it felt like it lacked all the rewarding moments you got making it through different parts of Ocarina of Time.
It was all just weird side quests without the sense of expansive and purposeful adventuring that made its predecessor so much fun.
You have a clear path ahead of you with OoT, first you find out early on you're needing to assemble those three elemental jewels to stop Ganon, and then you're rewarded with cool as fuck time travel into a dystopian Ganon ruled bad future with a proper adult hero body and gotta start beating more serious versions of the child dungeons in the form of the temples, collecting kickass weapons and magic as you go all culminating with that final raid of the usurped king's castle.
Majora's Mask in contrast is you being a child and having to do errands as quickly as possible with a couple boring pseudo-dungeons until you summon a bunch of retarded giants to keep the moon from falling on you and then you fight some spastic weirdo mask parasite with no backstory and your reward is you can stop being timed and go back to wandering around in the forest to meet someone who's never revealed.
Is liking Majora's Mask just a way people have of trying to react to OoT being so popular and well liked by taking the contrarian point of view that less popular followup was actually better? That's the only way I can rationalize it.

Most people liked Ocarina of Time more than Mario 64.
Mario 64 was a fun novelty getting that full blown 3D experience at the start of the new system's lifecycle, but there wasn't much depth to it compared to OoT.
In fact it's not uncommon to see OoT cited as the greatest or one of the greatest out of games in general, not just N64 games.

Majora’s Mask

>> No.4816409

>You have a clear path ahead of you with OoT,
Exactly. It's all laid out in front of you. Go here, there, kill this, kill that. Like running on a treadmill. Yawn.
To me, that's a massive downside. I prefer the Majora's approach of leaving things as a more esoteric puzzle where's there's a tremendous deal of personal satisfaction to be found from slowly piecing things together for yourself. OoT always billed itself as a game about adventure but where is the adventure in just following directions? Even with its puzzles, they're a few switches in one temple large at most. Meanwhile MM is actually about exploration, and in 4 dimensions at that.

Plus, spending so much time with fleshed out NPC's in Groundhog City makes it feel a lot comfier than Hyrule ever did.
