Outside of kiddy platformers, generic racing/sports titles and laggy FPS's, there isn't much else to play on it. I don't understand how anyone that's not a diehard Nintendo fan can love it.

Tigger’s Honey Hunt and Mr. Bones were the biggest reasons I couldn’t decide between the N64 and Saturn.

OP, it’s got a small library but what it does have is really good. Mario 64, Banjo, the two Zeldas it has and Perfect Dark are widely seen as some of the greatest games of all time, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Despite it’s smaller library it still has some hidden gems, too - like Chameleon Twist and Space Station Sillicon Valley. There’s a great number of other classics both well known and obscure I didn’t even get to.

The Playstation is a great system. I get why it’s seen as superior to the N64, and I don’t even disagree. But the N64 is still a badass system in it’s own right, and as much as they try to rewrite history Sony fanboys will never be able to deny that.

Seethe and cope. Thank you for your time.

>> No.6655485

Not even close. Consoles like the 3DO exist.
And the N64 does have more than people give it credit for. Pretty slim pickings compared to a lot of consoles, sure, but people will frequently repeat the meme that all it had was Mario, Zelda, and Goldeneye, because they would rather bazinga on the console, than actually try exploring it's library at all, which is sad.

Yeah, it was more of a blockbuster game console. You got it for the big games but not much else.

Sure, but I actually prefer to play SotE on N64. I don't mind the lower framerate (that the game was designed in mind with), but probably my main reason for preferring to emulate the N64 one instead of playing PC SotE is because of these sweet oldschool LucasArts sprite-based cutscenes. The CGI ones made for the PC are goofy as fuck and look really jarring. Someone was saying that they tried to add the N64 cutscenes to the PC version but seems like it's not an easy task.
>And the N64 does have more than people give it credit for
For sure. It obviously has less games than PS1 or even Saturn, but people who want to have a hateboner for it sure go out of their way to ignore a lot of games.
In a way, it's better for the people who want to collect it, I guess. If more people were into it, the market for the N64 would be even more expensive than it already is.

>> No.6655815

That's not exactly untrue for the N64 at the time either, it had a pretty widespread library of multiplats. Especially as time went on many of its games left the console.

>> No.6656380

Pretty much quality over quantity on the system. It doesn't have anywhere near the amount of games as the PS1 but it does have some of the best games of that generation and at the time it had GOAT multi-player games like golden eye, smash bros and Mario kart.

>> No.6656473

agreed. sony and sega fanboys love to omit that people actually played the N64 with their friends. 2 to 4 player couch co-op was king back then. another complaint was that the n64 hardly had any games. which is untrue, it had 2 to 3 good games per year even if they were mostly first party. people only bought that many games per year anyway, usually parents buying their kids birthday and christmas presents

10 games were a lot back then, more than what most people had. cartridge games were super expensive, don't forget to account for inflation. i just used an inflation calculator to adjust $60 in 1990 dollars to $118 in 2020 dollars. honestly most people i knew had 3 to 6 games MAX. many only had 1 or 2 games, and relied on borrowing, trading, and renting games.

I owned an N64 first out of a Nintendo habit due to the SNES being amazing, but I had to get a PS1 because I was missing out on the best games that gen, which were the survival horror games on PS1, like Parasite Eve, Dino Crisis, Fear Effect, Silent Hill, Resident Evil 1 and 3 (RE2's N64 port is ironically the game that got me to switch)

I also missed out on the shitty early PS1 JRPGs (FF7 for example, that game is fucking ugly, fuck nostalgiafags) and got the best ones like FF9 and Chrono Cross

Sure, the N64 did get great games like Perfect Dark - but you know how long we had to wait to get it while the PS1 kept getting great games on a near monthly basis?

Heh. Yeah the framerate is also worse, but again, it's not like the PS1 version is some 60fps buttery smoothery.
Also, here's an interesting thing about the localized version. On PS1, they censored the catgirl erotic book, and made it a super hero comic instead. Catgirl is still on the US MM64.

Yeah, it doesn't really hurt the slightly lower framerate on N64 either. Having consistent, non-wobbly graphics and no loading times is kind of a good trade-off. Capcom still did a lazy job on the port, though. Same with the PC port (which is the best version, but still flawed).
>I do enjoy those games. Where's your god now?
If you actually played these games, then good job, at least you aren't as braindead as you seem. Still you reek of obsession though. N64 for free, inside of you.
>that pic
It's been speculated that Square only had access to early N64 devkits. There's no way that FF7's simple models couldn't be done on the N64. On the other hand, models like the ones found on Evangelion for N64 would probably not work on PS1.

>> No.6657851

I was a PC gamer at that time so everything was fair game for me, it was fun. PS3 has unfortunately gotten slighted and a lot of great games get pushed to the wayside. It's a shame.

>no loading times is kind of a good trade-off
Gonna be honest, I don't really remember load times really being a thing on the PS1. Transitions from area to area are basically the same length of time as on the N64, just a fade out, fade in.
>If you actually played these games, then good job
Of course, if you think I haven't you haven't been paying attention. I do own an everdrive 64 after all.
>There's no way that FF7's simple models couldn't be done on the N64
I don't think they could have FF7's battle models are really high poly, and they lack distortion on the PS1 because they aren't textured polys. All those polygons on the N64 however would need aggressive z-buffering and it would likely have dropped the console to its knees. The systems strengths aren't in polycount.

Maybe you could push more polys if you just had a simple scene like FF games had.

Also the polygons on N64 are much more accurate, that requires extra processing power. Polygons on PSX shimmer and bend, the textures warp and are unfiltered. That's why it can use more small polygons on models, because the errors are less noticeable, but it has a hard time rendering full 3D worlds where these issues are much more apparent.

I had PS1 and N64.

PS1 was full of games, but you had to sieve through a lot of garbage.
N64 had very few games, but they were proportionally higher quality/fun.
Also the fact that they were harder to pirate made it so people were more careful with their purchases, meaning most games, even the bad ones, were at least playable.

I probably spent more time playing the PS1, but going through +100 games instead of the ~25 N64 ones (I owned 11, then rented some).

Wrong. It's more apparent with textured polygons because the textures give it away immediately but the untextured polys are also low precision, bend when moving, and lack z buffer.

The location of the polygons is literally approximated instead of calculated causing warping, also it completely lacks z buffer to sort what is ahead and what is behind. As I said, texture is just the more obvious aspect of the imprecision. You normally don't see that because developers usually used very small untextured polygons on models. They didn't want their games to look like Virtua Fighter 1, also it's kind of ugly when mixed with the realism they aimed for as aesthetic choice in that generation.
