SO MUCH Banjo-Kazooie/Tooie, because my father introduced me to it, and it's wonderful. Mario Kart/Diddy Kong Racing, because I could play it with my family. Star Wars: Rogue Squadron/Star Fox 64, because my brother loved it.
So really, I played what I played because other people would play it with me. (:
Banjo-Kazooie/Tooie... that was the best -sob- Mario 64 definitely Rocket: Robot on Wheels (I don't remember a whole lot about this one so we rebought it like a year ago... it's so creepy bwahaha) Conker's Bad Fur Day Donkey Kong 64 Pokemon Stadium 1 / 2 Pokemon Snap Diddy Kong Racing
I don't remember much else..
EDIT: OH YEAH, and Ocarina of Time/Majoras Mask. We lived off of that o.o
I played Mario Kart 64 the most by far, with family members... Good times.
Old favs include Super Mario 64 The Banjo-Kazooie games Kirby 64 Shadowgate 64 Diddy Kong Racing Donkey Kong 64 The Mario Party games Goldeneye Perfect Dark Conker's Bad Fur Day Paper Mario Zelda Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask

-Super Mario 64: I was little and Mario's voice was very funny at that time. Mario Party 3: Fun game to play with my family and friends. Mario Kart 64- Same thing. Star Fox 64: Really fun to play and to watch my brother collect all the medals. I can't remember if he unlocked expert mode or not... -The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask: DO I NEED TO EXPLAIN THIS ONE?

~ Mario Kart 64 ~ Namco Museum ~ Pokemon Snap ~ Rugrats Scavenger Hunt ~ Super Mario 64 ~ Super Smash Bros. ~ Wave Race 64, I used to play it all the time with my mom. ~ Yoshi Story
My favorite of all of those would have to be Yoshi Story. I didn't get Pokemon Snap, Rugrats, and SSB until a couple years ago for myself even though I played them all the time when I was younger at cousins' houses or neighbors' houses. I definitely played Yoshi the most.

Of course I really love classics like Banjo-Kazooie, GoldenEye, Majora's Mask, and Wave Race, but I'd rather list some more underrated N64 titles. - Forsaken 64 - San Francisco Rush 2049 - Blast C.O.R.P.S. (kind of a stretch, as more people know about it, but it never makes any lists) - Battle Tanx/Battle Tanx: Global Assault - Hybrid Heaven - Body Harvest - Extreme-G Also, Resident Evil 2 is incredible on N64 (probably the best version), and Pokémon Stadium is one of the best multiplayer experiences ever.
Bad Fur Day was my favorite game but I used to looove watching my little sister play Hey You, Pikachu. OMG it was sooo cute. She is 10 years younger than me and it was hilarious watching her scream into the microphone. I also loved Jet Force Gemini, Zelda, Pokemon Puzzle League, and most of the Mario games.
The Nintendo 64 and the SNES were my favourite consoles and represent a huge part of my (happy) infancy. I still consider many N64 games the best on their respective series, which was an impressive feat, considering this was the first time classic 2D games were being adapted to 3D and their technology was very limited at the time.
My favourite N64 games are Mario 64 and Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
I still remember the feeling of amazement and wonder when the console was about to be released because of the promise of a fully 3D Mario game. I also remember the night when I bought the console with money I had saved for months and was mesmerised from how good Mario 64 was. I fell asleep holding the controller. I still consider it the best 3D Mario game ever. As I grow older, and less easily impressed by today's videogames, I often think to myself I don't want to die without playing a remake of the game. If Nintendo released an updated Mario 64 with the quality of the Wind Waker remake, I would never feel the need to play a new videogame again.
Ocarina of Time had a similar impact in my life. Although there have been many excellent Zelda games, OoT is still my favourite mostly due to its story. If one narrative had to be picked to represent Link and his adventures, I feel this is the most complete one. It's just a beautiful game in the literal sense of the word. I think it was released near Christmas back where I lived and I spent the holidays playing it. This had a deep impact in me and I now associate it with that time of the year. When the excellent 3DS remake was released, I made the point to buy the console just to replay it, and I now play a Zelda game every Christmas.
Mario Kart 64 was probably the game I played the most, specially the multiplayer, and still is my favourite Mario Kart ever (although 8 is pretty great too). The battle mode is something that has never been equaled.
Smash Bros was also a gem that came out of nowhere. I'm so used to the series now that I take it for the granted, but a videogame that brought together characters and worlds from different games was so unbelieveble at the time that I was always in awe of this fact when playing it. The ad with Mario, Yoshi, Donkey Kong and Pikachu walking in a park and starting to beat themselves up was legendary.
Mario Party was probably the game I played the most with 4 other people at parties, simply because it was pretty much self-explanatory; every one could pick it up and learn it in minutes. I loathe the series now. I bought the 3DS one and rarely played it. The boards aren't even boards anymore, which was part of the charm of the original game.
Other games that I enjoyed greatly were: Goldeneye, Diddy Kong Racing (another gem, arguably better than Mario Kart), Banjo Kazooie, Donkey Kong 64 (really don't understand why some people don't like it, I thought it was a great platformer), Wave Race, F-Zero X, Star Fox 64, Mario Golf, Mario Tennis, Jet Force Gemini, Beetle Adventure Racing (did anyone honestly expect this game to have been that good?!), Top Gear Rally, Pilotwings, Fighter's Destiny, Turok and more that I'm sure I'm forgetting!
Finally, my heartbreaker: Majora's Mask. I bought the game and loved the little that I played of it. I lent it to a friend who promissed to tive it back quickly and he lent me Jet Force Gemini. For some reason, we never undid the exchange and I never finished Majora's Mask, which broke my heart. I was crossing my fingers for a 3DS remake since 2012 and was over the moon when they announced it! Naturally, I waited until Christmas to play it, and I'm still finishing it, actually
All in all, I've been playing videogames since the ZX Spectrum days and I don't think there has been a console with so many games that I loved as the N64.
Feel free to follow me; I always follow back!
My favorites were Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart 64, Super Mario 64, Pokemon Stadium 1 & 2, WWF No Mercy, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Banjo Kazooie, Banjo Tooie, Wave Race, and Diddy Kong Racing
It is okay to not be okay. Mental health is vital!
PT me if you need oranges, apples, or pears.
I legit just unpacked my N64 after 4 years in storage! I'm scared to plug it in and turn it on...what if it doesn't work?! My console and two controllers were the wedding present from my brother, along with The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I played that the most, by far. Majora's Mask and Super Mario 64 would be tied for a close second, as I was obsessed with unlocking everything in those games.

The moon in 'Majora's Mask' gave me nightmares. That and the creepy mask salesman. I haven't played the game since...well technically I didn't play it in the first place as I only was allowed to watch my brother play it haha.
*Bear hugs Devin2600* To my friends on here
that have shown me so much love and kindness over the years, I thank you.
We never owned an N64 because my parents told us we could either get a Play Station or N64, and the PS being totally new, we chose that. We did have tons of fun with the PS, and we knew people who had N64s, so we did play a lot of Smash Bros. and Mario Kart. I was heart-broken I couldn't play Zelda (just watch), but we later got a GameCube Zelda bundle.
pedro_collins: I don't think you ever get over the Moon or Happy Mask Salesman. If you can't play the original, go for the 3DS remake.
