This is what was wrong: The component cable (The wire that has the red, white, and yellow connectors for audio and video) was completely nonfunctional. When it first came out in 1998, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time seemed like a messenger from the future. Somehow, Nintendo’s prestigious EAD team led by Shigeru Miyamoto had not just created an engaging 3D evolution of the classic Link to the Past -- with its dual time zones and clever puzzle dungeons -- it effectively wrote the book on 3D adventure and exploration games.

Form Factor – Play enhanced Nintendo 64™ games the way they're meant to be played— using a full-size Nintendo 64 style controller! But I was not going to let that stop me from playing classic N64 games on my Switch using the controller they were intended for. Though its unconventional design has long divided opinion, the original controller is for me the only way to play these games. That preference is informed both by '90s kid nostalgia and how unnatural it feels playing these titles on any other controller. In the end we got everything working good, so that is why I give it at most 2 stars, but due to the filth of everything, and the fact that we had to completely rebuild the component wire for it to even work, I cannot give it any higher. It’s telling that one of the main selling points of the upcoming AEW video game is that it will be largely inspired by WWF No Mercy, even going as far as bringing its director, Hideyuki Iwashita, on board for its development. Why? No Mercy represented the pinnacle of an era of wrestling video games. Its simple fighting mechanics made it super easy for even casual wrestling fans to jump in, select their favorite wrestler, and have a great time with minimal onboarding. Perfect Dark, while pushing the machine to its limits, stands upon the shoulders of Goldeneye - it didn't have to break as much new ground as Goldeneye did, and therefore is inferior IMO, but it's still a great game, easily within the Top 10 for the console.

Banjo-Tooie was up against some beloved platformers in our selection process including Conker’s Bad Fur Day and Donkey Kong 64, both from Tooie’s developer, Rare. But Tooie’s platforming, augmented by goofy transformations and endless new moves, was refined compared to DK64, and its explorable areas dwarfed Conker, giving it the edge. - Samuel Claiborn 24.

It would be easy to dismiss 1999’s Beetle Adventure Racing as a cynically-motivated licensed game created only to showcase Volkswagen’s New Beetle, released the previous year. To do so would be to overlook a key moment in the evolution of racing games that has led us to where we are today with the more playful Need for Speed or Forza Horizon games. Invited to Princess Peach's castle, Mario discovers that she has once again been kidnapped by Bowser and his minions. However, something has changed... This time the adventure is in 3D!

How does it compare to the official NSO pad during gameplay?

In 1996 when this console was first released many people had a few reasons not to buy it. The Atari Jaguar was released a couple of years before this and The Jaguar said "64Bit" on the cover. Nobody knew what bits were, but if you had more of them, you were king of the hill. But when I first tore into that box of holy Nintendo 64 goodness and looked at it on Christmas morning, I was astonished. Seeing Mario run around in the castle and jump into paintings was amazing. A 3d game that was good! It was so good that I didn't even touch any of my other gifts that day, I just stayed up playing Mario 64. Despite the controversies, the N64 still managed to support many popular games, giving it a long life run. Nintendo 64 took second place for its generation of consoles while the PlayStation finished first, with 40% and 51% of the market respectively. Much of this success was credited to Nintendo's strong first-party franchises, such as Mario and Zelda, which had strong name brand appeal yet appeared exclusively on Nintendo platforms. The N64 also secured its share of the mature audience thanks to GoldenEye 007, Resident Evil 2, Shadow Man, Doom 64 and Quake II.
