Friday Favorites: N64 Games I Wish I Played

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Friday everyone!

The Nintendo 64 was a highlight of my early gaming years, but thinking back on it… I didn’t play too many Nintendo 64 games. Rather, the GameCube is our largest collection of physical games. This week’s Friday Favorites is dedicated to the Nintendo 64 games I wish I had tried as a kid.

Harvest Moon 64

I didn’t get into the Harvest Moon franchise until an old friend gifted me with Friends of Mineral Town for my birthday one year. I wonder how I would feel about the franchise had I started with Harvest Moon 64, a game that I’ve heard is a favorite in the community.

Star Fox 64

My first introduction to Fox McCloud was in Super Smash Bros. I had no idea who he was and, even then, I didn’t really think to look up any other N64 games that he could have been in. After Smash Bros., my first taste of Star Fox was Star Fox Adventures for the GameCube which, apparently, is a bit of a departure from the normal formula of a Star Fox game. It would have been great to give the N64 Star Fox a try!

Donkey Kong 64

Technically, I believe we have this game cartridge, although I’m fairly certain we “borrowed” it from family or a family friend and never returned it. I don’t remember playing much of this game, just a few levels here and there while at another’s house, but the idea of the game intrigued me. That, and the theme song was just so damn catchy.

Any Nintendo 64 games you wish you had gotten the chance to try? Are you amused like I am that these games all have 64 in the title? Let me know in the comments below! If you liked this post, please share it around.

  1. Oh man, I have several! lol I own Star Fox and DK 64, but I haven’t had much chance to play them since my 64 started having issues. I’ve also always wanted to play Paper Mario and Conker’s Bad Fur Day πŸ˜›
