There is some Nintendo 64 games that are old and good in 1999. Back in the 90s, I brought a Nintendo 64 with iconic game Super Mario 64. N64 was very popular and had a small library of games. There are Nintendo 64 games that driving, fighting and rpg. Maybe horror and shooting falls in that category. Some are worth a lot of money and rare in most cases. Back to my story, after having a playthrough with Super Mario 64 it transcends. There was Pokemon Stadium and Super Smash Bros 64, which is fun games in my opinion. Remember going to blockbuster (before closure), looking at a category of Nintendo games. Some games were bad picks on my part. There were a lot games that I wanted to play. I picked up some wresting games like WCW/NWO Revenge and War Gods.
There were fond memories of playing these games. War Gods was a Mortal Kombat knock-off and remember playing with my friends with Revenge. Speaking of Mortal Kombat, I rented 4 and it nowhere good as last installment. 3D plane I was not used to and continue with Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance. In this blogpost, I will share some games that been playing while growing up. Thanks to N64 emulators and Virtual Console, we get to relive our childhoods. This is not a top 5 post but listing games that dear to me. I think these games deserve to be played and still good. They may not please everyone but I should had fun with them. Let’s get right into the list of old and good games in 1999.
6. Turok 3 Shadow of Oblivion – Acclaim Studios and Entertainment
Turok 3 Shadow of Oblivion is the sequel to Seed of Evil. Instead of playing as Joshua Fireseed, you control his children Danielle and Joseph. The plot is Joshua is attack my Oblivion henchmen and sacrifice himself to save his children. Joshua’s ally Adon help Danielle and Joseph to defeat Oblivion. Turok 3 plays just like the pervious games. Danielle and Joseph have special abilities like nigh vision and higher jump. There is array of weapons like rocket launcher, shotgun and more. After exploring single player campaign and destroying Oblivion. There is local multiplayer no online, with game types like capture the flag and monkey tag. I had memories playing deathmatch on Turok such allows bots. Didn’t have any friends to play with. Turok 3 Shadow of Oblivion is a good addition to Turok series. The game is available on Amazon.
5. Sin and Punishment – Treasure and Nintendo
Sin and Punishment is a rail shooter that I only played on emulators. The plot is a group called Armed Volunteers battling creatures called Ruffians. Another group formed by Achi along with two protagonist Airan and Saki get between the war. Will our heroes stop these war? Sin and Punishment is a very hard game with you shoot and use melee attacks. You can lock on to enemies and dodge attacks. The game is very simple and easy to play. A second player can help with firing while another move. Although, Sin and Pushiment didn’t come to the US. I glad to play this game and it have a cult following. It spawned a sequel called Sin and Punishment Star Successor on Nintendo Wii. The soundtrack is amazing and in-game cutscenes. If you want to buy Sin and Punishment, find it at Virtual Console or Amazon.
4. Rampage 2: Universal Tour – Avalanche Software
Rampage 2: Universal Tour is a very obscure game where you plays giant monsters. The most satisfying trait is eating people and destroying buildings. Overall plot of Rampage is freeing other monsters like George, Lizzie and Ralph. Stop aliens from conquering the earth and save the planet. You travel all over the world and cause mayhem. There is multiplayer games as well. I remember renting this game and having a blast. There is a 2018 movie with Dwayne Johnson but I wouldn’t watch it. Picking up items like power ups and health was fun. If you give it a chance, buy it on Amazon along with other series. Do you want to take control of a giant gorilla or rat?
3. Bio F.R.E.A.K.S – Saffire Corporation
Bio F.R.E.A.K.S. is a over the top limb slashing fighting game. This game is inspired by Mortal Kombat and Time Killers. The one thing about this game, it has a cheap and unbeatable final boss. Story of this game underground tournament formed by a secret organization SGC. Which decide on the control of all Neo- Amerika. Each organization have Bio F.R.E.A.K.S (Flying Robotic Enhanced Armored Killing Synthoids act as champions. Bio F.RE.A.K.S. had some mechanics such as 3D arena which you can move around. It kind of reminds me of little Power Stone-ish. There are eight characters to choose from with moveset. Removing limbs was a first for me while growing up. Bio F.R.E.A.K.S had interesting characters and playstyle. If you want to buy the game, find it on Nintendo 64, PC and PlayStation.
2. Fighters Destiny – Genki
Fighters Destiny is a score based fighting game that never seen before. Some people think it’s unoriginal but point system stands out. There is not plot or story in Fighters Destiny. You pick a character with different fighting styles and win. The score system is based on throws, ring outs and instant ko attacks. There are training to home your skills and board game for challenges. Fighters Destiny is very unique fighter in my opinion. You can counter throws and attacks. If the timer runs out, judges will decide the winner. I wish more fighting games are like this one. Fighters Destiny is available on Nintendo 64. There is a sequel as well.
1. Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon – Konami
Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon is a adventure game and apart of Ganbare Goemon series. I never know about Ganbare Goemon while growing up. The introduction got me hook in to the game. Mystical Ninja is one of those Nintendo 64 games that’s look down. Players can switch characters and pilot a mech called Impact. The game is very humorous and silly in its own way. Story is about a organization called Peach Mountain Shoguns who want to transform Japan into a stage for their talent. Let that sink in for a second. Mystical Ninja have a charm with you can buy items and humor. I had memories singing the song while in Japanese. Love the impact introduction while preparing for battle. Play the game and you will not regret it or buy it.
