The Nintendo 64 is a favorite for a lot of gamers both young and old. Its impressive library boasts some of the greatest video games of all time such as Super Mario 64, Goldeneye 007, Banjo Kazooie, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time and so much more. The Nintendo 64 was a revolutionary console and upon its release, blew the minds of video game fans all around the world.
It was first released in Europe during March of 1997 and I eventually got one on Christmas of that year. It was actually my brothers Christmas gift but I played it so much more than he did that I eventually adopted it as my own. We got 3 games with the console and it was these 3 games that first had me hooked. The first titles we got were Super Mario 64, Diddy Kong Racing and Goldeneye 007. I can still remember when we first played Super Mario 64 and I was in complete awe of the 3D element of the game. It was mind blowing the first time I jumped through the picture frame and landed in Bob-omb Battlefield. I loved everything about the game and I was obsessed.
