Do you think N64 Games are Overrated?

Yes, they are just ignoring the new ones.
Uhh, maybe...
No, the N64 games are truly better than the NGC ones.

Like most of the other members here I don't see how the 64 games are overrated. They like them more because they have prescious memerioes of that game. I love Tomb Raider and Crash Bandicoot because I had a blast playing them when I was younger. I only started playing the 64 MP games a year or two ago and I love them more because they have better gameplay.

For me it isn't the memory factor, I just think that the N64 ones are better overall (not that the newer ones are bad, they're not I play all of them all the time, except 8) and you can't really just say people like a game only due to a nostalgia factor, I'm sure they play those and say they're good, because they feel they're good, not just because they like the nostalgia feeling it brings.

I give it an 8/10 purely for nostalgia factor. Honestly, I don't remember much about MP1.. haven't played in ages. I remember Mario's Rainbow Castle/Quite a few of the mini-games tho. I loved the one player Koopa shell mini-game/the bicycle Boo mini-game that gave me blisters :P.

People who argue that these old games get praised solely because of nostalgic value are too retarded to come up with a better argument as to why these games are praised as much as they are. They probably are just mere fanboys who do not like the game itself and therefore just say "Nostalgia is evil. It doesn't make a game." just so they think they made a justified argument. It's sad really.

Its not just the critics opinion if you read it he said fans and critics. Even if it is the critics opinion they are right. You cant take a popular series then give it crappy gameplay and expect people to like it. Thats what happens to series that have a numerous amount of games under its belt.


Take the Sonic games for example the older ones were GREAT till up to Sonic 06 where everything crashed down. In most cases the older games are the better ones. Nostalgia may play a role but what we liked from those old games were its gameplay.
Just want to bring up some of these excellent points Plum made. A big reason why I liked the old games such as MP3, was cuz of it's gameplay.

People who argue that these old games get praised solely because of nostalgic value are too retarded to come up with a better argument as to why these games are praised as much as they are.

I just don't understand how people can hate a game just cuz others like it. That is the most farfetch'd feeling I have ever seen. =P

To clear up what you two fighters are saying, is...

@Aegis
Your first post is totally true, I have played many many video games since I was born in 2000, my favourites was the Spyro series and the Crash series. Owning 'Year of the Dragon', Spyro 2, CTR and 'Crash Bash' (with CTR being my favourite game of all time) when I got my PS2 I got 'Enter the Dragonfly' for Spyro and 'Crash, Wrath of Cortex' I was extremely unhappy at the bad results I got.
Now to deal with your second post.
I have played Grand Theft Auto 3 the most and that seems like a very good game. I have a 'friend' that has all the GTA's and he loves each single one. Some of the other games are past my time or I don't like the style of play in them. FF is RPG right? The only RPG I play is Pokemon on me' ol' Gameboy Colour.

@Wiiboy
I have seen alot of your posts and your one of those people that I don't like. I am sorry but the critics are almost always right and so are the fans. We don't need to prove it.

What don't you like about me? The fact that I like most newer Mario games compared to most old ones?

And what are you talking about? Pretty much everything in this thread is opinionated.

Your problem is that you argue things with stupid reasoning. If you just give me an answer other than nostalgia then fine.

And I'd like to hear something from him, thank you.

And um.... I don't see what you're saying. I explained what I didn't like/didn't like/etc about the first ones and the GCN ones.
