N64 had great single-player adventures in games like Super Mario 64, both Zelda games, the Banjo series, and many more. What did you love or hate about them that I missed? But personally I prefer N64. Which in turn should mean that the Playstation cache is a true associative cache, while the N64 has either what could also be described as a scratchpad or a simple directly mapped cache. I kinda touched on it on the polygon shading, but yes I guess I could have made a bigger point of it. So, call me wishy-washy, but I think theyre equal.
These are just opinions, let's not get hostile in here. Seems like bickering just for the sake of it. Some games look alright, some look weirdly angular and some barely look like what they're supposed to. Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mark, Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, Star Fox 64, Star Wars Shadows of the Empire, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark. Things like Crash Team Racing really don't hold up these days lol. The Genres The N64 often seemed limited in this area. N64 produced a series of truly superb unforgettable classics, particularly the output of rare and Nintendo.
Perfect dark was only a 32mb cart. The only difference is that N64's effects like mip mapping ate it up leaving little space for hi-res textures which were aditionally limited by the tight cartridges. I loved the X Games games and road rash! They even made 2 movies that were amazing o. Visuals help with understanding visuals. And the ending still almost brings me to tears. Frankly, if a game has long load times, maybe it's the game rather than the storage format. Nintendo claimed it needed more time for Nintendo 64 software to mature, and for third-party developers to produce games.
I doubt that I have to remind you upstanding gentlemen, but just for fun let me reiterate. Sorry, guys, the library is just undeniably much stronger. Simply put - nobody does quality better than Nintendo. I always want to know more specifics about 5th gen hardware. I'd pick blurry textures over pixelated ones, though.
But as the old cartridge-based consoles age, they seem to stop working. The N64 could have high texel destiny, as evidenced by some games, it was just the same small 32x32 or 64x64 that was tiled extensively. Hmm, I'll go for the PlayStation 1. All of those are super high quality, mostly still playable games and the sheer variety really does make the N64 a champion. Scoob64 if controllers meant something then many games would not have been made for the Dreamcast, which had less buttons then older systems, and was just plain bad for fighting games, and yet , there are truckloads of fighting games on the system. Specifically what could be or is the highest level possible of a fully 3-D realistic looking world, that could be created on each of those platforms.
Let's see better fighting games, better accessories, and my favorite more mature games. This week's topic is: The Nintendo 64 vs the Playstation 1 Do I even need to write anything this time? Loved Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask and Goldeneye 007. The effect of the moving tentacles or stems is almost hypnotic. Besides, nearly half of N64's game selection is Nintendo license things. Where else does the Playstation succeed? That is very unlike Ocarina of Time, which allowed you to traverse Hyrule field without loading screens.
And then there is the stage map. Developers were still trying to figure out how to develop games in 3D, and the results were mixed. I like the N64 controller, despite it's lack of simplicity. It's sturdier and the games are nearly impossible to destroy. I think Tony Hawk 3 was one of the last games that came out for 64. N64 has a library that has aged better and can still be played or accessed Zelda titles always in fashion and thus has become the better long term item.
If I were to take the top 20 or 30 games from each console then the battleground becomes more even. I would have wished for more parallax scrolling and some polygonal effects, but there's no denying that this is a fine-looking game. Superman 64 being in the 64's library shouldn't be a point against it. Let's see better fighting games, better accessories, and my favorite more mature games. Theyre like salt and pepper. What's better than a squirrel cursing and blubbing at a Gargoyle? Objectively speaking, they were about even.
Even the Game Cube hasnt caught on as well as expected. For me, it's about which console left a better retro gaming legacy. I'll think of some more in a sec. I don't think gaming would be the same for me if it wasn't for Gran Turismo, X-men vs. I have about six games for the N64 out of the total 10 games that are actually good on the system. Audio, on the other hand, should be better on the PlayStation due to using cd-based games.
Hopefully, it'll stay ahead, just so Gates doesnt control yet another area of the tech industry. In the hall leading to the first bowser level, there is a painting in the distance of peach but as you get closer it changes to bowser. Goldeneye, for example, was a great game, but it was odd that no one ever spoke throughout the whole game. I always disliked the blurry look of N64 games. That makes it harder to trust sellers and you can't even go by feedback percentage sometimes because usually they work it out with the person so negative feedback isn't left.
