Why You Should Still Buy An N64

Subscribe: bit.ly/Sub_to_TheGamer
Oh, the Nintendo 64. It’s the console I probably have the fondest memories of since it was the first home console I’ve ever played. I remember getting up at 8am, having breakfast and then gaming until supper time, or until my parents literally forced me to stop playing. Those were the good ol’ days where I didn’t have a care in the world. Now, I have to worry about adult stuff like mortgage payments and going to work. It makes me wish I could go back in time to when all I had to worry about was how much time I’d be able to spend gaming each day.
If you’re like me and reminiscing about the Nintendo 64, then maybe you’re considering actually buying the console. I still own my N64, but if you want one, go get one! You definitely won’t regret it. For starters, it’s not very expensive to get a grey N64. If you want a special edition N64, like the blue and yellow Pikachu edition, then you’re going to need to shell out a bit more money, but you’ve got a collector’s item at that point. The games are the biggest selling point of the console since almost every single one of them is great.
There’s more reasons than just those to get a Nintendo 64 so enjoy the video, let me know whether or not you’re thinking of buying an N64 in 2021 in the comments section below and don’t forget to subscribe to TheGamer for more gaming tech content.

    I still own my old 64 and still use it. The games never get old. But why don’t you just use a Emulator? Have all the games in there with no memory card necessary?? You can make games higher quality by editing settings.

    I am not going to let The Gamer keep the fact that there is no N64 on Nintendo Switch Online for Switch! I say that because most other Nintendo fans are voting that N64 is coming to Nintendo Switch Online after Mar. 31, 2021. And others (like me Jacob Chang) believe that N64 (along with Gamecube and Wii) may not be treated the same way as NES and Super Nintendo after Mar. 31. So you should vote too whether it's one of those two ideas.

Some others (like me Jacob Chang) still believe that after Mar. 31, N64 (along with Gamecube and Wii) may be released on Nintendo Switch All Star compilation games rather than Nintendo Switch Online. So we do not know yet after Mar. 31. But N64 is going to be on the Switch EVENTUALLY.

    At 4:11, no N64 on Nintendo Switch Online? Well, for the Switch, Nintendo (after Mar. 31, 2021) may not treat N64 (along with Gamecube and Wii) the same way as NES and Super Nintendo. N64 (along with Gamecube and Wii) may only come to the Switch if it's on Nintendo Switch All Star compilation games (like Super Mario 3-D All Stars). That's the only way we might get N64, Gamecube, and Wii games after Mar. 31, 2021. After all I have seen a UZtop video that has that. Super Smash Bros All Stars should be a Nintendo Switch All Star compilation game (well, one of the compilations). And it should have the first three games in the Super Smash Bros series (Super Smash Bros, Super Smash Bros MELEE, and Super Smash Bros BRAWL). So if you want to still get Super Smash Bros N64, buy that compilation game. Nintendo is treating N64, Gamecube, and Wii by Nintendo Switch All Star compilation games after Mar. 31, 2021, not Nintendo Switch Online.

    But emulation can provide better resolution as well as better frame rate and the reasons that were provided only apply to lower-end PCs. On top of that emulation is perfectly legal as proven in the case of Sony v. Connectix (however make sure to acquire ROMs legally).

    I'm currently eyeing a used N64 at a local retro games shop here in SC. It's about $100.00. I've already purchased a copy of Nightmare Creatures to play and copies of Golden Eye and others will follow in time. It will be a part of my Retro Set-Up that includes an Atari 2600 Vader Edition, my original Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Dreamcast, and Nintendo Wii. I never owned an N64 when they came out, but I played them a bit, along with the GameCube, at friend's houses. I'm looking forward to adding it to the collection.

      Also, check locally for retro or second-hand gaming shops. I'm lucky that I have two of them within a twenty-minute drive in the Midlands of SC. The lowest price I've seen has been about $65.00 for a "good" console (Good = some scratches, discoloration, and aesthetic issues that don't affect functionality.) and $100.00 for a "very good" to "excellent" console. And those grades (if you want to call them that) are only missing the original box but look like they've been well maintained.

    Your point about emulation being "illegal" is technically incorrect, although practically correct. Emulators are not illegal, and you're making the stretch of the idea that the only method of creating emulation is pirating games. Dumping games in a legal matter is totally possible, and it's up to the gamers to source ROMs in a legal matter (and not pirate). Most people will pirate games, correct, but that does not mean emulation is illegal. If emulation was illegal, it wouldn't be as prevalent online as it is today.

      Exactly and it can also be a gray way to experience your old games in an internal higher resolution or, in the case of Mario 64, stick to a 30fps cap in the largest levels, where the N64 would drop frames

      Try local retro/second-hand video game shops if they're around. There are online retailers as well; but be certain to check their reviews first. Just know that you'll have to play with adaptability in regard to modern televisions. Analog-HDMI switches will come in to play. But they're fairly cheap on Amazon.

      But lots of Nintendo fans have been voting that N64 is coming to Nintendo Switch Online after Mar. 31, 2021. It is either that there is going to be none OR Nintendo (after Mar. 31, 2021) is not going to treat N64 (along with Gamecube and Wii) on the Switch the same way as they did for both NES and Super Nintendo. They may be released on Nintendo Switch All Star compilation games instead. We may still hope that N64 comes to Nintendo Switch Online. But it may be released on other Nintendo Switch All Star compilation games (after Super Mario 3-D All Stars).

      Well, while an emulator itself is legal to own, downloading roms of commercial games that aren't put out by the original developers isn't, so you would either have to buy a cartridge dumper, which could be expensive, and get the roms from the original cartridges, or only play rom hacks which, to the best of my knowledge, are legal to download. That is if you actually care about legality.
