Whether you loved it for your first glimpses at 3D gaming in "Super Mario 64" or your first experience with four-player competitive gaming in "GoldenEye 007," almost everyone has a fond memory of playing this iconic console.
Here are the top 20 games that graced the Nintendo 64:
"Pilotwings 64" was a surprisingly robust flight simulator that re-defined the way we thought about navigating 3D space in a video game.

19. "Blast Corps"
"Blast Corps" is a Nintendo 64 classic developed by game developer "Rare" in the late '90s. This action-puzzle game gave you control over a wide variety of vehicles, allowing you to dramatically crash through buildings, bridging gaps, and wreaking havoc.
Whether or not you hate its twangy country music-inspired soundtrack, "Blast Corps" stands as one of the best Nintendo 64 games ever.
Release date:March 24, 1997
18. "Jet Force Gemini"
"Jet Force Gemini" was one of the pioneers of the third-person shooter genre, and for its time, it's really quite impressive! This stylish sci-fi game developed by Rare looks chunky and silly, but the sound of bullets whizzing by as you run-and-gun still sound incredible.
