People’s value in kids’ groups used to be based on how many people you could have over to play without your parents yelling at you.
There were four controller ports on the N64 for a reason, even though the PS1 had a better disc drive and more games.
It was a favourite of kids, and that’s what Nintendo was going for right from the start.
The N64 Fun Machine is full of games that are played with other people.
With time, the alien-hand controller went from being a nuisance to being a unique feature. When we played games with our friends and family on the N64, any doubts we might have had about the console were replaced by happy memories.
People who grew up with the N64 and miss it a lot made a list of the best multiplayer games. Take a look at this and see if you recognise any of your favourite things from the past.
Who knows? During the next time you visit grandma, maybe you’ll find your old N64 and you can try out my tastes.
Because the Fun Machine had a three-pronged controller, it wasn’t the only thing about it that was “unique.”
A lot of people tried new things as the industry moved into 3D, and some of them were just weird.
There are many different names for this type of place.
In this game, you play Tetris by placing bricks on a round surface. Get it now? I don’t, either!
I think it’s kind of like Tetris on psychedelics.
It’s still a great game with a great soundtrack, though.
2. Bomberman 64
It was easier for Bomberman to get started on the three-dimensional plane than it was for him to get started on the flat surface.
Because the graphics kept the personality of Bomberman, but also made the game look great and new at the same time, they were just right.
Now, it wasn’t just the graphics that became 3D. It was also the music. That’s not the only thing that makes this game fun:
Being able to throw bombs at your friends in a different direction was a game changer. The game became more about quick reactions and less about setting traps that were impossible to get out of.
After a few rounds of Bomberman, the multiplayer was a great way to ease tensions. You and your friends could work together to fight the AI, which is a great way to do this.
3. Turok 2
I didn’t know much about the Turok games except that they took place in the past and there were dinosaurs to kill.
Then again, do you really need to know more?
When it comes to weird and fun things, I know that controlling a velociraptor in a 4-man arena against your friends is one of the best things ever.
Your little dinosaur hands might get in the way.
Even though this game has some frame rate issues from time to time, it’s still a big improvement over the first Turok. There’s also a lot less fog this time around.
4. International Superstar Soccer ‘98
When I was a kid, there were no “hyper-realistic” FIFA games that looked like real players and teams from other countries.
I mean, there were some FIFA games. They didn’t do very well.
So when it came time to play games with your friends who didn’t know the difference between an RPG and a platformer, International Superstar Soccer ’98 was your best choice.
It even has Carlos Valderrama on the cover, which means it must be a good book!
Well, it turns out that it is good.
The controls are easy to use, the graphics are pretty, and there are a lot of different modes to keep you happy.
if you get tired of traditional vs. open games, you can even team up with your friends and play through the whole championship with them.
5. Mario Golf
As for me, I hate sports games until they have a thick layer of “video game-y” paint on top. If you’re like me, you should play Mario Golf instead.
It’s very easy.
The cute and colourful residents of the Mushroom Kingdom play a very fun, if a little unrealistic, version of golf with special power-up shots and Mario-themed courses.
When you play games with your friends, you don’t even need more than one controller.
Pass one back and forth!
6. South Park
This is 1998. At this point, South Park is the most popular show in the history of the show.
People who like N64 games will like this one, too. Right?
To make a South Park-themed shooting game with Turok 2’s engine, we need to change it.
People were shocked by the outcome.
When it comes to shooting games, this one is one of the weirdest and most absurd ones out there. You can use anything from snow balls to alien probes as weapons to kill kids in this game.
It might not be the best thing ever. That doesn’t sound right.
But it was so much fun.
Some of the funny parts aren’t as strong now that being obscene is common, so I thought about moving it up a notch or two.
7. Conker’s Bad Fur Day
You can play a lot of different game modes in Conker’s Bad Fur Day. Some of them are really unique and interesting. There are a lot of different things you can do, like compete in a heist or fight dinosaurs like cavemen.
When it comes to our best N64 multiplayer games, it would be a lot higher up. But the frame rate makes it a lot worse. It slows down a lot when there are four people playing at the same time, making it hard to play.
8. Wave Race 64
Wave Race 64 is a technical masterpiece that has great water physics. This is even more exciting when you have to fight the waves as well.
We just wish it could play with four people instead of two.
9. Army Men: Air Combat
It’s a simple shoot ’em up, but the multiplayer in Army Men: Air Combat has a lot of interesting options.
These include competing to kill as many AI bugs as possible or to save more scientists than the other people. Besides, you can still blow each other up if you want to.1.
