    Figured I would start a catchall thread for anyone wanting to talk about old games.

    I just got my 3 year old into sports games via Wayne Gretzky 3D Hockey. It's perfect for him and he was able to score goals in no time. I may let him run around with Mario 64. I'm not motivated to go buy more N64 stuff...heading to a local retro store. May even get a couple more controllers. I really miss the simplicity of picking up and playing these older consoles.

    Speaking of which, this can also be a good place to discuss the recent Nintendo Gigaleak where someone leaked codes from old and unreleased games...including Luigi code in Mario 64.

    Is it arguable that N64 is the most timeless video game console ever? Just playing these games I still have and they are still legit fun...and not just for nostalgia reasons. When playing NES or SNES or Genesis...those feel more fun for nostalgia reasons but N64 barely feels dated to me if even at all. Because Nintendo has always leveraged a less 'lifelike' art style, the N64 just feels still like anything they could have released at any time.

    Obviously "sim" sports games aside - but so much of the library holds up over time.

    I've been playing a decent amount of Wave Race and NFL Blitz lately. Both held up extremely well.

    SNES was probably a bigger influence on my gaming upbringing but i can't bring myself to play the games now longer than 10 minutes before the nostalgia kinda wears off. Unless it's something that is just classic like mortal Kombat II.

    N64 Games are still just as fun.

    Wave Race is still a great, great game. Water physics still impressive.

    N64 has a great core of games but not overly deep and the controller needed a few more iterations
