PilotWings was the best N64 game.
I would have been top 10 on the SNES for me. I set it up on RetroPie a few years back and didn't last 5 minutes, it has NOT aged well.
2) God of War. Just never got around to it.
I'm just coming to the end of my first (of a few I suspect) playthrough. I'd highly recommend it. At first, I found the semi-linear, not very open world a bit hard to get used to, but once I did loved it. The problem-solving element seemed like a blast from the past for me, maybe there are other current games like this, but I haven't run into one since I re-nerded during the pandemic.
4) Witcher 3 remaster. Sunk 100's of hours into it before. Not sure I can handle the same again. Still my fave game.
I'd forgotten I'd downloaded it, I don't think I even bothered loading it when I heard about all the problems on PC. I know what you mean about the same again, I'm a completionist and did every last thing on the map last time, I know I'll feel compelled to do it again, but will hate myself if I do. I've always had it in mind to 100% the achievements, so at some point, I'm going to have to Death March it. Can't get too excited about the prospect though.
Gonna give Goldeneye a go later but never had an N64 as a nipper so I've never really been into it - as above: it's aged awfully. Some games really hold up over time, even FPS games, but Goldeneye is driven purely by nostalgia
Agreed. My theory is that it was pretty much the first console FPS and certainly the first big release, so it got attention from lots of gamers and was their first FPS experience. Having been through Wolfenstein, Doom and a few more on PC by the time I touched this, the Star Fox graphics and weird little control stick made it seem like a backwards step to me. That said, I didn't play it much, maybe I would have got into it if I had.
