The Nintendo 64 turns 18 this week!
Hard to believe but the 64 came out 18 years ago. I remember the first time I used one I couldn't get over the controller. It was such a foreign looking object compared to the NES, SNES and Genesis. With it also came arguably one of the best multi-player games of all time (Goldeneye) and I think a top 3 Mario (Mario 64).
Some of my favorite games definitely were:
  • Goldenyeye
  • 1080 Snowboarding
  • WaveRace
  • Shadows of...

What are the worst games you ever played?
ET may go down as one of the worst games ever made. If it's not at the top of every worst-of list, it's usually in the top three. It wasn't considered a bad game because of the era it was released, it was just a downright bad game. Critics slammed it for it's controls and called it a repetitive game. The game was so bad it's been long rumored that Atari dumped every remaining game... Read more →

Donkey Kony Country!!!
I bought up all the Donkey Kong Country games a few months ago and just started playing them recently. This first game is pretty sweet but I didn't expect it to be so hard!! If not for the save point in each world, I would be completely screwed!! I really want to beat these and the original game boy games as well!!!

mega telly and crap graphics
Hi there Just got my old super famicom plugged into my sony lcd 40 inch mega telly and the graphics are absolutely appauling as the image is so stretched that you now se all the blocks. I am rather dissapointed but the irony is the fact that the joypads still remain utterly fantastic to use. Emulation is great butt he inability to use the original pad really puts me off or limits my wanting to play the game for long. p.s. games playing are Axelay, SSF2, and final fight. also the 32 meg wildcard...

Greatest Colorway.
What else is to say, this is one of the most wonderful things to look at simply because of how fucking great the SNES is designed aesthetically. Subtle purple accents and highlights on the mute gray, I sound mad wack I know, but really...greatest.

Best Console Ever?
Many (including me) have the SNES as the current GOAT of consoles, but there is a growing contingent of people who think the PS2 should hold the crown... when having a discussion about best console; can you include the PS1 library of games since the PS2 is backwards compatible? (I don't think so and since the launch PS3s were backwards compatible it would have the strongest argument) If the question was something like you could only bring one console to an island, I understand that being a...

How is your SNES holding up?
Mine is broken... I was living in Korea at the time, when my dad bought it from Japan on a business trip just after it came out. I loved it so much, and I had a blast playing Mario and other great games on this system. Since electric plugs in Japan run at a different voltage than plugs in Korea, I had to use one of those voltage converter boxes. And one day, while forgetting to pull one of the switcher levers on it I plugged it in and... I fried the inside circuitry and essentially burned out...

Has your SNES succumbed to oxidation?
Just curious how many fellow SNES owners have one of the following: - A SNES that is all yellow due to oxidation - A SNES that is partially yellow due to oxidation - A SNES that is grey, factory perfect If you have a SNES that is partially yellow, please indicate which portion has turned. Why it happens: http://www.vintagecomputing.com/index.php/archives... Also, how many of you have the original SNES you bought/got back in the 90s?
