  • Info: The Nintendo 64 was a radical change from the accepted way by still using cartridges. It is debateable on how much this affected them, but the main lack was the lack of titles in the beginning. Now the Nintendo 64 is going strong due to Rare, Nintendo, Konami, Acclaim, and Midway. Acclaim and Midway has a resurgance because of their support for the Nintendo 64. They could make a sports game for the Nintendo 64 and have it be the only one out there. The fact that people believed it would die stopped after Banjo-Kazooie came out, and switched to whether Zelda would knock Sony from the top spor. The Nintendo started a trend with it's controller set up. It made a analog and digital joystick, along with the memory card port on the bottom of the controller. It has spawned the rumble pack, which Sony copied, and the 4 controller ports which made Goldeneye such a popular game. When Goldeneye was in the top 10 games sold in 98 when it was released in 97 says a lot about the fun death matching it has. 5 chipsets, the cartridge and memory needed to be emulated, and people thought it would take a 800 Mhz computer. Well, UltraHLE fixed that theory. And this is where we are. I'm still disappointed about the fact that it is limited to 32MB of Data.
