The 40 Best Nintendo 64 Games of All Time

Loveleen Kaur / ONE37pm

During the mid-90s, the biggest gaming companies that created and manufactured home consoles stepped into the burgeoning realm of 3D.

Nintendo just so happened to be one of those well-known institutions - visually appealing 3D titles, such as the Donkey Kong Country series and the very first Killer Instinct, pointed to the Japanese gaming establishment's commitment to that growing trend. When Nintendo decided to introduce a fully 3d piece of hardware to the gaming market, it ended up producing one of the most esteemed consoles of all time with the Nintendo 64. The fifth-generation console fought hard to take all the attention away from the Sony PlayStation and the Sega Saturn with exclusive experiences that the "House of Mario" did so well.
