    PS Classic Shows Us Why N64 Won't Get One.

    Simple answer. These systems have aged like milk while their predecessors have aged like wine. Early 3D just can't make the cut in spite of the nostalgia of those who grew up on those games.

    They could choose better games that have aged well, but they would not have mainstream appeal or would be subject to licensing complications.

    I thought PS Classic is bad is because a good chunk of the games no one wanted, the fact they used the inferior PAL versions for 9 of them, and that there were games people wanted more than titles they put on the thing.

    I can make a list of 30 games given an hour or 2 for the 64.

    Even with all its faults, I can still easily see the PS Classic selling boatloads of units and making Sony decent $$.

    If those controllers are at least decent, I'm almost certainly going to buy one.

    I can't list 30 games for the N64 in a week, that have aged well. At least Nintendo owns many of the best ones.

    Yes, the PS1 classic games are bad, but name some other ones that might have changed that that would be well-known and owned mostly by Sony. There really aren't many.

    The PS1 has some great games. Just not the Sony games that most people might remember.

    It's likely a stopgap before we get something better. I don't think that it's going to outdo the NES or SNES Classics. When they can do the PS2 version, it's going to sell some insane numbers. PS2, in spite of its faults, has some great games that have aged well.

    I think an N64 Classic as far as game selection would be far better than the PS1 mainly of course due to licensing. You could literally just go all Mario. Honestly if you could just get Rare (MS) on board you'd already have your 20 core good titles.

    As far as aging, yeah the early 3D stuff is the hardest of any era. It doesnt discount that at its time, this era to me and many others was the most wowing in many ways. It doesnt take away from that.

    In fact even 4-5 years ago I never thought about the aging of PS1, Saturn and N64 3d graphics. I still found a weird charm to them. But last year playing Syphon Filter again is when I felt it a bit.

    Its harder to jump into these games as opposed to Genesis, SNES, NES etc but I think there are still plenty that have aged alright.

    I would guess the rare games wouldn't be there, since they are in RR. It would be nice to have them though.

    So something like...

    Mario 64
    Mario Kart 64
    Pod Racer
    Ocarina of Time
    Donkey Kong 64
    Star Fox 64
    Diddy Kong Racing
    Super Smash Bros
    Kirby 64
    Paper Mario
    Tony Hawk Pro Skater
    F-Zero X
    Excitebike 64
    Wave Race 64
    A wrestling game, maybe Wrestlemania 2000 or No Mercy?
    Then find 5 more filler titles or w/e to get the number up.

    That would sell hard.

    I still think it's nostalgia speaking. I do like a few of those games, but nearly a quarter won't happen.

    I'd throw in Mischief Makers and Ogre Battle 64 AKA the best Game on the console (Ogre Battle 64 I mean.).

    I could see licensing issues getting in the way.
