Is Mario 64 still fun? Or is it just a mix of nostalgia, speedrunners jerking off over the movement of Mario and brand loyalty that makes people still praise this game as some sort of Holy Grail of platforming? It was technically impressive when it came out, that's for sure, but as time passes it feels like more of a tech demo than a full fledged game and just doesn't hold a candle to SMB1/3/World

Samuel Garcia
Samuel Garcia

yes

Nathaniel Gonzalez

Can you play it for more than 20 minutes without being bored to death?

Henry Taylor

All opinions are subjective; my opinion is yes, it's fun. It's definitely a fair bit different than the previous titles, and you can argue it's different enough to not be a "proper" Mario game, but that doesn't make it not fun. But, then, i'd probably play and enjoy Nuts and Bolts for what it is, rather than for what it should have been, if i ever gave a shit to play it.

Summer's over kid, you should prepare for school.

Jacob Perez
Jacob Perez

Agreed, it is tech demo tier.
Shigeru Miyamoto actually didn't release another 3D platformer Mario game for over 5 years because he saw how good Crash Bandicoot was in action and got depressed that he knew he couldn't surpass it until the next generation with another tech demo game. Then Sunshine got BTFO by Jak and Daxter. Poor guy just couldn't catch a break.

Jordan Evans

this doesn't even make any sense because those games are older than 64, surely the summerfag would shill the newer game, right?

Isaac Morales

A tech demo that has probably the most satisfying movement and controls in any 3D game.

Ryder Morgan

Same old tired argument of character movement but what does it matter when the game itself is not that fun and the level design doesn't take full advantage of it?

Aaron Bailey
Aaron Bailey

There was no argument to begin with. It's always the same tired empty shitposting thread about SM64 with vague accusations over and over. I can't tell whether these are Crashfags getting uppity about their remake or something else, but there's a conscious effort here.

Xavier Martin
Xavier Martin

You're correct but that does not invalidate my point. What I want to know is where are the games that have amazing controls and moveset, and the level design to take advantage of them? There are parts in SM64 that do, the town in Wet-Dry World is the best example.

Ethan Reyes

Isaiah Jenkins

I'm just asking a legitimate question and all you can do is resort to namecalling and accusing me of being summer or crashfag when I never mentioned Crash to begin with, you sound awfully paranoid mate.

Ofc there is.
Sonyggers are getting fucking depserate that their new console is failing and even the normalfags are starting to wake up by getting drowned in some half done rehash of old games.
Exoect more threads like this one, that try to badmouth classics in order to make new products look better.
Microshit operates in the same way, and Jewtendo probably too, although I haven't seen muich shitting on old PS titles in favor of some new Mario or whatever.

I never really liked 64, it got boring as shit after a while. Yeah, the movement is superb, but that's pretty much it.

Crash had superior level design, gameplay, art/character design and was far more technically impressive. Miyamoto himself admitted this, yet, some people just can't admit Sony struck gold with PS1/2 and had a far more impressive library of games.

Asher Torres

It used to be at least

Nicholas Ramirez
Nicholas Ramirez

It remains the tightest and most fun 3D platformer ever made, with the best level design to boot. Leaving most stars unlocked no matter what objective you chose was also genius-tier design since it adds an extra layer of exploration and experimentation to the game.
Later entries like Galaxy or Sunshine have much more polish, but they're also just linear set pieces with a specific star at the end. SM64 lets you direct the action, in other words, while Sunshine and Galaxy just make you a scripted actor.

Nolan Parker
Nolan Parker

most fun 3D platformer ever made
Huh?

Carter Foster
Carter Foster

has anyone ever fixed this game through emulation? the camera in sm64 is some of the worst of any 3D games out there.

the fact that marios movement changes as the camera changes forcing you to use the "fixed" camera mode for tricky spots just shows how bad it is. if youre trying to walk a narrow path, you better turn on fixed camera so the camera doesnt suddenly shift 90 degrees causing you to run straight off the path. if someone would just mod this game for a dual analog controller or just make it so the left and right C buttons were smooth instead of sudden jumps the game would be so much better. it would actually become one of the best 3d platformers out there.

It gets a 2/10 for playability, but SM64 Chaos is entertaining if you've mastered the game already and want to feel that sweet feeling of pure frustration.

Dominic Campbell

You have to believe in fun to understand the objective truth of that statement. I understand that around here, the concept of "fun" is seen as a jewish trick.

Jeremiah Roberts

yea, its perfectly fine for a camera to not be able to spin around in a circle

n64 controller was one of the poorest designed official controllers ever made. the camera in mario 64 is trash. maybe you havnt played it in a long time? the camera cant even spin around completely. it also moves on its own and immediately changes mario's direction. also, it can only move at fixed angles.
no mention of sony in thread
nintendo gets insulted
respond with sonygger
you nintoddlers never change.

all these nostalgia fags.

Austin Butler
Austin Butler

I replayed it a few months ago. Yes, it's still fun. The main reason why I found it to still be fun is that the levels are small, so they're filled with things to do. You go to get one star, and you look at all this other stuff and you are already ready to come back to the level so you can get the other star.

I dropped Yooka Laylee, the levels were too large. You'd find something cool and then spend 5 minutes walking to it.

SM64 was basically
we have 4.5MB of RAM and carts are expensive
how can we fit the most fun into these constraints?

Modern games
lol we have 8GB of RAM and we can use 50GB of storage before a small group of gamers complain
lets make everything fucking huge!
oh no we tried to make a giant game and it cost too much to fill up this giant map with stuff to do
here's your $60 price tag
get ready for all the overpriced DLC
have some microtransactions

The camera is probably the weakest point of the game, but if you consider the level design, gameplay, etc the camera isn't a deal breaker.

And before you fags call me a nostalgia fag, I've dropped plenty of games I've played in the past because they weren't that good. Some of you would probably get angry with me if I told you what games they were.

Camden Martin
Camden Martin

No, its not.
Also stop playing videogames

Cameron Nguyen
Cameron Nguyen

I played it a few years ago on the DS, I dont remember the camera changing for the remake but perhaps it did
anyway the remake at the very least has a totally fine camera and I highly suspect its exactly the same as on the n64.
as far as the 64 contoller goes its not as bad as the memes would have you believe but it is bad, the analog stick really grates on your thumb with continuous use and its often used for movement (ie continuous use)

Daniel Wood

You sound like a millennial, to be quite honest.

Aiden Wright
Aiden Wright

as time passes it feels like more of a tech demo than a full fledged game
That's because you're comparing what's essentially the progenitor of 3D platformers to everything made since that were directly inspired by it. Of course it's rough around the edges, especially with regard to camera control.
and just doesn't hold a candle to SMB1/3/World
It has everything those games had and more. Also, Super Mario Bros 2 is the best game in the series.

Jack Lopez

Yeah, early games you had to have talented programmers who could make the most out of limited hardware. Now you have people making games who can't even code thanks to things like UE4 blueprints, where you just drag and drop game logic.

Go look at the tools they used to make SM64, absolutely barbaric. They had to make their own physics engine too.

Brody Anderson
Brody Anderson

No.
The game aged like milk and i have noticed youtubers trying to force an epic meme how it's the greatest platformer ever created, going so far to say that original Crash Bandicoot was always trash that couldn't hold a candle to it.

Kevin Perez
Kevin Perez

yooka laylee
why do that to yourself? i hope you didnt pay for it…

the camera is shit, faggot.
"dont question the classics!"
"it was good for the time!"
it's always been shit and was always a complaint about the game.

31 years old. so yea, thats technically a millennial. you sound like the kind of kid that would try to argue frank sinatra and the beatles are the epitome of music. because it's classic (for you)

i bought an aftermarket gamecube analog stick and put it in the n64 controller. much better. but its just a poor design. the dpad cant even be used at the same time as the analog stick. or the L button. it was just poorly thought out.

There's barely any 3D platformers that match the quick movement, great level design, and hidden secrets that 64 perfects on its first iteration, and most of the ones that can match it are other 3D Mario games. Odyssey might top it as the best overall, but 64 is still a fantastic game

I'm sorry, but the Dreamcast is actually as underrated or evem more so than than however much overrated you think. It even had Holla Forums's coveted good "muh exclusives", and really good online. On every technical merit it was the superior machine until the Xbox.

What's it like being so wrong? I'm guessing it hurts your derriere immensly.

Benjamin Lewis
Benjamin Lewis

not him but it lets you use you move around and rewards you for doing so, yet its not huge, its the middle ground where movement will be rewarding but not tedious and the only other 3d platformer I have played that felt like that were crash bandicoot games, but those are a very different type of game to the point I am not sure I would call them a 3d platformer

Jonathan Ross
Jonathan Ross

The absence of level design that makes you think "just what were they going for in this level, why is it so frustrating, why did they do this" usually implies youre having fun with the levels and the level design isnt a problem.
I can think of some mechanics in sm64 that werent that fun, such as poles and the majority of hazards on tick tock clock and rainbow ride, but those are the final levels and theyre supposed to have tricky platforming.
I think you're just playing devil's advocate here.

Landon Parker

Compared to the PS2/GC it sure as hell didn't and most of the good ones either got ported to other platforms or were 3rd party titles like Rayman 2

Cameron Richardson
Cameron Richardson

that would be PS2. better graphics, more games, better games, better controller.
but why dont you start with telling me why you think that about the dreamcast? most people i knew at the time only had that shitty sonic game that was hyped at the time but aged like milk. what else did it have?

the small interesting levels were packed with many things to do and many ways to go about them. the most simple level, bombomb battlefield had a mountain and there were 5 ways to get up the mountain which is more times than they require of the player. watch video related he does a nice in-depth review.

its a good console that was overlooked by the vast majority of people. but on Holla Forums it got too much hype for what it has to offer.

Jace Hall

because he saw how good Crash Bandicoot was in action

Crash Bandicoot looks good because it has a system that loads only what is visible at any time. It's all pre-calculated. However, this method requires the game to be entirely linear. Every level is pretty much a tunnel. Mario 64 is not as dense with detail, but it has large stages that you can explore much more freely and a camera system under your control.

Not saying Crash is bad, or that Mario 64 is perfect, but Mario 64 is clearly superior by far.
