Here's every N64 game I may never own, unless I get lucky or bite the bullet on their price.
- The holy grail of the system is ClayFighter: Sculptor's Cut, but it's just an updated version of a game I already possess, so if I never get to have it, it's no skin off my back.
- Super Bowling, Stunt Racer 64, PGA European Tour, and NFL Blitz Special Edition are all just sports game that I can probably live without, as well, but I actually really want to get Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 for the simple reason that it was the last game made for the system. I can see myself biting the bullet on this one; it's pricey, but not absurdly so.
- Sometimes, there's an unfortunate situation where the ONLY reason a game is considered rare or valuable is because it was released at the tail-end of a system's life cycle. Bomberman 64: The Second Attack is probably the most egregious example of this, especially because it's part of a big name franchise, and it was never re-released; paying $250 for a loose copy is your only legal option. It's not even good, apparently.
- Games like Worms: Armageddon and Transformers: Beast Wars Transmetals may be expensive to get on the N64, but at least they happen to be available for cheaper on other platforms, such as the PlayStation.
- Ogre Battle 64 and Harvest Moon 64 are both available as Virtual Console titles on the Wii U's e-shop, so I'll probably just end up picking them up on that platform.
- Snowboard Kids 2, Chameleon Twist 2, and the two Goemon games are the ones that hurt me the most. They're all considered great games, and none of them are available on anything else. For these ones, I'll just have to cross my fingers that Nintendo Switch Online will have add N64 games some day.
- Strangely enough, if I were to hold out for digital re-releases for all the games I want the most on this chart, the most logical game to physical purchase on this chart would end up being Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine and Duck Dodgers, because these are never
- Starcraft 64 would be such a cool game to pick up, and I'm still kicking myself for passing it up that one time I actually saw it on a shelf (it would've sent me way over budget, but still).
- I recently beat Earthworm Jim 1 and 2, so Earthworm Jim 3D would be the next game in the series for me, I suppose. But the original creators apparently have nothing to do with this game, and it got bad reviews because the charm was lost, or something. It would be a fun novelty, at the very least.
- Daikatana is an infamously bad game by John Romero, and it's kind of a meme. I might bite the bullet some day.
