You won't be disappointed if you follow the advice of N64 magazine. They've been my buying guide since I got my N64. I've dragged out my old issues to assemble this LOVELY list for all you retro gamers. For fear of breaching copyright laws, however, I've restricted myself to just the names of the game and order for which they appear in the November 2001 charts (Issue 60). This was basically the summary of all the good N64 games.

Thanks N64 Magazine or whoever you are now. You were almost as entertaining as the games themselves.
