There are around 400 games for the system and some of the best included Mario 64, Turok, Goldeneye, Wave Race 64 (a personal favourite), Pilotwings and Conker’s Bad Fur Day.

The N64 was a collaboration between Nintendo and SGI (Silicon Graphics), with SGI creating the “Reality Immersion Engine” that rendered 32-bit pixels ((16.7 million colours) and a whole bunch of other technical marvels that resulted in one of the best consoles ever made.

The controller helped the latter game give a sense that you were actually flying.
