N64 History

As the final nail in the coffin, the quality of games themselves in the Nintendo 64 library was middling, and there weren’t too much choice of genres available. The whole lineup was saturated by racing and kids games, and while there are a number of high quality titles such as the Nintendo 64 Mario games and the Legend of Zelda series, they were few and all came out within the early life of the console. By the end of its life, most of the videogame enthusiasts have already moved on to the competitor or are waiting for the Playstation 2 and Dreamcast to be released.

Whereas Playstation games on CDs can be as big as 640 MB and can be bigger if it has multiple discs, the maximum capacity of N64 games at that time was 256mbits, which is effectively 64 Megabytes. Even with the supposed strong compression, there wasn’t enough space allowed for high quality digital CD audio and full motion video. There are some titles that pushed the hardware to include these, such as the n64 port of Resident Evil 2, but they are few and far in between, and tend to be very expensive (Ps1 games tend to be priced per CD, but N64 games differ in price depending on the size of the game).
