After twelve years, I have finally collected every Nintendo 64 game released in North America.

Over the summer of 1997 is when I got the Nintendo 64. My first game was of course Super Mario 64, and just thinking of what it was like to experience that game for the first time gives me chills. I grew up with an NES and had only played the Super NES a few times before at a friend’s house, so moving from that to fully three-dimensional worlds was quite a jump. No game has ever captured my imagination like Super Mario 64. I also got Wave Race too but I thought it was boring at the time (I appreciate it now, so don’t hate on me okay?).

You probably know the affect the rest of Nintendo’s lineup had on me, it’s almost like a cliché to gush about how awesome the games are.

In 2003 I grew bored of waiting for good games to be released on the GameCube. Knowing just how awesome my library of 30 or so Nintendo 64 games was, I couldn’t help but wonder if there were any great ones which I had missed out on. The possibility was intriguing, and there was only one way to find out what I had passed up. On April 1st 2003 (no joke), I made it my goal to collect all 296 Nintendo 64 games released in North America.

Of course, it was difficult not to get distracted by all of the other great games out there for the other systems I owned; NES, SNES, GameCube, Game Boy, and more recently Wii purchases have all gotten in the way. If I were completely focused on the N64 this would have been accomplished a lot sooner.

The last game I bought was International Superstar Soccer 2000. It is quite possibly the rarest North American release, as it was available only to rent through Blockbuster.

After all is said and done, I am left feeling a strange mixture of happiness and sadness. Happy to have accomplished my goal, but sad that there are no games left to buy for my favourite system.

Words have never been my strong suit. Here are some pictures to express the madness.
