Rampage 2: Universal Tour
Well that worked out amazingly well for you :yeah:

April Game of the Month Nomination Topic
This April marks the 10th birthday of Nintendo 64 Forever. April also by random chance happens to be the 64th edition of Game of the Month. I think either one of those things alone is a pretty big deal, but together they are epic. In honor of these two cataclysmic events, I am declaring a top 20 open month. What does this mean???

**Games in the top twenty in sales listed below ARE eligible this month**

Normally this is just reserved for each January (GotM anniversary), but I wanted to make a special exception. Please take advantage of this bending of normal protocol, and consider nominating one of these normally disqualified titles. *Note - Titles in top 20 shown in red below have previously won, and cannot win again*

Here is how it works:

The topic will remain open for the first half of the month. At which point, I will write each of the nominations on a piece of paper, and draw 5 total out of a bowl.

Those 5 will then be put to a vote for the rest of the month to decide the official "Nintendo 64 Forever Game of the Month". You may nominate a game already chosen by another member if you wish too, but only one piece of paper per game nominated will be put in to the bowl. If someone has already nominated a game you wished to nominate, please consider going with your 2nd choice. Those nominated that are not drawn out as well as the 4 that lose the vote will be eligible for re-nomination next month if you so choose.

In case anybody is lost here, the idea is for you to play the winning game for a bit, and then
comment on your thoughts after playing. We used to discuss things like game play, graphics, sound, controls, replay value, as well as how the game has stood the test of time. This is a great chance to discover fun games you perhaps missed out on.

If you do not own the winning game; perhaps consider borrowing, buying, emulation, or perhaps even check for it on the virtual console.
Any questions? Just ask away...

1. Super Mario 64
2. Mario Kart 64

Rampage 2: Universal Tour
After many nominations and near wins, Rampage 2 is finally our winner.

I personally never owned a Rampage game of my own. However, I frequently rented and borrowed them. Simple gameplay but funny and entertaining :lol:

I wouldn't mind playing a round or two at the moment as a mater of fact :yeah:

What is your first memory of the Nintendo 64
It has been a while, and a new topic was long overdue. I started the series a couple of years ago to help us learn more about one another. Sometimes it gets tough to keep coming up with questions.

A big thanks goes to Bamboozled, who proposed the question ""what is your first memory of the n64 and its games?"

I will start -

In the fall of 1996, I was in 7th grade. I didn't have many friends at the time, but video games were starting to help me get past that. A fellow named Sedrick was in my 6th period science class. We started talking daily about Doom versus Wolfenstein. I had always played games, but hadn't gotten super heavy in to them at this point. He asked me if I had heard of the Nintendo 64. I told him I had a NP subscription, and had seen some stuff for it. Sometime in November he came by my house and brought Mario 64. Talk about an eye opening experience! I remember it very clearly, though it was almost 20 years ago. A couple of weeks later, I tried and liked Pilot Wings.

I was awestruck. I soon asked my mom for an N64 for Christmas, which I received alongside a copy of Mario 64.

What games are you playing?
Started The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt late Wednesday night. Not very far in, but enjoying it thus far. It is truly impressive thus far.

Rockstar just barely gets edged out for me
