Italia64 opinions about N64 games

I recently got F-Zero X and have been having a blast with that one - it was a breeze up until the Master cups and now I've been practicing at those and trying to learn how to kill enemies more effectively (since I basically made it to this point without killing rivals at all but now it seems mandatory)

I've had Star Wars Episode I Racer for a while and that one has been a little tougher to get into, with the importance of strategic buying-and-selling-and-customizing pod upgrades catching me off guard, but that one is still fun and looks awesome with the expansion pak.

Those are the only ones on your list I've played, definitely going to check out those other ones. Thanks!
Getting good at laying out the other vehicles is the key to getting good at F-Zero X.
I somewhat demonstrate it here:

The game rewards you so much for being a wild out of control violent nutter...and I like that!

Creepy or dark N64 moments
The bottom of the well (Well of 3 features!) was heaps creepy for me.
As a 10 year old, I figured I probably needed to do it to beat the game, but put it off and hoped it was just bonus goods down there.
I don't know what it was, the fact you have to go underground, but mostly the skeleton just near the entrance put me right off.
And then it struck again over 10 years later when playing through the game with my now ex...she found it way too creepy down there.
Worse than the Shadow Temple, not sure why.

Also, the Forest Temple music.
And the thingies that drop from the ceiling with a shadow and grab you.
And Majoras Mask in general.

N64Forever Beats 'Em All!
Yeah I've had N64 games do that many a time before.
Don't panic, don't start a new file, just turn it off and try again.
Sometimes firing up another game helps.
Don't know how it works, but I've always regained my files 👍

Sorry I haven't been ading in total stages, lately, pain to do on phone, will get around to it later.
