Well here is the majority of my collection. The N64 was the very first system I bought with my own money. I saved my allowance forever and got it when I was around 10. Unfortunately I never had much money to buy anything else with it, only a few games. It got lost along the line of growing up and I just recently decided to have it replaced. I've done quite a bit more than just replace, as I have tons more things now than I ever had when it was popular.

I also have quite a few of the original systems, try modding and just messing around with them. I have the DK64 set complete in the box. It is the Jungle Green System. Also have the Watermelon system.

I have the 12 and 24 black cases that hold games. I have rumble paks and memory cards. Original rumble pak and controller pak boxed. Also have quite a few N64 bags for carrying systems in, I just use them to store everything in.

The controllers I have are: Originals, grey, red, blue (boxed), green, yellow, atomic purple, grape, watermelon, jungle green, ice blue, and DK64. I also have the weird looking Superpad and Makopad. Friday I bought a clear blue and white Hori mini, haven't received it yet.

I've gotten this all fairly recently. I'm obviously still looking for many other things. I really want Paper Mario and the Mario Parties. I'm also really wanting the gold Power 100 controller. I thought I had bought it off ebay. It was described as such and when I received it, it was just a plain gold. I was highly upset. Anyway, let me know what you think of my collection. I know I don't have many must have things, but I like how it is going. Also if you have doubles or whatever of stuff I don't have, I'd be very interested. Thanks for looking. Sorry for the length of this post!

Oh one last thing: How do you post pictures in message? Thanks, take care.

And update about me getting an Nintendo 64, I will not be able to use Paypal since I am not old enough for one. However, I should be old enough to use a debit card if I'm lucky, so all I need to do is learn how to pay online with a debit card, get a debit card, and enough money, and hopefully, I'll be able to get an Nintendo 64. Otherwise, I'm screwed since my family hates credit cards.

Haha, yeah.
Thats cool though.
Not many kids these days have enough respect for the :n64: , and you want to work JUST to play it.
Thats dedication. :yeah:

And yeah, debit cards are absolute win.
Paying with your OWN money, I wouldn't do it any other way.
Credit cards ARE stupid and worth hating, the concept behind them is utterly stupid as well.

Good luck! ;)

Thanks for the complimation. And my grandparents agree, credit cards suck. BTW, I'm getting an pre-paid one, can you use that to pay online (Not old enough for a real one sadly)?

Anyway, here is my plan to get an Nintendo 64. It'll consist of multiple steps:

1. Figure out what you need with an Nintendo 64 console (Done)
2. What you need to learn about paying online (Done)
3. Set up a plan to get Nintendo 64 (Done)
4. Get a job and open an bank account. Also get an debit card.
5. Get enough money to afford an Nintendo 64.
6. Buy an Nintendo 64 with a game OR find someone to sell a Nintendo 64 to me.
7. Have fun with an Nintendo 64.
8. Once I get bored with the game I have or need to get an peripheal required, I'll buy some online or wherever I can find it.
9. Repeat step seven and eight until there is nothing else I want out of the system or get an PS3 (Which in that case, take a break from my N64). This repeation will take years to end, which is an sweet deal considering that the Nintendo 64 is one of my favorite video game system.

I'll post my progress here if you don't mind. If you do mind, I'll make a thread about this. If I post my progress in another thread as requested by other people, once I get an Nintendo 64, I'll tell you guys, let a few posts out, and when it starts to die down, ask an admin to close it. However, once I get an Nintendo 64, I'll be posting my collection here.

I just asked my grandparents if I could go to work anytime soon, but my grandfathers thinks it's a bad idea. I can understand why, I need to keep my grades up and I don't want my GPA to suffer. However, I do not want to wait until I'm a junior to get a job, by that time, I'll have to start saving up for college and disregard all other things.

However, while it is doubtful I'll be able to work at fifteen, maybe it'll change when I turn sixteen. Then again, this isn't really bad news anyway. I wasn't expecting to afford an N64 during the sophomore school year anyway. But then comes summer, which is an great oppertunity to save up money for one. And even after I get an Nintendo 64 and all that, I will still hold a job. Why? Half of my money is going towards my grandparents, since they desperately need it (They're retired, so they don't make any money) and three-fourth of the money I earn goes toward more important things. So basically, for every paycheck, one-eight of it will go towards spending money for entertainment.

I remain optimistic as ever about the situation, so there isn't really any delay. There's a guy who's willing to trade with me when I get $60. Including possible shipping fee (Let's say $10, which brings the overall cost to $70) and I should have the money in nine weeks of working. If I start on the 1st Monday of June, I should be able to afford it by August. Then again, I predicted the same thing for the PS3 purchase I was going to make at the same time. However, I plan on work fourty-hours weekly so it'll probably be much faster then that.

But even when I get an Nintendo 64, will my grandparents let me work throughout my school year during my junior year? I really hope so, because I'm not about to let my upcoming Nintendo 64 collection become useless just a few weeks or so after buying it.

But who knows? I might be able to convince my grandparents that I can work AND keep up at school. Being someone who is determined to not only work to get what he wants, but also help his family, there is a slim chance that I'll be posting news of me having an Nintendo 64 shortly during June.

Every N64 game I own including the doubles (a triple) I own at the moment. Star Wars Rogue Squadron though will soon be leaving the collection, trading it for a gba game.

I hope this works. I'm trying to see if I figured out this adding pictures in a post thing. If I violate rules on size or anything please let me know. Just testing things out. Anyway these are some pictures of my things. Basically everything except the games and doubles of things (original consoles, controllers, etc.). Please remember I'm fairly new to collecting so nothing too impressive here.

My consoles:

Pokemon is not my thing, but I got a great deal on that console.

Controllers:

@l0whit07: I don't think that's much of a problem. I have seen simlar size images from admins (Especially alxbly).

Here is some update on me getting an Nintendo 64. Right now, me and another guy are planning a trade between each other once I can fork over the money (Which will take months). The guy has an Nintendo 64 w/ three controllers, tons of memory paks (Controller Paks), WCE/NWO Revenge/Mario Kart 64/Mario Golf/Mario Tennis/and all the necessary cables. The guy had questionable grammer somewhat difficult to understand and we met online via IGN. I asked these questions and here are the answers he gave:

1. Would there be shipping cost? He said it he would look into it, but all that really means is I have to save up some extra cash, no big deal.

2. Would you need an Paypal account to trade online (Money to the person you're trading with and the thing you want that the person gives)? He doesn't have a Paypal account, so that's probably a no. However, he's not sure how we can trade other then me sending an check to him, and even then, I'm worried it's a little unsafe and I doubt my grandparents would fly with that. Also, I do not want to reveil my street address or my city name. I am currently trying to find a way to pay him online with a pre-paid debit card that I'm planning to get.

3. Does the controller stick work properly? This one I was also worried about. He had three controllers. Two of which were first-party controllers that were perfectly responsive. The third-party controller he had said it worked fine, but the thumbpad was broken.

4. Was the Nintendo 64 console NTSC or PAL? Luckily, it's NTSC.

To be fair, I'm not sure if this trade will go well. I am worried that I'll end up wasting money for nothing even if the trade goes as planned. It's a good thing I'm planning ahead because I don't want it to go bad because I really do want an Nintendo 64. So with all that said, should I go with the trade or should I cancel it?

That sounds very questionable to me. I personally wouldn't do it. I only ever buy from the likes of ebay or amazon or in person. A lot of people do business through forums and stuff, but I believe most people use Paypal, so there is evidence of the transaction. I don't have experience with buying on forums, but I would only do it with paypal and I definitely would not send a check. I find lots of good deals on craigslist. You should easily be able to get a system and a game or 2 for about $30.

I will take your suggestions, especially since I have no experience from buying from other people online. I'll create an Ebay account once I complete the steps I plan to take to pay for stuff online. I heard in the USA that you don't need an Paypal account to pay online, good thing because I'm only fifteen and you have to be eighteen to get one.

Thanks for the help.

Looks like it worked fine. :) I recently introduced some code to the forum so that large images are resized, so size isn't a problem anymore (within reason.... images that are 20+ megapixel would still take a long time to load).

That's sounds like a pretty risky deal to me. He could easily walk away with your cash, and you end up with nothing. I'd say wait on a pre-pay credit card or just keep checking thrift stores/garage sales for a good deal.

Thanks for the comments on my collection. It's coming along slowly, well kind of quickly, only been at it for about 3 months.

Anyway, what do you all think about the "Player's Choice Million Seller" copies of games? Do you not care, or try to avoid them, or are the non player's choice versions worth more or no difference? I usually just get what I come across. Some are Player's Choice and some aren't. I think the ones without the big Player's Choice logo look better though.

Probably just irrelevant details, but just curious.

Generally I prefer standard editions over players choice but it's never been a big deal to me; if a player choice version of a game was cheaper I'd probably go for that (and same applies to games on all formats). In regards to N64 carts we were kinda lucky in the UK because the standard and player choice edition carts are exactly the same; it was only the box that was different. I reckon if you see a game you want that works and is in good condition then you should just get it. If the players choice logo bothers you then you could always sell it/trade it later.

I haven't tried thrift stores or garage sales yet, but I will start trying those. But I'm more likely to wait until I get an pre-pay debit card, especially since my grandparents are against credit cards and I believe them. The person above already told me that it wouldn't be an good idea so I'm cancelling that trade. Last thing I need is to waste $60 on something I worked for.

But anyway, here are more updates. First of all obviously, I am cancelling that trade with the person I mentioned above, due to it being risky. And another thing, I asked my grandmother about getting me an Nintendo 64. She basically laughed at my idea saying that it was outdated and that I would get bored of it really quick. However, I have tons of games I'm wanting to get for the system and I know it will not disappoint. Knowing that getting an old console is much cheaper then let's say, the Playstation 3, she'll probably let me fly with the idea, which is great news.

Now all I need is a job and the supplies needed to pay online. I am also confirming that I will be using mainly Ebay for my shopping of Nintendo 64 games. I'll be diving into the relatively rare games first like Worms Armaggendon and Conker's Bad Fur Day, since I don't want to miss the oppertunity to get them before they skyrocket even more.

Given that I start in the summer, I'll be able to completely afford the system by late June and start collecting games from then. I'm even considering not getting an Playstation 3 because of this.

Ebay is pretty good, but you should still check 2nd hand shops, etc, you can find some of th emost unbelievable bargains by dumb luck.
Few years ago the video shop near where I lived was selling off all its N64 games for $5 each. Still kinda kicking myself for not buying Paper Mario!
But I got 8 games for $40 including Donkey Kong 64 WITH an expansion pak.
And my friend got Perfect Dark with expansion pak for the same price.

Also, its really encouraging to see people your age appreciate the N64.
I've been playing N64 with someone your age a bit lately, even though everyone else was playing new games (mostly Brawl in the other room), it good too see some people play games just because there more fun and not care that they're old.

Very well, I'll consider looking at 2nd hands shop. After all, you did get great deals on them, so why not try them? I'll also look at flea markets. I saw an Nintendo 64 there for $50 during Spring Break, 2008 in Forth Worth, Texas. I wanted one, but my dad said it was a bad idea to start all over. Later, I would come to realize that I made a big mistake. Once I get the money for an Nintendo 64, I will make sure not to make that mistake again.

I'm glad that it actually encourge you when people my age acutally apperatice the system. And just becuase the game is outdated doesn't mean it sucks and they can even be more fun then the latest best game on the market.

I need some advice on collecting N64 games. I'm fairly new to collecting but jumped in to it a little fast and have quite a large collection for the amount of time I've been doing it. I would love to collect complete in box for all my games, but I'm having a hard time deciding if it is worth it.

When I first started, I decided I would only buy CIB of the major games I wanted, or of games I found really cheap. That is basically what I've done up until now. If I found a cartridge only for a great deal I would buy it. So now I have roughly 120 games, and probably only around 25-30% of them are CIB.

I've thought about buying those clear cases that you cant print labels for and using those for less important games, but I don't know. The allure of a CIB collection is very great.

It seems most people here don't go the CIB route, so for those people would you please say why you chose that method. Also the same for anyone who went CIB.

Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

For me, CIB is the Way! All my N64 games are CIB, and I'm in the process of replacing my uncomplete games on other systems by CIB games (only some NES and SNES games remain).

It's obviously a bit more expensive (or very much more expensive for a few games), but several libraries full of boxed games are much nicer to see than boxes crafts full of loose cartridges ;)

I suppose that sums it up; if you want some boxes to look at go for CIB, if you just want to play the games then you really only need carts. :)

I tended to buy complete copies of the N64 games that have a special meaning to me; i.e. Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Mario Kart, etc, or for the rarities like Clayfighters Sculptors Cut, Bangaioh, etc, because they are something that I can treasure. But if it's a N64 game that I'm just trying out or something that's of little value (in money and sentimental terms) then a box isn't particularly important. Do I care I don't have a box and instuctions for games such as Fifa 64, Armorines or NHL 99? Nope, not a bit. ^_^

Thanks alxbly and Lord Suprachris for the comments. I think, for now, I'm going to continue just get CIB of the important stuff (anything with Mario on it) and games I get for cheap. I'll get only cartridge if it's a really good deal.

I got something I have been trying to get since day 1 of my collecting days today. This is my favorite N64 console and I am extremely happy about it. Today was a great day.

Nintendo 64:

Also here is a picture of some newer things I've gotten. I mentioned getting them here, but never showed a picture. Also a couple things I never mentioned.

Mario Tennis is the first Japanese version of a game I've gotten. Batman Beyond sealed in the picture, but I imagine I'll have it opened very soon. Rayman and Gauntlet Legends are the 2 cartridges if it was hard to see. Also that is the Ice system not the clear blue, unfortunately.

Couldn't resist sharing my happiness about the red system.

I just joined Smash World Forums and I heard that in the USA where I live, you can get an Paypal account and a debit card before turning eighteen. Prometheus has two Nintendo 64's and he's willing to sell me one once we both have an Paypal account and I can get enough money.

Once that happens, do you think it'll be a safe trade?

Sorry, but how can anyone here know if it will be a safe trade or not?

Is this a guy that you've just met on this forum? If so, you know very little about him so even using paypal... you're just sending him money! Very risky.

Does he have an eBay account? Does that account have seller feedback? Ask him. Look at his feedback on eBay. Find out if he has doen previous trades on that other forum, and if those went well. If you do decide to buy from him, request that the sale is posted on eBay. Use paypal to pay. Ask for a trackable shipping method.

Read eBay's help page, specifically the sections on "Bidding & buying" and "Payment & shipping":

http://pages.ebay.com/help/index.html

Or, do what you've been advised to do by a few people in this topic already; look for a N64 in a thrift store, flea market or such like. That way you avoid paying shipping, you'll most likely get a bargain, you get to see the actual console you're buying and you'll probably be able to check the controller as well.

I love that clear blue version you got alxbly. I love the box with Mario on it. That is definitely the version I would love to have. I also want a PAL system, just for collecting purposes, and getting a pal system that is clear blue would be like killing two birds with one stone. Plus it has Mario on it!

Alxbly, what is that black thing on the wire of your gray controller? I've never seen that.

@ Super Smash Bros. Fan: I also highly recommend just buying a system at a second hand shop, or from someone nearby on Craigslist. All the secondhand gaming stores around here sell the system with a controller for $25 or $30. If you buy on Craigslist you can usually get an even better deal.

[/quote]Ah, the clear red and clear blue Japanese/PAL systems are so cool!!! Great pieces, gents!!

I wish I were home right now so I could take/post a pic of my "matching" clear blue Hori minipad and clear blue OEM controllers. Hmm, maybe after "Lost" . . . .

BTW, if anyone is interested in a clear blue japanese system and OEM controller, http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260544186729&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT. The seller also told me they have a matching Hori mini pad that they are willing to part with as well. Never dealt with them, but were great to correspond with (I just wanted the OEM controller; but they made a sweet offer for the whole shootin match. . . . )
