What if the N64 was disk based?; Alternative reality!

Cartridges! I love my carts. I would rather have a system built around cart based gaming than a disc any day. It is not out of nostalgia, for me, it is out of preference for my gaming. I am so happy that Nintendo stuck to their guns and gave us the beloved N64 in all its glory. It set the standard for present day 3D world gameplay. Its innovation changed the way we game.

Presently technology has out ran the disc media and at some point I believe that they will either have to return to some form of flash cart based gaming, digital download, or cloud based games. That is why consoles have that hard drive built in, it can't access the needed code fast enough from the disc drive to prevent heavy load times.

Loving my Ridge Racer 64. On a cart, who would have thought? Only The N64 could have accomplished that piece of work. I cherished that from day one, back in the day. Couldn't wait to get my hands on the game. And it instantly became my favorite version of the game. Brought to me by Nintendo going against the grain of a gaming generation basing the N64 on carts, thumbing their nose at the disc.
