My name is Melody, and I am 27 years old and live in illinois.

About 2 years ago we were decluttering at my moms. My parents got every console and many games over the years so i had to make a decision..... N64 or PS1? I have very fond memories of Tomba and Spyro but the N64 is what really captures the innocent carefree joy of my childhood. The hard, smooth plastic of the cartridges! The feel and sound of the clicking in of accessories! Woooo! I was hooked all over again.


Many of the games and controllers have been broken or lost over the years so i didnt have much to start with. I did find my favorite yellow controller, and my brothers black one. Sentiment to the max. I could only find half a dozen games?

Flash forward to today and now I have over 100 games, 2 consoles, 4 nuby reality vests, pelican tilt pak, the glove! and more! I'm so excited to share my love and excitement with others who feel the same!

Welcome aboard Melody! We have a ton of great n64 collectors, but I suspect NONE of them can boast having 4 reality vests👍 Thanks for joining us!

The Nuby reality vest is a one size fits most vest the has 6 individual rumble paks attached to it! It plugs into the back of your controller. This thing takes 2 AAA batteries for the controller rumbler, and 4 AA batteries for the vest itself!! There are 4 different settings for how you would like your rumbles! (Front to back, random, ect)

I will say that wearing one for a while does get you a little hot! It has been the most fun with smash bros and star fox so far.

https://youtu.be/RdIbtS2R5Js You can see it on the youtube video I found. Nuby did make a vest for the PS1 but the wires/accents are grey and the 64 has the sweet yellow wires/accents. I will post pictures soon!

The Bio Sensor!!!! Woo!! I dont have the game yet!

I have many more games now... they get a spine label after they are tested and cleaned. My favorite carts have Blockbuster or small no-name rental stickers. I have zero interest collecting anything mint or CiB, I want the beat up carts with sloppy children's hand writing, something that was used and loved! I believe the joy and energy is stuck in that plastic forever! (Hopefully not the frustration haha) however... some boxes are pretty neat to have and see. :)

My foam on my glove is a little chewed on.....

Im very happy with my pelican tilt pak!! Working and awesome. I like how you can add batteries to make it rumble. I dont in case it knocks something loose in there! Ha

And my original game shark still works! I have really only used it on rampage so we can all be the bat all the time! :)

Nice sig Melody. :yeah:
Kids are cool!
Regardless of what year it is, there's always something that Nintendo does, or has done that appeals to a younger generation. I think it's paramount to their upbringing. :n64:

I defiantly agree about that! I remember reading something about how the nintendo64 did appeal more to families vs the competition with mostly adult titles and shooters.

I love how my son calls it the pretendo. (Pretend/nintendo) so cute. I didnt expect to feel so proud when my son started playing on his own. His objectives are sweet.... standing next to other characters, picking up rocks and bushes, killing the occasional bad guy. My favorite is when he plays a GB pokemon (via p. stadium) and sits at the table with his mom. Haha kids :)

I find this attitude so refreshing! :yeah:

Yeah, games are made to be played and enjoyed and if they get worn in the process - so be it. :D
