Any exclusive N64 gamers?

I might be one of those guys lol. I have been for several months now. I was never steeped in N64 when it came out because I was a toddler but around 2014 I got into this system.

I've stopped counting but I've beaten about 60 games this year and like 50 were N64 games though not all of them were new games I haven't beaten before. I played a couple Nes and Snes games at the beginning of the year and I still occasionally play a game of Smash Bros 4 with my cousin but I'm completely enveloped by N64 at the moment. Due to the high density of games I have beaten and played extensively I was asked to help write the N-Cyclopedia 64 by a good friend of mine, so I'll be busy with N64 for a few more years it seems.

At this point I went on a tirade about how few people want to talk about N64 games that aren't heavy hitters, collectors and video game store owners who know less about their possessions than I do, and my own disappointment for my lack of game talk on the forum lately since I've been putting all my energy into my writing. But I deleted it all because it was very whiny. Point is I like N64 and would like to be a guy people come to when they wonder about games no matter how obscure or crappy they are.

I'm new to N64, still love Sega consoles and own a Saturn with a much bigger library, and I also have a gaming PC and a Ps3. I feel pretty satisfied with this line up for life. The N64 isn't exclusively what I play but its incredibly special - it scratches a specific itch that no other console I have will and I approach it very differently than I do my other consoles.
It's because they don't make games like they did on N64 anymore, because they couldn't get away with it. They are incredibly time period specific which makes a lot of aspects charming, to me anyway. The same goes for PS1 and probably Saturn, but I'm less farmiliar with those.
