The best of the 64 bit system
When thinking of 64 bit systems people with revert to either the Nintendo 64 or for those who remember it the Atari Jaguar, There are not many people who would have had friends or themselves owned a Jaguar. The nintendo 64 on the other hand was extremely popular with a huge array of titles like the super Mario 64 and Zelda series of games for single player action. On the other hand the console had 4 controller ports (first time this was seen) so was loved by many of its fans for its ability to entertain a party or sleepover with the likes of golden eye, perfect dark, the Mario party series. Internet services and online gaming hadn't really evolved features at time of release, So multiplayer action was a very social occasion. Previous consoles needed additional hardware to play with extra friends the n64 just needed additional controller and possibly an expansion port depending on the game. No party was complete without Mario Kart the quick racing, quality power ups and smooth sound made the N64 a hit for the nintendo company.
