People on news broadcast talking about the N64 and reveling its "greatest games ever"! Twenty years ago, this month.
I especially love the line from Peter Main,
"The key isn't the number of games. The key is the quality of the games."
And he was right. With only two games, (Mario 64 and Pilot Wings) there were many, many hours to put into Super Mario alone. This ideal has been around with Nintendo forever, up to the WiiU.
Its so fascinating that these things can be lost so easily. Only with someone recording their TV with a VCR and then converting their VHS into a digital format and uploading to YouTube - its crazy. Archiving this stuff was important, but no one knew it.
I'm uploading this with the new regular video, which is N64 themed. I used some of this footage in the background of it. I did not originally record this from a VCR. I only shortened it and brightened it. But I had to share.
