Silverwolf: Hello everyone! Silverwolf here for another awesome edition of Objection! Today, the wily Kaushik and I will debate the merits and shortcomings of the Nintendo 64, one of the most popular gaming consoles of the mid-90s through early 2000s. Nostalgia aside, I’m still of the opinion that the N64 is one of the best consoles ever made.
Kaushik: Kaushik here, and I will defend to the death that the N64 is Nintendo’s worst home console.
Silverwolf: Well, Kaushik, why do you think it’s the worst of Nintendo’s consoles?
Kaushik: For starters, it encapsulates all the design issues that plagued the gaming world just as videogames were going 3d. This issue is shared by the PS1, but the N64 gets the short end of the stick primarily because its software library was by and large worse and had little to no third party support. So let’s start with the software.
