2) Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber

Released: 2000

Nintendo 64 was not known for its epic RPGs. Outside of Paper Mario, there wasn’t much of anything for RPG players to enjoy, let alone write home about. Ogre Battle 64 was an exception, though. Beautiful graphics, a gripping story, and an excellent battle system were all on display, proving that N64 could easily be home to a strong RPG so long as developers were willing to put in the effort. Though some of the strategy mechanics for combat could be a tad divisive, including the game’s arrangement of battalion units, Ogre Battle 64 was nonetheless the sort of role playing game that N64 needed more of.

    The only way this list could be better is if it was a “coming soon” list on the Wii U’s virtual console!

    It would also have Rayman 2, Rocket: Robot on Wheels, Turok 2, and Body Harvest on it. Oh, and James Bond: The World Is Not Enough.

    So happy to see Ridge Racer on there….

    For me the best “non-tendo” N64 game were Gauntlet Legends, Battle Tanx, Forsaken, the Bomberman games and Turok games.

    The Rush racing games from Midway were awesome, and Moral Kombat 4 which played better on N64 than the arcade version.

    The WWF games were epic on N64. They are still in my opinion better than the ones they make today

    I was going to say Ridge Racer 64 but it counts as a Nintendo developed game since it was Nintendo Software Technology, right?

    Anyway, nice list! Rogue Squadron makes my list as well.

    My own list would include some Turok representation, probably the 2nd one, Seeds of Evil. My goodness, was that game impressive! Expansion Pak for the win: those detailed graphics and enemy dismemberment blew my mind, along with the presentation values. And the music, wow.

    Rayman 2: The Great Escape was pretty awesome as well.

    The other two games on my list would have to be:
    –Rocket: Robot on Wheels (wonderful 3D platformer by Sucker Punch)
    –Shadow Man (one of the best mature games I have played that was ‘mature’ in more ways than you can imagine. This game had a massive world to explore).

    (Looks like OG75 and KisakiProject agree with me on some of my picks.)
