A little bit about us

And by 'us', I pretty much mean 'me'. I grew up with the Nintendo 64 as my first home console back in 1998 I want to share my obsession with the Nintendo 64 with the world. I started collecting games again after discovering all the people that review retro games and their culture sometime in 2008. Ever since, I have been developing my collection by getting games for several platforms and playing through them when I have the chance. Because of this, I've been able to reflect on how these games age and how they still hold up to today's standards. Enough about that, let's just have fun and play some N64!
