My few favorite games in no order whatsoever.
Sonic The Hedgehog 2- A classic platform game for the Genesis (and on its zillion ports on those plug-n-play games to Sonic Collections). The game set the standard for a classic Sonic game, fast paced and challenging. Not only that, I liked the Emerald Hill Zone song...
Super Mario Bros. 3- On a par with Super Mario World as the best Mario game. What game would have Mario sporting garb a guy at a Furry convention would wear as a power up. Featured some great level design and a variety of power-ups, SMB3 is a game every Nintendo freak should pick up and play.
Super Smash Bros. Melee- Probably the best cartoony fighting game ever made. This game is addicting like crack and had some great graphics showing off the Gamecube's power. This game added a LOT more features, modes, and other Nintendo nicknacks, easily blowing the original N64 version out of the water. Thank god for the Revolution sequel with Online play
. But it still remains in my top 10.
Rush 2: Extreme Racing USA- If you wanted a serious street racing game for the N64... this was the Burnout of the N64. This was way back when the Rush racing series was realistic and not licensed with a "Pimp My Ride/West Coast Customs" endorsement or sent 50 years into the future. No, instead, this game was all street racing across various tracks in the US. It also had a great multiplayer mode with a stunt course that was always fun. Regardless, I wish more people picked up this game for the N64.
Pokemon Gold and Silver- Alright, I admit, I was one of those brainwashed 10 year olds 6 years ago that picked up this game. I remembered that moment where I went to Wal-Mart on the morning of October 15th, 2000. Ended up getting the first copy of the game sold and became a pocket favorite of mine. Although I have no interest in this stupid thing anymore, I had to admit, I liked those games.
Super Mario World- Tied with SMB3 for best Mario title in my opinion. This was an epic Mario game that had quite a few hard spots such as the Bowser boss battle, Extra levels, and finding out how to get the hell out of Forest of Illusion. A great Mario game and marks the first appearance of everybody's favorite dinosaur, Yoshi.
