    I have very good memories of me and my girlfriend playing Mario Kart 64 all through the night. We would joke and laugh and beat up on each other, we eventually took it to the next level, got serious, and started making bets. I have to admit she could give me quite a run for my money at times and would sneak in some crazy/lucky wins here and there hah. This was almost 4 years back and we are still together, but it’s been a good 4 years since we have played on an N64. I have quite a nicer gaming set up these days and me and the girlfriend would get a kick out of reliving some N64 days. For times when I was alone I got lost for hours playing Super Mario 64 and Zelda. I was so proud when I beat Mario, but never came close to beating Zelda although I put so much time into it and had a lot of fun playing it. Happy birthday :]

  3. Avery Massenburg says:

    Theirs a lot of reasons I’d want a Nintendo 64, Starting with it’s controller, One of the most unique I’ve seen.. And the games are true classics, Like The Legend of Zelda Series, Smash Brothers, Star Fox, and all the others.. It would be nice to be able to play them all on their original systems!

  4. Erik says:

    Eh, why not? I’ve always wanted one.

  5. Matt K. says:

    I remember first getting my Nintendo 64, after being only exposed to a limited amount of gaming through my Sega Genesis. I remember getting Super Mario 64 and having my 10 year old mind blown by there somehow being full-rendered 3-dimension graphics, and fully recall the idling screen of Super Mario 64 where you can move his eyes and nose around with that iconic music in the background. I remember being blown away by complexities of Super Mario 64, levels such as Tick Tock Clock and Rainbow Ride. My 10 year old brain was find it hard to comprehend the strategy behind some of the more difficult Stars of those levels, and the overwhelming nerd pride I felt when I finally stuck it to Bowser and saved Peach.

    Little did I know that the marvel of Super Mario 64 was only but the beginning of my Nintendo 64 gaming experience. Games such as Banjo Kazooie, Banjo Tootie, the iconic Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Mario Kart, the blockbuster Mario Party games, and Star Fox, Nintendo 64 has essentially shaped my childhood. I remember moving away to college and taking my Nintendo 64, only to have it tragically broken by my roommate’s idiot friends one night while I was at work, and shedding tears for the system that I had for so long.

    Now, with my senior year coming to a close, I could think of nothing more fitting than sitting back and playing one of those old games once more. I would, if I won, look forward most to playing that iconic Super Mario 64 once more, experiencing the levels with a more mature mind, while still appreciating the wonders that enticed that 10 year old me to play my Nintendo 64 wee hours into the night.

    I remember first encountering Infendo and Nintendosforsale.com and realizing that my wish to own a Nintendo 64 again could actually come true. While I am working a part time job, I have been saving scraps wherever I could to try and afford the system with the appropriate accessories. Winning this would be the world to me.

    Finally, I’d like to wish Essel a very, very happy birthday! Lets hope for many, many more years gaming! 😀

  6. Hanny Kinz says:

    Well….tbh I never had a N64 before. When I was a kid I never really played videogames so much it didn’t interest me at the time. It’s sad to say that I got into videogames more at a later age, 13. It would mean a lot to actually have AN experience with one of the moist classical systems yet!

    And about this website. I have yet to tour around it fully, but I already know some great people such as Scott. Even though I am not a full member of this site, I can see what Scott posts on facebook and it amazes me how much this site has grown!

    So good luck to anyone who wants this 🙂

  7. Zero says:

    When I was younger I used to use all 4 controllers are once to play Kirby and the Crystal Shards wand battle game where you shot a blast out and it would knock away the tiles you could stand on.

  8. Nick Pacheco says:

    To me as a gamer the N64 has a special meaning, being the first system I have ever played. Although I didn’t own one growing up but one of my mom’s long time friend stacy had one. Me and her two sons would always take turns playing Super Mario 64, which in fact SM64 was not only my very first video game I ever played but also my first Mario game to ever play too. I only played very few games on it though, most of the big ones like Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, Goldeneye, and variuos othrers. But I’d really like to play Goldeneye, I’ve played the newer updated version for the Wii and I liked it. So the original has to be just as good, or better. And happy birthday too, Essel. Now give me my N64! :p

  9. King Aaron says:

    My grandma needs a new N64. How else will she play Harvest Moon 64 for 18 hours a day?

  10. JoelIsDrinkingABarrelOfLemonade says:

    The only Nintendo console system I used to have was the Super Nes(or was it the Nes?). I mainly have Sony consoles, so if I win this Nintendo 64 console, you can count me in on loving Nintendo even more because I want to play the awesome 64 games like Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time, Super Smash Bros., and Star Fox 64!! ;D Plus, i’d love this website even more, too!! ;D And Super Happy Birthday To Essel!!

  11. Joe Adams says:

    I miss my N64. I have fond memories of playing all the Mario games and my brother beating Ocarina of Time because Ganon scared the bejeesus out of me! I remember playing Mischief Makers and “Shake Shake”ing everything! Playing Super Smash Bros. was how I dealt with crap at school and it allowed me to take out my frustration. I miss Donkey Kong 64 and Banjo-Kazooie (granted the latter is on XBLA, but money is very tight right now what with student loans and all). I miss Glover as well!

    Every time a new Nintendo console came out, my parents made me trade to get the new console. So when the GameCube came out, I was sad to leave my N64… and even though I got the new console, my heart still had a void left behind from the cartridge days. Nothing compared, it was my own little escape. That is why I continue to play games today!

    Oh and a big happy birthday to you! I feel as though we should be giving you something and not you giving us something! 🙂

  12. Jesse CookPierson says:

    I have never owned a Nintendo console in my life because my parents used to shelter me quite a bit. I have only ever owned handhelds such as the DS Lite, Game Boy Pocket, DSi, and currently, the 3DS. I always feel really guilty whenever people talk about a video game that I never played such as OoT or Starfox 64 (even though I played the 3D remakes). My first gaming experience was at my best friend’s house where we’d play Super Smash Brothers on the 64 for hours. I would really appreciate a blessing like this, and I would love to actually own Ocarina of Time, one of the greatest games ever made. I don’t expect you to pick me, but it would be amazing if you did and would make me incredibly happy.

    -Jesse

    P.S. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SCOTT!!!

  13. JoelIsDrinkingABarrelOfLemonade says:

    I want a Nintendo 64 to play The Legend of Zelda:Ocarina of Time, Super Smash Bros., Star Fox 64, Mario Kart 64, and much muc more!! I really want the Nintendo 64!! ;D and Happy Birthday Essel!!

  14. patricia says:

    hmmm, winning a 64 would be great because mine broke in my move back to the states in ’08 (gamecube too) and my children have never had the pleasure of playing mario 64 or ocarina of time. to be honest, i really only want to win it so i can play goldeneye against my brother in the facility with proxity mines and annihilate him. again. for old times sake. but, its for the kids really 😉

  15. MikeB says:

    I would love to win. I think the N64 had the best games, and I have great memories playing Donkey Kong 64 with my brothers, and also i loved to play Banjo-Tooie. That’s why I would love to win

  16. Diagoras says:

    I once had a Nintendo 64. My parents ended up giving it away, since they got a Gamecube, and we wouldn’t “need it.” I still miss it. I enjoyed playing Tetrisphere, Smash Bros, Mario Party, etc, etc. I had always wanted to play Jet Force Gemini, though, and never got the opportunity. It looked like a lot of fun, even though I had never played a shooter before. Sadly, my parents wouldn’t let me play it (I was 12 at the time.) So I just had to let it go and move on. Maybe one day I’ll get to play it.

  17. Andy C. says:

    I love infendo because you guys give me Nintendo news. I don’t have to wade through other system news to get to the good stuff. You guys also do things like these giveaways.
    I have very fond memories of N64. It was the first time I played tony hawk and also the first time I played a Zelda game. I’ve been in love Hyrule ever since. I would love to get another chance to play this awesome system.

  18. Lord Lemmy says:

    I have a 64. The consoles I’d want would be the NES and the GCN (since my original GCN was stolen when my brother-in-law borrowed it).

  19. Jason Orlando says:

    I loved my nintendo 64 when i was a kid and i passed it down to my nephews when they were old enough. and now i have a daughter that i want to get one for as a starter system as she gets older. and i would love to have a system to play golden eye on that was my favorite of all time i miss it alot

  20. Josh says:

    one of the best memories i had with an n64 was playing pokemon stadium. the F**king clefairy minigame made my head hurt, though

  21. Jess says:

    Oooh, NINTENDO 64!!! One of my favorite games was Beetle Adventure Racing. I’m not quite sure why, as it’s not known for being anything more than an advertisement. I think it’s because I would ignore the racing and explore the stages.

  22. Matt W. says:

    Ah, the n64 was my first mario experience many years ago. My uncle had one (he was adopted so as I was 10 he was only 14) and when I visited my grandparents he showed it to me and we would play in the first level Bob-omb Battlefield and fly with the wing cap and try to out do each other with fancy flying and skimming the ground or walls. Sadly after he went to college I went back to my grandparents to play the n64 but they had sold it. I still have the super mario 64 cartridge as well as donkey kong 64 as I borrowed them to play at a friends house. THey are in my desk still. it has been 6 years since I last got to play them… I would love to do so again.

    I’ve been listening to the podcast since before the 100th episode. I love the community here even though I rarely participate.

    Happy Birthday!

  23. Junior T. says:

    First off, Happy Birthday Essel!!!!!!! I like listening to the podcast. I haven’t been on this community long, but I have been a fan of Nintendo for close to 16 years and like what is discussed on this site.
    I never really owned an N64 but I do have lots of fond memories playing it at my friend’s place. It was the first Nintendo system I ever touched(I owned a Sega Genesis at the time), and I remember get beaten in almost every game my friend challenged me to. The only game I beat my friend in was Mario Kart 64. I’m a better gamer now, but that victory I got from playing on the N64 is what got me into gaming. I’ve beaten him in every version of Mario Kart released after the 64 version ever since. If I was to win the N64, the first game I would play on it would definitely be Mario Kart 64!!! I’d probably also give my friend a call and challenge him to a few rounds.

  24. Warren says:

    I need another N64 – my system (originally bought the week it launched) Died in a the great desert flood of 2007. I haven’t been able to procure another, but have wanted one. I still have a few games for the system, including a Gold colored Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

    What is my favorite memory?

    The first game I bought for the system wasn’t Mario, but Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. I’d often take my n64 over to my friend’s house so we could both play the system. (Eventually we bought Goldeneye and had a heck of time with Multiplayer, but I digress…) Turok was the first game that I played that really had rag doll type deaths for the enemies. When you killed one, often they would flop down on the ground and blood would spew from their necks as they died.

    My friend’s sister would sit and watch us play – everytime an enemy died, she would just cackle in sheer giddiness at the death of these poor virtual soldiers. I loved killing things and just hearing her laugh at the violently dying soldiers.

    Good times!

  25. Warren says:

    Oh – I love infendo because I like seeing an Independent game site’s view on Nintendo and their products. Been reading it for years now…

  26. Justin R. says:

    Well i always knew that this N64 console was gonna be awsome from the moment i first saw it and i got the Jungle Green one that i think came with DK64 (my fav N64 GAME IS SSB) years back and i would LOVE to have a N64 BACK and enjoy my awsome games again on that peice of beauty console.
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

  27. Daniela Ramirez says:

    I love Infendo because it is both informative and opinionated. I love the N64 because it was the very first console I played and it also initiated my love for videogames. The very first game I played was Super Mario 64. Every time I hear the Super Mario theme or the Starfox theme I get very nolstagic. They remind me of the times I used to get home on Sundays after church and always find my dad sitting in front of the TV playing to the fullest. I remember sitting next to him and getting intrigued and amazed as much as he was. I will forever be a fan of Nintendo. <3 Oh and Happy Birthday. 🙂

  28. Karan Sohal says:

    My favourite N64 moment was playin ZELDA OoT!!!!!

  29. Royer DLS says:

    Infendo was my first “nintendo blog” I ever visited. Back when IGN had Cassamassina, I was linked to this site when the “Nintendo ON” video was gaining hype through one of the comments in a story he posted.. It was during this time that nintendo had only codenamed the wii Revolution. I was very intrigued by the article that I kept pressing “previous articles” to see what else this blog had posted. I was immediately immersed that a person had as much passion as I did for this company. Stories ranged from rumors to funny stories to game recommendations etc… Every weekend I was treated with what the writer was playing or what he intended to play. My most favorite memory : I remember Laughing so hard once that i accidentally spilled Dr.Pepper on my laptop. Oddly enough, what made me laugh my butt off was not from any of the infendo writers but from one of the readers. Sony had just announced Playstation Move and a reader was so upset that he had nothing but horrible words for them. His long comment went from sony Deep throating Reggie to a plethora of bad words accusing sony of being everything BUT original. I visit this site at least one time a day. i know Im a fan when my pregnant girlfriend insults me screaming “Im here looking at online sites for baby accessories and baby shower/nursery ideas and yoUR tO bUsy reading INFENDO!!” She asked,”what the hell is that site any way?!” I simply smiled and said “Intelligent passion for all things Nintendo”. 🙂

  30. Jamie Budden says:

    Well, first of all, Happy Birthday ^_^
    I didn’t have an N64 when it first came out, at the time, I had a PS1.
    It wasn’t till 7 years later that I picked up a cheap, second hand N64 with a copy of Pokemon Stadium.
    A day later, the game shop near me was selling cheap N64 Games, so I quickly brought OOT and SM64. I may have been late, but the games still played fantastically, and I have such memories of them.
    But, 5 years ago, I had to sell my N64, along with my Gamecube and most my games.
    I didn’t feel too bad about It, because I had a Wii, so I could get the games I missed, and I did. But it just wasn’t the same as hooking up my old N64 to a TV, playing with that weird-but-awesome shaped controller.

  31. Out of every console ever made, whether it be from atari, sega, sony, or nintendo itself, the Nintendo64 reigns supreme. I would choose to play this over any console any day. I remember first palying Super Smash bros. and the original tony hawk (blue cartridge). When Zelda: Ocarina of Time came out i spent days and nights awake playing until i couldnt keep my eyes open anymore. Donkey Kong 2 (Yellow cartridge) was an amazing follow up to the original as well, along with Mario Cart 64 and Super Mario 64. Almost every single game made for this console had changed the face of gaming everywhere. I have the best memories as a child growing up with this console and i would still have one if my ex-girlfriend did not steal it from me after breaking up with her. So please infendo, help me continue to relive these amazingly made games on the greatest system ever created. Thank you.

  32. Richard Swafford says:

    Absoultly love your website!!! I check your site several times throughout the day for my daily Wii U fix! N64 was awesome! Loved the ‘open world’ 3d games, i.e. Mario 64, Donkey Kong 64, Banjo, Conker, etc. My favorite game was Mario 64. My friends and myself use to see how many cannon shots we do continusouly without ever ‘walking’. I think 6 shots in the first world was our record. I think we had more fun doing our own thing in the worlds than actually playing the levels. lol. By the way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY as well!! Keep up the good job on all the postings!!! 🙂

  33. Isaiah Tyler says:

    N64! Wow, so much love for this console!
    I loved the old Rainbow Six. My brother and I would take turns playing a mission, and give each other crap for how we decided to beat each level. I always went for stealth and avoided killing as much as possible, but my older brother would quickly run out of magazines and grenades and often he’d have to finish off the mission using only his sidearm.
    I wanted to die when he left for college and took the N64 with him. Thank god for Pokemon!

    BTW Happy Birthday! Mine was on the 10th! No games this year though… Did you get anything good?

  34. Jackie Larose says:

    Happy (belated)birthday Scott! I gotta have this N64 so I can play my Mario Kart!!! xD

  35. Hubert says:

    I like Infendo because it’s rhyme with Nintendo…

    The best experiences I had with my 64 was… oh my god there is so much.

    1 – Played Harvest Moon 64 with 2 friend2, we were playing a season each non-stop for 2 weeks
    2 – Burned my palm with Mario Party 1, curse you Tug-O-War (RIP Controllers)
    3 – Goldeneye and Perfect Dark in multiplayer, don’t have to say nothing more.
    4 – Getting all the stars in Mario 64.
    5 – Playing Banjo-Kazooie and never finished it yet, shame on me.
    6 – Playing Donkey Kong 64 and finishing it, shame on me.
    7 – Balloon Battle on colored cube in Mario Kart 64, damn that was good.

  36. Opie says:

    I have never owned a N64, but i have wanted too, jsut never dropped the $ to do it. it would complete my collection of Nintendo systems. The games I would most liek to play are Ocarina of time and Starfox 64

  37. AlfredWegener says:

    I remember very fondly playing Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart 64 with my friends growing up. Great times… We also played Mario Party 1 and 2, and made it into a real competition practically. Yeah, so I remember having some good times with my friends growing up.

    Oh, and hey, happy birthday Essel!

  38. blusasuke says:

    only time i was able to play a 64 was at my buddies house LONG LONG time ago. Only games we played was StarFox, Killer Instinct Gold, Golden Eye and Mario 64. Also besides the DSi and 3DS this is the only Nintendo system i haven’t personally owned.
    First game I would play when i got it would be Mario Kart 64. then there’s always Banjo Kazooie, Conkers Bad Fur Day, the list goes on and on.

  39. Kurt says:

    I check out infendo to keep up on all the latest Nintendo news. Also, infendo radio is a great listen. My favourite memory of the n64 was playing Mario 64 over and over just to ride the koopa shell!

  40. Alejandro says:

    I truly love you infendo you are my #1 source to Nintendo news. I love the giveaways you have, and since you are going to have a N64 giveaway you made my whole day better. I remember the first time I played the N64, it was at my neighbors house we were playing GoldenEye 007 or The world Is Not Enough. But once I pick up that controller my whole life changed. I fell in love with Nintendo. That day was one of the best days in my life and the best part was my neighbor sold me his N64 the same day for $20. Happy Happy Birthday to you!!!

  41. Anuj Vij says:

    I love infendo mainly because its my number 1 source of information on new video games and when they release. I also like to read the reviews on all the different games that come out so i know what to get and what game stinks.

    My favorite Nintendo 64 experience would have to be the time i went to my friends house many years back and he introduced me to the nintendo 64 as well as the game super mario 64. we played that game for hours. Ever since then i have always wanted a nintendo 64 just so i could get my very own super mario 64 game.

  42. Daniella Dos Santos says:

    I have absolutely LOVED Infendo ever since I first found it! I have Bookmarked it and i check it every single day. It is my main source to know what’s going on with Nintendo and other great video games. Infendo provides the best information out of all the ones i’ve seen. As for the N64, I have never had one or played one but I have ALWAYS wanted one. My older brothers are always talking about their fond memories and i want to have some of my own with this great Nintendo System:) Oh and Happy Birthday I hope you get to have many more and enjoy this one!:D So I would be extremely grateful and blessed if i got this N64. Good luck to all and God Bless!

  43. Daniella Dos Santos says:

    Oh and I forgot to mention that I really really really want to play Ocarina of Time on the N64, since it is my favorite game:)

  44. Michael Undercoffer says:

    Aww man, I remember my old N64! The hours I would spend playing Diddy Kong Racing, Zelda, Mario, And of course, Conkers Bad Fur Day. I remember I would have a few buds over, and play Mario Party! Man, I miss that… I swear, The Nintendo 64 is THE BEST system created. Ever. I really really want to finish Bad fur day though. Heard the game teaches a valuable life lesson. I just miss the all nighters, with goldeneye, mario party, and bad fur day! 😀 Those were the times…

  45. loganb says:

    I actually don’t want to be picked, b/c I have one and I figure someone else deserves it. But, I’d like to share my N64 memories.

    I grew up with the NES, but I was very young. I was about 4 or 5 when I first played the N64. I had been playing side-scrollers before then, even that young. The game was Mario 64, and to say that it blew my mind would be an understatement. I had no idea a game could be like this; I had never seen anything like it. I so distinctly remember running around the castle ground as Mario, it felt so free and fun. I’ve always been in love with the character of Mario, and this brought a whole new level to him. I couldn’t put the game down.

    The N64 I played was a family friend’s, but years later when I was 12, they gave me the 64 and all the games they had! Including Mario! So now I own the copy of the game I played in ’96. I could write a paper on my N64 memories, but that is my first one. I still love the look of the 64 graphics. They feel real, and not polished. Almost a gritty feel that no other Mario game has had. No games will ever look like that again. They will always hold a nostalgic place in my heart and I’m glad I got to experience the 64 era.
