Ranking of Best N64 Games – RAVE Reviews

RAVE Reviews, the innovative site that publishes entertaining rankings based on advanced data-driven analysis, has published its ranking of the “Best N64 Games,” available at https://www.ravereviews.org/entertainment/best-n64-games/.

The release of the Nintendo 64 was arguably the greatest thing to happen in the ’90s. You could disagree and say it was the rise of the legendary slap bracelet or the release of the internet, but let’s be real. Nothing is more satisfying than completing the Water Temple after 9 hours of wandering in circles. Coming in at #1 on RAVE’s Best N64 Games ranking, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time offers a truly unique adventure for gamers. We just recommend hitting up YouTube once you get to the Water Temple. For gamers who seek something besides a heroic adventure, RAVE added categories to cover genres such as shooters, racing, sports, and party games.

In determining which games to feature, RAVE compared reviews from multiple online sources and then added in factors such as gameplay hours, multiplayer options, and game originality.
