I’ve left out the Sega Saturn and other also-rans because I don’t consider them serious contenders. I’ll start with the advantages of each system before announcing my verdict at the end. So without further ado, I give you Console Wars: The Fifth Generation—N64 vs. PS1. For me, it's about which console left a better retro gaming legacy.

Perhaps the most obvious advantage of the PlayStation over its whole lifespan is the depth of its game library. While only about 387 games were released for the N64, the PS1 offered over 1,100 titles (in North America). To put this in context, the PS1’s library was impressively large for its era while the N64’s was small even by the standards of the previous generation.

11 Video Games That Got Banned and Why
Censorship – it’s a hot button issue in the video game world right now. When developers alter their vision to better suit the needs of the market, some gamers treat it like a knife to their heart. But the alternative might just be worse. All around the world, video games have been pulled from store shelves because they were just too much for the community to handle.

Bethesda does not and will not block the sale of pre-owned games. The issue in this case is that the seller offered a pre-owned game as “new” on the Amazon Marketplace.

We do not allow non-authorized resellers to represent what they sell as “new” because we can’t verify that the game hasn’t been opened and repackaged. This is how we help protect buyers from fraud and ensure our customers always receive authentic new product, with all enclosed materials and warranty intact.

Listen, we all know it and it’s been discussed a million times already – the Star Wars prequels aren’t exactly cinematic gold. You hear me Jar Jar? Nobody likes you Jar Jar! Luckily, the same fate didn’t befall all of the video-game tie-ins for the Star Wars prequels.

Following in the footsteps of Rogue Squadron, Battle for Naboo lets you play as Captain Kael and Lt. Sykes while you fight, fly and shoot your way over vast terrains and engage in several intense dogfights.

Conker’s Bad Fur Day sets aside the traditional formula for Rare’s 3D platformers – it features very little item collection that was central to games like Donkey Kong 64 – and instead focuses more on the action. You’ll run, jump and explore context sensitive mechanics (areas with giant ‘B’ marks) that give Conker a varied set of powers. At the start of the game, pressing B in one of these areas leads to our lovely squirrel drinking some hangover medicine after an all-night bender, a task which many of us can relate to intimately.

The SNES Super Scope & Everything you need to Know! -
To paraphrase 19th Century British playwright Oscar Wilde, the SNES Super Scope was awesome. Even if he never said that, he should have. Because it was.
Sadly, the Super Scope has been lost to the cruel march of time, which means it’s also been lost to a generation of gamers who grew up with millions of polygons per second rather than 16 bits total. Yes, to many this “accessory” is a relic, but it is one that needs to be dug up and revisited. The below excavation serves to bring some facts to light that validate the aforementioned awesomeness of the Super Scope. http://ow.ly/3ksO30kHnfM #RetroGaming #SNES

1995 was a landmark year for video games. The Playstation was only a few months old, and Sony was looking to make a comeback after Nintendo and the SNES had been trouncing their products.

32-bit systems were on the rise, and Sega was now getting into the game with the Sega Saturn. Due to the massive success of games like Donkey Kong Country, the Super Nintendo was still a popular player in the genre.
