I don't know what your expecting from this thread but your going to get the same people who show up in every n64 thread and theyre going to post that the n64 was better because mario 64 and zelda and then continue on with their nintoddler revisionist history as usual
N64 and ps2 both had a weak library but both the n64 and the dreamcast suffered from a shitty controller.
Only thing that pulled ps2 ahead was backwards compatibility to make up for its shit library.
Seems like N64 and PS2 in their own libraries though were lacking while dreamcast had a better selection. It was more hit than miss on a lot of popular dreamcast titles while titles on N64 and PS2 didn't hold up as well.
Don't get me wrong though i loved me a bunch of PS2 and N64 games. Neither of them really outdid UTGOTY online or some DOA2 with family and friends.
Also i had a PC too at the time and got way more play time for half life and mods than most anything else.
Why? you will either never heard of them and call them shit, or call them shit anyway.
Anyway sturgeon's law applies to everything, PS2 also has hundreds of games but only 20 or 30 are actually must play and still it's a subjective matter. For example, I never like dthe GTA games, while for some people they are a must and GTA III was one of the best selling titles on PS2.
PS2, but at the same time a lot of the strength came from multiplatforms. I never even had a ps2, only played on emulators but it would be foolish to not understand the impact it had throughout the world.
I hate to sound like a nostalgiafag but it really was a great era in gaming. Technology was at a point where it was possible to create fairly big worlds and fairly detailed character models while at the same time companies were still searching for winning formulas and taking more risks in the process. AAA gaming was weird, awkward, imbalanced, and fun.
Come to think of it, the wii u library feels similar to that generation in a lot of ways which is why i enjoy it so much. In particular the platinum games and splatoon feel like modernized and vastly improved ps2 games.

>>324337596 ps2 had the most solid games of any console. immense library, great graphics for the time, quality titles in every genre, flawless controller, last gen to primarily use CRT. Reasonable pricepoint, cheap games
The biggest flaws were that it lacked 4p standard and it came before online was a huge portion of the console experience.
>>324342545 Yeah thats what I was saying, the n64 has a small but interesting library. The ps2 and ps1 offer in my opinion better libraries but the n64 is no atari jaguar, it has quite a lot of great games.
>>324342749 Hey I never said the n64 had a large library and diverse library, I just gave what came to my head. Also why I personally couldn't get into wonder project j1 or 2 I still think their well made games.
>>324343831 man early 3D gaming was rough even at the time I remember thinking it looked kinda shit but I would overlook that due to the fact that I was playing a game in an actual 3D space with CD quality music (at least on ps1)
>What was better n64 or PS2. These two are close for the best consoles ever. >unironically comparing the "10-good-games-all-the-rest-is-shit" console for people with 3 hands to the best selling home console of all time
The only consoles closer to the PS2 are the PS1 and the SNES. And the ironic thing here is the PS1 is more a SNES 2.0 than the N64 itself

>>324337596 To be honest I have a hard time choosing. Conventionally, PS2 should win because it has way more good games, which every PS2 fan loves to bring up, but I don't care for most of them at all. The N64 has very few good games but the ones I love I can replay over and over. At least with the N64 you have a few really good original games but with the PS2 it's like every mediocre game got at least 2 sequels so you have to pick through a mountain of ho-hum to find one good game.
