The Nintendo 64 Is The Most Popular Retro Console At GameStop

The American retailer GameStop has recently started buying and selling retro games console. In a survey of their PowerUp Rewards members, the company asked which console they were most interested in. While practically every single games console was an option, Nintendo dominated the list with five of the top ten systems. While Nintendo 64 came top, the NES, Game Boy and Game Boy Advance all placed as well. Check out the list below.

1. Nintendo 64
2. Nintendo Entertainment System
3. Super NES
4. PlayStation
5. Sega Genesis
6. Xbox
7. Sega Dreamcast
8. Sega Saturn
9. Game Boy
10. Game Boy Advance



    1. What are they supposed to take exactly? You’re getting excited because 20+ year old Nintendo consoles are in high demand? Too bad you can’t say that about new Nintendo consoles

  1. Huh… I thought the SNES would be top pick. It is for me. But I still own mine. I just want games for it.

  2. Like always, my local Gamestop doesn’t have ANY retro games. Fortunately, there’s a new EntertainMart store that recently opened. Which has retro games dating all the way back to Atari 2600 and Odyssey 2.

    Back in the day, the N64 was awesome. But looking back (and comparing every console), the N64 had the most problems of any console. I hated the controls, all of my memory paks got corrupted and erased for no reason, the graphics were too dark and blurry, everything was too polygonal (square) etc.

  3. Overrated console that didn’t age well, had shit controllers, and very limited amount of good games that haven’t already been ported to other consoles or aren’t overshadowed by games that came after it (OOT, Majora’s Mask, Paper Mario, Mario 64, Kirby 64, GOLDEN EYE 007 which is terrible now, Smash, and mario party) are prime examples

  4. I LOVE the N64- it had so many instant classics like Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, Banjo-Kazooie, Star Fox 64, and some hidden gems like Snowboard Kids, and Bomberman 64 the Second Attack.

    Great times. I miss my old N64, stupidly sold it at a garage sale.

  5. Everyone has an opinion. Great console, great controls. All relative to it’s time of release, of course. Set some standards that hold to this day. Some of the greatest multiplayer experiences I’ve ever had, bar none. Always remember relative time frame (if that’s even possible with you, damn whippersnappers)…. i.e. no one will argue that a Ford model T is better than any modern car, but it sure was innovative compared to a horse and buggy. And noticeable software not already mentioned, uhhhh…. F-Zero X all fucking day. Best of the series, imho. GX coulda been, but snakeing killed it dead. Made competition no fun and fairly irrelevant.

  6. Just putting it out there….. to this day there is not a single game going that can compete with face to face multiplayer like Mario Kart 64

    Goldeneye came close (we would set it to pistols 1 shot ko) true hardcore experience.

    Diddy Kong racing was amazing but nothing beats MK 64…. nothing!

    Viva La N64

  7. Eh. N64 has a handful of good games, most of which don’t really hold up anymore. It’s also a terribly expensive system to collect for, most games average $30-$60 so good luck finding anything worth playing for under $20.
