I don't really know why but I've been playing my N64 a shit ton lately, and I've decided to buy some games for it that I want.
I just got Doom 64 in the mail, this is the first time I've ever played the game on actual hardware and not emulation.. it's much, much better than playing it on an emulator. (music and some effects are kind of fucked up on emulators.)
I also got S-video cables in the mail for it, which on an HDTV looks much sharper than composite. I figured it would look better since everybody in the reviews said as much, but I'm pretty pleased to have my expectations exceeded.
I bought an extension cord for the controller.. and a replacement analog stick.
As anyone who has played a great deal of N64 could tell you, the default stick is prone to wearing out.
I've read some mixed reviews about this stick, but those seem to mostly stem from it not feeling exactly like the old analog and feeling more like a gamecube analog.. which suits me fine, that analog was great.
