Seems like we've already done this before...

Anywho, to Zero a system is only as good as its game library. That said, as much as Zero loves his N64, he thinks the PSX was the better system. And that system is like gaming heaven for an RPG fan, which Zero happens to be. Zero did like the N64 controller better, but only 'til the Dual Shock came out.

Like Zero said, a console is only as good as it's game library.

That said, both consoles have good selections, so really it all comes down to what you're into. PS1 had the RPGs and FPS's and N64 had the (good) platformers (though the Crash Bandicoot series was awesome on PS1), and the (good) racers and everything else.

Hit the spot. Multiplayer is WAY better on N64 especally. Controller. Kinda like N64's more if it weren't for the control stick. Never been a huge fan of the PS design's on controllers.

I like them both.
Neither is better, they both have many faults.
I refuse to pick sides.

Lol, Nintendo is always better though.

As much as I like the N64, I've had far more memorable times with the Playstation, MGS, Final Fantasy, Crash, Syphon Filter, Megaman X4-X6, Legends 1&2, Legends of Dragoon, Tekken....

I think each one has their own advantages and disadvantages. Their library of games, their controllers, their sound quality, and their graphical power are unique and you cannot compare and contrast them because they are so unique.

PS1 = N64

To each his own.

Cosmic Dust is an unknown quantity at this point

There is simply no competition for me its the PS1 all day long and as a retro gamer of all the consoles i have ever played i simply put the N64 third from bottom for quality games (only above the intellivision and Vectrex).
So i apologize if this sounds biased in any way but i always feel the N64 Vs PS is an interesting thread/poll on forums.

Games-PS
The PS had too many good games for me to mention and a lot of games which broke new ground.
The problem with N64 games is that the games on the system that were really good were just awsome but they were very few and the rest of the games had little quality about them at all,i thought the best games were mostly first person shooters and Wrestling games.
Perfect Dark 64 is one of the best games ever made though,other games i felt were okay are Golden Eye,Turok 2,Super Mario 64,Quake II,Resident Evil 2 and Pod Racer.
I also felt that games that were made classic on the Snes like Star Fox,F-Zero,Zelda,Pilot Wings,Mario Kart were no better or even worse on the N64.

controller-PS
Main thumb stick on N64 was too fragile and would loose `centre ref point` after a lot of use.

multiplayer-N64
Had alot of fun with Doom on PS link-up but for convenience the N64 gets it easy with Goldeneyemulti-player which is simply classic!

graphics-PS
The graphics engine on the PS did get dated very quickly,perhaps a couple of years or less but the anti-aliasing used on the N64 was terrible so the graphics often had little detail when viewed close-up,especially with walls and floors and other textures.
Expansion Pak helped a little.

loading times-N64
Cart Vs Disc=not a fair comparison

appearance-PS
Grey and rectangular or green and shaped like a toaster?
