Happy birthday to one of the greatest video game consoles of all time, the Nintendo 64.

The console officially launched in North America on Sept. 26, 1996, three months after debuting in Japan.

The N64 featured state-of-the-art 64-bit technology – but Nintendo’s decision to use cartridges instead of discs meant the games couldn’t hold as much content as Sony’s PlayStation.

Some of the console’s most popular games: Super Mario 64GoldeneyeMario Kart 64Donkey Kong 64Super Smash Bros, and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

What’s your all-time favorite N64 game?  What was your first video game console?
