Same. Don't get me wrong, I love the N64. I've been hankering to play one for awhile. Thinking about picking up some used games on the cheap to go through them again. I guess what kind of killed me about the N64 was 1) lack of 2D games 2) lack of RPGs. SNES was more or less entirely 2D and had a great deal or excellent RPGs.
That's more or less the same as my list, except I've owned (or currently own) every one of those systems. :P Plus the Turbo Grafx 16. Decent system that had a few good games (like the Bonk games).
Sega Saturn was pretty slept on too. Especially the Dreamcast. My favorite game on Dreamcast is a billiards game called "Maximum Pool". I've probably drained hundreds of hours on that game. Me and my friend used to go head-to-head in some serious Snooker matches while smoking copious amounts of marijuana.
I don't really play games that much anymore. I'm good for some rounds on Left 4 Dead, Counter-Strike, or Team Fortress 2 every once in awhile. Sometimes I'll come across a game and get hooked. But these days, I like simpler games that I can just jump into, blow some **** up or solve a few puzzles, and quit. Games that have require a 3 hour tutorial just to play it don't appeal to me.
