Retro Nintendo gaming = fun times

Advantages: Goldeneye Goldeneye Goldeneye Goldeneye Goldeneye....and the wonderful sight of a cartridge!
Disadvantages: Bulky controller, no in built memory
The N64 was the last console to not use discs, and the sight of a cartridge sticking out the top of a console is long gone never to return. Yet a cartridge held excitement (and still) does: a cartridge could only mean school was over and gaming time was here!
The main thing going for the N64 was the amazing Goldeneye, which me and some friends actually got out a few months ago and still had a blast on. There is yet to be a multiplayer game as good at it, and if you can pick up a cheap N64 it is worth it for that experience alone. The controller is also unusual these days, with the one joy stick in the middle necessitating a third 'handle' down the middle of the controllers. Somewhat bulky and awkward to hold.
If you want a retro console the PS2 maybe has the better games going for it, but Nintendo have arguably never made a bad console and this is still a great buy.
Summary: Worth it if you used to have one, if you never had one before go for the PS2
