Question Existential Chocolate Marmots

This post has nothing to do with tundra rodents. Live with it.

I have a confession to make. I'm not really a video game player.

Don't get me wrong...I have a Nintendo 64, and I play two video games on it much of my free time. I've spent hours flying around Rogue Squadron and Pilot Wings (another 64 game, for any who haven't seen it), and enjoy it enough to visit this website daily just to talk about it. I suppose that makes me a video game player of sorts...but I just can't get into other types of games.

I've watched others play the many incarnations of Mario Brothers and company, and all the silly "character jumping around" games that overstimulate many modern children. The racing games (except Pod Racers, which I liked) just don't excite me all that much, since there are enough REAL obstacles with the drivers in my town. The fighting games I don't get at all--why not get the equipment, find a sparring partner and try it for real (in a safe context, that is)? But FLYING games...!

I always wanted to be a pilot. The only problem is...I'm afraid of flying. Is that crazy, or what? My solution came when I discovered Pilot Wings, a flight simulator for the 64. I spent months flying the gyrocopter, learning the ins and outs of video flight. When Rogue Squadron came out, I just HAD to get it...I'd wanted to be Luke Skywalker when I was a little kid, after all!

So, I'm wondering; taking my reasons for liking this kind of game into consideration, are there any other games for the 64 that my fellow video game players can recommend I try? I'm getting tired of two games I've already found.

Note: I do intend to set up my PC to play XWA some day. Right now I'm looking for N64 games I might like...

Thanks a bunch! You guys are swell.
