Raspberry Pi 2 Nintendo 64 Emulation: 25 N64 Games Tested

Raspberry Pi 2 Nintendo 64 Emulation: 25 N64 Games Tested with RetroPie 2.6.

See below for links to timestamp links to individual games. Emulation start links to the video when emulation is started, Gameplay start links to when I start playing (skipping intros etc.)

I had an interesting issues with fuzzy/glitchy text on some games, which was not there originally. I believe there will be a fix for this with some digging since it was sporadic, but for the purpose of this video I still considered a game playable if the text had the graphical glitch.

Make sure to subscribe and look out for my tutorial on how to set up your Raspberry Pi 2 as the ultimate emulation machine.

I have a physical copy of all games tested and this was done purely as a proof of concept. Please respect the original creators and do not download ROMs and use only your personal physical backups. Thanks!
