Good ol' Rare. Many of us have fond memories of Rare and their games growing up on the Nintendo 64; classic games such as
Killer Instinct Gold, Perfect Dark, and Jet Force Gemini. Many consider that stream of time when Rare was developing for Nintendo to be the "Golden Years of Gaming." Unfortunately, in 2002, Rare was acquired by Microsoft, and the Golden Years came to an end. Rare would go on to make such lackluster experiences such as Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts and Kinect Sports.
So what were the best games that were ever produced by Rare? In fairness to Microsoft, I should mention that all of these games will be from the Nintendo 64 ... not that I planned it out that way
per se, it just kind of turned out that way (for obvious reasons). I should note that this is part two of a two-part article. The first part published Saturday, February 15th, 2014.
For reference's sake, my number five game was
Blast Corps, my number four was GoldenEye 007, and my number three was Conker's Bad Fur Day. For the rest of this list, jump on inside!
