I had to that that a lot too, to beat more than a few minigames in Mario Party. Got a few nice looking blisters becuase of it.
The N64 was a pretty decent system. But like James said, it was doomed from the start. It does have it's share of good games though, like Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Paper Mario, Mario Kart, Starfox, Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness, and some interesting ones like Mischief Makers. In the past few months I've doubled my collection, now that the games are hella cheap. There are still a few ones that I want to get, like Perfect Dark and Mario Party 2 (The best one, IMO).
I also think the analog stick is terrific, even better than the Gamecube's. That shit is way too sensitive.
