These retro games would make the Switch Online Expansion Pack worth it.
Mario Party is kind of a love-it-or-hate-it series. Its mini-games are uneven and the randomness in its design turn a lot of people off. Still, if you’re looking for a party game that even non-gamers can get into easily, it’s hard to beat.
Pokémon Stadium boiled the RPG series down into a simple turn-based fighting game, removing a lot of its charm in the process. But the appeal of seeing Pokémon in 3D and strategic combat made it a hit.
The first-person shooter Goldeneye 007 was something of an anomaly on the mostly kid-friendly N64. It had a campaign worth playing but really stuck around as one of the generation’s premier multiplayer games.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate may be the ultimate version of the game, but there’s still good reason to revisit the original. With a leaner roster and stripped-down mechanics, the simpler original is still worth playing.
While Mario Kart remains king of the kart racers, Diddy Kong Racing has a lot going for it. What it lacks in characters, it more than makes up for with a wild variety of tracks and vehicles.
Switch Online already has Star Fox 64, but there’s enough room for another great space shooter. Back in the day, Rogue Squadron was the closest you could get to feeling like you were actually in Star Wars, and it’s still a blast today.
