I never had an N64, and never really wanted one, but now with the VC I am getting an itch. I love platformers, and I'd really like to play Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie. I'm also intrigued by Jet Force Gemini. One problem, all these games were developed by Rare, now owned by Microsoft, and everything I have read points to them never appearing on the VC.
So I was looking around and I could probably snatch up a console and all of these games for around $50. But I'd be bringing a 10 year old console into my already crowded gaming pile and that just seems silly. But I might do it anyway.
(And before the first person pops in and says "emu", I like to play games in front of a tv with a proper controller.)
Other than a small initial batch of units that tended to over heat, the N64 was a very reliable and excellent console. $50 is a great price for a N64 and the games you listed. If you have a GameCube amongst your current consoles, you can use it's Composite or S-Video cable to connect a N64 as they used the same video output ports.
