Which N64 console suits you the most and what upcoming* games should you get?

*Upcoming for its time. This was a late 90s quiz.

I got Fire Orange!
You are the life of the party. You don't attract attention... you demand it! You are a great leader, self-motivated and you're always ready to jump at opportunity. You play video games that keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end, and you hate to lose. Ridge Racer® 64 and the upcoming Excitebike® 64 are the titles that you'll love to play, challenge friends and impress opponents.

Watermelon.
"Your gentleness invites hugs and smiles. Your non-confrontational attitude is always welcome and your genuineness is refreshing to those you meet. You like to be around people and your favorite pastime is hanging out with friends. Playing Mario Party 2® is the perfect way to spend the day. Make sure to keep an eye out for Kirby 64."

So what I'm taking from this is that I'm like Mario Party 2 in that I bring nothing but tears, rage, and hurt thumbs to a relationship.

The best color for you is Ice!

You are a trustworthy person who remains calm and cool under pressure. You are focused in your goals and driven in your ambitions. Video games for you meet your inner need to challenge your skills and perform under pressure. Pokémon Stadium®, which features challenging battles with Pokémon characters you've collected and trained, keeps you on top of your game, successfully competing in intense situations.

-----

To tally the score, just add the colors you answered and whichever one came up most is you. If there is no clear winner, you're a Watermelon.

Jungle
Games: Super Mario 64, Tarzan
Traits: Adventure, Platform, Seeking, Collecting, Discovering, Persisent
You love the challenge of a good adventure game. You solved The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time without breaking a sweat--although you did pick up the Official Nintendo Power Player's Guide to check for anything you might have missed. You like the idea of having to collect items just for the sake of completing every game objective. You finish every adventure game before your friends do.

Grape
Games: Command and Conquer 64, Starcraft 64
Traits: Other-worldly, Planning, Thinking, Mysterious, Deliberate, Strategy
You like a game that makes you think. You don't attack without considering the consequences of your actions, and your decisions are usually sound. You like a good puzzle and you are no stranger to RPGs, but you really love the complexity of a great strategy game. You can juggle several plans at once, and you always have a backup plan. You are rarely caught off-guard, because your mind is open to any possibility.

Fire
Games: Wrestlemania 2000, Tony Hawk Pro Skater
Traits: Extreme, Radical, Sporty, Intense, Trickster, Athletic
You leap before you look, and still pull off a perfect landing. Your friends try to make you play weak characters or teams just so they'll have a better chance of beating you, but you have the skills to win no matter what. You learn all of the coolest moves, throws and tricks way before your buddies do, and you won't spill all of your secrets--you like having that edge, at least for a while.

Ice
Games: Wave Race 64, HydroThunder
Traits: Splashy, Quick, Slick, Cool, Shortcut, Racing
You love all racing games, and some of the wet ones have really captured your attention. You like the extra challenge of a superslick track, and you don't care if there is marine wildlife in the way--you will still be the winner. You master the little tricks that give you a big advantage on the racetrack, and you're just plain fast. Your name is at the top of every racing game's high score list.

Smoke
Games: GoldenEye 007, Perfect Dark
Traits: Action, Suspense, Sneaky, Lurking, Sniper, Cloak and Dagger
You probably played "Super Spy" when you were younger--sneaking around corners and scaring the daylights out of the annoying kid next door. You like the thrill of wandering around a guarded complex, just waiting to make the first move. Your enemies don't see you coming, unless you want them to. You also enjoy playing most multiplayer games for the competition.

Watermelon
Games: You like 'em all!
Traits: Happy-go-lucky, Variety, Open, Enthusiastic, Gamer, Excited
You have been playing video games for as long as you can remember. You might have one ultra-favorite game, but you have a diverse collection and you don't stick to one type. You can find a challenge in nearly any game, and you are willing to give them all a shot. Your friends know you as an all-around gamer, and you can hold your own no matter what game you're playing.

((OOC: This version gave me Watermelon instead.))

The best color for you is Smoke!

You are a talented and sharp person, both in personality and style. You like to have your life and your surroundings well organized with everything in its proper place. Video games that stimulate both your mind and your senses are worthy forms of entertainment. For you, we have only two words: Perfect Dark®. The tactical missions of Joanna Dark will be intellectually challenging, and the non-stop, fast-paced action, thoroughly engaging.

Oh yes, battling against AI's that cheat in every way possible is most certainly intense.

Seems really easy to get Watermelon on this one.

For the first quiz
Fire Orange
You are the life of the party. You don't attract attention... you demand it! You are a great leader, self-motivated and you're always ready to jump at opportunity. You play video games that keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end, and you hate to lose. Ridge Racer® 64 and the upcoming Excitebike® 64 are the titles that you'll love to play, challenge friends and impress opponents.

I am very content with this :mrgreen: BTW Kiyoshi: Yeah, that is intense.
I got something called 'bonus round' while answering. I just picked something random, and got orange.
Spoiler: click to show

The best color for you is Jungle!

You prefer the road less traveled. Surprises and adventure aren't out of the ordinary... they are your way of life. In your video game world, you like varying challenges. You become the characters you play and immerse yourself into the environment. You would take to the smash hit Donkey Kong® 64 like it was part of your everyday routine, running through the jungle, "monkeying" around and always looking for the next big expedition!

I also got to the bonus round like Roger. Not sure if that's out of the ordinary.
