Remember what the internet was like in 2001? If you don’t, check out the Japanese Nintendo 64 website. The site is still live, and it’s a reminder of internet yesteryear.

This is a time when images were small and backgrounds were tacky.

There are pages explaining the N64 controller and different hardware variations.

In case you wondered how the Nintendo 64's “new controller” worked.

Each game has its own page, too.
