The lights are on
Last week on Replay, the gang got into a heated argument that involved Banjo Kazooie, Super Mario 64, and 3D platforming in general. One of the titles that came up was Rare's Donkey Kong 64, which received decidedly mixed reactions upon its release. Thirteen years later, we decided to throw it into the Nintendo 64 to see how it holds up.
Watch below to see Tim Turi, Ben Hanson, Andrew Reiner, and myself continue our discussion about the era's platformers.

The afro ape is the best!
This game basically sums up my childhood...Spent so many hours (weeks maybe) just playing this.
I always just ran around and died haha
I think I need to dig up my N64. It's time to KICK SOME TAIL!
YESSSS!!!! I loved this game when I was a kid! Great memories! I loved the castle level and its boss.
I remember playing this back in the day. I never actually finished it because the world was too huge and there were too many things to find.
Holy crap! How far does the landscape go?
Best Replay game so far! Can't wait to watch it.
Please get it up on YouTube soon. I can't stand watching it on the GI video player.. but I'm excited to watch.
Ha, the end of that Roulette was hilarious! Why would they let you do that?
Another great game of my childhood! Such fond memories of this, especially the intro song lol.
Bout time!! Man,I put so many hours into this game as a kid.
Oh man, i remember playing this game all the time at a friends house and loving it at the time.
Now I want to see a real ape in an afro and disco suit...
