The lights are on
Since its inception in1996, Pokémon has remained relevant in gaming culture. Of course the fanatic fervor has calmed since the late 90s, but I still remember a time when each new Pikachu-branded product made me feel warm and fuzzy. Pokémon Snap, a photography game for the N64 was one of those surprising spin-offs that proved to be just as much fun as the main entries. For this weeks Replay, we take a look back at the on-rails shutterbug shooter.
Join Andrew Reiner, Dan Ryckert, Phil Kollar, and I as we travel across Professor Oak's natural Pokémon habitat. We cruise the beach, a river, and even a fiery volcano in search of shots that outshine the photographs already saved onto the dusty N64 cartridge. Keep your eyes peeled for marvels like incapacitated Charmeleons, infuriatingly stupid Slowpokes, and emotionally confused Magmars. Remember to stay tuned after the Pokémon Snap Replay for an extra special, and extra educational Replay Roulette. (Be patient, the video takes a minute or two to load).

a classic piece of crap lol
Wow... that Elmo game looked pretty painful.
Wow, I am kinda disappointed. You guys went from A link to the past... to Pokemon Snap. I played hours and hours of Pokemon red/blue, then Silver/Gold. So it isn't an anti-pokemon thing. I rented Snap and played it through. It was really, really boooorrrrrring.
IT'S NOT PLAYING
Lantern's right: It's not playing. And it's ante not anti Jeffrey.
ha i remember play this
I used to love this game haha.
I had awesome memories of this game.
its not playing for me also
Best Replay evar!!!
I don't know anything about Pokemon except for Pikachu, Jigglypuff, and that one episode that gave everyone seizures but I remember playing this game at a kiosk in Toys R Us and thinking, "Well, this is a pretty clever idea for a game. What the hell's a Pokerman? Screw it, I'm not 8 years old and I don't care. Wow, Toys R Us kinda sucks when you're older. 'Hey Casey, wanna hit up Arby's?'"
That replay roulette game was mind-numbingly stupid... But I did enjoy pokemon snap, one of my top favorite 64 games
it is not working
its not playing for me either.
i can't view it either
Yep this isn't working for me either. Thought it was just me, but apparently not, due to all of the comments saying so.
Well pokemon did not age well.
meh i remember a few friends getting it just cause of the pokemon craze but god the game sucked so much.
