    Wondering if I should pick up an N64 for retro-gaming, but the games are WAY overpriced anywhere I could find them so I'm looking for a good flashcart. (Otherwise I'll just emulate them...)

    What would be a good, *CHEAP* flashcart for N64?

    "Cheap" is subjective. Contempory devices like the CD64 and Z64 are increasingly rare and can be clunky and unreliable. A modern cart like the 64drive or NeoMyth is going to set you back 200USD

    Here's a review of the 64Drive.

    No such thing as 'cheap' for consoles other than the DS. Flash carts on other systems never got popular enough to push down production costs. So you could probably buy most of the games you want to play cheaper than a flash cart.

    Yeh, I'd suggest investing in a good condition N64 pad, a usb convertor and just emulating to be honest.

    Everdrive64 is the cheapest flashcard I found available. $100 or so

    While I was about to get one, it's much better to get original cartridges, also, the screen resolution isn't that good unless you do a hardware mod.
