Nintendo 64 (N64 for short) is a great system for begginers becuase the controller is small and easy to work, and becuase they offer the least violent games. It's got 3-dimensional picture, you can play it on any size TV and unlike most Bame Boy games, most games have real vioces. I like the color of this consol and controller, too. N64 is the perfect thing for those boring, rainy days. Yes, I'd suggest this system.
