Would this be something that might grab your attention? Well, I would hope so since it did a great job of grabbing Nintendo 64 gamers’ attentions. This particular game was called Banjo Kazooie and it was pretty damn special.

It featured a lot of collecting, running about, and hurdling obstacles like a maniac. Oh, and the bird, Kazooie, helped you glide and fly over objects and pits and what not. It was a hoot. The RARE company had a huge hit on its hands, selling over 2 million copies and spawning a few sequels. Enjoy some footage and game play, why don’t you!
