The problem with that is, how do you use the A and B buttons?The worst complaint that always gets me is "N64 shooters are so hard to play, I hate using the C-buttons!". Again, more pure ignorance. Virtually every N64 shooter has more than one control layout. Even Turok 1 has a "Left-Handed Mode" which maps movement to the D-Pad and aiming to the analog stick, much like modern shooters.
But anyway, I think standard N64 FPS controls -- C-buttons to move, stick to aim -- work fantastically. As I say in some of my reviews there, it's actually my favorite console FPS control method. (Yeah, I've never liked dual-analog FPS controls very much... I know, almost no one agrees with me. It's still my opinion though.)
It's a quite different game from Shadowgate or Beyond Shadowgate, but it is good. It's a first person adventure game, with a lot of exploration and puzzles.I simply haven't found a copy of it yet. I'd very much like to play it and see how it holds up, I found Shadowgate on NES to be very fun.
Move your thumb from the analog stick and over to the right. Yeah, it's a bit hard to reach there, but eventually one gets used to it. The only game that is actually hard to play in "Left Handed Mode" is Rainbow Six, but that could have been fixed if a totally custom layout was permitted.The problem with that is, how do you use the A and B buttons?
I'm in that majority. I've tried playing with the C-buttons and any FPS games on Dreamcast but it's impossible. It just feels wrong. I can only play with dual analog sticks or in the case of N64, the D-Pad and control stick.But anyway, I think standard N64 FPS controls -- C-buttons to move, stick to aim -- work fantastically.

Amusingly, I'm not very good at using the mouse and keyboard method. I just don't play PC FPS games very much...
Analog sticks for movement feel much more wrong. PC FPS controls are digital movement, analog aiming; the N64 and DC match that. PC FPS controls are of course almost infinitely superior to anything with a gamepad, and it's what I was more used to too, so the N64's system is more natural than the Halo-style dual-stick setup that became the default. I've always found that awkward and hard to use.
Of course the N64 does reverse which hand is doing what, versus the PC, but I find that easier to get used to than moving with a stick.

If I like beat em ups, 1 on 1 fighters or RPG's what games am I gonna play on this shi'tay system? Yes one of those free roaming adventure games that I wasted far to much time as a child trying to like.

Impressive review project, a good way to showcase the more obscure N64 games.
I haven't played SBK 2 but from what screenshots I could find the courses look wholly new so you'd be getting a new set of courses. I wouldn't expect it to be like SSX where it's just the same mountain with different obstacles most games.
Also, no Duck Dodgers, Densha de Go, or Derby Stallion 64? Fushigi no Dungeon is decent too. Mario Golf is quite a good light game; you can also annoy your competitor during his swing with obnoxious noises; the courses have music too, not a common feature in golf games and always much needed.
Aha, and you like Indiana Jones, a good sign.
@ cowboyscowboys = Super Smash Brothers, Dual Heroes, and Quest 64.
