On Game Grumps

The Game Grumps have played several games on the Nintendo 64, most notably Banjo-Kazooie while Jon was on the show, and Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time with Danny on the show. A majority of the Nintendo 64 games the Grumps have played are one-offs. Four Nintendo 64 games developed by Rare were featured on the Guest Grumps episode, "Special Guest Grant Kirkhope". Super Smash Bros. holds the distinction of being the only N64 game, as well as one of three non-PC games to be featured on Steam Train thus far.
