Files that contain the .n64 file extension are ROM image files. These files contain a Nintendo 64 video game. The Nintendo N64 was a popular gaming system that was distributed by Nintendo in the late 1990's.
A file with an .n64 file suffix contains an exact copy of a Nintendo 64 game, exactly as the game was stored on the game's original cartridge.
The N64 ROM image files allow a user to play an N64 game on their computer instead of the actual N64 device. In order to do so however, the user must have the proper emulation software installed on their hard drive.
