Either it's a Canadian thing or you saw this in a store ran by a thief.
I got my first N64 in 1998 along with 3 games (Goldeneye, Super Mario 64 & Mario Kart 64). The system was $199.99 and the games were $49.99 each, all brand new.
As far as I recall, no N64 game ever retailed for over $49.99 here. The one exception being Hey You, Pikachu.
Didn't catch on? It was manufactured from 1996 to 2003 and sold over 30 million units. The Virtual Boy would be an example of "not catching on".
