I am about to start playing Fable finally(after like 10 years or more of waiting). My understanding this game works by giving you an option of being good and evil, if I choose the evil path will it punish me for it? A lot of games say you have freedom of choice, but they don't give alternate path they make it just difficult with people hunting you, raising prices of everything..etc etc evil mode=hard mode.

and seems like I gave this Radeon HD 7000 too little credit it can run the game in 1024x768x32(whats the last part?) and it looks crisp and beautiful and everything. 4K, 1080P, 120Mhz, 60FPS...who cares! I actually really enjoy this "retro" look, I think its sharp models but blurrier textures. Dreamcastish if you may.

I am not sure what you are asking but I know LaserDisc standard predates the personal computer for the most part, and every OS out there unless its Unix. My best bet is its equivalent to VHS, if it can be done with VHS it can be done with LaserDisc.

Unlike CDs, where the content is fundamentally digital, I believe LD content is recorded in an analog format. So you’d have to digitize the content on the disc through an analog pathway no matter what your interface was.

So, when doing a replay of 3D Mario games, do y’all go for all 120 stars or just get the main levels done and call it good? Just curious, I find some of the stars very boring to get.

Super Mario 64 is the only 3D Mario game that I've played multiple times. There might have been a few times over the years that I didn't get all 120, but still more than the minimum requirement. I use to get board getting the 100 coin star on some levels. But these days, I usually get 120 starts each time I play through it.

The other 3D Mario games, I have yet to play any of them for a second time.

I like to believe Mario 64 is the greatest game made in videogame history. The perfect transition it made into an open 3D world with the use of analogue stick all on cartridge and fast loading with no fans...it blew everything that surrounds it at the time. You really had to be there. Was it free with the system?

Nope. The N64 had no pack-in games. I remember the N64 got it's first price reduction and still had no pack-in game. Super Mario 64 was still my first game for it though.

Was there ever a game bundle for the N64 in any region?

Looks like PAL got this:

Was no Pokemon game included in the Pokemon 64s?

Several, even a fairly limited Mario 64 one going by the site linked. Just not really one for the launch era. Instead, there was the Episode I Racer one, a couple Pokemon ones, and DK64 that I remember being more widespread.
