Don't see it as arrogance at all. Without Rare's help the N64 line-up would have been pretty abysmal and the PS1 would've overthrown the N64 completely. Nintendo lost a lot of 3rd parties due to expensive to produce carts. Major 3rd party franchises moved over to Sony (Final Fantasy being the biggest) and other major 3rd party franchises were born on the PS1.

Rare is right they had:

- Goldeneye 007
- Donkey Kong 64
- Diddy Kong Racing
- Killer Instinct Gold
- Blast Corps
- Jet Force Gemini
- Conker's Bad Fur Day
- Perfect Dark
- Banjo-Kazooie
- Banjo Tooie
- Mickey's Speedway USA

Almost all of which were both critically and financially successful which is surprising since they all released within a 3 year time span. Much more than just a "handful". Games like Banjo, DK64, Goldeneye, and Diddy Kong Racing are some of the best selling software on the system. Nintendo could not have survived with just Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time.
