Why do Some games work perfect, others freeze the console?

On my Nintendo 64, I have Donkey Kong 64 and Star Fox. I can play both games for hours and have no problem, but when I borrowed Mario Kart 64 and 007 Golden eye from a buddy, both games will freeze my console within about 10 minutes of playing. The weird thing is Mario Kart and 007 are my buddy's most frequently played games and it never freezes his Nintendo. What can I do to fix this?

Dude that sucks. 007 is one of the best games of all time

Ok so I looked into it. You need to clean your system, clean the game, with isopropyl alcohol. Also, apparently vibrations can cause this system to freeze, so make sure to keep it in a steady enviornment

Thanks a lot for your answer. My Nintendo is in a steady environment so it can't be vibration. I'll definitely give them both a clean with alcohol and I'll post back how it worked.
