It would be an optional your opinion, it wouldn't be "enjoyable"...just like to some people, playing on a mouse and keyboard is not "enjoyable"...but it's there as an option.
Most N64 games are running a 20-30 fps, some games like Smash and F Zero run at 60fps.

Lemme put it this way...what's more noticeable? 60 down to 20 or 30 down to 20?

Obviously, 60 down to 20.

The difference between 30 fps and 60 fps is huge. You have 30 extra frames per second to make inputs.

Side-note, games run way too fast with the Frame Limiter turned off.

Also, I understand that 30 FPS (or VPS??? whatever) is slower. I'd rather have consistent "slower" (around 30 FPS most of the time) performance than my game go from 60 to below 30 FPS. It's extremely distracting and kinda kills gameplay for me. Besides, these are N64 games, not modern games. I understand 30 FPS isn't the standard anymore, but it was back then for many games.

(You said "VPS"...I'm referring to what the FPS counter tells me.)
What game are you talking about and what plugin are you using.
