"With releases like Meme Run, Nintendo needs to start taking a hard look at its eShop policies on the Wii U. This is a game that simply should not have been released, and certainly not for its outlandish asking price. There is no reason to purchase Meme Run — not for a laugh, not for a good time, not for anything. Stay away from this miserable game and spend your hard-earned money and time elsewhere." - Nintendo Life, 1/10 Stars

I'm mostly shocked that it was featured on the community screen of the Wii U. It looks like complete garbage.

@mormonwarrior: Mega Man 2, Super Mario Bros 3/World, DKC2, Sonic 2, Super Castlevania IV, Rayman Legends, Shovel Knight, VVVVVV, Cave Story, Super Meat Boy, Kirby Super Star, Metal Storm, Tower of Heaven, Klonoa, and Dustforce.

15, just using one game from each series. Otherwise there would be a lot more Mega Man and Mario. I also didn't include Super Metroid because I'm iffy on whether that's a platformer or not. Yoshi's Island isn't a bad game by any means - it would probably make my top 20.

  • Super Castlevania IV sucks entirely and is not a good game. None of the games in that series are better than Yoshi's Island either.
  • Mega Man 3 is better than 2 and Mega Man X is better than both...but whatever. Moot point. I probably like at least one of those games better than Yoshi's Island.
  • Rayman Legends I'll give you. Maybe. Actually it's lower on my list, but I love them both
  • VVVVVV is an interesting novelty, as is Cave Story. Not stellar, polished platformers but decent for what they are.They don't even play in the same ballpark.
  • Meat Boy...is raw challenge and awesome, so maybe.
  • Kirby Super Star is overly easy and light on content, so no. There's nothing special about that game. Never understood the weird adoration for it. Kirby's Adventure is better. Still, no Kirby game is better than Yoshi's Island, even if the series has a better track record than the mostly-horrific Yoshi series.
  • Donkey Kong Country 2 is probably in the top 3 of the best platformers ever, so I'll give you that for sure. The first game? Nope. The third? Eh. Maybe.
  • Super Mario Bros. 3? Yes, probably the best platformer ever apart from Super Mario Galaxy. Super Mario World is slightly overrated and Yoshi's Island is more creative and fun overall I think.
  • Shovel Knight is okay. Not mind blowing, but well-made and fun and a nice homage to old Mega Man games and such. Not "greatest platformer ever" material by any stretch.
  • I'm a fan of Klonoa games, but they're also overly easy and short. Quaint and cute, but not as good as Yoshi's Island.
  • Metal Storm is an action shooter, not a platformer. More like Metal Slug or Contra or things of that nature. Not even the same thing at all.
  • What the heck is Tower of Heaven? Who's even played that?
  • Super Metroid isn't a pure platformer in the same way. Probably the best SNES game, but it's a different beast altogether. It could maybe count though.

Yoshi's Island is inventive, beautiful, challenging and full of secrets and neat boss fights and...well, it's one of the best platformers/games ever! It's in my top ten SNES games for sure (list) and my personal top 35 games of all time too (list). It's not the best game ever made but it sure is up there. Look man, I'll defend Yoshi's Island to my grave. :)

Yoshi's Island is one of the best games ever made. The Game Boy Advance port, though, is...poor. It makes all the jumps completely blind and makes finding the hidden stuff way too hard. Also, the sound and look of it are just too off. I just didn't like that version at all.

But yeah, top 15? For sure! Name 15 better platformers. I dare you. :)

I forgot how striking the art style of this REmake was. It still looks really good! And the new control scheme makes it even more appealing to me.

Not the same game. The 3DS game is a port/remake of Xenoblade for the Wii. This is Xenoblade X, a new game for the Wii U.

I know. That's what I was asking about. I wanna see how that one runs because I want to decide if I should play through the Wii version or play the new 3DS version.

Huh. Yeah I'd try this out if it comes to the US.

I really like what little I've played so far on PS4. It has a lot more personality than Destiny. Is anybody in a clan on PS4? I know there's a PC clan around here.

Man, the way Jeff takes a crap on Nintendo every chance he gets is kind of irritating. Honestly I love the Wii U a whole lot and this year has been awesome for the system. It's not even close. It really says something that I just bought a PS4 and Xbox One finally and my most played console this last month has been the Wii U (Captain Toad, Super Smash Bros., Bayonetta 2, even smatterings of the not-good-but-not-bad Hyrule Warriors here and there and other games I've missed). I own way more Wii U games, downloaded and otherwise, than any other console this generation and it doesn't look like that will turn around.

I also don't want to be friends with somebody that can't enjoy a good new Mario Kart game. Like seriously.

I don't think Threes is nearly as good as everyone is making it out to be and I don't get Luftrausers after trying to play it for an hour or so. But hey. I'm interested in checking out The Fall at least.

EDIT: I loved Tropical Freeze and I'm a huge fan of listening to the old DKC Super Nintendo music (since those are some of my favorite games ever), but I just don't think TF has that good of music. I was stoked when I saw that David Wise was back on board, but it's kind of underwhelming PBS jungle kids music. Seriously. I don't get the gushing about it. Mario 3D World was better, as was Mario Kart 8.
