I've been on a bit of a platformer kick recently so I was wondering.
The first Nintendo platformer I spent real time on was Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 so I have nostalgia for Wario that I don't have for 2D Mario games. I only really started playing Mario games with Mario 64. Along with Wario Land, I was also playing Kirby's Dream Land 2 at the time so those games really have a place in my heart. Besides those games and 3D Mario games, I actually haven't play that many platformers. I really liked the first Jak and Daxter, Rachet and Clank: A Crack in Time, and Rayman Origins. Sly games don't seem to really do it for me. I'm playing DKC Tropical Freeze and accounting for momentum, animation, and weight makes it very interesting I think.
What are some of your favorite platformers to date?
