Best Platformer game?

What's with the love for platform games? I played prince of persia once (the ancient DOS version 20 years ago :D). It looks so tedious & frustrated with all the booby traps.


So you've managed to avoid playing any platformers for 20 years?

What kinds of games do you play?

My favourite genres is RPG (JRPGs are the best). I also played some RTS games on PC (Red Alert, Command and Conquest). With the 3DS I play basically every Nintendo first-party games bar Mario (the platformer one). I love Mario Kart though :)

LittleBigPlanet isn't just the best platformer but possibly also the best game on the Vita.

Wow, people actually think this.

I have like 14 2D platformers on my ipad from 3 years ago that I would rather play.

Nice opinion. Critics and I disagree. I thought the game started out slow but there are some very creative and even challenging levels later on in the game. Not to mention the tons of great user-made levels.

I would have understood if you picked an actual bad platformer.

But by god, that original prince of persia was incredibly fun and challenging.

And you're completely avoid the genre because of one game you played one time 20 years ago?
