Are there any 3D PC platformers like Banjo-Kazooie or Super Mario 64?

Back when I had a Nintendo 64 there were a ton of great platformers I used to play. It doesn't seem like they really make platformers anymore though. I know there are things like Super Mario Galaxy, but unfortunately the only systems I own are PC and Xbox 360. The only good 3D PC platformer I can think of is Psychonauts, can anyone think of any others?

Particularly I would like to find platformers like Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, Donkey Kong 64, or Super Mario 64. What I mean is a game with a hub world such as Gruntilda's Lair in Banjo-Kazooie or the island in Donkey Kong 64 that contains entrances to many worlds, and by collecting items from those worlds more worlds are unlocked and maybe new abilities are obtained. Suggestions for platformers not matching that description are welcome as well (Although I do want 3D, not 2D), but what I'm really hoping to find are games very similar to what I mentioned above.

Although I'm looking for PC games, I wouldn't mind hearing about games for other systems that match that description (especially N64, PS2, or Gamecube games). I wouldn't be able to play them any time soon, but I can make sure that I play them if I ever get an opportunity. For example, are Spyro games like that? I know they are platformers, but I've never really played any of them so I don't know if they are anything like the description above of what I'm looking for.

Seriously buy a wii and Mario Galaxy 1+2, it'd be worth it of that's all you ever did with the system. It's absurd how good they are.

Alice:Madness Returns is a great 3D platformer!

Don't worry about the fact it's not 3D and go and buy Rayman Origins immediately. One of the best platformers released in a very long time.

Agreed, though the floaty controls take a bit to get used to.
