I have played all the Prince of Persia games, Assassin Creed 1 and 2 and a couple of the Tomb Raider games (though not the most recent one).

Any favourites anyone might have that they would recommend? Feel free to recommend console games for emulators too, I suppose.

Thanks.

That's basically it :p

Nah. People say Psychonauts is really good. I can't get into it though. But you might want to give it a look.

Rayman 2 is really good, but you need nglide wrapper to run it and it will only run like 38fps locked when you're using the wrapper. I don't like Rayman 3 at all. Sonic Generations is really good. Also you may like Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light

DMC's platforming sections are atrocious. Well, they're not that bad in DmC, but I still wouldn't recommend it as a platformer.

Mirror's Edge is excellent, as is the newest Tomb Raider. However, Tomb Raider is as much a shooter as it is a platformer. Beyond Good And Evil and Psychonauts are a bit dated, but still great games IMO.

You can tell a lot about a person based on how they treat the weaker members of society.

I don't know how well the PC runs but Ratatouille for the PSP was really fun for me. I even spent the time to 100% it even though I had hand cramps doing the racing missions. Damn rubberband AI; if I messed up a turn the race was over.
