Platformer you most want to see brought back? Any system.

I tried to think of an obscure mediocre PS1 platformer that I could complain wasn't on the list, but I'm drawing a blank. Curse you, person who already said Jersey Devil!

But yeah, Ape Escape. The others I felt already hit their potential, but I'll never get sick of catching monkeys.

I never played Jak and Daxter but I loved the R&C games and would love to see more games like that.

I don't really see what they can add to Crash or Spyro but I'd be interested to see them (as in Insomniac and Naughty Dog) try.

Jak seems to be the popular choice so far. Odd that Sony hasn't done anything with it despite releasing the HD Collection and what not. No votes for Tomba at all!? lol


The Lost Frontier flopped, that's why they haven't made a new Jak game since. Also, where is Sly? I know there is a 4th one in the works, but still.

The reason why Bubsy 3D was so bad was because it was rushed. They were originally suppose to keep developing it for 1 more year, but the execs forced them to release it early to compete with SM64, when it was still a beta, similar to what happened with Sonic 06. With better graphics, framerate and controls, it would have been a good game. They should remake it.

Hard choice between Spyro, Crash, Jak, Banjo Kazooie, and Ape Escape.
Went with Jak though.

I remember the day I got Jersey Devil.. It was cold, sleeting and about to storm something fierce -- Funcoland, Gamestop these days, called me with my pre-order and said they got one copy in and that I had to get it before they closed that day or they had to re-stock it for sale. I walked 4, maybe even 5 miles to get that game... I remember it like it was yesterday, only it was many yesterdays ago. I remember it so vividly because I had a grocery bag full of nes and gen games with me that I had to trade in just to buy it...

:-(

Never the less, I went home and played the hell out of it... The only thing is, to this very day, I never beat it. I didn't know how to. The last level was like this odd hub world thing and you beat all the hubs and are left back at the main entrance town square bit, but I couldn't trigger anything to happen. X-men for the sega Genesis was the only other game that perplexed me so greatly -- On a whim one day, out of anger, I slapped the reset button and it took me to the last level.

banjo kazooie

I didn't list Sly because they are releasing the new game in just a few months.
