i'd say the 5 god-tier platformers are:

-Super Mario Bros 3
-Super Mario World
-SMW2: Yoshi's Island
-Sonic 3+Knuckles
-Mega Man X

I think I'd have to go with Mario 64. But very close runner-ups would be Mega Man 9 and Mischief Makers and Castlevania: SotN (if you want to consider a multi-genre game in the platformer genre).

Sonic 3&Knuckles.

Undoubtedly.

Huge, expansive levels, fast platforming and balance between speed, platforming and exploration. 3 characters with different abiltiies lends replay value, has a great length without feeling like filler. Bosses in every act, all unique. Amazing OST, lovely 16 bit graphics.

I assumed this meant 2D platformers, so I negelected to mention that Mario Galaxy is IMO on equal footing. They're both my favourite platformers ever. It's a beautiful, epic game with constantly exciting and unique gameplay, tons of ideas, and the greatest soundtrack known to man.

I'd say Sonic 2 is my favorite platformer ever.

I know a lot of people loved Sonic 3 & Knuckles, but I actually ended up enjoying Sonic 2 the most. I'm not sure why, I guess I just liked the zones better.

Regardless, they're both masterpieces.
