I've played both, and Ratchet And Clank is one of my favorite franchises of all time but Sly Cooper is a great series as well. As for Jak, the First one is the best, the second one changed it drastically by making it darker and grittier and guns added.

Ratchet and Clank is a solid platformer with a gun-based combat mechanic. And there are a lot of guns (and other weapons too) this allows for a lot of different playstyles and approaches to situations There isn't a lot of jumping, gadgets are the main focus of the platforming
Sly cooper is more of the jumpy/climby platformer. It has a stealth mechanic and Sly learns a lot of abilities he can use for combat and sneaking
Id recommend both

Umm okay, i was more looking for an opinion from someone who played both or either so i can have a good idea of what both series offer.
And i never played Jak either but that series doesn't interest me.
I was wondering why Jak was brought up?
As for your point TC Ratchet is more akin to a 3rd person shooter and platformer hybrid. the weapons ratchet acquires through the game are both hilarious and functional. The story is generally light hearted with an emphasis on level progression. I would highly recommend the HD collection as it akes the game look great as long as you dont mind a low res flash animations throughout the game
Sly on the other hand is a more stealth based platformer with more emphasis on finesse. Sly can't jump nearly as high as Ratchet and his double jump isn't precisely a double jump. the story is also light hearted in sly but there is more of a dark trend especially in the second game. I would recommend playing 2 and 3 over 1 as there is a vast shift in style from 1 to 2.
