My personal favorite? Rayman Origins. What other good platformers would you reccomend on any console?

#2 Posted by SolidTy (44493 posts) -

Little Big Planet 1 and 2, Rayman Origins which you have, New Super Mario Bros. Wii are my tops...throw in Kirby, Donkey Kong, Ratchet Tools of Destruction PS3, Ratchet : A Crack in Time PS3, and Mario Galaxy games as well for Wii. If you never played Jak & Daxter series or Sly Cooper Trilogy, they also released fun HD PS3 collections for new fans.

Trine for DL on PSN, Trine 2 for PSN/XBLA, Braid for PSN/XBLA, Limbo for PSN/XBLA.

Those immediately come to mind.

Happy gaming! :P

Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Sonic Generations and Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction and A Crack in Time comes to mind.

New Super Mario Bros., Mario Galaxy 1&2, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Rayman Origins and Super Meat Boy.

Either LittleBigPlanet 2 or Super Mario 3D Land

It would have been courage the cowardly dog had they actually made it...but NOOOOOO...

New Super Mario Bros and Sonic Generations immediately come to mind.

Most of mine are indie titles... that's where I feel most of the true creativity lies in the current state of the gaming industry. Super Meat Boy, Dustforce, Limbo, Braid, Fez (just got it yesterday but it's fantastic so far). Other than all the recent Mario games (Galaxy 1 & 2, New Super Mario Bros), I can't think of many other big name platformers that I've played this generation...

Super Mario Galaxy the game just blew me away the sequel is also amazing too.

#10 Posted by TMoney999 (39 posts) -

I can't decide between super mario 3d land or Rayman origins or sonic generations.

I liked Ratchet and Clank: Crack In Time the best. I didn't play enough though, still need to get a few.

#16 Posted by Salt101010 (147 posts) -

Rayman Origins is the best!!!

#17 Posted by Kizumi (3 posts) -

verbtex
This one indeed.
#18 Posted by sonic_man00 (5 posts) -

Well, Here are mine not in order i like them: 1.Sonic 06 2.Secret Agent Clank 3.Rayman DS 4.Ratchet And Clank:Size Matters 5.Jak And Daxter:The Last Frontier And no one argue about "Sonic 06 SUCKS!" Or "The first one you put SUCKS" Or other things about Sonic 06. It is better than Sonic Generations. In my opinion.

#19 Posted by roulettethedog (10991 posts) -

I'll go the easy way with Donkey Kong:Returns and the new Super Mario Bros' Wii.

#20 Posted by nintendoboy16 (27254 posts) -
Super Mario Galaxy 1 (2 was great, but weak compared to the first in my opinion) Rayman Origins Sonic Colors Donkey Kong Country Returns
#21 Posted by Renegade_Fury (17292 posts) -

Sonic Colors
Sonic Generations
Super Mario Galaxy 1&2
Donkey Kong Country Returns

I'd say SMG2 is easily the most polished, and if you only are going to play any of these just once, it'd be the one to pick. Sonic Generations is my favorite though, because it gives me the incentive to keep playing for better ranked times, and its crazy fast reaction gameplay is totally unlike any other platformer.

#22 Posted by Jynx_1991 (1301 posts) -

Alice: Madness Returns is my favourite.

#23 Posted by domilli (1 posts) -
i agree! all the coolest game ideas are indie. limbo is incredible and super meat boy is just plain crazy. love those 2 titles!
#24 Posted by mikeyeggo (23 posts) -

Super Mario Galaxy for me.

#25 Posted by LombaxHedgehog (6 posts) -

Well, R&C: Tools of Destruction, Quest for Booty and A Crack in Time no doubt, and Sonic Generations as well.

I'm a huge fan of the Mass Effect trilogy, but Grand Theft Auto 4, Halo, COD, and Batman Arkham games are amazing too.

2 totally different games, but Sonic Generations and Alice: Madness Returns. The first needs no explaination, but the second was a fantastic take on Alice in Wonderland, sort of a creepy horror movie sequal to it. Totally original game, amazing puzzles and controls, interesting characters, long levels, great story, super crisp graphics. Very addictive.
#37 Posted by Ryu_Katamari (28 posts) -
Ohhh and Super Meatboy!! Holy shit is this game hard.
#38 Posted by GamerNerdTalk (382 posts) -

Prince of Persia (2008) is probably my favorite. mario bros wii and Kirby epic yarn are good too
