Typical: Return to Dream Land, Kirby Super Star, Kirby's Dream Land 3, etc.

Atypical: Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble, Canvas Curse, Epic Yarn, etc.

Personally, I prefer the atypical Kirbys. You?

There are only 3 good Kirby games: Tilt n' Tumble, The Crystal Shards and Epic Yarn. Do you consider Kirby 64 a typical Kirby? If so, it's 2 against 1, atypical Kirby games win!

Crystal Shards would be "typical", but I always thought everyone believed Super Star to be the best "typical" Kirby, and plenty thinking it to be the best Kirby.

I don't have a preference I suppose. Nightmare in Dreamland is one of my favorite platformers (although it's too short and obviously easy) but Kirby's Airride is one of my favorite GC games. That's a game that I'd like to see a sequel for because the original had a lot of potential, it just needed some tweeks and balancing and I thought it would have been a good series eventually.

I have never played a Kirby game other than that golf thing on SNES

I think I like the typical games more, but that's because the only atypical one I've played is Mass Attack and I found it to be a mixed bag. I realy want to play Epic Yarn. Will buy it, Donkey Kong Country Returns and Muramasa in the near future, and maybe a few others.

The typical ones. Super Star Ultra and Return to Dreamland are two of my favorite games this gen, and Kirby's Adventure and Kirby 64 are also memorable to me. That said, I'm also very fond of Epic Yarn, Canvas Curse, and to a lesser extent, Mass Attack as far as atypical games go. It's just that the conventional Kirby formula has proven itself to be rock-solid of late.

So Epic Yarn is atypical just because of the art-style?

I think the "atypical" ones are those who don't play like the typical Kirby platfromers (i.e. Dream Course, the pinball games, ect.).

I concur.

There's actually a re-release in the form of Kirby Super Star Ultra on the DS.

I liked Dream Land 3 too tho.

If you mean "main series" and "spinoffs"

Ofcourse ppl prefer the main series.

It plays differently in some ways than other Kirby games. You aren't copying enemies at all. Instead you're actually attacking them, changing shape, and manipulating the background. I'd say it's different enough to be considered atypical, but I could see it go either way here.

Atypical simply because of Kirby's Dream Course. That hands down is the Best Kirby game ever that also included a very fun multiplayer as well as it really used the kirby abilities better and more original than any other Kirby title and is the most deserving Kirby title that merits a sequel. Kirby's Dream Course was perfect.

Super Star comes in a close second as it was a great typical Kirby title with great platforming elements but it just didn't have the fun factor of Dream Course.

Air ride was pretty fun too but as someone else mentioned, it needs some tweaks here and there and it can be a very good title and could introduce some really interesting ideas to the franchise. What was that cloud riding Kirby game called on DS that you draw the line on the screen and Kirby follows it called? I thought that was an interesting concept but could've been implemented better.

Atypical is way better. I've had more fun with Mass Attack, Canvas Curse, and Epic Yarn more than any traditional Kirby.

The typical ones in general, but I enjoyed Epic Yarn more than any of the others.

Mass Attack wasn't "atypical".it was in the main series.

A typical Kirby game is one where Kirby uses his copy ability. Mass Attack is not that.

That's an easy one! The typical traditional Kirby games are where my allegiance resides! I was a 90's child though so the typical Kirby games offer up a heap of nostalgia for me.

Epic Yarn wasn't a kirby game, it was another character's game that Kirby was put into last second.

I heart Canvas Curse

#23 Posted by Nintendo_Ownes7 (30917 posts) -

I voted Typical Kirby game.

Because the only Kirby games I ever played were: Kirby's Dreamland, Kirby's Adventure, Kirby Super Star Ultra, and Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.

#24 Posted by Subtle_Ninja_X (35 posts) -
I'm just gonna make the call: Kirby Superstar = One of the best games ever made
#25 Posted by goblaa (19304 posts) -

Kirby's Dream Course is addictive as hell.

I like all Kirby games for the most part, but I prefer the typical style.
