I've play just about all Sonics and Marios and I've played all the Jak games too, I don't know about ratchet and clank (it doesn't look as funny as Jak and Daxter)

I was thinking something on the line of pandemonium that kind.

ratchet and clank is pretty fun. i guess there's also Crash, Banjo Kazooie and Mega Man.

Earthworm Jim 1 and 2 are great games, but lets not forget James Pond 2.

oh and demolition man was oddly fun, just make sure you play it on normal. If you play it on easy halfway through the game it laughs at you and tells you to play normal if you wanna play the full game.

Yoshi's Story is actually an N64 game, but yeah, it is pretty good if you don't mind it being a little kiddy.

If you got an N64 Super Mario 64 and Donkey Kong 64, along with the Banjo Kazooie games, are absolute must-haves. But ESPECIALLY Donkey Kong 64. IMO, that was the best freakin' game I ever played, no exceptions.

try out ratchet

if you're looking for an old school platformer i'd say get the 1st. the 3rd one is best but its much more shooting focused.

you might want to check out the sly cooper series.

there's also the crash series. there are 3 on the ps1, that most people agree are great games. theres wrath of cortex (ps2)which is pretty fun and under rated imo. crash twinsanity(ps2) also got decent reviews and sounds fun (havent played it)

Thats a good one plus the sequal for playstation 2 was awesome as well. Also the Sly cooper series and Maximo were pretty good for playstaton 2. Other games that havn't been mentions would be like Ristar, Dynamite Heady, and Bubsy for genesis. Spyro the dragons? I mean I could go on all day about at least solid good platform games on just about every system.

I'll give you a personal recommendation for Super Ghoul's 'N Ghosts, perhaps the most difficult platformer on the face of the Earth.

Crash Bandicoot is by far my favorite platformer. I lost it and I've regretted it ever since.

Gotta go with megaman. Either classic megaman or Megaman X...or megaman ZX is good, too.

I can't believe no-one's mentioned Kirby. Kirby Superstar on SNES/DS (though I haven't played that version yet) is probably the best in the series although Kirby's Adventure (NES) is good too. Also Tomba/Tombi on the Playstation is a good, unmentioned platformer.

Spyro the Dragon on PS1 is awesome! Also Earthworm Jim was cool on Sega Megadrive.

Jungle Hunt is one of my all time favorite platformer games. Although it's not along the lines of mario or sonic, it's still a fun old arcade game you can have a blast with. It's on the Taito Legends collection.

If you want some great platformers, you gotta look into the whole Adventure Island series.

Really though, Goemon's Great Adventure is the best platformer ever...I use to think it was Yoshi's Island, but no the Mystical Ninja wins this one.

I'm certain you meant Lufia, but either way, it's a RPG. Don't even bother with the first one, just skip to the second.
