Poll What's Your Favorite of These PS2 Platformers? (Ratchet, Jak, Sly) (22 votes)

Ratchet and Clank 59%
Jak and Daxter 23%
Sly Cooper 18%

I've been getting pretty hyped for the release of the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy, as well as the possibility of a Spyro the Dragon Trilogy remake. It also brought up memories of the PS2's big platforming headliners: Ratchet, Jak, and Sly. They've very much been sister series to each other, even enough to get a crossover game (which was unfortunately horrible...). Still, these three have provided excellent 3D platformers, each having creative worlds, memorable characters, and fantastic gameplay. All of these series are great, but which of them is your favorite?

For me, it's definitely Ratchet and Clank. I love the characters and universe, I love the catchy music and cartoonish aliens, and I love the creative platforming and massive weapon arsenals. You can't go wrong with Insomniac.

Ratchet and Clank is probably my favorite of the three, though I only played a little Sly Cooper.

Jak series disappointed me. They kept adding more stuff to it without ever really nailing down the basic platforming. Something about it always felt off. Jak X was pretty good though.

Edit: Plus, Daxter is just the worst. Freaking constant with the dad jokes.

I'm actually starting to really enjoy Sly Cooper in the Vita. So much that I'd prefer them over Jak and Ratchet & Clank.

Jak was ok but I just couldn't click with the characters and Ratchet & Clank was more fun but got too repetitive and the platforming kinda sucked.

Hated Jak & Daxter. Gave up halfway through part 2. Never played Sly. Definitely going with Ratchet and Clank for the tight gameplay and cool ass weapons.

One of my favorites PS2 Games rachet and clanks. J and D was fun at the beginning for me but I got easily bored midway.

I remember my mom playing rachet and clanks and beating couple of levels lol
