    Heresy, but I never liked the Spyro games. Not even the "good" ones. I don't think they hold up like the rest of the games on this list.

    Yeah, no.

    I liked Sonic enough but the series is surpassed as a platformer by most of the other games on this list.

    I don't think it's a bad game but Galaxy left me feeling like it was an 8/10. Technically it's brilliant, but a lot of the time it feels really linear in its mission structure and level progression. A lot of the new 3D Mario games have been a bit more filtered and linear and I feel like it just doesn't fit quite right to me.



  • @Churchy You monster.

    I don't like the characters or the franchise, but I'll let Tropical Freeze live out of these two (for now, muahaha), because the Allies praise it more.

    I was never a big fan of the Crash games

    Just don't think it's as good or innovative as DKC Returns in my view, a sequel that wasn't needed and populated with needless tertiary characters.



  • @DisturbedSwan R&C, and several others have been killed already. You must have pulled a wrong list. Please make a new kill from the following:

    Super Mario Bros. 3
    Ape Escape

    Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer
    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

    Shovel Knight
    Cave Story

    @DisturbedSwan, heads up, someone killed your pick earlier, you may want to kill something else.

    Okay, before you all toss me out of here for my kill, hear me out. Shovel Knight was great when it came out and hearing Yacht Club games get announced on stage recently got me pumped for a new franchise, a sequel, anything but more DLC. Nearly 3 years after initial release, we're getting more DLC instead of something new and fresh. There's also a lot of segments that factor more as slow and tedious as opposed to loads of fun. Sorry Shovel Knight, you won't be able to save Shield Knight this time.



  • @SabotageTheTruth @Brannox Cheers for the heads up, will amend my post now, you guys may need to update your lists too to keep the continuity (sorry I messed up).



  • Super Mario Bros. 3

    I did enjoy it for a while, but then, it nearly drove me insane. Those later levels... They are most likely literally designed by devil.



  • @jipostus you got to git gud, but yeah Super Meat Boy is insane

    Super Mario Bros. 3
    Ape Escape
    Psychonauts
    Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon
    Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer
    Banjo Kazooie

    Played it a little bit, not my thing



  • @bard91 I was surprised someone put it on this list, I was secretly pulling for it. Goodbye sweet prince, we hardly knew ye.



  • Super Mario Bros. 3
    Ape Escape
    Psychonauts
    Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon
    Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer
    Banjo Kazooie
    Rayman Legends

    Cave Story

    2/USA is a far better game than 3 in my opinion.



  • @bard91 I did beat the game eventually, but.. It nearly cost me my sanity.



  • Ape Escape
    Psychonauts
    Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon
    Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer
    Banjo Kazooie
    Rayman Legends
    Kirby and the Crystal Shards

    It's not a bad game but the others on this list are better. There have also been better Kirby games as well I feel.

    @naltmank I know. It's the only time I've felt like it during these votes!



  • Ape Escape
    Psychonauts
    Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon
    Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer
    Banjo Kazooie
    Rayman Legends
    Cave Story

    By no means a bad game, just not as good as another on this list that I'm rooting for



  • Ape Escape
    Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon
    Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer
    Banjo Kazooie
    Rayman Legends

    It's fine, not the best on the list



  • Ape Escape
    Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon
    Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer

    The quiz is stupid.
