You're just a hop, skip, and a jump away from genre greatness

I like platform games, but to be honest in the sidescrolling genre nothing touches Donkey Kong Country 2

Hm... I have all of these but Candleman. I was hoping for something amazing I wasn't aware of.

Also: Celeste completely blew my socks off. I loved it.
If anyone's looking for a good 3D platformer check out A Hat in Time. It's great.

Rayman should be in there indeed. And in a way Trials is platformer too imo

Rayman and Battleblock Theater are the only ones missing for me I think.

Where's A Hat In Time? That game is everything Yooka Laylee should have been.

Chariot and Kalimba are two that immediately spring to mind for me.

Planet of The Eyes should be there. I know it's short but it's still a great little game imo.

I think it says it all about the genre that for all the entries I've played I'm like "Yep, this deserves to be here" and yet I'm also going "Oh, where's X, where's Y" etc laugh

I've played and 100% completed 8/10 games on this list, love platformers. Rayman Legends/Origins are two great ones as well. Would love another in a similar vein. Dust: An Elysian Tail is one of my favorite games of all time, very underappreciated.
