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

Thank you for this list. These tend to be my favourite genre of games to play and I will be picking the ones up I don't have soon.
There is always a way.

I'd add Unravel to the list. One of my all-time favourite platformers.

Definitely not my favorite genre but Candleman was amazing!

Voodoo Vince is a great remastered game! I was a huge fan of the original and when they had announce this seemingly out of nowhere was was so excited!!

Little nightmares is a fantastic game as well, the soundtrack is spectacular.

I will eventually pick up Crash one day once I finish some of my backlog!

Good list, but I'd also throw in Hollow Knight and the Mega Man X Legacy Collection. Both great buys.
This is a signature. It has words in it.

I love these type of games. I’ve never heard of FRU, I’ll check it out when I have more time, thanks for the heads up TA. Rayman is currently on sale for $5 if anyone is interested.

Just me but I wouldn’t have included Little Nightmares on this list. A fine game but not one of the best, I thought some of the platforming was it’s weakest points. I would have put Guacamelee in it’s place.

Fru is a wonderful game, shows what the Xbox could have achieved with a bit of support for the Kinect. Such a shame they never really backed it enough.

I've played the majority of these and they're all great. Love platformers.

Hollow Knight is an egregious omission from this list. It's easily better than many of the games on this list, and I love some of these games a lot.

Really enjoyed the first one, yet to play the second, but I'd agree with this for sure. When not going for the achievements, the game is very relaxing and serene. Going for all the achievements was a different story and why I've held off on the second one so far.

Well damn. I already own all of these besides Fru. Was hoping to stumble upon something new.

I think Candleman might be my very favorite Indie game. Happy to see it here!

Decent list, few on there that I still have to do. I'd remove Voodoo Vince though (which is mediocre even during its better moments) and replace it with something like Dandara (a hidden gem buried within Game Pass).

I must be that one guy who doesn't like the crash bandicoot trilogy. The gameplay is not as smooth as it could be imo.
Mega man 11 should be on the list. Maldita castilla is great too but its very hard

Good list.

I'd also add in Hue (on Gamepass) and Super Lucky's Tale, had lots of fun with both those recently.
