Little Nightmares was something I stumbled upon one day cause I loved the packaging of the physical edition (although it legit scares my wife every time she sees it lol). Turned out to be an amazing game and I haven't even finished it honestly lol. So glad I was able to experience Celeste. This is a great list and could even use some more

Super Cloudbuilt

This one is the BEST for someone who wants a very challenging yet fair and rewarding platformer. I'm usually terrible at games like this, but with pretty graphics and smooth controls this one is constantly undeservedly overlooked.

I suggested this for a ICYMI article (which there aren't enough of) but I guess it was passed up. I was thinking about writing my own ICYMI article on my TA blog just for this game (yes! I love it that much). The developers were quick to respond when I experienced a now-resolved issue, as well. Since a lot of developers ignore email, I feel that's worth noting.

Candleman is wonderful.

And Rayman Legends is truly one of my favourite games. The utter joy in the game, the look and the sound, just superb.

Spyro now has subtitles since the last update, incase that would stop you from playing it!

No Hollow Knight so this list a definitive fail in my eyes.

I absolutely love Inside, Cuphead, and Little Nightmares! I've still gotta buy Candleman and Dead Cells. And I need to start Shovel Knight back up, then play Celeste.

I have a suspicion that Ori and the Blind Forest will be a GwG at some point, maybe when the sequel releases. Of course, I think that the game is certainly worth the money, but I've got such a backlog and I'm not trying to make it any bigger.

Isn't Hollow Knight more of a Metroidvania?

So the reasons Tomb Raider, Portal, and Trials did not make this list are:
a. You don't agree with your game rating system;
b. You don't agree with your own multi-genre identification system; or
c. They aren't really platformers and shouldn't have been put in that genre in the first place.

Which is it?

You need to include Hue.

How difficult is the Dead Cells completion, day on a scale of 1-10?
