Which do you guys prefer, 2d platformers or 3d platformers?

>> No.3666414

This is a board for retro games.
What do you think?

>> No.3666417

I think your being a little hasty

>> No.3666419

Is there even any decent 3D platformer?

>> No.3666425

3D mostly because there is so much shovelware in the 2D platformer genre.

>> No.3666487

2d errything

>> No.3666503

Out of my favorite platformers:
10% 3d
90% 2d

>> No.3666571

I think both have qualities and different strong points.
I personally don't have a clear preference.

>> No.3667830

I have a clear preference for 2D, but still appreciate 3D platforming.

>> No.3667862

3d is 100% shovelware

>> No.3667868

This for me too. I really like platformers so its hard to pick a favorite between 2D and 3D.

I think 2D platformers tend to have tighter, more focused gameplay, whereas 3D platformers tend to have stronger adventure/exporation elements with considerably more variety in gameplay.

Manley 2d, but only some games can pull of 3d

There are more good 2d platformers than good 3d platformers, but the best 3d platformers have better gameplay than the best 2d platformers.

>stronger adventure/exporation elements

That's what Metroidvanias are for.

Does Tomba! count?

>> No.3668161

That's a 2.5D platformer.

>> No.3668319

OP here, yeah sure

>> No.3668325


I think there's more good 2D platformers than there are 3D platformers, but the best 3D platforms are better than all the 2D platformers. 3D has a higher ceiling.

>> No.3668329


Oh shit, I typed this without even seeing this post and we said practically the same thing >>3667906

>> No.3668398

2.5D are best.

>World is immersive without being empty
>Games can be based on gameplay not explorational fetchquest
>Don't need to signal everything to player so they go the right way if there's an intended destination

Underage post.

Seriously, 2.5D games are shit.

> Jarring mix between 2D and 3D elements
> The style is never uniform so it's much difficult to make the graphics somewhat passable
> If the resolution is low the 3D will look like shit, if the resolution is high the 2D will look like shit

2D is the way to go.

>> No.3668656

kys asap please


>> No.3668686

I don't think there is a single 3d platformer I've enjoyed. Maybe Isometrics if you count them as 3d.

>> No.3668691

Not if you don't like them.

>> No.3668698

As long as the camera and view distance are fine, I don't have a preference with regards to their fundamental gameplay differences.

>> No.3669670


>> No.3669720

That game definitely has an interesting play style to it

>> No.3669802


This is almost completely true. A good 3D platformer has depth in its controls. Not to mention, a 3D space has more room for creativity (and more room for error).

I say almost because there are so many incredibly boring 2d platformers. I am lumping the indie shit in to this category too. I would say though, the best 3D platformers are better than the best 2D platformers but I would also say it's a close race.
