What is the best /vr/ platformer?

My vote is for DKC

Megaman X. It has the best wall jumping in genre

>> No.3693646

It's honestly really mediocre and basically a bad game whenever it's in the presence of a good one.

Nobody at Rare likes videogames, kids, or even their own families and friends. They are hateful, selfish, bitter, vindictive, joyless people who make their games based on absolute opportunism. They just copy other shit and slap some of the worst most avuncular humor on it, just because that's actually how little they think of the gaming audience they aim for.

If you like DKC you literally like something that thinks you're a fat ugly nerd with no friends and no taste.

>> No.3693647

Definitely not. The best /vr/ platformer is Alien Soldier.

>> No.3693651

Should have worded it as 'favorite'

I agree it probably isn't technically the best.

>> No.3693652

I'm not really sure I'm comfortable with calling Alien Soldier a platformer. It's more of a run & gun.

>> No.3693656

Then you're an awful person and you should stop playing videogames.

Bubsy is the purest platformer and would be objectively the best if not for Umihara Kawase.

A real soulstrangling game made by literal cucks who actually call themselves cucks in the credits.

Kid Chameleon almost convinced me that all videogames were a complete waste of time.

That's a lie but the scary thing is how true it almost was.

>> No.3693685

No I was being somewhat serious.

SMB3 is better than Bubsy, but not in the purest sense of being a "platformer".

And Umihara Kawase is just better than both of them.

>> No.3693896

I'm so used to people posting that DKC is a mediocre game that got popular on graphics. I usually only go back to DKC2 but I finally played DKC for the first time since the 90's and while it's pretty barebones I remember why I thought it was so good. It's fucking hard compared to other mascot platformers from that era that aren't just badly made games. The difficulty really kicks in once you get to the ice world.

I don't understand any hate to DKC and DKC2. DKC2 is one of my favorite games of all time and DKC is just an all around fun game to play especially for its time. The levels, the enemies, the bonus levels. All of it was just fun as hell and enjoyable to play.

But this is not even the best DKC in the snes.
I like DKC1, but DKC2 is better in every way, I always felt that DKC1 was more of a graphic galore game, but 2 has real gameplay along with it.

Just wondering, how many people here think the Retro (Dev) DKCs are better than the original trilogy?

I went into Returns (proper controls) thinking "no way this is anywhere near as good as the original", then as i played it, "ok it's real good, but no way it'll defeat my nostalgia wall around the originals"

Now I honestly think the 2 newer ones are better, by a lot. Those are insanely fantastic physics and well-designed levels

>> No.3694302

My vote goes to Bionic Commando or Little Samson if you consider these platformers.

>> No.3694393

But what Mario game has all of those differences? SMB2J has just Mario and Luigi, where Luigi explicitly offers a different gameplay feel. SMW has identical handling for Mario, Luigi (ignoring rereleases, which I'll agree are inferior), and Yoshi.

Yoshi's Island is the first game with Yoshi's hovering ability and the levels are designed with that in mind.

SMB2US has four different characters, all with different shit, and all useful/interesting.

S&K3 is boring and the levels are designed with Sonic's rhythm in mind. Clinging to shit as Knuckles or hovering around as Tails is fucking weak and only makes the game more boring. I can't believe people still buy into Sonic's marketing. Your memories of a fast and fun game are your memories of a TV commercial, not of the game itself.

But you're mistaken. It's wall jumping was good, but there has been better.
Can't think of any off the top of my head, but I know there's gotta be better. Given that I'm pretty sure that was one of the earlier SNES games to have wall jumping as a mechanic.

I'm sure the majority of fans of that game didn't even know about its existence before it became slightly popular on the internet. It's like Earthbound or Little Samson except that it's not as ridiculously priced. Truth be told, I'm one of those bandwagoners and I sincerely think it's better than sidescroller fans give it credit for.

I don't really like WL3 myself but the first three Wario Land games for Gameboy (color) were great because of the creativity in the designs. I think Shake It was fine for what it was while Master of Diguise had some neat ideas but was just so badly executed but those aren't retro I guess.

This, yeah Sanic can go fast but much of the original games revolve around controlling the urge to go balls out on speed.

The original SMB was honestly much more about speed, since if you know the enemy placement you can just charge through (ie the first thing a hammer bros. does when you meet him on the ground is a single hammerless hop, so you can just run straight under him)
