    Spelunky is pretty fab. I think... it might be my favorite platformer ever.

    I can not play Spelunky. No matter how hard I try I just can't memorize all the tricks you need to succeed in that game.

    I think I only ever made it past the jungle once.

    Sonic Generations ranged from okay to fun, but that last boss has soured me on it forever.

    I think we need to be honest with ourselves and say the Sonic/Shadow stages were also not good.

    They were basically the earliest quick-time events, except the prompt was just up for about 3-5 minutes

    can we talk about blatant sonic rip-offs? my personal favorite is socket, known as time dominator in some regions, which is a WAY better name than socket

    The Jak & Daxter series is possibly the most underrated series of games ever.

    Granted that the sequels de-emphasized platforming, but still.

    Actually scratch that, Glover is the most underrated game of all time.

    Sonic Adventure 2 is 1/3 of a decent game

    I really like that 1/3 though

    Sonic Adventure is 1/3 of a decent(ish) game, 1/3rd of something not good but playable, and 1/3 complete garbage.

    Even when people liked it, they acknowledged the Emerald Hunts were the worst.

    Nope. They're fun.

    They kind of dicked up the radar but if you payed attention to the hints it wasn't a big deal.

    Curious to hear more about your Spelunky troubles. Is it just remembering what everything does? (Not to say I'm a pro, just that I've learnt most of it's harsh lessons.)

    I, for one, enjoyed the Mako.

    More that eventually forget to do something and it gets me killed. Like check for arrow traps before dropping down or not looking for spikes. Dumb stuff like that.

    You gotta be on point with that game constantly and I just can't do it.

    It's kinda like why my bloodborne play through has stalled out. You gotta really comit to that game and I'm not always interested in concentrating that hard.

    I don't know if I'd call psychonauts a good platformer. I love the game... But it's in spite of the platforming.

    No I don't.

    Comparing Psychonauts to SA2 should be illegal except to show people the difference between a classic and complete shit.

    They're roughly equal quality in the platforming department

    Look, I'm sorry someone slapped Psychonauts on the box of Bubsy 3D or something, but good god there is no other way to explain thinking the two even come close in platforming. Psychonauts is no Mario, but SA2 was garbage that actively reminded the player how much they were hated by the devs.

    SA2 wasn't something I liked at all.

    Psychonauts wasn't great in the platforming department, but it was at least worth my money.

    That isn't to say Psychonauts isn't better than SA2

    Holy shit it definitely is

    But they're not the same genre

    Be honest dude,

    Is there anything, anything at all I could say that would make you change your opinion on SA2?

    The answer is no, so I'm not even going to try.

    I guess I probably should have known better than to expect this thread to not be 50% shitting on games I like though.

    Then don't post instead of the super obnoxious "nah" reply. It's childish.

    Please tell me what would change your opinion on SA2.

    Also, I am super content praising something like Mega Man X rather than shitting on SA2.

    That game still holds up.

    Welcome to hyperbole for comedic effect, as opposed the to unfunny, rude post people have already made a thousand times before.

    So what will change your mind on SA2
