What's Happening to 2D Platformers?

Leviathyn.com | "It doesn’t matter what generation you’re from. If you consider yourself a video game fan you enjoy a good 2D platformer every now and again. They might not be your favorite genre, but there’s a sense of respect you should have for classic series like Mega Man and Super Mario Bros.
The problem is these games aren’t in as big of demand as the next Halo or Elder Scrolls game. The popularity of the genre is declining because they don’t have the flashy graphics of storylines of the blockbuster hits. Besides, there is a profit margin to think of, and who in their right mind is going to spend $60 on a puzzle platformer?" (Fez, Limbo, PC, PS3, Super Meat Boy, Xbox 360)
