10 Awesome Platformers Not Made By Nintendo

WC writes: Although Nintendo was a driving force of the platformer genre, it absolutely has not had a monopoly on the market. There have been a number of spectacular games that have been created by other studios and released on platforms other than those belonging to Nintendo. Some of these games bring a lot to the table, and have offered creative and innovative advances to the platformer genre.

If you’re a fan of 2D platformer games, here are a few great games not made by Nintendo that are definitely worth a play-through. (Braid, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, LittleBigPlanet, PC, PS3, Retro, Xbox 360)

Actually, there are good platformer games made by Indie. I have played some of those IP on Steam. And I'm still supporting some of the game on Greenlight..
