I'm really just tired of all the platformers on Nintendo platformers, and all of the platformers being pushed out by Indie developers. Don't get me wrong, some of them are fantastic--Guacamelee, Giana Sisters, Mark of the Ninja, Rogue Legacy, Shovel Knight, and so on--but most are simply unremarkable. Or bad.

These days, if you're going to develop a platformer--especially a 2D platformer--you really need to try and make it as unique and interesting as possible.

As a huge fan of platformers, I strongly disagree. My gaming roots are in platformers and I'm glad the genre has finally made a comeback. Though, I will agree that it would be nice to see more creativity in the genre.

I wouldn't mind it so much if the WiiU had a more diverse library. But it doesnt.
