Yooka-Laylee: Is It Time For The Return of 3D Platformers?

Dan Curtis of Factory Sealed writes: Around a week ago, a bunch of veteran game developers and masterminds created a Kickstarter page. What happened afterwards proved one thing: gamers are crying out for the return of a forgotten genre.

Yes! It would be great to have a huge world to explore with areas to unlock. Mario64/Sunshine/Bajo Kazooie/Conker's Bad Fur Day etc....those were good times.

Now with the newer consoles games like this should really POP!

Like a Pixar movie in FullHD

Yes! Please give so many 3D platformers. I don't even care if they are shitty or rehashed.

Where have you people been hiding for the past 7 years? We got a Ratchet every year, Sly, Mario, Jak and many more.
Yooka is a proof that platformers are going nowhere when you see how fast it reached the kickstarter..

yes of course it is... but why so much talking and so much surprise from a promising 3d platformer like Yooka lalee and not KNack which is already released , its solid ,well made and plays extremely well??? ..oohh i see it s exclusive...and the majority of COD playing media didnt like it

Check out A Hat in Time. It's another kickstarter platformer that was inspired by all the old Rare platformers. I am really looking forward to its release this year.

Like i said it before in an article, 3D platformers it's one of my favorite genres

contradictory955d ago

Clearly it is.
also bring back JRPG's damnit!

(i am aware that JRPG's are still being made but they are not that common... and most of the time not that great if you ask me... Atlus and Level-5 still occasionally push out some really good ones and Pokemon obviously too...)

Man_Marmalade954d ago

jrpg's are still a thing. they never died out.

contradictory954d ago

that's exactly what i said no?
but seriously it used to be a lake of quality JRPG's but now it's more like a pond with a couple of rainy days once in a while...

The amount of JRPG's on PS2 compared to today is miniscule

Man_Marmalade954d ago

Jrpg's are plenty common btw

cpayne93954d ago

Really good ones aren't.
