Depending on how you look at them, 3D Platform games are either in the midst of a revival, or they never left.
I am so happy these games are making a comeback. Super Mario Odyssey looks fucking amazing, and I loved Yooka Laylee. Haven't tried the Crash remastered games but I own them. Just haven't gotten around to it yet.
My favorite kind of games. If not top 3
3D platformers never left
The problem is that they did. If you look back last gen, we basically had two choices, Mario or Ratchet and Clank. So basically Ratchet and Clank was solely keeping the platformer alive on non-Nintendo platforms and I commend Insomniac for that hefty task.
Nah I can look at the past years and still see various 3D platformers besides those two franchises
Never been my cup of tea but I'm glad they are back on the rise for fans of platformers. I'll be happy when games like Ninja Gaiden and Devil May Cry are on the rise again.
