We've seen a small resurgence in side-scrollers in the last year with games like Bionic Commando Rearmed, LittleBigPlanet, and Shadow Complex. Playing these games definitely feels nostalgic and I think most gamers appreciate the retro style every now and then, between the modern big budget titles that push your hardware to its limit. The time gap from the general extinction of side-scrollers to now also creates a bit of a strange situation, because gaming graphics have improved so much. This sudden emergence led to quite a bit of hype for Trine and Bionic Commando Rearmed, on the PC side of things, and playing Trine for the first time, after not playing any side-scrollers for years, was an outstanding experience."
