2D or 3D Platformers?

2D (Keep it Old School) 14 40.00%
3D (This is the Future!) 21 60.00%

Simple Question whats better? I play Lots of Nintendo Games, Mario has alot of both platformers, Metroid is good with both IMO, DK 64 was good but i like 2D more as it gives more of a Challege.

I play other consoles which has excellent 2D platformers like Rayman and Sonic!

3D platformers always been amazing such as SMG/SMG2 and Crash Bandicoot!

So without Console Wars, What is just better in General? 2D or 3D?

They are both good, but I think 3D is a little nicer.

The one you like the most...

I am very 50/50 on this but in the end i choose 3D because it offers more, but 2D is more challenging IMO!!! AAaaaahhh

There have been a lot of good 3D platformers, but 2D platformers are the best. 2.5D is also 2D. They might have 3D graphics, but the gameplay is still 2D.

Super Mario Galaxy, 'nuff said.


Metroid 3D
Mario.....cant decide....both
Donkey 2D
Rayman 2D

Super Mario 64 rules.

2D for me. Once Mario went 3D I completely lost interest. I just don't like how 3D platformers play and control.
