2D or 3D Platformers?

2D (Keep it Old School)
3D (This is the Future!)


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.

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.

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