You kidding me? Nintendo is the ONLY one who CAN make good platformers without their characters getting killed in 10 years.
Crash Bandicoot- ruined after Crash Of the titans
Sonic-ruined after SEGA going out of hardware buisness
Sonic was not ruined from going out of the hardware business, over 75% of the sonic team left.
Crash Bandicoot was always developed by naughty dog and was amazing, then they traded it to almost 4 other companies. Everytime a development team changes the game is ruined. Final Fantasy and games like it are exceptions since each one in the series is different.
Mario also had his share of absolute gardbage, only the really big releases are good for mario. Hotel Mario, Mario and Sonic olympics and others.
Somewhere along the line the Sonic team forgot what was good. Even there newest game, the werehog one had good platforming sections. It's like they got it right! Until a minute and a half is over and your this stupid fucking werehog with god awful controls. They don't understand they can keep it 2d and make it good graphically and similiar to LBP but with fast paced platforming.
