Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
Super Nintendo / Rareware / 1995
The second installment in the Donkey Kong Country series, Diddy's Kong Quest is most people's favorite entry and definitely the best from the original trilogy. This game was really dark for what you'd expect from this franchise, with somber visuals, atmosphere and an absolutely incredible soundtrack that perfectly reflected and enhanced the feel of this world. It had some brighter levels, some obscure ones and some really creepy ones at times, and it all culminated in one of the finest platformers ever.
