Guessed by S.Peelman
Even though I was never able to beat this one back when I was a kid, it always stood out to me as the best of the original Donkey Kong Country trilogy, and it stands to reason. This game is just so extremely memorable. It had good level design, tight controls and lots of content like any other DKC game, but what really brought this to the next level were the crazy themes it had going in each world and level, represented perfectly with very memorable visuals and music. Diddy's Kong Quest was an absolutely amazing game, and still stands as the best in its franchise in the eyes of many.
