The one with the Lombrax, for obvious reasons.

I enjoy both but it has to go to Mario. Although I don't really consider R+C to be a platformer its more of a shooter in my eyes.



With the announcement of Rift Apart, I've been thinking about this a lot recently... is Ratchet & Clank even a platformer? I played a few hours of the Remake and while it had some light platforming elements most of it was 3rd person action. I feel like it just gets lumped in with platformers because it is an anthropomorphic mascot game. Or did the other titles have a lot more platforming?



I love Ratchet & Clank, but Super Mario is Super Mario.



Ratchet games are incredible, and the new one is the game I'm most looking forward to of the announced ps5 games. Mario is gaming past and present. While Mario has some misses like the last two New Super Mario games, Mario wins by a landslide for me not just to Ratchet but to all game series except maybe Zelda.

Goooooood. You are correct.

Ratchet and Clank is NOT a platformer. If you think Ratchet and Clank is a Platformer then you also think Mega Megan Legends and Devil May Cry. What separates platformers from games with jumping is that platforming is a hazrd and not just a  means to get somewhere.

To answer the question though, Mario without even having to think about it.  



Neither, I haven't played ratchet and clank and jumping around as Mario isn't fun to me since im not the biggest fan of platformers.



Both are great. I've spent a lot more time playing Mario games, and I've been with that series (broadly speaking) since I was a kid. But, the R&C game for PS4 was my favorite platformer of the generation. I voted R&C just cuz.

I must say that this new Lombrax is rather cute.



I enjoy the humor and story in Ratchet and Clank way more but Mario is more of an actual platformer. 

There are platforming aspects to Ratchet and Clank but I'd more associate the Jak series with platforming more.
