Best Side-scrolling Platformers

Please add more games to this list. There are tons and tons of side-scrollers.

The Top TenXW

1Super Mario Bros.

This will be the greatest ever. This is like Tom n Jerry cartoon; no matter how old, always the best

This started side-scrolling platformers pretty much. - Jammer196

One of the best games, no wonder it's number 1 spot.

2Super Mario Bros. 3
3Little Big Planet 2

Xander VERSUS The World: The True Story is a phenomenally underrated series of levels created by me on LBP2. Go play them to remind yourself of the days when this game actually had some interesting, quality platforming and originality left in it. - xandermartin98

4Sonic the Hedgehog 2

This was absolutely beautiful!

This should be on top. My favorite side scroller is the first Sonic game, but this is technically the "best". At least way better platforming than New super Mario Bros and Little Big Planet.
