The Top Ten

1 Mario

The best sonic game doesn't even compete with the worst mainline Mario game.

2 Crash Bandicoot

Crash Bandicoot 1, 2, 3 Outsold Mario in their time. Best Platformer back then. Good trilogy. Exciting levels. Great soundtrack. Replayability. Sony needs to bring them back, it'd be great to have a reboot on the PS4.

3 Ratchet & Clank

I'm really glad you included Ratchet and Clank! - Garythesnail

4 Rayman
5 Spyro The Dragon Spyro The Dragon Spyro is a series of platform games which primarily features the protagonist Spyro the Dragon and his friend, Sparx the Dragonfly.
6 Sonic

Shouldn't even be top ten with how low of a quality this series can be.

7 Kirby
8 Donkey Kong
9 Megaman
10 Jak

The Contenders

11 Battleblock Theater
12 Metroid

How is this not on the top 10

13 Banjo Kazooie

Even though I like Mario and Crash Bandicoot, Banjo Kazooie on the 64 had very good platforming elements and a good soundtrack.

14 Cave Story
15 Shovel Knight
16 Shantae
17 Sly Cooper
18 Gex
19 LittleBigPlanet
20 Castlevania
