The first three Spyro the Dragon games on PS1. Great games, couldn't put them down!

This is tough. Super Mario 64 is the obvious choice for me, but then there's Spyro, the Crash Bandicoot series, the Oddworld games, Jak&Daxter (first game only, the rest are awful) and Klonoa is also brilliant.

16-Bit - Sonic 3 & Knuckles
32-Bit 2D - Abe's Oddysee
32-Bit 3D - Tomb Raider - best level design and atmosphere iv ever experienced.
64-Bit - Mario 64
128-Bit 2D - Viewtiful Joe
128-Bit 3D - Mario Sunshine
The square is a great shape, and one that is criminally underused in modern game design. In the push to ever more granular, chaotic environments, games have lost sight of the simple pleasures of right angles and straight lines.

Any of the Crash Bandicoot titles. Great fun, all of 'em. And with several endings to aim for there's plenty of longer-term challenge involved, too.

Good call. I'm tempted to go with that too, but I'd probably give the nod to Abuse.

Conker's Bad Fur Day. That little turd was the best thing to happen to platformers since a certain carpenter decided to change careers.

Seeing as I got Ratchet and Clack in the Current Gen one (the HD remakes)...

Spyro 3. The game is a complete joy. I would probably have bought the skateboarding mini-game as a full game in its own right. Shame the series whimpered out with the PS2 etc versions and then morphed into those annoying Skylander things. I just hope we see a Spyro Trilogy HD pack soon.

Mario 64. Jaws were dropped on that day. Still fantastic to play, intuitive controls, Clever level designs, loads of re-play value. Jolly Roger Bay is stunning with its own giant eel and superb music.

8-bit - Super Mario Bros. 3
16-bit - Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
32-bit - Rayman
64-bit - Donkey Kong 64
SD generation - Super Mario Galaxy
HD generation - none yet, but I guess I'd say Super Mario 3D World if I had a Wii U

Forget it, it's just the_expendable90 raising yet another long-forgotten zombie thread from the grave.
