Platform Game Recommendations

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Any good platform games for the PC? Thinking more along the lines of Mario 64 or Psychonauts, something arcade-style, rather than 1st/3rd person shooters with platform elements. Don't see many on the PC. Any worth tracking down?

Will check it out. Cheers!

I was thinking more 3D platform games, but 2D is also good.

I played a 2D platform game called Braid a while back. That was interesting.
