Recommend me the best 2D side-scrollers, on any console. I want to get into miking vidya, and I figure this would make a good start.

It won't be a meteroidvania but I will lok into all recommendations.

Super Mario World is like the definitive best 2D platformer of all time. Gorgeous and creative level design, a plethora of unique levels, a challenge, satisfying secrets, best music and of course, solid as hell graphics.
There's also Super Metroid, another contender.

I've heard one of the Mega Mans fit into this category too but I haven't played any to say.

Cave story is pretty good

Thanks.

>Thomas Was Alone

Played it when it was free on PS+, didn't tthink much of it. That one twist was clever, tho.

Any side-scrollers with good combat? I liked Shank demo.

That's not a platformer. Otherwise the list is great, except for Fez.

Try Guacamelee. It is technically a Metroidvania, but it's pretty damn linear.

cavestory?
huh. i don't really know any besides fighting games obviously

>>261358914
I have always heard about Cave Story but never gotten around to playing it, what is the best version to play? I can do PC or 3DS but I'm not sure if the 3D version is worth it.
>>
>>261359481
he just said sidescroller so i thought i'd throw it in.
>except for FEZ
doin' a great job of fitting in, mate, enjoy your stay on 4chin

The freeware version. Cave Story + costs money, but has a worse translation, looks worse, and the music is worse.

people will argue against shovel knight but it's level design is actually great at teaching things to the player for the most part

play that and pay attention to how it introduces and eases the player into whatever concept/obstacles that particular level has
>>
>>261359790
It's just not even what somebody is looking for when they ask for a platformer. It's an atmospheric exploration game with shitty puzzles.
>>
>>261359837
alright thanks, much appreciated

>>261359956
...in which you jump on platforms to explore.

I have played it. The strange geography was effective, but the game is otherwise unremarkable.

what makes a game remarkable, anon-kun?

I'd suggest castlevania: symphony of the night

>>261357972
Some guy wrote a thesis on Wario Land 4, you could play it and read the hundreds of pages when you're done
>>
>>261360559
Being unique, fun to play, or well crafted.

People who aren't nostalgic for classicvanias usual like all recent 2D Castlevania games, they're all mostly great. In fact, I'd say it's better to start with resent Castlevanias since it will deepen your appreciation for the previous titles if you ever get around to playing them.
