I fucking love platformers. Can't get enough of hopping and collecting. Want to talk about them and get recommendations for ones I haven't played.
Pic related, what I'm playing and I'm surprised isn't bad.
>you can't talk about a retro game genre if I don't like it!
Here's a good platformer that isn't talked about too often. The music is great, there's an on-the-spot character switch feature, a plot-important missable weapon, and it actually provides some hint on how the series would've ended. I fucking loved this game.
Note this is the Genesis version of Pirates of Dark Water. The SNES version is your standard beat em up.
I enjoyed muysa and metal morph

The first 2 games mentioned are a little obscure and aren't amazing but still worth playing.
I actually tried that game out about a month ago. I didn't really like it much. I personally prefer platformers that don't have giant sprites.
That being said, I didn't play it much. It seems like it would be pretty good if I got the hang of it.
Get yourself Kega Fusion, and the Sega CD/Mega CD BIOS. Then get a copy of The Terminator PAL version. The reason for this is because the NTSC version's videos don't have the audio from the movie, but instead play the theme music for 10 out of 11 of the videos. Enjoy the soundtrack, enjoy the action, rock some shit.
PROTIP: you can climb more than just the obvious ladders.
Recently finished. Pretty decent if easy. Boosting got pretty uncontrollable at times though. I wish I had a friend to try out multiplayer with.
I only really played it to see where the Brutal Mario romhack took the graphics/music from. Also I didn't realise the Kirby reference... If it is one - were there developers who worked on both?
I had no idea Sunsoft made the Genesis game, gotta be a hell of a lot more fun than the SNES one then.
Recently I've been hooked on Spelunker. It's so frustrating and yet so addictive once you get used to the controls. Also trying yet again to get into the Genesis Sonic games, but it's still not clicking for me.
