You guys are amazing. I didn’t expect a lot of people to pitch into the 2D platformer wiki page, but wow — it’s exploded. With hugeness! Some people have been splitting hairs (“Does x game really belong? Is it OK to include y platform?”). Don’t split hairs! I believe in the art of building an oversized list which you then whittle down to the essentials. You guys are great.
So, I’m going to push my luck with a parallel venture pinning down my second favorite genre: 2D action RPGs. You know, like Soul Blazer, or The Legend of Zelda, or Rocket Slime. Or Symphony of the Night. Yeah, that’s right. Overlap. Please feel free to help out with that one, too!
And now I go to sleep so I can drive to E3 tomorrow before the sun is up. Huzzah.
