And it seems that my thread wasn't such a failure after all! BTW, I put Alien Fish Finger on my list; I'd completely forgotten about it.

I apologize in advance for any excessive quoting. It's a bad habit of mine.

No top tens, though. What can I say? I like lists.

What? If it has running, jumping, and platforms, it's a platform game! Adding features doesn't negate that!

THANK YOU. Honestly, people get so hung up on the cool concepts and puzzles and stuff that they forgive it for playing like crap. And it has ugly ST scrolling, too. At least it isn't as bad as Magic Pockets. God, what an awful game that was.

Excuse me while I move Flashback from my "Platform games" folder to my "Rotoscoped action-adventure-shooting-stealth games with RPG elements that just happen to feature running, jumping, and platforms" folder. All joking aside, how can a game with said elements not be a platform game? Don't give me any crap about the emphasis being on the puzzles or anything, because there's loads of other stuff, and because literally every platform game ever made has something besides the underlying platform structure. I suppose that Brian the Lion isn't a platform game either? I mean, you can punch enemies, like in a beat-em-up, right? Therefore, it isn't a platform game, and anyone who says that it is has missed the point completely.

...I apologize for the rant. I didn't intend for it to turn out like that.

Eww. No. It isn't even on the level of Bubsy the Bobcat.

...I think that I just reposted the whole thread.
