Is there any decent platform style games available these days? (More specifically for the xbox360).

It's not as good now everything has to be 3D, i.e. Sonic is fuckin shite now.

What's available?

Sonic's crap. Is that Viva Pinata a platform style game, or is it a bit errr young for me? Also Lego Star Wars? They're the couple that google came up with but i've never seen either in action.

Any help appreciated I just want a nice easy game where I have to progress through the levels, as opposed to another FPS game

Sweet

It's crap when that's the only possibility out of all the games available

The thing is, games are all graphics orientated these days. There's no games available these days that'll still be played in 10 years. Not like the snes, megadrive, etc. They'll always be classics. It was more about the gameplay, as there was no super duper graphics to fall back on.

Should get a wii and buy Zelda, Nintendo's emphasis is still on gameplay as it always has been.

I always believe that Nintendo has the best grip on gameplay and games that are fun to play. 360 and PS3 may have the better graphics but theres not one game I own (apart from Lego Star Wars 2 and PGR3) that make me want to play everyday.
