Re: Favorite traditional 2D platformers?

I don't know if these count, due to the action mechanics, but...

Ristar (Genesis)
Batman (NES)
Rocket Knight Adventures (Genesis)

The Umihara Kawase series, especially if you're into Bionic Commando-style grappling. For that matter, Bionic Commando is awesome... I really liked the PS3 remake too.
I review (mostly old) games at: The Annals of Retrodom.

The traditional 2D rayman games are the first Rayman on PS1, Rayman Origins on Wii/PS3/360, and Rayman Legends on WiiU.
