Re: Quick reference guide to the history of Platform Adventu

So I got a bit sidetracked in the past few months and then played a couple more recent ones (Aquaria and Hollow Knight), which I'll probably add later on but I'm back to covering 90s games again and have added info on Exile 2 and System Shock recently.

Next one will probably be Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver.

Latest update: Info and mini-reviews added for Soul Reaver 1 and Tail Concerto plus various minor updates to earlier entries. SR1 is a pretty good fit and can be made very open with a few basic codes they included, while TC started out promising but was apparently rather linear and bare bones.

I started playing Ape Escape, which seems like more of an outlier so far (and an anomaly in terms of controls, which can't be re-configured). Seems like a pretty fun game though.
