Great work chaps, 93 games have been nominated so far.

There is still plenty of time to get your votes in before it closes, if you haven't done so so far.

Space Station Silicon Valley. Good game and great concept. I got it on rental from Blockbuster at the time and someone had unlocked most of the levels. I didn't realise at the time, and didn't have a clue what I was doing. :lol:

Donkey Kong 64 gets a vote from me too, had a lot of fun with that.... "Mmmmm, banana!"

Can't believe I missed off the single greatest 8 bit platformer of all time - Head over Heels.

It's gonna be pretty difficult to narrow it down to just 10 particularly since the Super Mario series could easily account for all 10 but I'll try. These are in no particular order,

Super Mario World
Super Mario 64
Super Mario Galaxy
Banjo Kazooie
Conker's Bad Fur Day
Shovel Knight
Megaman 2
Duck Tales
Jak and Daxter The Precursor Legacy
Wario World

Crackdown, while great isn't really a platformer.

Also, the list is far too Nintendo-centric for my liking.
