I think if you create a topic asking a statistical question, you should be required to keep statistics on it. Otherwise it's rather meaningless.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

Main reason: You can find cool shortcuts.

And you can find cool shortcuts in 2D platformers too. In fact, I can think of a lot of games with interesting shortcuts, while I can't think of any in 3D games.

2D because it's easy for developers to get a little carried away and make some 3D platformers a bit more complex than they need to be. Like in some 3D platformers I actually find it easy getting lost in certain stages or games.

I'd have to vote for 2D. I love both, and while you can do things with 3D platformers that could never be done with 2D platformers, 3D games have unavoidable camera issues that never arise in 2D games, which takes away from my enjoyment of them.

Mario 64 & Banjo Kazooie are the reasons I fell in love with 3D platforming. Tis a true shame that the genre is ignored somewhat these days, on Wii anyway (except SMG).

3D!

Same here. I love 2D platforming, but 3D platformers are my favorites. My first 3D platformers are Super Mario 64 and Banjo-Kazooie.

@SuperSonic: And they were the best ones too, it makes me sad. Sunshine was excellent for platforming, you could pull some crazy schnizz. I don't really count SMG though, as there wasn't as much raw platforming i thought. Do you remember Rocket & Glover on teh 64?

EDIT: Space Station Silicon Valley! I pray that comes to VC one day.

I would actually count Galaxy as 2D & 3D, as there were plenty of sections of 2D gaming. I like this development.

You should play Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. It's AWESOME!

EDIT: Wait, you don't conssider Galaxy's platforming to be "raw" enough? Maybe you won't like N&B then.
