Super Mario Bros 3 without a doubt. I love the Megaman series as well but I couldn't just choose one so I will have to give it to Super Mario Bros 3.

Donkey Kong Country Returns
I can go on and on, why this is the best. Difficulty, Co-Op Simplicity, Visuals, Addictive, and best of all, level design. Each level has its own reason to be remembered. It did practically everything perfect, to the nail.
Donkey Kong Country Returns is my favorite game of all time, let alone favorite sidescroller.

My favorite (overlooked) platformer is Ristar, such a great game with amazing visuals and soundtrack, it's such a shame Sega never made a sequel.

If I had to name my favorite platformer of all time...........there's just to much that I can't name a favorite.
