Recommend me a good platformer


I picked up some games from Steam and GOG this round, but they're just a few adventure games and shooters. I'm looking for some classic platform type games that I can pick up as well. What's the best of the best in this genre? Any recommendations?

Thx!

Easy:

Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends

Best platformers of all time. Worth every penny.

Sonic Mania is fantastic; it's right on par with Sonic 3 and Knuckles.
