Single Status Update
I just can't seem to get into games like Mario. I think it is mostly because of the momentum which always fucks up my jumps. Even the most basic jumping challenges make me very nervous. The whole game is a bit like walking on ice: I always feel like I'm about to fall.
I dunno, maybe it's because I'm using a keyboard (never had any consoles). Or perhaps it's a skill that you can only learn as a kid. But games like "I wanna be the guy" seem so much more comfortable to me. Like, I actually feel like I'm in control and there are no weird forces screwing with my movement.

N++ was on xbox 360 as well was it not? I remember it being quite fun.
N+ was ufortunately a DS, PSP and Xbox 360 exclusive. I think each one had different maps too.
The good news is that N++ actually has a whole section of levels that are the curated selection of maps from the older versions of the game, in some cases slightly updated.
...actually wait a minute, maybe that's not such a good...
...damnit, apparently this thing is in the game too, though thankfully not until the E tier of levels where it belongs and not 14 freakin' 4.
I've always been a fan of platformers, at least up until the cheap flash-era games came about.
The N series of games were a ton of fun; I'd forgotten that a new one just came out. I need to get that at some point... N also always reminded me a bit of Lode Runner, on the visual side of things, which perhaps makes it a bit more nostalgic to me.
