Once you start getting some upgrades you will change your kind and the sequel I think handles better.Celeste and SM64
So many said Ori. I'm playing Ori now and my initial impression was that it's too floaty. I'm adjusting though and it's starting to click. Perhaps i'll agree once I finish
On the contrary there are still very well playable and the platforming is still as rewarding as ever. The grid system was a genious idea and was what made Tomb Raider what it was. Proove of that is how active the community of the Tomb Raider Level Editor still is today 20 years after Core Design released it to the public.There's nothing worse than platforming with tank controls. These games are barely playable these days.

I don't think any modern 3D platformer will be as enjoyable as classic TR still is 20 years from now.
Completely different games. I'm not even sure why are you comparing them. Mario 64 was great for kids but classic Tomb Raider had a much more intelligent gameplay and satisfying control system.
Playing Mario 64 or any of the 3D Mario games back-to-back with the old Tomb Raider games is like comparing a modern Traxxas RC car to a Boy Scouts Derby car.
Definitely Mario Sunshine for 3d, and New Super Mario Bros. Ds for 2d gamesWhat do you guys think are the best feeling or controlling platforming games?
Maybe do one for 2D and one for 3D.
This isn't necessarily a question of " Which is the best platformer ever"
Let me explain the difference. I love Donkey Kong tropical Freeze but I would say controls and feeling wise it's not the best of it's genre. It's designed to feel heavy and that's cool cause it's donkey Kong but I enjoy platforming games that are fast and light feeling.
Also I dislike the feel of any 2D Yoshi games.
Or any of the Rare N64 platformers (conker feels the best though)
My 2D choices are:
Feels amazing. I could do without the 8bit graphics but still it feels great to play and very satisfying when you hit a complicated jump.
Ori and the will of the wisps:
Cheating a bit here as it's not a platformer but still it controls like no other, extremely fun to zip around the map once you've powered up fully.
Sonic Rush adventure ( on the DS):
The original 2D sonic games I prefer overall and mania just missed out here but I cannot deny how much fun it is to boost around a colourful map using the Rush mechanics.
It's one of those games I lose myself to.
Super Mario world GBA:
I could be misremembering here. I love the original SNES one as well and it's better in almost every way BUT the feel is a little tighter in the Advance 2 version in my ooinion.
I can not stand the movement in the NEW super mario games.
Donkey Kong Country 2:
This game when you pick Diddy Kong feels amazing. It's so fast and fun. Again I love Tropical Freeze and also enjoy the platforming but the edge goes to the 2nd game.
Super Mario Sunshine:
I think all 3D mario games are quality here but the edge to me goes to Sunshine. Although not my favourite 3D game I think this game controls like a dream. Mario has so many moves and animations it's staggering. Years later I think figure out new moves like the rope spin and jump. Playing this with a GameCube controller is a must though.
Crash Bandicoot NSane Trilogy(Only the 60fps pc version)
I was very hard on this game when it was released. I loved the originals but found the NSane trilogy for the PS4 to have wonkier controls than the original and I found a lot of people felt the same.
I'm not sure whether it clicked with me better the second time or whether the 60fps mode made all the difference but it plays soooo much better on the PC. Get that version if you can.
Now this game isn't perfect. The jetski Coco missions from crash 3 are worse than the original but for the general platforming. This is one of the best I've played for a linear platforming game.
I belatedly second this. One of my favorite games of all time.Klonoa Door to Phantomville on PS1 had a good tight feel. I'd say somewhat tactile feel, that you felt like you are in control at all times.
2D I think the Messenger is one of the most fun feeling platformers in awhile. The cloud jump following attacks plays like a dream.
