3D platformers are a staple of PlayStation consoles. When players think of the original PlayStation, many think of iconic series such as Spyro the Dragon and Crash Bandicoot. Not only were 3D platformers system sellers, they were the face of the entire platform. This has slowly changed over time as shooters and action games became the face of Sony’s PS3,

It would certainly be premature to say that 3D platformers are back in full force, but the recent Kickstarter success of Playtonic Games’ Yooka-Laylee shows that there is still consumer demand and passionate fans that want 3D platformers back into their lives. So, with the beloved genre back in the minds of the gaming populace, we here at PlayStation LifeStyle thought it would be fun to take a look back at the 15 PlayStation 3D platformers that you really ought to give a go.

Check out our list below of which platformers we think should be played by all!

While there are not a ton of 3D platformers currently in development, Yooka-LayleeLegend of Kay: Anniversary, and the Ratchet & Clank reboot should provide a fun time for platform fanatics in the next two years. Sony might even have some surprises in store for us at E3 as both Sly Cooper and Knack could possibly see sequels.

Let us know what you thought of our list and what other PlayStation 3D platformers you felt deserved a mention in the comments below!
