    So I just got myself a xbox360 controller for the PC after gaming with a KBD/M since forever and this has led to a renewed interest in 2d platformers for me. Playing with a controller is definitely easier for 2d games and I have just started playing some good ol' 2d platformers out there.

    Here is the list I have played/planning to play in the near future. Please do suggest if you have any others to add:

    Rayman Origins
    Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams
    Sonic series
    Braid
    Life Goes On
    Rochard
    Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit

    Have already played the Trine and Shank games in the past with a KB/M :)

    wow thanks for the barrage of games! :)

    heard a lot about Super MeatBoy and that its a tough as nails hardcore platformer! Giana was pretty hard for me - will try this one out too.

    @MerolaC: 2.5 is also welcome :)

    Strider is a pretty excellent metroidvania style game, if you want to move past pure platforming.

    And Cave Story+

    Really liked Bastion when it came out - is there a sequel planned for it as would love to dive back in?

    Spelunky and Super Meat Boy are my two favourites. Rogue Legacy is great too, although I struggle with it :D

    Nah (don't think the story really needs it personaly), but they are working on a similar style of game with a new setting, due out next month.
