    It is a very popular genre, but that doesn't mean everyone is good at them!

    I suck

    It's probably the genre that I excel in the most. Thousands of hours poured into Mario games have honed my skills. I am awesome.

    I do pretty well, I like to think. Honestly Mario is pretty easy.

    I'm not terrible at them, though they're not my genre of choice, and that's RPGs that I'm good at, and rhythm games which I'm unbeatable at.

    I don't have the time (or skill) for those Mario Maker levels that require you to memorize a series of pinpoint steps to complete it but otherwise I rock these games.

    Platformers are my favorite genre but, as Super Meat Boy has shown me, I'm not especially good at them.

    I think I'm decent, but hell Champion's Road doesn't make me feel like it. I've been trying to beat it for a year now.

    There was a time when I could get through the Megamans, Contras, Castlevanias, and Metroids like a boss. Find all the secrets, never die, etc. I guess those are a little different from Mario, Sonic, Earthworm Jim, or whatever, but I was pretty great at those too.

    That continued with the 3D platformers like Mario 64, Jax and Daxter, and Tomb Raider.

    Now I'd say I'm very average. I don't play them nearly as much.

    When I think of platformer games, I think of Crash Bandicoot, Aladdin, Sonic, Earthworm Jim, etc. I'm decent at them, but they aren't a favourite genre of mine by any means. Just one that I occasionally play.

    Once upon a time I was pretty good at them, but I've probably lost my skills since I don't play the genre as much anymore.

    I'm ok at them if they are designed intuitively or puzzle platformers and not the type that require insane timing or precise spacial alignment.

    My Platform Gaming List:

    Spyro 2: Completed (but I think the epilogue is a cop out pile of crap)
    Crash Bandicoot: Completed (but didn't get all the Crystals)
    Rayman 3: Attack of the Hoodlums: What the-? I get through half of it then- big boss on a stage surrounded by firey lava thing I always fall into? Forget it
    Early Sonic Games: Still attempting them from time to time
    Mario 1 - 3: Can't play them well...I'm sorry but...I can't....
    Castlevania IV: Love what you can do with that whip, and the music and graphics are retrotastic but- sadly can't complete it.
