Banjo Kazooie and Conker's Bad Fur Day, they're my two favourite platformers on any system. If we're going to go off which game was the better platformer though? Banjo Kazooie easily. Conker's strengths don't lie in it's platforming gameplay, but in it's variety of gameplay styles and sense of humour.

Banjo Kazooie is my favourite 'pure' 3D plaform game, but Rocket: Robot on Wheels contains lots of fantastic non-platforming elements too.


Banjo-Kazooie - my favourite 'pure' 3D plaform game,

Conker's Bad Fur Day - a really inventive, but not too replayable, single player game, but I love the multiplayer modes, especially Beach, Heist and War: Colours (Colours is my favourite!) even though the multiplayer modes aren't really platformers,

Super Mario 64 - very good,

Donkey Kong 64 - not played enough to judge,

Banjo-Tooie - not played enough to judge, but seems great,

Rayman 2 The Great Escape - I've not played it,

Rocket Robot on Wheels - fantastic game, contains lots of fantastic non-platforming elements too,

Mystical Ninja 2 Starring Goemon - I've not played it,

Glover -I've not played enough to judge, but seems OK, but not strictly a platform game,

Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon - I've not played it,

Yoshi's Story - I've not played it,



Also, you missed out:

40 Winks (which was never released, but is available on the 'net now, though you'll need a flash cartridge (Everdrive 64, 64Drive, etc) to play it on a real N64, or else play it on an emulator) - I've not played enough to judge, but seems good,

Blues Brothers 2000 - I've not played it,

Space Station Silicon Valley - a great game, a puzzle platformer,

Tonic Trouble - I've not played it,

Earthworm Jim 3D - I've not played it,

Starshot: Space Circus Fever - I've not played it,

Chameleon Twist - I've not played it,

Chameleon Twist 2 - I've not played it,

Mischief Makers - - I've not played it, but I know it's a 2D platformer, and is supposed to be very good.


and probably more that I'm not aware of.
I'm a PC and console gamer - I love good games, regardless of their host system.

Sorry maybe my post is not very understandable, that was my favourite platform list, not the list of all N64 platform games.

Yes I didn't mention also a lot of games like:
Donald Duck Quack Attack (Goin' Quakers in the USA)
Disney's Tarzan
Tigger's Honey Hunt
Toy Story 2 Buzz Lightyear to the rescue
Taz Express
Duck Dodgers starring Daffy Duck
A Bug's Life
Doreaemon
Doraemon 2
Doraemon 3
Rugrats in Paris: the Movie
Gex 64: Enter the Gecko
Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko
Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

...and many others games with a lot of platform elements, for example
Castlevania
Castlevania Legacy of Darkness
Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine
Superman
Spider-Man
Even Zelda OoT and Majora's Mask despite the automatic jumps are probably more platformers than Conker's BFD hehe.


I really advice you to play Rayman 2, the game is a pure platform. So you can find the 2D platform dynamics in a 3D game, Rayman 2 is a real platformer.
If you think about Super Mario 64, BK, etc they are very different than the 2D platforms.
Platform sections are only a relatively small part of the game compared to the 2D platform, there are hub world, a lot of explorations, mission doesn't have start and finish but objectives and things to do, ecc.
We call them 3D Platform just because the most famous character of the genre was Mario. So when Mario is gone to 3D we all called the genre 3D platform, but the genre is very different.
Rayman 2 is very near than the 2D games but with a fantastic 3D graphic.
I love his atmospheres and musics, play it!
Tonic Trouble is very similar but more easy, less curated, worst graphics, smaller soundtrack, etc. You can finish it in a day believe me.

However I forgot to mention Mischief Makers in my chart.
