Although Mighty No. 9 was a bit of a letdown, there are so many good Playstation 4 platform games that it's hard to even know where to begin. This list ranks the best PS4 platforming games, including Guacamelee!, the remake of Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, and Shovel Knight. If you're a fan of Metroid-Vania types, then you simply must play Axiom Verge. The insane part of this amazing game is that is was created by a single person, a project that was years in the making. It's eerily similar to Super Metroid, but with enough character of its own to categorize it as more than just a clone.

It seems like '90s kids would appreciate these PS4 platformers more than current-gen gamers who play a lot of shooters, but let's not make generalizations! Vote up the platform games for Playstation 4 that you enjoyed the most, and downvote any that didn't float your boat.
