    My g/f today asked me to recommend her some games for the PS3. She hasn't really played anything since the NES days. Wizards and Warriors + Mario are what she remembers liking so I'm grabbing the Capcom Classics Collection for PS2 (since I have a bc PS3) so she can rock the Ghosts n Goblins.

    Are there any newer PSN titles out there that provide a similar experience to the old school side-scrolling games? Any old school games available through PSN that I'm missing?

    get LBP, between the great gameplay and dressing up characters she'll love it.

    My fiance loved LBP yet hates all other games. Its easy to pick up and play, and you can coop with up to 4 people on the same PS3 or over PSN. Also tons of good free downloadable levels to play.

    I'm IMing with her about it and she's saying she wants demons and ghosts and such... yet she's never heard of Castlevania. Girls. :hsugh:.

    Going to go with the Capcom collection and see what she thinks about Medieval and Maximo.

    if she played wizards and warriors, i dont think she should have much trouble. w&w was a tough platformer.

    your gf has better taste in games than you do. Medieval and maximo are garbage, give her sotn and ghouls and ghosts instead. castle crashers if you want a game to play together

    LBP just to ease her into it then hit her with SOTN after and see if she likes it.

    What are we talking about again?

    How is Myst a platformer? :hsugh: Noobs. Not even a side-scroller.

    LittleBigPlanet. SOTN would prob be too hard, being non-linear and all.

    To be honest, PS3/PSN isn't fantastic for platformers. Crash Bandicoots are on PSN :dunno: Get her a DS, way more platformers on there.

    Gunstar Heroes is 2.99 on PSN this week, that's a side-scroller. Pretty sure it's two player co op as well, could be fun to play. PixelJunk Shooter isn't a platformer side-scroller but it's a side-scroller nonetheless that has two players co op. I'll be picking that up after Christmas to play with my gf :cool:
