    Are there any real fans of platformer games? What interesting things can you advise 2019-2020?
    Desirable online games, can be multiplayer.
    Sometimes I want to play games of this genre, but I searched for a long time, I canít find something to really attract me.

    Sorry, it's difficult to recommend much these days. Platform elements ended up getting absorbed into the action/adventure/open-World genres.

    If you want want new, pure platform gaming experiences it will be on Nintendo consoles or with indie titles.

    It really depends on the balance you're looking for, there is a healthy amount of platforming in games like Horizon Zero Dawn or Asassin's Creed it depends on whether you want to deal with everything else in there too.

    I dunno about Dead Cells, to me the platforming in that is pretty secondary to the combat. But yeah, as stated above it's a genre that's mostly been mixed into other ones.

    I guess if you want the "pure" experience... Celeste? Super Meat Boy? I don't particularly like either of those, but I'd definitely call them platformers.

    I remember the platformer games only on the consoles 2000 years.
    Yes, itís really hard to give good advice. I remember I really liked platformer games on Nintedo and Sega consoles. And I could play for hours. It was an interesting time. If we talk about modern computer indie games, perhaps I'm waiting game about weird russian. In any case, judging by the videos, this is a cool action. By the way, I watched the cartoon BOMJMAN, itís really strange, real hardcore. What do you think?

    I'll throw a recommendation in for Doom Eternal as that's got some amazing platforming.

    Guacamelee for fun, every time.

    If you prefer the masochist approach then Hollow Knight or Horace.

    By the way, many platform games exist on smartphones. But I like PC games more, and console games are better, this is a special charm))
