I will explain myself..
First yooka-laylee is nice but that not my point..
I finally bought a switch and mario odyssey.. and the game is really amazing i have to said it , you have to explore all level and think how to get some moons.. the game is really amazing..
but i say playtonic saved platform game because of this.. If playtonic never existed, i think we would never get a mario odyssey. Playtonic forced nintendo to give a inspired game , and honestly if playtonic was not here.. i doubt we would get a super game like mario odyssey..
Yooka-laylee is really good but to me , but i think playtonic forced nintendo to make a inspired mario and they did..
Mario galaxy 2, mario 3d land was linear and without effort and creativity.. but mario odyssey is really a masterpiece , and playtonic is a reason to me.
