    I will not die in peace until I have a new 3D Rayman game xD Rayman 2 and 3 are among some of my favorite games ever and I'm still sad 4 got cancelled.

    4 got cancelled? I never heard about that, that's really sad. I've only played 1 (partially) and two myself, and Rayman 2 is definitely an amazing game.

    Yeah during early development. It's even more sad because the tutorial character in Rayman 3 even says "See you in Rayman 4"

    Fucking pulled a Banjo-Kazooie there. At the end of Banjo-Tooie, the villain says "I'll see you in Banjo-Threeie". Instead we got... Nuts n Bolts. God damn.

    On a completely unrelated note, Rayman should totally be in Smash 5.

    I've only really played the first one and then one for I think it was PS2 I don't remember the name of. I really enjoyed the one for PS1, it was the kind of game I used to play a lot back then.

    I haven't played any new ones that might have popped up since them so I don't know if the franchise is still the one I remember.

    Origins and Legends came out somewhat recently, they were completely different though xD

    Man, I used to love Rayman 2 as a kid. I never managed to complete it back then (mostly due to that one lava level with the plums being super finicky), but years later I finally did manage to beat it. I do wish they would remake Rayman 3 though. That one was one of my favorite games ever.

    And then Raving Rabbids came along. I was so disappointed when I realized it was just a weird and silly minigame collection. I was half-expecting them to stick to the platforming genre, but they didn't. I've been in a love/hate relationship with the Rabbids since (they have their quirky charms, but I still hate them for putting the Rayman series down immensely).

    Haven't played Origins and Legends yet. I'm sure they're good games that have gone back to their Rayman 1 roots, but I was picky and it wasn't what I was looking for.

    There was a Rayman game ported to the Switch I believe. I downloaded a demo and played it briefly; it was an alright game, but didn't have the charm I was expecting from a Rayman game. Perhaps part-nostalgia bound, but I feel like they've lost some spirit along the way.

    It was legends I think, I'm happy there's some more games that are at least decent. But I don't think they're even made by the same people, not sure, but it would explain the lack of charm.

    I've only seen gameplay of the Rayman games, but sadly I just don't like the art style, it just isn't for me.

    Rayman Legends is the one that I've seen, I think.

    Ah yeah, that's one of the newer ones. They had a very distinct and different artstyle.
    I actually just bought Legends and Origins on Steam because they were on sale xD
