Whether you love a bit of Sonic the Hedgehog or Ratchet & Clank, platforming games have remained relevant no matter which generation of consoles you grew up with. This year however, the Blue Blur wins out against some pretty stiff competition, with Sonic Superstars bagging our gong for Best Platformer Game of 2023. Congratulations, SEGA!
