What's everyone's opinion on playing Collectathon or Point A to Point B platformers?
I've always wondered this and I guess a little poll will give me an idea, personally I'm a big fan of collectathon's they just give more of an immersion feeling due to devs usually making a whole world out of it. Examples of this are Banjo Kazooie, Overworld is Grundtilda's Lair and level entrances are in different parts. It's weird but Collectathon's generally just feel more epic to me, they just make the game feel alive so to speak. Spyro (Original three) is another good example of doing it right and there are many others.
To restate my question, which do you prefer?
