The debate about if Ratchet & Clank or Jak and Daxter is the greater platformer has been rekindled. Let us don flame-retardant garments.

A science fiction video game series, normally developed for Sony consoles, about an anthropomorphic animal known as a Lombax and a robot named Clank. (I suggest you all play the game's, they're great.)
The series was started by a company called 'Insomniac' but in 2007 a game called Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters was developed for the Playstation Portable (PSP) by a company called High Impact Games.
Ratchet and Clank is a third person action adventure shooting platformer.

The story of a Lombax from planet Veldin who runs into a badly drawn robot that he encountered in a crashed spacecraft. From then on Ratchet (The lombax) starts to hate that robot, but still follows adventure along side of him. On that adventure the Blarg master, Drek plans to make a new planet for the Blarg. Dreks right-hand man Captain Qwark (One of the heroes in the third adventure) tries time and again to eliminate Ratchet and Clank. After Drek is stopped, the second adventure comes. During this one, Captain Qwarks previous humiliation at the feel of Ratchet and Clank drives him into a downfall. He tries to sell fake merchandise, and is arrested for it. After that, Qwark must pay 6 billion bolts (bolts are the money, and 6 billion is a lot coincidering on my Ratchet and Clank 3 file, I have 30 million bolts and ive beeten the game 6 times and have recorded 80 hours of gameplay because I spent 10 hours getting secrets)(There are alot of them, 30 skill points, Hidden bolts, trophies.) Qwark is arrested because of trying to flee to another planet. Ratchet and Clank eventually learn that Qwark flushes himself to freedom out of his prison cell. After that he unleashes a flaw from the "Protopets" (Megacorps (the weapon and gadget company in Ratchet and Clank 3) which are attempted-to-be-perfect pets made by Megacorp. Ratchet encounters another lombax on his journey. She masquerades as who is thought to be the bad guy for the first half of the game. He must save her about 3/4 into the game from a huge robot called "Giganto-Mech". Near the end, Ratchet has to infiltrate the Megacorp HQ and defeat the giant mutated protopet (Final boss). After that is done, Qwark takes all the credit and pisses Ratchet off. After that adventure, Qwarks old nemesis Dr.Nefarious returns to eliminate Qwark. As the game is progressed to a certain point, Nefarious learns that Ratchet's after him. After that is learned, Nefarious makes a "bio-bliterater". That turns anyone into a robot on the planet. At the final destination in that game Ratchet and Clank defeat Nefarious ant the transformed Bio-bliterater (it transformed into a fat humanshape robot that shoots misiles). After that The game ends, the credits roll and glory is the players. The bad news for all gamecube or Xbox players is that the trilogy was only released on the PS2; Ratchet and clank 1 in 2002, Ratchet and Clank 2 in 2003 and Ratchet and clank 3 in November 2004.
Ratchet and Clank is an amazing series with descent plots.

A kickass video game that focuses on the adventures of a ferret with a number of high powered weaponry and his talking trashcan. Only on the PS2.
Ratchet and Clank totally kicks ass.

The sequal to the best platform game ever made- Ratchet and Clank.
Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando is a lot harder then the first one.
