My first (2d) games were:
Attack of the Mutant Camels
Lode Runner

I'm sure you all know what system they were on! Someone has mentioned it once.

One of my favourite platform games was Superfrog (on the Amiga).

Jumpman was also lots of fun.

Super Metriod (SNES). Tops in my book. Very well done for a platformer.
Super Mario World (SNES). The best of the classic 2D Mario series, I think.

I'd even have to throw in...

Blaster Master (NES). - Damn tough game. "...Since Blaster Master on NES does not feature a battery or password save system, the entire game must be completed in a single play-through...." -AllGame Synopsis by Scott Alan Marriott

Default 14 times minimum

I must have played these games 14 times each.
Rocket Knight Adventures on Megadrive and
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night on PS1.

Awesome soundtracks, tons of bosses.

They are still awesome.

Super Metroid on SNES or Sonic 1 on MegaDrive for me

Tho there was a game called 'Fury of the Furries' on the Amiga that I used to play a LOT - it was more puzzle than platform though...

Flashback / Another World. There is an iOS and Android version of AW out there as well apparently.

A close second would be the great ape himself, Donkey Kong.
