To this day, Banjo Kazooie remains one of the games that has inspired me the most. For me, I think the music is the most inspirational. Grant Kirkhope is a pure genius, and I am super happy he is the man behind the music in the upcoming Yooka-Laylee, the successor of Banjo Kazooie.
Many people may not know, but the team behind the original classic RARE games (GodenEye 007, Donkey Kong, Perfect Dark), has formed a new company called Playtonic Games and is creating a game called Yooka-Laylee. From the footage, it feels a lot like Banjo Kazooie, and in many ways, pays homage to the best platformer games in video game history.
