Not really, side scrollers are shit on PC due to the fact you need to buy a very well made keyboard to take full advantage of inputs. Although I guess you can argue that's a user end issue, not of the genre's efficacy on PC platforms. But honestly, where should a game stop being accessible hardware end, in order to be a well tailored enthusiast experience?
Should all "hardcore" PC platformers require users to buy obscure/expensive mechanical keyboards that allow for multiple movement inputs? Honestly I think not.
