How Naughty Dog Held my Hand in the Crazy World of Gaming

As with many people, my first foray into gaming occurred at a tentative, impressionable young age. Whilst visiting a friend, I distinctly recall the point at which we tired of trying to ride a mattress down the stairs, and instead channelled our attention into a fascinating new device: the Playstation 1. After its discovery, we managed to sink a substantial amount of time into a demo disk, flicking between the games, trying each one, failing, and moving on. Because the mind of a seven year old (or my mind, at any rate) is fickle and slightly unbalanced, none of the games really held our attention for very long. Except one: Crash Bandicoot. (Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter, Naughty Dog, PS2, PS3, PSP, Retro, Uncharted Trilogy)

Naughty Dog is the best, plain and simple.

Crash is crazy fun no matter your age. Anyone could play crash, it had easy levels at first then it got really difficult at the end, too difficult for any child to complete unless they're really dedicated. And Idk if the 1st Jak was aimed @ an older audience, I think that fits the sequels more. Either way I've always been a fan of Naughty Dog but darn it where's my Jake 4? LOL

Crash needs to be dressed like that for his All-Stars Battle Royale reveal...
All pimped out and covered in bling.

Naughty Dog my favorite devs of all time thanks to Crash. I wish Sony would buy Crash and give him back to Naughty Dog. Anyway I can't wait for the Last of US it is currently my most anticipated game.

My Favourites of each Gen :
PS1 - Crash Bandicoot
PS2 - Jak and Daxter / Ratchet and Clank
PS3 - Resistance / Ratchet and Clank / AC2

ND make excellent games for PS3 but i wasn't hooked into it like the games i listed above !

I'm with you 100% on that one. I believe Uncharted was a high quality fantastic game and I'm sure the last of us will also be a very well made game, but those games simply lack the charm of a crash bandicoot or Jak & Daxter IMO. Idk maybe I'm too impartial to games with an art style rather than realism or maybe I just miss getting new games like that on a consistent basis.

In any case there's no denying Naughty Dog is a great dev team for Sony. But next Gen I'd like to see a game from them that is more in the mold of a Crash/Jak.
