I guess It's cos his best days are behind him. A damn shame considering the comparative crap that is mario continues to float around like a turd someone forgot to flush.

mario didnt get bought out by activision and milked till it went sour (but its still sour)

Mario>>>>>>& gt;>>>>>Crash... Bandicoot!

Should have stayed on the PS3 and maybe 360 as a platformer like the PS2 days.

^ Think naughty dog wanted to start working on something else....Jak & Daxter.

Quagmire2640d ago

It would be a dream come true if both Insomniac and Naughty Dog could make at least one Crash and one Spyro game to bring back their former glory in one big final Blast for PS3, as a tribute for the games which made ND and Ins. what they are today.

if didn't forget Crash's birthday then why are they just telling us now? If I would have known I would have spent that day playing Crash 1,2,3 and CTR.

This just isn't fair. How would you feel if your favorite series as a child got sold and passed around by crappy developers like a hot potato?

GilIsMunny2640d ago

We did forget. Someone reminded us.

mario keeps producing quality games . And even at its best crash wouldnt kill mario .

The only turd here would be immature guys , and the last few crash games .

ZombieNinjaPanda2640d ago

Mario also has a lot of crappy games. Both had some quality games.

Baka-akaB2640d ago (Edited 2640d ago )

care to name those mythical crappy mario games ? I can only think of the only non-nintendo consoles one on cdi and the one by hudson soft , wich hardly count .

Mario even rocked in its spin offs , with the sports , , puzzle , rpg and racing worlds ... Crash is far from achieving that , even with an excellent Crash team racing (only the first one , the rest is crap)

UnbiasedTroll2640d ago

You must be joking? Super Mario is the king of platforming and will always be.

Infact Super Mario Galaxy the highest rated exclusive this generation.....

Yes Crash was very cool in PS1 days and was apart of my gaming history. But on the other hand did it even touch the genre changing and industry innovating Mario 64?

No. Crash has been dead for a long time now. Frankly no one cares no more. His best games were Crash 1 2 3.

If you talking about the spin off games like mario at olympics yes i agree they are just plain crap and milking the legendary mascot. But hey kids love him and he makes money.

ULTIMATE_REVENGE2640d ago (Edited 2640d ago )

Crash 1, 2, 3 were all great games because they were all developed by ND the creators of Crash. If they were still making it today it would have most likely destroyed Mario without breaking a sweat.

the only great Mario games this gen are Mario Galaxy 1&2 and that's it. Nintendo go on making Mario because they still own it so please use that pea size brain of yours for once. If Mario went down the same path Crash has been it probably wouldn't even be here today never mind a commercial success.

The only good Crash game after 3 was Wrath of Cortex which although developed by another company stuck to it's roots which is what made it a good game.

Mario imo will never touch the first three Crash games including Crash: WoC

Mario? Crap? Have you played Galaxy 2?

I wish ND still owned crash bandicoot, he was my favorite mascot and game in the ps1 era. Now activision has gone and killed such a great character and franchise. Anyway happy birthday crash!

TheLastGuardian2640d ago

From the article: “He’s just a figure of the past that didn’t age well.”

Out of all the PS1 games Crash games definitely aged the best. I still play them every now and then. I have them on disc and on PSN. CTR Crash Team Racing is also a great Crash game developed by Naughty Dog and it’s on the PS store.

It’s really quite depressing what happened to Crash. He was one of my childhood heroes and now all his newer games suck and don’t have the original series in mind.

If I was Naughty Dog I would’ve bought the rights back a long time ago so people can stop making a mockery of their character. It’s not like they can’t afford him. I really want Naughty Dog to make another Crash game but I think their done with him for good.

Gamers today would much rather have more Uncharted. I do too but I’d rather see at least one more good crash game. If some dev team with Crash nostalgia would make a reboot with the originals in mind that would be great. Kinda like Sonic 4 but actually on par with the originals.

Happy Birthday Crash

You were my very first PS1 game but you lived out your good years during that era of gaming. ah.. memories..

Cajun Chicken2640d ago

Activision are sitting on a goldmine reboot here. Crash can be reverted faster than Sonic ever could and it's only now Sega ever got Sonic right.

Gotta love the Bandicoot when he's done right. AKA, not by Radical or cursed to endless diabolical kart games that don't compare to CTR.

GoldPS32640d ago

I like to know why Sony didn't keep Crash and Spyro. They both had great sales on PS1. Giving up them two games was one of Sony's dumbest moves ever.

SpartanPrince2640d ago

They never owned them. Crash and Spyro were owned by Universal which is why Sony is so adamant about owning IP's nowadays. They used to be like how Microsoft is now with Gears of War with buying exclusivity from third parties. Now they buy the IP like with Heavy Rain

crash has been forgotten ever since activision took control.
