Don't be surprised if you see America's Favorite Marsupial (after Kangaroo Jack) tooling around on the highways and byways of this great land. That's right: Crash Bandicoot is old enough to get his learner's permit.
Oh Crash how my heart yearns for thee....ND please, please return to the platform genre and give Sony a true mascot. All we have now is LBP and R&C, these are great franchises, yet IMO they don't compare to Crash. This gen has seen a decrease in platform games one of the best genres in the good PS1 days and personally my favourite. I am close to 30 years and have a good over 20 years of gaming experience under my belt. As time goes by it seems gaming as a whole has become an entirely different creature, not the lovable peaceful friend we once knew, intimately reminiscing about the joys of our imagination. Instead has been transformed into the bullish, competitive asshole which has hit too close to home. Oh how I miss the good old days...Thank you Crash, u truly were the magnum opus of what gaming should have been, playful, imaginative and downright fun...
that was beautiful dude
Couldn't have said it any better
<Clicks Agree over and over again...oh it only works once> I wish ND would buy Spyro aswell They should open a sister studio so they can start on Jak, Crash, Spyro or New IP while ND finish off Uncharted then the sister studio would move up the game they've started to ND to finish off as they work on an Uncharted game..........you get the point I know their one franchise per console but it wouldn't hurt.
There are tons of platformers on XBLA, PSN and Wii. You just have to keep your eye's peeled.
Indeed, the Wii seems to have alot of them, oddly.
Like.. I must have pushed "Agree" a hundred times...
Dear old Crash and friends...my favourite platformer series. However, the best of Crash is from the ND days, and now the Crash Bandicoot series is whithering, thanks to Activision and the other developers.
I had a dream I was playing this too... Crash will always have a spot in video game history, but Naughty Dog knows when to stop. That whole concept of character design ran dry, and you see what happened to Sonic when SEGA kept on with his series.
Ctash 1 was up there with Mario
Man, I bought all of those games back in the day. Those were some good times. Its sad to see the Sony mascots fall. ;_; Crash, Spyro, and Lara Croft. Luckily, Lara rebounded as of late, and the Twisted Metal Series is still running strong, but Crash and Spyro... Crash Team Racing was the shit too.
I have a bad feeling that Ratchet & Clank just might be next. Notice the marginal fanfare for All 4 One?
Its sad to see how there are millions of comments on R3 articles, yet hardly anything for Ratchet. I'm afraid after All 4 One, Ratchet's gone, and no one seems to realise that this is probably his last farewell. Insomniac have Overstrike to makem then possibly another new franchise for NexGen consoles.
I was surprised that the PS3 didn't get a copy of the last Crash Bandicoot game. Originally, I wanted to get the PS3 because of my familiarity with some of the franchises (and one-offs) I hoped Sony would still have from then. Crash Bandicoot, Tomb Raider, PaRappa The Rapper, Grand Theft Auto, etcetera. It's unfortunate that Naughty Dog sold off the IP due to running out of ideas to keep it viable.
I loved Crash the second i layed eyes on him on my screen. He gave me joy when i played his videogames. He gave me one of the greatest videogame experience of my life
also my first PS2 game but the PS2 versions wernt nearly as good as the older ones!
