Shut it!!

I do want Crash Bandicoot

TLG19912941d ago

You will get told what you want and don't want and you will accept it... OKAY!

bouzebbal2941d ago

I would be more tempted by a Sly game.
I do not imagine how Crash would be on PS4, PS1 version was kind of lacking freedom to move around etc... Of course i would love a great Crash game and i will buy it day one if it is just like i did with Jak Ratchet Sly Mario

article "Crash Bandicoot wasn't that good anyway" ---> Trash click f..ing bait ....boycott the thing down and dont click it ...worthless opinions by some who probably played games only on N64 and X360 ...

they already tell you what games you can and can't play... why can't they tell you what you need?

The state of video game journalism is getting really sad. Nothing but stupid articles to get cheap hits.

CoNn3r_B2941d ago

Told me this a year ago and I would have agreed with you but with the success of Ratchet and Clank I feel there is a place for Crash Bandicoot on the PS4, maybe a reimagining similar to R&C.

Fin_The_Human2941d ago (Edited 2941d ago )

You really can't compare R&C to Crash.

R&Cs art style was very Pixar like from the start and the holders games have aged well in terms of graphics and gameplay.

Crash on the other hand has not aged well and the new developers would have to completely redo the game and the character design.

The game will probably turn out like Knack in terns of gameplay which was not bad but not great as well.

I say let Sony release it and see what happens, if its great then that's awesome and if its mediocre then that OK too cause the franchise was pretty much left for dead and atleast it got a chance.

ninsigma2941d ago (Edited 2941d ago )

I think it is very possible for a decent crash game to be made on new gen. I had the same doubts before but after seeing this fan made crash in unreal 4 http://m.youtube.com/watch%... I believe it's very possible to bring him back.

@Fin_The_Human

Youre comparing a game that came out on a PS1 in 1996 vs a game that came out on the PS2 in 2002 . Then go on to say one has aged better......SMH. Naughty Dog at the time was creating impressive tech back in the day with texture mapping and such. What it achieved on the PS1 was nothing short of amazing.

"Crash on the other hand has not aged well"
Bruh the last installment was on the ps1 lol

UltraNova2941d ago

Definitely this! They should definitely do a full remake of the OG Crash or remaster the original ND trilogy and release it on one disc!

That said, I don't know if this will ever be possible considering Sony confirmed that the rights belong to Activision.

I believe Sony listens to us and wants to make this happen, but trust me when I tell you we should all stop asking for Crash. Why? Because as long as we show such massive interest Activision will ask for even more from Sony for buying the rights back. I'm 100% sure that its Activision who is to blame here, because if this IP is worth e.g. 50mill they surely ask for 250million and no one in their right mind would eve accept that no matter what the fans say.

So lets stop fueling Activision's insatiable greediness.

TheUndertaker852941d ago

If they choose to do a remaster it'll be a tad ridiculous imo. We've already seen enough of that with PS2 and PS3 games. If they start doing PSOne remasters take that as a sign of zero backward compatibility in the future.

I already dislike having to buy PS2 games again to play them, albeit slightly upgraded. There's really zero reason the PS4 shouldn't be able to have PS2 backward compatibility. If they start doing the same with PSOne games I'll be highly disappointed. There's even less reason that shouldn't be doable.

No, not pushing the importance of backward compatibility either but giving the option then charging for things again is very BS.

Adults who are not blinded by nostalgia have no interest in Crash. Revive him if you want, but he died for a reason and Naughty Dog wants nothing to do with him because they're catering to adults and not kids.

Man_Among_Mice2941d ago

Speak for yourself. You give me a Crash Bandicoot on par with earlier entries in the series and I will happily play it to my hearts content. A good game is a good game, period, whether it's for kids or adults.

KentBenMei2941d ago

Not true. Children's games are for children, period. I don't care how good a Sponge Bob Square Pants or Power Rangers game plays, I won't enjoy t because the subject matter is simply not interesting. Some games like Mario and Sonic can manage to appeal to everyone of all ages (less so these days, though, with Sonic Boom and Cat Mario trash littering the gamespace, but I digress) but Crash and Spyro just don't, IMO.

By all means, enjoy what you like. I just can't find value in Crash. He's a good memory and a symbol of the great era he lived in, but nothing more.

Man_Among_Mice2941d ago

@KentBenMei

Actually what I said is true. A good game is a good game no matter who it's targeted for. Just because you don't enjoy doesn't make it bad. It's just not your cup of tea. Some hold appeal to all and some don't. Nothing wrong with it just the way the world works.

ninsigma2941d ago

I liked crash but he was never a wow factor for me but I'm not blinded to the fact that a revival of crash would be huge.

KentBenMei2941d ago

It would be interesting, I just wouldn't get my hopes up. I like seeing revivals sometimes. Bubsy and Gex need one just because I allow my nostalgia to say so, haha.

SavingPvt_Highon2941d ago

If you've played a crash game then you know they get insanely hard as you progress. Graphical style and feel, yes, it catered to kids, but difficulty, it was definitely for adults.

KentBenMei2941d ago (Edited 2941d ago )

Difficulty was high in all games back in my day, kids games or not. Difficulty doesn't dictate what audience a gam panders to. Only more recently have kid games been easy.

garrettbobbyferguson2941d ago (Edited 2941d ago )

"Catering to adults"

You mean children that think they're too mature for anything that isn't filled with murdering millions of people? People want Crash. I also see an interest in a revival of platformers and games that aren't just about murdering with guns. If that's all you enjoy, then please enjoy it.

KentBenMei2940d ago

Nice hyperbole. Genocide isn't necessary for adult games, but it's a lot better than goofy cartoon characters hopping around. No thanks, if you enjoy pretending you're 5 again then go for it. I'll be enjoying the likes of Quantic Dreams, TellTale, and such while you enjoy Barney's Great Adventure just because the gameplay is solid.

And I have nothing against Platformers. Mighty No. 9 is one of my most anticipated games. It is a bit more universal in appeal than dumb animal characters, thanks; I outgrew Mickey Mouse when I outgrew diapers.

notachance2941d ago

?

you get to define what adults are supposed to do now? and I bet you speak on behalf of all adults when you say they aren't interested in Crash I guess? you a god or something?

Or let me guess

Enjoy your ADULT games .
let us minors enjoy our games too could you please XDDDDD.
if thats the way you communicate and deliver your opinion to other people i doubt you have grown much, if at all .
but then again who am i to judge people .
i respect Uncharted fans and i give the game its credit even though i dont play that type of games .
Crash or Sonic or Sly cooper or ratchet these are the games that inspires the gamer inside me if these games seize to exist then i will not be a gamer any more thats why variety is required and very essential if you want a successful business and want to get as much mass appeal as possible so kudos to all different types of video games the ones that i play ( platformers, JRPGs and some other creative games like the last guardian ) and the ones th
