Crash and Burn

Remember when Crash Bandicoot was a legitimate contender in the platforming circuit? The original Playstation offered many great titles featuring this furry hero and it seemed like he would live on forever as a staple in the gaming universe. Things took a terrible turn when Naughty Dog sold the rights to the series and now Crash spends his days clawing for any attention he can get.

    1. I loved the first three Crash Bandicoots and I would even say that Crash Team Racing was better than a few Mario Kart titles, but Ratchet and Clank was pretty awesome.

    1. It makes me sad every time I look at PsOne collection. I hope one day Naughty Dog returns to the series and shows it the love it deserves!

  1. I still have my copies of CTR and Crash Bandicoot 2. Once the games hit the PS2 and the appeal of games widened, Crash got turned into a moneymaker for nostalgia’s sake. Anything after 3 I just avoided. Shame, because the music for 2 was catchy.

    1. The second one was always my favorite and it definitely had some funky jams. I still get that music stuck in my head to this day. Once Activision got a hold of the series, they just beat it death.

    1. It was hard to believe that Sony let him go in the first place. I know Naughty Dog wanted to move on to other projects, but you think they would have fought to find another solid developer.
