I don't get this Crash hate. If it wasn't for him, PS would've been long dead before the DC. He was the main reason why I got into the damn playstation in the first place.
THIS. I'd dare say that the majority of the roster in this game likely wouldn't even exist without Crash Bandicoot paving the way. It makes me sad that people knock him like he's some lame and forgettable mascot like Bubsy (sorry, Bubsy fans) when the guy helped put and keep the Playstation on the map in its early days and even after that for a while.
The 90s kid in me will weep manly tears of joy if he gets announced for this game. I still remember going to K-mart with my dad as a kid and buying the very first Crash Bandicoot game and having a blast with it for a long time. I loved most of the sequels too up until Twinsanity came about.
Think about it. He would be bring NOTHING new to the table.
Spinning? Sweet Tooth, Kratos, Jak, Fat Princess, and Nariko already do that.
Dropping TNT/Nitro crates? Like 75% of the roster drops traps as their down + O.
Riding a polar bear as a super? Parappa and Fat Princess.
A furry? Ratchet, Toro, Parappa, Sly, and Daxter all say hi.
Personality? He has none.
Face it. The only people who want Crash are fanboys stuck in the 90s. Gaming has changed. People only want realistic shooters now. Crash can stay dead like all other dead franchises.
lol i certainly dont want realistic shooters now, I think the market is infested with them and it's time for a change but that's just my opinion.
Most these characters are from the 90's so who cares if they put crash in. Put more shooter characters in and people will go and complain about range attacks from even more characters like they are now.
