Naughty Dog is busy creating cinematic emotional rollercoasters these days, but we're a little nostalgic for its platforming poster child. Collecting fruit and gems with Aku Aku in a repeated quest to stop Doctor Cortex made for a trilogy of games that still holds up pretty well to this day.
Crash's advertising campaign was amusingly in line with Sony's trademark snarky attitude toward its competitors, too. As much as it clashed with Crash's in-game timid personality, it served its purpose and drew attention to the franchise. Activision owns the Crash Bandicoot franchise now, however, so it's fairly unlikely we'll see a reboot in the same light as the Playstation trilogy.
