Crash

It’s the mid 1990s. You’re one of the chosen few, a lucky little bastard whose parents decided to you you a PlayStation home video game console. At the time, the launch line-up for that console was the stuff of dreams: Resident Evil, RayMan and Ridge Racer to name a few. But a few months later, the PlayStation would get its killer game: Crash Bandicoot.

It was stupidly fun stuff, leveraging the best of that console’s capabilities to create something magical. The Crash Bandicoot love would roll on for a few more years, eventually crashing (teehee) and burning as the character was left to rot on a pile. But you never forget the first time you clobbered some crates and collected ALL of the power-ups, a feeling that a brand new generation will get to feel soon.

Although I might just dig out the PlayStation that Matty’s mom threw out and give the original a whirl again. Now where’d I put those weird audio-visual cables?

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
