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?
