Crash Twinsanity was one of the most chad franchise games. I'd love to be proven wrong.

Here's a quick rundown:
>pushed Crash Bandicoot platformer games out of the stale teleport-to-pathway-with-boxes-25-times formula to a more open world adventure comedy
>gave Neo Cortex a personality
>gave Neo Cortex a relative even if she was drafted and technically premiered earlier
>in-jokes from previous games
>in-jokes from other franchise
>in-jokes from the production team
>every single aspect of the Moulin Cortex joke
>trailer full of uncomfortable spanking footage
>Cortex just shoots a bunch of fuckers in cutscenes whenever things get dull
>broken as fuck release just makes it more challenging
>not being able to finish production of the game just adds more secret lore, has a whole website about it
>'the entire soundtrack is acapella, from classical orchestra remixes to grungy metal, because why the fuck not

Crash is an underrated (underappreciated?) franchise in general

It went on a 4 game run (Crash 1-2, Warped and Wrath of Cortex) of very enjoyable games. Has several racing games that are fun, and to top it off a fun cast. I'm surprised it doesn't have more attention, though when crash came back a few years ago there was a lot of hype.

It was famous for a reason, and I feel part of that requires background/context to appreciate; you're not going to tell a kid today that Crash Bandicoot is on the cutting edge of graphics, or creating a novel cartoony feel in games. Full disclosure: I haven't played any of the post-Tag-Team Racing games, but it feel like it's right now recycling classic titles (not a bad thing itself) and straying further from the things that made it a standout franchise. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Franchises themselves don't really appeal to me too much as I know how hit-and-miss they can be, and it feels like many are '[x] BUT WITH CHARACTER [Y]!' or infinite sequel milking syndrome when I'm not obsessed with the character enough to care.

Yea I didn't mean to insinuate it wasn't ever famous or anything, just that the lack of attention now is a bit surprising and sad.

Your mention about context is most likely it, new gamers don't know that Crash came during the heyday of platformers/Mascot platformers/cartoonish platformers so a part of it's charm is missing, especially now with the open world and high speed fps craze. It really sucks, mostly because I like platformers a lot and they are now really relegated to more indie titles

I cannot not say if you are right or wrong myself, but i've played the most recent crash racing game (Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled) and it was insanely fun. I have Mario Kart 8 and the couple of games of crash I played blew it out of the water in the entertaining department but nobody plays it from what I see.

Another reason for crash's decline outside of not having a mainline game between 2008-2020 is that the remake trilogy game out to mixed reception. It seems like most people liked it however some mechanical issues such as platforming were messed up, causing people to not like it since it was hard to play as if you could slip off a box and die.

>Franchises themselves don't really appeal to me too much as I know how hit-and-miss they can be, and it feels like many are '[x] BUT WITH CHARACTER [Y]!' or infinite sequel milking syndrome when I'm not obsessed with the character enough to care.


The biggest aspect for me with certain franchises is that outside one specific one, you don't really find that feel in the other games in the same genre. I love Metroid and Castlevania, but these other Metroidvanias people love to bring up when recommending them DO NOT feel as good as Castlevania or super metroid. I'm playing axiom verge and while it's a decent game, it just does not feel as good as metroid. And I hate when people recommend Hollow Knight to those who want to play a game similar to castlevania. It looks nothing like Castlevania, it has a completely different look and style, and a whole bunch of shit that doesn't mesh withPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I was kind of intending this thread to be a storehouse of replies for

<hurrr but who would work without profit motive???? you ever thought about that commie?


where fans have for one reason or another put in a great deal of time and effort to maintain or recreate digital experiences.

For example, I stumbled on some videos for a fan recreation of TIE fighter which, from the clips of it, looks really neat. It seems like video related is a mod based off of another mod for the million year old X-wing Alliance engine. I need to look further into it and see if it's built off of the original game, or its own standalone deal meant to mimic it.

Then there's also Tamriel Reborn that seems like it isn't just a remake of the original, but actually expands on the original Morrowind, I guess to add back in all of the content that had to be cut. Apparently they've been going at it since 2001.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKyrzZRo-O0

Then there's DOOM, which has just had an insane amount of work done on it and with it since it was released. It's actually pretty amazing to see what people are capable of doing with it after so long.

I think Wright just overshot massively. It happens.
As hyped as I was for this game as a kid I now think it was a bit of a dumb idea anyway. Five games in one, of course each one is going to end up underdeveloped. Even in the original plans the connection between each state was too thin to really work. But maybe you could make something interesting with this kind of huge temporal scope but with more focused gameplay.

MGS PW compares Big Boss with Che (and even then Big Boss himself says that he doesn't even deserve to clean the boots of the "most complete human being of the century") shows a lot of support for nicaraguan sandinistas and you literally kill CIA glowies in the game.
