The lights are on
In the mid-90s, Nintendo had the iconic Mario and Sega had a not-quite-tarnished Sonic the Hedgehog. When Sony broke into the home console market with the original Playstation, they wanted a piece of that platforming mascot action. Enter Crash Bandicoot, an orange, spinning marsupial. He may not have set the world on fire when you look at his long-term history, but the original Naughty Dog titles were a lot of fun back in the day. We wanted to see how the original game held up in 2011, so it's this week's episode of Replay.
