Total:25

Of the original 3 games (Crash Bandicoot, Cortex Strikes Back, Warped) that debuted on PS1 and came to PS4 last year and Switch/Xbone/PC just recently, which do you think is the best, and why?



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Used to think 3.
Last year, playing them on a friend's PS4, 1.
Now, playing on Switch, probably 2.

I guess when I finish them all I'll have a solid opinion, but, it's probably looking like 2.



Crash 3.

Both 2 and 3 benefit from the remake I'd say, but the visual and graphics department are just all out in 3, thanks to the varied locations and level designs.

Still need to play 2 and 3 on the Switch version, but I doubt my opinions will change that much.



Crash Bandicoot Warped is my favorite.

To be honest, I love all three games, but Warped has something special for me.



Crash Bandicoot 3. Best levels and the special abilities after defeating the bosses make the gameplay even more amazing.

Still haven't tried them.

2 is my favourite. 3 suffers from way to many poorly implemented gimmick stages. Half of the levels are gimmick stages. When it focused on pure platforming it has some of the best levels in the series.



So far, Warped is still my favorite to play. It just has so much variety and movement options to me. I used to like Crash 1 more than 2 but I'm slowly warming up to 2 now that I'm playing it properly (Never played it past the second warp room). Basically, so far I'll rate them as 3>2>1.



I think I like the first one the most after fixing the save system. Saving was horrible in the original game but just fine in N. Sane Trilogy. After that, I think I like the third game the most. The second one is good as well, but something feels a bit off to me.

In which order did you originally play them in? Because my introduction to the series was with the third game (Technically it was the first one, but I was really young at the time), and when I came back to play the second one it kinda felt... weird? I don't know if it's the smaller warp room or maybe the various ice levels it has, but it definitely felt off to me for a long time. It almost felt like I was playing an earlier version of Crash 3 or something. I've really been warming up to it recently though.
