This poll is only about the platforming games in the Crash series and focuses on the home console entries, so the handheld games are lumped together as "Other". The remake N.Sane Trilogy is excluded, just like Super Mario All-Stars would be excluded in a 2D Mario poll.

Bonus question: What's your favorite Crash Bandicoot spinoff? It's doubtful that there will be a dedicated poll for this question, so this is your chance to honor your favorite in this category.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Crash 3 > Crash 2 > Crash 4 > Crash 1 and all the other games don't count

Please Watch/Share this video so it gets shown in Hollywood.

Crash warped took everything that made the first two games good, put it in one game, and it came out great. I can always pick up 3 and play it, no fear of it getting old.

As far as spin offs go, I know there isn’t much love for it, but I always thoroughly enjoyed crash bash.

There are only three imo, and that's the original trilogy. I've beaten the first countless times and just beat the second. I haven't started the third yet. But out of the first two, I enjoyed the first one more. It's more timeless. Never seems to get old. The second one (and I can only assume the third will fall into this as well) was great, but it felt like they were trying to do a little too much... which is rare, because I typically find sequels to great games to be the best ones.

We'll see how I feel about the third game. But it's going to be hard for it to overtake the first for me.

Crash 3 for sure.
Really liked the variety and it wasn't as hard as the previous two. I could never finish the first two as a kid but I did manage to beat the third.

Crash 1 is next. A little unforgiving but it paved the way.

Crash 2 just has some unfair and unbalanced levels. Those polar bear sections are awful.

Crash 4 is dead last. Mediocre platformer.

Never played any of the others (except CTR).

Warped is surely the one I've played the most, but Cortex Strikes Back have a sweet spot and difficulty, controls, and clever design.

Warped and then Cortex Strikes Back

I enjoyed 1 and 4..not huge on the ones in between 3 and 4 though

I played up until Wrath of Cortex. That game is underrated, and it's the actual 'Crash 4' if you ask me. I don't get why they'd retcon or just ignore all those other games, at least Wrath of Cortex, when they named Crash 4 Crash 4, but whatever. Still though, while underrated and fun enough it's not the best one, the least of the first four even;

Crash 3 > Crash 2 > Crash 1 > WoC.

So they got better with each game, which is pretty rare for any series. Crash is definitely the best of Naughty Dog's series.

To me Crash 2 was my First PS1 game loved it, My favorite was Crash warped so I'll pick that one, I fell in love speedrunning Crash 2 n tranced for GBA watch this speedrun.

Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life. The reason I'm chaotic to few 3rd party developers is because I'm protecting Sega and also I lack skill to get really hot girl I really want. also few devs deserve it for making bad game's personal experiences, looking at Ghost Blade HD the shmup or Fighting EX Layer. My standards are too high for genres I play. KOF 13 > Fighting EX layer gameplay.

Crash 4 plays the best but Crash 2 is my favorite.

As for spin off. Crash Team Racing is my favorite.
