I liked Wheel of Time. Took me a bit to get into it but, for all it's flaws, I enjoyed the characters enough to wanna know how it ended. Got into it about a year before the final book dropped, so points for timing.

If you want to know what's wrong with Crash bandicoot as a series, you need only find the first bottomless pit you approach at an angle and sidle up to it as slowly as possible. You'll find that the camera jerks sharply to the left or right when you go from the trail to over the pit itself, causing you to miss the landing and fall to your death unless you've trained your reflexes to compensate. Not only is this straight up unfair to the player, but it's well hidden enough that you stand a good chance of never noticing in the first place. I figured it out after running a free level a few times in a Gamestop when I realized I wasn't landing where I was supposed to, but it's so subtle I doubt many players ever realized what was happening.

It's really fucking insane to me that they decided to call this game "It's about time" As a subtitle that kind of implies it might be about time travel or something. Except THAT WAS LITERALLY THE GIMICK OF THE LAST CRASH GAME!! The level hub in Warped was literally a time machine.

This game has what I like to call "Mega Man 9 Syndrome:" when a game is so focused on appealing to nostalgia that all innovation and gameplay improvements after at least the third installment gets thrown away. For its cinematic equivalent, see Force Awakens Syndrome.

Sonic made it big as a 2D platformer, focused on his ridiculous speed and his spin moves. The things that made him great just never felt the same in 3D. Crash was always built for 3D. Everything that was good about him, still works in a modern 3D game. You just can't say that for Sonic. And that's a shame. I grew up on Sonic 2, and never stopped loving it.

The "Wheel of Time" reference nearly gave me whiplash from snapping to look at the screen so fast. As serious fiction goes it is my favorite series, with so much lore and history through the books it does Papa Tolkien proud. It isn't as in your face gratuitous as George Martins works, but if you like more of a slow boil with hugely epic crescendos it is hard to beat.

There's only ever 3 reasons why this Hack complains about a game. He personally doesn't like it because it isn't Indy enough/it's too triple A, there's actual reasons to dislike the game (I think I can count these on one hand), or as exampled here, he sucks at the game and insists he isn't the one at fault for.. barely being able to beat a simple platformer.

"Crash bandicoot as a franchise is still doing better than Sonic the Hedgehog" He says. Comparing a series that literally died and needed remake hype to come back (only to be largely considered DOA again) to a series that has never died, sometimes is absolute SHITE and sometimes is pretty damn good ('06 SHITE vs. Colours GOOD - or Generations GOOD vs. Forces VERY SHIT). My point is that Sonic isn't in danger of dying for good any time soon. Having said that. Sonic might have stolen from DBZ or DBZ might have stolen from every other source that says "Gold is more powerful". You can find loads of fiction where a transformation or powerup adds a gold colour, aura, armour or something. Sadly, Sonic wasn't going to get Gold Shoes. Having said that. Super Saiyan was made up in 1991 (which is close enough to be really suspect). But Super Sonic was made by Sega America... who very likely didn't have access to the manga in question. Readers of the manga could be forgiven for thinking that Super Saiyan was white hair if reading scans. Sega had to create Super Sonic rather early on, much earlier than they'd likely have ever read the manga. So it literally is a rather shitty coincidence. Though perhaps it's why Sonic 3's hyper sonic looks so different... even though it didn't stick. Having said all of that. Giving Sonic gold quills or a scarf is forgivable next to redesigning a character to resemble a black woman in furry suit that fell into neon paint.

It could be that Sonic was a good 2D series that failed to make the jump to 3D whereas Crash started with 3D so it didn't have to reinvent itself. Also Crash doesn't talk. That probably helps.

As a furry I'm glad there are so many bizarrely sexualised anthropomorphic animals from the 90s I can use as a scapegoat for my rampant perversion and mental deviancy. Call me cynical, but I don't think they overcompensated for anything with nu-Tawna- It's exactly the same thing, just that today's audience likes a badass action chick to fap over instead.
