Saw an old Crash Bandicoot commercial on YouTube where Crash drives to Nintendo HQ and taunts Mario through a bullhorn, telling him his days are numbered.

Funny how that turned out, huh? Crash fell off a cliff after CTR, and Mario’s still going strong.

Crash was never that great. Same with Spyro. I enjoyed them enough as a kid but they don't hold up well like Mario and Sonic did from that time.

Spyro definitely holds up better than Crash. I've been hearing really good things about the Spyro 1-3 collection that's out right now.

Crash, honestly, was never good

Caught part of the 2nd half. It’s all right. The quarterbacking is pretty rough.

^ Good job on your record. Are you going to try to improve on it?

I remember enjoying Spyro's exploration but running felt sloppy and out of control. Definitely above Crash but they're both barely above Bubsy tier. I wouldn't even consider them to be equal to Klonoa or Earthworm Jim, but they're probably more well known. Then again, Earthworm Jim 64 was pretty bad...

I kinda miss 90's mascot games. What is there now, Knack and Sackboy? They're pretty boringly designed.

Dang, my crap connection means I can't participate. Vita works fine but I guess Switch requires a better one.

Nice work on Maniac Mansion, DZ! That game is apparently pretty incomprehensible to someone who’s never played it before.

Those old adventure games are neat, I wish I had the patience for them.

thanks but it may not be valid since i just found out that i didnt start the timer at the right time (which in my defense, they have no defined rules listed on the site and i only found this out by digging through a forum thread from a different version of the game)

timer is supposed to start when the verb menu appears, but i started at power on because i figured skipping the intro + selecting characters counted as meaningful inputs

It's valid in your heart. Congrats on the time either way.

To make a long story short, my 70+ hour save file for Kingdom Hearts 3 got corrupted. Just needed a few grindy, end-game trophies for the platinum. I have a backup cloud save from yesterday, but losing the progress I made today has completely taken the wind out of my sails.
