Crash Bandicoot Coming Back Is The Best News Of 2016

If eSports ever want to be taken seriously, then they better start up a Crash Bandicoot league by the time I’m done writing this blog.

I’ve wasted so much time in my life so far. Hours and hours that eventually add up to years being completely wasted doing god knows what. Hell, I could be wasting my time right now. But never once would I consider the countless hours I spent as a kid playing “Crash Bandicoot” as wasted time. Those were invaluable hours of my life that I wouldn’t trade for the world. It’s one of the most perfect video games ever created. And the sounds really were the best part of the game. The spin. The “ooda bugah” or whatever the hell that mask says that scientists could spend years trying to decipher but never come up with a conclusive result. Jumping up and down on the bouncy boxes. Even the sound Crash made whenever you would die was great. Sometimes I would die on purpose just to hear it. Everything about it–besides the levels that you had to run the opposite way–was perfect. So sure, there have been plenty of reasons to think that 2016 was one of the worst years on record. But Crash Bandicoot coming back into our lives makes everything worth it.

And by the way, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back was the best out of the series and if you disagree, then you’re just wrong. Sorry but not really.
