Re: Why is Crash so important?

1. The crash series has sold more units then any series represented in this game. Close to 10,000,000 more units then the current leader (Tekken) Nearly 20,000,000 more then 2nd place (Metal Gear) & Doubles 3rd place (Ratchet & Clank) It therefore has a bigger fanbase then any game with a rep currently in the roster and therefore his inclusion would please more people then any character in the roster.

 

2. Crash is really sony's only mascot. It's all very well saying for example that sackboy is the PS3 mascot but no one really associates the PS3 with sackboy in the same way they associated the PS1 with Crash. He is Sony's most successful mascot and for lack of a better way of putting it, he's the closest thing we have to a mario like figure. Ergo he is possibly THE most important character in sony's history and therefore deserves a place in a game celebrating Playstation more then any other characters.

 

Him being deserving or not shouldn't even be an issue. Crash should have made it in even if it ended up costing sony half of their profits from All stars.

I do think people look back on them with rose tinted glasses. Sure they were good games, but they weren't the absolute epitamy of gaming excellence and quality like most people are making them out to be. I think because most people played them as a child they loved it so much more because it was so much more of a surprise to them to play a game like that, and that love stuck with them their whole life. If they had played those games when they were older, they probably wouldn't have loved them so much.

I've been watching YouTube videos of the old crash games... Still looks crazy fun to me!

Why do we have a  Bioshock rep.

 Bioshock is more associated to the Xbox

I personally think he is a dumb character. He has no depth to him and is just lame IMO.

Whatever though, I'm asking for Kat who's only had one game so I can't argue against him.

I can say that Kat is first party and should be 1000x easier to get in game. I'll keep saying that.

Parappa is soooo deep instead... Fat Princess too
