I now expect to hear Bette Midler belting out “Did you ever know that you’re my hero?”
Personally, I think that some version of Crash Bandicoot should be hidden in every game that Naughty Dog creates. Maybe he’s a stuffed animal in one, a t-shirt, poster, television commercial, or maybe part of the map like Max’s head was in Star Wars: Dark Forces.
Nonetheless, a Crash Bandicoot in every game. Naughty Dog, make it so.
