People Are Freaking Out Over How Hard "Crash Bandicoot" Is Now

...Or are we just getting old?

Posted on

When Sony announced last year that they were remastering and re-releasing Crash Bandicoot, people were really excited.

How I feel after hearing about the Crash Bandicoot remaster! #CrashBandicoot #E3

So when it finally came out last week, people were glued to their screens.

Me as a kid: "I wonder what adulthood will be like" Me as an adult: "I'm taking 3 days off work to play Crash Bandicoot" #CrashBandicoot

I literally haven't moved since I tweeted this. My butt and the sofa have combined into one object.

It was just like old times.

Me and my brother playing crash bandicoot in 1996 for the first time and 2017 😜😂 @Naughty_Dog @CrashBandicoot… https://t.co/4H0w8MkaWP

Except... is it harder than it used to be?

Playing/streaming Crash Bandicoot. Forgot how hard this is. Have already died many times. Halp. #CrashBandicootNSaneTrilogy

Because it's really fucking hard.

Crash Bandicoot is officially the hardest game I've ever played....

The kind of hard that makes you mad.

@JackSWS @CrashBandicoot I spent an hour and half on one level yelling fuck the whole time lol probably like 10 gam… https://t.co/93EbaOmPNz

NO I DON'T NEED AN EXTRA MASK TO HELP ME BECAUSE I KEEP FALLING TO MY DEATH NOT GETTING TOUCHED BY TURTLES FUCK SAKE I HATE CRASH BANDICOOT

Yeah nah this crash bandicoot game is too hard it's not good for my health

Like, REALLY mad.

Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy should’ve came with a free controller cause I just broke mine.

i got the crash bandicoot remaster and forgot that 85% of crash bandicoot makes you want to snap your controller in half

Most of your time is spent staring at this guy's face.

I feel I see this screen more than levels themselves #CrashBandicoot #darksouls

Ok… Crash Bandicoot… First one… Native Fortress level… Anyone else run outta 200+ lives & see the "Game Over" screen like 50 times?

IS THIS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET OLD?!

If there's anything I've learned from the N. Sane Trilogy it's that Crash Bandicoot is WAY harder than I remember. 90s games, u da real MVP.

Native Fotress in Crash Bandicoot was hard when I was 7. I am now 20 and I think it's harder.

Excuse me while I have a Crash Bandicoot-triggered existential crisis.

PLEASE put that on my tombstone #CrashBandicoot #PS4share

But hey, at least we're still having fun.

Crash Bandicoot was so much fun. Definitely a trip down memory lane. Should have had a death count going lmao. Jumping is hard

...right?!

All of us a week ago: can't wait for Crash Bandicoot! Best game ever! All of us now: this piece of shit is the worst fuckin game ever made

UPDATE: The game IS harder. Check out this side by side, which shows the difference in Crash's new jump, which impacts his landing.

the reason jumps feel harder in the n.sane trilogy isn't really due to falling a bit faster but because collisions… https://t.co/YrPaXXrz0h
