Crash Bandicoot

Created in an attempt to fill in PlayStation's missing mascot character, to compete with Nintendo's Mario and Sega's Sonic, to help sell the PlayStation 1. The Crash Bandicoot game series was original developed by Naughty Dog for Sony Computer Entertainment exclusively, with the first game 'Crash Bandicoot' released for the PlayStation 1 in 1996.

The game series later moved to other game consoles other than Sony owned platforms, such as Game Boy Advance, Xbox 360, and even the N-Gage. On its way it also experimented a lot with different genres, although Crash Bandicoot is well know not be a tight platformer, other the years it became a party game and a kart racer to name a few.
