How Crash Bandicoot Hacked The Original Playstation

It's a cool half an hour documentary on game development and computer programming.

Quote:
Ars Technica sat down with Naughty Dog Co-founder Andy Gavin to talk about the hurdles in bringing the original Crash Bandicoot to gamers around the world. When Andy and his partner Jason Rubin made the decision to bring the action platforming genre into three dimensions, it required living up to their company ethos of “leaving no stone unturned” in the search for memory - even if it meant hacking Sony’s library code.


I loved the Crash Bandicoot games. And I played like, 3 or 4 of them, including a racing game, on my blueberry G3 iMac using Connectix Virtual Gamestation, I never had a PS1.

I was probably too busy playing Escape Velocity or StarCraft, but my brother was a big fan.
I played nitro on the Gamecube but that's it. I'm playing the Spyro trilogy then maybe I'll pick up the crash games when I'm done
If you want video game documentary you should check out the one that just came out about the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series. The game that saved skateboarding in the 90s and made it what it is today with the X-Games and all.

Man, I loved those games. Soundtrack by DEVO (musik mutato, who does half the soundtracks on kids and late-nite TV. Les Claypool does the other half).
