PSXE Best Of The Best Poll Update: Crash Secures Special Spot

We ran this poll for a reason: to recognize the fantastic PS1 games that didn't quite make the cut in the specific genre awards. We presented you with ten options and gave you two weeks to choose the one that will go up against the heavyweights in the Best Overall PS1 Game poll. And now, your choice is clear-

It's Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, one of the most critically acclaimed and popular platformers of the era, and certainly one of the most colorful and entertaining titles in history. The wily, weird-lookin' hero bounced and spun his way to a victory over the stiff competition of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, Silent Hill, Driver, Syphon Filter and several other worthy competitors. We kinda thought either RE3 or Syphon Filter would compete for the Gold, but we underestimated the nostalgic appeal of Crash. So here are the final results of the PS1 Special poll:

Gold Medal: Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped

Silver Medal: Resident Evil 3: Nemesis

Bronze Medal: Silent Hill

So now, Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped is in the prestigious Finals, which consists of the five Gold medal winners in each of the previous genre awards for the original PlayStation. Take a glance over and you'll see that it's gonna be a battle, as the two favorites must be Final Fantasy VII and Metal Gear Solid. We kinda always knew it would come down to those two, but now it's all up to you: what is the best PlayStation game ever? We'll give you two weeks to figure it out, and then we will move on to the PS2 and establish a whole new set of awards. And don't be afraid to discuss it all over in the official thread in the forums.

I purchased all the PS1 crash games to play them on my PS3, I enjoy them still immensly. I play them every so often. I am trying to finish Quest For Booty, but am stuck at a point I cannot get passed :( Currently enjoying Ferrari Challenge, a good game that, in my opinion, has been overlooked! Does anyone here have Ferrari Challenge? If yes, do let me know so we can race online!

Q!

Crash was an awesome game, but I always felt 2 was better than 3. Oh well, that's just opinion

I have crash 2, and the wrath of cortex (PS2). If I wasn't a fan of Crash then my username wouldn't be Dingodial.

Crash used to be amazing, until naugthy dog stopped producing them. Its imperative that naughty dog takes over crash again.
