Also, wasn't CTR on PS1 60fps?
it's still enjoyable, it has aged pretty well, which is why i hope whoever is handling the remake can nail the gameplay and make it exactly like it was in the ps1 game, and not try something "new".
I don't care if it can still be successful as a PS4 exclusive, there is no good reason why this shouldn't come out on multiple platforms. I want as many people as possible to play this game.
Very important that they retain the PS1 version handling.
CTR was the best kart racing of that time. Mario Kart 64 just came second, buts thats pretty good considering how much of those games we got at the time. It was the first time Mario Kart actually has a competitor, at least until Sonic & SEGA All Stars Racing Transformed, which is also stunning to look at, and a blast to play.

Also, some others really good kart racing games were:
- Konami Krazy Racers
- Looney Tunes Space Race
- Chocobo Racing
It's outclassed the last two decades of Kart Racers in every way except visuals and online multiplayer for obvious reasons.
They think it's better than any game in the Mario Kart series, and I would agree.
From a graphical standpoint, CTR is definitely outdated, but in terms of art direction? It's in a league of its own

-Full single player campaign with story, cutscenes, and 5 full Hub worlds, Hub Bosses, as well as earnable Trophies/Relics/CTR Token/Gems amongst the hubs/bosses/tracks.
-Varied tracks that reward high skill
-The music is some of the best in the genre
-Extremely balanced roster between light/fast, medium/average, and heavy/strong racers
-Rewarding slide boost mechanic
-Item roster is extremely fair and well-balanced, with the added risk/reward strategy of enhancing all items with the Wumpa fruit system
-Battle/Tournament/Arcade/VS/Time Trial/Adventure modes, up to 4 players
It's a dense, well balanced kart racer, and just damn fun. Sonic All Stars and Mario Karts have come close or done better in some ways, but not the way CTR fired on all cylinders. If it weren't for it's technical age, it would be lapping all other racers out there even today. With this remake (if they nail the controls/online and balancing) it finally has the chance.
Oh I know that but I also thought that with Sony owning the rights to CTR crash being dlc in smash would not make sense to promote it. But I also saw that windows central got it so there's always a good chance the switch will get it (I would actually go with the PC version but a switch does at least mean something)
Same, and now we will potentially be able to test this online against others and get absolutely fucking destroyed lol.
it'll be pretty sad if it's not.
if you have no nostalgia for it there's like a 20% chance your reaction will be "wtf is this shit?", but if you end up liking it it's great, has great single player content too.
It's fitting too because Naughty Dog started development on CTR by remaking Diddy Kong Racing levels in order to get a feel for how to make a good kart racer.
I love the concept of kart / mascot racers at least. Mario Kart 8 and Sonic Racing Transformed being my recent-ish favourites in the genre. Mario Kart 7 and Joy Ride Turbo were solid games too.
