[POLL] Would you be all for yet another patch for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy?


Yes, N. Sane just got a patch 3 months ago but this isn’t enough as some critical issues still remain in all ports, like collision hitboxes on objects, character model pillbox on rounded hitboxes, jumping from being unified to being way more strictly optimized for each game, control handling and sensitivity in standard and non-standard levels (motorcycle and jetski levels, mother of god, why?!), lighting and environment inconsistencies and possible performance issues, not to mention the lack of Leaderboards on the Switch.

This post is not to indicate at all that this is going to happen from a publisher like Activision but, if it did happen again, would you be all for it, provided the jumping, handling and hitboxes are at least fixed?
