Hopefully the new Reignited Trilogy does the series justice.

Gavin says: Spyro 1 did well but from then on forget it!! Story has a lot do with the series going down the toilet hell it should have been flushed away!!

The last Spyro game I even gave a shit about was A Hero’s Tail and while I do achieve 100% completion it is decent at best. Yet even with that said I still to this day play the original trilogy from time to time because they’re timeless classics I’ll never truly grow tired of. Hell I’m gonna be playing through all three of them and getting 100% completion once again to get ready for Spyro Reignited so they can be fresh in my mind with it drops in September. Definite Day one buy for me, no question. I have full complete confidence in Toys For Bob after everything they’ve shown us so far and they’re doing a fantastic job faithfully recreated Spyro, so they’ve earned my purchase as far as I’m concerned.

Wizardcor 9 ... um sorry but by the footage of Spyro 1 and 2 remade (we will eventually see Spyro 3 as well) i dont think that its gonna bomb. Now Bubsy was wasted garbage that nobody asked to come back yet our memes caused the bobcat to recieve a nervewrecking unnecessary new game 21 years after the atrocity that was Bubsy 3D. Everyone thought Shaq-Fu gets no new game yet that one got a sequel and Barack Obama DLC. We live in a time where Shrek 5 and other weird stuff is happening. Toys for Bob making Spyros remake is nothing compared to that.

Nicholas Barton breh the reignited trilogy remakes Spyro 1, Spyro 2 Riptos Rage and Spyro 3 Year of the Dragon from the groundup just like how the N. Sane Trilogy remade Crash 1, Crash 2 Cortex Strikes Back and Crash 3 Warped anew. They even revived Stormy Ascent for the first game and made Future Tense for Crash 3. If there is any scrapped stage or general content left out of Spyros original Trilogy they could still do what Vicarious Visions did with Crash and revive that content as DLC. Spyro recieves the same treatment as Crash (while already getting Xbox along PS4 at launch) and if the game sells well, i can see PC and Switch versions or even new games like the original games happening. At least be glad they arent ignored like Banjo-Kazooie or Gex.

What killed it? A bunch of mediocre sequels that couldn't live up to the original trilogy and Skylanders.

I feel as though there should be both a dark and gritty reboot AND a throwback to the original, as well as a revival of the previously cancelled animated film adaptation based on the Legend of Spyro trilogy. I also think they should port all the PS2 Spyro games to PS4 and make PS4 remakes of the Gameboy and Nintendo DS games.

i always loved spyro. My first game whas a new beginning. Dawn of the dragon is really my favorite. I hope they will realeze more spyro games in the future.

Enter the Dragonfly, it did ruin SPyro and was upset, people seem to stop liking Spyro. Still Spyro (& Sparx) is my all-time favorite video game characters and hope he come back. Now he's back with remastered. Liked Legend of Spyro, enjoyed the storylines. Did play Skylanders but stop at the end of first game.

Well being an adult that grew up on cartoony stuff and most of all the 90s ps1 duo talked about in this vid I wouldn't mind a new spyro after the reignited releases. Though i will say it seems ill be waiting til the last min to preorder. But my favorite spyro games are year of the dragon and dawn of dragon.
Jotaro Kujo (4 days ago)
I loved a hero's tail and as a big spryro fan I appreciated all of the games whether people thought they were good or not. I loved playing them. Even enter the dragonfly
Steven Green (7 days ago)
Year of the dragon will always be my favourite, but I greatly enjoyed the Legend of Spyro series. I thought the story was great, the production values were through the roof and the gameplay was just damn fun. I still replay A New Beginning every few years. LOS definitely deserves a second look.
Kells Engram (7 days ago)
Dawn of the Dragon was my favorite one due to graphics and the choice of being Spyro or Cynder. I can’t wait for Reignited Trilogy to come out!

I remember year of the dragonfly having the longest loading screens I had ever experienced.
Dylan Krueger (10 days ago)
My favorite (Partially clouded by nostalgia) Spyro game was Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage. Switching the disks between Crash Team Racing and Spyro 2 gave me the best feeling as a kid and I hope CTR gets remastered at some point

Honestly the answer is simple. Losing your original developer. Lots of iconic games from the PS1 era were abandoned by their developers as the developers moved on and shuffled off by the publishers to exist as zombie franchises hoping to cash in on the brand value by offloading development to less competent developers. We saw it happen with Crash Bandicoot too, remember? The concept of keeping developers with a franchise for the long haul hadn't really fully stuck during the PS1 era.

I'll play it if they change the trilogy to the skylanders style of spyro and if it let's u still do something like get new levels with older skylanders figures
The legend of spyro games aren't as bad as pepole say. In fact I loved them and I mostly loved dawn of the dragon
DjXforce Pony (17 days ago)
Fav spyro games are year of the dragon, a heroes tail and dawn of the dragon its hard to pick one favorite
Shadicus T. Lighteye (18 days ago)
*UNPOPULAR OPINION ALERT* Dawn of the Dragon and Ripto's Rage are both tied for my favorite Spyro game.

Q: what kills a frenchise A: bad games, DUH? 7:30 *BULLLSHITTTT* .... next you going to say "Single Player aint beloved anymore* GENRES DON'T AGE ! - if there hasn't such things in a while, there is more need then EVER to do it... - look how Yokolaile (wrong written) was created! People do anything for a good 'old' platformer! Fucking xbox Banjo racing game shit <.< god lord .... JonTron had a howl piece on that................ UGH.............. wasted!
Im honestly hoping that the other series A new beginning- dawn of the dragon comes back just like the first 3 games. I never got to play those since my ps2 broke and I didnt have a regular old Xbox. Ive been dying to play it for a while.

When a dragon dies, it does not truly leave this world. It binds itself with nature, offering hope for the future.
Alessandro Cussino (21 days ago)
I have a BIG HYPE for the Spyro Reignited Triligy !!! But i also still waiting for a Spyro game based on the adventures of the son/sons of Spyro and Cynder. This since the end of Dawn of the dragon in 2008 ... TEN YEARS AGO !!!

I definitely don't want the series to go in a darker direction. They've been NAILING the Reignited Trilogy. It's colorful, the character designs are fun and fresh while still staying true to their characters (Spyro looks amazing, oh my gosh) and the games have always had a goofy side. I feel that's what they should keep running with. But I do really hope we get new Spyro games in the future!

Look as a Spyro fan I will say this, the first 3 games that came out where awesome I loved I played them over and over hell I even unlocked all the stuff in each one of them but the only other Spyro games that could meet the same standards as the first 3 are the last 3, New Beginning, Eternal Night and Dawn of the Dragon. Those 3 where honestly the last 3 good Spyro games.
Mr Obscura Le Mofo (25 days ago)
Its good and all, but isn't spyro actually dead? I mean doesn't he just disappear with cinder after his battle with that other evil purple dragon? (forgot his name) I haven't kept up on the spyro news at all lately.
PyroWolf Gaming (26 days ago)
I think that year of the dragon and dawn of the dragon were my all time favorite Spyro games I really loved legend of Spyro but to me it just felt to much like lord of the rings but I loved the idea they went for where as the only problem I had with the original trilogy was that it wasn’t really a dramatic storyline and I get that was what they were going for but I’ve always just loved a dramatic epic. Also did anyone pick up on how between Spyro the dragon and Legend of Spyro, the Spyros were polar opposites one very extroverted and the other seriously timid

I’ve only played the legend of Spyro a new beginning in 2018 and I think it looks good for it’s age but my game kinda freezes up at the end so I can’t play it it sucks but it’s a good game I want a new kind of Spyro game like one that involves different characters like Mario or something could make it interesting with new mechanics

I think they should bring it back and my favorite spyro game was (Spyro Dawn of the Dragon) and yes a more dark and greedy game.

Heroman237 (1 month ago)
First of all, SkyLanders absolutely killed Spyro. End of story. Secondly, the three Legend of Spyro games with Elijah Wood will always hold a special place in my heart. And lastly, if they made a new Spyro game, I would actually kinda wanna see some kind of darker, more serious game. Like, more realistic. Blood, visceral combat. Well... maybe not Dead Space visceral...
Damian Inkwell (1 month ago)
My favorite was the 4th 3d game. Ithis was always my favorite I overused three copies of the first three each till the game was Lazer burned. I would love a dark gritty remake. The kids have Skylanders.

Anyone else think a hero's tale was an awesome game? Everyone who criticizes it seems to brush it off as not good but they never show footage of all the different realms, the complex puzzles, side quests, good boss fights. It's the only spyro game i played yet it's one of my all time favorites. What makes it worse than the older games, it seemed like a masterpiece to me.
lmfao ithe guy from somniac was really just being a brown noser everyone knows sky landers completely fucking killed spyro and if insomniac does bring back spyro lets hope they dont keep his ugly af design for starters

What's up with sound editing? It sounds like some parts were recorded in different rooms. Spyro was great. I finally got to play the oryginal trilogy a year ago. I had so much fun. I will definitely check out the reignited trilogy. As long as all if them will be on the disc.
Jason (1 month ago)
The closest new games we have to Spyro and Crash are Dark souls and Monster hunter. The action adventure genre, summarised perfectly in games like Kingdomhearts, Spyro, Jak and Daxter, is still alive in the form of much grittier games. I think giving Spyro to From software might be an excellent decision. Particularly if the only vision these guys have is to put new paint on an old game. Such wasted potential.

Eric Zronek (1 month ago)
spyro was dead after the third ps1 game, year of the dragon or whatever, whenever they changed spyro's format and gameplay style, it died. insomniac should just make a new spyro game like that, itd take little time, and you gotta get stewart coplan from the police to do the soundtrack like in the first game.

What killed it for me: Sparx started talking, Spyro looked like he was stoned 24/7 and the controls caused me to break a TV after the 3rd installment.

" The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon" (2008) was an AMAZING game. I loved it so much, mainly because you had to play it with a friend.

Tbh I would like a new spyro game where he can fly any and everywhere like Dawn of the Dragon except they should not make him stuck to another dragon the whole time I felt like cynder was holding him back

Jaxon Hilliard (1 month ago)
MAKE MORE SPYRO GAMES!! Spyro was my childhood loved playing him. If they went back that would be cool if they went forward maybe making him older like the kids that originally played him maybe a little darker to draw in more younger players either way Spyro will always be a favorite

Shadow Legacy was dope.
Cyntaria (1 month ago)
I never played the GBA games but for as long as I can remember, I was obsessed with Gateway to Glimmer and Year of the Dragon as theywere the first games I ever played (along with Pokemon). My very first DS game was Spyro ShadowLegacy and I loved it. I honestly dislike the PS2 main games while my friends loved them. I absolutely love the Legend of Spyro reboot but as separate games from the Spyro I grew up with.

I would like to see a slightly dsrker spyro where hes an adult. They teased images in the old spyro book on the ps1. And i thought dawn of the dragon was a good game. Enter the dragonfly was..bad but still fun I guess
DarkSnake Nerdmaster (1 month ago)
I liked the remake trilogy, and I will go out and buy the remaster because I never played the originals. It's good to see spyro come back from the brink. Skylanders was basically a spyro game that didn't need spyro in it. You could take spyro out and the game would sell even better.

Spyro was murderd when they turned it to a full on combat game and gave spyro and sparx a complete different personality. And made it dark. Spyro should be magical , with mini games exploring secrets and collecting earning rewards. And trying to find out how the hell you get to the chest thats located on the other side of you. The biggest mistake they could make is change spyro completly with the legend of spyro and skylanders.

There's so many reasons why I love the Legend of Spyro trilogy that I could speak for days but, I'll just speak my main reason here: Spyro and Igitus' voice actors. At first I didn't think much of it as a kid but later on I decided to see who voiced the characters in the game I grew up with since I was a wee little girl. Now hear me out, I know many of you know Elijah from Lord of the Rings but I have personally never evan seen it. Instead when I saw Elijah Woods Voiced LoS Spyro, all my mind could come up with was my favorite Tim Burton movie "9". And moving on to another subjecy, for many this movie is marked as a disney rip-off or is hated because of a certain dragon.... That's right I'm talking about Quest for Camelot. Now I know there are a few fans, me being one of them, but what really struck me is I never realized who voiced the villian of the movie... While it may not be his best role, it still warms my heart to find voice actors who voiced certain character's to have voiced someone you never would have guessed. Oh dear I'm rambling aren't I? Well even if Ruber wasn't Gary Oldman's best role it's still funny to imagine him with Ignitus' voice.

I only ever owned a copy of the first Spyro game. But I have seen the other two original games. I'm happy that Spyro, Like Crash, is getting a remaster and going back to his roots. I also did enjoy the Legend of Spyro games because it had a very interesting lore and storyline. Sure it was much darker and more combat based, but it was nice to see a more mature Spyro game. Also the voice of Elijah Wood playing Spyro was really cool. All in all Spyro is a very great game and it's wonderful to see him come back into the spotlight after so many years. I know Spyro: The Reignited Trilogy will brings back the old fans and as well as some new fans who could enjoy a fun loving purple dragon.

I hope the reignited trilogy gets a PC release like crash bandicoot did. Spyro 2 gate way to glimmer will always be my favorite of the trilogy. I never played season of ice and shadow legacy I also never played enter the dragon fly I tried to get season of ice on my emulator but the rom version I got was freezing every few moments even the rom of it on emulparadise or whatever that site is called had those freezing problem alsol. If someone knows where I get the roms for spyro season of ice and spyro season of flame without freezing every time tell me.
