Hopefully the new Reignited Trilogy does the series justice.
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.

I can't pick a particular game,, only levels really. How many love the ninjas but curse the glitchy AF game lol, no matter PS2 or game cube! The PS1 games and Enter the Dragonfly are special to me, then he just goes dark. I don't want to war when playing spyro. I want jump off ledges looking for hidden rooms and caves. I want to smash walls with cracks looking for hidden treasures, I want brain teasing not the constant high gear fire fire fire combat. All this waring type gaming is not great for little kids either. But hey I have 2 PS1s, a PS2, PS3 BC, and PS4. I purchased Power Rangers, Crash trilogy and pre purchased the Spyro Reignited. Not too happy they changed the background music. Oh well, can't have it all right?

My 3 favorite games were riptos rage, enter the dragonfly, and a heros tale and i want a reboot because i want a way better version of enter the dragonfly (plus fixed controls and bugs so everyone can beat it and enjoy it) and a heros tale because those are the 2 main games in the whole entire trilogy that will hold a special place in my heart

I haven't watched the video, but I'm going to go on a limb here and say Activision. Activision killed Spyro.

The first Spyro game was the first one I ever played and I was addicted since then. To the point I got permission to buy another Spyro game. and that was Dawn of The Dragon, which I cherish. I love the original trilogy and the legend of Spyro trilogy, as I feel like those both were the best parts of the Spyro universe. one being full of child wonder and the other being much darker and realistic, and for me, I love them both equally

As much as I love the original trilogy dawn of the dragon is probably my favorite game. The graphics were amazing for the time, fighting was cool, you could actually fly and most importantly you could play with another friend. I loved the co op mechanism of the game.

The second spyro is the highest on my list back from the ps1 days, I wouldn't mind if they went to make new games along with crash. The same basic guidelines doesn't really matter, take a look at mario games they are still doing the same thing, and odessey is an awesome game imo.

Personally, I believe that Spyro: Enter The Dragonfly was the beginning of the downfall and because that game was so bad compared to the original three, it had an adverse affect on every release afterwards. A Hero’s Tail I actually thought was decent, but the utter heartbreak at Enter The Dragonfly just still stung. Reignited looks brilliant and can’t wait for it!

zombiewolf (14 days ago)
The 1st one was and still is my favourite, but I loved the whole original trilogy. After that all went to shit. Back then I didn't even know Insomniac had left; was just wondering why did my fav games suddenly suck. Then at some point found out and was like "oh." Though, I have good vibes of the remake footage and dev interviews I've seen and have high hopes for it. Can't wait for September!
Ross Passe (15 days ago)
personally I like the LOS franchise (Eternal Night and Dawn of the Dragon in particular) because it seemed to me that they took the game seriously for a change. for me, the classic Spyro games were way too ridiculous and unfulfilling even by my standards (Spyro's skateboard, jetpack wielding penguins with rocket launchers, yetis killing themselves, and actual humans in the story made those games dead to me). TLOS had enough action (the third game in particular), decent graphics, and they were actually challenging for a change (I have yet to see someone who managed to finish them without dying at least once). I'd love to see a continuation of that trilogy some day (or a more serious remake).

They say they were sick of other games being too gritty. But Skylanders was too far in the other direction. Why can't they make a good platformer that is both cartoony with some darker elements. Give us a balance

The 3 original Spyro's I played almost exclusely on PS1! I had other games too but if I felt like jumping on my PlayStation, I got out any Spyro game! I'm super excited for the Reignited Trilogy. I'm hoping it's just better graphics, music, cleaned up voices & cutscenes, & improvements to the controls. I loved all the stories & all the different mini games. I hope they don't change any of that!

My dudes im not even gonna lie, even though Spyro was a dragon a had a crush on him. Tbh i loved 'Enter the Dragonfly' and the lengend games. Itll take a while for me to play remastered simply cause im poor though lmao. Fkn games costing more than my lifes worth
DaRkLoRd1061 (23 days ago)
i just feel like it's a decline in quality, having the original developers removed from an ip is never good for it, as the new devs usually feel some obligation to imitate some one elses work to appease existing fans. gears of war and halo are suffering a similar fate today, even tho some of the core team is the same, the real visionaries are long gone.

I hope we get a new Spyro game after the Reignited trilogy, it should be open world with the same style that the original 3 games had like going to different worlds but make the world more alive and have random encounters to have a hat feeling of being alive in the world, now that would be fun.

I hated Dawn of the Dragon, Eternal Night too. The controls in A Hero's Tail were obnoxious compared to the controls of all the others. I still prefer the originals by Insomniac.

2-Cousins (25 days ago)
My favorite was 3, then I want to say 1, then 2, but I never owned 1, only a friend did, so I'm not sure. I hope this remastered trilogy will come to PC? I loveeee Spyro. I always wanted to play the newer games but never had the platforms. I mean, I switched from PS1 to XBOX 360 in 2009. I've always wondered about that other dragon later in the series though, I thought it was his girlfriend? The design on that dragon is amazing and I would like to see a good spyro game with her(?) in it.
Luvsonic1000 (25 days ago)
I really miss the Sierra company. It was rumored they were going to make a continuity after when they were done with Dawn of the Dragon. But Sierra from the company had their struggles and got bought from what I think.. Actionvision? For those who have the copies of dawn of the dragon with a Sierra logo.. those are rare and hard to find after many of the other copies have the Actionvision logo. After that it was told they were going to make a spyro movie that was a continuity from DotD but it was scrapped. Enough said, I enjoyed the original spyro games and the legend of Spyro trilogy. For us Spyro fans, we just want the creators to dive back when Spyro was always a main focus. To be fair it was nice that Skylanders was provided by the new Era of kids who enjoyed the game but.. it lacked so much on how so many missed Spyro's design and Spyro being well, Spyro.
Whitney D.C. (26 days ago)
Me personally I feel they could do more Spyro games that follow kind of the initial storyline. Like the first three games were good continue going with that.
Thomas Wilcoxon (26 days ago)
Honestly I'm just super hyped for anything Spyro related it's been forever since I've been able to play as my favorite purple dragon. My favorite Spyro game though would have to be The Legend Of Spyro Dawn Of The Dragon. I'd play this for hours on end when I had my PS2... just ugggh Spyro made my childhood so great and sparked my interest between the dragons and dinosaurs if it wasn't for Spyro I feel like my whole life would be different.

Makotokei Satoruko (27 days ago)
The original trilogy was the best, & a hero's tale was decent. The rest of the games weren't of interest to me. The skylander's spyro model looks like a dragon that should've been aborted.
SkyWolfAlpha (28 days ago)
Switching from console to handheld created a division, I think. (Especially for those one-game-system-only households). Then for me, Enter the Dragonfly was the nail in the coffin. That game was just... beyond terrible. It was utterly riddled with bugs and even spelling mistakes. It's like they skipped QA entirely. As much as I tried, I just couldn't finish the game. Between all the crashes, excessive loading times (how poorly optimized was it? Geez...), it was too frustrating to keep playing. Years later, I picked up Hero's Tail, but only after reading reviews first (didn't want to get burned like with Enter the Dragonfly. I traded in my N64 to get that one!). Pretty solid, and it's still fun to come back and play. Same platforming, more variety, better graphics. I was never sure where it was in the timeline, or if it was just kind of... off doing its own thing, or even a reboot attempt. The last one I played was Dawn of the Dragon. It was a gift, and I didn't know much about the game play. First Spyro game I played where I could do what I've wanted to since the very first game - FLY ANY TIME! So that was a huge bonus. Gameplay was disappointing, though. As you said, it focused far more action. The platforming was still there, but it had to share the spotlight with onslaughts of enemies and breath attacks. Fwiw, the ones I've held on to are the original PSX trilogy and Hero's Tail. I still replay them from time to time. Even being 20 years old, it's held up well as far as gameplay (and solid level design, though the first entry was a bit sparse). REALLY looking forward to Reignited. It looks like everything I'd want in a remake: true to the original, but with better graphics.

So I'm right that LoS-DotD killed the Spyro series but, it had help from the horrific handhelds as well...
William Van Parys (28 days ago)
LoS-Dawn of the Dragon was terrible because it, used the same unfortunate gameplay element that made Crash Twinsanity, almost unplayable... In Crash Twinsanity, Crash and Cortex, were linked together (handcuffed as I recall) and, had to work together to survive... LoS-DotD, did the same with Spyro and Cynder but, neither game worked worth a shit...
Jarek4GamingDragon (28 days ago)
The Legend of spyro definitely didn't have a quality drop. It was simply a different style of game. Personally, I loved that trilogy way more than the original. I grew up, wasn't a kid any more, I enjoy the more realistic story telling and believable fictional world. Dawn of the dragon was a good point to leave on but I wish we'd get more of that.

Jarek4GamingDragon (28 days ago)
lol, you kidding? Dawn of the dragon did every thing the previous two games did but a ton better and updated the art style to look less childish. It was an improvement in every way.
William Van Parys (28 days ago)
Jarek4GamingDragon I thought Dawn of the Dragon was by far, the worst Spyro game ever!!! A New Beginning was, one of the best Spyro games ever so I, guess it sorta balances out...
Death Noks (28 days ago)
In my personal opinion and agreeing with a few others, Enter the Dragonfly was a step down from the original trilogy. The first three were fluid, fun and engaging. Enter the Dragonfly was short, clunky and the story was flat. There were no skill points or extras that Year of the Dragon had an abundance of. So I think Enter the Dragonfly just didn't have the same impact the first three does. A Hero's Tail just felt too animated, almost 2D compared to the original Trilogy by Insomniac. Then we move on to the Legend series. They were , in my opinion, a horrible attempt to revive or bring more life to Spyro, but in the end, for me, they felt short and exaggerated. I hated the combat system. It's Spyro, not Kratos. It would be like Crash get nun-chucks and drop kicking enemies. Basically, the first three followed the same fluid pattern and although a little repetitive, Ripto's Rage/Gateway to Glimmer and Year of the Dragon had enough extras and bits added to keep fans happy. So many games fall into this same cycle. Always keep the original formula that made the game great and just add more to the formula. Completely change the formula and you end up with a dodgy concoction. I am looking forward to the Reignited Trilogy though. Same formula, just added to :-)

DEVIN SCHWARZ (29 days ago)
Spyro was the first game that I ever OWNED. My dad had an SNES and we had like 3 games for it that he didnt play too often but then when we finally got a ps1 I begged him for the purple dragon game. He eventually gave in and promptly lost all usage rights to the ps1 as I would use it non stop for months trying to beat Spyro (I was terrible). Spyro will always hold a very dear place in my heart for starting me on the path of becoming a gamer.

my favorite one is a heros tail, especially in 4k on my pc :D. only thing i want from them is a heros tail pc release. native 4k, better graphics and effects, NO GMAEPLAY CHANGES, and of course 16:9 instead of 4:3

Maybe they can do a whole new Skylanders origins game... Witch tells how the world of Skylands was made... And showing SPYRO being reincarnated and being a new Skylander for the first time... That's basically it
Austin Cooney (1 month ago)
I think they should finish it after the last one they ended it on a cliff hanger after u beat the last boss we also never seen if they left that place or if him and cinder stuck together after it I think they should bring it back like they brought god of war back
Solappa (1 month ago)
the problem is that skylander has taken the world of spyro, using him has a tool to attract people from autside, then they made his part of the skylanders and became a secondary character with some scripted lines, you could play the whole game without even using him, wtf. Skylanders is not even bad, it's actually pretty nice, however using him as an promotional campaing was an orrible move. I would have fucking loved a game with more ""mature"" content, since the community is more older, the last ones were pretty nice, they were also going to make a movie before it was bought. that's also why i'm so unhappy
SlickEvader (1 month ago)
I believe they should make a remaster of the original Spyro and keep making more with the exact same mechanism with different story plots, I would love to see my childhood be brought back to life. Drawback is since it was played on PS1 and 2 I would need buy me a ps4.
