Another month has come and gone, which means that it’s time for another character spotlight. Today, I’m talking about an old school guy who has made a comeback recently.
Spyro is nostalgic for me. I remember playing his games on the Play Station way back when. He’s always had a soft spot in my heart mainly because he’s so cute.
He was first introduced in 1998 Spyro the Dragon for Play Station. His series continued in Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. The Legend of Spyro, released in 2006-2008, was a trilogy of games that was supposedly a rebooted version of the previous games.
Most recently, Spyro has appeared in the Skylanders series (2011-2016).
I was excited to play Skylanders when it was first announced because I remembered Spyro from my childhood. However, Spyro wasn’t the same.
They had changed him, but I enjoyed his character all the same. He’s still a cute, purple dragon to me. And, while I didn’t play the Skylanders game for very long, I thought it was a good game. It’s still something I plan to get back to at some point, but now I’m six games behind, so… Who knows?
Still, I’ve always loved Spyro and I would love to try the original games again sometime.
Do you remember Spyro? Did you play the games? Let me know in the comments below!
