Character Spotlight: Spyro

Rachel Mii Double JumpHappy Tuesday!

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.


Character Spotlight: Spyro the Dragon

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!

  1. Its funny Insomniac is probably my favorite developer but I’ve never played the original Spyro games. I have played Skylanders and I’d advise that maybe just don’t return to it. The games themselves are fine but nothing special and the draw comes from the toys, which got more and more gimmicky as the series continued. It’s a money suck that isn’t really all that fun.

    • The original games were great, but I do remember the camera being a bit dizzying, lol.
      And honestly, that’s why I haven’t returned to the Spyro games. I do think the toys are cool, but I just don’t want to spend the money on them.
