HOW in the WORLD..?! by Kaykao HOW in the WORLD..?! by Kaykao
Honestly. Its like you can SEE his personality and spunk being destroyed as time goes on. X-x

And at least Legend Spyro had a SNOUT if not a personality... Skylanders Spyro doesn't have even THAT. What is this world coming to... -sigh-

The original Spyro will forever and always be my favorite. He was just so damn spunky and adorable...He was one of those characters that you simply couldn't help but fall in love with.

Classic had a huge potential for development. Just was needed more creative approach to work, and more patience. All owners of that franchise after Insomniac (though they were not the owners, actually) tried to go more simply way, and just didn't thought how they could use things what they already had. They recieved easy money, but reached series to a deadlock, time after time.
As result, we have three absolutely different dragons with same name and "honorary" title one of most luckless franchises in the world. Though all could be otherwise.

Maybe it's because they think that just because they can have better graphics, means that they can change an entire character just to suit those better graphics... Sounds pretty stupid if you ask me

God that thing is ugly, I refuse to call it Spyro.

I'm sort of a classic Spyro fantard, but I thought the LoS series had fun gameplay and I liked it for what it was worth. However, I hated how they took away Spyro's sharp tongue and hot head and just turned him into Frodo the dragon, and for the most part the story just felt like bad Spyro fanfic (honestly, when I was in Junior High I made up stories so similar to the LoS saga that nowadays it scares me).

Needless to say, when I heard they were planning to reboot Spyro again and make the new game use action figures to unlock content in the game, I was thoroughly pissed at what they'd turned Spyro (the character that got me interested in console video games) into.

Also, maybe when they were making the new games something went wrong while designing Spyro, and it was all messed up and I bet they were like "Ah heck, who cares? Just keep it like that" XD

But seriously, the new Spyro, it's just pathetic... so sad... :facepalm:

I have to admit that even though I loathe the new design Skylanders is a pretty fun game. Regardless, original Spyro will always be best Spyro.

Skylanders is enjoyable, although I never play with the new Spyro. Although I do hope that someday someone tries to revive the old Spyro, just because the games were so much better then. Even if the chance is nearly nonexistent.

Same here, I had to rename the Spyro in the game so that when I need a magic type, I don't have to see that that mutant demon-pug is named after my dragon. I really do miss old Spyro, I used to have him just frolic around in the games so I could admire his design. ^-^

And don't worry, Spyro won't die even if we need to make our own fangames to do it. He's just too cool.

I should really do that sometime, the two characters don't really share anything other than a name and a color. Unfortunately the only original game I have that still work are Enter the Dragonfly and Ripto's Rage, but I still love playing them over and over again.

I believe I'll start learning how to program videogames if I get the chance, and perhaps get permission from Activision to make a fangame. Or join an effort to do so. Anything to give Spyro a little more screen time.

I don't have very many proper Spyro games at all, just one GBA game and A Hero's Tale. We didn't get many games when I was younger. :/ I remember liking him way before I had any games of him though. :)

You know, as long as you don't sell the product or make money off of it none of the companies can really tell you not too. That's why there's so many extensive fanmade Pokemon and My Little Pony games on the internet. I've only seen sort of minigames with Spyro in it though. :/ Oo! Maybe we can get people in on making a MMO Spyro game, with OC dragons and everything. :D

I just grew up watching my sister play the games and came to love him that way, only now am I finding myself really getting into playing them myself. We have all three originals and the GBA Spyro-Crash crossover, and Season of Flame for GBA, but unfortunately the balloons in the first game don't work and the disc for Year of the Dragon is cracked... Sigh.

I should start teaching myself something simple like Turing then, just in case... Maybe start thinking of a plot in my spare time. Characters too.
An MMO Spyro game would totally. Freaking. Awesome. I would get addicted to it very quickly if one were made; we should get people thinking about that sort of thing. I'd have to look into what the setup for MMO games is in terms of plot but I'm sure I could come up with a few good ideas for it.

Sounds like a plan 8) I don't know the first thing about game coding, but it'd be fun to find out! The game could have NPCs of Spyro, Hunter, Sparx, Ember, Flame and Elora to help people on quests/give them tasks to do, but I don't know about the antagonists. Perhaps Gnasty Gnorc's gang?

I'm not quite that computery yet either so I'd have to learn too. Those NPC's would work well, although we could probably throw the Professor in as something too. Gnasty Gnorc could definitely be one of the enemies; but perhaps in parts of the game world Ripto and The Sorceress could screw some things up too?

Seriously, my best description for Skylander's Spyro is, a creepy goblin that was created off of spore. Seriously That's why I've stopped bashing so much on the series games because in those Spyro was at least recognizable.

HOnestly it wasn't so much the characters but the plot in LoS that ticked me off, but in all honesty you're correct. Skyro is nothing to me and never will be... unfortunately the rest of my family has practically given up on the little guy, so we do actually have Skylanders. Really it was a decent game, but if it hadn't featured goblin-skyro it would have been a lot better.

Yeah, the plot was better than the one in Skylanders though. Sadly, in my household I'm really the only one that even knows who Spyro is. I was starting to lose my faith too so I fell for the Skylanders stuff, I have quite a few and I'm not really proud of it. Skyro is skary if you catch my drift. I'm just hoping and praying for a way to get the classic back.

Even if cliche, I couldn't agree more.

My sister still knows who spyro is;; all my siblings do... they just couldn't care less. But then that's why I love digging up our glitchy copy of Ripto's Rage; sadly YotD is cracked and the balloons in the first one always freeze the game. ;-;

I know right? He isn't the dragon he started out as at all. They are making a new Skylanders game and they arent even including Spyro's name in the title. Skylanders Giants. Spyro's adventure I could stand because at least they were still focusing a little on the dragon, but now he is just up and gone. Skylanders spyro doesn't even get any recognition anymore. I'm scared of whats gonna happen to spyro. :pissed::pissed::pissed::iconspyroohnoesplz::pissed::pissed::pissed:

I think spyro is really getting close to being officially dead and gone forever... That makes me mad. But yeah, I think they've thrown out their worst. I don't want to see anymore of this. That's why I'm determined to get into that carrier field so I can have a chance of bringing him back.

All I can do is hope for the best until I become not-a-minor, and figure out some way to get a decent amount of income. You let me know if yours ever gets going as well, because if there was a possibility I could donate money to whatever company you're a part of, and if it would help your goal, I would be glad to.

Love the first two and always will. I will never love the last one. Activision has no concern about the gamers who grew up playing Spyro. When I first saw skylanders, I was heartbroken. I would of like to see the Spyro movie but they cancelled it. Spyro is no longer the main character at all in skylanders. He was always the main character in the past. So im with everyone who feels the same about skylanders as I do, and the ones who feel differently can go shut the #$&% up and leave the true fans alone!
