    Spyro the Dragon,
    Why are they still making this shit? Skylanders? figurines? i keep seeing kids walking around in the hifi stores holding either a set or a figurine, i hate how popular it is with Dragonaboos that eat up the shitty sappy "emotionally charged" story, just guessing here, but i mean Spyro just wouldn't work like that, it's a game that originally was just a light hearted adventure game where you play as a purple juvenile dragon and revolved around torching critters and gnorcs or spearing them with your horns (i can believe they were lethal in the Insomniac period because they were pointy and forward facing unlike the new design)
    and among other things just collecting gems n eggs n shit, and taught us at a young age that Arabs are bad people (they are the egg thiefs)
    And it worked,
    And above all, who is keeping these games alive? we can be relieved that after 5 years there has been no new crash bandicoot game, and probably never will be ever again.
    but they are still milking this.

    Then we had that thankfully fake movie, "from the producers of Eragon" yeah that really fills us with confidence....

    So why hasen't this fucking game been fucking binned for good?
    if only Sony had cared more for their exclusive titles back before the new millenium and paid money to retain the rights over Universal Interactive that way they could in the future have had quality titles made by the original developers (Sony owns Insomniac and Naughty Dog and a few others) or gotten some other dev that is a subsidiary or something to do it.
    Then maybe the PS3 wouldn't be just trying to imitate the 360 and Wii with it's library.

    I played my younger brother's copy solely for the 1000 gamerscore. Did you know that they're making a sequel? And did you really need to make a thread asking a question you already knew the answer to, or did you just want to keyboard-punch rage at some random things that nobody cares about?

    They are still making it because emotionally arrested adult mouthbreathers and children buy it.
    Thats all, there is no love for the franchise outside of the money it can make.
    And they will keep pumping out Spyro/COD/Halo/Resident Evil games until it becomes unprofitable where it will be discarded and forgotten.
    Until they need a new character or two for Super Smash Brothers 5; Anal Holocaust Zombie.

    Was Spyro ever good? I remember playing the very first game when it was released and wasn't impressed.

    Spyro was good, and so was the first game.
    it was just a matter of whether or not you found the whole thing appealing personally.
    Some people don't care for Mario, even his best games.
    not much i can really say about Spyro, if you were a kid and played it and found the charm appealing with it's strange characters then you had a blast with a solid platformer free roamer adventure.

    Even though i only owned the first game, well a pirate of sorts, friend burned a copy and chucked it y way, i still find it painful to see the market driven crap in stores now.
    It's not ruining my life, it's just one particular thing i was fond of which has been abused.
    I sympathise with old people whose favorite entertainments get remade terribly.

    I just look at old school before-furries-ruined-it days and remember a better time, where people got the shit beat out of them for having bizarre turn ons.

    You seem to think that this doesn't happen anymore.

    If it does, it's not going on frequently enough.
    I will be happy if around 50 furfags a month on FA keep putting up journals indicating they are in IC or their fellow furfaggots having the page turned into a memorial because ScatdiaperBadger got beat to death by skinheads last weekend and died in hospital.

    Skylanders symbolizes everything wrong with the universe.

    Spyro just never seems right as something serious,
    it was just fucking Ratchet and Clank back in the day, but with a purple dragon.
    In fact Ratchet and Clank the original first game from 2001 was alot like Spyro in many ways if you think about it.
    And that kind of design and and very light hearted tone really worked for those kinds of games.
