A Nostaglic Journey: Spyro the Dragon

As a 90's kid, I grew up with many great entertainment that is considered nostalgic today. One of these forms of entertainment would be video games. During this time, my mom had gotten the first PlayStation and she was the #1 gamer in the house. I was up in coming with my ways of being a gamer. Probably my mom's favorite game was Spyro. As time went on, I started to get really attached to Spyro too. Soon I would watch mom play the games and she in turn would watch me. Every time I got stuck with a boss, I was too frustrated and afraid to even try to beat it, so I would hand the controller to her. I would hide in between my hands as she did it and she would say to me to watch so I would know what to do. I tried but after a while I put my hands back towards my eyes again. I guess I just wanted my mom to do the hard parts and I would pick up where she left off.

Spyro, has gotten more recognition with the Skylander series and seems to be reaching we within the new generation. However, in my opinion, nothing beats the original. Spyro was a part of my childhood and was one of the few games I remembered that led me to love videogames.

For those of you that have no idea what Spyro is all about, I will explain. Spyro the Dragon is a series of games that follows Spyro saving his world from different evils and saving dragons along the way. Of course the last titled Spyro game was Spyro; Dawn of the Dragon n the PS3 and XBox 360. They did have a series that was about where Spyro came from and those games came unto the Wii.

Spyro the Dragon has been a game that I can never put down. Even though the story of Spyro is linear, everything else about it makes it charming. The replay value is amazing and the series is a collect-a-thon for any complitionist. The one thing that really got to me though was the soundtrack.

The soundtrack is amazing. Some of my favorite songs come from the 3rd Spyro game Spyro: Year of the Dragon  and other games of the series (except for the last game). It gives a real jazzy feel and makes me want to dance, even the boss music.

So why this post about a dragon? Well since Sony is bringing back (or by this time brought back) Ratchet and Clank and other games, I feel this series should make a comeback.
