All of our childhoods have that one special game that is ours, some have Mario, some have Crash Bandicoot, for me I was always about Spyro the Dragon, and while I cannot bear to see the current state my beloved dragon is in thanks to the Skylanders series, it was a welcome relief to see some love and attention given to the Spyro Reignited Trilogy courtesy of Activision and Toys For Bob. The original games Sypro, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage and Spyro 3: Year Of The Dragon are all included here, and while the entire first game is on...
