Why are there literally zero threads about this?
Spyro and Crash were definitely my childhood favorite PS1 series so when I heard Spyro was getting the same treatment as the Crash remake, I was hyped. I'm a good deal into the first game and it's bringing back very fond memories. The music is great and the gameplay is simple but fun. They took mega liberties with the character designs of the dragons and while I haven't played the sequels yet, I've seen what they did to those characters and I'm mostly all for it. They were very simple designs before but now that we can do more, it's cool they went that extra mile. My favorites are the dragons in the first game. It gives each one some flavor and makes me intrigued to see what kind of character they are even if they just have a few seconds of screen time.
When I was a kid, I never realized how easy the games were. Maybe it's the nostalgia talking but I don't mind at all as an adult. Spyro is just too fun to control and the art style is so colorful and fun.
Anyway, I think this is a good example of a natural character design upgrade vs. one that maybe takes some iffy liberties.
