These guys were my childhood.. by paratroopaCx These guys were my childhood.. by paratroopaCx
A dragon, a bandicoot and a plumber... these three are video game LEGENDS!~ I grew up playing each of their video games, and I still do today!

:bulletpurple: Spyro the Dragon :

Oh gosh where do I start? How could one little dragon's video game series be so AWESOME!??!! I loved Spyro for the gameplay, the nostalgia, the characters, the stories and just the scenery was completely amazing!
I still play the first 3 games on my Playstation 1, good times...
Well, Spyro used to be awesome, ever since Insomaniac Games sold it to this other company, Spyro has completely failed in the new games! I mean just have a lot at him! > :iconspyroplz: EWW!
I absolutely HATE the new Spyro, but I'll always love the classic. :heart:

:bulletorange: Crash Bandicoot :

Crash Bandicoot 1 was the first video game I ever got, and I instantly fell in love with it. I've loved Crash ever since I was 5.. and I still do today! Also cause of the scenery, characters, enemies, levels, music and etc.etc.etc.
But... it was only good when Naughty Dog made the games, but ever since they've moved Crash to PS2... they've made him look really, weird. o___o
I mean, he looked perfect the way he always was! He doesn't really need tattoos or abs.

But, much like Spyro, I'm a full on classic Crash Bandicoot fan in my heart. :love:

:bulletred: Super Mario :
:iconinloveplz: MARIO?!?!?! *squeeeaaallll*!!

Okie, I had a SNES when I was little (and I still have it in my room!) and I only had 3 Mario games: Super Mario World, Super Mario Bros. 3 and Yoshi's Island
I wasn't really that fond of Mario as a kid, I mean, I did like the games but I just didn't really understand the plots and stuff like that. :meow:
But now that I've grown up, I've become extremely in love with the whole series! I've even started taken a strong liking to even draw the characters. So, I'll always love the Mario series, no matter what. :heart:
I just hope Nintendo doesn't die out like Insomaniac Games and Naughty Dog! :noes:

Comments are welcome! Thank you! ^^

Spyro the Dragon - whoever currently owns him :(
Crash Bandicoot - whoever currently ownds him... :crying:
Super Mario - Nintendo!

SPYRO AND CRASH >.> but it sucks when all you can play is skylanders and dawn of the dragon, but I never play them cause they aren't the classics. Skylanders gameplay sucks, and dawn of the dragon I know wow mostly everything is <.<

My childhood is through these too. The legend of spyro is OK but it can't really beat the old spyro. Same with the new crash it's okay... but the classic one is my fave.

Can't say I blame her. I, too, hate The Legend of Spyro trilogy and the Skylanders series with every fiber of my being. :bleh: :thumbsdown: :iconthumbsdownplz: To put it more simply, I hate these sh*tty games with a burning passion. :bleh: :thumbsdown: :iconthumbsdownplz:

Hence the reason why artwork and written work based on The Legend of Spyro trilogy and the Skylanders series are STRICTLY FORBIDDEN in my :iconspyroandamdrag: group.

Oh OK.

Everyone have different opinions, whether you like it or not. I will ALWAYS have a negative opinion about the shitty new Spyro games so deal with it.

I Also Have A Spyro The Dragon! But The Game Is Only Spyro The Dragon: The Dawn Of The Dragon! I Have The Game On My PS3!

Erm... I don't think :iconparatroopacx: gives a damn about that crappy game. :bleh: :thumbsdown: :iconthumbsdownplz: She's all about the old-school Spyro games, especially the first three Spyro games. Heck, she even resented the The Legend of Spyro trilogy and the Skylanders series verbally in her artist's comment and in her "Let's Play" Super Mario Galaxy videos on Youtube. :bleh: :thumbsdown: :iconthumbsdownplz:

Nearly everyone here listed in the comments page hated The Legend of Spyro trilogy and Skylanders series with a burning passion.

But don't take this the wrong way, everyone here can't agree with you, y'know.
