Classic Spyro by SillyStell Classic Spyro by SillyStell
Stamp changed to seem less like I'm pitting the two games against each other as thats not my intention.

Spyro was a classic game to me when I was 6 years old and to see him change so much made me some what disapointed, but that's not to say I hate the new games, there just not Spyro anymore.

Also I don't find the new games particuly fun, game play wise it's repetive, I miss the exploring but these are just personal preferences. Like I said Legend of Spyro isn't bad, but to me it's not amazing and just didn't pull me in like Spyro 1 2 and 3.

Now those who like the new Spyro please don't hate me, I'm not saying "BAN THE NEW SPYRO LOLOLOLOL" not at all, it's just not my cup of tea (which is weird because you'd think it would be...) but if you like the new Spyro then carrys on playing it, I an't stoppin yeah. Heck you may even like the classic Spyro your self and like the new ones to XD

This stamp was just made to show that I loved the classic games and Spyro's new persona can never the replace the classic Spyro's in my gaming heart. XD

What I really don't like about the classic games is Spyro's personality. He's an arrogant prickwad with a perpetual smug look on his face that I just want to punch off of it >.<

In TLoS he has depth, he develops through the story, and he's so likable because of his bravery, kindness, and willingness to do what's right no matter what. Along with this is the fact that he doesn't laud himself, he just does what he has to do to the best of his ability. Not to mention Spyro x Cynder forever :heart: 

I would rather pretend that the..."S word" doesn't exist.

I miss the exploring too and funny dialogue. To me personally they should have stop making Spyro after Hero's Tale. He's not the same anymore, and lost my interest in him in LoS bc of his different personakity. Like the third game of the series, but I still couldn't call it "fun".
Don't get me started on Skylanders -_-

I grew up with the original three and they are definitely still some of my favorite games ever. <3
As for my opinion of the newer games: TLoS was kinda fun but repetitive; I mostly liked DotD because of the music and because you could fly. Skylanders is good too, but doesn't feel like Spyro. I still like it though.

<----- as you can see im a fan of the newer one but i am not angry with you at all! especialy because i started with the newer ones and therefore I have no "nostalgia"-effekt (as you would call it). the very first one have been bought by my brother, it was "enter the dragonfly". (it´s the 4th i guess). after that i bought "eternal night" (not a new beginning) and i loved the cartoony style and the athmosphere even if i didnt realy cared about the story. also i liked the gameplay of leveling up the elements. (even if earth was a bit too strong with the time-shift). i started with "eternal night" because it was too late for " a new beginning" (i didnt find it anymore in any store). after that i bought " dawn to the dragon" (i was very surprised why the developers changed) and was faced with a totally new style and athmosphere. from the very first second i played it with a friend and the multiplayer was sooo hilarious but sadly the game changed more into a action-adventure instead of staying to the platformer-adventure as it was before. still we played it till the end and it was fun the whole time! then after that i was very surprised that spyro´s new game (with his name in it) wasnt realy HIS game. he was just one character out of many and got such a ugly appereance! he looked more like a little pest now then the old courageous and energetic spyro (he was a bit like me!). but according to the game itself there would never have been a place for a deep character. so the new spyro had to be one of those "i just use skills and look cool" ones, like in beat em up games! and thats what it was! no platformer nor adventure. no! a "hack and slay"-like game was the skylander game. (i didnt bought it by the way. i would never have payed 60 euros!!). just by the two facts that the new game just had spyro´s name in it ,with him as one character out of many, to attract fans and that the gameplay totally changed speaked for itself. spyro was something totally new now. i dont know why people who had once such a great idea didnt continued their work. could it be lazyness? or lustless? or did this people just changed into very avariced people who just wanted to make money? in any of this cases, the result is as clear as it allways is: the game lost it´s hearth! i wondered also what happened to such nice games like crash bandicoot or jax&daxter....

but still there are people who didnt changed their great work after many years! mostly the people from nintendo who allways continue dooing nice zelda and mario games! no one of them ever disappointed me! it is just one thing that make us players feel wen a game wents bad: if it lost it´s hearth! also the people which have done the gothic-series (now risen) still do nice games. or the people from square enix, who allways continue dooing nice rpgs, like "final fantasy:crystal cronicals" -series etc..! i just wanted you to know that there ARE people who never changed in the last 10 years and there will ever be some of them! also it seems a bit that the mmorpg-hype lost it power over the last two years, maybe people start playing more offline now and with friend next to them instead of mutliple people from the whole world just wanting them to show how good and important they are (two of very unimportant things...) ... the main sense of playing is having fun because you just spend time in it because of that. if the reason why you play reffers more to your egoism and to your hunger of attention then it isnt a game anymore at all. then it is a competition of bad character traits!
that´s just the things which came to my mind when i read this.....

I still have the first one on that stamp for PS1. Oh the old days of bad graphics and horrible controls. Who cares though. It was fun and it was probably just as fun as the old Crash Bandicoots. God I love those old things. *goes to play them on my PS3 but is not even sure they will work* x'3 Anyway, love this stamp, love the memories it brings to me. Thank you for this stamp. *clicks fave button* C:

I love the old games so much; the old games as in 1-4 and Season of Ice/Flame. It's always been so hard to decide what my favorte one out of the original trilogy is, but I think it just boils down to Ripto's Rage. The first one had the best nostalgia factor, the second one had the best worlds and music, and the third one had the best gameplay.

I could not agree anymore. The games a mixture of free exploration,with an element of platforming and quick engaging action.And It's all pulled into a trilogy, that has glued itself to the inside of my brain from the first time I picked up, until my very last breath. I'll always tell everyone how it's the first game I ever played and how it will always be my favorite. The game's graphics design and It's mind numbing music that warms my soul to my tail's tip, all the way to my horns.

Forever and always Spyro, classic or not.

Ah Spyro, he has been with me for a long time. I must admit I did like Legend of Spyro, if nothing else I just think the re-imagined world and tone managed to work for Spyro much better then I expected.
Skylanders... I just don't know. I don't want to hate it just because I watch to many of my favorite gaming icon fade and don't any more to fade if there is still something to be salvaged. Still, Skylanders looks like a gimmick that is trying to ride the poor little dragon's faded coattails.

I'm a lighthearted kind of person, so what I liked about the classic games, espcecially the first three for the PS1, was that they were full of colorful, varying worlds with fitting and upbeat music; plus there was the fact that there was so much to collect and do. I played all three LOS games for the PS2, and I felt they were too cynical and dark to be considered Spyro games. And Skylanders is just a cash-cow.

New Crash is fairly good though. Not as good as the originals, but they still retain a lot of the old games' charm.

If you thought LoS Spyro was bad, you should see what they're planning on turning him into.

He doesn't look like Spyro. He's more like a lizard-like monstrosity TRYING to be Spyro.

Oh, trilogy Spyro, I miss you so much. You were perfect, even down to your voice actor. Dx

I love the old voice actors (different one in the first game. Got a new one for the second and third one).
I feel like Elijah Wood was making LoS Spyro sound tired and emo. Good actor, not as good voice actor.

His VA for the second and third games was perfect. Spyro had attitude and snark that made his lines even better. He was just fun to listen to in the cutscenes. All of the voices in the original trilogy were excellent.

The VAs in the LOS series, however, was sub-par. They all sounded tired and half-hearted. Volteer had the benefit of the quick-talking quirk, but they really fell flat. Sparx's constantly changing VAs was obnoxious, too.

David Spade was the best with Sparx, I think.

They were perfect. It fit his personality real well, and I grew to like it very quickly.
Yeah, they all sound like they woke up from drinking too much, and suffering from hangovers. I kinda wish they kept Spark buzzing. He was still getting his own subtitles in the original series lol.
Who is David Spade again?

The first four console Spyro games and the GBA games are some of my favorite games of all time. I don't hate The Legend of Spyro, but like you said, it's repetitive and I miss the collecting aspect. I did finish Dawn of the Dragon two years ago, and while it wasn't bad, to me it cannot compare to the classic Spyro.

I don't think it's a bad stamp and when you don't read the description then it doesn't seem like a bash.
What I think is funny is that LoS fans also like the classic games, while it is really hard to find Classic Spyro fans that likes LoS too. LOL. The Classic Spyro fans is like BASH THE LOS AND SPREAD THE HATE ON INTERNET WOOHOO and LoS is more just drawing their favourite dragon, maybe even the classic one too. I'm just sayin that you're really are acting a bit childish making these... Aaand what's even more childish is that you mostly react on the designs. Pff. I were a big Classic Spyro fan before the LoS, then when I found A New Beginning in a store I was just like: Wow, a Spyro game! Aw, he looks so cute! And awesome! I gotta buy it!!
Then when I got home and played it I was like this: ... IT'S AWESOME!!!!!!!!
The gameplay and the storylines in LoS is really great according to me, and I love the new design of Spyro in them.
I still wonder what makes you wanna bash em so much. I don't like Skylanders design so much, but I don't think the gameplay seems bad, it actually seems kinda fun. If I'll say it myself.

And... Is it change you hate so much? You hate change so you gotta bash it?

I don't hate you, btw, it's not an outraging comment, just calm voice, so y'know.
