Since Spyro Reignited came out, I have been indulged in a very strong sense of nostalgia.

Though I fully played only A New Beginning and The Eternal Night from The Legend of Spyro trilogy (and their mobile versions), these games made a huge impression on me back then. Well of course, I was so glad that I COULD PLAY AS A DRAGON, DAMMIT! So sad that after some time the Eternal Night disk simply stopped working... for all eternity. Ironic. And it's bad that I never had a chance to play Dawn of the Dragon.

The old, classic Spyro, however, seemed to me too simple, bright and cartoony. Furthermore, most of the characters in Reignited are very anthro/furry-looking, which REALLY dissapoints me. So I am a supporter of a more elaborate, dark and intense one, TLoS. (Seriously, in Reignited, Spyro and the Crystal Dragon look nice, but... why then the other dragons are leg day skipped bipeds?). Welp, that's just my opinion. I also like TLoS more due to Cynder's first appearance. She inspired me a lot.

...But looks like I made her too scary. Hahah. So... I think some Spyro fanart is worthy of being in my gallery!

This is amazing! TLoS is an amazing trilogy. I, too, am upset I never got to play Dawn of the Dragon. I'd buy it offline but it's so overpriced nowadays...

RavenCorona responds:

Thank you! I'm happy to know that I'm not the only one who likes TLoS ^^
Oh, recently I managed to get DotD and play it with a friend. It was a pretty nice experience and I'm glad that I finally finished this trilogy for now. I wanted to draw something in honor of this too, but I already have lots of other unfinished ideas as well...
It's a pity that the game was short, though.
