If you grew up playing video games in the late 90s, chances are that once the console wars between the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis came to a close, you fell into one of two completely different teams: Team Nintendo 64, or Team PlayStation.
For my money, the original PlayStation was basically the best system money could buy. Not only did it beat the Nintendo 64 to the market by a full year, but the fact that it used discs (which were cheaper to make) meant that EVERY major video game company wanted their games on there.
Sure, we might've missed out on stuff made by Nintendo themselves like Super Mario 64 and Goldeneye 007, but man did we ever get a massive library of great stuff in exchange.
Whether it was breaking boxes in Crash Bandicoot, exploring massive worlds in the Final Fantasy games, sneaking around enemies to stop nuclear weapons in Metal Gear Solid, or even racing in the most realistic cars ever rendered in Gran Turismo, there was something about the PS1 that everyone could get into.
While most of these franchises have continued on to this day, one that's been noticeably absent is Spyro the Dragon, a series of games about a cute little purple dragon with attitude, who had to fly around, collect gems, and battle the forces of evil.
Spyro was originally created by Insomniac Games, who would go on to make the Ratchet and Clank and Resistance series for Sony. While Activision bought the license and kept making games from it for a while, Spyro himself eventually faded from the spotlight, and instead became the mascot for the Skylanders franchise, which were games basically designed just to sell toys.
We've missed Spyro all these years, but it looks like he's due for a comeback! That's right, the original Spyro the Dragon trilogy is being brought back for modern consoles!
