DRAGONS ARE AWESOME.
I owned Spyro 2 and 3 for the PS1 when I was younger and I loved every moment of playing both games. It's a shame his games went downhill after his first three games. Enter the Dragonfly was bugged to hell, A Hero's Tail took the aethetics in an interesting direction but it was a bit too much of a collectathon. And as for how Spyro looks in Skylanders... ugh... WHY?! Nevermind though - the classics are still out there. Way to go, Insomniac Games!
Also, I think I captured the essence of his awesomeness in my own style.
Spyro now belongs to Activision.
