The 90’s saw the evolution of games that went from an old-school 2D style to a 3D world that allowed us to explore games like never before. People have talked in detail about Super Mario 64’s incredible impact in gaming, which led to the rise of 3D platformers. The Playstation 1 got many of these, and two in particular we synonymous with our childhoods were Crash and Spyro. Both of these are pretty relevant today thanks to recent Trilogy collections. On this episode we’ll be talking about Spyro the Dragon from the Reignited Trilogy, and answering the question: Was this classic game worth remastering or remaking?
