Listen, Insomniac AREN'T QUITTERS. They're a small company who wanted to make a game series, and like Twilight said, they sold Spyro o they could get new equipment to work on R&C. I'M NOT ARGUING ANYMORE, OKAY? INSOMNIAC HAS A REASON FOR DUMPING SPYRO. VU IS RAPING THE SPYRO CANON. DO NOT ARGUE WITH ME ANYMORE, OKAY?! ANYONE WHO HATES SPYRO, OR THE INSOMNIAC SPYRO CAN GO TO HELL FOR ALL I CARE. >_<

Insomniac got rid of Spyro because it was getting repetative and they said Spyro was at the end of his life. They went on to better things with R&C. And I'm not saying Spyro is bad, far from it! But he just doesn't have the "umph" like he did before... the novelty wore off i guess. I can't really explain it... i adore Spyro himself but not the games... if ya get me... gah!

Anyway, i voted NEVER D: VU have set THEIR own cannon personalities for the characters and they're hardly gonna change em for some moaning teens on a board. The gameplay is pretty fine (excluding ETD) and the controls were good in AHT it's just the new cannon personalities that throw people -_-

yeah we know what ya think

anyway it would appear Spyro isnt dead I mean he's on mobile phones on the DS in an RPG ((all the big charas get that kinda thing look at Mario and Sonic))

Spyro was repetitive because Insomniac never tryed to change much

at leas tya can say VU has some guts

But can't we say already that Spyro's changed a little TOO much? I mean, he was a platformer! You want an RPG, play Pokémon, Final Fantasy, anything! Heck ,what's next? Spyro becoming an FPS? Seriously.

*hearty chuckle*
Now that wouldn't that be a sight!

But, seriously.
Try as they might, the VU games simply will never have the charm of the first trilogy. Even if VU diverted all its vast treasury into the Spyro franchise, levelling the new games with the old ones in quality, they would lack the" X factor" that we old farts hold so dearly.

And Insoniac are not "quitters". I am not sure, but I believe that VU always actually "owned" Spyro, so when Insomniac decided to move on, VU was free to do what they wanted with the franchise.

And, if you go to their website, you'll find that Insomniac have a policy of only developing ONE game at a time. "Quality over quanity" they say, and I firmly believe it works. As such, they would never have developed both Spyro and R&C at once, no matter what.

They had also planned on devloping a Spyro "spin-off" sort of game (ie. a cart racer), but Naughty Dog "beat them to it", and they didn't want to look like they were copying ideas.

In short, to call Insomniac "quitters" is a grave misjudgement of their desicions, policies and of the company as a whole.

Half way through the U bend huh? Isnt that Moaning Myrtle's usual position? Moving on... I agree. Though I STILL think Insomniac shouldnt have dumped the guy... Now Insomniac is just cruel...

In my oppinion if they make it good then go ahead I'll be all for it ((although it'll have to be a spinoff with Hunter or Agent 9))

but I like the Spyro RPG it works well

and being a platformer didnt stop a SOnic chara from making an action shooter game ((shadow the hedgehog)) mario form making Golf Cat Racing Tennis Partys etc etc etc

To me this is just a sign Spyros taking his place among the Marios and Sonics of gaming ((you know in fanfics I frequently crossover Spyro and Sonic but not really Spyro and Crash))

But that's the exact point. Shadow the Hedgehog diverts so far from the Sonic series that it's barely Sonic anymore. Heck, all of the voice actors were replaced, and they had no idea.

In fact, the Sonic series is becoming what the Spyro series has. The people who made and developed the first games were bought out and then became part of an empire that devoted a small fraction of their activity to gaming. SEGASammy Holdings is just like Vivendi Universal is: A media conglomerate which wants more for its won series than that of its previous developers.

And Mario with the Mario Party stuff... well, that's just because Shigeru Miyamoto does it all. If we didn't have Link, it'd most likey be Mario with a sword saving Peach from Bowser!

But away from that...

Well to Jehousha I agree and wont stop bein a fan

and to the quoted line

personally I like the idea behing Shadow the hedgehog ((heck form the commercials you decide to be good or evil and can use guns and vehicles so that makes it bloody awsome more varaity and heck maybe it'll be a streight up action game IE no moving platforms that'll be new and intresting with roads winging paths and enemy hordes))

but like I said before VU at leastr in my mind is almost going to overtake Insomniac

I think that the new Spyro game for the DS sounds extremely cool, what with the RPG element and everything but unfortunately as I’ll never b getting a DS I
‘m never going to have the pleasure of playing it. sad still, I can hope.

I’d like to see more games on the PS2, though with hew PS3 due any time now I think it may stop. I’d like one more Spyro game to hopefully correct the mistakes of the past PS2 Spyro’s.

A racing or fighting game would be a logical step and a lot of videogames go on to make that type of game after a platform series.

Spyro has changed too much to hold it's original greatness. Like with Jak and Daxter. Heh heh. No. Cute, mute Jak was so much different than pushy, mean, snarling beast-man-Jak. Just like karate fighting, magic-face, odd-voiced Spyro won't ever get on the same level as cute, massive-eyed, slightly curious but always the typical "little boy" Spyro. He'll have his own level to live up too, but he probably won't ever return to what he was in the past. At least not after all this change and mutation.
