Been re-discovering the game recently, and was talking to someone about it for a bit too XD. I freaking loved the classic Spyro games to bits, got each one on launch day as a kid and i actually remember distinctly hearing two older boys going into the store as i left (I was still a kid at the time), one said to the other "Thats the game i really want to get" and they were considerably older, probably my current age or a bit younger XD buying a cutesey Dragon game. It was funny at the time because the older boys would usually be into the "Cool" games, or at least don't openly admit to liking anything but the "Cool" games.
Anyway, though i still got the originals, i've been unable to play them since i've stored my psx and ps2 away. Now however, they've all been released on psn, i bought all 3 and have really missed playing them XD I have to say, the skateboarding minigames in the third game is probably my favorite part aside from boss fights and chasing thieves
. (I still remembered the code to make Spyro change colours Pause and input ^ < v > ^  r1 r2 l1 l2 ^ > v < ^ then the button for the colour you want or ^ and v)
I believe the rights to Spyro actually belongs to Activision right now? But props to Insomniac for the original creation and design.
