If you could revive one dead series, and guarantee at least one good sequel, what would it be? Pic related.

That game would feel really dated. I don't know how you could make a true spyro game and not make it feel 10 years late.

Nintendo still tries to make games faithful to their originals. Can you say that with Sony?

It's literally the same gimmick.

I don't want to revive anything because there is a 99.8% chance the new devs/publishers would fuck it up royally

>>323015068
Please explain yourself you are being very vague.

Spyro is a side character in one game which contains plastic toys

Amiibo are plastic toys, but Nintendo still make games faithful to their originals - like DK TF

What the fuck are you on about?
>>
>>323013702
emulating the first Dino Crisis right now and that would be really nice, though I would prefer a remake over a sequel, pulled off with the same quality as the Resident Evil remake had
>>
>>323015103
>guarantee one good sequel
>>
>>323015207
Exact same gimmick.
The only difference is that while Nintendo does nothing ambitious and never tries to do anything new, other devs step outside their comfort zone to try and do things new and innovative.

I remember when Skylanders was just a concept and everyone was saying that it would never work. Now, not only has it been a huge success, but Nintendo and Disney have copied it.

Yep, just like Zelda, Metroid, Fire Emblem, F-Zero, Star Fox, and Pokemon all are right?

No mainline game since Skyward and stalling for time with waifushit and muosu shit spinoffs, no successor for Prime or any mainline games, pandering to waifufags and easy mode + DLC shit, no game in forever, shitty looking game, and mobile shit

Skylanders did well, but the game has nothing to do with Spyro

Spyro could have been replaced with anything else and it would have been successful either way

So please tell me what it has to do with Spyro

Skylanders is not a Spyro game regardless of its quality.

Spyro was used as a marketing ploy for the first game, but has since been dropped from the title and is not even a central character anymore.
The world and story have nothing to do with Spyro, either OG or Legend of.

Even a fucking HD ground-up remake of the original three with extra content would be good enough.

>all three games combined into one, stories altered to tie together as a single narrative
>this involves more emphasis on world building in the realms (think expanded Breeze Harbor/Zephyr story)
>after YotD a "fourth game" unlocks with a new story taking place in expanded/remixed versions of the old realms

Actually my dream is for a trilogy remake that makes all of the realms a consistent, open world, plus new content.
Something just feels so right about that
Like maybe the NPCs could wander through realms you've cleared and their dialogue can change based on location and where you are in the story or which NPCs you've talked to before

No, but it'd be fucking time for a revival, if shitty point and click adventure games can thrive on nostalgia 3d platformers should too.

Worked well for pic related. This game was Super Mario 64 to a tee, but with slower platforming and the inclusion of combo-based combat.

You know OP, the worst part is all the series I can think of aren't technically dead, they have recentish games, but they still feel like they've been gone for a long time.
>Metroid
>Resident Evil
>Soul Calibur
>>
>>323020587
resident evil is just an action series now, so if you were a fan of the wonky tank controls and weird camera angles its been over a decade

recent metroid was handled so poorly that I think the last true metroid game was prime 3, which came out 9 years ago
