Top 5 Spyro the Dragon Levels

Now that I have completed Insomniac’s first Spyro game, courtesy of the Reignited Trilogy, I thought it would be a good time for a nice top 5 list.  Today we’ll be discussing the Duck’s top five levels from Spyro the Dragon!  In general, I was either looking for levels I really enjoyed or had something…

Spyro the Dragon: A Short Review

For the past decade or so, I have been trying to catch up on the major PS1 games that I had missed.  For about $10 per game on Amazon (with a few exceptions), I was able to play all of the old PS1 Final Fantasy games, including a few SNES ones that were remade and…

Crash Bandicoot 2: Top 4 Toughest Levels

Crash Bandicoot: Top 5 Toughest Levels

One of many series to which the Duck was quite a latecomer was Crash Bandicoot.  Being very determined to catch up on as many classic series as possible, I was able to finally play this delightful PS1 platformer thanks to the release of the N.
