Re: Good thing or bad?

Movie cancelled = GREAT
It would ruin Spyro forever, most certainly.

And a new game... I dunno. I wanna have it for sure, but I really don't know what will be done. IMO, I think they won't do anything with Spyro anymore and just let him pass away. Not that I like that...

Re: Good thing or bad?

Hmmm. I don't think Spyro needs to die, rly.
He just needs to be revived in a good way. EtD was way worse than YotD, but if they would continue with something like that it'd be better imo than another silly LoS. All those new chars were fatal. I want Avalar back.

I'm hoping for Spyro to continue-it's such a great idea, but needs more support from its owners than it currently has.

No, it would not. The fans are doing fine ruining the fandom without assistance from the creators.

Why do I get the feeling that the movie was cancelled cause old skool Spyro fans just woulden't stop whining and complaining?

If that honestly is the case then; Thanks old skool Spyro fans for ruining it for those who actually WANTED to see the movie.


The LoS series did NOT ruin the fandom. Nor would a Spyro movie ruin it. The fans are doing that themselves by their constant whining and complaining about small, idiotic things. It's the Sonic fandom all over again.

Uh, no it wasn't. Get your facts straight before you insult people. Maybe if there weren't so many LoS fantards going on about how sexy Cynder is and throwing a rampage if you don't like her or LoS, we wouldn't mind so much.

Seriously, some guy sent me a message saying that he'd kill me if no more Spyro games game out. That's how retarded some fans are.

For your information, the merge between Activision and Blizzard caused some problems and they ran out of funding.

You've confused me with someone who gives a *bleep*.

Fair enough. People who think a dragon is sexy are idiots...But old skool fans are no better....Always complaining about how bad LoS is and how it destroyed the fandom. No..No no no no NO...FANS are destroying the fandom.

I'm complaining about your complaining...I'm fed up with it...If you don't like the new games, fair enough...Just don't go saying stupid things like 'LoS is destroying the fandom' because it isn't....Fans are doing that all by themselvers with their idiotic fan wars...I'm just the middle party that wants everyone from both sides to shut up and quit b*****g.

Re: Good thing or bad?

LoS is destroying the fandom, though.

Trust me, I've been with this fandom since before LoS came out. There weren't always so many fantards. Plus, if it hadn't come out in the first place, there wouldn't be all the arguing and fandom wars you hate so much. Regardless of how you feel about the quality of the games, it's true that the release of the LoS games has not helped the fandom in any way.

Also, we have the right to complain if we want to, just like you do. The "old skool" fans you're complaining about don't like the direction the series is going, and they want to do something about it. How are the developers supposed to know what the fans want if the ones who are unhappy don't say anything? You might want to keep it going in the current direction, but what makes your opinion more worthwhile or valid than anyone else's? Please stop being belligerent and trying to silence people who don't agree with you.

Re: Good thing or bad?

Exsacly and game girl 2007

IT IS THE FANTARDS THAT KILLED SPYRO

Serria took there idear and put theminto DOTd to make them happy, and what was DOTD? an abomination to a majority of people or to others just..."Mah..." that just shows when they used fandom it flopped when they did what they wanted it was a good game.

And also do you see uncharted Fandom? or God of war fandom? I see fanart and stuff with is fine but what dose my head in (and quite alot of folks heads in) is the story fandom of cynder killing ember or how ember trys it onwith spyro so he burnt her ECT ECT and the art of spyro and cynder having a snog We don't wan't to see that stuff but what makes it worse is it was written by a 10 year old.

And like stated befor the 10 year olds hate you if you think one vertion of cynder sucked EG i liked evil and emo cynder bu i hate bratty DOTD cynder...suddenly i hated cynder all together according to them. Thats why i realy don't give a poop about spyro anymore because the fantards are just not worth it IMO that and i have better games to get.

No. It is NOT destroying the fandom. Whining and demanding FANS are. THEY are the ones who are ruining the fandom for me. It's because of the fans that I'm just about ready to quit being a Sonic fangirl! Why? Because we get a bad repuation for it! and now the same is being done to the Spyro fandom! The whole old vs new thing is STUPID AND PATHETIC!

Yes, you do have the right to complain. But there lies the problem. You don't even think about the people who DO like the LoS series. The ones who like the LoS series also like the old series. Yet we get insulted for this.

I'm on NO side. I love both series! Why? Because it's Spyro! Thats why!

If you don't like LoS, fair enough. No one is forcing you to like it. Just don't ruin it for those who DO like it.

To say the LoS series is destroying the fandom is one of the most stupidest things I have ever heard. People seriously need to grow up and get a life!

To quote Zero Punctuation;

Fans are useless, complaining, whining dips***s who will never EVER be thankful for everything that is given to them.

Re: Good thing or bad?

First of all, you need to calm down. You're getting angry for no reason, and it's not helping your cause or your fandom's reputation.

But what brought the fantards here in the first place? LoS did. What made people complain? LoS did. People whine and complain because they don't like the games, and not without good reason.

Yes, you do have the right to complain. But there lies the problem. You don't even think about the people who DO like the LoS series. The ones who like the LoS series also like the old series. Yet we get insulted for this.

I'm not sure I understand you. Who is insulting you for liking LoS? All I ever see on this forum are criticisms of the games themselves, not personal attacks. If you're getting insulted by members of this forum for liking LoS, report them and I'll have a word with them. Otherwise, don't take it personally if someone doesn't like a game you like and decides to criticize it. That's what fantards do.

I'm on NO side. I love both series! Why? Because it's Spyro! Thats why!

Good for you, but for me and many others, this isn't a good enough reason. Spyro isn't the same at all, and I'm not going to blindly follow wherever it goes just because the titular character happens to be the same. It's simply not logical to me to like a game just because it happens to be called "Spyro."
No matter how many times I've heard this argument, I cannot understand why people don't get this. Old and new Spyro have nothing in common but the fact that the main character is a purple dragon named Spyro who has a friend dragonfly named Sparx.

If you don't like LoS, fair enough. No one is forcing you to like it. Just don't ruin it for those who DO like it.

So we can dislike it, but we just can't say anything about disliking it because that will ruin it for you? Sounds like you need to learn to keep other people's personal opinions in perspective and not let them affect your own. No one is forcing you to dislike LoS any more than old fans are being forced to like LoS.

How are old Spyro fans ruining anything? If you don't like their complaints, simply don't listen to them. Again, they're not attacking you personally, and it's not like they're complaining without good reason.

To say the LoS series is destroying the fandom is one of the most stupidest things I have ever heard. People seriously need to grow up and get a life!

neutral

Would you mind explaining how the fact that someone thinks differently than you do makes that person "need to grow up and get a life"?

And, ironically enough, here we get the insults, the very thing you're complaining about, from you. You'll want to calm down if you want anyone to take you halfway seriously.

It's overzealous, baseless flames like this that are helping give the LoS fans a bad name. LoS fans are known to many as immature fantards who will defend their fandoms like their lives depend on it and will flame you if you so much as hint that you dislike something about it. And it's sad, because I know quite a few LoS fans who are "sane" and accepting of other people's opinions.

It's just a game series; there is no need to get so worked up and defensive about it. I believe in this case it is you who needs to grow up and get a life. People's opinions about Spyro aren't the end of the world.

To quote Zero Punctuation;

Fans are useless, complaining, whining dips***s who will never EVER be thankful for everything that is given to them.

Er... no.

I am thankful for the pre-LoS Spyro games, and so are many other fans. We just happen to not like the particular direction the LoS games brought the series in; it doesn't mean we won't be happy with anything, as evidenced by the fact that we have liked Spyro games before LoS.

I find it hilarious how you call Classic Spyro supporters/Legend of Spyro haters 'insulting' yet you're the one ranting and raving, not us.

You're right to an extent; despite the Legend of Spyro's overused, cliche plot, wet characters and repetetive gameplay, it's the fans who are destroying the fandom.

And you are the perfect example of a Legend of Spyro fantard.

No, overuse of the franchise is killing the fandom. If they didn't make so many classic Spyro games then LoS wouldn't exist.

That is absolutely true, but then again if people didn't lose the plot over simple things, such as which series is best. Here is the truth, Spyro is a mediocre franchise, it never made it to the Top Tens of any list, no nominations for Game of the Year, but then again I don't think Final Fantasy did either...But the point is people often forget that it is a game, only a game, games are meant to be fun but some people often take these things so seriously and I'm not just talking about the LoS fans here...

Well it seems the complaints have fallen on deaf ears, but maybe they might read some of these complaints and start making an effort, but then again we don't know what direction they are going to take, it's best we just wait. Also I agree, if people don't agree with you then just leave it doesn't help the situation(this comment was not directed at you Stormy, just so you know. wink ).

You do sort of have a point there, but I'm not sure how it disproves what I was saying - if they had stopped when they should have, there wouldn't be a LoS to bring in all the fantards in that ruined the fandom.

That is absolutely true, but then again if people didn't lose the plot over simple things, such as which series is best.

Exactly.... And yes, there are some original fans who take it to seriously as well.... Like you said, people  just need to calm down and put it into perspective - it's just a kids' video game series about a purple dragon, not srs bsns.

Well it seems the complaints have fallen on deaf ears, but maybe they might read some of these complaints and start making an effort, but then again we don't know what direction they are going to take, it's best we just wait. Also I agree, if people don't agree with you then just leave it doesn't help the situation(this comment was not directed at you Stormy, just so you know.  wink ).

Well, there's nothing wrong with debating it, just as long as no one gets away and start flaming. Well thought out arguments that aren't inspired by rage and actually make sense are usually a nice bonus, too. tongue

I know I'm interested to see what the new direction will be, but if it's more stuff I don't like, then hey, whatever. It's just Spyro.

Why? Because the poster looked so awfully bad, and (Almost) everyone never heard of "Velvet Octopus" ?

In my opinion, it would've been a great idea. Spyro is a high ranked game character that's pretty popular indeed. They already made various movies of games.
Dragon Ball Z, Tomb Raider..I heard there's even coming a Halo Movie..

But yes, I agree. The poster was just an amateur copy of the DOTD model so they could've at least put a little more 'effort' in it. But still..

oh well. Now this is over, am hoping for a new game anyways.

Re: Good thing or bad?

I don't think Spyro's really that popular anymore, honestly.

If you mention Spyro to most people, they don't think of LoS; they think of the old games they used to play when they were kids.
