Unlike my husband I grew up playing video games. Back in the day there was no “save” feature so my sister and I would play, turn off the TV, but leave the gaming system on so that we could come back to where we left off. Our days were filled of Mario Brothers, Q-Bert, and Frogger.
So when my oldest son was old enough to start playing video games with me I promptly went out and bought our first Playstation. One of the games I purchased for us to play was Spyro. At the time my son was in first grade and I was amazed at his gaming skills. He seemed to remember where everything was and was able to run and fly Spyro through the game with ease.
When I heard there was a newly released Spyro game called “Spyro Reignited Trilogy” I knew we had to get it even if for old memory purposes. It turned out I was not the only one, my son was excited to play the game and he too remembers it as the time when he and mom would play games together. He may be 21 years old but he is still a huge video game and Sypro fan.
He called me up after playing the game for a while and said it was so much fun. He played for hours beating levels and getting through everything.
