#6. Spyro Reignited Trilogy

Maybe it’s because of the long association with the Nintendo brand; perhaps it’s because they are often plentiful on Nintendo consoles while rare on other platforms. Platformers, be it 2D or 3D, always feel more at home on a Nintendo console than anywhere else, even if the series is more strongly linked to other consoles in its history.

The Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a perfect example of this. The first three games are great but reminiscent of the early PlayStation era where it was clear they felt they needed a kid-friendly platformer series to sell the console. The minute Sony realized that wasn’t the case, those types of games became few and far between. So with the Nintendo Switch being home to many great platforming titles when a classic collection gets released, it just feels like the best place for it is the Nintendo Switch.

There’s undoubtedly some appeal in playing older games in HD on a modern TV to be sure, but honestly, it’s more magical to suddenly have these games playable away from the TV and wherever you want when that wasn’t the case when you originally played them back in the day.

The Nintendo Switch feels like the best place to play platformers, especially remade classic ones and that’s why it will be the best place to play Spyro Reignited Trilogy when it comes to the system on September 3.
