Spyro the Dragon
Last game in the series: The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon (DS, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Wii, Xbox 360, 2008)
Technically, the Spyro the Dragon series is still going seeing as Skylanders was a reboot of it, but we’d like a proper new Spyro game to go at.
It’s not out of the realms of possibility – the recent remaster of the original Crash Bandicoot trilogy was hugely successful, showing Activision that there is still a market for traditional old-school platformers. Whether it will actually happen though remains to be seen.
If there was a new Spyro the Dragon game we’d like them to keep it simple and free of any toys-to-life nonsense. All we want is to able to control cute little Spyro throughout a beautifully constructed world full of platforming, puzzles and combat. That would be real good.
Last game in the series: Fable: Anniversary (Xbox 360 & PC, 2014)
Full of amusing British humour, the Fable series has provided us with hours upon hours of engrossing action-RPG adventuring over the years.
A remaster of the original Fable called Fable: Anniversary was the last proper release in the series, with the online co-op focused Fable Legends cancelled in 2016 alongside the closure of Lionhead Studios.
Fable fans can currently play Fable Fortune, a collectable card game that began development before the closure of the studio, but other than that, signs that the series remains alive are scant. Well, until recently, anyway.
In the last few weeks there have been rumblings that Fable 4 is in development, with Forza Horizon devs Playground Games possibly at the helm. We can’t say if the rumours are true or not, but they definitely make sense. I guess we’ll just have to wait and find out for sure.
