Sometimes, you turn on a game with zero expectations. But as soon as you hear that first level music, you think to yourself, “Hell yeah, I want to play the rest of this game!” That first impression alone can hook someone into a game and unexpectedly result in a long play session. Sometimes, that one song can even represent a whole series (see the trope Level 1 Music Represents).
Spyro: Season of Ice is the first Spyro game on the GBA. Is it a worthy followup to the legendary PS1 trilogy?
The Sacred Stones is the first Fire Emblem game I played, and it failed to hook me into the series. Did I underestimate it or was it lacking in some qualities?
