I love Spyro!

This is an example of how to utilize a console's capabilities. The PS1 came along in the awkward period where 3D wasn't really super awesome yet. That's why games like Resident Evil have aged so poorly. Games that have a more comic-y style, like this one, went down much better and are still presentable. Fun game. Nice controls, cute hero.

This game is purest fun in your PS1. The music is unforgettable and the levels so awesome to play. I still remember just pouring hours into this game and its sequels. Plus, it has the single best example of a post-game level: you go into your fallen enemy's treasure horde and loot the place. And you do it flying! Seriously, get this game.

One of my first, and most favorite PS1 games


just downloaded this on psn, a beautiful yet simple adventure platformer, yes its easy, but very well made and a jot to play.

One of the best Ps1 games or should I say one of the best games I have ever played... Spyro the Dragon with it's awsome soundtrack composed by Adam Copeland and it's unique gameplay style brings out the the little dragon within us. You set off to an adventure to find Gnasty Gnorc (Realy cool name) who has turned all dragons in to crystals! Also you will have to hunt down those annoying thieves that just love eggs so much... I think they want to make dragon omlettes.

Spyro 2 and 3 might be class acts on the PS1, but Spyro 1 has a style of its own that makes it a real gem. The high-fantasy setting, combined with the great soundtrack and the exceptional gameplay make this one an essential title for any PS1 owner. I think what makes this game really shine is the level and art design. It's so fantastical and there's nothing quite like the atmosphere it produces, not even its sequels come close. Perfect for kids and adults alike.

Too bad Activision owns Spyro since I would love to see another real Spyro game.

 Megaman 8 - PlayStation
"The worst game in the original series. Anime cutscenes, a CD soundtrack, and 32-bit colorful graphics cannot save this game from it's poor game play." - sherberttcat

 SegaNet Dreamcast Keyboard - Sega Dreamcast
"It's good for playing typing of the dead" - silvereyex7

 NHL 09 - PlayStation 3
"It's hockey, and much like beer, Hockey is good. That said this game is fluid, and makes madden look like a bitch. That said, the audio comentary is stale(Thorne and Clement is a bit tired). The AI in "Be a Pro mode" is kinda panfaced. Other than that, a solid game for any hockey fan." - oyabungaijin

 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters - Sega Genesis
"I thought I was just bad at this game so I stopped playing it after about 10 minutes. I totally agree about Michael Bay movies sucking. Even with all the special effects I just wanted Transformers to end. But anyway, I'll give this game 2 stars for being the turtles." - grandmasterp

 Nintendo 64 Console - Nintendo 64
"at the moment the only console i play ... not really my choice but i dont regret it" - chukksatyriasis
