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 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.

"Every day I light a candle for Sega." - easelkillya

 Nintendo 64 Console - Nintendo 64
"N64 is one of the most well-designed consoles in existence. There is no need for a multitap. It's durable and reliable. The AC adaptor is amazing because it's not built into the console, but it's also not at the end of the plug. If only we got the disk drive in North America!" - easelkillya

 Dr. Jekell and Mr. Hyde - NES
"It's really not that bad if you know how to play it. The gameplay is actually pretty innovative. The graphics and music are awesome." - easelkillya

 Wrath of the Black Manta - NES
"Not as good as Ninja Gaiden, but also not as difficult. It's also a fun game to laugh at with a group of friends because of its laughable 80s ridiculousness." - easelkillya
