One of my favorite games that I ever first played on the PlayStation was that of Spyro The Dragon. I still play it again and again and I think it is one of the most enduring ones that was put out. I know it is not the newest and it doesn’t have the PS3 graphics but it has playability. It can be played again and again and you will always find a reason to play it again.

The premise of the game is easy enough, you are a small dragon, possible a teen dragon, who likes nothing more to do then to chase sheep around and play with butterflies. That is you day until the nefarious Gnasty Gnorc, a dragon hating villain, turns all of the dragons into crystal. The only one to escape is that of Spyro and it is his job to free the other dragons and to collect the gems that have been stolen.

The game is simple to play but very enjoyable. Bright graphics and an ever changing scenery makes for a fun little ride that has many hours of game play. Even when you have finished the game you will still want to come back and play it again. What happened to all of the fun little games that we played like this one that would last for days and not just a few hours. If you love to take your time and enjoy a game then you are going to love this one. Spyro the Dragon will keep kids busy for hours!
