Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly.

Because of everything.

I do not care about the glitches, this wasn't my first Spyro game (I have been around since the obscure pre-release demos), but this game was a very big part of my childhood.

I loves it. ^_^

Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer

Was my first Spyro game, and I still love it. I would say 1-3 all are great, 2 wins just because of the memories.

W-wow. If your saying that non sarcastically/ non ironically, I appreciate you a whole lot. That game gets a whole lot of unneeded hate and i enjoy it a bunch as well.

As for me, I can specify just one single Spyro game, I play the first four as one cohesive experience and enjoy them so much.
If I had to, it'd be Spyro 2

I love the original ps1 trilogy. My first game for ps1 was Spyro 2 gateway to glimmer and i love all the levels of the game. My favourite levels are Zephyr And Fracture Hills but all the levels are beautiful.

Spyro 1 bayyybeeee. My favorite 3D platformer in general. As much as I love 2 and it floors 1 visually, 1 will always have the faster levels and pacing, and none of the minigames I want to avoid at times in 2 and mostly dislike in 3. 1 is just a pure platforming experience where every level is memorable to play, and a perfectly short and sweet one at that; honestly sort of overlooked for how great it still is. 2 improved in many ways and it's very very close between the two... But 1 will always be my answer because 2's minigames lead to moments I want to skip when recompleting the game. And yet 1 is my go-to "game to 100% quickly" when I want to get through an afternoon. I'm sure there are less fun moments but nothing I dislike or don't want to replay comes to mind unlike certain minigames that aren't interesting or Crystal Popcorn which I permanently hold a vendetta against (even though I actually don't find it that hard anymore) in 2.

Since everyone has answered classic games so far though I'm going to throw in another opinion and say that behind Spyro 1 and 2, TEN on GBA is my favorite. Thoroughly fun and feels quite good to play, also gorgeous for a GBA title with very striking palettes. Best thing to some from the Legend trilogy (or post-Insomniac at all imo, maybe unless you count Skylanders which I squarely consider its own series).

My favourite levels of Spyro 1 are wizard peak and haunted towers. I had some problems in tree tops ahah
Drawdler Yellow Sparx Gems: 1693
#10 Posted: 11:15:22 11/01/2018
Haunted Towers is one of my favorites too!! I love when you figure out how to reach that hidden room by jumping over there with the Supercharge, it's such a cool way they integrated a puzzle with it. It's hard for me to pick of more favorites though as I like pretty much every level.

... Hm actually thinking back on it Toasty is sort of bland, I guess it didn't pop to mind because it's a pretty short level.

Also, I think Spyro 1 still has the best music in a Spyro game. I like 2's a lot and more ambient themes were nice (especially in the homeworlds; I'll be honest, 2's homeworlds also floor 1's), though pretty much every song in 1 I could jam to and really get into while playing the game.

Legend of Spyro: Eternal Night. I only watched the classics so I can't be a good judge of those, and as much fun as I had with A Hero's Tail, I don't feel like it aged as well. Better small fun with only acceptable gameplay and an entertaining story than having to sit through highs and lows all the time, sometimes.

I'm a bit split. As far as control and gameplay go, my favorite is Ripto's Rage. Spyro hands down controls the best here. Not to mention the amazing skips and sequence breaking you can do in that game (double jump glitch hyyyyyype). It's also probably got my favorite homeworlds. But I'm iffy on the soundtrack. Year of the Dragon is definitely my favorite soundtrack in the series. And I think the original has the bet atmosphere, if that makes sense. As in, it feels the most like an epic adventure, as opposed to a bunch of random worlds thrown together with no coherent order to them. <.<

It has to be one out of the original trilogy. I have to say Year of the Dragon with Spyro the Dragon and Gateway to Glimmer sharing the silver medal. It still has most versatile gameplay experience out of any Spyro game. It still has the most versatile gameplay out of those three and longer gameplay and more content. Gateway to Glimmer would be easy winner if it had more levels. Spyro the Dragon is relatively short game which is of course due to its first-of-the-series nature more than understandable. And of course Spyro the Dragon has the best soundtrack and atmosphere but it feels quite raw and therefore out of top competition. But my pick is still Year of the Dragon even though it's gameplay is not that fluid and has some uninteresting levels.

Spyro:Year Of The Dragon for me. Beautiful levels, intresting characters, fun bosses, amazing OST(as usual). Another big reason is because it was the first game I ever played so it holds a special place in my heart. My 2nd favourite one is Spyro 1.

Hard to choose between Gateway to Glimmer and Year of the Dragon.
The former wins because of nostalgia and its amazing atmospheres and soundtrack, but I overall “objectively” prefer the latter.

The first game obviously holds a special place in my heart, and probably still has the best level design of the Classic Trilogy, but its sequels are simply better in all its other aspects, in my opinion.

Attack of the Rhynocs is an honorable mention as far as mobile games go, and Hero’s Tail is my favorite of the non-Insomniac era.

Spyro 2, because I generally enjoy pretty much all of the orb challenges that the game has to offer, and I really like how the home worlds are themed, I also like that Spyro interacts with Ripto, whereas in 3, he never has screen time with the Sorceress, I like how you get a new ability for every home world, and I enjoy doing a little back tracking. In Spyro 3, I don't really like the extra characters, I just find that they slow down the gameplay too much, especially Bentley, and Agent 9. Sheila is probably the most to enjoyable to play as.

I know I made a lot of comparisons between Spyro 2 and 3, but I feel these two are pretty similar compared to the first one. Now I really enjoy the first one, but it lacks in decent bosses, they pretty much feel like ordinary levels, and the only one that feels like a boss is Metalhead in my opinion.

The one thing I do like about Spyro 3 is that you already have your abilities at the start, so at least you don't have to unlock them again.

MY TOP 5 SPYRO GAMES:

1. Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer (1999) (Insomniac Games/Sony/Universal)
2. Spyro the Dragon (1998) (Insomniac Games/Sony/Universal)
3. Spyro: Year of the Dragon (2000) (Insomniac Games/Sony/Universal)
4. Spyro: A Hero's Tail (2004) (PS2) (Eurocom/Sierra/Vivendi Universal)
5. Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly (2002) (PS2) (Equinoxe Digital Entertainment with Check Six/Universal)

Spyro: A Hero's Tail and the original Spyro the Dragon.

The former because it was my first Spyro game and I've been playing it for years and I love every play through, and the latter because it's beautifully simple, and has the best (IMO) soundtrack.

A tie between Ripto's Rage! and Year of the Dragon. They're both really fun, they have great atmosphere and beautiful worlds, quirky characters, awesome voice acting, and, of course, Stewart Copeland's score is outstanding. Year of the Dragon also has skateboarding, and both games feature Tom Kenny as Spyro, my favorite voice for the character.

Yes, I am definitely being 100% serious. I really love that game, and it is very important to me. ^_^

I agree, people hate on it too much. There's plenty of shorter/more glitched out video games. I'm really happy to see someone else who enjoys the game on here as well!

I think that every level of Spyro 4 is a remind of a preovious level of the other games of Spyro. For example luau island is a remind of idol springs and monkey monastery is a remind of the level colossus.

This question is too hard lol. I'm gonna have to say The Eternal Night, but I also really love A New Beginning, Gateway to Glimmer and A Hero's Tail. I just love the atmosphere in The Eternal Night and being able to play as Dark Spyro is pretty awesome. Also the first two Legend of Spyro games have my favourite Spyro artstyle so that's a plus too!

For classics,Spyro 2,even if I have fond memories of ETD being my first Spyro game on the Gamecube,my copy was not really glitchy,I had to force the glitches to happen because otherwise it played just fine,A Hero Tail on the other side glitched far more(the version I have),for Legend,it’s TEN(ps2 version),I have a fondness for the Krome era so DOTD was a bit disappointing.Skylanders,well only played and own Giants....and don’t really like the merchandise driven concept of it but do like the idea of characters with different abilities,elements and that no same elements will play the exact same,still would prefer a menu where you unlock them by in game means.
