My sister first played Spyro 3 when I was about 8 and I always used to watch her play it. That's what made me interested in the Spyro series.

I just saw the original Spyro the Dragon game in a Blockbuster rental store shortly after it was released, and being a lover of dragons/dinosaurs thought 'Oooh, cool!'
Rented it, then got it bought as a gift the next day. Followed him ever since.

My cousins had a Playstation Underground disc with the original demo.
Then one of my other cousins let me play the full game.
He gave it to me later on.
Then I got Ripto's Rage for Christmas, loved it too.
It was actually about four years later that I got YotD.

Then, I got completely addicted to it (kept dreaming about it), so I gave them away.

Five years later, I decided I wanted the games again.
So I tracked the first and third down on Amazon, and got the second at a game store.

Now I have all three plus the music on my iPod to boot.

I don't dream about Spyro anymore, but I still love the games.

I liked dragons at the time. It was during my early poke-fever when I was sleeping with Charizard and Dragonite. I loved dragons, saw a game with a dragon main character. I thought it was unique and never seen I so play it.

The commercial for Spyro when I was 7, when I couldn't get it, I played the Demo on Crash Bandicoot 3 like crazy. Still know the code by heart and I am 19.

I got GtG first because I just saw it in the store, then I got YotD, then I went back to the first one. I got EtD when it came out and played it for two hours and gave up on it. And I got hero's tail when it came out and played it all the way through in about two days and got 100% two days later.

I got LoS games just recently because I decided to catch up on what I missed. I also got SL and beat it in two seconds.

Iwatched my Uncle play it when I was about eight and I had always loved Dragons so I wanted to play it for myself. So, I went out with my mum and rented it from Blockbusters and I had been hooked ever since. I then got the full game for myself a couple of months later smilie.

My brother and I really wanted a PS1, and we got it for christmas, plus one game each. I got Barbie Race and Ride and my brother got Spyro the Dragon. I wanted to try his game and as soon as I did I was quite taken with it, to say the least. And the rest, as they say, is history. smilie

Dawn of the Dragon is the best Spyro game since the original trilogy.

Because I owned a lot of the other Spyro games and wanted to play the original.

Also, old Spyro is a lot like Mario, moreso than most series. :3

Stumbled upon the game(Spyro 2 to be precise) on chance the boxart attracted attention I think plus the fact Dragon! when getting the PS1 console and was a selection of two games(Spyro 2 and Evo's Space Adventures A.k.a A watered down port of Space Station Silicon Valley )me and my sister choose sometime in March 2001 or 2002.

My dad used to be subscribed to OPSM, and would get demo discs for upcoming games in the mail.

One of the discs had a demo of the very first Spyro the Dragon, and being a huge dragon fan when I was a kid, I jumped at that.

And I've been a fan ever since.

We got demo disks and StD was one of them, so my father opted to purchase it for the whole family.

I then played the original at the lovely age of six but I was too scared to go into... any of the levels except for the Artisan's Homeworld and Town Square. I then forced my father into playing it so I could watch and proceeded to get "un-scared" and just played it by myself.

I've now reached the point where I can beat all of the PS1 games and the LoS series 100% in one day per title. I keep losing my Gameboy/DS titles, and I can't be bothered to put up with EtD long enough to finish it. A Hero's Tail has the same exact missing Light Gem every time I play it, so I've simply given up on it. Other than that, I've played and beaten every title there is.

I need to buy a new PS1 memory card on Ebay so I'm not forced to play the original titles in one day - our old one just quit working.

From what I remember StD was simply there, in my house. So I picked it up and played it. And I loved it. Odds are I played it before, but I can't remember it for the life of me.

Back when my brother first got his PlayStation, the first Spyro game popped out of my head and I told my mom to go and buy it for me. When I got out of school, my mom bought the game for me and started playing it after I got back home. One of the best games I've played back in the day. smilie

That was one of my cousins birthday and he get a PlayStation and some games. There was also Spyro: Year of the Dragon. When I saw the cover of the game I knew that would be something good. And I was right! Cousin started to play it and this game was so cool.
