All Spyro Games in Order

If you're a fan of both purple dragons and games from the 2000s, we have some good news for you. Here is every Spyro game in order.

Spyro is a beloved game franchise preserved not only by a dedicated base of fans but by an ironclad gameplay formula that charmed kids and adults for years. The first game in the series came out in 1998, by Insomniac Games for the PlayStation, and it was received favorably by an eager audience. The 90s were an iconic era for gaming, and Spyro was a critical part of that era.

In the transition from cartridge to CD, from one system to another more robust machines sparked life into the cartoonish mascots that built some of the best history within platforming and children’s gaming. Despite the very high ups and the icon-bruising lows, Spyro remains a representation of an earlier time, back when console and mascot wars were a pair of hot topics that skipped along the same industry pathway.

Why would you like Spyro in the modern age? There are plenty of platformers to play with colorful characters out there, but if you want to begin as close as you can to the genesis of the genre, Spyro is a great stop to consider. Along with Crash Bandicoot, Spyro represented the PlayStation side of the game during the highs of the ’90’s’90s and early 2000s. What’s more, is that Spyro was not limited in his heyday to the PlayStation console.

A brief, similarly flying trilogy also made a pretty big impact on the Gameboy Advance and Nintendo DS. So if platforming in the 3D landscape isn’t your thing, try the 2D version of Spyro as an experience.
