    I decided earlier that I was going to re-play Spyro the Dragon from beginning to end, no breaks, no saves. And time myself on how long it took me to do it.

    So:

    Game Start 11:40pm - Artisan Home
    Peace Keepers at 12:06am
    Magic Crafters at 12:38am
    Beast Makers at 1:16am
    Dream Weavers at 1:56am
    Gnasty's World at 2:40am

    Gnasty Gnorc at 2:55am
    Gnasty Gnorc defeated at 2:59am

    Ruling was that can't skip the dragons, or any other animations. Had to get everything on all levels before moving onto the next level/world.

    So then I have a few stats behind it that I scrawled down as I went:

    1st Death at Alpine Ridge, Magic Crafters - Timed the flight wrong and crashed into a barrier.
    2nd Death at Tree Tops, Beast Makers - Lost supercharge speed at the end of a ramp.
    3rd Death at Twilight Harbour, Gnasty's World - Gunned down by an armed frog guard.

    12:51am reached 50% game complete.

    Longest time spent on a level: Crystal Flight, Magic Crafters. Took me the 3rd attempt, I kept doing the sequence wrong.
    Wild Flight, Beast Makers. 2nd attempt - missed a boat.
    Icy Flight, Dream Weavers. 2nd attempt - missed a load of chests.

    And then unfortunately after defeating Gnasty Gnorc, instead of the game running the ending animation. It froze :(

    But to be fair, the game is from 1998 and during gameplay a lot of music on the level crackles, sk-sk-skips and cuts out.

    So the final level of Gnasty's Loot I haven't done because of that, but luckily I have it saved on a card so I can just do that level through a save and time it later. But it wouldn't take much more than like 20mins tops.

    So that's my wonderful evening, sat and played that.

    I actually did the exact same thing a last summer, with the first three Spyro games :D (I took a break between them though). It wasn't actually intentional though |: I didn't realize I could save PS1 games on my PS3, and played through them in this manner so that other people in the apartment wouldn't turn it off and lose my progress.

    Ah I remember doing this once on a Saturday, it's a lot of fun and a really great game. I always got stuck at Haunted Towers trying to get to the secret area without dying.

    Are you thinking of a different game?

    @Don Relentless

    Its defo that game, Super Mario Bros on NES. And I don't get it either, I've seen footage of it online of the game being completed at world 8. But our one goes beyond world 8, furthest I've been on it is world 12 like I say. And there's 4 stages on each one.

    First world, World 1-1 is like on the top thing, and then you go into the castle at the end. Then World 1-2 he goes into a drain thing and your in a underground world. Then its World 1-3 which I can't quite remember whats on it, it might be that weird one with the tree-like things. And then 1-4 is Bowser.

    And I've done it with and without the shortcuts. Like World 1-2 you go beyond the drain back to the top and go past and theres a secret warp room with drains leading to World 2, 3 and 4. I think world 4 is the one with that turtle on the cloud that throws spiney things at you.

    And then there's like a blacklight world that's pretty fun, and an underwater one.

    But seriously, I have no idea why our copy of the game goes beyond world 8 and doesn't end on world 8. I'll even record it sometime (somehow other than the vcr) and prove that it goes beyond world 8.

    Took me about half a day for each game to complete to 100%.
    Enjoy all three. :)
