14. Dragon Breed
Series: Dragon Breed
First Appearance: Dragon Breed
Side scrolling shooters were prevalent in the late 80s and early 90s. This unsung game, Dragon Breed, had the hero armed with a crossbow while atop his dragon sidekick.
Don't get it twisted, the dragon didn't just sit around. As expected, it did damage in this game. The intricate movements made the dragon's body a weapon on top of the giant flames the dragon would breathe. Talk about firepower, this dragon was an awesome sidekick.
