Some people will tell you that Dragon's Lair is a great game simply because of what it tried to do. They're right, in a sense. Dragon's Lair did pave the way for more realistic games years after its release, but the Arcade is usually not the best place to try experiments. Games like Pong and Space Invaders, games that were released nearly a decade before Dragon's Lair, were more engaging and gave players a better game. One can appreciate Dragon's Lair for what it wanted to be, but it cannot be praised for what it was.
