Dragonslayer would be the answer to this question.
Why? Well, let me count the ways.
- Hello, DRAGONS?!?
- It came out during my gaming youth.
- Umm... DRAGONS and DRAGON SLAYING?!?
On second thought, I'm firmly going with Dragonslayer. It edges out Clash of the Titans on several fronts. First, a golden mechanical owl. Secondly, Clash always gets all the love; Vermithrax Pejorative is due a little respect himself. Thirdly, you've got the bungling hero thrown at the dragon right off. First adventure, BAM! DRAGON.
Finally: "ten tons of rapacious reality. No maiden is safe."
Need I say more?
