Ys. The ideal Utopia.

Sorry if there already is a Ys topic I could not find. besides, never hurts to create new topics.

This topic is ALL things Ys. Newcomers and vets alike. Some heard Bone talk this series up for a while. Count me as one of them who is a massive fan of this series.
Some videos on the series. Give you an idea.


Reviews and some history on the series.



I discovered the series through Happy Console Gamer in 2010. So I was late to the party. WHen I ran my YouTube channel I made a Ys video detailing what Ys meant to me as a gamer and as a fan. It changed me entirely. While I kinda collected sorta before Ys. It wasn't until after I played Ys on DS that made me realize. This game has been around since 1986 and I never heard of it. How many more games am I missing? I need to play more. So yes I had close to 200 games then and retro consoles but I wasn't that serious about it. Ys made it serious for me as a collector. It made me live collecting. I have since played multiple versions of the first Ys game. Yes, I have many games in the series and multip versions. I have merch and OSTs and T shirts and all that as well. I have the CE pre-ordered for Ys VIII this September.

I made my own Adol in 3D Dot Game Heroes.

This pic is about 7 years old. Wii no longer tracks your games. (Xenoblade would later have 600 hours into it) Ys was the first I can remember having 300 hours into it. Don't ask me how I put 300 into a 12-hour game. Ok, it's because I kept replaying the game over and over. I did the same when I got it on other systems.

Just for fun.

This thread isn't really about me tho. It's for everything Ys. I was just briefly showing my fandom. Show your love for the ideal Utopia of a series!

So, yeah, I suppose I'm a fan.

My humble Ys collection, so far:

This is the best ARPG series, with Ys Book I & II (PCE version, of course) being the best singular ARPG ever conceived. The whole series crushes it, but Book I & II in particular is staggeringly brilliant. The perfect blend of bump system action, amazing redbook audio music, hand-drawn anime, and a fully-realized mythological world. It never gets old.

Ys IV (PCE) and Ys Origin are my next couple of favorites. The latter should be played by anyone who has a PC.

As far as the future of the series goes, I'm not jazzed about modern games generally speaking, but VIII has me pumped. Is a Vita or 3DS Book I & II too much to ask as well? Come on Falcom.
