    I just recently played my first YS game (which was Oath In Felghana for PSP) and I'm absolutely amazed at how incredible the game YS ( :M )

    i really had no hope for the JRPG genre. I thought that we would be stuck forever with good for nothing stories and trashy spam X to win gameplay.

    Oath In Felghana throws this concept in the garbage. Of course, the story is absolute trash (like in every JRPG), but the gameplay is one of the best I've seen recently. It's responsive, it's fast, and most of all, it's brutal.

    The 2 final bosses of the game made me rage and at the same the be filled with joy the same way that Ornstein and Smough or Ludwig did. This is certainly a series that I will follow closely, just got my Ys Origin copy from Steam and will start playing this weekend.

    Lucky you, hackncrazy . I got hooked on the series too via the PSP.
    HIGHLY recommend getting it on PC- playing it with 60FPS and comfy keyboard controls is great. What difficulty did you play on?
    In any case, be sure to try all the Ys games on Steam. They're not as fun as Felghana imho- but they're still great games on their own.


    Also, hell! Ys Seven on PC. Very cool. I wasn't crazy for the changes it brought the series, but still willing to give it another try, especially with 60FPS.

    I've played on the hardest difficulty available at the start (hard I think), but I must admit that when I was at the final boss I thought about resetting all over again because it was insanely hard. After I beat it, NIghtmare difficulty opened and I'm very eager to play it again on that.

    As for Origin, I really hope there is a way to play it with joystick. I don't want to play a game like this on keyboard.

    Nightmare is the true difficulty - has all the attack patterns unlocked, and enemies are more aggressive.
    Try it sometime, and good luck!

    Ok, just finished Ys Origin and I just want to know WTF is wrong with this world when masterful games like the ones in the YS Series are underrated in every way while things like FF receives all the spotlights?

    For what I've played now, YS surpass pretty much every JRPG from the past 15 years in so many departments. The soundtrack is out of this world, the graphics are pretty good and, most of it all, the gameplay requires reflex, strategy and understanding how the game works.

    It's a crime that this series doesn't get more recognition. Even if the rest is absolute shit, Oath In Felghana and Origin are far better than every Final Fantasy out there.

    Ys is my Zelda replacement and Legend of Heroes is my Final Fantasy replacement.

    The short answer is that Square Enix put much more effort into exporting their titles since the mid 90s, whereas Falcom didn't/doesn't really bother, and when they do, they outsource it to a lot of different someone elses so the rights are a clusterfuck.
