Game Sack - The Ys series
The Ys series is an often overlooked and mispronounced series of action RPGs. It has niche but loyal audience. Watch and see what all the fun is about!
If you want a good alternative to the Legend of Zelda series Ys is one series to check out. 4 games are currently available on the PC through Steam, Ys 1&2 Chronicles+, Ys the oath in Felghana, and Ys Origin. There is a possibility that Ys the Ark of Napishtim will eventually show up on Steam as well.
If you want to get into the series I recommend the Oath in Felghana as one of the first games you should play as it is the pinnacle of the series so far.
Also if you want a good challenge try beating any of the games on Nightmare mode.
I only have Ys book one and two for Turbo CD via Wii Virtual Console. I bought it because of word of mouth and was quite surprised at how good it was for back in the day.
Haha! The instant I read "special guest" I knew who it would be.
I fricken LOVE this series! Thanks for doing an ep on this guys :)
I've got Book 1&2 for the TurboDuo, along with Ys 3 on the TurboDuo, Genesis, and SNES. Charming little games with great soundtracks.
Thought it was pronounced "Yiss"
Tis a shame this game series has been stuck in the blindspot of many a JRPG fan...
YES! I've been hoping you guys would do an episode on this series since I started watching your videos. My personal favorite is Oath in Felghana.
