Hey guys I'm new here, but anyway I recently found my old sega genesis and among the games I found my favorite called Ys III, for along time I've always wondered what the game was called. I started playing it again and there's just something about this game thats always stuck with me. I've been doing more research about this game and theres barely anything on it unless you do a hardcore search but I'm glad I found this place. Ys III from what I've read isn't a total fan favorite but since it's the first and only one I was introduced too, it'll always be my favorite.
I started with Ys I and probably because I started with Ys I and II (Turbo CDs), I did not enjoy Ys III at all. It was the set up and the lateral movements that I didn't like. I couldn't get use to it... I even try to play it again on an emulator... just wasn't the same as the bird eye's view.
Ys III was my first game in the Ys saga, well ok it's the only one i've played so far, but i liked it. i could never find any of the other games anwhere though. I was reshocked into the game when I heard that Ys 6 was coming out in the US. is that true?
My first Ys experience was Book I&II for the TG16 CD, It was the only RPG I ever really liked... then Ys III came out and I threw up all over myself, but if I stuck it in my CD player to just listen then it made me happy... happy squish.
However when Taito recently remade Ys III I was happy to play it,... I really enjoyed it this time around.

Nice to see support for Ys III. I've read on many sites over the years how "bad" it was. The first Ys III I played was the SNES version, then the PC Engine version. I have never had a moment when I didn't like the game. I still remember when they reviewed it on GamePro TV many years ago. I recently played the PS2 version and really enjoyed it. My favorite version that I've played is the PC Engine version. I used to think that version could never be beat. With Oath in Felghana on the way the excitement is really building to see how the musical arrangement will turn out. I'm going insane just thinking about it. From what I've seen on the demos, it looks promising. Redmont, here we come!!!!!!
Ys I SMS was my first dip into the franchise, which I quickly dropped for Ys Books I & II on the Turbo CD. I then moved to Ys III Genesis and Ys III SNES. Bought the former, rented the latter, beat both. I didn't play Ys III Turbo CD until about a year ago!
