So, to be clearer, this poll is about whether you actually enjoy oldschool (like pre-Ys-I-II-COMPLETE) Ys games or not, and actually go or would go out of your way to play them, even today. The Ys games on PC-98, Saturn, PCEngine/TG CD, X68000, NES, SNES and so on.
I for sure would and still do play them to this day. I love both the old and new (so far).
haha I remember playing Ys for the first time years ago and laughing at how you actually attack enemies--by carefully bumping them just the right way. xP I probably wouldn't go back to the older ones if just to get a dose of nostalgia. That being said, though, I would like to revisit them to see how the story was originally...and see how it changed over the years. I would love to see a document on the story differences between the original titles an their current day remakes.

I always play through I&II for the TG16 at least once a year. I still don't think it will ever be topped. I've played the original I - III on the complete works disc, but I haven't finished those versions yet. Still want to! I love the TG16 and SNES Ys III though. I prefer The Dawn of Ys over Mask of the Sun, but both of them are still great. I haven't played Ys V since I made that video playthrough, but that was my third time playing through it anyway.

Over the years I have been playing all versions of all Ys and Ys-related games ever released, always reporting the differences between each and every one of them (in all regards rather than just story), so eventually I might compile everything I have "witnessed" into one single document and post it here, if interested.
Some actually present slightly different dialogues or events even between old versions of the games released around the same time, although not by much, but it's still quite intriguing. Sadly I don't understand much Japanese, so I can't spot them all. I did take screenshots of some "key" dialogue I could tell was different, though, like in the Dark Fact fight in Ys I for a computer by Sharp called X68000. It didn't get translated, though. But at least those that are curious and understand Japanese can read them.
Oh definitely, especially the PCE versions if I-II and IV which I replay relatively often (I'm fine with listening to the music of III and then playing the SNES version) and I'll sometimes go back and try out the PC88/98 Ys games along with Falcom's other titles for those systems. Emulated, I'm not as awesome as SkyeWelse.
Tom, I definitely count the Ys Anime as old school as well. The type of animation style used, the way the characters are drawn, the usage and re-usage of stock animation frames and well, Luta Gemma's mustache and Dark Factor's hair. : )
