I just realized I hadn't made an introduction post. Better late than never.
First thing to say I suppose is that I wouldn't of became interested in Ys if I hadn't seen Korzic's speed run of Ys I (link) on Speed Demos Archive. I heard of the series up to that point but I never looked into it because it has a weird name. I know that's a pretty odd reason but..hay guise, Ys? Why's? Y-s? I was so confused. LOL. I just had to play the game after seeing that. The first Ys game I ever played.....I hate to admit this but it was the Nintendo DS version. EW! HEY! At least it has a map so you don't get lost..
/me has an unhealthy relationship with games as in, sometimes I don't finish games even though I like them alot.
My Ys playtime in chronological order~
Play/beat Ys I on DS.
Play/get lost/never finish Ys II on DS.
Obtain/play/beat Ys Origin with all characters on Normal
BECOME OBSESSED WITH Ys from this point on.
Too many things to list..
At the very least I'll say that Ys has become my #1 favorite RPG series. If I had to select my top 3 games I would put Ys Seven on the top followed by Ys Origin and Ys III for PS2 as third. Definitely more of a semi-lurker but, will probably become a full-time lurker at the very least and maybe posting every now and then.
