Ys yeeeease

I started the summer with Ys I.  To say it’s simple is an understatement, but I find myself playing it as if I wasn’t a cynical asshole with RPGs.  It’s also extremely enjoyable to play through, as each level you gain makes you exponentially stronger.  So while the game world is somewhat open, you mostly get rocked if you’re not at the right level.  When you do actually find where to go, it’s satisfying in the way that solving a puzzle is.  Only change I would make is to select Hard for the difficulty, I feel like a truck the way the red-haired little main character runs over enemies.

I still haven’t made up my mind on the music yet.  I know it is supposed to have some of the greatest music of all time so I will wait to make a judgement.
