Ys: The Oath in Felghana[steampowered.com] ($3.74, 75% off) and Ys Origin[steampowered.com] ($4.99, 75% off) are also both on sale at prices that match their historical lows. I haven't played 1 & II , but Oath and Origin are both really fun hack-and-slash action games with ridiculously good soundtracks and some exceptionally challenging boss fights.
Just a heads up, Ys Chronicles has a very dated battle system that I personally found atrocious. You literally bump into the enemies, and you have to time it and approach from the side or they will damage you and you lose. I dropped the game after like 10 minutes because of this.
I can say Oath of Felghana is amazing, it is a re-hash of the side scrolling SNES/Genesis and TG Ys III and it is probably my favorite story from the series.
Haven't played Origin, but I read it was the same as Felghana style wise, but very long with three playable characters.
Great games! As far as the bumping enemies system, if you had Ys Book I & II on the NEC Turbografx, then you already are used to Chronicles. Anyways, still fun after all of these years and the others are good too! Buy 'em..
Ys origin is the best Ys game to date in my opinion. That was the last modern Ys game they made on PC. Falcom is still struggling to find its place after they made the move to consoles. The new legends of heroes game on ps3 sucked. I hope they hurry up and move to PS4/Xbox One already.
