Ys: The Oath in Felghana

Arcane, definitely old fashioned, and a total straight-putt plot, if there were direct to VHS video games, Ys: The Oath of Felghana would be just that. A worthy entry-point into the series, this 2005 PC remake of the 1989 YS III treads retro button-mashing ground with an engaging three spell swap system and the speedy, combat-focused exploration the series is beloved for. Unfortunately, unlike its predecessors, you will have to input every sword-swing and may end up a bit sore and with little to show for it after pounding your head against one of the game’s excellent but devastating bosses.
