#18 - Ys: Oath in Felghana (90% Kudos to Player2 for guessing this)

I feel like I've said a few times during this thread that I've been surprised by how much I've loved a game the first time I play it, and OiF is definitely one of those games.  Bought in a PSN sale to get me ready for the upcoming Ys: Memories of Celceta, it actually turned out to be one of the best JRPG's I've played in years and a huge amount of fun.

Part Zelda; part 2D platformer; part hack 'n' slash and part JRPG, Oath is definitely the weirdest of the Ys games I've played and yet it works so bloody well.  You're always doing something entertaining - exploring dungeons; fighting bosses or exploring towns and talking to strange villagers, it's all in here.

Throw in a fantastic soundtrack and some genuinely mind-blowing boss battles (that also pose a massive challenge, too) and you've got one of the most enjoyable games I've played in years.  Slight mis-steps were made with the story and it's not the prettiest game I've ever played, but exploring the land of Felghana with Adol and Dogi was an adventure I was very happy to be taking.
