You are supposed to do article side by side comparisons like this when they are written by the same person not two different people, and "life comes at you fast" is for things that happen around three days later not three years later (also, again, it's supposed to happen to the same person, life isn't coming at you fast if it is happening to someone else).

  3. "Ys Origin is a Japanese action role-playing game developed and published by Nihon Falcom for Microsoft Windows in 2006." (Wikipedia, November 2013) I've played this RPG for 45 hours on the hardest of the 5 difficulties (nightmare, hard, normal, easy, very easy) with "Hugo" (1 of 3 characters) and completed it by level 52. I found the story to be a run-of-the-mill "good guy wants power, turns evil temporarily, and repents through the power of friendship/love". I'm generally not the type of guy to delve into, and enjoy, the story of a game very much anyways, so I didn't mind it. In fact, considering that I look for "great gameplay" in games, and what type of gameplay I'll tend to go for, I would practically expect a story to be "the usual" in a game (not to say I haven't enjoyed original stories). I don't know how the story goes with the other 2 characters, since I haven't played them yet. This game, played with a top-down camera angle, plays kinda like a shooter when Hugo is the chosen character, as his attacks revolve around shooting magic missiles straight ahead of him. After a quick test run, the other 2 characters appear to revolve around close-range melee combat. On the hardest difficulty level, the bosses offer such a challenge that you'll find yourself grinding a lot, just to gain that extra level or two and be able to defeat the boss at all (and even then, your battle strategy better be near perfect). This game has some simple puzzle-solving, if you can even call it that. You'll find yourself having to press buttons, defeat certain enemies, obtain and use items/skills, and so on. I did enjoy the challenging gameplay, but it would get frustrating at times with bosses, and also 1 time with a certain enemy that can practically insta-kill you (but that you'll still have to deal with). The only thing to do there is keep looking around for equipment and the like, and grind in special spots to gain levels. If you want to know how nice the graphics look, just "You-Google-Tube" some gameplay footage on the game. And while you're at it, check out the soundtrack for it as well. It's pretty awesome. As of this post, the game is $19.99 USD on Steam and I'd say it's worth the price if you love to spend many hours on a challenging "battle-grind" RPG. If it turns-out that you love the game, then you may also love "Ys: The Oath in Felghana", which follows a similar gaming style. You may want to avoid Ys I & II though, which has your main attack revolve around ramming into enemies (like in Hydlide), which ruins any sense of "gameplay" (at least in my opinion). Feel free to give your own thoughts on the game or the game series.
