26. Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim

Ys in its 3D glory.

Developer: Nihon Falcom
Genre: Action
Theme: Solo-adventure Hero

With the franchise’s many installments, Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim is the series’ first time to render a game in 3D. The game features anime-style graphics which could be considered common in most Japanese RPGs, and it provides hours of gameplay with the traditional level-grinding, platforming, equipment enhancing, and tons of dialogue from the place’s lore to downright hilarious side comments.

Meet Adol Christin, a redhead swordsman, as he is washed to Canaan Island’s shores and embarks on a journey to investigate the archipelago and get entangled with the conflict between the elven-like Redhas and the human Eresians.

Redheads and swords usually go hand-in-hand.

While the game seems dated, the gameplay is actually fluid, and you might end up glued to the screen for hours whacking monsters and frying mobs with a ricocheting lightning spell, or perhaps throw away your keyboard when you can’t seem to master the Dash Jump early. If you’re a fan of anime, action-RPGs, the Ys series, or someone who wanted a game easy enough to play yet hard to master, it is recommended that you try this one out.
