For the life of me, I've never heard of the game.
It definitely seem to be one of those more uncommon gems on the PS1. I've watched a few reviews on YouTube and read some too. Most of the people who've played it list it as being in their top 10 games, so it definitely sounds promising!
I've started to collect games more, even if Im not to keen on it, but get it for the right price. Keeping the discs/manuals in a folder, and putting the cases in storage. One day they'll be worth a lot of money, or entertainment.
I'm curious as to why you split the the box from the game/manual. I have most of my game collection on display in my room now. It looks nice and it means that everything is easy for me to access, because I don't collect just to let them sit in a shelf. I collect and play most of what I buy.
Yesterday I bought a lot of games from eBay. Some because they were cheap and worth a shot, others because I've been wanting to play them. For any of you who are subscribed to me on YouTube they'll be in a video at some point. Here's a quick list of what I bought though:
Resident Evil (2002 GameCube remake)
Resident Evil 4 (GameCube)
Alien Trilogy (PS1)
Devil May Cry 1-3 (PS2)
Tomb Raider (Saturn)
Was also at a car boot sale today and got what I consider to be an amazing find! So I went around most of the vendors and found nothing of interest. Then I decided to take a look around the vans that sell stuff. Usually there's no point because it's game re-sellers who charge silly amounts.
I got to one van that had LOADS of games. He had a massive pile all marked at Â£1. Nothing of interest in there. Moved onto his individually priced games and it was all over priced shit. However, whilst flicking through the overpriced shit I saw a Ys game on PS2 marked at Â£4. I couldn't believe it. A Ys game for Â£4?! I bought it and he was like "that's a collectors item" and expected him to tell me he priced it wrong, but no, he gave me it.
Now the cover art and instruction manual are water damaged fairly badly. Cover art looks fine but parts of the art are stuck to the case and cant be removed without ripping, but as long as I keep them in that box it looks fine. The manual is badly water damaged on some pages. Pages had at one point been stuck together and then forced open because there's a few ripped pages. Still, it's like a Â£20+ game and fairly rare in PAL regions. There's currently only two copies of this game on eBay UK.
Awesome bargain. Yet to test the game though. It's not meant to be the best of the Ys series, but I've always wanted to see what this series was like and Â£4 was an awesome deal!
