Game order?
Simple question.. for the best gamer experience, do I play the games in chonological order by release date or by setting date?

...And if by setting, then what order are the games supposed to be in? (and release date if the originals aren't the same as the Steam release dates)

This is the timeline for Y's games:

Y's Origin
Y's 1
Y's 2
Y's: Memories of Calceta (only out for Vita)
Y's: Oath in Felghana
Y's 5, 6, 7

If you want to play them in 'proper' order, the only real rule to play Y's 1 and then 2. They were originally designed as one game. The plot follows directly, and the gameplay is very similar.

Y's Origin gets into the history that came before Y's 1. It actually came out long after Y's 1, so it doesn't matter much when you play it. Oath in Felghana takes place in a whole different country, and is sort of a side story. Origin and Felghana both have a more modern, 3d style to them.

If you want to play everything available on steam in a row, I'd do 1 -> 2 -> Origin -> Felghana.

For the best gamer experience, crank the volume all the way up.

FYI it's "Ys" (not "Y's") and "Celceta" (not "Calceta").

But...

Yes, yes, and heck yes.

Alrighty, crank the volume up....but here's another question. BGM type Chronicles, Complete, or PC-88 Original?

I strongly vote Chronicles. I absolutely love the JDK rockin' guitars... but I understand there are fans of them all.

Don't forget Dawn of Ys, though not canon it's still a must play no matter what.
Ys IV and Ys V are translated on Snes, so check those out too
