Best PS4 Games #40 – Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana

Developer: Nihon Falcom

Synopsis: You play as Adol, a passenger on the ship Lombardia. You and the entirety of the ship wash up on the Isle of Seiren, with Adol tasked in bringing a party together to help explore the island in the inevitable goal of escape. For now, players will find themselves completing quests and removing obstacles in their path while taking down fantastical beasts of gigantic to minuscule scale.

Why it’s one of the 50 best PS4 games: Whereas a sprawling world to slowly chip away at has increasingly become the standard for RPGs, Ys VIII offers up the island for players to adventure through from the get-go. Avoiding basic RPG tropes, this game offers up a party with distinct characters, excellent personalities and great teamwork through combat mechanics.

A harrowing soundtrack that sets the desired tone at any time, Ys VIII creates a rich, lively world to explore in a healthy journey that doesn’t drag, nor feel less than satisfactory.
