....it's so expensive; $14.99 for each Ys game? isn't that overpriced? or should I just settle for a pc version instead? I am not sure if 60$ is worth it for 4 psp games.

To be honest just get Ys Seven

When it comes to Ys Seven in particular, that 14.99 is actually pretty cheap for what you get. You can easily get 20+ hours out of the main story and upwards of 40-50 if you are a completionist. I think my playthrough took about 22-23 hours. (I went through a couple more times, but I dont remember how long each time)

Its my favorite PSP game and I had just as much fun playing it again on the Vita. Ys Seven, Guacamelee and Uncharted are my top 3 games that I recommend to anyone that is even semi interested in them.

My point exactly. While services like the iOS store and steam (not that different) are convenient in the short term, they absolutely destroy the actual value of games, leading people to balk at the idea of paying even greatly reduced prices ($15 for a game, which is a GREAT deal). This in turn leads to lower sales until said sale prices come around on digital services. This further in turn decreases the amount of money devs and publishers make on games.

Why does this matter to you? With the number of studios that went out of business last gen because of reduced return you should see what the problem is. You're laughing all the way to the next gaming crash. And all of that because you're incredibly spoiled.
