Hello All,
Is there or has there ever been a compilation collection of Y's games released?  Thank you

ARGH EXTRANEOUS APOSTROPHES ARRRRGH

But to address your question, I think there have only been compilations of Ys I+II. Bunches of those. XSEED has put them on sale quite often recently, though. Not hard to get the ones they've put out.

There aren't any big compilations, mostly because the games have been on a huge variety of platforms.

Being a "first post," I can't help but wonder if this is intentional trolling. Someone just wants our collective blood pressure to go up because "Y's" = "wise" and then HEAD ASPLODE... :P

Do people actually get upset if there is an apostrophe added to Ys (pronounced Whys, of course)

I'm fairly certain my pronunciation of it used to be "Yiss" when I was younger.

Given how unconventional the name is as a title for...well, anything, I agree with this.
The game's name is never really pronounced through voice over work either, unless you see the japanese characters that demonstrate it's "yeez" over "wise".

On the other hand, I did get pretty upset when some Japanophile who played Okami pronounced "Amaterasu" as "Ameratsu"...

I'm fairly certain my pronunciation of it used to be "Yiss" when I was younger.

I despise inappropriate apostrophes of all types.  Especially when they're used as incorrect plurals, but also when they're used to misspell Ys.

The name pops up in Ark of Napishtim and they say Yees there. That game has an accent roulette thing going on so that makes it a little unclear if it was just an accent thing or not.

I pronounce it as Ees.
