    I didn't like it as much as 7 or gaiden.
    The turn-based combat has already overstayed its welcome, and the island and sujinon shit sucks. The story is especially bad, even for Yakuza standards.

      I'd take turn-based combat for another 10 entries over brawlershit. The first 3 games especially were suffering in terms of actual combat.

          Yakuza is a shitty brawler. It was honestly at its best in 4 and 5 where they just gave you a 100 different super contextual heat actions because at least then you could make it a creative spectacle by doing lots of different setups.

            Yakuza is a narrative game first and foremost, gameplay is always secondary to these games. Half the game is made up of sega arcade games already. I can play one Yakuza game every 2/3 years. It’s just way too draining. Idk how people can binge these games

            Say what you want about the brawler combat, but they had to monopoly on that genre, and throwing it all away for the most braindead turn-based combat was such a lame decision.

        back attacks, proximity attacks, manual movement, ability to knock enemies into eachother/your own teammates, combo attacks, some cool new jobs, kiryu able to break out of turn based, style switching with kiryu, much better designed boss fights.

      >Sawashiro acknowledges Ichi's strength and respects him now
      >Ichiban being the other son of Arakawa who had more experience with him gets to be the one to apologize in his place and empathize with him for having similar experiences but different outcomes
      >Ichiban can relate both his feelings about Tomizawa and Chitose betraying him and forgiving them and his confrontation with Ebina, who said that some people don't deserve a chance to restart, into his final words with Eiji, showing that he can still consider the man a friend and will carry him in order to let him take the first steps in getting a second chance to restart himself
      Instead, they split this throughline with Kiryu and Ichiban loses half the emotional development that could've been given to him.

    I hate how slow the intro is, compare it to Yaluza 7, where everything up until Ichiban ends up at the homeless camp is perfectly set up, leaving you hooked for the entire rest of the game, everything until you get to Hawaii feels like going through the motions in comparison.

      I hate how you don't unlock jobs until halfway through the game in 8. That, and the constant party switching make 8 a chore to play.

      this is hands down the worst thing the series has ever done. it genuinely made me dislike ichiban as a character. i can't tell if this is more pathetic than kiryu crying while literally on top of ebina asking him not to bully his friends and caressing him then faitnting on top of him post-nut.

      8's ending has to be the worst in the franchise so far, including spin-offs.
      Seeing a withered Kiryu in a wheelchair was just a empty feeling. Yomoyama couldn't just let him walk into the sunset. He just had to fricking self-insert his cancer experience. I guess it's a good representation of where the franchise currently is.

        He's charming and likeable, and often people conflate these characteristic as being a good character. They're good "people" but they're not complex character.

          This is actually totally normal mob mentality. Most people are more cowardly and impressionable than they themselves think, and they will eagerly start shit but not be able to see it through. Harassing a supposed criminal while he's not threatening them is easy; but seeing a human getting their face pulped while they're not fighting back is disturbing. Once some people were off put and ashamed of themselves, the rest of the sheeple start to think that they too should be ashamed and leave before they get more involved with any law-breaking barbarity thatay lead to getting in trouble themselves.
          The game even showed that one of the self-righteous mob attendees was still against Ichiban at the end, when that glass bottle was thrown.

        This was legit the most dogshit thing in existence and cemented Ichiban as a pathetic homosexual who can't even stand up for himself. NOBODY in reality will respect you after see you allow yourself to get fricking wailed on like that by someone you could clearly take out in one punch. Saeko's pussy would instantly dry up if she were to see that and make her actually just forever ghost this stupid moron. Any other man with self respect would be fricking embarrassed to be seen with someone like him for various reasons ranging from worrying his homosexual antics will brush off on them or just being worried about losing face for being seen with a pathetic b***h like that.

        Yokoyama is seriously just a moronic hack writer with no experience when it comes to the life lessons shit he's trying to write. moron doesn't even understand the most basic of interactions someone would generally have to witnessing an event like that.

        did none of you catch that the dudes that fight him at the end are supposed to be the guys from the beginning of the game? the connection being Ichiban at the start being desperate to be proven innocent after being slandered and beating those dudes up, to the ending where he accepts that it doesn't matter if people hate him since all that matters to him is how he feels about himself and the people around him. That's also why at the end of the cutscene he'll happily say goodbye to Eiji and shrug off everything that just happened to go get some food before passing out while everyone stares at him. It's his way of showing maturity and being honest with himself, that eventually does also allow him to say clearly how he feels about Saeko as well, even if he still fumbles it afterwards.

          Again, this isn't a good excuse for him just letting that guy beat his face to a pulp, if anything it's a damn good reason for Ichi to do the exact opposite, at most he should've just let him land one punch and then pummel his ass in self defense like

      Realistically, how many games does Ichiban have in him before he gets canned? The fact that they brought Kiryu back and gave him the spotlight in Ichiban's 2nd game shows that they clearly aren't confident in his ability to carry a game on his own (Kiryu got 3 games to himself before he had to share screentime, and even in 4 he was still clearly the top dog). 8 saw Ichiban's character take such a fricking nosedive that I wouldn't at all be surprised if 9 was his last game.

      On a similar note, how do the japs feel about him? I'm pretty sure Gaiden and both Judgements outsold 7 in Japan, but I'm not sure if that's indicative of a dislike for Ichiban or a dislike for the change in gameplay.

        I don't think Kiryu came back because the team isn't confident in Ichiban, but just because they can't let go of Kiryu themselves. Fans refuse to let go of Kiryu too and continue to beg for more games with Kiryu. All the Bucket List stuff in 8 feels like a loving way to send off Kiryu, who got such an unsatisfying "end" in 6 that fans refused to accept. If Kiryu isn't retired in 9, I'll regret defending the team, but at this point I honestly feel like he will be retired. 8's developments for Kiryu feel like the only part of the game that will actually be relevant to the next game.

            >Interviewer: Interesting, that checks out. It's not that Kiryu is there because he's Kiryu, he's there because the story ended up needing someone like Kiryu.
            >Yokoyama: All these characters live in the same world after all. So much like how characters from previous works also appear in LaD:7, it just became impossible to avoid him due to the story's subject matter. It's different from Lost Judgment which keeps those characters completely separate from its story. While the two series do take place in the same universe, their stories each exist their own ecosystems, so there's no reason for those sets of characters to interact.
            >With LaD:7, the story was in ways an extension of the original Yakuza/Like a Dragon series, so we had to bring out some old characters to help move the story forward. It wasn't at all to help the sales of the game. And to be honest? From a marketing standpoint it actually might've been better if they weren't there at all.

              literally how does Kiryu need to be involved in this story. I feel like most of what's established in the plot could've been done without him. The only thing that would've necessitated Kiryu/the stuff connected to him would've just been having the Daidoji pull a Joji Kazama and giving Ichiban the hyper jet that lets him go between Hawaii and Japan fast enough to let the plot continue.

          It's clear to some degree they can't let go of him. That's why Nagoshi explicitly told them 6 had to be the last one since he knew they had to change things. With him no longer there, they're falling back into old habits.

      he got totally flanderised in this game as others have pointed out, ironically the one time he wasn't portrayed as a complete bumbling goof who could never threaten anyone was when he intimidates one of the journalists right before he goes to pick up eiji

        He stands up to Roman too, but then Kiryu has to upstage him. And when he stands up to Yamai to protect Tomi, Kiryu has to upstage him again.
        Tomi gets to be the star of the big showdown with Dwight, and Chitose gets to be the star when dealing with Eiji in Hawaii and Bryce on Nele.
        I don't think Ichiban was "flandarized" so much as he was just never the most important character in any fight or action scene. The camera is only ever centered on Ichiban during scenes about trust/friendship.

    How come they never deviated again with Goro? Yakuza 0 is amazing simply because of Majima and Kiryu dual plot was really engaging. How did they never recapture this, and why does Goro take a back seat to the narrative if he’s so well beloved? Everyone knows his character is a farce, a straight up mask, and we never get to see the other side of him anymore. I get that his plot is resolved but so was Kiryus so what the frick?

    8's story and ending is probably the worst in the franchise for me. I'm not saying that to be like old good new bad, I mean 8 is genuinely a bad game. The substories suck (except the snow one), the island shit sucks, the sujimon shit sucks, and the suijimon job sucks as well. The music is also some of the most forgettable in the franchise. The only good character is Yamai, and his theme song is the only good song in the game.

        because gaiden was actually okay and then 8 just does everything to shit on that game and make it not even be worth the play since at the end of it, nothing that happened in that game matters. only important character that gets ported over from gaiden into 8 dies gets unceremoniously killed and the plot about the daidoji is just dropped with no explanation.

        Yakuza rarely ages up the characters, and if they do, they do it to enough of a degree that people won't be turned off. Even Majima, Daigo, and Saejima are back to looking how they did way back in Yakuza 5 and before by the end of 8.

      How would everyone feel if the next game confirmed that Ichiban was just playing the fool here because he knew that Eiji needed to feel like he had a friend in order to turn over a new leaf? Ichiban says to Kiryu earlier in the game in regards to Tomizawa "it's easy to tell when someone needs a friend", and Ichiban is also well aware now (after Masato) that people become desperate and dangerous when they feel alone. Would it help at all with your perception of Ichiban to find out that he extends his friendship to people he knows don't really deserve it, just to give them the strength they need to change?
      I suppose some people would still treat him like a "cuck" for devoting himself to people who have wronged him, but that's exactly the kind of character Ichiban has been from the start.

    Here are the Japs thoughts on this game:
    >"The story is not well-received overseas either.
    It's full of afterthoughts and I'm tired of Kiryu's do-or-die business methods."
    >"The movie is too long ー The story is sloppy ー One chapter takes 4 hours ーThe battles are monotonous and the tempo is slow ー The enemies are too hard and each battle takes too long ー Just guard is so severe that it's almost impossible ー Dungeons Long and terrible harassment level ー Being detained for several hours on the first Dondoko Island"
    >"The story was so bad that it leaked out and caused a bit of an uproar."
    >The peak of laughter was when we took a survey in Chapter 1 and everyone said ``I don't buy it.'' It's really painful just looking at the content, it's miserable for the players."
    >"Putting Nagoshi aside, the previous games were just a bunch of battle crap, but the story somehow made you read the game, but
    this time it's the complete opposite.You want to fight, but you don't want to follow the story."
    >"Being detained for several hours on Dondoko Island is tiring."
    >"Gaiden's musical sense is no longer Nagoshi's and has deteriorated, but the theme song and BGM are too weak."
    >"I thought it was mostly bad in 7, but it has gotten worse"
    >"I've reached chapter 4, but to be honest, it's not as interesting as the previous work so far.The story continues to be relatively uninteresting, and it doesn't really draw you in"
    >"I want both Kiryu and Kasuga to end this work, which is bad in terms of story, and
    change the main character and setting every time from the next work."
    >"The battles are boring as always, you just keep choosing the same strong moves and grinding them out , and it's more troublesome than in 7 because you have to move and aim
    with no strategy."
    >"Even though it's a movie game, the story is crap. There's nothing I can do about it.
    I bought this shitty garbage game at full price, lol."

He's the one with whom Ichiban has the closest connection, as he's his half-brother, so it would have been more exciting to have him intertwined with Ichiban, but Ichiban Ichiban in 7 is quite intelligent. However, by the time he reached 8, he had become just a good-natured semi-protagonist.There was no need to lift up Kiryu at all costs, but in order to raise Kiryu up, Ichiban was used as a foil, and each past character was left behind. I lowered it and it left a bad aftertaste.

        He asked what the Japanese were thinking, you stupid fricking moron.

        Realistically, how many games does Ichiban have in him before he gets canned? The fact that they brought Kiryu back and gave him the spotlight in Ichiban's 2nd game shows that they clearly aren't confident in his ability to carry a game on his own (Kiryu got 3 games to himself before he had to share screentime, and even in 4 he was still clearly the top dog). 8 saw Ichiban's character take such a fricking nosedive that I wouldn't at all be surprised if 9 was his last game.

        On a similar note, how do the japs feel about him? I'm pretty sure Gaiden and both Judgements outsold 7 in Japan, but I'm not sure if that's indicative of a dislike for Ichiban or a dislike for the change in gameplay.

    I've only played the first Judgment and thought the story was okay but I actually didn't really like the combat that much. It might sound strange but it was too "fluid" for my liking Hitting punch slid me across the street to hit the other guy standing over there. I genuinely prefer some of the rigidity of the earlier Yakuza games like 4. Is Lost Judgment any better?

      Combat wise yes. Story starts great but drags after a certain event but gets good again in the end. The last boss has worse presentation and set up than the last boss of the previous game but is better in other things.

    I just finished Yakuza 8 and as someone who absolutely hated 7 I think this one is better overall. The gameplay has a lot of little things added to it, it's still not great but at least it's better than 7. I thought the story in 7 was moronic as frick and Ichiban kept crying, they were trying way too hard with this shit. In 8 he doesn't act too moronic except at the end (sadly). Honestly I played 8 mostly because I loved Gaiden's story and I wanted to see what happens to Kiryu, his story is okay but that fricking ending...why ? We don't even see Kiryu and Haruka together...I guess they keeping it for the beginning of the next mainline game but that's such a weird choice. Well, at least I guess the Daidoji let him go and get his real name back.
    I think Ebina is good enough as a final boss but Bryce is one of the shittiest antagonist of the series and his lack of charisma really doesn't help, especially when he speaks in english (I play in nihongo tbh) the voice actor is struggling so hard it's terrible to hear. Yamai was cool though. Still one of the worst Yakuza games but I'd say it's better than 7, hopefully they don't stick with Ichiban for too long because 8 showed (again) that Kiryu is way too based and Ichiban is not the right successor.

    I spent 70 dollars on a game I enjoy in a series I enjoy.
    You spent 35 hours this week raging about a game you didn't play in a series you clearly don't like after seeking out spoilers before the game's release

    I don't get what spoilers are supposed to do. 8 doesn't have some goofy TWEEST like locker babies. The only thing close is mystery half-brother which is par for the course.

      It’d be fine if ichiban actually fought him at the end
      The point of both twists is to set up a connection between the characters via dramatic exaggeration
      They don’t do anything with it, so it’s just stupid on its own

      idek the spoilers yet but come on.
      I knew right away someone we meet early in the game is gonna be Ichiban's half brother and keeping it a secret. Eiji? Tomizawa? idc it was gonna be someone.
      You don't play half the games in this series and not see it, every time it's someone who helps you at the start they fricking knew everything going on all along and betray you. Kido, Aizawa, Hirose, this shit happens EVERY GAME.

    You know you can like something while having criticisms of it right? Why the frick are people sperging out over the fact some people take issue with the lackluster story and side-content?

      there are people who don't know how to handle buyers remorse so they delude themselves into thinking the game they spent upwards of $70 on is a flawless gory contender

        Liking product is their whole identity. If you insult the product you insult them.

        sadly this is how people who pre-order games behave too
        they do so because they already have a financial stake in the product

      the one screeching hasn't played the game, is from the Philippines, and is mad the game has Denuvo and he can't play it which is why he has been shitposting all week. No one is saying you have to like Bryce or Ichiban's Flanderization.
      That is very different from the shitposting.

    Nagoshi knew that the series would go nowhere if they kept going back to Kiryu which was why Ichiban was created. Clearly, Yokoyama didn't get the memo.
