  1. One modern Yakuza game is enough, you’ve played them all by that point. I stopped after 4 before this became a huge ironic weeb meme series, 2 is the only must-play of them.

  2. >combat eventually devolves into every single boss blocking all your attacks
    >half of the substories are either 2 minutes long, having to be god tier at a minigame or an incredibly boring grind to fill up all the hostesses meters
    >the main story is one of the absolute worst ever written for a game, full of excessive padding and incredibly stupid soap opera plot twists
    >the true villains goal literally can’t happen and he should know that

    Absolutely hated this game, hope 4 is better when I get to it

    • 4’s story is even worse but the individual stories in 4 are all collectively better than 3 as a whole, I enjoyed 4 a lot and it’s high up there in my RGG tier lists because of how fun it is.

        • i see more people saying they liked 4 than hated it. its always just because of akiyama though. most that say they like 4 have no justification other than him being in it, like they dropped the game as soon as part 1 ended and memoryholed the whole thing.

          4 is entirely too boring and poorly written in general, and part 2 in particular is possibly the worst section in the entire series.

    • It’s an enjoyable game for sure, the combat is really brutal and you can just bruise some goon’s face in real time unlike the others after 4. I liked the bruises and blood goons would get.

  3. Why is yakuza combat so exponentially dogshit?
    I understand I’m not supposed to use my brain while playing yakuza but after playing though the brawler games 1-6 I feel like my IQ dropped exponentially thanks to the combat
    Why can’t RGGS add depth and skill to it? do they think their audience is comprised of braindead idiot monkeys?

  4. what the fuck were they thinking with kiwami
    0 did everything better
    kiwami is not only a fucking slog but they somehow manage to make the combat even worse

  5. WHY would you even play 3? Most of us didn’t have a choice back then. If you know a game is irredeemable dogshit, then skip it and read summaries.

  6. Anyone who tells you to play all the Yakuza games is either a massive autistic loser or trolling you. 3-5 are not worth playing. At all. Watch a 15 minute recap video on youtube. Play 0, K1, K2, and then 6 after you get the gift of 3-5. And even in K1 I would suggest not bothering with the majority of the sub stories.

    • It’s not. 3 is the second shortest one in the series, only ahead of the PS2 original. Main story only takes 20 hours and there isn’t that much side content compared to 2 or the later games.
