    I honestly can't imagine how they will top Lost Judgment's combat. They just can't in my mind.
    8 better be a whole lot less grindy and tone down the fucking encounter rate.

      8 will be a turn based JRPG again considering they already said it's the gameplay they want to move forward with.

      My biggest hope for 8 is that they refine the existing job system to actually make master skills from other classes synergize better and really expand your options for creating logical hybrid classes. 7's job system was a good base but the vast majority of master skills were very samey and didn't logically mesh with other jobs. I think the most logical case was taking Nanba through a few classes to get him a spell from each element that you could use when you eventually switched him back to being a bum but otherwise there really weren't any master skills that would be "good for X class". There were skills that were just good skills but otherwise, any skill you saw that would be great for another class wasn't a master skill. What it boiled down to was you were only taking characters through classes just for the additional stats. It sapped creativity and strategy out of building your characters. They need to overhall the system to either open up the amount of master skills each class has or at the very least, rethink which master skills each class has. What might work is make all skills master skills and assign each one a point value. When you swap classes, you can then pick and choose which master skills to equip up to a point cap (with the cap increasing as the character levels). This would create a much more flexible and interesting system but also make players make choices of what master skills to take so they can't just have every character be able to eventually access everything at once.

      I also want to see the random street weapons mechanic adjusted to be more consistent and intentional. The mechanic was cool but barely utilized because you had no way of knowing if Ichi would pick up a nearby object on his way to attack so there was no way to strategically use it. It was random and I seldom ever saw it happen.

      Gaiden's going to be an action game like LJ, so the combat will probably be just as polished and smooth as that game.

    series peaked at 0
    none of the games have been as good since then, but at least LJ has fun combat. shame we're going back to the uninspired shit the churned out for 7.

      It peaked with 0 but J-7-LJ are amazing. There are no better 3 games in a row in the series.

        Judgment's let down by shitty detective elements despite the enjoyable story
        7's combat is fucking awful and makes the game a slog
        LJ has a worse story than J and the detective elements are still really shit but the combat's at least good
        story-wise, they're decent even if 7 feels like a mess at points, but as overall games, the only one i would think about relpaying is LJ, the other two are too bogged down by bad gameplay elements.

    I’m skipping 7 since Gaiden seems like it’s going to cover the important stuff
    Saves me a headache anyway, since I heard 7’s a fucking terrible RPG, and the boss gameplay I’ve seen looks boring, so hopefully the system in 8 looks fun enough

    playing through Kiwami 2 now, and man it really sucks. I hope it gets better. Don't like the upgrade system. Even the story is really meh honestly. Not a fan of Kaoru. I can tell why they wrote her off supposedly.

    Not always, but its been consistently pretty good for 15 years, which is a pretty major accomplishment for a game series
