    Why are people so angry about this game existing?

      Fans of a certain plumber are angry that it helped sell a ton of PS4s in America. Yakuza fans are angry that they had to play so many mediocre games, only to see the series summarized and improved for new fans, in a single game.

        This "game" is literally "press button to walk" and cutscene after cutscene, if this is the "best" game and the rest are mediocre, I wonder how bad the rest of the series is.

      I'm a newfag to Yakuza threads so I'm out of the circlejerk, but reading posts on other sites where fags who started with Y0 bitch and moan about Y1 and Y2 Kiwami being clunky or whatever really gave me some insight.

        Y2's combat was worse than 3's. They had a point.

      My personal opinion is there are two groups:
      - the usual retarded 'omg my sekrit klub has been invaded' retarded gay. You sometimes see these fags off of Ganker but mostly here
      -mentally ill shitposters who latch on to various games as they become popular. These retards are not Yakuza fans and likely have not played any of the games. These are exclusive to Ganker and mentally ill breeding pool that is Ganker/ They include pic related, and now the guy trying to shitposting using Judgment

      [...]

      he's used this thread three times, but before this it was some retardation about a doornob not being able to hang someone and he seethed about it for an entire thread.

        While I would love to believe the world is sane and Ganker is merely a niche distraction from the norm, I know the grim truth. As witnessed by all of the new players whose first game was Ryū ga Gotoku Ishin

      There are multiple reasons. None of which involve the game itself.
      It's the people who constantly suck it off and ignore the others. The ones who cause division in the community by acting like all of the other games are shit by comparison.

      Fans of a certain plumber are angry that it helped sell a ton of PS4s in America. Yakuza fans are angry that they had to play so many mediocre games, only to see the series summarized and improved for new fans, in a single game.

      At least learn about the series' history before talking shit, you clueless pube.

      What's the best gun in Ishin?

      It's only one guy on Ganker, he's very easy to recognize.

        Best gun in Ishin is the Model 14 or Golden Gun, it depends if you want more Symbols or a drop rate increase.
        Best gun in Ishin Kiwami is the Vortex. The Dragon Hawk could theoretically be better than it but it would require a significant amount of grind for both Yoshiyukis to get at least three Prosperities and then an untold amount of grind on Golden Sneaks for Kiwami Seals.

    It was comfy. I wouldn't mind the 0 fags if they at least showed respect to the series and the original games. But 99% of the time, 0 fags love to remind you that they cannot play 'these dated games'. Bandwagonners who only jumped in because it was the latest shiny thing.

      I have never ever ever seen this
      I have seen a handful of people say "Wow Yakuza 3 has a lot of blocking and it's about these kids too much, can I skip it" and usually people say no and they go "okay"

          The blocking issue doesn't happen remotely as frequently on Easy or Normal (Which PA is forced to) as on Hard or Legend. If you play on either of those it's prevalent, if you don't it's not. That's why it's such a common complaint, because a lot of people end up playing on Hard and on the remaster that's something really easy to notice.

          >tfw I love all the games

          Same. Even with its issues Ishin Kiwami's got some new content and different ways of going about things. Plus, the Ishin difficulty made me change up how I play and be much more cautious for a lot of it.

    Being honest, a bit painful seeing content being cut from the game or not bringing at all, people may bitch and moan about "how the games are bad after 0" but I'm glad it happened and now I'm playing Ishin and don't have to worry about future releases

          Nah, it's got a plethora of issues because of the remake. I don't get why people are pretending like there are none and it's as good as the original.
          >Visual issues up the ass.
          >Textures load in before your eyes slowly and you see people T-posing constantly.
          >AI is constantly bugging out and getting stuck not only on objects but themselves and they begin running in circles.
          I just had Sanada get stuck on an NPC, hover for a bit, and then become unable to attack me so he started pacing again.
          >Balance is a complete mess with it being normal prior to chapter 5 and then the enemy defense and damage increases the instant you get the card system.
          >Combat is slower than the original until you get your speed upgrades and then it finally normalizes.

          >When you do have the cards you completely trivialize the game despite their long reload times with things like Essence of Bumbling Fools and Essence of the Void breaking boss AI.
          >Battle Dungeons don't recharge your cards at the start despite healing you so you go into them with stuff half on cooldown, half not.
          >Battle Dungeon bosses are placed inside of main story gauntlets.
          >Battle Dungeons take three times as long to clear even on Easy because you are weaker and slower than you were in the original even with the best gear in the game.
          >Massively increased the amount of time you need to grind compared to the original because of how much the player got nerfed but the enemies didn't.
          >The Seal system is objectively terrible and worse than the Symbol system in every way.
          >People can't even use the Seal system because they're super rare and because the Enhance RNG is seeded most people will never have anything higher than a bronze.

            Oh, it's definitely not as good as the original. I was just able to look past everything except the shit localization.
            I didn't mind the changes really. The UE is fucking garbage though. Hope they keep the DE.

              I can deal with the issues but it just makes me sad that people are going to experience this as their version of Ishin and not the original. The original has its own issues too like the grind, the friendships taking up a bunch of the game, and it taking an absurd amount of time to level styles (I actually reached 25 in everything naturally in IK, even got WD and Gunman to 50 naturally) but a lot of the issues could be overlooked because of it being a good game and it having fast and fun combat with enemies that were fun to fight.

              Doing Sanada Stronghold 20 in IK when I have hours of experience of webm related in my brain makes me die inside. It literally takes me like two or three minutes to beat SS 20 due to the new armor system, the massive nerf to double shots, the cards not being off cooldown as soon as you enter a BD, and because of them being extremely dumb and adding weapon and armor drops to the BD it takes even longer to get the exclusive drops when this was like a two or three hour grind and you were done in the original.
