    I tried Yakuza and I just couldn't get into it. That twitter screenshot more or less sums it up. It feels hollow and stupid compared to Shenmue.

            he didn't really get "laughed off" he's just the kind of guy to talk shit all day online and then get angry when people talk shit back. he'd just rather stay in a place where his buddies will always be there to like his spergouts

      the devs don't exactly treat the brawler combat as being intrinsic to the games. hell, they switched the combat from brawler to turn-based RPG in 7 and no one except me cared.

      0 has the most issues from the ones I've played. combat is way too easy; to begin with it's immensely cheapened by the ability to buy items, but even if you're doing a "no items" run you'll still end up with a boss that's meant to be super-important to the narrative but mechanically he ain't shit (even on the hardest difficulty settings). tying fighting move unlocks to the real estate sidestories is stupid and ruins the flow the older games had, where you're either choosing to advance the story or doing the side activities at your own pace. introducing lengthy walking & talking sequences is a big step backwards from the early games that neatly separated gameplay & cutscenes.

      nah "games need to Do Better" types from Anthony Burch to Extra Credits absolutely attached themselves to Yakuza. if you think it doesn't apply to you then I wasn't talking about you

    Unrelated but I’ve seen more combat gameplay of 8 and it just looks really boring
    Pretty much just 7 with a few minor tweaks and new silly animations. Their bosses are once again brain dead damage sponges, so I’m gonna pass till it goes on sale for a fiver.

    >Yakuza makes a big deal about how KIRYU'S HANDS ARE FOREVER STAINED IN BLOOD... yet 90% of what you do in the games is Superman shit. giving you a bad-boy fantasy & washing away the nasty parts
    Knowing this board was utterly mindbroken at the sight of Kiryu having an emotional breakdown he does rise a good point

      No, we've seen him have emotional breakdowns before. That wasn't an emotional breakdown. It was just somebody's fetish.

      Yakuza tells its story one game at a time and developed a formula over consistent development periods, even with different writers and leads. Shenmue is on it's 3rd game and has barely done fucking anything in it's greater narrative that even the creator confirmed was not even halfway to the end. He doesn't raise a good point because he's comparing two fundamentally different stories and approaches while simultaneously ignoring that Shenume's incredibly story heavy approach is not optimal if you are completely incapable of actually telling it.

    >the protagonist is DEEPLY FLAWED therefore it's BETTER
    Why?

      I'm not the one who started the "Yakuza is Shenmue but better" meme, it was Yakuza fans. plus I'm not saying they're the same - I just think some aspects are comparable enough and highlight areas where Yakuza could be improved. I'm exaggerating my issues of Yakuza to rile people up; surely on Ganker of all places should get this.

      cuz you're literally an ex or current mobster in Yakuza. they couldn't even let Majima do anything bad in 0! he's still a superhero all the way who gets a little "mean" at the end but towards objectively awful people so it doesn't matter.

      • 4 weeks ago

        "playing as Majima before Yakuza 1" you'd think would entail an origin story of sorts. how did he get so fucked up in 1, to the point of threatening to slit the throat of and/or rape some soapland girl who did nothing to him? 0 answers absolutely none of that

        he didn't really get "laughed off" he's just the kind of guy to talk shit all day online and then get angry when people talk shit back. he'd just rather stay in a place where his buddies will always be there to like his spergouts

        I get angry about political shit but not in cases like this. arguing over video games is fun & I still argue here, just not with a name/trip and I'd rather do it on other boards. arguing on /m/ is barely any different from arguing on twitter

    Shenmue is different, its way more detailed than Yakuza. They really arent comparable.

  22. 4 weeks ago

    Shenmue has more attention to detail but the pacing is slower than a snail. Yakuza is more fun to play but has too much cutscenes and dialogue. Yakuza would have been able to do the entire story of Shenmue in one game because each one is so long and they wouldn't have wasted so much time on superficial activities.

    last thing, I don't actually hate Yakuza. it's just fun to exaggerate your opinions online. it is frustrating though since I got into it expecting to absolutely love every aspect of it (it looked like the high-budget Kunio games we never got) but the more I delved into the games the more stuff I thought kept it from being absolutely amazing as opposed to just good.

        Constantly doomposting about every single Japanese thing doesn't make him "right". It would be one thing if some company does something completely retarded but he constantly searches for shit that happened years ago just to say "IT'S OVER, JAPAN HAS FALLEN" like that fucking Death Stranding tweet about asexuals. It was at that point I just gave up and unfollowed him, he's an exhausting doomer, he simply can't find any enjoyment just like his other mutuals.

            Cool, if it makes you feel any better I found out about Apocalypse Zero from you and I really liked it. It would be nice if you actually talked about things you liked instead of being overwhelmingly cynical, I get that some things nowadays are straight up awful and the future isn't pretty but that shit is gonna poison you man.
