    Anyone fans of this series here? also known as Japanese GTA in the western market though why the comparison i dunno. we all know japanese GTA is sleeping dogs

    I started playing 4 on ps3 few years back, utterly in lost because never played anything on the series before, also SEGA was known to refuse to localized 5 in english for along time.
    when this series hit PC, i tried the game again because of 60fps.
    6 in the series 1 spinoff in english. currently playing the 4th.
    Also this game story is a unique one, all serious in main story, downright foolishness in sidestory.
    bit of screencaps

    I've played yakuza zero, kiwami 1 and 2, yakuza 6, and currently playing through yakuza like a dragon. Also played the spinoff judgement which is great also. Great franchise

    Played kiwami 1 and then started on Zero but only got a few chapters in.
    Not in a bad way.

    Went on to kiwami two this past week and absolutely loving it.
    Can't wait to play through it all

    Can't say I'm a fan, played the one with the wee blind girl, but not for me.

    Was OK at best.

    that blind girl story iirc was from zero.
    storywise its good, but the engine is old, the same as 3 but more polished like 5
    a good entrypoint might be 2 and 6 (new engine, more engaging gameplay and minigames)

    1 year and still not finished with the 4th.
    got bored if you binge playing yakuza series.
    the minigame bit samey after awhile.

    currently playing the spinoff series judgement
