Probably the first time a ps+ game was actually on my list. Will probably grab Kiwami.
You have to play Yakuza 0 then.
It has some long ass cutscenes but damn, the story is so fucking good. The game is easily one of my favorite games ever. I actually think of Yakuza 0 as the most complete game ever made. Tons of mini games, tons of side missions which all have its own little stories, 2 campaigns that you play simultaneously, fishing, erotic videos, combat that’s not garbage, RPG system… Honestly, I hope I’ll never finish that game. I love it.
Oops, nvm, I’ll be playing this version:
Just play them in order. You can start with either Yakuza 0 (Prequel) or Yakuza Kiwami (the actual first yakuza game). After that, Kiwami 2, Y3, Y4, Y5 and then Yakuza 6. Personally, I’d go with Yakuza 0 first. Everything began in Yakuza 0 after all.
Kiwami 2 is before the other numbered ones?
how does Yakuza stack up against Sleeping Dogs? similar or diff?
Pretty similar gameplay wise. But Yakuza games are so much better than sleeping dogs in terms of storytelling. And I liked sleeping dogs.
I’ll have to reorder my list then.
Really? Sleeping Dogs story telling is pretty awesome, so that’s pretty compelling.
Are 3 4 and 5 remastered? Or ps2/3 only?
Try it out. You’ll be okay with playing Kiwami as the first one but Yakuza 0 is a damn good introduction to Kiryu and Majima and their stories.
The only negative thing I have to say about Yakuza 0 is that the cutscenes are long as hell. But the story is so damn good, I don’t really give a damn how long the cutscenes are. Also the voice acting is just top notch.
These three games are getting the remasters next year. I believe it was March 2019.
What I’ll do then is after I play each one, I’ll throw the rest of them back to the bottom of the list. That way, by the time I get to them, they’ll be remastered.
