I started with 3 on a lark and it was such a breath of fresh air. It's been so long, I'd honestly forgotten about the removed parts in 3. I've never plat'd any of them, but spent at least 120 hours+ on each of 3 ,4, and 5. Some of the side stories, Oh my god. Funny shit. Even the transphobic stuff, which is *cough* kiiinda there....it doesn't feel malicious at the very least. Don't get caught by the marauding trans sex monster! You cannot possibly withstand her sex attack! The best transphobic humor this side of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Good times. Good times......This was mostly in 3 and 4. The character in question was treated with more reverence in Yakuza 5.
