Why does the U.S. Playstation store discount every Yakuza game EXCEPT 0? I'm waiting to start the franchise with 0 specifically because it's the first in the timeline. But it never gets discounted.

Play it in the chronological release order instead (though you can obviously substitute Yakuza 1 and 2 with the Kiwami games). It'll be a much better experience.

So 1,2,3,4,5,0,6 instead of 0-6?

I've only played 0 and 1. I would not listen to him and I would play 0 first and then 1. Playing it in reverse order would have ruined 0 for me. Play 0 first and then 1. 0 is only $20 and I can tell you right now it felt like I was ripping Sega off.

Are you sure about Trails of Cold Steel? A different site said they weren't on sale.

Yes both 1 and 2 are 50% off! I just bought both and also the season pass for nt dissidia, maxima dlc for world of final fantasy and persona dancing all night edition all 50% off! Edit. Cold steel games you need ps plus for the discount

I don't have PS+ so maybe that's why it doesn't come up for me.

Yeah, exactly. It's the perfect order to play them (intended order, too), and it will likely make you appreciate 0 all the more.

I'm all for welcoming opposing opinions but when you've only played 2 out of 7 games and say "don't listen to him" regarding which order to paly them in it's kind of hard to take you seriously.

I also would go with Yakuza 0 first.

That's fine but there is a key reason I would play 0 before 1 and 2-7 couldn't possibly change that. 

Spoiler!
IMO 0 sets up the relationship between you and Nishiki and makes 1 so much better because of it. Trying to imagine playing 1 without knowing the real bond you have with Nishki just doesn't make 1 nearly as good as it was playing it after 0. Sega just did a magnificent job at setting up 1 with 0. I couldn't stop rushing through the story in 1 because I wanted to know what happened to my boy Nishki. It wouldn't have meant as much to me without 0.

Now if you have reasons for why the original way is better I'm willing to listen to them. Also almost everyone recommend playing 0 first. From gaming websites to reddit. It's the most common choice. They even did a poll and 0 won with 60% of the votes. Also when you say it's the intended order did you read something straight from dev or are just assuming that's the case because of the order they were released?
