I'll have to give it a try when it gets a sale, Only thing is that old style map design puts me off.
I'd suggest Yakuza 0 then, even though it's not on the new PS4 engine.
If you can spare 6 minutes to listen to this guy (maybe download it as an MP3 and listen while you're out and about) describe his thoughts on the game and in particular the side content. The amount of time he spent just racing toy cars may sound crazy, but I find that it's common for Yakuza playthroughs to have very long save file hours clocked in because of things like this.
If you don't have time to listen to it, then Tl;Dr, it was his first Yakuza game, and its one of the best games he's ever played. "The amount of time effort and care they put into the side quests and mini games is second to none. There are mini games in Yakuza 0 that rival actual games."
