Am I not seeing it or are you missing Yakuza 4?
Yakuza 3 was probably my least favorite and if that was your first Yakuza game then that would've been the worst to get introduced to. Yakuza 4 is currently my favorite and seeing as you loved it too then there's definitely a good reason why Y4 was really good. Yakuza 5 isn't as good as 4 but better than 3 lol
Yeah, 3 was my actual intro and yes 5 is better than 3
