Yes, they have a great balance and most of the content is fun, with a lot of jokes and unique things to this series.
My fav couldn't be other than Kazuma, a role model for the good person that follow his ideal doesn't mater the situation or problem he is in.
Think so too :)
My favorite characters are:
1. Kazuma Kiryu
3. Tachibana <3
My favorite Bossfight/Enemy is the golden Dragon from Yakuza Kiwami 2, Ryuji Goda :)
And the number 1 Women is hard to say... Makoto (from Zero) or the wonderful women (detective) with the tragic story(Kiwami 2), Kaoru Sayama.
I enjoyed the first two on the PS2. Fell out of the series with 3. Tried to get back into it with Yakuza 0, but I just don't find them fun anymore.
Yakuza Zero is a dark game with a emotional end. Try Yakuza Kiwami 2 or Yakuza 6 with the new Graphic-Engine ; ) It looks impressive!
I thought Ishin was great, has some of the best gameplay of the whole franchise. But I found the story to be a bit of a mess, though I do need to replay it since better guides for it have come out since. However, I found Kenzan to have one of the best stories in the series and has a pretty good game as well, since it is basically a less polish Ishin.
Also my favorite characters in the series are, Kiryu, Majima, and Ryuji Goda.
Good to know. Thanks for your opinion! Maybe..someday, i want this samurai-game too!
And great Taste!!!
