he really is so fucking lame
being an evil mirror of the most boring man on Earth is not the best way to write a compelling antagonist

>>545621204
...he does want friends, though. He literally hates how everything in life is money, money, money, interests, interests, interests, he said it himself, all he craves for is people who care for him, that's why he joined Yakuzas, that's why he loves Daigo, that's why he was so delighted his assistant called him...but was then frustrated it was for something as ''petty'' as money, business.

Have you played the game?
>>
>>545622007
At least Yakuza 0, 1, and 2 didn't insult my intelligence this bad, the villains from those games felt straight out of a manly anime like fist of the north star, Nishiki was a Shin ripoff, and Ryuji was a Raoh copycat, but Mine felt like a villain from a trash modern shonen

Yakuza 7 had the best written villain. Spoilers: His bad intentions were explained to death from his parents inherently being scumbags so he inherited that to the fact that he was a man that was completely powerless and all the sudden had all the power he could want with a chip on his shoulder.

The devs actually spoke about what his tattoo was supposed to symbolise before incidentally
>Mine's tattoo covers most of his back and ends at his thighs. It depicts a kirin, a mythical creature said to appear only in the presence of a benevolent leader and become ferociously protective if a pure person is threatened by a malicious one, as befits his view of himself in relation to Daigo.

>>
>>545631134
I'm in the minority who preferred Kiryu's side of the game to Majima's, Kuze was the standout new character introduced in Zero imo
Majima had more variety in characters he fought but most of his boss fights weren't all that memorable really, Kiryu may fight Kuze a million times but each time they fight is really memorable imo
>>
>>545631217
Also Majima kicking Nishki's shit in. Nice to have that conformation NIshki's mid tier at best and was only as strong as he was in Kiwami to balance for Kiryu being tired in the narrative.
>>
>>545631559
Blame prequel syndrome. Same reason Kiryu decides to rejoin with Dojima despite the Dojima family fucking him over.
>>
>>545631636
>Nice to have that conformation NIshki's mid tier at best and was only as strong as he was in Kiwami to balance for Kiryu being tired in the narrative.
It was already obvious in 1 that he wasn't as strong
Nishiki only actually fought Kiryu for prideful reasons and not because he thought he was stronger, 0 didn't introduce that

what else?
>>
>>545631787
Kiryu literally rejoins it purely as a temporary stepping stone so he can start his own family. It's what he's about to do at the start of Y1 before Nishiki goes full retard and kills Dojima and Kiryu goes full retard taking the fall for Nishiki.
>>
>>545631887
>It was already obvious in 1 that he wasn't as strong
Yeah I know that, obvious enough from Kiryu winning. It's just that his boss fight in Kiwami would paint it as him only being a touch weaker when he's actually a lot lower.
>>
>>545631636
>A remix of his final boss battle called "For buddy" instead of "For who's sake" because Nishiki is fighting trying to protect Kiryu rather than fighting just because he feels he has to.
Pure unadulterated kino
>>
>>545621204
>FRIENDS!? I DON'T NEED FRIENDS
It was more that he didn't believe people deserved free handouts and should earn everything in life themselves, he wasn't against having friends
He was alright until the usual Yakuza endgame stupidity kicks in

They left it open considering the lack of body and identity changing plot point.

>>545633128
It could work but the damage is still going to be pretty low compared to a Tiger Drop. Plus when the gun phase starts it's not going to work anymore even if he chases you since they have to be in non-active phase to get Heat Actions to prompt.
>>
>>545633076
Daigo isn't retarded, he just has to run the most scummy criminal group as basically a toddler, the fact that the Tojo existed as long as it did is proof that he wasn't retarded when the fucking clan wants to implode every other day

After finishing Judgment it made me kind of bummed about LAD
I liked LAD but didn't totally love it, which kind of sucks since that's the real continuation for the next several games. But then I played Judgment and it felt like such a better version of "do something different with someone that isn't Kiryu"
If I had been playing these as they released, I think Judgment would have gotten me really hyped to see how 7 would turn out, since the combat and system improvements were great and really felt like they were using the Dragon Engine well, and then the turn based announcement would've been a huge buzzkill
Here's hoping whatever 8 tries is better, and Judgment 2 exists and is good
Also I liked Yagami much more than Ichiban, and the main "crew" of Judgment more than the party of LAD

>>545633807
Probably won't even appear again
>>
>>545633105
That entirely depends on what the future does with him. I don't want him to live just to be killed as a plot device in the next game, for example.

Is it now? I thought that's still the Dragon when it comes to mythical animals atleast.

He will survive and run a bar 4 games later.
>>
>>545634174
>His final words feeling like an odd last thing for a character to say
I didn't get that impression. His words were just proving that he finally accepted Ichiban's feelings and the hand Ichi was extending to him.
>>
>>545634212
Well maybe he'll change his name to be jap for number 2 as his first name then Kasuga.
>>
>>545634019
If Judgement 2 happens it'll probably end up having a different lead character unfortunately

>>545634212
I think him being a second playable character with his own party could be cool.

this. Yakuza 3 is one of the best if not the best in large part because of the final level / battle. Kiryu breaks Mine's fist with his fucking skull. It does not get better than that. Beta /v/ fags should stick to Yakuza 0 and pretending to understand Majima's character
>>
>>545633698
Though Kiryu calls him a bad chairman at the end of it all, but honestly, the Tojo Clan is insane and even before he became Chairman there were already games full of traitors and idiots messing things up, and things just keep happening, why would he expect Kazama to have a brother who is in the CIA?

The Tojo Clan sucks aside from having a few strong or nice members, i doubt Kiryu or anyone else would have really turned things around.

By 6 he outright says he and others maybe should have spent more time with Daigo teaching him stuff about the real world and almost seems to imply Daigo's stature as a Chairman is shameful enough it drags down Kiryu's own name too even if Kiryu obviously didn't mean that.

Still, come on, the Tojo Clan sucks and keeps getting involved in stuff that is way over their heads if not for Kiryu and other main characters.
>>
>>545635535
He doesn't "almost" do it. He's just momentarily overwhelmed from suddeningly being on top of the first woman he's seen in over a decade. He doesn't make any moves as if he's actually going to take advantage of her.

It's not just the Kazama thing, Tamashiro was working against him, look at how the Ueno Seiwa stuff came out of nowhere to bite him in the ass YEARS after the fact, you have his own personal secretary and the guy right below him betraying him after almost a decade of working with him, you have Aizawa and Morinaga coming out of nowhere to backstab him (Which was also decades in the making), and then in Judgment the Matsugane Family had been lying to him and working behind his back for at least a decade or two.

I'm not sure about that, I would think it's easy as a structure to say "Yagami's got a new case!" but everything in Judgment did feel built around the single plot without much room for expansion.

All they need to do is not let him sing karaoke again and I'm sure it'll work out. They got Akiyama repeatedly and he's supposed to be some high tier VA isn't he? It's not the exact same thing but still. They wouldn't spend all this time fleshing out Yagami and his crew just to go "Haha, actually Yagami flew away to his home planet so here's Yagami 2.0".

Yeah, Daigo gets a lot of shit from fans and maybe some characters, but come on, it's not as if the organization he became in charge of was composed of the smartest and most loyal people ever.

The Tojo Clan did survive for longer than they had any right to, also, Kiryu is the worst chairman considering he was only it for a really short while and his first act was to declare Terada to be his successor after like 5 minutes of hanging out and they didn't talk much at all.

I still have a hard time following the Yakuza story and all its characters and allegiances, but wasn't Terada a boss-like character form the Omi Alliance and aren't the Omi rivals to the Tojo Clan, maybe even enemies? What sense did it make to have Terada be in charge of the Tojo?

I feel like the core theme of the series is that the life of yakuza is really goddamn empty. Maybe if Yakuza 1 didn't happen and Kiryu rose up in the organization, things might have been different. Or maybe not. Maybe the true answer is that there was no way things would have come up sunshine and flowers, that even if Yakuza 1 didn't happen Kiryu still would have been fucked and everything would have been ruined. Kiryu's conflict is that he just wants to do right but the world of yakuza just refuses to fucking let him. He has to fight tooth and nail in order to MAYBE reach an ending where the absolute worst case scenario doesn't occur. It's only through great struggle and personal sacrifice that Kamurocho hasn't gone up in flames.

The world of yakuza is shit. Kiryu was never fit for it. The only reason Kiryu's managed to survive this far is due to his impossibly superhuman strength. He's a fairy tale in a world that despises fairy tales to its very core.
>>
>>545637757
Shinji trusted him and so did Kazama, and he had a debt for Kazama which he referenced in like the one or two lines he speaks to Kiryu before they get attacked.

He still is someone from the Omi Alliance and there were even more reasons for why he shouldn't have been considered, but Kiryu didn't know those, he just knew Kazama trusted the guy and that was good enough for him.

To be fair, almost everyone he knew is now dead and most of the new generation are either insane or tried to kill him, he doesn't seem to be particularly great friends with Majima yet, and he didn't want to be Chairman, so i assume he just mentioned the first name that came to mind of someone still alive that didn't try to kill him those past few days.

Which was why Kazawa didn't want him to become a Yakuza to begin with, but he wanted to repay Kazawa no matter what and saw him as a great man seemingly not aware that few Yakuza are like Kazawa at all.

He did stick with it but it feels mostly because he made some friends and Kazawa was around, let's be fair, Kazawa did want Kiryu to become a real estate agent or something else rather than a common criminal.

I genuinely think Yakuza 3 is the second best Yakuza game ever made. I can see it's flaws and I can Understand the issues most people have with it. But it has such a good atmosphere and cast of characters. It all feels very ''soulful'' I guess.
>>
>>545638314
Honestly, I think the idea is that Kiryu's refusal to rise to the top is really what causes a lot of the problems in this series. Him going to prison for ten years completely fucked everything up. He had a chance to become the head of the Tojo and it's perhaps implied that he might have been able to fix a lot of shit if he had, but he chose Haruka instead and as a result the Tojo were even more fucked. Kiryu was probably the best choice for Tojo head, but he passed the buck to Terada and so Yakuza 2 happened.

>>545637434
Sohei not needing Makoto alive was dumb (and nah, needing to deal with "making her disappear" isn't a good reason, they're yakuza and Makoto's a nobody, making people like that disappear is literally what they do), they confirmed well before that scene that there was no one else they needed to be aware of in relation to the lot and should've just killed her earlier when they had the chance
definitely not the most egregious or insulting twist the series has had but it was mainly there to force some dramatic angry Majima scenes basically
>>
>>545638025
I thought 3 was mostly fantastic for the following reasons:
- The fucking hitman substory is just great with all the different bosses to spice the gameplay and add some difficulty
- Okinawa is pure comfyness
- The minigames had characters and substories attached to them which gave them purpose and were actually fun.
- The orphanage scenes added a lot of character development for the kids and a a nice change a pace, on top of having a beautiful scenery. A well deserved break for the ridiculous story.
- The IF7 and Revelations added more fun ways of getting new moves
- The karaoke and cabaret club songs were some of the better in the series in my opinion.
- Speaking of karaoke, the whole OST is great in Y3 (D 2 A, for example)
There's a lot more to add but I'll leave it like this.

It's half an hour long, I went through that shit two days ago. Still doesn't justify it and 3 is the equivalent of a filler arc besides the Tojo bankruptcy and Hamazaki, but I had some fun at least once I got deeper into it. Too much of a slow-paced slog for its own good and what non-orphanage parts it does are brushed over so fast that it felt like the story was just half-finished, but eh.

The issue with a Rider game is not many people have a dedicated town.

I'd love to see them pull a South Park and weave The Roof™, The Pool™, The Strip Mall with Fountains and Lots of Steps™, and so on with the home base. That or we have a Captain Cop game where he teams up with that Sentai from the posters in 1.

If one were to do an open world game, i think that, sadly, a really obscure Tokusatsu series i only know about because of it's name and the fact Hideaki Anno and Gainax loved it enough to make live-action parodies would fit the bill best.

Kaiketsu Zubat(yes, that really is the name) in a more modern fashion with a different costume would be really cool as the series had a big twist, the hero would put a costume that would give him powers to fight...normal criminals in large gangs and with silly assassins, he would fight Yakuza, human traffickers, drug lords and the like, at the end even leaving a note for the cops regarding the crimes of the villains.

There were videos on Youtube of fights a few years ago, but i guess they got blocked as all i could find is a short really lousy video with terrible audio:

onomichi itself was cool
sidestories were great
best new minigame in a long time (BOOBA)
someya was cool and had an awesome theme https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6GFFd0mirU

dragon engine as a whole was a great refresher, combat took a while (til judgment) to get great but it was still a solid base and fun to mess around with in 6
also dragon engine graphics were a big upgrade and jacketless open shirt 6 kiryu is my favorite look for him

Substory. Guy gets crop circles in his wheat field and cows are being stolen from him so he asks Musashi for help. When they find one of his cows it does what you see in the gif and the farmer thinks it's UFO-sama taking them from him as a divine payment or something. As soon as the guy leaves thanking UFO-sama Musashi notices it's a bunch of idiots lifting a cow and shining a light on mirrors if I remember right so they can take the guy's cow. One Musashi beats the guys up he tells the farmer and is rewarded. Then it cuts to a scene where either the cow got actually abducted by aliens or more crop circles appear, I forgot which.

> the plot of 7 directly impacted the politican blackmailing Kiryu who was the one who put him to work
The politician died in 6, it was Daidoji. "The Fixer" is referring to the men working under him who still work in those high levels of government and want to take Ryo Aoki out of the picture. He's been dead for over two years by 7.

i think it they wanted to do the whole heavy handed "passing the torch" with the DQ cutscene, they should have just kept his chapter 14 appearance (and amon), so only seonghui and the new party see him and never get his name
chapter 12, where he's with the whole old crew at omi HQ, was the one that definitely should not have happened IMO

> he's not free thanks to them though
He's not free because of his own choices, he can't blame anyone for that. He's working with them so that he can help out Daigo, I'm assuming that was some sort of deal made so he could still keep his "dead" status and why he has to tiptoe around certain discussions in 7. Him alluding to be working for Daidoji is kind of cutting it close though.

In Yakuza 5 Daigo was one step ahead of the main villain all the time and was about win all by himself and end the game early, but then the writters remembered that the playable characters are the ones who have to defeat the villain and had him get shot out by a goon of nowhere.

You know, with all the soap opera tropes the series used, I'm genuinely surprised we never got a plot involving Kiryu's TRUE parentage being some dramatic twsit connect to a main villain
I guess once Kazama was gone, and they already pulled the "secret CIA agent twin" thing for him, it would've been hard to pull the focus back on someone kazama killed for reasons

I don't know where to place these thoughts, so I'm going to place them here
It's honestly hard to tell if 5 or 0 is better IMO
0 has the better story as well as better music, but 5 has the best gameplay overall I feel (haven't played 6 or 7 yet)

Style switching is pretty clunky (it's only better in Kiwami), and 0's upgrade system is the worst upgrade system in the entire series, though the individual styles themselves are pretty fun for the most part, and the music/story of 0 is unmatched

5's combat felt smoother overall, and the specific playstyles of Saejima/Akiyama/Kiryu/even Shinada feels more refined, and the rage arts/red heat attacks (like Kiryu's godmode, Shinada's tackle, etc.) are all really fun to use too. Beast/Breaker are hilariously broken and unbalanced in 0, yet all of the characters in 5 (except for maybe Shinada, I didn't fuck with his weapons much) feel pretty balanced for the most part, both games have great bosses too
The main sidegames in 5 I feel are better than the main sidegames of 0 as well; Cabaret club is fun and I enjoyed the story to go with it, but it can get pretty repetitive and Real Estate Royale is barely even a game, while taxi stuff/hunting/baseball/idol shit/i dont remember what akiyama got for his main sidegame are all really enjoyable in their own rights
5's story was pretty good for the most part, but I think each individual character's part was too long and it kind of fucked with the pacing, and the story starts to become a mess in the finale, the final boss being who he is in 5 is absolutely terrible and feels like one of the weakest final bosses in the entire series in terms of story (in gameplay the fight is amazing)

i still can't decide if I think 5 or 0 is better, but they're both good in their own rights i feel
thank you for listening to my ted talks

i guess it comes down to which pieces you consider more important. i consider these games pretty plot heavy, and the plot of 0 blows 5 out of the water
in terms of combat i don't really feel like the quality is enormously different between them (i also prefer 0's anyway, to be honest), but for plot i do think it's a huge gap

exactly what he was trying to teach majima among other things. Yakuza are scum that will crush anyone at the slightest hint of weakness. The only way to break out out of a yakuza's choke hold is to go for their throat yourself

Why do you think he wasn't in 7?
>>
>>545657512
Yeah. Kiryu's just something unusual. He's not human. He shows plenty of weaknesses but that's just not enough. He'll bulldoze his way through whatever the world throws at him. So they have to target his loved ones. Kiryu is someone who is simultaneously too much for the yakuza to handle, but at the same time he can't completely defeat them when they attack him. The reason Kiryu faked his death was to break that stalemate.

It just shows that even if you're an impossible invincible monster, you still can't just beat down a world that refuses to accept your existence.

Majima is 54 in 7. He still looks way younger than that though. He looks much younger in 7 than he did in the PS3 games.

No. Dear fuck no. Play 0 first, then go in order. Kiwami through 7.

0's existence makes Kiwami actually work better because you'll actually give more of a fuck about Nishiki if you go from 0 to Kiwami. Not to mention all the call backs to 0 in it.

Like. Maybe if you were playing the original PS2 Yakuza 1. But if you're choosing Kiwami. Do 0 then Kiwami.

>>FRIENDS!? I DON'T NEED FRIENDS
His entire story is that he does want friends and loved ones. He joined the Yakuza to find exactly that, but was disappointed when he discovered they were just as money hungry as everyone else he'd met along the way. Daigo was the only one he found that wasn't, and that's why Mine idolized him. On the other hand, he hates Kiryu for having a similar background but being a complete hypocrite who abandoned Daigo in the mess Kiryu placed him in, to raise and coddle orphans.
>why did Sega decide to give him of all people the Kirin tattoo?
Because he is both anti-Kiryu (they are foils if you actually speedread that parallel) and the strongest villain in the series.
>>
>>545638770
I'd agree if the gameplay wasn't so fucking shit. Enemies block fucking everything, so the only way of damaging them is either spamming grabs or abusing the Komaki parry. I have no fucking idea why they took away Kiryu's ability to break guards, or cancel his attacks. Heat actions also got nerfed super hard and deal 0 damage. The combat is just a straight downgrade from 2. But I guess if you don't care about gameplay it's pretty alright.

If Haruka weren't there, Kiryu really would have just let himself get arrested again. He'd have lost everything. Whether you like her or hate her, Haruka was the only reason Kiryu had to give a shit about anything anymore.

Lao Gui was the perfect foil for Majima. A fight against the "assassin" who couldn't bring himself to do it versus the most dangerous assassin in Asia.

i hope that final boss sequence and finale spells the end for ichiban's delusions like it seems it does.
i'm fine with them in 7, but i feel like i'm going to get sick of it if it happens in every one of his games. same thing with the JRPG stuff in general, as a lot of it feels like a perfect one time thing which would lose it's luster through reuse (they blew their loads on the poundmates characters too)
probably for the best if they want to experiment more like nagoshi said, as i'd prefer that more to upteen games which all play and feel the same.

20 million styles...
if anything, they'll do an ARPG where each style is attached to a party member you can swap to.
that feels like the next logical progression for the series, since you can incorporate the best aspects of both styles.
obviously they'd be forced to cut down on the amount of party members to maybe three additional ones, but that'd be for the best for story reasons and such.

>Yakuza 1 nishiki was definitely stronger than majima, he spent ten years power leveling because of his massive inferiority complex, it was the entire point of his fish tattoo
Just to add, Nishiki's profile in Yakuza 2 also states that he was the strongest person that Kiryu fought in that game.
Though in terms of gameplay, I found Majima's 2nd fight in Shangri-la to be way more kino.

the delusions is part of his quirk. I think it works better if he has it so it contrasts better during dramatic moments. it also helps spice up enemy variety without giving expecting too much suspension of disbelief because it literally happens in the protagonists head. it is the best way to bridge gameplay and narrative decisions, and I can't really think of any other game that does this. it's actually quite genius.

also, my personal headcanon is that he used his delusions as a coping mechanism in prison.

They're already starting to cut out the delusions as of the end of 7 (Or he can at least control them) and he can't have a party fighting with him constantly if he wants to be a "Legend". I think he'll have tamed delusions in the next game and then the game after that it's back to normal. Yeah, it's a unique quirk of his but there's only so far you can go with it before it gets to be pretty ridiculous, particularly if you're going to get away from the RPG system (Unless you tune it for an individual person or something).
>>
>>545648274
I found it fun even if it's basic but i'm just a sucker for grabs after heavy attacks and i had more fun with grab after side step than i should have. Granted for bosses it gets pretty basic with side step into combos. Stun locking bosses with my meteor tackle non-stop is funny though.

Agency. Mirei feels like a woman who actual belongs in a yakuza story instead of being a damsel-in-distress. She's done terrible things and hurt people, but makes up for it by the kindness she showed Haruka. It helps that she's also competent. I can't think of another character who went into Kiryu's house, told him straight to his face that he was a problematic father who was interfering with the growth of his kids, and got away with it. Last I that I just I love hard-working people. You could the biggest bitch on the planet but if you've earned your status, I'll respect it. Mirei wanted Haruka to chase after a dream she believed they both shared, and she put in the work for it. Even Akiyama had to give credit where it was due.

How come 3 Remastered has the highest draw distance and the biggest crowds?

>>545679158
sums up my thoughts perfectly.
there's only so far you can push it, and it's something that gets old fast. if it was always a natural part of the setting, then it'd be fine (dead souls is an example of it getting away with the zombie stuff because it's naturally a part of the setting)
ichiban's character is going to develop, and he himself is going to get stronger, so it doesn't really make sense for him to not mature and stuff.
