Just want to shout out Yakuza 0 again. I've not had this much enjoyment out of a game's story, like, ever. Despite being just normal ass people, everyone is highly memorable. Even the pissants that only appear in one cutscene, it's very easy to immediately like them and remember them far far after their time in the story is over. I especially like the antagonists whose voice actors make them sound like they've been smoking two packs a day since kindergarten.
I've been meaning to get into the Yakuza series. Not nearly enough real beat-'em-ups these days.
Heck, I think the last one I remember playing was Canis Canem Edit, which was wonderful. (I think I like that title more than Bully, personally.)

Is 0 the first entry in the series, or is it the prequel episode that was released just recently? Would it be a good jumping-on point?

It's a prequel that came out after a bunch of the other games. Canonically it's the first game in the series. I'm a newcomer to the series myself so I can't give you the full skinny off the top of my head. I'm worried that I'll be disappointed by the other games in the series after I finally move on to those, cause Yakuza 0 seems be a highly polished gem, and I don't know if it's brethren will be able to stand up to it.

As far as beat'em ups go, you won't be disappointed. There's six fighting styles to master, all of them fleshed out and uniquely useful in their own way. A Final Fantasy 10 sphere grid for each one. The combat is very responsive and deep, honestly way more complex than is ever required by the in-game challenges. And if you happen to be a sadist there's a large large, just way too large collection of 'heat moves' where you can proc special cutscenes of brutally cathartic moves on enemies; you'll be surprised I'll guarantee it, there's more than a few that made me go "THEY PUT THAT IN THE GAME? BUT WHY?!" and I already know the reason why, because it was fucking cool.

Yakuza: The game series where you sing karaoke, run a hostess club, hang out at the arcade, show off your dance moves, and maybe do some organized crime stuff. Maybe.

Itís a prequel, but theyíre also remaking the first two games at least for modern consoles. Yakuza Kiwami, I believe itís called. Not played the remakes, but Yakuza 3 was my favourite, so maybe theyíll remake that next, even though it was only released last generation.

A certain someone is back.

However, his arguments are now no longer giant walls of text filled with hypocrisies and nonsense (what I hated about him). Instead, he brought up more-or-less reasonable stuff. Let's see how long this lasts. And that's my Happy.

Stop name-dropping people.

You're supposed to passive-aggressively allude to someone in a vague way and hint that someone should PM you to ask for the deets so you can tell them all about it.

SOMEWONE is back.  They better have packed their brain this time, because if they go and step up with that soap box non-sense Ima rip off their scalp and scoop out whatever's actually there with a sundae scooper.

Too aggressive?

I hate no one here. I am a Zen master. Until I get on Discord. Dislike a person or two there.
