    So I haven't saw any of those video essays on Youtube about how good this game is and how 99% of people won't play it, it just made me curious.

    Then I saw the same arguments on Reddit and I said ok time to try this game.

    SO I got the game of the YORhA edition and I don't get it what's so special about it?

    Sure the combat is real nice but I just spent last night 2 f***ing hours running around an abandoned looking semi-completed map that looks like a Garry's Mod map draft doing nothing but fetch quests (go there destroy robot and come back with items)

    Am I too early in this game?
    Also why the f*** is mostly everyone in this game hot af? Aren't they androids why are they designed with big booty thongs and s***


    UPDATE ON PAGE 3

    Big Booty Thongs & S***

  • You are too early in the game. You really need to get further in, it honestly keeps getting better and the game doesn鈥檛 actually end when you think it does, thats when it gets better, and it just keeps on getting insanely better. Seriously its one of the GOAT games.

    lol, idk man I always had a lil issue with these games, they run smoothly but they seem empty in visual details. Like in that abandoned city level (first one I guess), there are soooooo many fake doorways at the base of these buildings, just to make you waste time into checking all of these? come on man..

    I chalk it up to yoko taro being a trickster. The game is pretty quirky. Just keep playing, it heats up

    I barely played any of it, I only finished A and just started B. But movement and combat feels really great to the point where just running around feels enjoyable, amazing soundtrack, the way the game seamlessly blends different game genres together is insane and apparently the plot is strong with the game actually having a message

    Now what's really puzzling to me is why some other games from around that era got more praise and attention Yakuza 0 and Persona 5 have more blatant and bigger flaws imo that they never got criticized for

  • i hear you. love Nier Replicant, but have never been able to make it halfway into Automata cuz it just feels so janky and not fun to play imo

    For what? I've mostly seen people who don't like turn based combat say they just can't do it but they still rate the rest of the game

  • i wanna love the game but i have similar issues with the beginning

    but the barren landscape is interesting to me and makes the landscapes filled with npc鈥檚 and visual details that much better

    keep playing it. update the thread when you complete endings A through E

  • I enjoyed all of it but the major impact comes from playing through all the endings. The game hasn鈥檛 even started until you beat it for the first time and find that it continues, over and over again from completely new perspectives, continuation of the story and new gameplay elements. It鈥檚 mad.

    The main one I've seen is that the main antagonist of the base game (and honestly, most of the antagonists in that game) aren't too compelling. I think this is a really valid complaint, but it never bothered me. Royal's antagonist more than makes up for it though.

    Also see that people aren't a fan of the cast and how they don't really feel like close friends compared to something like Persona 4.

    Another big one I've seen is the length of the game, but you're playing a JRPG, so you can't really expect it to be too short lol. Think it's a matter of preference though. I put 100+ hours into both playthroughs of P5 and P5R and didn't want those games to end.

    tbh i dont take any yakuza game seriously, mostly just mindless fun with cheesy but generally good stories

  • It鈥檚 the narrative. It takes three playthroughs to see the whole story. The game literally changes on each playthrough.

    Also, the combat is a great example of low skill floor/high skill ceiling. You can easily get by just button mashing but there鈥檚 a lot of finer points to it that require practice.

    The soundtrack is also gorgeous.

    Yeah, length is one for me. I was using that fast forward button a lot towards the end of my playthrough, because there's just a lot of little things that add up to take a lot of time. Those cutscenes went on forever because every single member of the character had to give their input to say the same thing I also found the characters annoying. I just wanted Ryuji, Morgana and Yusuke to shut up whenever they spoke

    Some parts of the plot didn't really make sense and the explanation boils down to BS like "Metaverse", "Cognition", "Change of heart". The game actually employed some very interesting psychology concepts, but then they went too far with the fictional concepts which let them do whatever tf the writers wanted with no rules and then Morgana just goes on a rant saying nonsense to rationalize it

    I agree with that criticism, I think they shot themselves in the foot by having that teacher be the first palace. He's extremely morally reprehensible and his transgressions feel closer and more personal to the group. From there, the Phantom Thieves' targets get bigger in scope, but it's not really connected to them anymore. I thought the game was going to take an interesting twist and question whether The Phantom Thieves were doing the right thing by changing who people are and maybe make them show how their own egos were out of control. But nah, that plot point wasn't entertained for too long

    I'd give this game like a 8, not 9 or 10 like most people were
