People have to complain to counter act that massive influx of idiot gamers that just eat whatever shit pie developers and studios crap out in front of them. If people didn't complain we would all be playing NMS for years right along side the martian.
The upcoming game is a remake of Yakuza 2 built in the 'Dragon Engine' used by Yakuza 6: The Song of Life.
It features an additional “Truth of Majima Goro” scenario in which Majima Goro is playable, plenty of never before told stories, and completely new voice actor castings.

Definitely looking for forward to Yakuza 6 despite some of it's apparent flaws (more so in the narrative rather than game play. The game play looks solid and it seems like Yakuza Kiwami 2 is going to maximize the potential of what Y6's engine has).
Jo Amon is as hilariously crazy as always.

defo cosign Y4 being when shit got real, like good to play and to be invested in the mechanics. Obviously you need to get Y1 - 3 for the full manliness effect of Kazama but play style wise, until now i was happy to skip it, just really disappointed Y1 didnt hold me better. That said could be me I didnt think shit of Horizon Zero either and dudes jerking each other off about it.

I can get behind that.
The storytelling is really ass in that game and the story itself isn't that interesting to begin with.
Y2 is better in that regard. The story itself is solid, although nothing special but they do a much better job at establishing the characters and making you give a fuck about what's going on.
But honestly everything else is so rough in that game:
The frame rate sucks, the mini games are hella fucking annoying, the fighting system is ok but there's so many bullshit fights and the boss mechanics are underwhelming or non existent.
So I basically rushed through Y2 on easy just checking out the story, but I can imagine myself doing all the side shit and having fun with the game when Kiwami 2 comes out.
The way I see it now, is that from a modern perspective, the Yakuza series gets playable and fun to play from Y4 (excluding Dead Souls) onwards. So they did a good thing in making Kiwami even though it could be more true to the original instead of shoehorning Majima in.
