I hear a lot of good things about Yakuza 5. Is it worth jumping on with this game if I haven't played the previous ones?
>>
>>323684250

Is there going to be a physical release of this thing? I really don't want to buy downloadable anything if it can be avoided at all.
>>
>>323685053
I doubt it. It only got localized with help from Sony due to popular demand. The games don't sell well in the west so it's just cheaper to sell it on the digital store.

You should play the whole series, you're doing a disservice to yourself by skipping most of it. Specifically, 5 doesn't give you a review of the previous games either, like all the other games do.
If you're lazy, you may as well start with 4. And as bad as the plot of 4 is, at least it doesn't have the pacing issues 5 has.
>>
>>323684250
At least play Y4. For now it's second best entry point in the series, has recaps of earlier game and story is more independent from previous games.
>>
>>323686415
>recaps of earlier game
Meant "games". Recaps of 1, 2 and 3.

Read this. Try not to play in reverse order cause the game mechanics get better every game.

You know how a lot of people start threads with
>want to play game x
>remember y
I feel like Y5 is this. It seems like there is a "y part" for everybody. You may like taxi stuff, but then there's hunting, you may like hunting, but then there's the idol part, you may like the idol part, but then there's something else you have to play through at least a bit. It's great that there's so much content, but the pacing man...

I don't know if i have it in me to play through 5 again

I don't really understand. If you play story only there's very few of hunting\taxi\idol\baseball stuff. You just go two or three times hunting with Okudera and just dance two or three times with Haruka (and you don't even have to win with her), so there's nothing really forcing you to play these parts. Do it if you enjoy it or just rush through it if you don't it wont take much time.

Shinada's chapter was the best part. Surprised he ranks so low in popularity

It's a damn good game, but no. You should, at the minimum, play Yakuza 4 first.

But then we already would have know about Daigo and where he was.

I think one way of fixing that, and making the game more interesting to play through, is making you not play a chapter with only one character. Make you change characters more oftenly.

>>323696653
I played through in hard, so if i wanted to get the plat, I'd have to play it two more times. Man that prison escape takes forever.

Reminder to use R1 + X to skip regular text, although when there are animations it doesn't work.

>>323695357
Shinada's chapter pisses me off because it relies on Shinada being poor and unable to earn money. Then you start beating up thugs and end up more than enough money to pay his shit off by the end of chapter 2.
>>
>>323695357
The problem is, while he is a fun guy, he isn't that important to the plot. In fact, if it wasn't for his boss being nagged by that Omi Alliance 7th chairman he would have no reason to go to Tokyo and thus helping making a dream yet not Haruka following up by quitting right on stage and destroying that feeling of others who don't have a dream of their own to have hope which was what was being preached throughout the game.

Oh I know, I hated that as well, but his importance and disconnection to the plot hurt the game and its finale with him just being there. Without that hostess club I never would have felt even an ounce of camaraderie with him there.

Yeah I mean I love the character, just wished he was more important and they did a better job building up the relationship between the characters. He just drops by Akiyama's place and when Kiryu asks him who he is later, he just goes "Huh? Oh yeah! Uh, he's an acquaintance by chance, meet Shinada, an ex pro base ball player."
"Heya!"
And that was it, Kiryu even thought he was a schmuck for some reason though changed his opinion of him.

The reason given was that Kiryu would "stand out too much" wandering around at the stadium + Shinada already knew his way around the place

Most people suggest you absolutely should, as 2 is incredible.

If you cant emulate it or cant buy it, just start with 3. Its the weakest in the series (at least for the English release), but it has a recap of 1 and 2.
