This is my first Yakuza game.

I am absolutely blown away by how anti-fun these boss fights are. I have never in all my years of gaming experienced boss fights so insufferable, so infuriating, so unfair.

I LOVE getting stunlocked in a single hit while the boss's combo is impossible to interrupt. Getting my control of the character taken away from me instantly and repeatedly is so immersive. Pausing five times during a boss fight to use health items really adds a nice gameplay flow. It's so awesome how the prompt for heat moves has no audio cue while being relegated to the upper right corner of the screen, nowhere near where the action is happening. And the icing on the cake is bosses who regenerate health while they are supposed to be winded, as if the Kingdom Hearts-tier health bar wasn't enough.

These game design choices don't make sense to me. I'm gonna persevere through this shit show because they got me hooked on Kiryu, Majima and the wacky side quests, but I'm going to be cursing the fine people at SEGA every step of the way for signing off on something so uniquely aggravating.

Anyway, does it get better with the other games?

I'm thinking next I will play 0, then 6, then Kiwami 2. Is that a good order?

Or if you have any thoughts about the series you would like to share, please do.

Incredible. I just threw a chair at a boss and watched it clip through his body. I guess breakdancing makes you invincible?
>> No. 13576 [Edit]
I've only played the original for ps2 and am still currently playing 0. I've found 0 a tad repetitive in terms of combat, but the massive amount of side content makes up for that from mahjong to slot car races. It's also stupidly long with cinematic so long and so frequent they put metal gear to shame.
As for the original, I don't remember much about it. I think it didn't have much in terms of side content and was more focused on the story. I think it dragged a bit but wasn't necessary too boring, and I did manage to sit though it to the end. Played it via emulator because fucking hell the original copies are over priced.
>> No. 13577 [Edit]
I played 0 on PC and it was the most fun I've had playing a video game since I was a kid. It rejuvenated my interest in video games enough for me to get a PS4.

Yeah, Kiwami is trash. Kiwami 2 and 6 are kinda meh.

I hate what CDProjekt is doing.
Their diluted RPG formula combined with their meme reputation of "the good guys" and "RPG/PC saviours" is inflicting enormous damage to the genre.
Oh I still remember how their new game was supposed to bring RPG's back closer to its pen and paper ideal. No one remembers these announcements now.
They slid back into their wide audience milking comfort zone and plebs are gobbling it all up like hungry pelicans.
Also they have one of the world's worst actors on board now. Just kill me.
>> No. 13567 [Edit]
You say that as if they had much of a choice in those decisions.

They really had. They specifically picked a pnp RPG to adapt, they had an enormous budget to utilize and a lot of faithful fans (fanboys?) who would have accepted anything, even shit wildly straying from the mainstream.
They chose to squander the opportunity.

There's no reason for CP2077 it to be tied with CP2020 game anymore. Lore alone isn't enough to justify the connection. They could have slapped together their own standard futuristic setting and called it a day.

Years ago when it was announced it was supposed to have all that stuff cRPG's were known for back in the day- a blank slate player character, a wide selection of classes, deep and reasonably adapted mechanics.
Now it's trimmed down to 3 combat oriented classes tied to one defined player character. Who seems to be some uninteresting douchebag I have no business playing as, and have little hope of significantly altering the character to my liking.
It's shaping up to be just another "role" playing game, where you play the role as assigned to you by the devs. Where choice is possible only within a narrow scope of staying in-character.
In the predefined fucking character.

Have you ever wondered what lies at the very core of a traditional RPG? The most important thing which trumps everything else?
It's player agency.
Usually bound by rules of the setting of course, but within the confines of that world a player must have the full freedom of action. Actions carry consequences which shape everything about the world the players are in and so on. That's the whole point of role playing games.
It demonstrates to the players that they matter. That their will makes the game.

Are there any strategy games that never compromise on the scale? I hate big goofy units representing armies fighting. I want to see the whole battle to scale. The whole city to scale. Everything in full. Does that exist?

Who cares about balance? This isn't about abstract games that need to fiddle with arbitrary rules so no player feels offended, it's about simulating battle to scale. War isn't balanced.

Mod Total Annihilation with old-timey units?
>> No. 13551 [Edit]
Spring 1944 is an open source World War 2 game that is inspired by Total Annihilation.
The Spring engine was originally made for a Total Annihilation clone and there are other games using the same engine.
It's free so you can just try it.

So apparently Valve has yet again decided to ban/forbid a game from being released on Steam while claiming it "sexualizes minors" in spite of the games doing no such thing.
The most recent victim of this is The Expression: Amrilato, an educational game about a girl who finds themselves in a land where people only speak Esperanto. Before this we also had the game "key to home" which was forbidden from being released on steam for the same reason.

If people didn’t just use Chinese, Spanish, English or French and language death wasn’t common because of this, a constructed language that you can become fluent in 150 hours is a pretty interesting idea.

I don't see steam banning anime games as a problem. It will simply create demands for alternative anime game distribution platform and you'll get your shitty nukige all the same. I'd even argue that it's a good thing because the less h-game there is on mainstream platforms, the less mainstream attention is on it, which mean less people are likely to start a controversy. The actual problems with in-game content censoring because you may not be able to access it in any other way but then private companies have the right to do so.

another game people pretend is hard because they're so used to games where the only way you can die is if you play in a suicidal manner.
any game where death is possible through normal play gets an epic meme status now cause casualization is so bad and widespread it's a novelty.
doesn't compare at all to old platformer difficulty, isn't noteworthy at all.
people should stop compromising.

If you could create a VN about anything, what would it be about?

I'd either make one about living by myself in a remote place, or a historical one. I'd love to play a historical-style VN.

Something went wrong with my post so I'll try to submit this again:

I had this idea about an unsolvable "murder" mystery, I guess it could be done in VN format too:
several people die in strange circumstances and detective MC investigates.
It would be a complex sort of enigma, with lots of contradictory leads pointing to several possible suspects.
In the end the gathered evidence would not be conclusive enough to say who dun it with certainty.
It could be as likely it was all a coincidental series of freak accidents.

I came up with one scene:
Somewhere towards the end of the story there would be a sequence where something almost convinces the MC he's about to find himself face to face with the culprit.
Maybe it's night, and he's at a fresh crime scene (presumed) when he sees movement out of the corner of his eye or something.
He goes after the apparition. It's not clear if it's the killer, or if MC only sees what he expects to see, effectively chasing shadows through busy backstreets of some grimy city.
The 'chase' ends in a dark utility tunnel or something, where the detective sees a figure off in the distance, and he takes a shot.
As bullets ricochet off the walls and strike sparks the flashes reveal it was an optical illusion caused by a peculiar layout of pipes and smoke.
But still he finds something in the tunnel that could suggest someone was there just a moment ago, maybe. Or not.
