Haha, I am a big fan!

I own them all, from zero to six, though I have played only 0, Kiwami/Kiwami 2, 3 & 4.

I don't own the most recent "like a dragon" - though I plan to buy that in the future.

My favourite character is Goro Majima.

I own them all too! :D I think so far my favorites are Yakuza 0, Yakuza 3 (love the Okinawa setting), and Yakuza 4.

I think my favorite character is Shun Akiyama. 8) too bad he never gets enough screen time lol

Have you ever played Yakuza Dead Souls? I dont get why people hated that one so much? It combined two of my favorite things: Japan and Zombies! :mrgreen:

No, haha.

I have played all the Yakuza games via Steam/on the PC.

Is that a console game? I haven't come across that one.

Yeah it was released for the PS3 as a spinoff game. They also made samurai-themed spinoff games but unfortunately they were never released outside Japan. :( :(

Here is the intro to Yakuza Dead Souls.

And this was technically the first game where we got to play as Majina btw, NOT Yakuza 0. :lol:

You also got to play as Akiyama, the villain guy with blonde hair from Yakuza 2 (I forget his name), and of course Kiryu. :)

I'd definitely have given it a try if I had a Playstation 3!

Oh noes, a missed opportunity for Yakuza. :x

Yeah also it's like they threw the monsters from Resident Evil and Left 4 Dead all together in a Yakuza game. :lol:

Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t one of them being localised?
