Aside from Tsushima, this should've been getting some GOTY awards as well. Talk about a sleeper hit, everything about this game is massive for the asking price, much like other games from this studio. Mini-sidebar: I've been homeless before and if you haven't, that's great, I don't wish it on anyone, even the people who streamed this and thought it was one big joke. Remember to read a book every 5 years and cut out toxic people from your life if they're not giving you money or food. With that said, Ichiban's the most lovable protag in any Yakuza game I've played even if hopefully only a few of you can relate as much. Majima so crazy lol the joker baby and Kiryu's a manly man who's out to make you a better man, yes, but they're both so exhausting sometimes. Ichiban wants to be a hero so he sees the world as one big RPG - he's a bro who's always trying to see the best in things and comes off goofy but endearing, the kind of guy you'd follow into battles with the Chinese mafia. However, it takes the "life is one big RPG" thing to a level that feels right at home in the world of Yakuza. This kind of meta-narrative thing probably has been done before in lesser movies and games but you really get the sense that garbage apps like LifeRPG were trying to make the idea of gaming self-improvement this accessible and cool. The story goes in predictably epic scale directions as you should expect but, if that's not your thing, I get that. Just play OutRun and darts for 100 hours instead. RGG games are like the Fast and Furious movies in that kind of way. You don't need to take it seriously at all and no one would blame you if you didn't but man is it more fun when you do.
