    Feeling the Heat, Strolling the Streets, with Spirit Like a Dragon: What Makes Yakuza

    The entirety of the Yakuza series (known as “Ryu Ga Gotoku” in Japan, lit. Like a Dragon) released to this point follows the tale of Kazuma Kiryu, organized-crime-footsoldier-turned-orphanage-runner as he butts heads with the numerous seedy underbellies of Japan. Fifteen years and seven mainline entries later, Kiryu’s story has been well and truly wrapped up....

    I am myself. But it is inappropriate for me to subjectively define who I am. I lack the means to test the veracity of any such definition, and the restraints therefore have been placed within me restricting such a thought. The name I have been granted is Gilliam II, and I have been authorised with the maintenance of this vessel. Additionally, I will deliver news to you from various sources.

    The best part of the Yakuza series is how fans always defend Kiryu using the "fact" (more info on those quotes in a second) that he never killed anyone.
    However, in Yakuza 0 he walks into a bar or hotel and some thug shoots at him. He pulls a Commando by grabbing the nearest waiter and uses him as a meat shield then unceremoniously throws the corpse as a weapon.



    Damn, Yakuza is so cool.

    I know that it rose from the ashes of Shenmue, but 18-ish years later I think it's dumb that people are even making a comparison between the two at this point. The pace of Shenmue is 100x slower and the focus is on anything but the action. Yakuza is....almost a slapstick action-comedy. I'm really looking forward to the next game where it goes full RPG. It was originally an April Fool's joke, but it got such good reception that they went the RPG route for the next mainline Yak game and I couldn't be happier.
