Yakuza/Ryu ga Gotoku series
Posted 6/19/08 , edited 6/23/08
I see all kinds of threads about Final Fantasy so I thought I would freshen things up with a thread about my favorite series. I loved the first game so much I imported both the sequels, even though I speak a limited amount of Japanese.

I thought the first game was very underrated and had one of coolest characters since Solid Snake. Kazuma Kiryu is the most honorable , yet vicious fighter in quite some time. He's definitely a cut of above the GTA characters. As I said, he's in Solid Snake's league, not Cloud Strife's. In Yakuza Kenzan , we find out Kiryu's great ancestor was Miyamoto Musashi, The greatest warrior of all time.

Yakuza 2 is finally being released here in America (And in Europe) on September 9th. So I'm hoping to convert some new believers and get them to purchase the game so we can get a western release for Yakuza Kenzan.

So, those of you who played the first game (or the sequels) list some of best moments of the three games.

One of my favorite scenes was from Yakuza One, Where Kiryu is on the roof and breaks from his normal stoic self and roars at the gunman who kills two of his friends. Just a fantastic character moment.

Here's the trailer for Yakuza 2

Also here is a taste of Kiryu laying down some beatings

I enjoyed the first game, and the live action movie was eerily faithful in a way. Can't wait to play the others.

I loved the live action movie as well. Kitamura Kazuki pulled off Kiryu well. I could have done with out the subplots with non-game characters though.

I bought the game when it came out and still haven't played it, I am going to have to play it and then talk about it. However from the feedback and looks of it, it really looks like a Great Game...

Hey, make sure that in Chapter 5, you start to go see the old man for training , after the tournament. His moves he teaches you will be needed, trust me.

That's awesome,man. Make sure you buy Yakuza 2 in September. Kiryu's cooler than Cloud Strife, no matter what fanboys or fangirls say.

He is cool.
And I'd probably be the guy camping out in front of the nearest gaming store waiting to get it.
