This is bumming me out, shadowman16. You are the most passionate Yakuza fan on Era and it shows with every posting you're making. Seeing you go is just sad. :( For what it's worth, outside of the gloom of some people here in this thread, I at least didn't see a single post of someone saying that long time fans are in the wrong for liking this change. Not sure about the other threads on Era, because I mostly stay away from those anyway. I do like this smaller community thread, where we can talk about everything Yakuza even if there aren't any news, sharing our passion and more. Sure, there were some negative comments in here, but it's far away from what I saw in the other threads thankfully. Without you it simply won't be the same anymore. I do get all your points and that's exactly why I only read a couple of posts on the other threads before bailing the fuck out. Personally, I'm all open for a change. The trailer looked great and I'm sure the RGG team can make a fun turn-based battle system. I hope you will return one day. :( I tried writing you a PM, because I have so many things I want to tell you, but sadly your profile only has restricted access. I hope my message reaches you somehow anyway.Well... seeing the trajectory this thread is going I think I'm done. This is all getting too depressing and I've seen several apparent "long time" fans of the series in this thread and others here saying that only new fans are happy with this change... Well that's just damn insulting, seeing as I've been playing from the beginning, and have played every game in the series under the sun (well, bar the online games, but I've at least been following the plot closely in Online).
But apparently I'm not a real long time fan, as I dare to wait and see how the game plays, rather than jump on the hate and complaining bandwagon immediately. Seriously, the doom and gloom in this thread is embarrassing and I want no part of it. I won't bother posting here again, I'll just go elsewhere, where shockingly more long time fans are at least on the fence and interested to see where the series goes.
Oh, and thanks to gachapin for all his help with various translations, info and the like over the last few years, he helped me a lot in previous games.
