Adam from NoobFeed writes - Lost Judgment doesn't have microtransactions, has lots of quality content, and an overall amazing experience so why isn't not getting more attention?
Welcome to the world of Shenmue. A developer can do a lot of things right and still get looked over in favor of something else. Either from a long running franchise or a popular casual, fad like game. That's the industry for you. But as long as you enjoyed it, at least someone played it that can tell another.
I would agree with you if "a developer can do a lot of things right" actually applied to Shenmue in the first place.
Agreed, shenmue was never a good game. Technical Marvel? sure. Engaging and fun game? Never.
This is why no one takes gamers seriously because we bitch and moan about mtx and dlc all the while the games that make the most money are those and the ones that make the least are these.
This is interesting to think about. They push these micro transactions because we keep buying it. We are literally telling them “keep doing this please”
Here we go again. We spent years supporting the Yakuza franchise only for it to be bastardized into some mid turn based jrpg garbage. Now what? We'll support this series only for it to be eventually turned into a garbage visual novel with only QTE for gameplay? ...Where is Ishin and Kenzan Sega? Ya goofs!
Exactly as a long long long time Yakuza series fan I just couldn't get into this turned based combat. I really hope for future they go back to the original combat And man we would be so happy if we get Ishin and Kenzan
They already announced going forward that the main series will be turn based and I’m fine with that.
I don't see the problem at all. The series split in two paths. Like a Dragon will be turn based JRPG while Judgement will be classic Yakuza. Both games are great in their own right for people who like each specific style of gameplay.
I don't really care if you can't see the problem. That's a you thing. The fact is that it was the Yakuza series that we supported and if it wasn't for that support people like you wouldn't have this turd based garbage. Now, all of a sudden, we need to shift our support to a second series that if it's not successful or can't sell as well as the turn based game, it'll be cancelled. And if that happens, then what? Where will that leave fans like us? Is not like Yakuza-like games are everywhere, are they? So back off, and go play the other gazillion of JRPGs that are stinking up the market place. Leave us ex-Yakuza fans to sulk, wallow in self pity and then come out and scream into the ether in hopes that SEGA grows a clue. Just hope that none of your crappy series get turn into Pachinko only games. I mean, you deserve it for being so mid, but I doubt you'll see the problem anyways. So good for you.👍
Simple, not accepting change is a you problem "Yakuza: Like A Dragon Was The Most Successful Title In The Series Internationally, Says Sega's Shuji Utsumi"
@Teflon02 "...not accepting change is a you problem." Of course it is dumbass. Did you not read what I posted or what? "Yakuza: Like A Dragon Was The Most Successful Title In The Series Internationally, Says Sega's Shuji Utsumi" This is proof positive that you either can't read or can't understand what you're reading. I literally addressed this ya' goof.
To be honest, best yakuza to me, Don't mind Judgement taking on the action game style and Yakuza going turn based going forward
Enjoyed Yazuka 7 more than any of the other ones. The world needs more turn based games not them dying out. The series needed a refresh. Still have the judgment series if you want the original combat
It doesn't really matters if you enjoyed it the most. I'm pretty sure that if Mario was turned into a Doom clone I would enjoy it more than the other ones too. But I would never advocate for one nor would I be telling the fans "Well, I enjoyed it the most." Don't be so mid fella'. But I'm glad Sega was able to accommodate you and your tastes. Good for ya' buddy. 👍 The reality is that the game was not a turd based game when we supported it and the world doesn't need a great and unique series like the Yakuza to be turned into one either. There are plenty of those games out there and there is only one Yakuza-like series. The irony to cry about TB jRPG dying out when talking about one of a kind series. Seriously. The point is that there are plenty of turd based crap out there. And there was only one Yakuza. Now, not only does Judgement somehow has to build itself up from the shadow of the Yakuza series in order to fill those shoes, but it also has to compete with the Yakuza-Lite sales. If and when Sega decides it will be more cost effective to only keep one series, guess which one will the one they keep and which one will be the one they cancel? At the end of the day, if Yakuza-Lite is cancelled, there would be plenty of games for you to enjoy out there that has the same gameplay mechanics. If Judgement doesn't make it, then that would be it for this type of game.
Didn't 7 sell and review better than 6 too? Says a lot.
The only thing it say is that Turd Based JRPGs are not dying and that they sell much better than an ultra niche genre like the brawlers. That is not saying much is it?
It says it's what people prefer 🤷♂️ Yakuza games were getting incredibly samey and I'm big fan of the franchise. Props to them for trying something new.
"So why am I bringing this up? Well if you watched The Game Awards it seems that Lost Judgment was constantly pushed aside." I don't expect better from an awards show that's shamelessly reliant on new reveal trailers for relevancy. The awards aren't the main course. They're an afterthought. I have little faith in them boosting something not already on the radar.
Agreed. TGAs are basically the Ads Awards.
Who the female actress?
I haven’t played this one but the first one was just okay for me. The tailing missions were unbearable, and the story was a bit dry. But the open world and fighting were really good.
this is significantly better than the first one. improved in combat, in story pacing and by reducing the terrible detective mini games. its not perfect and it does make some big mistakes with its side content but all in all, i enjoyed it quite a bit more than the first.
Games like Judgement are the reason why I still drop $60 on games. If the devs make a game out of passion and are honest with their intentions then they deserve my support.
Yeah, for having a meaningless title.
Finished Judgment Remastered when it was on special and then pre-ordered Lost Judgment Ultimate Edition. As much as I think Lost Judgment is way better and superior, I prefer the first one paces and storyline. When you start Lost Judgment, I felt like they really tried to give us some Metal Gear Solid and Assassin's Creed. It was nice for RGG Studio to showcase all this on the Dragon Engine in the beginning but as I know you're a lawyer detective, there was too much crouching, hiding and climbing on main missions than proper first person investigating... The game is still one of my favorite and can't wait for their next DLC and their next games to be released :)
I will recognise this game when it's on PC.
Because it's not that interesting
Totally was a great game, like every game out there ofcourse it has some flaws (mostly in the side-content though) the main story is very well executed, grounded in reality in a good way that it feels realistic and something that might actually take place IRL, the combat is great, it wasn't stretched out just to be a longer game, it's not short by any means either... all around I think this might be my GOTY from 2021 alongside Metroid Dread (For it's presentation, execution) and Returnal (For originality, flawless design, looks great, audio was great only could be a bit longer imo). The people who talk down on this game I'd like to ask, what is it exactly that put you off? Most of the time it feels like none of the critics have even touched the game, maybe at most watched a 5 min youtube video and over-analyze it to find a minor flaw they can then sprout on sites/comments like this. So honestly curious, what was it about this game that you disliked?
Played a couple of these games and wasn't into them at all.
Im not a fan of this series at all and I love the Yakuza games and loved Like a Dragon and loved Shenmue 1 and 2. But Lost Judgment, I just can't get into. I think its the main protagonist I dont like and all the gameplay and detective stuff and parts in the Court I found myself skipping as much as I could, but in the end, I didnt even get halfway through the 1st game and ive finished the games I mentioned above multiple times.
