Watching Gotta God Hand has made me super interested in that game, but also I think that without a ps2/or ps3 I'd have to emulate it so I am torn right now about what game can fill that gap. I watched all of Beast in the East, and while I liked a lot of it, the frustration Dan had with the controls makes me cautious about Yakuza 0. I have a gaming PC and an Xbox One X. Can you fine folk point me in the right direction?
Yakuza 0 is great but I dont know if it's worth getting for the fighting mechanics alone which are fine, but not great.
Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise is out in a few weeks and that is probably the closest you can get to God Hand and it's made by the same team as Yakuza. (theres a demo out atm, but again, the combat isnt as good as God Hand)
EDIT: Didnt realise the new FOTNS was a PS4 exclusive, my bad.
Are you interested strictly for the beat em up mechanics? Then God Hand is definitely the deeper and more versatile game just for fighting. It's also much harder and has a steeper learning curve by country mile, but if that's what you want, then it's the way to go.
Yakuza is a much better overall package, but the combat is only a small part of it. And it gets repetitive after a while since you have pretty limited options. But it's easier to get into and very flashy from second one, so you avoid the stumbling around and being a failure in God Hand for the first few hours. :P
Though the real answer here is to go play Bayonetta or DMC 3/4. :DD
