People joke about Brad's Destiny obsession for a good reason.

There's a colossal market of people that only ever play one sports game and a CoD and/or Battlefield a year, and then spice it up with the GTA games and maybe an Asssassin's Creed now and then. Their tastes aren't mine, so I couldn't tell you when they've had enough, but they're freaking everywhere. I doesn't matter one bit what metacritic score the WW2 game has, because those people know what they like and where to get it. It's just not reflected in online gaming communities because people here are enthusiastic enough about video games to probably play a bit more than only that stuff.

It makes sense to me if the more fantastical CoDs don't do as well, because what all of these have in common is that they're pretty mundane settings. The most scifi whenever CoD isn't out in space is Assassin's Creed, and that's just a framework for putting you into historically accurate settings.

I've been in conversations a few times lately where relative strangers bring up video games, and every time they did it was either to talk about Destiny 1 or to complain about how CoD got too crazy with the future robot stuff. They really are everywhere, and it's the reason why I'm not surprised stuff like CoD WWII sells so well.

The combat in Yakuza isn't bad, but it might be my least favorite thing about the series. The heat moves and general brutality/silliness is great, but in general I find it tedious and tend to avoid as many encounters as possible. Especially the ones where you have multiple protags/styles.

As someone who has played a bunch of Yakuza, I agree that the gameplay can go from fun and satisfying to downright frustrating on a whim. There were more than a few times in Yakuza 0 where I got straight up stunlocked or downed in weird and confusing ways, and the battles where that didn't happen tended to be completely one-sided affairs.
