It's amazing really, and testament to what a great series it is, that I hated the club management stuff and pocket racing and still absolutely loved the game, whereas you've spent hours and hours enjoying it! For me it was the main story that was the attraction, but there really is something for everyone. I don't understand how these games have remained quite a nichè product and not really broken the mainstream (although yes, they are more popular now than ever, you're not going to see Gary from accounts talking about it at work on a Monday morning). Such a fantastic series. I can't wait to get on to Yakuza 3 when I've got some cash.
Well the great thing is that these are almost games within games with how involved they can get but since they are not really required to finish the game you can ignore hem and still have a good time. While I do dig the main story a lot (which is very compelling like all great crime dramas) it is the various substories that I really adore which can range from complete daftness to genuine tearjerkers. But absolutely agree that this is a fantastic series and one that I plan to return to in the future. However, they really are gargantuan games so I will space them out to every few years or so I think! The best thing Sega has done in years imo.

FYI, I found Yakuza Kiwami 1 and 2 far shorter than Zero. 2 is my favorite so far, the story is brilliant.

Need to go back and finish 2. Think I'm midway through

94 hours on MGSV The Phantom Pain and I didn't even get to the end.

Darkest Dungeon is the game I've played the most of this year (over 100 hours) and its certainly my favorite new game I've played for the year. I did go back to a game I like more but beat it in a previous year which was Furi. Went to S rank the normal game and defeat the DLC boss. That guy may very well be the longest I spent on a boss in any singleplayer game ever.

Most played game this year is probably Bloodborne. Got about 110 hours on my main character which is a strength/ arcane build in NG++, taking that one through the chalices and going for Platinum. And about 15 hours on a skill build which is now up to Mergo's Wet Nurse and just started into the DLC.

Most played through game, definitely Sekiro. After thinking I'd never beat Sword Saint Isshin, when I finally did I just kept going through new game cycles, addicted to the combat and rhythm of the game. Ended up playing through four times, getting all the endings. Don't think I have played a game through repeatedly that many times since Dino Crisis 2 when I was a young'un. My first ever platinum as well.

Incidentally, the best film I experienced on the big screen this year (indeed one of the best I've watched all year on any format) is Birds of Passage and it's coming to Netflix UK next week. It charts the brutal rise to prominence of Colombia's Wayuu tribe as they become involved in the region's burgeoning marijuana trade in the 60s and 70s. It's a gangster film like no other. Definitely one to watch out for if you're a subscriber.
Sounds interesting. Is it in English or Spanish? I only ask because that decides whether it's something my girlfriend will watch with me or one for myself!
