Yakuza 3 Reviewed By 3 Yakuza Guys
Great article over at Boingboing, which is this obscure independent blog you've absolutely probably never heard of or been linked to. In the past five minutes or so, anyway.
So what happens when real Yakuza members play Yakuza 3?
I enlist the aid of a teenager to show the yaks how to actually play a videogame. Even then, it's tough going. Of the three reviewers, only Kuroishi manages to play it all the way to the end. Two of the three are missing their pinkies — in the old days, when a yakuza or his subordinates screwed up, they chopped off pinkies as an act of atonement — and this seems to affect their gameplay.
Overall, they gave the game high marks for accuracy.
"The breaded pork cutlet bento box is like mega power. More than ramen. That's accurate."
