The most overhyped series I've ever tried to play. I don't get it.
Overhyped is the wrong word. It's not a game for everyone clearly but it is a very well told story with a good amount of humor, seriousness and great characters. And a fun combat system.
But if you aren't interested in Japan culture or you don't like games that have a lot of story, it's not for you.
A game being "not for you" doesn't make it overhyped or bad. It's just not for you.
I have always been bored to sleep by the persona games for example but I put 60 hours into Yakuza zero and loved it, so it's not as simple as being for people who like Japanese games.
