Some of them seem more like a repackaging.

 

Some, like Yakuza 0, are getting a deep discount. I may have to bite this summer.

Never played a Yakuza game but everyone on these boards seems to really like it. Is it like a Japanese GTA?

It's such a weird thing to do in this day and age. The original Playstation Hits were great because we didn't have used game shops or online digital sales back then. Literalky the only way we'd get discounted prices at retail stores like Kmart, Target, Sears, Walmart, Toys R Us, etc. was if the MSRP changed.

 

We just dont need that anymore when we have digital sales weekly and a used game market that dictate their own prices. Not to mention games have a much, much shorter shelf life than they used to.

The only game I would think is questionable on there would be BF4. How many people are still playing that online? BF One is out and a new BF is right around the corner. Can't see too many people picking that one up for 20 bones.

 

Ahhhhh.

 

If that's what he was going for, then I gotcha, though I think many of those games have an infinite shelf life (even when servers go for Bloodborne, it's still a terrific single-player experience, for example). 

 

Online-only multiplayer games won't have that shelf life, but just about every game there, save a few, have strong single-player modes and/or allow for couch-coop.
