20 best crime video games of all time
As the title suggests, Yakuza 0 chronicles how series mainstay Kazuma Kiryu rose through the ranks of the Dojima family’s local yakuza. However, Kazuma’s story is only part of the Yakuza formula. After all, what would he be without his best friend, Goro Majima? Fortunately, Yakuza 0 also tells audiences how he became the snakeskin-wearing psychopath we love.
As with most Yakuza Games, Yakuza 0 is a mix of gripping gang drama and action combat. The story takes many twists and turns as loyalties are tested, and through it all the combat is flashy, hard-hitting, and ridiculous. Additionally, to break the gameplay loop, Yakuza 0 is full of mini-games, light business simulations, and side missions that add levity without feeling out of place. – HER
