I received Yakuza 0 as a birthday present from my wife. We both walked in knowing absolutely nothing about the game or the series; I heard the allies speak fondly of it, but I figured it would be like Japanese GTA or Sleeping Dogs. As I sit here while the credits scroll by of an over 100 hour adventure, I’m filled with just about every emotion. Joy, relief, melancholy, excitement... it was an amazingly fun and emotional ride. After spending so much time with these characters and in this world, this game has risen to the top ranks of my favorite experiences ever.
I haven’t mentioned specifics, since I’m glad I knew as little as possible going in. However, I would highly encourage anyone to pick this game up. Now, I don’t normally do this, but I have a platinum trophy to chase. Also, I have a sequel to purchase.
