Yakuza 0

released on Mar 12, 2015

The glitz, glamour, and unbridled decadence of the 80s are back! Yakuza 0 is a prequel set in 1988 to the Yakuza series, taking place before the first game. Fight like hell through Tokyo and Osaka with protagonist Kazuma Kiryu and series regular Goro Majima. Play as Kazuma Kiryu and discover how he finds himself in a world of trouble when a simple debt collection goes wrong and his mark winds up murdered. Then, step into the silver-toed shoes of Goro Majima and explore his “normal” life as the proprietor of a cabaret club.

There's so much to do in this game and it's all so fun to do. The satisfying and varied gameplay is complemented by the consistently engaging story, and I had a way better time with this than I was expecting. I'm really excited to check out the earlier games in this series now.

There is so much stuff in this game that it would take over 100 hours to do everything. I beat the main story and a handful of sidequest’s/mini games.

Good game Kiyrue is my goat

Top tier game.

I've never beaten a Yakuza game prior to this, I've tried before. I've had this game in my account since 2020. A good 4 years I've had this in my account, and over the years I've tried to get into it, but only this 3rd time did I really enjoy it enough to see it through to the end.

There's something about the complete tonal dissonance between the main and side content in Yakuza, going from a gripping crime drama to a series of disco quests where you dance your way to fame is a hilarious experience. The game had me laughing at one minute and feeling depressed the next.

Despite Kiryu being the main protagonist of the series, Goro Majima easily stole the show for me, my experience with the series is pretty minimal, but I was constantly anticipating the next entry in his chapters. His tale of conflicting ideals was gripping.

Yakuza 0 truly is a special gem, and I eagerly await playing the rest of the series as well.

Very charismatic characters in a story that has the right proportion of funny moments and drama.

Don't mind me I'll just be permanently joining Majima's fan club.

Personally, it is not the peak of the series like the fanbase think it is. It is painfully the most overrated game in the series.
