works great not only as a backstory to many of the series' best characters but is a genuinely emotionally gripping game that sinks its teeth into you and doesnt let go. in terms of games ive cried more at this one than any other game ive touched.

The video game Yakuza 0 is set in 1980s Japan and is a prequel to the popular Yakuza series. The game tells the story of Kazuma Kiryu, a young yakuza member who is caught up in the power struggle between the two largest yakuza families in Tokyo. The game is a critical examination of the yakuza lifestyle and how it was glamorized in 1980s Japan.

The game begins with Kiryu working for the Dojima family, one of the two yakuza families in Tokyo. He is sent to collect money from a local business owner, but the man refuses to pay and Kiryu is forced to beat him up. This establishes the game's theme of violence and its place in the yakuza lifestyle.

In the game, violence is not just a means to an end, but is also something that is enjoyed by the yakuza. They use violence to solve their problems and to get what they want. They are also willing to use violence to protect their own interests. This is in contrast to the traditional Japanese values of peace and harmony.

The game also shows how the yakuza lifestyle was glamorized in the 1980s. The yakuza were seen as powerful and respected members of society. They were often able to get away with murder and other crimes. This was in contrast to the realities of the yakuza lifestyle, which was often very brutal and dangerous.
