YOU (South Africa) - - LEISURE - – GARETH SEILER

Plat­forms: PS4, Xbox One

There’s noth­ing quite like the Yakuza se­ries, and ev­ery se­ri­ous gamer should try it out at least once.

While most open­world games try to oneup one an­other in terms of size, the Yakuza se­ries has re­mained small, fo­cus­ing mostly on a sin­gle town and well­told sto­ries.

Kiryu Kazuma has made it to the top of the un­der­world, but now he’s try­ing to get out. The last game in the se­ries is both the end of Kiryu’s story and a cel­e­bra­tion of it, and it’s a beau­ti­ful send-off for the char­ac­ter.

Sega is in the process of re­vi­tal­is­ing the Yakuza se­ries with a re­make of the first game as well as a pre­quel.
