The Yakuza RPG series was published by SEGA and has largely flown under Western gamers’ radars until the last handful of years. A huge bedrock of the series is its commitment to storytelling and deep character development. For anyone who enjoys a character-driven story, Yakuza Remastered is an easy recommendation, especially as the faces you encounter throughout the series play increasingly pivotal roles with each new iteration of the franchise. Similar to a long-running sitcom, Yakuza is best enjoyed the longer you spend time with it. It doesn’t hurt that the world players explore feels developed and lived-in.

While the Yakuza series is finally getting the recognition it deserves, the game has been a quasi-satire of traditional JRPG tropes and themes since its inception. The fact that it manages to do this while still being a fantastic game in its own right should make you consider giving the Remastered Collection a shot.
