I’ve been playing one of the best reasons you should have Xbox Game Pass

A year ago, I wrote about how Yakuza is the perfect series for Xbox Game Pass. Since then, I’ve worked my way through more than half of the games. I’ve experienced the soaring highs of Yakuza 0 and the shrugworthy lows of Yakuza: Dead Souls – which isn’t even that bad, really. By now, it’s safe to say I’m a fan of the series. That’s especially true since Yakuza 6: The Song of Life has, essentially, been part of my medical regimen for the past few weeks.

The mean streets of Kamurocho

Without going into gory detail, I’ve been dealing with a podiatric medical issue for the past year or so. The latest treatment method has been the most aggressive yet, and I’m under doctor’s orders to sit on my couch, with my foot propped up, for as many hours per day as possible. Apart from the gnawing pain, this might sound like a gamer’s dream come true – but trust me, it’s not. You would be amazed how same-y even really good games can start to feel after a while.

Yakuza 6 is a brawler for the most part, but it’s also a real-time strategy game, a baseball management simulator, an arcade collection, a visual novel, a rail shooter and more.
