9 Video Games Where You Lose No Matter What
Yakuza 0 is the fantastic prequel to the entire Yakuza series. In it you play as a young Kazuma Kiryu first starting out in his days as an enforcer for the Dojima clan.
He gets caught up in a criminal plot involving real estate, assassination, and disco dancing. Or, well, something along those lines. In between the fist fights and karaoke the ultimate goal of the game is to have Kiryu, and his unknowing compatriot Majima Goro, survive and discover the truth behind the plot to frame Kiryu and murder a blind woman.
But in the end, no matter how much money you've acquired, how many women you've dated, how many games of darts you've won, or how much office space you've bought and rented out the storyline always progresses to the same ultimate outcome: The first Yakuza game.
In Zero you solve the property problem and the three jerkwad lieutenants fighting over your adoptive father's position as second-in-command to the Dojima clan all wind up either dead or in jail, and you save the girl. But the douche behind it all, Dojima, comes out and sexually assaults your sister, which you go to jail for in Yakuza 1.
Tough break, hero.
