You may not be aware of it, but the SEGA dream lives on today. It may not be through the middling success of Sonic the Hedgehog (it'll bounce back from Sonic Forces, right?), but through the excellence shown in their very own Yakuza franchise, a series that has always been more popular in Japan than in North America up until the globally successful release of Yakuza 0 last year. A blend of over-the-top beat-em-up action and RPG elements, the Yakuza series stands as SEGA's competitor to Grand Theft Auto. The series offers a solemn, serious story not dissimilar in tone to the Metal Gear Solid franchise, with hours of minigames and distracting sidequests. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is not only an excellent conclusion to this high-quality action series, but it refines its best traits to the point of greatness.
