2. Make Like a Yakuza in Tokyo
PlayStation fans can feel like they’ve taken a trip to Tokyo after a few hours on Yakuza. This RPG action-adventure game was created by Sega, based in Japan, so it’s attention to authentic detail is most impressive. In the game, gangster protagonist Kazuma Kiryu explores the fictionalized district of Kamurocho, which is more-than-loosely based on the real life Kabukicho neighborhood, the red light region of Tokyo’s Shinjuku ward. In fact, some in-game locations are modeled after real buildings. The pachinko parlors, hostess lounges and neon-filled street scenes will transport you to Japan – virtually, at least.
