What is a fanlisting?
A fanlisting is a website made by a fan, for other fans. It lets everyone unite as a fan of a specific topic and they can register as members to be listed. This fanlisting is for fans of Yakuza 0 (Ryu ga Gotoku Zero: Chikai no Basho), the open world action-adventure game that was developed by Sega in 2017 (2015 in Japan).
Why Yakuza 0?
Yakuza 0 is one of those games that caught me by surprise. I knew nothing about the Yakuza franchise and only decided to pick up this game because it was billed as the perfect introduction. Well, 55 hours later it turns out that Yakuza 0 is the game I always wanted but didn't know existed. An amazing story with a cast of extremely interesting and well developed characters, fabulous voice acting, slick combat that never stands in the way of the story, hilarious and touching side missions that don't drag on, mini games that are actually worth playing... perfection. There is literally nothing about this game that I would change. It really was the perfect introduction to the Yakuza series.
'A Gilded Cage'? Layout?
'A Gilded Cage' is the title of Chapter 3 and while it is specifically referring to Goro's situation in Sotenbori, I think it also applies to Kazuma who is trapped by the accusations surrounding him. It also perfectly captures the situations of a lot of characters in this game, which I won't mention due to spoilers. So I thought it was perfect for this fanlisting.
