The Yakuza series is known for the crazy amount of side missions available, and the fourth installment doesn't disappoint in this regard. There are six different types of time-wasters in the game—pachinko, fishing, table tennis, hanafuda, karaoke and a strange massage minigame in an onsen bath—which are a nice distraction away from the dramatic plot. Even better is that because the game is set up as a sandbox, you can head over to the pachinko machines and gamble your virtual life away any time you want. Way to teach ’em early, Sega!
