Japanese YouTubers KMZW Isolation recreated parts of 'GTA' and 'Yakuza' in real life.

If you’ve ever wondered what it would feel like to be Michael from Grand Theft Auto 5 or Kiryu from the Yakuza series, Japanese YouTubers KMZW Isolation have got you covered. In an amazing recreation of key gameplay mechanics of these games, you can see how the games would look in real life.

Set in the streets of Tokyo entertainment district Shibuya (where the Yakuza games are based), the main character picks up objects, checks a locker, changes clothes and gets into a fight exactly like a video game character. The parody even copies the distinctive cinematic angles from the typical open-world game cut scenes and sneaks in an Easter egg from Metal Gear Solid.

Here's hoping they do Bloodborne next.
