And it’ll remain tragic since they fu*ked over their kickstarter supporters lol

Genesis will always be the GOAT console to me.

Sega just never capitalized on that success and let Sony take their niche in the market.

Every game Sega had, Sony had. Virtual f*ghter vs Tekken etc
Virtual f*ghter was horrible.

Amazing game.

Does a good Dreamcast emulator exist for PC? I would love to finally play that game through fully lol.

That damn game made Sega go bankrupt because they wasn't aware of how much when into the creation of it. The money they spent making it they couldn't make back by way of sales.

To you but Playstation 2 is the best and that could be backed up by sales statistics.

Playstation 2 is the undisputed champ and took gaming to the next level if you ask me.

Edit:Also Dead or Alive > Virtua f*ghter

Dead or Alive should have been a Sega exclusive but they didn't buy up the rights.

Ppl keep crying because it's not on their favorite store either buy it or don't or better yet make sure the devs get a better cut of revenue

n*ggas donated what they was gonna pay for the game anyways lol.

The narratives behind this game are hilarious
I lurk on the official shenmue fan forum and a lot of those dudes donated several hundred to thousands of dollars. On top of that, many of them have preordered 4, 5, 6+ copies. I saw one dude say he preordered 13 copies

Shenmue was an unbelievable game. I liked how emotional and melancholic it was, the music really set that tone. Ryo wasn't angry and full of vengeance he was sad, depressed but was hopeful and kept pushing to find to find Lan Di and bring honor to his family.

It was immersive and fun. I can see people being upset by the lack of action but it was more than that. 80's Japan looked so dope. Graphics were ahead of it's time. Game was incredibly expensive to make and Sega ran out of money and the game literally bankrupted the company. Shenmue had the potential to be the GOAT game series, up there with Final Fantasy but couldn't. Dreamcast didn't sell well either, so it was impossible to make a profit because there weren't enough consoles to support it. Shenmue is the GOAT that's not the GOAT.
Well said. Lotta people not feeling this y’all dont know this game was dope when it came out. Immersive as fu*k you were living an actual life in the game.

We didn’t get get sh*t done for days lmao. We just passed the Dreamcast controller and opened every drawer and cabinet we could. Called phone numbers, raced forklifts. sh*t was fun as hell then. It’s comparably trash now, but it was unthinkable then.

Shenmue creator wanted to drag the story on like past multiple games deep. Story wise he never intended for you to caught up with Lan Di until maybe 4 or 5 games in the way he originally pitched it.
