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

I remember waiting forever to play part 1, buying it launch day, and then bsing disappointed in the small amou t of action during the first erd or so through.

Revisionist history makes things that were just okay, seem better later in life...but a lot of people had issues with Shenmue 1 they barely fixed in part 2.

I hope 3 turns out well, but i dont know

I think revisionist history works the opposite way with Shenmue.

I'm the opposite.. I was loving all that sh*t.. but I was prepped cuz I was subscribed to some dreamcast magazine that had a big piece on it lol I remember reading about how they mocapped someone cracking open a sods and drinking it cuz they wanted it to be perfect.

I still have my xbox copy of S2 and I backed them for S3 but they sh*tted on me with the Steam/ epic game store sh*t

They advertised the PC version of being on steam... including sending out surveys and sh*t.. then they announced this epic game store exclusiveness... EGS has sh*t privacy and they were doing shady sh*t with peoples PCs

Same reason people mad over the new borderlands

Man.. I honestly can't even remember how I learned about Shenmue prior to its release, but when it came out we were all over it. I didn't have any issues with 1 or 2, minus having to get a job lol.. I was in like 5th grade when that sh*t came out.. I ain't trying to work

I fu*ks with OP but I ain't watching a 30 minute video on this trash a*s game.

The game is and always will be garbage. It's boring above everything and the ONE thing a video game cannot be is boring.

Anybody hoping for anything other than tedious tasks and boring side missions from Shenmue 3 is gonna be disappointed. The dude producing the games doesn't understand what makes gaming fun.



Quote this comment after the game releases if you don't believe me.

Its a broad generalization If I understand him correctly... This didnt effect The ps4 Backers at all......

Only Pc backers with the intent to play it on steam... Alot of pc gamers contributed to the game with the intent to play it on steam (it was a choice then) only for Ys net and deep silver to be bought out by Epic (behind the scenes)for the exclusivity for the first yr.. Ys net, and deep silver gave no notification of the deal till recently, And i'm hearing no refunds too smh...

Only a few options..

Buy it on epic store and play it at release date..

Buy a ps4 (if u dont have one) and the Game, and play it at release date..

Wait a year to buy off of steam..


Imo they should at lease honor the steam backers.. Anyone who didnt help can purch off of epic store, or wait till it hits steam.

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.

I've never seen so many lies and bullsh*t in one comment



Shenmue 1 and 2 are both fu*kin garbage games. You n*ggas are drunk off nostalgia.

Here's a list of bad sh*t about Shenmue

- Voice acting was AWFUL
- Controls were clunky
- Side missions were trash
- Main missions were boring
- Story was a*s (and predictable)


WORKING A NORMAL JOB!?!? Who the fu*k wants to get off work IRL then go home and drive a forklift on a video GAME? I had a car when the last shenmue came out. Ryo bi*ch a*s was still catching the bus.



It's all nostalgia and all yall drunk off it. We had different expectations for gaming back then, and things have changed dramatically since the last shenmue came out.

I'm gonna bump every single shenmue thread when that sh*t releases and it's wack like I predicted. I dare you fanboys to sit here and defend it.
