Is Shenmue II my favourite game or is Dreamcast just my favourite console?

Liam Pritchard of Brash Games writes "I was asked recently what my favourite game was. It took me less than 10 seconds to answer – Shenmue II. That’s all good and well I suppose, after all, Shenmue II was, and still is a great videogame".

Shemue was ahead of its time, even to this day there are few games that can rival its depth and freedom to explore.

Definitely ahead of its time. But that is normally a bad thing.

If you think about it, it kinda is...

Shenmue 1 & 2 even after selling rather well never made a sufficient profit due to the sheer size and cost of the project, sadly because of this the franchise got shelved and well you know the rest :/

I had Shenmue II for Dreamcast, it was one of the most boring games I've ever played.

hkgamer1089d ago

did you play the first one?

zerocrossing1089d ago

Really? wow, I mean I know it starts slow but that game is anything but boring.

You were probably too busy with Beavis and ButtHead on Mega Drive?

What a game Shenmue was, truly epic! I cant help but wonder if it still would be if it was released now. There's a lot of classic games that have been truly awesome that I have gone back to years later & it almost feels like meeting one of your hero's only to find out he's a complete twat after all.

There's a slight bit of me that hopes we never see a true Shenmue sequel in case they destroy all memories of how great it was.

it's similar to most tv series. Once you watch the final series and it disappoints you, you feel that you have wasted years of watching this series and its a load of crap.

I do believe that Shenmue needs an ending though, my gaming life would feel incomplete if i dont get to see the ending.

I finished both Shenmue 1 on my dreamcast, and Shenmue 2 on Xbox. Sucked because I understood I'd have to play 2 without my my data from 1 on my VMU memory card. Hopefully, we will see a Shenmue 3 sometime soon so I can finally fight Lan Di.

Just import the UK version. It worked with game shark. You just set it to PAL settings.

HugoDrax1089d ago

Oh! sounds good as I still have my Dreamcast console/accessories. I'll look into that thanks!

NYC_Gamer1089d ago

It sucks that us fans won't ever get to play Shenmue 3

hkgamer1089d ago

Time to start a kickstarter and hopefully they get $100million of funds.

About 500,000 people bought shenmue 2 so I guess we need each one of those people to fund $200.

:D:D

Kickstarter or an online petition, anything to see a Shenmue 3 released would help hahaha.
