Might have to readjust to 6th gen gameplay mechanics...

Is it even possible to play them anymore? I guess you'd have to go the emulation route. Thankfully I still have my Dreamcast and Shenmue. Plus I have Shenmue 2 on the OG Xbox. Will play through both of them again before 3 drops. Hopefully SEGA releases a HD collection so more people can play them.

i'm sure Sega is getting ready to announce a dirty port of Shenmue 1 and 2 to cash in on the nostalgia fest and fools will be throwing away money to them then they realise the Shenmue games are awful and overhyped by internet.

I'mnot sure wether or notyou're trolling but as someone who just beat shenmue for the first time not even one week ago I have to saythey definitely haven't aged well. Maybe 16 years ago it was jaw dropping and ambitious but I feel as if the game tries to hard to create a deep and realistic feeling world that it ends up forgetting the most imprortant part... Games are supposed to be fun. And shenmue is not that. With that being said I will be playing shenmue 2 when it comes in the mail later this week to see if that one's better and seeing as I backed shenmue 3 I'll also be playing that when it comes out.
