Shenmue 3 Looks Dated, And At E3 2019 That's A Good Thing - Here's Why

From PSU: "The fact Shenmue 3 is actually happening still elicits random ‘pinch-me’ moments every now and then. I mean, I’ve been waiting for Ryo Hazuki and Shenhua to escape from that ruddy cave during Shenmue II’s supernaturally-charged climax for 18 years. Yes, 18 years. In that time, Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended, Grant Mitchell returned to EastEnders twice, and The X Factor’s Louis Walsh somehow started to de-age. Probably got some tips from Simon Cowell on that front, but I digress."

People are crying over the platform when they should be happy it exists at all, I hope it doesn't fail because of such idiocy.

I bought the first shenmue as an import in 1999. My brother bought the pal version of 2 for the dreamcast. It's been 20 years, but I am eager to continue the journey of ryo.

I’m glad that it’s dated. Makes it really feel like you’re continuing the Dreamcast classic

Graphics aren’t everything

I prefer the "dated" look, personally, for some games.

Nintendo games preach this constantly. Doesn't stop people from trying to rip them apart.

You're not missing much. It's good, but not great...

Too British for you (apart from Buffy). Like ChrisW said though, you didn't miss much xD.
