How did I miss this thread???
Oh yeah, Shenmue rates as one of my all time favourite games. I bought a dreamcast just for this game. Legendary and ground breaking. Loved it! I had Shenmue 2 on both DC and Xbox, again, I really enjoyed it.
It was a real pity Shenmue 3 didn't make it...I really wanted closure on the story.
Long did I hold out hope of the series making it to the current generation of consoles in full (as in including the first two as well aas the new one), but that hope is long since dead which is a real pity since it was building for an epic finish.
Sega and Yo Suzuki...I lost faith when you didn't finish what you started...shame on you.
