Still 2 of my favourite games of all time. Hopefully the finally release them this time. Can't believe it's 17 years later and I'm going to have the full complete trilogy on my PS4.

Do you think Shenmue 3 will suck?

Why did Shenmue fail?

They blame the premature failure of DC and the lack of success of Shenmue 2 in Japan on 360.
That is BS in my opinion.

I think there are a host of reasons but if I would pick one horrible voice acting would be at the top of the list and so far I have seen no indication that it would be any better. Shenmue 3 development is reportedly taking place in a bubble and doing their own thing...

These HD remasters will review poorly and I expect 3 to get average scores at best. I don't care, I loved them and I want my ending.

Lol at blaming the voice acting. You have an obsession with it. I agree it wasn't particularly good but that was pretty standard for the time. People weren't choosing the PS2 because Ryo sounded like a plank.

But they would have been more inclined to buy if Shenmue 2 didn't sound so bad...

I am a premium backer in the game but I've not been able to get a response from the dev team. I am trying to organize people at Sega Nerds to start a campaign urging Yu Suzuki to get the voice acting right this time.

I only played Shenmue 2 on Dreamcast with the Japanese voices. Can't comment on the English one at all. Hopefully these remasters have dual audio.

That would be like blaming a 2016 game's poor sales on the Playstation 5. This is your final warning before a temporary ban is put into place.

I'm guessing (hoping) he meant the blame is on poor sales of Xbox consoles, not Xbox 360 consoles.



At any rate the reason the game failed is because it's just not that appealing to your average gamer. I really like the game personally, but objectively it's like GTA but you're a good guy who can't shoot anyone and instead of stealing cars and killing prostitutes you have to go to your job moving boxes around with a forklift. I don't think most people, if exposed to Shenmue, would really find the gameplay appealing. The freedom you have in the game is a great concept, but the gameplay wasn't really there to back it up, so it just appealed to us nerds who appreciated the engine and the concept behind it.
It's thinking...

You are correct. My bad.
