If being a "real fan" of something means I have to reach the levels of fanaticism and bleeding passion seen on this website, then I've never been a "real fan" of anything in my life.

When I found out Shenmue II wasn't being released on the DC in the US, I was in line at FuncoLand waiting to ask an employee why. I sent a letter (you know, written by hand) to Sega requesting a release. I've been a fan since 1999 and a sporadic visitor of this website since 2002.

Someone has a lot of time to waste debating with Shenmue fans...

I'm going to take a very wild guess and say your definition of "a lot" differs heavily from mine.

That's the same argument many users here have been making, we are waiting and hoping for a Shenmue 3, but that doesn't mean we are somehow stagnant in life, listlessly drifting by in some delusional dream until Shenmue 3 releases and saves us. It is a small but significant part of who we are as Shenmue fans. I would like for you to elaborate, what is the end game of this topic? If it had gone as you anticipated what was the ideal reaction you were hoping to see?

The same reaction people hope to see when they post a comment saying "PC Master Race" :D But going back to that previous idea Wolfgame stated; it's just one part of our lives. It's not something that encompasses our entire being and that's all we live for. There's nothing wrong with campaigning for something you like or believe in.

I'm discussing my opinion and predictions on a topic I occasionally give thought to. That's allowed here, right? I've always been under the impression that's what open forums are for. I rarely start topics of conversation with an "end game" in mind. I'm talking freely, not conducting a thesis.

I agree with this wholeheartedly. I'm not sure anyone wouldn't.

We hardly have any bleeding fanatics here who's lives are completely consumed by Shenmue as if it was their only preoccupation in life. Most of us are in their late 20's, some married, many have much more important things in life and Shenmue remains a source of entertainment we are indeed very passionate about.
Please get over yourself. People can be fans of something and stay fans of something especially if that something is incomplete.
Do you see many auto enthusiasts enjoy a beautiful car missing essential parts? Do you see many fans of movies or a book series missing it's sequels and being fine with that? It's not often people enjoy incomplete things.
Yes, you sir are in the minority when it comes to not wanting Shenmue 3. Have fun with that.

The realization that a sequel being funded or even interested in, and the fire second.


:???: um ok.


There was a stage I was foolish enough and unfamiliar with how life works when I truly believed purchasing capsule toys and sending them to Sega was going to get the attention of decision makers.


What did she do to you, bro?

I don't think anyone really has a problem with you actively not wanting Shenmue 3, in fact I've talked to other Shenmue fans with that opinion. But I think what people here are taking issue with is the condescending tone of your original post, you weren't just expressing your views on the game, you were telling us to "just give up" and suggesting we should be embarrassed by our "failures". You want to dream and discuss about the "impossible", well go for it, start a thread about that, like many people already do, but don't tell us what we should or shouldn't be doing with our time. You deserve that buzzkill of the year award.

The owner of this thread is just trolling; don't let that person catch more fishes with the provided bait. It doesn't surprise me that that person has already got "Thanks" from other trolls who dwell here ...or demi-trolls.

I don't think most of us would be sour about it if SEGA actually acknowledged the fanbase even a little bit and admitted that we are never getting a sequel. But since they have remained so, so damn ignorant over the years, it's only right that we as Shenmue fans, pester them until they ultimately announce one way, or another (oh no), the fate of the series. Think of it like being an incessant child that just wants attention. Yes, I'm making us sound bad by saying that, but let's be honest here, SEGA really need to stop stringing us along with the indefinite answers and just let us know already. The indecisiveness is really annoying. So is the complete radio silence. We've been patient enough with SEGA over the years, I think.

And hey, if there's even a chance that it may happen, you're damn right we'd try to make it happen.
Regarding part of your post, I think almost all discussions relating to Shenmue I, Shenmue II, Shenmue Online and all other related Shenmue media and Shenmue theories have been almost exhausted at this point, so it's about time we got Shenmue III. So we have something new to discuss... :)

Half Dead, are you in reality, worried that if III comes to pass, that you'd be disappointed by it, after all of this time? Is that your concern?

You can retire to your cave and forget all about it. Good for you. Enjoy. But you have no right whatsoever to tell anyone else to give it up and that they should be embarrassed for trying. Be it for a videogame sequel or anything else in life. Shame on you for that.

I think that's a different topic entirely, but since I've already disclaimed I'd be one of the first people to buy a console to play it I might as well come out and say yes, I have little doubt it'd be a disappointing game. From a story perspective it might be satisfying, but the genre has little room for innovation anymore, unless Shenmue 3 were to be produced by the same people behind the previous entries.

Don't worry, dude - if you've experienced online forum culture for long enough then you will become accustomed to the fact many people have been abused and the product of their trauma is to preemptively accuse others of "trolling" before their hearts receive more damage. It seems that anyone online who makes a remotely controversial or different statement from the grain is immediately outed as someone pulling a prank. I learned to ignore it.

Don't you see that you are by this telling most of us indirectly to ignore just what you say? Kind of paradox, isn't it?

If you're going to actively be against another installment, do it for the right reason. The team that made the game disbanded many years ago, and Sega is a joke now. If a third game came out it would be just terrible I imagine, and we'd forever have to live with that sullying of the franchise.
