Yeah it seems a bit childish. People are acting like babies because their character lost. Ryo won...but never mind we wanna change the rules now so he can't win :???: And who the hell is Miku?

I can't believe what I'm reading on that SEGA thread. Ryo's gotten more than three thousand votes for crying out loud!

I'm pleading our case (link), but we can only hope sanity prevails. If they de-emphasize Ryo's support at this stage then the whole effort will have felt like a cruel waste of time.

I don't think we have a lot to worry about.
I'm sure sumo are going to see all of the results.
If they themselves don't want him in though, there's a lot of excuses not to include him.

If he's not accepted then I can deal with that, but I don't want Sega to be given the impression that he was a less popular candidate than he actually was. If they want to discard him for one reason or another, it's a shame, but they should at least have to do it with the full knowledge that he was the public's choice.

This is like the munichs at the end of last season. We finished level on points, but we has the superior goal difference. They bitched and moaned that the title should've been shared or gone to a play-off even though the rules clearly state that final league standings are decided by points then goal difference then goals scored. Thankfully, sanity prevailed in this case, but it seems to me that everyone who doesn't like Shenmue is dead set about trying to melt the franchise back down into a steaming puddle of liquid shit.

Even if he doesn't make DLC, he won the contest and we've made our point.

The members at the Sega forums bitching about it are clearly misguided and probably too young to understand our plight. We are not "one person selfishly promoting only Ryo" (yes, I read that), we're a group of Sega loyalists (mutinous loyalists) who are grasping at every means necessary to stir up some Shenmue-related discussion again. We deserve closure in the form of another Shenmue game and it would have been unacceptable for us to pass a chance like this up to at least vote Ryo into a racing game he should have been included in from the get go.

Though the former is unjust, I completely agree with this point. The bigger task at hand has been completed, raising awareness. I'm also happy to see the communities unify on this effort, that's how it should always be.

I'm feeling more confident than ever that we may hear good news in the not too distant future. Not very confident, but much more than I was in 2006-2009 when things looked completely hopeless. Even around 2004, things seemed bleak because it was almost "too soon" after Shenmue II to re-boot the series, which is what Shenmue needed after the Dreamcast failing/Shenmue 2 cancellation/xbox disaster.

There was hardly a peep about Shenmue for years, then around 2010 and 2011 the pot was stirred up a little. Suzuki said he thinks Sega will let him make the game, and he said it more than once, around March 2011. He was also more candid than ever about plot points and game concept than he had been in almost a decade. Ryo appeared in Sega Racing, and his lack of appearance in the sequel turned out to be a blessing in disguise - this little campaign is a big victory for us. Even if it has little impact on our ultimate goal, it's still a self-esteem booster for those of us who feared Shenmue was forgotten.

I think the perfect amount of time has passed. However, if 2013 comes and goes with no news, this surge of hope will certainly fizzle out. Now is the time for Sega to take action...the Wii U will likely pick up steam in a year or two, as the Wii and 3DS did (Nintendo fans aren't going anywhere, and they'd appreciate Shenmue); they could even make Shenmue a launch or early post-launch title for next Xbox and PS4.

They've resorted to insulting Shenmue fans now. Great.

So a community event about banding together and trying to raise awareness has been "spoiled" because a group within the community has banded together to raise awareness?

I believe it was said many times that you could vote for more then one character, and most of us did.

Seems like some sour grapes.
