I can't be the only guy who doesn't want Shenmue 3, right?

Postby Half Dead » Mon Dec 30, 2013 9:03 am

I think this website is a lot better at preserving the timelessness of a true classic than pushing (or mostly just discussing) a sequel.

Don't get me wrong - if the game was announced today I would have to buy a new console just to play it. But I think deep down the majority of you are aware the series has such a niche following that even if it didn't have a terrible history of financial loss, it still wouldn't sell to make a return as per today's requirements.

Just give it up. I don't even mean any offense by this, because I took part in some of them, but if you were to list all of the stunts you've pulled to get Sega's attention, some of you would be embarrassed. Not because of the actual lengths you went to do something, but because they were huge failures. You have spent over a decade now holding onto your seats in blind and fading anticipation.

They won't even release downloadable HD versions to consoles. Didn't it take Sega like eight years to make Shenmue 2 backwards compatible with the 360?

Let's put the series to rest and accept the fact the series is over. It might be a lot more fun and open ended dreaming about the impossible remaining chapters than hoping they get made.

I usualy don't claim for Shenmue III. I also want IV, V, VI, VII etc.

If they release Shenmue III as the final game of the saga, all the trip of Ryo and his battles with Chiyoumen's leaders will be resumed.
That's a shit. Ryo beating the 4 leaders and Tentei in one game :-|

If you don't think it's worth the effort to keep trying new ways to bring about Shenmue III, then that's entirely your choice. 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.

The thread starter's username is so apt I'm tempted to think he's a troll. The lights are on, but no one's home, the fire has gone out in his heart.

You're losing nothing but precious time, unless the thrill of dreaming is such an intense hobby that even after 12 or so years you feel you must carry on. If that's the case then we can't relate on any level.

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

I think you're overestimating the amount of time we spend thinking/hoping/wishing for Shenmue. I hardly ever think about Shenmue -- even still I can't imagine it being much of a waste of time. I'm pretty smart but most of my thoughts are pretty damn stupid. Food -- lust -- Shenmue. What does it matter?

Shenmue 3 would be pretty kick-ass. I hope it happens.

Pessimistic people such as yourself can have fun being closed minded all you want. It doesnt change the fact Shenmue 3 would be a welcome addition to the series considering it would provide real closure.
Sounds like you were just never a real Shenmue fan to begin with. You didnt quite understand what it still means to all of us. Have fun with whatever series you care to chat on forums about or not and see if we care.

Yes im in a shit mood right now. Thanks for being an outlet for my disdain.

And Shenmue Online? I'd love to play Shenmue Online.

Haha. The best that can happen is:
- Shenmue 3 comes in 2014. The game has no ending. You only defeated Niao Sun.
- Shenmue 4 is anounced 'cause of masive sellings of the third game.
- While we are waiting for the next episodes, a Sega's announcement appears. Shenmue Online will open the servers.

This would be so perfect, lol. You play Shenmue when it comes to the market. When you have already finished with all quests or story you can play Shenmue Online while you wait the next episode.

A real possibility we all have to consider a possibility is an all encompassing condensed full 1-16 chapter Shenmue game that wouldnt require the need for HD ports or remakes to sell S3.
Although some HD ports would obviously be welcomed.
