What I have learned about Shenmue fans is that they cannot read


What is "placeholder"? What is "concept art"?

I don't get click money for this


That's not my email stop harrasing whoever that is

so I’ve been watching people play Shenmue 1 and 2 recently.

You say that as if his previous work wouldn’t be enough to put people off funding this.


That comment is really bothering me. Yeah, Yu Suzuki's development history is so embarrassing. What an ignorant idiot.

You can picture the smug grin on his face when he wrote it.

Fuck Kotaku and this clickbait shit. If I saw him in the streets I'm sure his opinion would change so that always makes me feel better.

No-one's harrassing him although he's making it out like people are to stoke the 'drama' further. From his twitter feed. The fact he posted the link to his twitter in the actual post, and almost instantly claimed victimhood proves its a poor clickbait ruse. Thats what I find funny.

Clickbait, attention whore, dramaqueen and a damsel in distress.

This guy knows videogame journalism.

I feel bad for those actual journalist and critics trying to make real content.

My polite exchange in the comments with the guy who wrote that article...

Needless to say, my comments have a lot more likes than his do.

Even other Kotaku staff don't like it:

I'm at the beach but just spent a few mins getting caught up on everything. To be clear, all of Kotaku is off today, and we've got a guest freelancer running the site, so posts aren't going through the regular editorial process. As you guys saw, I expressed my feelings in the comments.


There we have it. :rotflmao:

I have talked to Jason Schreier, News Editor of Kotaku about this. He is now posting in the Shenmue thread on GAF. He's not happy about this article at all. Apparently the staff is off this weekend and so this post did not go through normal editorial review process.

Yeah. Jason has an account at GAF too and has responded in there.

Don't let it bother you. That's exactly what this muppet is trying to achieve.
Any half decent gamer will know of Yu's past works and how important they have been in the industry.
That Phil guy is just a butt hurt jerk.

You can always rely on ignorance off the vast majority of these so called "games journalists". All they care about is the AAA and the odd arty farty nonsense and that is it.

Seriously though guys, let's concentrate on the positives and not give Kotaku clicks for posting such tripe. Some of you are falling right into the trap.

It should be emphasized that Shenmue fans have the moral high ground in this debate, and nobody should sacrifice it by personally insulting this guy or being mean to him. This low quality journalism probably already has him in hot water.

The focus should be on being positive, being truthful, and helping foster fairer and more upbeat coverage in the future.
