Well, his Borderlands 3 review went as I expected.

Sometimes, I feel like some people are too eager to egg on the series. I mean, don't get me wrong, I can admit that it hasn't aged well, but I also kind of respect it for some of the more positive impact the games had on tech as a whole. And this is coming from someone who never really had any "nostalgia" playing the original releases, and had only got to sample it on the HD collection. So either way, I kind of enjoy it in places, despite all the niggles. I mean, I still enjoy Dead Rising 1, despite some of its dated and frustrating mechanics. I've enjoyed Wolfenstein The New Colossus, despite all the backlash that feels more painful to sit through than most of Super Spesh's especially wince-worthy dialouge. Heck, there are some things I can find salvageable in even some of the biggest black sheeps of some of the most well-known game series out there, so if anyone wants to try and kick me down and call me an idiot, then COME AT ME, BRO!

Things got heated in the kickstarter comments. Alot of backers still haven't got the game apparantly and there's silence on Fangamers end. Also this game is apparently getting DLC alot of backers knew nothing about and will apparently have to pay for.

So very funny with the imps and Shenmue losing to the giant imp twice by stomping on him with "Ow ow ow"! XD

I love the shenmue series always have but I'll never say it's a good game, it's living in the past and has massive flaws and that bulllshit with the gang-leader, knocking you out twice with a fucking lariat was infuriating. They made the quick time events even worse, by giving no time to press them whatsoever. You would have to have the ability to slow time to catch the fucking things. So many bad things about shenmue, but i don't think I'll ever stop loving it. Brainwashing at it's finest lol.

I'm a huge Shenmue fan (and by that I mean 1 and 2) but number 3 is an absolutely awful game

I don't know if I should be depressed or proud that I rage quit this game before Yahtzee did.

The Shenmue series sounds like another case of being a good idea on paper but not so much in practice.

The key is to actually practice the Horse Stance in real life, while doing in the game. Anyway, the game is great.

What I'm getting from this is that Shenmue 3 (and by extension 1 and 2) are akin the part of Monty Python's Holy Grail, where everone starts yelling "Get on with it!", only it never does.

Hey Shenmue fans - good news! The turd game, I mean, third game managed to hit Yahtzee's end of the year awards and beat out 2 games on the worst list!!!!!

Shenmue fans just need to get out of their nostalgia and realize that it's a bad game. Then go and play the Yakuza series.

I own shenmue 3 and this review makes me excited to play it.

Shenmue is bad. It has always been bad. Sure, it could have been great. There was a lot of potential, and a lot of the ideas in the original were ahead of their time. But their implementation was terrible and all that potential was wasted. Shenmue sucks and I wish people would just stop talking about it.
"... pays worse than giving handjobs to church mice..." This shit right here is what makes me come back to this bastard for laughs more than 10 years later....

So skip Shenmue 3 and just play Yakuza 0 instead.

Since you asked for advice, the proper method was to take the dico out, burn it Infront of the family dog and then maybe have a little cry, hope this helps :)

"Don't miss the next three shenmue sequels after which Ryu will have finally completed the first third of his character Arc" Ah, the Disney Star Wars method.

You're so jaded and sardonic like a well written character that exists solely to counter act the overly optimistic protagonist and it's beautiful. This has been my ted talk.

I literally saw a post from a shenmue fan talking about his first impresions of the game listing the admitedly bad graphics and animations as a positive.

Shenmue is respected not because it is good but because it helped make the Yakuza series. Also this review is a very long-winded way to say Shenmue is a fuckin forklift driving simulator for assholes.

1:07 "It would have been so much more competitive if it had the games" Nah, Dreamcast had alot of great games, it was marketing and pirating that made it a failure, do your research next time Mr. game "journalist"
Ekkk Hace un mes
Not really, most standout Dreamcast games were arcade ports and by 1999 that wasn't much of a selling point.

This is mean and stupid. The game is not without its faults and shortcomings. It's a kickstarter sequel to an ambitious game in scope. It was bound not to be perfect. But it has a distinctive charm, immersion and beauty. It's not GTA or Yakuza, nor does it want to be. It's much more down to earth and intent. The reviewer does seem smart enough to realize that, but goes for the easy, cheap shots in a trademark snarky and bitchy tone in order to get views. Sad to see how something like this does well
Majora Hace un mes
Judging by the review the game is badly written, boring, and unreasonably obtuse. It's a bad game you spineless clown. Grow some standards.

I have no horse in this race, but it's not "shenmooey."
ArcaneAzmadi Hace un mes
It's close enough for someone who doesn't actually speak Japanese like Yahtzee. Before I learned to speak Japanese, I pronounced it "Shenmoo" (and did for decades afterwards even when I should have known better, just out of habit). I give him credit just for acknowledging that you're meant to pronounce the "e" on the end separately.

One game I would like to see Yahtzee review is Pathologic 2. You are a surgeon who had gone away for medical school before returning home due to a letter from your father. When you return to your hometown, everything is completely screwed up, along with an emerging plague. It is bleak, depressing, frustrating, and the choices are never easy to make. Anyone else know this game? If so, let Yahtzee know so he will review it in the future.

I've never even played Shamu before. But after watching the first cutscenes of the third game I'm inclined to agree with Yahtzee on this. (That was a joke)
mrmonkeyman79 Hace un mes
I remember enjoying the first one when it came out, but looking back the only things i actually remember about the game is driving a fork lift truck, petting a kitten and playing space harrier rather a lot. And if one of the only things your players remember about your game is the other game that came with it then you probably did it wrong.
allooutrick Hace un mes
I'll take this over Yakuza. Mainly because I really dislike Yakuza's combat and there's too much of it for me to want to see the story through.

You speak as if you're trying to compress your review to an, at most, 2 minute minute video, but here you are going on for nearly 6 minutes. Once your witty banter wears out you just sound monotone and incomprehensible, especially for those wearing headphones. The discussion is in fact informative, but goodness...
