    I suppose it's a long shot but, has anyone else played Shenmue and is looking forward to Shenmue III after a nearly 16 year absence?

    Here's a brief video for the original game if you're unfamiliar with it.

    god had it been that long I used to spend ages just wandering around I think I spent a month just wandering round the first village having fun. The Dreamcast was a great machine for its time

    Haha. It sure has been. I couldn't really believe it either. I never played the original but, I did watch my brother play it and I did watch the movie. It was fun. I mostly played Shenmue II. In fact I bought it on EBay last year. Brings back a lot of good memories from originally playing it all those years ago. It's hard, though. Especially with being stuck at a certain spot for so long.

    You won't regret this decision. It's such a lovely and amazing game series. There's always the movie too in case you can't find the game as it's gone up in price significantly since the announcement for Shenmue III on PS4 and PC.

    The music for Shenmue is so lovely.
