This is on my list because it was an awesome, subtle, emotionally complex title like nothing that had ever been seen before. It also kicked off a life long obsession with Japan that led me to eventually live there.

Shenmue isn't perfect. Far from it. The fighting system is sloppy, the game grinds to a complete halt on Disc 2 and the voice acting ranges from hammy to wooden but I think these problems make me love it even more. These imperfections are obvious but they add to the game's charm. But enough of that. The game's positives deserve some mention. The story is a classic revenge story that is told in parts. Shenmue chronicles the first chapter in a 11 (or was it 16) chapter epic. The characters are memorable and feel real-ish (Certainly real for a game from 2000). The overworld is incredibly detailed and beautiful. I don't like to use the term "immersive" too much but Shenmue is immersive. Doubita feels real. Capsule toys, arcade games and pointless alleyways all add to the immersion. Couple that in with some great weather effects and you've got a game that legitimately feels like a real place.

I can't dislike a game that simulates life so accurately. It felt like I was living in this world, it felt so immersive, the story was breathetaking, the open world was fun to explore, the voice acting was amazing...ly bad. Okay so not all perfect, but the combat was very engaging once you got into a fight, this game also just made QTE's cool. The game also was very long and so much to do, that it was worth more than what you paid for. I really wish this were an ongoing series because games like this deserve to be the frontrunning of our industry.

Good graphics and good intentions, but the upshot is a bit boring. If the events were faster maybe, just maybe this game would be better. The idea is one of most innovatives I ever saw, but no, I don't recomend this game to anyone. I'll explain. The idea of a clock that changes the events is great, but doesn't works, no for Shenmue. Sometime I had to expect from 13 PM to 19 PM for some event and I don't had nothing to do, I just had one option: let the game and do something else 'til the right time comes, and sometimes I lost the time and I had to expect for another day. If there is some way to make the time pass faster, please someone tell me, in other case, this game is BORING.
