My question is…how can that one guy call Shenmue the most overrated game series ever? Um...doesn't a series have to be, you know, kind of popular in the "mainstream" to be overrated? And if Shenmue is as popular as he claims, then why did it sell badly? And wouldn't it have to be on a console that almost everybody has, which the Dreamcast was definitely not (for the first one anyway). I was under the impression that it was a cult hit if nothing else.
Or did everybody and their parents buy Dreamcasts and Shenmue years after when I wasn't paying attention?
By the way, Shenmue rules.
Lol i know you must find it strange that one guy is for shenmue and another is against it. One of those 2 people, Rab i believe, posted his reasons why on the http://www.shenmuedojo.net
fourms. Apparently, for legal reasons they can't be seen promoting a product that might exist, so thats one of the reasons why. Ofcourse, you can ask him directly about the whole "overrated" topic on the shenmuedojo fourms. He posts under the name "biglime" i believe.
Also, for the record i don't recall Shenmue getting many bad reviews at all( except for Gamespot) especially for the original. I suppose Shenmue would always be a love or hate game but it definitly deserves a continuation for us that loved this game.
