I get it, the games are not that fun but let me tell you something, the so called spiritual successor Yakuza is also no excuse to say Shenmue sucks since there aren't many similarities there to begin with.
There is a reason why there's this fanbase that wanted Shenmue 3, a story had to be continued, people enjoyed the Shenmue universe, it's characters, settings and theme of Martial Arts in rural china (which is very unique to Shenmue of all games)
I just fail to see why people cannot stop with this bullshit argument that the games are bad "because Sega lost money" and they are financial failures. That never means a product isn't good per se it just means there's no audience there, it is niche. Many people wan't action and Shenmue only offers a fraction of that.
With Shenmue 3 there's way too much unjust by the entire gaming community, instead of looking at this game's existence and quality in good faith everybody is trashing it (not speaking of the Kickstarter's issues) but game quality wise. It is very much in the spirit of Shenmue with it's wonky English VA and funny looking NPCs. So why?
