The Biggest PS4 Games to Play in 2017
By GameSpot Staff on
Shenmue is a divisive franchise, but one thing that everyone who’s played through the games can agree on is that the story is incomplete. The second game ends on a massive cliffhanger and rabid fans want the series to return so much that they raised well over $6 million on Kickstarter for Shenmue 3.
Considering the first two titles are among the most expensive games of all time, the projects is going to need every penny. The original game released on the Dreamcast and pioneered open-world games. Not only did it and its sequel allow you to explore large cities in Japan and China, but the games were meticulously detailed.
The series is predominately about its story, however. You play as Ryo Hazuki, and in the original game, villain Lan Di beats you up and kills your father in front of you. On your quest for revenge, Ryo learns martial arts and becomes stronger along the way. Will Ryo become strong enough by the end of Shenmue 3 to enact revenge? We can’t wait to find out.
