Yu Suzuki shows how Shenmue was meant to end.

Very interesting ending. Maybe one day they will make a Shenmue 3 with this ending.

Obviously this is the way all games should end.

  This was the most important piece of information I learned at GDC. 
 
 
And cliffybee was a nice touch.

What's sad is that the ending for Shenmue II actually did involve a levitating sword… and it's still perhaps the greatest game ever.

I still need to finish the 2nd one.. : / 
I think I stopped because of the forklift job? (or was that in the first?)

Shenmue III would have been siiiick.

#8 Posted by Catarrhal (813 posts) -
@bukkookkub: Yeah, that's the first; there are no forklifts in Shenmue II.

That makes no sense! 
 
You can't rapid fire a shotgun like that!

Yes that is what breaks it.

They actually do have semi automatic shotguns.

That was pretty good. Mostly because he says it with a straight face, and I'm pretty sure he's actually saying the things in the subtitles.

that was the best thing i have ever seen.

He is saying exactly what is in the subtitles.

I guess MGS3 doesn't have the best ending ever after all...

that was great 

#18 Posted by Example1013 (4749 posts) -

So...what's Shenmue?

#19 Posted by kingzetta (4307 posts) -

That is he greatest thing I have ever seen

cliffy b must really like Mega64, cause he keeps showing up in their videos.

Well great now Shenmue 3 is spoiled.... as if it'll ever happen. How would that game even play today... would it be like heavy rain mixed with Yakuza's combat or something? 
 
Still... very cool.

If only this site had a database of some sort...
#23 Posted by Subjugation (4693 posts) -

Funny, but in an "I'm laughing because I'm trying to hide the fact that I'm really crying on the inside because I know this game will never come out" kind of way.

@RE_Player92:  
 
It;s too bad there's no organization of forums either, like with relevant forums attached to such a database. That would be wizardry. 
 
 
In all honesty, I was only half-trolling. I honestly don't know what Shenmue is, but I didn't feel like looking it up (even though it's literally one click away from this page), and I wanted to see if I'd get a serious reply. I was not disappointed!

I gotta play this series once they're re-release. I realize it probably won't have aged well though. Even though I haven't played more than 10 minutes of the one on xbox (2?), I maintain that Xavier: Renegade Angel needs a videogame in the vein of Shenmue.

#29 Posted by msavo (7522 posts) -
@MrKlorox: If they were to re-release it they couldn't just do an HD version like Sly and God of War. Looking back at some of the gameplay that was meh back than it defiantly hasn't aged well.
