    I never played this game. Why was it so good that people get crazy about it? And crying on youtube?… that's just beyond me.

    Shenmue took an open world experience to new boundaries. It isn't merely a sandbox game where there it nothing to do. in the city almost every store you can enter and interactive with various objects and games. The world is structured by a calendar and dynamic wether system and it is great to see the world react to this – for instance, near christmas time you see the city get into the christmas spirit.

    But at the heart of the story you follow a young man seeking revenge for the death of his father and it's superbly told as you investigate the surroundings to learn more about what happened. Sure some of the voice acting is awful but Shenmue's attention to detail and charm simply cannot be denied. It's the single reason I still have my Dreamcast.

    Vivi, the 'open world' term wasn't even part of gamer's set of definitions back then, at least widely. This game came well before titles like GTA3 or the explosion of sandbox style gaming experiences.

    The team tried to invent a name for the type of genre this sort of game belonged to. They called it F.R.E.E.
    Fully Reactive Eyes Entertainment.
    Obviously this term never caught on and we just refer to these as open-world games.

    Also, I think the term QTE's or 'quick-time-events' originated here. I believe that's what Yu named them and this did catch on as a gamer definition.
    The game was before it's time in ambition.

    I don't want a $3k jacket, all I want is a physical copy on PS4!
