I just don't see the harm of the 'outsized' hype. Shenmue 3 was never going to live up to that, but sometimes it's nice to be really excited about stuff that doesn't really matter. The game probably wouldn't have got made without that fever and it's a decent enough game and for that I'm grateful. And honestly considering how many set backs Yu Suzuki had to his career, seeing him get all that applause on massive stage was touching.Jim's motivation for this video has gotta be the outsized treatment Shenmue 3 got at the announcement. Enthusiasts were literally saying Sony "won the generation" and other extremely hyperbolic statements on a game announcement for a sequel to a game that most people reacting never played. The reaction to Shenmue 3 announcement was a gaming moment I had pretty much only seen a handful of times in this community, FF coming to Xbox and like GTAIV launch trailer.
