Yes it's about time as I never played the second game.

Lets just hope the ports are done well.

Now these are games I really thought we'd never seen available for the computers. I'm quite glad to be wrong!!

Maybe but Joxer will hate both games as they both have mini-games and QTE's.

I remember playing Shenmue on the Sega DreamCast, but never played the second as you need an X-BOX. Glad to see Pc port finally almost 15 years late though.

I don't hate minigames that are fun. If it'll be something like Prey minigame, then yes, I will hate it.

QTE in a game that wasn't originally on PC? OMG how's that even possible.
Of course there is QTE in it. The original platform is pathetic it can't do anything else.
But I won't hate it unless it's excessive, meaningless and grindy.

I backed Sh3 on KS because it didn't avoid PC release for a reason only to discriminate PC audience. You know, we have machines that eat handhelds for breakfast yet developers don't give us games. Some developers. Being a backer of Sh3 doesn't automatically mean I'll buy first two games. Additional reason is I wanted/wished Sega to port Yakuza 0 before anything else.
If the "package" was put on Steam today when I'm definetly in a mood to buy something, I'd probably do it without much thinking and analyzing like that seemingly overrated roguelike Vinland from 2 days back. But it's not today. So I'll cross the bridge when, well. If.

I remember back when GTA3 was breaking into the mainstream with its first fully-3D iteration, someone likened it to "Shenmue with cars, guns and prostitutes."
At that time, Shenmue was the most expensive game ever made and it represented the gold standard for 3D open-world adventures.

I'm really looking forward to Shenmue III as well as replaying the originals in 4K. I enjoyed them in spite of their slow pace. The story set in '80s era Japan/Hong Kong, was a big plus, but those games never lived up to their potential as open-world brawlers. Hopefully Shenmue III will up the ante with more martial arts action and fewer drawer pulls.

I can't help feeling that a lot of people are going to be scratching their heads and wondering what all the fuss was about. These were neat games 20 years ago, but open-word gaming has come a long way since then.

So it's another Chrono Trigger case. Good to know.

But there could be a certain difference. If the game had an awsome story 6754938756234657834568736 years ago, it'll have it also today. If it was just a nostory gimmick back in the day, then we'll be confused why today's lockpicking minigame is one whole game.
Note that I don't know anything about Shenmue's story. Maybe it's good, maybe it sucks. What I know is that two games were held hostage by rubbish hadware for decades and someone finally decided to release them from the prison.
