Shenmue

In 1999, DreamCast players were introduced to Ryo Hazuki, a teenager and amateur martial artist on the hunt for his father’s killer, Lan Di. This slice-of-life adventure was thrilling not just because of its fun fights and deep world, but because it felt real in a way few games do. Things went quiet after Shenmue 2, but 2019’s long-awaited Shenmue 3 has fans hoping the saga will one day be finished.
