>Shenmue I
cozy, comfy, completely interactive, NPCs feel surprisingly real considering the times
>Shenmue II
distant, archaic, cutscene hunter, NPCs: "I don't know about that/I was headed that way myself, want me to take you there?"

I can see the argument for Shenmue being one of the most groundbreaking games of all time but Shenmue II just feels so fucking empty.
It's like you are watching SEGA die as you play this game. Feels bad
