Thanks to Robert Lewis for the shout-out in this great article on VentureBeat:

Shenmue: A gamer's pilgrimage

Has anyone else here made their own trip to Japan/China to visit Shenmue locations? Anyone planning such a pilgrimage in the future?

What is it about Shenmue that inspires such real-world dedication after we set down the controller?

I'd love to go. I've made the pilgramage on Google Earth many times.

I guess that because the locations in Shenmue feel so realistic, it feels like we've been. I know there are real world places I've visited and want to go back to, and the same applies to Shenmue.

It's one of the only things I've always wanted to do, so I will do it one day. Problem is that whenever I have a decent amount of money, I'm not in any position in my life to do it, then when I have got the time, I don't have the money haha.


I'm prone to make a few crazy decisions, so one day I'll just snap and quit my job and go and do it  :D  Certain of that!

Someday i'd like to take the cast of the Shenmue games to all the games' locations as a documentary kind of thing. Maybe tomorrow, lemme phone Donald Trump quick...
