Original post:

Help give the Shenmue series some extra publicity in this new poll being run by Famitsu in Japan for best Action-Adventure game.

It's very straight-forward and will only take a minute - just a matter of giving up to 3 game titles.

I voted for Shenmue, Shenmue 2 and the third title Shenmue 3.
"Shenmue II reveals the true scope that the series encompasses and how this story is still just beginning. If it continues to be composed of ambitious, engrossing and entertaining titles like Shenmue II, Yu Suzuki's legacy may be best remembered for the Shenmue series."

I voted for Shenmue and Shenmue II. And since that list gave me the idea, Ninja Gaiden II.

Did you beat Ninja Gaiden II on Master Ninja mode?

Moved this to the Shenmue forums since it's not really about Shenmue III. Think it's better kept here.

The placement of the games is indeed great news. Ironic that both of them got beat by a Yakuza game...
Awesome that they even got some interviews and reported them how well the games placed.
