What would make you not play the game?

(Chapter 7 and beyond)

Would you play the game if it didn't live up to your expectations? (Total votes: 27)

I wouldn't care as long as it is a good game even if it is different in feeling and different from my definition of Shenmue

What would make you not play the game?

We obviously have a lot of expectations for the game, and consciously or not, have already conjured up an image of everything the game should be - from the way the characters should look to the kind of music that should play. Now, facing the reality of life that nothing will ever be as we imagine it, especially in such a creative process as video game design, what would make you not play the game or say bad things about it because you feel your expectations were betrayed?

Nothing...
Honestly, I thought about it a bit, but even if the game turns out to be a huge disappointment on every level, I'll still get it to know the story.

I'd have to be dead before I don't play this game.

To play the game I'm guessing some injury or sickness that leaves me really close to death/coma or something like that.

To say bad things, probably nothing, I'm mostly critical of everything, but I'll bite my tongue for the first months or so.

Shenmue 3 is most wanted thing in life ever. I would play it no matter how it turns out.

If someone chopped my hands off. I like Shenmue, but it's not worth trying to use a controller with your face, imo.

Quitter! ;)

I'll certainly play it (if possible) since I placed an order after all :P And out of principle and curiosity too as a fan.
Bad points? I never look for minor flaws in games and go by general impressions. For me, a good story can make up for average gameplay for example. So it would have to be really obvious and lacking in several areas : totally wrong feeling, very awful character design, odd pacing etc., bad fighting system, unresponsive controls etc.

Everyone here is probably a backer, someone who has already purchased the game. Why wouldn't you at least try a game you have paid for?

I would prefer it to stay in realistic martial arts and nothing too "magicful". Also a trip back to Japan would be ideal for me, since that was the reason I bought the original Shenmue in the first place.

I die. Lose the ability to use my hands to play games. Have a stroke and forget it. I went homeless. Some freak accident that has left me so badly injured I can't do anything.

I don't think there's anything that would stop me from playing the game, except for things in life that make me stop playing alltogether. Even if the game turns into a spiritual successor with none of the characters or story elements I'd still play it. It carries the name and it's made by Yu Suzuki so I'd still be interested. Well okay this might be too far fetched and luckily won't happen, at least not to Shenmue III.
