Shenmue Is A Masterpiece And You’re An Insult To Gamers! (Commentocracy)

The Duke is back! Amiel H’ardcore reads some lovely hate mail from a Shenmue lover who won’t stand by while someone criticizes the Dreamcast masterpiece!

Seriously, don’t mess with someone who has 100 Platinum Trophies and is probably good at Bloodborne!

Jim, I know that you do not really need help defending your positions. I also know that the nature of an Internet forum makes engaging other users a fruitless and frequently frustrating exercise. I have observed however, that sometimes, evvveryy now and then hearing the same thing from a second person will get through and make an impact. To that end I am putting two pennies into the pot of the Internet cesspool. I would like to make two points. Firstly, if a person makes a statement that you strongly disagree with the proper method of responding is to start… Read more »

Playing Shenmue on the PS4 this weekend, I have to say a lot of what Jim says rings true for me. I loved the game on it’s original release but going back hasn’t been kind. I’ll be interested to see how I get on Shenmue 2 which I thought was a big improvement on its original release.

Anyway, this hilarious video has got me checking out a lot more of Jim’s stuff, so those crazy Shenmue fans can’t be all bad.

I was looking forward to something like this since the Shenmue Jimpression – I seriously don’t understand these sort of people – I think these people are worse than Zelda fans in a way because it has a bit of a cult following (I never finished Shenmue 2 on dreamcast…I want to go back to playing it again sometime but not sure I have the time to do what I want to do in it.)

You don’t think some of these people intentionally send you the stupidest comments in hopes of being featured in Commentocracy, do you?

Then again, how do you tell the difference between them and real comments, Poe’s Law and all.

I don’t know why, but Commentocracy always feels so calming to me. It’s probably because the soft posh music as inane-at-best-horrid-at-worst comments are ridiculed is just very cathartic. Thank you for the return of this series!

May the Duke have mercy on all our Dark Souls.

Silly console peasants and their “plats”. As if their little digital trophies could ever amount to anything of any actual value unlike…PC gaaaaming. Us Glorious PC Master Race Gamers have our PCs made with craftsmanship of the highest quality. They are decorated with Titanium and encircled with bands of Steel. They are adorned with hanging rings of Gold, Copper and Silver and encrusted with diamonds, emeralds and gypsum. They menace with spikes of platinum. On the PCs are an image of Gabe Newell. …I originally was going to just mock how platinum trophy bragging is dumb but a Dwarf Fortress… Read more »

Ooooooh, Manfred, Manfred, fetch me the elite plat controller whilst I watch the lord and saviour of gaming reveal his opinions about that hack, Jim Fucking Sterling son. I mean, who does he think he is with Sterdust and that cornflakes fella? Sure, he is wrestling but he spent a mere 5 minutes on Shemmue. Ssssssuch a cassual. A REAL reviewer would spent months on it whilst having sexual intercourse with the case in front of… *smug laugh* causal games, such as Fifa and Call of Doodie. Manfred, Manfred, fetch me the tears of the causal, I ffffffancy drinking their… Read more »

Quits after 5 minutes? Ha! There’s someone who hasn’t seen Jim sacrifice his sanity for 30+ minutes on the alter of some horrendous asset flip. Honestly, of all potential critiques, “doesn’t put in the effort” is the most comical. I can’t even finish watching a cut-down version of Jim playing something like Skyline Freerange 2, so yeah, staying power isn’t a problem for him.

Thank god for Jim.

*sniff* I really missed this,

(I must be such a filthy casual, I don’t have a platinum anything. (I mean, I don’t even have PSN. Actually, my only consoles are a now-unused PS2 and a Gamecube I only played two Pokémon games on…))
