Thats all i had to say on the subject. Otherwise, well put.
Because in Shenmue, it takes forever for anything to actually happen. Overly realistic environments are cool and all, but it doesn't amount to much when you're simply walking around and talking to people for hours. Not to mention an ending that forces you to buy the second game if you actually want to know how things end.
It's not terrible, but I certainly consider it overrated. I'm not much for the initial boredom. It gets better, yeah, but that doesn't make the bad stuff disappear.

Uh, which Atari? I really hope you're talking about the 2600.
