Revenge is a Dish Best Served with Mad Angels (Shenmue)

Shenmue is an utter masterpiece of a game, an epic destined to forever be a victim of it's own sense of scope - a series left in limbo for over a decade!

Ryo Hazuki's father was murdered in front of him by the evil martial artist Lan Di for the sake of a small, circular mirror. Knocked out cold, Ryo awakes only with a cauliflower ear and the sense of burning desire to defeat his father's killer. And so, the game opens up - a whole, bustling, alive world of people going about their business, potential leads and clues to the whereabouts of Ryo's target.

Only, the game is like ADD-heaven/hell, because alongside this goal, you can play in arcades, buy toys, feed a stray cat, steal Ine-san, the caretaker's, lunch, and drink twelve cans of Sprite in succession.

I mean, on one hand, I could follow up that tenuous clue and "search for barbers"... or I could go play on a forklift truck and play some darts afterwards. What's more appealing to yo...
