As listeners to TalkRadar UK will know, this week I finished the original Shenmue from start to finish for the first time in around ten years. As our 100 best games of all time feature would suggest, it's still as magical and fresh as it was in 2000. But I was surprised how many characters I'd pretty much completely forgotten about. Master Chen, Gui Zhang... and of course, wonderfully Gollum-esque baddie Chai. It all came flooding back... which was when I remembered I was about to see this again:
Ryo keeps a pretty straight face, but I can only imagine the horror in his mind as his precious ticket goes into that decaying abyss otherwise known as Chai's mouth. Eeeew!
