Yeah we had some good times. I miss it too. But then I like to think about the fact that we got to have something that was pretty amazing. I mean, it lasted a pretty long time considering it started over a game that did not last so long. And even more amazing that it still exists, even if it is just a fraction but when you think about how many years that has gone by it is a pretty cool thing! I grew up during these years, as did so many of us. And during all these years there hasn't been any new Shenmue games. But still some of us are still around, I'm sure even more stop by but doesn't write anything.
I'm glad I was around and got to be a part of it all, and many years from now I will still think about you, remember you, miss you, smile at the memories from the time we shared. I'd like to think that I'll still be here if this place still exists.
Don't think of it like every year less of us, think about it like a cozy room, with some nice couches. A room that may sometimes appear empty but as long as it is there, you can always come back. Sometimes people stay away way to long but there is always a chance that they will come back. And don't forget about us when you leave.
Also, I'm very grateful for the people who are still willing and able to keep this place going.
All those years ago when I first joined a forum about this game called Shenmue that I had just finished and really enjoyed, I never believed that I'd still be going there so many years later. And to this day there has never been any other forum that I have visited for so long.
