I haven't started the game yet, but this is probably my one major complaint/fear. I despise stamina systems (unless I'm playing a game explicitly part of the "survival" genre).
With Shenmue in particular, there's something zen about exploring in an Animal Crossing-like way, and having stamina added to time limits... blech.
just imagine stamina maintenance in animal crossing, yuck! 🤮🤮
I hate stamina maintenance in games too, i guess this popular mechanic is really going to take off, 🙄
I just don't understand the appeal of it, particularly in non-survival games. I get that we joked back in the day of the original Shenmue games, "Wouldn't it be cool if Ryo could eat these candy bars we can buy?" but I don't think anybody expected Yu to take it so literally that he'd make it a mandatory game mechanic!
