Season 4 Finale – Shenmue, by Catherine Woolley (Part One)

“They killed my father right in front of me. I will have my revenge. I need to do this, for my father.”


The end is near.

For the second time, a returning game hits up the show, but for the first time, a two-parter episode on the same game and guest as Season 4 of My Favourite Game comes to an end.

In the first part of this two-part finale, Creative Assembly designer Catherine Woolley talks of Shenmue as her favourite game. And she goes into super lengthy detail, enough to break this into a two-part finale (THREE. HOURS. IN. TOTAL).

Catherine talks of the parallels she found with Shenmue and in her travels across Japan, her love for the series which loosely brought the creation of Shenmue about, Virtua Fighter, and Yu Suzuki’s past work.

You can find the first part of this two-part Season 4 finale of My Favourite Game below.

(Since this episode was recorded, Catherine has since left Creative Assembly for The Chinese Room)
