VICE: Do you know how many games come out every year? I'm not even talking about the ones that make the App Store every single day – well over 400, since you asked. I mean titles for home consoles and computers, sometimes heavily marketed affairs that you might see an advert for on late-night TV, or perhaps even an Underground poster in support of; and indie releases that tend to come out through strictly digital distribution means. Bloody loads, is the answer. Too many. Wikipedia reckons there are already over 700 games available to play on the PlayStation 4 alone. That's a console that launched in November 2013. Get your head around that. Nobody can play all of those games.
Not even professionals.
And professionals are guilty – if guilty is quite the right word – of missing out on what the wider industry, players and programmers and publishers alike, considers to be "the classics".
