If there’s one thing that has become evident in the last several years, it’s that gamers have a short attention span and its only going to get shorter. More amazing games get released in a single month these days than did in a whole year back when I was starting out. These great games all earn praise and attention, but the appreciation lasts about as long as a Twitter trend. There’s no staying power, as most don’t commit to games the way they used to. With digital distribution, packed release schedules, and self-indulgent internet trends, it’s hard for even the best games to stay relevant for long (except maybe Call of Duty). This is where Modern Day Classic comes in, looking back at more recent times and hand-picking games that you should still give a damn about. First off is the underappreciated Virtua Fighter 5.
