While many series certainly had their fair share of games in the past, amongst several generation of consoles, there are few games that can brag that any gamer at any time can pick up said game and play it like it was new. Resident Evil? Not as good now on the PSOne. Metal Gear Solid? Not as good now on the PSOne. Marvel vs. Street Fighter? Sweet Jesus it's still good and guess what platform it was on? The Sega Saturn.
Seriously, I'm not sh*tting you.
When I mentioned the original import from Japan to a complete stranger today their eyes lit up with excitement. This stranger said, "You can still pick that thing up and play it for hours." And that dear readers is the goal for games looking for this longevity.
Guess what? Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds fits that mold.
