The barometer of success in the gaming (what you are about to read can also be applied to movies, comics, music and books) is much like a scientific hypothesis. In order to understand the premise of the article the most basic truths must be assumed and correlated with certain conditions in which a reasonable answer can be extrapolated.

This is what is considered a true forgotten gem. A game that had everything going for it except sales and recognition (despite being made by the Tekken guys). It now gathers dust in the memory of most gamers.
