Metal Gear

Metal Gear. Where do I start? This is the U.S. version of the game that began the series that would spawn, in my opinion, the best Playstation game, and one of the best games of all time: Metal Gear Solid. It shows, too. All the elements are there, most notably the emphasis of stealth over […]
