Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!
You won't believe this, but this afternoon I beat Metal Gear Solid, for the Playstation One, for the very first time in my entire life. It was on my list of things to do before the babies come.
Obviously, since the game is seven years old, I'd already experienced the vast majority of the gameplay elements in other games. Still, the boss fights (and you all know them so well by now I feel stupid getting into details) felt very fresh and clever and smart.
It was the story the struck me most, though, and I was just blown away by how cohesive and relevant it is. I know a little bit about MGS2, but not much, and I'm hoping the loose threads get picked up in the sequel. And in ITS sequel. And in ITS sequel.
Even seven years later, I'll give MGS a solid (HAH!) 8.0.
