With all the hype of Metal Gear Solid 4 and its soon to be released status sometimes its
hard to recall just how the franchise has got to this point. For most it is assumed that
MGS began on the Playstation 1. This is a common mistake and can be easily corrected
in a fun way.
GameTrailers.com has released a new retrospective covering the Metal Gear franchise. It starts way back with the first game showing video of all the games with a full timeline and explanation into each progressions benefits and shortcomings.
So far two videos have come out with a new one expected every weekend allowing for
a slow progression finishing around the middle of June. Just a warning though that Part 2
does get a little complicated with a number of similar names listed in quick secession.
Its still one of the most essential videos to watch online, or even better to download and
watch on a portable video player. If you get into the videos you might want to take a look
at the other retrospectives including ones on the Final Fantasy series and all the Star Wars games ever made.
What does this mean for you? Great fun and a good watch. For anyone interested in games or wanting a quick catchup before the next one’s release you have to watch it.
