    A revolutionary exercise in both gameplay and storytelling. Simply put, one of the best (and most important) games ever made. Very few games have as many memorable and emotionally tense set-pieces as those that are found throughout this game, and the boss battles still hold up as some of the best in video game history, really only arguably surpassed by its own sequels (specifically, MGS3). In short, this is a classic in every sense of the word, and an experience that no one should ever miss out on. (In regards to the specifics of the PC version: The addition of the VR missions is awesome and endlessly fun, but this game merits a gamepad, without a doubt. Go pick up some cheap usb wired controller (used 3rd party 360 wired controllers are a surprisingly good bet), and play this game correctly. Only other gripe about this version is that all the FMV's are not visible; that might just be my computer/copy though.) Expand

    This is where it all started. A game which is half a movie. This game is the basic standard on how modern games have to be done with Incredible and emotional story with amazing action. Any gamer will be amazed by this masterpiece. Unfortunately the game is old so the graphics are pretty bad now. I hope they remake this masterpiece.

  1. PC gamers who have had no prior exposure to this game will definitely want to take a look, as this is still the same great game it always was.

    This is the definitive version of Metal Gear Solid and it's only available on the PC. Go tell your console owning buddies and watch 'em cringe.
  3. For those unfamiliar with the title, this is a chance to check out one of the better console games ever made, warts and all.
