Metal Gear Solid is the 61st Honest Game Trailer.
Kept you waiting, huh.
From the developer that fired everyone who made their classic franchises comes a game series that's named after three random cool-sounding words in a row: Metal Gear Solid.
Prepare yourselves for the game that put the video in video games. In the twisted love child of Anime and a Michael Bay movie. Where you take on a role of an international spy... by watching 45-minute cutscenes and shooting a bunch of guys in the dick.
Experience the series that revolutionized storytelling in video games, with a plot so advanced, we still have no idea what the f#ck is going on. As you dive in a setting that is that swings between slavish devotion to realism, (Naked Snake describes a M1911A1 in great detail: Thumb safety is extended to make it easier on the finger... A long-type trigger with non-slip grooves...) and the goofiest bullsh#t you've ever seen in a video game. (cut to a shots of a Gekkos and then Johnny Sasaki discovered while trying to take a dump discreetly)
Experience a franchise older than most of its fans, featuring the MSX games you've never played (Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake), the one that blew your tiny child mind (Metal Gear Solid), the one that made you play as this asshole (Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty), the one with the alligator hat (Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater), the one which explained everything with coz' nanomachines (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots) (Cut to Solid Snake, Drebin, Dr. Naomi and Meryl saying the word "nanomachine"). Let's see... what else? Metal Gear: Hearthstone (Metal Gear Acid) Metal Gear: Monster Hunter (Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker), Metal May Cry (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance), and Metal Gear: Inflation Fetishes Jack Bauer (Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain). I hear it's great.
Step into the shoes of the world's foremost covert operative Solid Snake... or is it Big Boss? Or sometimes this jerk (Raiden). Ah, I don't know; I have no idea. And take on the world's most ridiculous terrorists like: Gimp suit wearing psychics (Psycho Mantis), minigun-wielding shaman (Vulcan Raven), human beehives (The Pain), ghosts (The Sorrow), (no really, ghost), bisexual eletric man (Colonel Volgin), your dead brother inside another man's arm (Liquid Ocelot), two separate characters that are immortal and want to die (& Vamp) and the president who is also Snake's brother in a Doc Oct suit. (Otacon: It's like on of my Japanese Animes)
Challenge the gameplay that's kept players mildly entertained with cutscenes for two decades with advanced stealth techniques like hiding in boxes, doing the worm, distracting your enemies with porn and waiting for guards... forever. Come on! Or just go full Rambo and murder everyone inside. The take a break from the hours of codec conversations and battle the true enemy of the Metal Gear Solid series: the terrible controls.
Immerse yourself in the mind of gaming's Tarantino, Hideo Kojima and experience the insane level of detail Metal Gear puts into pointless details as well as the innumerable secrets and easter eggs hidden throughout the series, about half of which are really creepy. (Paz in swimsuit: Did you come here to swim? It's too dangerous. Stay away from me. Oh Japan, you so crazy. So whether you think Kojima could do no wrong and everything in the game is intentional (Outer Haven's Mt. Rushmore-like sculptures rise from the seas) or you think the story is so far up its own ass, it'll never see the light of day. (Again, Outer Haven's Mt. Rushmore-like sculptures rise from the seas). One thing is for sure: This totally doesn't work in real life. (Sneaking around in cardboard boxes).
Starring: Snake Pliskin (Big Boss), the Mighty Mighty boss clones (Solid & Liquid Snake), John Carpenter (Revolver Ocelot), Professor Layton (Hal Emmerich), you don't know Jack (Raiden), Octopussy (Solidus Snake), Jane Lynch (The Boss), the voice of Samurai Jack (Vamp) and punctuation (Metal Gear exclamation mark and alert noise). Movie Gear Solid: Snakes in a game.
