"Incredibly strong connections can be formed between a gamer and a game. Such a connection was formed between myself and Metal Gear Solid on the Play Station. To this day I do not recall who it was that let five-year old me play the deservedly Mature rated game, but the result of this lapse of parental guidance has led to a full-fledged love affair between me and the Metal Gear series.
"When Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty was released, I spent even more time locked in outrageously fun boss battles, dog tag collecting, and cardboard-boxing my way to safety. My love of the MGS universe was deepening and I wanted more. There was never a more anticipated game for me than Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater," writes Joseph McGee of Bitmob.
