"There are a handful of moments that I would consider life-altering for me as a gamer. Playing through The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time takes the cake, with the runner-up being my experience with Pokémon Metal Gear Solid. I never got around to playing the original Metal Gear titles that released on MSX2 and NES, so forgive me for my ignorance on what came before the PlayStation classic. That said, my introduction to the Metal Gear universe was odd, as I never owned a PlayStation back in its heyday. You see, I was a Nintendo loyalist.
"That all changed when my cousin urged me to play "some game" called Twin Snakes on GameCube. At the time, I had heard of Metal Gear, but since I didn't own a PlayStation console, I tuned out the MGS2 chatter at school. That all changed when I played Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes, an updated remake of the PSone original. The game's cast of compelling characters and engrossing—albeit zany—plot had me hooked from beginning to end like no game before."
