Metal Gear Solid and the Death of a Childhood

Pixels or Death's Sean McGeady chronicles his relationship with his father and the slow demise of his childhood in parallel with their shared experience of the Metal Gear saga.

"It is 1998 and my father’s nicotine-stained fingers are much more nimble than my own. I need his fingers because without them Solid Snake will die." (Culture, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Metal Gear Solid Series, PS2, PS3)

Yes indeed sir. This story remembered me the times when i had with my dad back in 1998/1999 when i first played MGS1. He wasnt the keen person to play games...never really had been but liked to watch me play them. And over the years he knows its something i very much cherished close to my heart. Everything down to what i collected to the games to the action figures. I tried to get him to play it once but he wasnt very good and kept getting caught. But he said he doesnt need to really play the games to understand it all. All he told me was, "Bryan, if being a huge fan of thoes games makes you happy, than im happy for you."
