Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is the most "complete" game I've ever had the pleasure of playing. It's one of the only times I've finished a game and was able to sit back and honestly think "there's not a single thing I would have changed about that." Perfection is not a word I throw around lightly, but I'll apply it to MGS4. Every single aspect of the game shines, and it's clear the development team truly cared about giving their fans a final chapter this legendary series deserves. There are moments (especially in the final few hours) in which you'll become completely lost in the game, almost forgetting you've got a controller in your hand. It's the absolute pinnacle of gaming as a form of entertainment, and raises the entire medium to a level of art never seen before.
