Old soldiers never die, Gen. Douglas MacArthur famously said. They just fade away.
So maybe it's fitting that the end of the line for one of video gamedom's most iconic soldiers, the heroic but very human Solid Snake, is the PlayStation 3's most desperately anticipated game so far, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
And it does not -- it practically could not -- disappoint.
Metal Gear Solid 4 will be remembered not only as the crown jewel in this groundbreaking video game franchise, but as one of the most significant games of our generation. Take a bow and take a rest, Snake. You've truly earned it.
