It's the final chapter in an epic story arc that started over two decades ago and is beloved by millions. It shows an iconic hero past his prime who is still fighting his battles in the twilight hours of his life. These make the arrival of MGS4 all the more bittersweet, for as much as the game hits its stride as one of the most epic titles in recent memory, it just as often stunningly falters as a part of the video game medium. If nothing else, MGS4 is where the series implodes under its own epic proportions, ending the franchise at its lowest point."
