Not that an MGS game wasn't hyped or hadn't excelled critically and commercially, however, in terms of advertising, content and production values, MGS4 tops them all.
"Some may disagree with this being labeled the defining event of 2008, but there is simply too much significance attached to the game's release. Ten years of Metal Gear Solid coming full circle. One of the few exclusives to PS3. The game that sold more PS3s than even Grand Theft Auto IV."
