Metal Gear Solid is one of the most story-driven franchises in existence. The success of Hideo Kojima's games relies mostly on the fact that the player feels like he is an integral part of an espionage thriller. The adventures of lonely hero Solid Snake have stirred the passions of millions of gamers and revolutionized video games in their own way over the past decade. Although Guns of the Patriots showed an old and tired Snake, his adventures were nothing to scoff at. Still, when your protagonist is having back pain from the effort, you wonder how much longer he can stay in the field.
