Secondhand Snake: Metal Gear's Nintendo History

IGN: We're just days away from the launch of the 3DS remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, and when it ships it will continue a trend that's defined the Metal Gear brand on Nintendo platforms for 25 years. Nintendo never gets MGS first. None of the franchise's titles have ever debuted on a Nintendo machine. Instead, the series' Nintendo history contains only ports, remakes and secondhand appearances. But is that a bad thing? Read on to find out. (3DS, GameCube, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, Retro, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wii)
