Celebrate May... Metal Gear May! (...and get drunk).
PLEASE NOTE this article is purely in jest, and theory of how a person would actually play a "drinking game" of Metal Gear, were it to happen. I have no intention of playing it, nor do I seriously want to encourage anyone to drink irresponsibly or play this game as described. This is much more making a point of how repetitive some aspects of Metal Gear are, which would result in the drinking game version of this being impossible.
With 2013 has bringing us kicking and screaming into May, now comes a little tradition in our family (well, when I say family, I mean the geeks that are my brother and I). We call it "Metal Gear May".
And this year I thought what better way to celebrate than with the Metal Beer drinking game! Crack out those spirits; line-up the shots; get your beers handy; lock up your daughters! And get ready to keep on fighting... or throw up trying.
You can generally swap the player in your group however you like; but the drinks make it that more interesting for bystanders. And if you're on your own, woe to you.
