Silconera: I’m no Metal Gear Solid veteran. I remember Psycho Mantis’ crazy controller-port switching boss fight and Big Boss’ betrayal in Snake Eater, but that’s where my knowledge of Hideo Kojima’s eccentric military universe stops cold. That didn’t stop me, however, from enjoying every second of Metal Gear Solid V footage I was treated to at E3 this year.
For ease of reading, I’ll describe what I saw using bullet points. Before I start, though, let me just say that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is the best looking game I’ve ever seen.
