Metal Gear Solid: The first modern video game

Eurogamer:
On September 3, 1998, Metal Gear Solid was released for the Sony Playstation, and games changed forever. Though an early 3D title, MGS was not the first third-person game influenced by cinema, nor was it Hideo Kojima's first time as director, and it wasn't even the first game in the series. It was a direct sequel to Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, 8-bit top-down games which had pioneered stealth mechanics, but also a fresh start - the moment when technology could realise these ideas anew.

For me it was the first game that I played that was truely cinematic, and made me feel like I was in a spy movie. It completely blew my mind at the time. I had never experiened anything like it. To cap it all off, the story, the cast of caracters, the double-cross, it all added up to an amazing gaming experience. It was the first game that treated me like an adult (even though I was still a kid), and completely drew me into a world of espionage. I can't count how many times I completed that game. Happy happy memories :)

I couldn't agree more. Until MGS, I didn't realize that video games were a medium that deliver a story like that. That game will always hold a special place in my heart.

I was only 9 at the time. Still getting into video games at a young age. And when I came across this game with the Vol.8 demo I was completely blown away. Exactly how you were as well too which summed up my entire experience. Heck I loved being a spy just like the movies I watched at the time. Mostly being 007 believe it or not. And that was what sealed the deal for me ever since then and ever since now. Many years later :)

the good old days. i played it, i dont know, maybe 5 times through and it was awesome. never feld like this in any other game like mgs series. couldnt wait for the next part of it though.

I beat this game twice. The second time round one of my friends insisted on watching the whole play through. We just smoked weed and zoned out while I sneaked and subdued my way through every thing. then He got to watch me fight pshyco mantis. That day I think he became a real gamer and evolved from just playing fifa and PES.

MGS was a game you could show to your friends and they would get a glimpse of what gaming could be like. It had everything. Solid mechanics, great story and I loved that techy grey colour to everything. This was a game for me. I cant wait to play MGS V. But I would love a proper remaster of the first MGS.

I remember how I used to argue with my pals that syphon filter was a better game(hadn't yet played mgs)...but when I did play it I was jaw dropped from begining to end. Amazing game

Man, I still remember having that same argument with one of my mates the day I completed MGS. After playung MGS, I just couldn't get into Syphon Filter.

I am currently obsessing over MGSV, watching too many vids, Hideo Kojima is an artist!

I love how Metal Gear 1 and 2 are still important to the story, I love the care and constancy to the series!

Metal Gear ends with MGSV for me.
