"With the release of Metal Gear Solid 5, one of the most storied, stalwart series in the video gaming industry comes to a close. It does so in classic, absurd style, with a sprawling, endless take on its classic stealth gameplay, a tour de force for newcomers and longtime fans alike. It’s the biggest game in the series by a long shot, with by far the most intricate gameplay, most extensive weapon systems, and a sense of freedom the series has never had before. But, for me, it’s still not the best game Hideo Kojiima has given us yet. That honor will always go to the original Metal Gear Solid on Playstation."
