15 years later, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is still a triumph of game design

GR: "15 years ago on this very day, Konami put out the third entry in the Metal Gear Solid series. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater was a necessary step backward in order to wrap up the series in the right way, and the third-person stealth title added a ton of new systems that are still intriguing to look at."

i loved snakeater so much! i'll never forget when i shot the parrot off of "the end" shoulder. i wasn't aiming for it but i killed him and the End started ranting and yelling about someone killing his bird.

That boss fight is so incredible. Wish more games gave you so many ways to go about winning. It feels so much more organic.

For a brief window, you could even kill him when he was introduced in a wheelchair near the beginning of the game.

One if my all time favorites

That was one of the things that made me say "this is the best game I ever played". The sheer attention to detail was something I never had experienced before in a video game. You could be on your 5th playthrough and the game would still be able to surprise you with something new. 15 years later and no game since has been able surpass the experience MGS3 provided me.

I consider MGS4 as one of my all time favorites but I can confidently say Snake Eater beats it in sheer amount of detail. It was mind-blowingly good.

Didn't know I could use the handkerchief to stun The End until 10 years after I beat the game.

You learn so much more after the fact/first play. . . The attention to detail throughout the franchise is truly up there

i never knew that either.

I've hardly played the game. Good to know lol. I played a little way back when and wasn't caring for it much but now I'd probably like it. Death Stranding reminds me of it and other MGS games

BigTrain1671d ago

Never cared for it or the gameplay. The worst in the series for me.

This game has the perfect Ballance between cutscenes and gameplay

I will always have respect for Kojima just because of this game.
