Icons are aplenty in the gaming industry, and among Master Chief, Lara Croft, and Mario is the prodigious Solid Snake, who found his way to fame on the shoulders of acclaimed developer Hideo Kojima. Tactical espionage is not a genre that has much room for error, and the Metal Gear series most certainly hasn't had much competition within it. Indeed, the franchise has stood on its own among the giant titles of the gaming industry since its first 3D outing in 1998. Now it holds itself up as a relic in the newly released Metal Gear Solid HD Collection in hopes of enhancing the lives of more gamers than it already has. The heart of any MGS fanatic can only hope this Collection holds up to today's standards of gaming, since one of the featured titles hasn't touched a console in nearly a decade.
