Fun Fact: The Japanese version of Metal Gear Solid received complaints about being too easy. In America, it was given multiple difficulties. The Easy difficulty is what Japanese gamers experienced.

Silent Gamer I think this happened often with Japanese titles back in the day.

These official Ford commercials from 2016 use Metal Gear Solid 1 footage for some reason:

Oh Konami. btw, these are not fake.

Such a masterpiece. The music, the atmosphere, the boss fights, the creative usage of things outside of the actual game (the controller ports, the back of the game case).. One of those games that will always be rightfully remembered as one of the all-time greats.

Score: 10.0 (Classic!)

Has a good story, but the controls are super dated.

Score: 6.0 (Not bad!)

Time to play this again, just to celebrate finishing MGSV

Giga Pudding Explo, the game holds up remarkably well. Played it again last year and I'd still give it a 10!

Bob GutSmasha Yeah, there's actually a lot of detail for a PSX game; there's something really cool and focused about the story too.

I haven't played nearly enough to rate it, but so far this game is a disappointment. I like how the stealth works, and the story so far is intriguing, albeit sometimes the cutscenes can drag at times (I'm ok with this since Hideo Kojima put a lot of effort into the characterization), but Metal Gear Solid has some of the worst controls I've used in ANY video game I've ever played. The camera can't be adjusted, and the aiming system for the guns is pretty much designed to get you killed (as though Konami couldn't make the enemies actually dangerous and instead had to make Snake play like a cripple to encourage you to use stealth). It's one thing to die because you legitimately screwed up; it's another to die constantly because you can't properly aim a friggin pistol. This game was made in 1998; it's not like there was no feasible way to make the enemies challenging but still have a good aiming system. I'm shocked that, from what I hear, this is also true with the sequels.

Gries He MGS 4, ground Zeroes and Peace Walker are the only entries in the series that have decent to good gameplay. If you priotise controls over presentation, then the Splinter Cell franchise might be more up your alley. Imho Splinter Cell 1-3 > MGS 1-3

James Prumos Thanks. Also I think MGS3 isn't that bad if you play Subsistence, from what I hear, since it has a 3rd person camera. I'm just a bit baffled as to why every review here gives MGS a 9 or a 10, and half of them even say it was good at the time, as though that automatically means it will stand up today. Games can tell great stories because they are interactive, but when there's a glitch in the interactivity (ie crap control), the story goes down the toilet. Snake's supposed to be the best soldier on the planet, for crying out loud, yet he can't even shoot a gun!

Antsy Banger I dunno if it was the case in the original MGS for PS1, but in MGS: Integral for PC, if you aim in the enemy's general direction and hold the button down, Snake will auto-correct your aim for you (he'll also wait for you to release the button if you're using the pistol).

A special codec theme for the Moto 360 smart watch makes it look like it's from the future – until you remember Metal Gear Solid takes place in 2005.
