Metal Gear takes root all the way back in the days of the original NES. The military action title has since grown into a franchise recognizable by gamers all over the world. In the 90s, stealth became an instrumental part in the Metal Gear Solid world along with a feature film-like format. It was the first game to really feel like you were watching a movie. There were opening credits and cinematic sequences that would make would give you a craving for popcorn and Raisinettes. It's a combination of that presentation and creator Hideo Kojima's fascination with high-tech weapons that keeps us on edge for the next sequel.
