Episode 220 – Metal Gear Solid Changed Gaming (feat. Sound of the Raign)

When you discuss seminal pillars of gaming, Metal Gear Solid will always come up. In several ways, it changed the gaming landscape through creatively immersing players into the world of Shadow Moses, Solid Snake, and Metal Gears. Not only that, MGS pioneered stealth games, thrusting them into the spotlight with a cinematic flair. Despite what you may think of Kojima, it’s impossible to deny the genius of the game’s design.  

But hidden underneath Metal Gear Solid is good bit of philosophy. Is violence a sport? Can love bloom on the battlefield? Can we resist our genes? Join us as we discuss this masterclass of game design as we break down Metal Gear Solid/Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes.
