Metal Gear Solid may not be the first game in the franchise but it is the one that made it popular. It’s often crazy story, the stealth missions, the crazy story, the cinematic feel, and the crazy story (yes, it’s that crazy) have made it a favorite among gamers. How could anyone find something wrong with it, especially if they liked the game? Well, I never played so I’m not the one to ask. Shane Luis of Rerez however is.
Nothing is perfect, whether it’s perfectly good or perfectly bad. That’s why Luis created the show Positives, to find the good things in bad games. He followed that up with Negatives, a show that found the bad in really good games. The more we can find good in the bad and bad in the good the better our chances of avoiding the bad and making better games and stories. So when his review of the negatives of Metal Gear Solid showed up in my feed I thought I would share it with all of you, even though it’s a old show. Old is still good.
Unfortunately Luis has yet to do a Positives episode on the NES so head to his YouTube channel and bug him about it.
