Escape From Mount Stupid - Metal Gear
This week on Escape From Mount Stupid, Danny tackles the many incarnations of Metal Gear.
Even with Snake taken out of MGS2 the protagonist, I still found it even with Raiden a great game BECAUSE Snake was still in the game as Pliskin, and his role and story was still explored from Raiden's viewpoint. Pliskin was a homage to Snake, as a far deeper character, perhaps after losing Meryl and stuff, he was hardened into a mercenary. Raiden continues to question Pliskin about his loyalty, and his devotion to his nation as a soldier; I loved the cut-scenes between them, as Pliskin would continue to show more of his pain he suffered in the original game. My favourite game in the series is MGS3 because of the music and story-line.
One of my favorite franchises of all time! I played MGS4 for the 5th time and everytime I learn something new about the story lol.
This video was brilliant and extremely informing for anyone who missed out on any of the series, or newcomers to get the idea of how fantastic this story line is.
What camcorder have you used for this show? It has very nice and crisp image compared to Start/Select show. Also, green key is far superior.
Highly overrated series. MGS 1 was great for it's time and I enjoyed MGS 2 despite it's many shortcomings. MGS 3 & 4 had their moments but their clunking gameplay and story telling really brought them down to mediocre status in a more modern gaming age. Well done video though.
