In the realm of video game plots, a select few have proven timeless. And in Hideo Kojima’s seminal series, the plots aren’t just timeless--they’re the stuff of adrenaline-fueled legend, spanning the globe in places both fictional and real.
The Metal Gear story has taken us through civil war. It’s shown us broken soldiers. It has taken sharp turns, tumbled down rabbit holes, and crashed face first into numerous dead ends. But with each sequel comes the promise of new allies, new villains and new locales, from the dense jungles of Central Asia, to the narrow confines of a tanker on the Hudson River. Each environment provides new challenges, yes, but helps define the narrative as well. What is Die Hard without the Nakatomi Plaza Building? Predator without the jungle? The Rock without Alcatraz Island?
With Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain looming on the horizon, use the arrows in the interactive map below to follow in the footsteps of Kojima's titans.
