Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, once thought to be the conclusion to the entire Metal Gear Solid franchise, received almost universal acclaim when it released in 2008. Hideo Kojima's creative vision of a near future in which both government and private oversight would create and maintain a perpetual war machine for profits seemed plausible enough at the time to serve as a dire warning of a new world to come. Does it hold up eight years later as one of the best games period?
Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative.
