| Metal Gear Solid is Art
The Metal Gear Solid franchise is hands down a piece of art. Perhaps one of the greatest stories I have ever experienced. This gaming franchise is the most advanced form of storytelling to date. Aristotle would be proud to see how far story and art have come. If you love stories then you have to play all three games, or at least watch the cut scenes on youtube. You would butcher some of its quality by just watching the cut scenes however. The gamers complaining about this game only complain because there just gamers not artists. Metal Gear Solid a remarkable art piece. Using both film and gaming as its medium. Think of it like a film that's as long as a novel, but you play and also watch throughout the experience. Games are around 8 hours, not 1-3 like films. Gaming is roughly a book which you get some control over as well as get to see visually on screen. If you enjoy art and story, get a PS3, Metal Gear Solid, MGS2, MGS3, MGS4 and play all of them in order. Play them on the easiest mode if you don't play games. 1 is the hardest so if you can't be it. Your option would be to get the remake version Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes on the gamecube, negative is you would have to buy a gamecube or just watch the cut scenes on youtube. Again is you love art and story you should miss this experience. It will change your life.
