Metal Gear Solid 4: "Old Snake"
Posted: Monday June 16th, 2008 by

In the latest Metal Gear installation, Metal Gear Solid 4 Guns of the Patriot an aging Solid Snake, now operating as "Old Snake", must rise to meet the challenges of Lquid Ocelot's newest plans. And of course the fate of the world hangs in the balance... again.

My understanding of the game is that this is Snake's "final hoorah" and on some level his "advancing age" plays a factor (whether that's a gameplay mechanic or just an element of the plot is unclear).

Personally, I say they just shed the pretense and call it like it is. Don't get me wrong, I applaud Konami for actually allowing us to experience the game through a character that exists within a "realistic" framework. So many games out there never allow their characters to "age". But, the cynic in me just says "by now they could have found a younger, faster, more capable agent, right?"

So yeah, reading about Snake's stiff joints amused me and I kicked an already rolling ball. From here I say we just toss a cardboard box over him and call it a day.

And thus shall I end my video gaming blasphemy.
