The Reality of Metal Gear Solid 2
Today is the tenth anniversary of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty in Japan. A few weeks ago during the 13th, the tenth anniversary of Sons of Liberty's release in North America, I announced a video I was working on called The Reality of Metal Gear Solid 2. Today, I bring you that video.

Also, thanks to all the folks who watched this with us at midnight on TinyChat. Loads of fun. Especially the guy with the video of the guy lighting his fart on fire. Oh and thank Dwayne Billie for convincing me not to scrap the whole project and just write another article.

Looking forward to watching this when I get home. MGS2 is great. I played this game everyday for the longest time when it was released. Truly the best Metal Gear Solid.

"Soundtrack - All used without permission" My favourite part. :lol:

Seriously, great video, loved it, but the music is too loud and makes it hard to understand what's being said at times. Other than that, great work, as always.

It would be great if you subtitle the video, overcoat for these who don't understand very well the language of Shakespeare Smile

And many thanks for this!

It was a good film, and I think it was definitely something that needed to be said.

I give it a 9/10 because the font wasn't Comic Sans.

sorry ravi
I think it was too much hype over very little 'substance', in the video you repeat yourself over and over, i think the video is way too short for a subject so big as sons of liberty.

I still can't believe I missed the fucking premiere. I fail at life.

Will watch as soon as it loads up.

The subject was 10 years of missing a basic point. When people spend this long around something and continually miss the point you may need to rephrase things several times to find a way of saying it that they understand.

I think that this contrasts the arguments about MGS2 being VR or not by slapping facts and opinions down in a video pretty well, and comes at it in a way that really ignores what may or may not be true about a videogame and instead just accepts it as whatever the viewer wants, and asks them to actually take something away from it instead of collecting facts about it.

It was great! I have always love something about MGS 2 that i could never put my finger on. I really believe that it is the open endedness. Well also that jazzy feel. MGS 4 was to much of a matter of fact type of game. Too straight forward.
