The Spy Who Loved Me

Well, on Friday I finally completed Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. This was actually the second time with it, as the game froze for no apparent reason right near the end when I first played it over a year ago. With over 24 hours invested, I couldn’t find the patience to play through it all over again until just recently. Anyway, you get scored on how well you played the game with a rank at the end and for all of you on the edge of your seats out there, I got the ranking of “panther!” As the name implies, MGS3 was the third in the greatest series of video games I’ve ever played and I nutted every minute! I’ve already blogged about this magnificent game multiple times, so to save time here’s a brief rundown of the long love affair.

  • Oct 15, 2004 – When I first announced I wanted to get the damn thing
  • Feb 13, 2006 – Re-beating MGS1 and MGS2 in anticipation for playing MGS3
  • Apr 06, 2006 – My analysis after a few months into playing the game

Anyway … great game. And, just to give this blog a little bit of value, here’s my updated Top 10 video game list:

  1. Metal Gear Solid [PS1 1998]
