It's hard to imagine that one of the most important games of the sixth-generation of console gaming is already a decade old... And it still resonates with fans of the franchise to this day!
Originally released on November 17, 2004 for the Playstation 2, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater has officially turned 10 years today, and the game remains a critically acclaimed video game as well as one of the most important installments of Konami's long-running Metal Gear series created by Hideo Kojima. The game is set in 1964, and introduces gamers to the origins of Naked Snake, the man who will grow to become the legendary soldier known as "Big Boss", and his "Baptism of Fire" through his very first mission to put a stop to a deadly nuclear weapon and assassinate a central figure important to him that will change his life forever.
Changing the rules and breaking boundaries, Snake Eater went on to have several re-releases and ports through the years, with the most recent being an HD re-release in the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PS Vita. If you haven't dived into a Metal Gear game yet and want to experience first hand the events that lead up to the upcoming game that is Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, then this is the game you should start with and play before anything else.
