Good, now I can openly gush about the game that reminded me how much fun this hobby can be. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is a game that deserves applause.

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots PS3 Review
29 May 2010
Excerpt: I have got to admit that over the course of the Metal Gear Solid series I have grown fond of the recurring cast. The story has always been compelling enough to endure the long and fantastic cut-scenes, which have always been lengthy enough to bring about mixed feelings amongst gamers. Many of us will want to play the fourth and final chapter in the series, simply to find out the outcomes and revelations of each characters story.
Excerpt: Briefing In 1967, the great critic Kenneth Tynan wrote in The Times of London, describing The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club band as “a decisive moment in the history of Western civilization.” The comment showed a remarkable prescience: 40 years later, Sgt. Pepper’s is widely hailed as the best album of all time.
Excerpt: Metal Gear Solid is a big deal for a lot of people. Cinematic gaming probably wouldn't be where it is today if Hideo Kojima and his team hadn't brought us the original PlayStation game and for many the series stands way ahead of the pack. It's been far from a smooth ride though. Awkward controls and a convoluted, often overacted story made the PlayStation 2 games an acquired taste.
Excerpt: Bullets whiz over your prone body as you sneak through the forest. Mortar fire can be heard in the distance, screeching above. The mortar strikes the ground with force, kicking up dust, dirt and debris, eliciting a wince. You keep going – after all, you’ve got a job to do.
Summary: Parents need to know that this game is part of the Metal Gear franchise, which spans several games, books, comics, soundtrack CDs, and toys. It ' a violent and decidedly mature game featuring extensive and bloody gunplay and knife fights, as well as glamorized use of tobacco, romantic topics, and some profanity. However, the game's primary theme is one of pacifism.
Excerpt: After about thirty years of being a mass medium, videogames have a few auteurs—people whose individual mark can be seen on a final product in spite of being created by a multi-person team. Undoubtedly, the big daddy of them all is Shigeru Miyamoto, who practically single-handedly saved the modern gaming industry from its downward swirl in the E.T. -laden toilet of the early 1980s.
