The 100 Greatest Games | 32 | Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots

YEAR: 2008     FORMAT: PS3

The 100 Greatest Games | 32 | Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots


Ditching the lofty overhead view of previous Metal Gears for a more intimate third-person perspective, Guns Of The Patriots took players closer to the action than ever before and evolved Hideo Kojima's stealth series for a new generation. One of the most technically stunning games in console history, MGS4's razor-sharp graphics, rousing soundtrack and Hollywood-style presentation made the adventure feel as accomplished as any multiplex blockbuster, and set new standards in digital storytelling. Madder than a badger's armpit but top fun nonetheless.

Memorable for...
The cutscenes. The endless, endless cutscenes. Don't get us wrong, we're all for in-game narrative, but playing for 10 minutes only to be forced to watch an hour-long cinematic can reduce even a grown man to tears, no matter how well-animated they are.
