Solid as a Snake

I just bought Metal Gear Solid 2!!

To my knowledge, this was THE first PC game EVER to be released on a DVD-Rom, and that happened at a time when A HELL of a lot of gamers still did not have a DVD-Rom drive (hell, those things were EXPENSIVE!!!). Now I may be mistaken about what I recall, and I’m not fucked to look it up, but I really do not recall ANY PC game before this that was out on DVD-Rom. I remember thinking it was so outrageous to pull a stunt like that – freezing out PC gamers even more broke than I was (and still am) from enjoying what was obviously already a cult classic franchise by that point.

I remember first trying this game out and although I was total shit at it, I do remember being really impressed by the fact you could actually see the breath of the main character in the cold. I wonder if I’m any less shit at it in 2020!

I'm a gamer. I'm a coaster. I am happy in general. We're all born by chance and we're all gonna die. That makes me no better or worse than you. Get over that fact and we'll probably get along. I comment on the Google news feed a lot. Oh, and I swear quite a lot.
