Metal Gear

Year: 1988
Developer: Konami
Publisher: Ultra
Players: 1

You may have heard of the Metal Gear Solid series of games on the PlayStation and other later systems. This popular game series owes its existence to the very first Metal Gear game appearing years earlier. Metal Gear was an absolute horrid military operation that became one of the most popular games on the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Your Name: Solid Snake
Your Mission: Destroy the Metal Gear weapon that will be used to terrorize the globe.

You're dropped in the middle of the jungle with nothing but a pack of cigarettes and a tranceiver. No weapons of any kind, just these two items and your fists. You must infiltrate the enemy camp located in a small African country. You're doing this alone, with only a few other people to communicate with through your tranceiver. Scary position to put a person in, eh? But hey, anything can happen in a video game.
