Metal Gear Solid (PS)
Advantages: Gameplay and graphics
Disadvantages: A little old now
This was another step in the right direction for the Playstation ,after the huge success of Resident Evil, Tomb Radier and Gran Turismo. The big blockbuster games were coming thick and fast , each one trying to better the other. So when Konami threw their name in the hat they had to come up with something quite special to compete with the big titles that were getting churned out at the time.
But compete they did with this awesome espoinage game that started a domino effect of classic games for the PSX and PS2 to follow in fact the brand is still going strong as PS3 fans are presently anticipating the latest installment in this series. You play as Snake, a secret agent and have to manouver you're way around with different survival methods, creeping up and choking unsuspecting enemies and avoiding CCTV cameras as you go and stay out of the enemies sight.
The gameplay was amazing for its time as it was very easy to guide Snake around and all of his actions were easy to perform. Graphically this was an immense effort, although very dark it was also very fitting for the type of game it was. The sound was good and the voice acting was all very impressive as you are told where to go and what to do next.
Metal Gear Solid is just a brilliant game that's still pretty good to play now, the gameplay was so easy that it doesn't date that much. Thumbs up.
Summary: This is where it all started and worth checking out for all MGS fans
