Widely considered to be one of the best and most influential games of all-time, Metal Gear Solid is a game I’ve been actively dodging for most of my life. Part of that stems from an anti-Sony bias that formed in the 90s that I’ve since shedded. Part of it came from being a stealth game. I hate stealth games with a passion (with one beautiful exception). Even when I bought a copy of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for under $10, I ended up selling it later on without ever playing it.
At long last, during a random PlayStation Classic stream, I did the thing. By the end of it, I wasn’t quite sure of what to do with this newfound knowledge.
Hot off the heels of Sony revealing the PlayStation 5 controller, I host an impromptu PlayStation Classic stream! We dabble in numerous games, from Metal Gear Solid to Rayman, while sharing our memories with the iconic console. Also, watch my mind melt as I play Metal Gear Solid for the first time!

Mr. Driller on the PS1 may look cute, but his quest to the bottom is treacherous. As he digs below the surface, he must be mindful of his depleting air supply and falling blocks that can flatten our hero like a pancake. How low can you go?
This December, Sony will make its debut in the mini console space with the PlayStation Classic. Packing 2 controllers and 20 games, I expect this console to sell incredibly well. But will I be picking one up? I don’t know.
