Nice write up. I also recently went through both games just so that I could say that I have gone through every main game in one of my favorite series.

Metal Gear was definitely a tough one to go through. I didn't have nearly as much trouble with the rolling pins and traps like you did though. Despite using a guide, my main issue was just forgetting where I had to go next or what I was doing next since I pretty much had to wait a week at a time to play it. It was definitely a game that I have no desire of replaying again.

Metal Gear 2 was much improved and I also enjoyed my time with it a lot more. The story was decent and I was genuinely surprised about Schneider being Black Ninja. Like the first, however, I had a tough time remembering what to do next because of the exact same problem of having to wait a week at a time to play.

I need to start reading his novels. I've heard a lot about him but have not had time to check out his books. He seemed like a cool guy.

I enjoyed it. I had been wanting to play it since it came out and since I got a PS4 with a free year of Plus, I finally got to try it out. I enjoyed the hell out of it, although I wish the story was a bit better. Despite that, I was surprised by the ending and enjoyed where that went.

I've dealt with anxiety my whole life. Ever since I was a kid, I've had it. It was extremely tough for me to go to school (among other reasons) and it eventually got so bad in my teenage years that I essentially became a hermit and did not leave the house. I ended up going to numerous psychiatrists and tried quite a few different medications for it (the last one gave me such severe side effects that I just quit trying to fix it that way). It was only after I got with someone that I started making the steps to overcome it (especially once I became a dad). Now, while I still struggle everyday with it, I have managed to keep it in check for the most part.

I'm the exact same way. It's something that I've grown used to although I do definitely need to learn to be more sociable. I still haven't quite grasped that concept yet.

Right here. I've read Warbreaker (first novel I read from him), Mistborn (just the first book so far, but I have the other two), and the Stormlight Archive books. I really have to catch up on reading Mistborn but I just have not had the time. Hopefully I can start reading them really soon since I've heard they get really good.

I think it is cool that he has his books connected in some way. I haven't really delved too far into it but I did know about Hoid. I've always enjoyed when an author does something like what Sanderson is doing.

Monster is a really good one.
