Well, it was actually over the last few weeks, but whatever.
Yes, over the last few weeks I have been "playing" through the entirity of the canon Metal Gear games, all the way from Metal Gear 1 to Portable Ops, which I am on now. The caveat is, I'm not actually playing them. I've watched Let's Plays for the console games and am watching a Longplay of POps. I realized that frankly, I dislike stealth gameplay. I always get caught and I'm not used to being patient in video games. The reason I like Let's Plays is that during the boring stealth parts there will always be some sort of hilarious commentary, but during the many cutscenes, they go quiet. This way I can easily absorb the story, which I love for all its craziness. I'm doing this so I can play MGS4 which came with my PS3 but which I never played. However, I might forgo that idea and just watch a Let's Play of it. There is one going, but, not being patient, I don't want to have to wait for updates. I'll probably watch when it's finished, though I'll certainly give MGS4 a try. I played a little bit of POps myself, but it was mostly the controls that turned me off.
Also, I'll eventually write a big blog about a certain big video-game related thing that happened to me, when I stop being lazy.
