So you're actually calling the original Tomb Raider "horseshit"? Dan, are you trolling again?

I seem to remember that the first and second TR was pretty great and then it went rapidly downhill until the new game came out.

Posted by MooseyMcMan

@drewbert "Metal Gear" has been retconned in fiction to be the "metal gear" between infantry and artillery. The reason being that it combines the firepower of artillery with the mobility of of infantry.

Keep in mind, that was in MGS3, and it was a drunken Russian scientist who said it in the game, so I think even within fiction, they are aware that it's a little silly.

MGS Endurance Run!

woohooo - old demos

Posted by MadHatter76

This was a great video! I look forward to more in the series!

Also thanks for reminding me how terrible the original Tomb Raider games controlled. I remember being upset because I had a Saturn instead of a PS1 and Tomb Raider 2 didn't come out on Saturn. Now I realize I was spared.

I played the shit out of that disc

Posted by Joe423

God, I remember these things. Dan waxing lyrical about Metal Gear Solid makes me want to give it another try, I was terrible at the gamecube remake.

Miss the demo disc days.

Posted by friendlydave

Would watch a Metal Gear series!

Edited by sebly

I would watch a series of Dan explaining MGS to Drew...

Posted by WarOnHugs

Man that's one hell of a demo disk.

Posted by Naoiko

Sweet! =D

Edited by JayHayabusa

Amazing intro!

Posted by Vextroid

This is awesome. Hope Dan pulls out more Demo disks.

As for the fake name in MGS, it was a voice actors union thing. The VA's had to use pseudonyms.

ie: Sean Barker = David Hayter

Christopher Fritz = Christopher Randolph (Otacon).

Also maybe a feature were @danryckert watches @drewbert play through MGS 1 - 4?

@danryckert I spent a lot of time with demo discs too. Start+Select used to reset a lot of those old demo discs and if you have any with the game thumbnails floating in individual squares you can usually hit the shoulder buttons to spin them around and find hidden codes.

Posted by parentalcon

Okay. Real talk, Dan. You know that you want to do a MGS 1 endurance run and I know that I want you to do a MGS 1 endurance run. So make it happen. Thank you.

Oh man, talk about memories.

Watching the Metal Gear part again I would also love to see a Dan/Drew Metal Gear Series Endurance Run.

Posted by mlarrabee

Demo disks contain some of my favorite game experiences.

Posted by StoneGut

Oh the memories! Great video guys!

Posted by The_Big_Rough

There is really no option but to love Dan so much xD

Posted by thePoark

Loved this feature. Looking forward to the next installment!

Edited by SomeJerk

Love this so much. I've got a PS1 and GT1 and I only need a memory-card and I'll stream Gran Turismo no shame. 30fps but a damned fine game, aged very well. I hope to unlock the 60fps arcade mode special this time around.

Edited by WooDooUK

"It seems a bit ahead of its time" That basically sums up Gran Turismo 1

There had been NOTHING like it! Nothing but Ridge Racer and Kart racers.

Posted by soulcake

I guess i am mad @danryckert still think the original DK country is better then the new one's.

Posted by Danforth

Well, now I have to go play MGS again...

It hurts my fingers just watching Dan trying to play Tomb Raider

Posted by DonChipotle

Dan and Drew for best team.

Posted by Triumvir

The Medieval games were awesome. I really wish they'd remake them or put a new one out as a PSN title.

Posted by Axersia

Funny you should mention wanting to watch @drewbert play through the MGS series while commentating on it, @danryckert. See, there's this thing we like to do here on Giant Bomb called an Endurance Run...

Man, Metal Gear really is the best, craziest most insane series of all time.

Can't wait for The Phantom Pain.

Posted by DudeFromJersey

This is great! Good times!

Posted by Gnubberen

I used to get the danish official playstation magazine, which always included a demo disc. So I remember playing a ton of demo disc back in the days. Now I feel bad for throwing most of them out.

Premium: Metal Gear Drew Featuring Dan Cam coming up? Drew playing through the games with Dan trying to explain stuff?

Posted by cbarnes86

Great feature! I used to play the hell out of some demo discs!

Posted by batman1105

We need a Dan and Drew MGS franchise endurance run!!!!!!!!

Posted by vorpalparasite

All discs should come with pizza.

Posted by Kazzahdrane

If there's a Domino's Demo Disc, Jeff's mind will be blown.

Posted by A_Velociraptor

I would love to watch Drew play Metal Gear Solid for the first time and see his reactions to all the crazy.
