Let’s Play Metal Gear Solid for Playstation

Cubex55 is one of the best long-play video game recorders on Youtube. In the videos above, he plays through Metal Gear Solid for Playstation. MGS is another fantastic killer app for the Playstation that ranks up to the top with Final Fantasy VII.

As I have been posting these video game play throughs, I am reminded of the science fiction roots of some of the best video games. Perhaps it is the underlying technology or technoculture that informs the creation of these early games, but I wish that more popular games would return to science fictional roots. For example, the Wii could do much with its Wii-mote technology for a science fictional game that isn’t Star Wars-oriented, but I haven’t seen a solid science fiction game for the Wii. Do you know of one? Drop it in the comments.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
