So I finally finished Metal Gear Solid 2, the game I mentioned in an earlier post.
Man, what a complicated bunch of shit. By the end of the game, I didn’t even really know what was going on. I know through out the course of playing it, I’m blew up a harrier jet with a rocket launcher (awesome), saw a bisexual vampire die a few times (confusing), had the video game tell me that I’d been playing for too long (bizarre), and gotten into multiple arguments with the main character’s virtual girlfriend Rose (annoying). By the time I got to the part where I was blowing up huge mechs, I didn’t care.
In fact, I could barely bring myself to kill Raiden’s clone father. I guess it was his clone father. I don’t know how to even describe that relationship.
