The PlayStation Showcase offered an early look at a variety of new games coming to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation VR, but the biggest reveal was undoubtedly the remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. The title is one of the industry’s worst-kept secrets, and it’s finally out. The immediate reaction, naturally, was excitement, especially from the GameSpot team. But after a few hours, concerns began to arise.
Metal Gear Solid is one of the biggest and most famous video game franchises of all time, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is considered one of the best games of all time. But there is cynicism and skepticism surrounding Konami’s ability to do justice to the franchise and the game. In this week’s episode of Spot On, Metal Gear Solid fans Lucy and Tamur discuss why they’re concerned about the project, delving into some of the key questions that remain unanswered and why they might be worrying.
