MGS Ground Zeroes: what we can learn from old Metal Gear

Different hero

The outrage, oh the outrage. After the original Metal Gear Solid’s incredible success, the hype surrounding its sequel was remarkable. A new and updated version of Kojima’s marvellous vision isn’t something that comes around particularly often, but this time there was a catch. Kojima swapped protagonists, sidelining the legendary Solid Snake for the over-exaggerated drama queen called Raiden. There were tears and pain, especially considering Raiden hadn’t been mentioned once in the run up to release. Could history be repeated with Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes?
