Top 10 Facts Metal Gear
In 1986, a man by the name of Hideo Kojimajoined the Japanese game development company Konami as a designer and planner. Initiallyhe was disappointed with his assignments at the company and his ideas where often overlookeddue to his limited technological understanding. Early on he was given an assignment to developan action game based on modern military combat. During development this game was known asIntruder. However due to hardware limitations of the MSX2 home computer system, Kojima decidedto take the game in a completely different direction. Instead of combating enemies, thegame shifted focus to escaping and avoiding enemies. Executives at Konami were skepticaland thought a game based on the concept of
not shooting the enemy was a bad idea. Kojimastood by his new radical game design but also thought about leaving the company. After gettingsome advice and support from one of his superiors, he eventually decided to continue development.As the game developed, his co workers and superiors began to see the potential of astealth action game and realized that it was actually quite fun. The game revolves aroundthe special forces operative Solid Snake. His mission is to sneak into hostile territoryto destroy a dangerous weapon known as Metal Gear. And just like that, the game got it'sname. The MSX2 version of Metal Gear was released in Europe and Japan in 1987 and the NES versionwas released in North America in 1988.
Metal Gear was both a commercial and critical successand is one the first stealth games ever made. In 1990, Konami released an exclusive NorthAmerican sequel known as Snake's Revenge. Kojima himself was not involved in the developmentof this title so he decided to develop a sequel of his own known as Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.Metal Gear 2 is recognized by virtually everyone as the true sequel to Metal Gear. Kojima continuedto work on a third canonical installment simply called Metal Gear 3, with the aim of releasingit on the 3DO Interactive Multiplayer console. However, due to the declining support forthe 3DO, development was shifted to the new and popular PlayStation console. In 1998 Konamireleased Metal Gear Solid. Kojima decided
to retitled the game and has stated that theword quot;Solidquot; in the title has three distinct meanings. First and foremost, it's a referenceto the protagonist Solid Snake. Secondly, it's the first game in the franchise to use3D graphics. Because a solid is also a word used to describe a threedimensional shape.And thirdly, it's poking fun at rival game company Square. You know, because a squareis a twodimensional shape. Numerous canonical installmentsand spinoff titles has been released ever since spawning one of the most popular tutorial game franchises in history. Including the latest titleMetal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
At the very end of Metal Gear Solidthe real given name of protagonist Solid Snakeis revealed for the first time. Now it's a common misconceptionthat this name was chosen during development based on Snake's American voice actor DavidHayter. And it's easy to see why as Snake is even introduced like this during the prologueso many likely assumed that there's was a correlation between the two. But this is actuallynot the case. The Japanese script was written before the English version and it also statesthat Snake's real name is David. Not to mention that the Japanese voice over and the Englishscript was completed before David Hayter was
even hired to voice the character. The realinspiration for the name David actually comes from two separate sources.In the alternative ending the name is clearly a reference tothe movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. But in the canonical ending, whenMeryl is saved, she still refers to Snake as Dave even thoughthat 2001 reference is lost. Now it's easy to assume that she just said Dave insteadof David because the names are similar and are often used interchangeably. But this isMetal Gear so of course there's a deeper meaning. You see, in this ending it's actually a referenceto Hideo Kojima's previous game titled Policenauts.

Blind in the deepest night Reaching out, grasping for a fleeting memory All the thoughts, keep piercing this broken mind I fall, but I'm still standing motionless PIANO Far in the distance There is light, a light that burns these scars of old All this pain, reminds me of what I am
I'll live, I'll become all I need to be WOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHOOOOOOOOO Words that kill Would you speak them to meé With your breath so still, It makes me believe In the Father's sins Let me suffer now and never die
I'm alive Pride feeds their blackened hearts And the thirst must be quenched to fuel hypocrisy Cleansing flames is the only way to repent Renounce what made you Words that kill Would you speak them to meé With your breath so still, It makes me believe
The Sins never die Can't wash this blood off our hands Let the world fear us all It's just means to an end Our salvation lies in the Father's sins Beyond the truth, (Let me suffer now) In my heart I just know that there's no way to light up the dark in his eyes. SINS OF THE FATHER DONNA BURKE
