So, for those of you that don't know much about me, I love Metal Gear, like a lot. In fact saying I love it may be an understatement in itself. As I sit here and stare at my profile picture and all of my Metal Gear games and related items around me this becomes painfully apparent. It is because of this profound adoration that I try to play through the main series at least once a year and all of the information coming out about Metal Gear Solid 5 has got me particularly eager to jump in. Whether you have already played and love the series or are just curious to see what Metal Gear is all about, why not stop by and "Chill With Phil" on your Saturday night! 

So this is the part of the post where I detail out how this playthrough is going to go down. First off, no, I am NOT playing the Twin Snakes version of MGS. For the sake of flashbacks in later games on top of the fact that I love showing how games in a series have grown and changed as they have went on this is the way we are going to do it. Going hand in hand with my "showing how games have changed" angle I REFUSE to play the series in chronological order as this, to simply put it, is the wrong way to play it. I mean you can have your opinion, but it's just not the right one. <3

If you disagree with this I implore you to rationalize why you think that chronological order is the way to play through down in the comments.

We started pondering metaverse theory because AssCreed Unity is boring

Max and I were fighting to stay awake through the beginning of Assassin's Creed Unity, and Max posited a theory that many Ubisoft published games exist in the same universe. Then we saw a fancy boy and a pig and at least had something to joke about for a while.more

Max outs Kevin Spacey as sassy and mean while we play Advanced Warfare

Max and I were trudging along in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, when I shared a gut feeling that Kevin Spacey is not a very nice person. Max proceeded to share a story related by an ex-girlfriend, who had her adoration of Spacey crushed by that rude, kissy man.more

We played Assassin's Creed Unity, and it was doomed from the start

Oh boy... Max and I jumped into Assassin's Creed Unity. Max started out cautiously excited at what this new iteration might bring, while I have never been at all interested in the series. It's not long before both of our sentiments landed at the same astonished disappointment. Trust me, it only gets uglier from here.more
