Metal Gear Arcade looks awesome, makes me sad

Recommended Videos

In most circumstances where the Japanese get something that we don’t see in the US or elsewhere, I’m pretty bummed but accepting. The cultures are different, and the consumers demand different products than the mainstream in other parts of the world. These circumstances are just the nature of the beast and we have no choice but to be understanding about it.

Once in a while — today, for example — my gut instinct is to drop to the floor, flailing my arms and legs like an unsatisfied toddler in a grocery store, screaming, “IT’S NOT FAIR!” I’ve long lamented the decline of the American arcade and it’s things like Metal Gear Arcade that pulls my long mourning into sharp relief.

Just look at these screenshots. Can you imagine being in a crowded room, holding a massive plastic gun and stealthily eliminating all resistance? Because I can and it hurts. Damn this culture and its desire to experience entertainment solely on its own terms, away from the prying eyes of others. I hate you all.
