Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zeroes - Big Boss.jpg

 

At this year’s E3, Konami and Kojima Productions released a new trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, showing off just how stunning this upcoming open world stealth game is, even at this early stage in development. As a lead up to The Phantom Pain, earlier this year Konami released Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, a prologue of sorts that offers a sampling of the future direction for this renowned gaming series. You might have heard that Ground Zeroes is short, and been turned off by that, but don’t let the game’s reported length discourage you – this game offers a lot more than you might think. If you’re a Metal Gear Solid fan, Ground Zeroes is must-play, and there are plenty of reasons why.

Wolfenstein The New Order Title.jpg

 

The history of video games is certainly interesting, littered with amazing stories of success and failure.  Some games will go on to create huge franchises and live on way past their initial release or platforms lifespan. Games like Super Mario Bros and Pac-Man come to mind as they have lived on long enough to ingrain themselves solidly into pop culture. These games might be household names but they certainly didn’t re-invent anything at the time. One game that not only was a huge success but also created a whole new genre is Wolfenstein 3D. Its legacy lives on today in the latest game to grace the name, with Wolfenstein: The New Order.
