Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

released on Nov 13, 2001

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty is the sequel to the espionage action game Metal Gear Solid. Much of the gameplay remains the same, as the game's protagonist has to sneak past guards, outsmart them using various gadgets and defeat the tricky boss enemies. The game expanded its predecessor's cover mechanic, with Solid Snake or Raiden able to take cover behind walls or objects and pop out to shoot at enemies, while the improved enemy AI allowed enemies to also take cover from the player. Metal Gear Solid 2 is considered to be one of the greatest video games of all time, as well as a leading example of artistic expression in video games.

Teenage me thought this game was so perfect and brilliant and she would be so disappointed in 30-year-old me for thinking it’s kind of a mess

you should be required to study this before becoming an online moderator
the bulk of the game is "just" a great stealth game with wacky (in a good way) character writing, but the final 2-3 hours consist of kojima disengaging the brakes and making clear in no uncertain terms that YOU (I) are not only stupid, but also a freak for doubting him, and you POSSIBLY eat dog food for fun

Idk how to not sounds like I'm repeating myself a bit since this game is pretty similar to 1 with yet again a story focused game I will say the gameplay is much better and stealth mechanic is great.
