“Babe, I got a PS3!”
I won’t forget when my boyfriend first said those words to me. It was a couple weeks ago, and I was at work staring at a monitor displaying my store’s poor performance results. I shuffled my feet around, punched in a few keys and swept my eyes across the sales floor.
At first, I didn’t believe him. I had strongly suggested he wait until Final Fantasy XIII was released. But he wanted to play Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots so bad that he couldn’t wait.
Well, I’m glad he didn’t. MGS4 is the best game I’ve played in years. It hooked me the second I played it and kept me engaged throughout. It’s the first MGS game I’ve played seriously, but I didn’t feel lost in the story or less attached. My heart latched onto Old Snake as soon as I saw him, feeling sorry for such an old person having to fight.
I’ve tried to play the game as much as I could since we got the PS3. I guess that’s why I didn’t post about it. I’ve beaten the game and already I want to play it again. It was simply incredible.
