“It's okay to make mistakes, right? You're only human, after all.”
-Mitsuo Aida
-Jobin Higashikata

A way too long video about a way too long game that gets way too personal by the end. A video that says everything I've ever wanted to say about Metal Gear Solid 4 for the past ten years so I never have to talk about this game again.

Metal Gear Solid 4 is deeply impressive, beautifully personal, and there is nothing like it in this medium.

seriously though fuck this game
