While it may not be the first series that comes to mind, virtual reality would be a smart addition to Hideo Kojima’s famed stealth games. Upping the Metal Gear ante with the immersion and, well, realism VR devices allow only stands to make the games that much more mesmerizing. It could also make the series’ stranger moments a lot more creepy, but that seems like a fair trade-off.
It’s reasonable to assume the game would be at least partially first person, and if so, PlayStation Move could be implemented for a fresher approach to gunplay. The Wii had its fair share of awesomely precise motion controlled shooters, and though calling Metal Gear a “shooter” is a stretch (even with a perspective change), it’d likely benefit from precise VR aiming. Beyond that, sizing up areas pre-infiltration, sneaking under the cover of a cardboard box, or simply experiencing the series’ one-of-a-kind plot delivery up close and personal all have fantastic Morpheus potential.
