Metal Gear Solid HD Collection launch trailer barely encapsulates why MGS is awesome

For the last decade you’ve probably heard much about Metal Gear Solid, and pretty much everything is true. It’s simultaneously unchained artistic brilliance, ridiculously convoluted, full of weird jokes, has some of the best graphics of its console generation, and barely makes sense if you think about it. Something that singular deserves to be celebrated (on top of the games just being fun to play), and this launch trailer for the HD Collection of Metal Gear Solid 2, 3 and Peace Walker gives you some idea of just how important this re-release is…

As you can see in the trailer, it comes with those three highly esteemed games and almost all the extra that were put in later versions of the titles, plus the formerly PSP-exclusive Peace Walker now has camera controls that take advantage of the twin sticks on both PS3 and 360. Our 9/10 review called it the best combo deal in gaming since Orange Box, which is high praise indeed. The collection went on sale today, with a regular edition and a special edition with a snazzy art book.

    I was the victim of a hate crime today. As all the MW3 fans quickly got their games and headed home to play I was forced to wait as i watched the clerk go to the back, bring a box to the counter and open it before i got my game. Really? Where are my MGS brothers in arms. I was really the first to get it at 6 pm. such sorrow fills my soul.

    I saw a trophy pop-up in the trailer, so it looks like it. Not sure how many achievements / trophies though.

    I assume (And by that, I mean HOPE) That there is a full, decent amount of trophies, with Platinums, for all 3 games, not including MG 1 and 2. Man, I'm so excited, March can't come quickly enough. I so hope Number 3 still has the kick-ass stairwell that sings. That was one of the greatest uses of sound in a game, EVER. And I'm so excited about getting to face off against The End again... I wonder if having, like, super surround-sound stereo has an effect on the battle, and you can hear which direction he's moving from? Cause that would be AWESOME.
