We thought the best way to get everyone excited for the Metal Gear Marathon was to teach everyone the rich, storied history of Metal Gear. So with some friends we tried to explain the series the only way we know how. 


Metal Gear Solid

Coming out of retirement, Solid Snake is needed to save the world from Metal Gear one last time, this time in the frozen North of Alaska.

Metal Gear Solid 2 - Sons of Liberty

I'm not even sure it's possible to explain Metal Gear Solid 2. There's a man in a mechanical octopus suit, a beautiful blonde elfin boy, and a vampire. Among other things.

Narrated by Chris

Metal Gear Solid 3 - Snake Eater

It's all cold war politics, comparisons to James Bond, and a grown adult forgetting the word 'Laboratory' in this episode of Drunk Metal Gear History!

Narrated by Jeet Samra

Metal Gear Solid 4 - Guns of the Patriots

Stricken with age, our hero Solid Snake has to cope with iPods, Nanomachines, and young break dancing ninjas. Back in my day we had subsistence, and we liked it.

Narrated by Kelly


Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker

Our inebriated soldiers ignore all borders with this episode of Drunk Metal Gear History. It's all about living on an offshore oil rig, singing robot monstrosities, and some dude named Hot Coldman.

Narrated by Hilary Dawson


Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

Our beautiful elven boy has grown up so fast. He's got a job with a PMC, became 90% robot, and hooked up with a lovely game studio called Platinum. We're so proud.
