Background Information/Explanation (optional): Metal Gear is a series of stealth games published by Konami, starring the character Solid Snake as the main protagonist. It has been featured on 8 different consoles and the first game was released in 1987 for the MSX2 platform. Metal Gear games have been developed by Konami’s internal Hideo Kojima team, which were later included in the Metal Gear Solid series.

In Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3, Metal Gear Solid 4 and Metal Gear Solid 5, much of the game’s scenery is realistically proportioned. The player must use various tactics to evade or attack enemies so they can advance through the game’s locations while avoiding potentially fatal situations.
