    Blowing up our first tank was a refreshing experience — why couldn't Vulcan Raven have been this easy?
  • Even after each one of the teeth-clenching boss battles was over, there was still plenty to enjoy.

  • There wasn't any parkour in this game, but Snake still wears the assassin cloak like a pro.

  • 'Gah! The stealth camo doesn't work!'

  • Old tricks are always the best.

  • There's always a recurring gag in Metal Gear Solid, and poor Johnny Sasaki's always the butt of the joke.

  • Wonder what those ravens have been eating during the last 10 years?

  • Thanks to the taser and stealth camo, the Mk. III's one of the best Otacon inventions yet.

  • Out of the entire Beauty and the Beast unit, Laughing Octopus is still our favorite.

  • It's like it's 1998 again!

  • Helping kill resident freakshow Vamp was just about the only thing that redeemed Naomi for tonnes of gamers — after all, pretty much everything in the first two games is her fault.

  • Every once in a while, simply taking a step back to appreciate the graphics reminded us just how far the series had come.

  • The Beauty and the Beast Unit are just as deadly as they are sexy, and they're good in front a camera, too.

  • Confirmed in Metal Gear Solid 5: ALIENS!

  • 'Hmm... a security camera?'
