I’m a firm believer that the next great work of art we produce is going to be a video game,

That's been done already. It's called ICO.

Your 8 is pretty kind, given that you have plenty of misgivings about the series, and more to the point, that some seriously odd choices were made in what to include in a collection marked as 'essential'. I was fully expecting a 6.

good review man, completely agreed with what you said. as much as I enjoyed it, MGS3 really does have too much menu-diving. plus this collection is missing out on a few too many things.


Oh no, it's a Goomba!

@asherdeus: It was to a page describing the 20th Anniversary Collection. I just removed it; problem solved. It seems URLs to sites outside HG.com will not work in reviews.

@espiga: I agree.

@sashanan: I can see where you're coming from. I think part of the problem is that I tried to cover way too much material at once. I would have scored each component differently. This review could really be broken up into four reviews.

Links to urls outside of HG don't work? Since when?


I don't have to boost my review resume because I have a real resume.

It only seems to be in reviews. For example, an anchor tag with HREF="www.google.com" will link to "http://www.honestgamers.com/www.google.com" instead.

When you do your a href tag, make sure you.include http://www. That should help you avoid broken links.
