And probably, the series as a whole. In a heartfelt video Hideo Kojima, the creator and director of the Metal Gear Solid series, catches up with a few key collaborators and admirers of the Metal Gear Solid games. Naturally, they've got nothing but praise for the man and the series. And then the video takes a genuinely heartfelt turn, as Kojima-san visits the family of a Metal Gear fan who recently passed away. Fair warning, your eyes will leak a salty fluid.
