The lights are on
Did You Know Gaming is an informative video series on Youtube that digs up history and trivia about certain games. In the past they've covered the likes of The Simpsons: Hit and Run as well as Star Wars games that were cancelled for various reasons. The latest video infiltrates the lesser-known bits of the first Metal Gear Solid's history.
Among the more interesting tidbits is Kojima describing what he wanted Snake to look like originally and a rundown of just how many scenarios that pop up in Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake actually appear again later in Metal Gear Solid; said scenarios includes a fight on an elevator with some bad guys where you're outnumbered and a sequence where you battle a frenemy ninja. You can watch the video here:
