Metal Gear - Legacy of the Patriots (Myth20c - Ep150)
Created in 1987, Konami’s Metal Gear series not only developed a new genre of video game with its incorporation of ‘tactics’ and ‘espionage’, it arguably transcended the entire video game category in its later iterations into the art, film and soap opera genres. Touching upon the human themes of duty, honor, and loyalty with the subjects of war, shadow governments, and technology, the series arguably captures more heavy political content in a single game than many academic scholars do in a lifetime. With the departure of creator Hideo Kojima, in the vein of Big Boss, who said the “best soldiers are useless without a war to fight,” perhaps the best franchises are useless without their original founders, whose creative vision is indelibly linked to the original art.
