    This is cool. The Contra and Castlevania games have been available in collections on Steam since last year, but I think this is the first digital distribution of the older Metal Gear games. They got PC ports but it was decades ago and physical only. The last time Metal Gear was released for PC was 30 years ago.

    Now do Silent Hill games next.

As the price is so low, I can still see the attraction of a DRM-free legal digital copy of the games.

      MGS1 probably has the best story of the series, but the themes and ideas behind Metal Gear Solid 2 may have been the more prescient and interesting. Definitely worth a play through (and then remind yourself it came out twenty years ago).
