Metal Gear Solid is rightly regarded as one of the best franchises in gaming history. In a world where 'franchise' is a dirty word thanks to the annual COD, Battlefield and FIFA updates; Metal Gear Solid has sidestepped that particular landmine by bringing something new to each iteration. The one thing that has stayed constant throughout? Solid Snake is an absolute badass. You will most likely remember Metal Gear Solid 2, but it is possibly with tears of regret as you recall Kojima wrenching control away from Solid Snake and giving it to Raiden; a protagonist who was inferior in every conceivable way. Luckily, this was merely a blip in the franchise as part three gave us the chance to control Snake in the jungle during the 60's; and it was awesome. But it is not only in Snake Eater that you will find any number of memorable moments. After all, with a character as cool as Snake, it would be hard to eat a piece of toast and not look badass; and so we have decided to comb through the franchise's history in search of the 10 best moments. There are spoilers for all Metal Gear games from the 1998 Playstation title onwards, so if you haven't played them yet - go out and get them, enjoy hours of supreme gaming goodness, then come back here, read this article and play them all over again. Yes they really are that good.
