We all know Solid Snake. But he hasn’t always been the old and legendary soldier that we follow in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. In fact, he hasn’t always been “solid”. There was a time in which Snake was nothing but a bunch of 2D pixels, and our fertile imagination did the rest. The first Metal Gear game was released back in 1987, and console graphics have changed since then, turning a pixel humanoid into a 3D model so realistic that we can now can count Snake’s freckles if we get close enough. Our experts Javier and Paloma show you the graphic evolution of our favorite soldier through ages with this infographic.
