This week, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain took everyone’s attention by storm. It is, by all accounts, a fantastic finale for the series – or at least the part of the series written by creator Hideo Kojima – and with the two-decade anniversary of the PlayStation’s U.S. release coming up on September 9, we decided to celebrate early as a way to revisit the console that first revived Snake’s career. Kicking off with our five favorite PlayStation games, we then swing into MGS V, Mad Max, faceplate-friendly 3DSes and your favorite boss fights of all time.
