Metal Gear Solid: Philanthropy Fan Film


Reader Darthy thinks this Metal Gear Solid fanfilm is one of the best he's ever seen. It's over an hour put together by an enthusiastic bunch of fans and Italian film students. All on a Budget of a mere 10,000 Euros, apparently. Of course, it's been a while since MGS has appeared on the PC - MGS2 was the last - but Snake's still a PC character. I always have a divided response to this kind of high-gloss fan-tribute. Part of me is amazed at the amount of effort they've thrown into it. Part of me is crushingly disappointed that they've chosen to waste their creative drive so... but even that's tempered with the knowledge that someone's creative drives is theirs to spend however they choose. Admittedly, I'm as about as likely to actually watch the fan film as I am to sit through any of MGS4's cut-scenes - and there is the irony is that the fan-film is actually shorter than the longest MGS4 cut-scene. You can get it from here or find it embedded below...

Well done at getting this done. It really is an impressive amount of work.
