Mad Paddy O'Semtex: Metal Gear Solid 2's intro, and all five playable minutes of Rez
I can never leave it short and sweet, so I'm going to go for both
the most beautiful, most painful moments in my console gaming experience.
This happens to me every time I put my Metal Gear Solid 2 disc into my playstation.
intro sequence is unrivalled in the histories of both video games
and cinema. I would pay £35 just for that sequence. The green

Your favourite music video doesn't even come close to this.
you have to take the good with the bad, and this is true agony. Another
PS2 game, I'm afraid to say, (and Dreamcast too - Oberon) but

It's like acid, but with worse headaches and trippier giant-mutant-killer-spiders.
We love this game.
