The original Metal Gear was released for MSX and was the first game of the famous Hideo Kojima. It featured the main character of the series Solid Snake when he tried to destroy the original Metal Gear, the mechanism for launching nuclear missiles.

In 1990, it received a sequel called Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, but the franchise soon died down until Metal Gear Solid was released for the original PlayStation in 1998, forming what would become one of the most iconic franchises in video games, which ended with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain 2015 (not counting the poorly received spin-off Metal Gear Survive).
