"Free Will and Defiance" Follow-Up #1: The Twin Snakes
For those of you out of the loop, Twin Snakes is unpopular within the Metal Gear fandom to a fairly significant degree, a view I reflected at least twice in "Free Will and Defiance." A Facebook friend of mine recently asked what my beef was with it, and my responses included the usual complaints, but also some low-level talk of how The Twin Snakes messes with how I personally interpreted Metal Gear Solid. Here is the meat of that, transcribed below. I'm only posting this because I don't ever want to have to answer the same questions about Twin Snakes. It's not a bad game, it's just not Metal Gear Solid. Not really.
