A downloadable book
A critical companion to one of the most popular videogame series ever made.
Violent. Funny. Weird. Sexy. Political. Historical. Gothic. Incomprehensible. Brilliant. Awful. Original. Lazy. The very best of games. The very worst of games. Metal Gear Solid is all of these things and more. For twenty years, it has incited as much as it has entertained—thrilled and inflamed in equal measure. It begs analysis while at the same time defying simple definitions. To make any sense of Metal Gear Solid would surely take an entire book.
Hence Okay, Hero. By looking at how its identity has gradually changed, and the social and pop cultural events that have influenced it, we, the Bullet Points editorial team of Reid McCarter, Ed Smith, and Astrid Rose attempt in Okay, Hero to pin down precisely what makes Metal Gear Solid Metal Gear Solid; to identify the inspirations behind its bizarre sci-fi design, untangle its fraught relationships with sex and gender, and hone in on its ideas about the modern world.
Featuring a cover illustration by Sishir Bommakanti and interior design by Dan Solberg, Okay, Hero, includes an introduction and 12 chapters–-two each on Metal Gear Solid, Sons of Liberty, Snake Eater, Guns of the Patriots, Peace Walker, and The Phantom Pain written by Ed Smith and Reid McCarter and edited by Ed, Reid, and Astrid Rose.
