Yesterday afternoon I decided to dig out a bunch of PlayStation 2 games and give them all a bit of a once over. Stretch their legs after a long time dormant so to speak. One of the games I dug out was Metal Slug 6. A title in the famous and much-loved Metal Slug series that I think doesn’t quite get the recognition it so richly deserves. When you ask someone which of the Metal Slug games is their personal favourite, you will nearly always receive responses around any title except Metal Slug 6. To be honest up unitl yesterday afternoon I would very likely have delivered the same response.
A while ago I made a decision. Since then I’ve made many hundreds of thousands of decisions, every second of my life in fact. But the decision I made ‘a while ago’ was a very important (cue pun) game-changing decision. I decided the end was near (and we’d just moved house and I hadn’t the room any more). It was time to say goodbye to the humble, beautiful world of the cathode ray tube.
