The Metal Gear series of video games is infamous for its storytelling, but if you don’t have the time to play through dozens of hours of plot, this 'Metal Gear Solid Lore in a Minute' will suffice. Recapping the franchise up until Metal Gear Solid, the humorous video uses cutesy animations to narrate Solid Snake and Big Boss’ tales of heroism, and it does all of this in under 60 seconds. Talk about a time saver.
'Metal Gear Solid Lore in a Minute' was made by the team behind the YouTube channel Lore. The group uploads short animations dedicated entirely to abbreviating stories told in video games. Other videos they have produced include recaps for Legend of Zelda, Elder Scrolls, Halo, Mass Effect, Megaman and Castlevania. To date, Lore’s channel has over 16 million views.
