    Classic Metal Gear games are hitting the PC platform once more, as Konami has confirmed today. The original Metal Gear, Metal Gear Solid, and Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance are now available on modern computers through GOG. Not only that, but a handful of retro Konami games such as Castlevania 1, 2, and 3, along with the original Contra and Super C have also launched on GOG for PC. The classic Castlevania & Contra collection will cost $5.99, and so will Metal Gear, while both Metal Gear Solid 1 and 2 are priced at $9.99 each. According to Konami, these games offer better graphics, new options, quick saves, and even new gameplay modes.

    This is awesome to see Konami utilizing the MGS IP for something. I’m so happy it’s GOG too. The more DRM-free shit the better.

    Shame we probably won’t see 3 since it didn’t already have a PC port. Would like to see Revengeance and 5, too. And 4 so it’s not trapped on the PS3 but that’s never happening.

    Nice, I first played MGS 1 and 2 on PC, never played them on PS1/PS2 until much later on after release, so this will definitely be a welcome addition to library.

    Best series of all time IMO. I have even beaten Metal Gear 1 and 2 (not even talking about Solids which of course I also beat) So sad we will never get another Kojima MGS.

    You shouldn't really get these... They're pretty broken ports from the early 2000s.

    Are these really based on the old ports?

    Yep. Same problems, same bugs, same limitations. Unofficial patches are still needed if you want a decent experience. Or just emulate them.

    Oh wow $6 for the collection?
    That's really cheap!

    If this was Nintendo and the first three SMB, shit would be like 10 times that price, 5 times at least haha

    Wow, an actual good use of the Metal Gear IP, this is pretty nice to see! Especially as a Metal Gear fan, just seeing these games come to more platforms is great.

    3 was never ported to PC. Only 1, 2, and 5 of the main series are on PC.

    At $5.99 for the Castlevania/Contra collection, I'll pick it up just to show support for Castlevania in a desperate hope that they revive the franchise

    I'm sure i played HD collection which has 2-3-PW, MGS3 also has the original MG and MG2! Wait, it was on X360!
    the HD port for pc doesn't include MGS3?!

    The HD collection was never on PC, just PS3/360/Vita.
