Not only does it showcase Snake performing a HALO jump in perfect dramatic fashion, but it also serves as the first time players get a chance to peer into the eyes of the one Big Boss. At the time, the gaming world was eager for a new Metal Gear game, and the prospect of venturing in the jungle seemed almost too good to be true. Thankfully, Kojima failed to disappoint.
