Many players think that Metal Gear Solid was the first stealth game, but these games came out before that.
Metal Gear Solid made stealth games famous by putting players in control of the main character, Snake, and his often strange adventures in the game’s world. It came out in 1998 for the PlayStation 1, and many people think it was the first spy game.
Some gamers might be surprised to learn that spy games came out before Metal Gear Solid. MGS helped make the stealth genre famous, but these games helped start the franchise. This makes them the “parents” of the stealth genre, which is a name that is often given to the first MGS game.
