Metal Gear!? It can't be!

This is the NES port of the first entry in the ever-popular Metal Gear series, created by Hideo Kojima and developed and published by Konami; there are significant differences between it and the original MSX version. It is infamous for its engrish, containing such ever-popular phrases as "I FEEL ASLEEP!" and "UH - OH! THE TRUCK HAVE STARTED TO MOVE!".

This run utilizes quite a wide variety of game glitches and collects the minimal set of items needed to complete the game. Additionally, this movie improves the previous movie by 1.68 seconds, thanks to using a new trick called "boss lock" during the fight against Big Boss.
