It used to be that I actually hated stealth games. The idea of being cast as a badass soldier of whenever, an operative whose pockets could double as a mobile TARDIS and was home to all manner of gear and weapons while being incredibly fragile to even the merest hint of a bullet didn’t exactly interest me. But I’ve softened my view on such games as of late.

Because the genre has been magnificent lately. I think Dishonored brought me back into the sneaky fold a couple of years ago, while games like the episodic Hitman series and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided have really hammered home how solid stealth mechancis can only work when they’re tag-teaming with even more concrete level design.

And then there’s the big boss of the genre, Metal Gear Solid. By all accounts, Metal Gear Solid V was a damn good game last year as our local spaghetti mop will wax lyrical about it when prodded. It was also a game beset by all manner of controversy and some piecemeal content plans from Konami as they made damn sure that nobody whose name rhymes with Video Mojito ever worked for them. And that definitive rewriting of history is getting an even more definitive edition on October 11 in Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience. Definitely.

Metal Gear Solid V Def Experience

Well at least it’s not yet another title claiming to be a Game of the Year release. Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience will pack in the Ground Zeroes prologue with the core game and a host of DLC, presumably while hardcore fans shake their fists at it. Here’s a handy list of what’s inside of it:

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
