MGS: The Evolution Of The Cardboard Box

[MGS, or rather, Metal Gear Solid, is a video game series created by Hideo Kojima that was conceived in 1987, when it was only called Metal Gear. The series has been around for 25 years now and as a big fan I’ve only known about them and played the games for less than a decade. That said, I’ve seen the evolution of the series and have grown to love it even more. One way I choose to express this is to write about some of these changes in the form of ‘MGS: The Evolution Of.” Whether you’re a fan or not I hope you enjoy.]


The cardboard box to many people is just an ordinary brown object folded in specific places to which, when each corner comes together, forms a 3-dimensional object in the form of a cube or rectangle. A cardboard box usually sits open side up and can be filled with objects, typically for transportation as a parcel or to just store needful things. In the Metal Gear world, it’s used upside down and is an ideal place to hide or take cover so as to avoid detection from ones enemies while trying to infiltrate certain areas, be they buildings, ships, or even thick jungle locales.
