Fans are organizing a Metal Gear 30th Anniversary Event

Update: Here are some photos of the event.

Original story:

Metal Gear turned 30 this year, and a group of fans from France have taken it upon themselves to organize their own event celebrating the series’ three decade anniversary. The event will take place in the Pixel Museum in Schiltigheim, France, on October 28th. It is being supported by Konami France and the Pixel Museum, among others. To finance the whole thing the team is holding a crowdfunding campaign as well.

The event is described as follows:

This event ”Metal Gear 30th Anniversary” is a fan-made event, made by fans and for the fans.
Its goal is to celebrate 30 years of one of the biggest video game franchise ever created, Metal Gear, which first game was released in September 1987 in Europe, as the result of the teamwork between Konami and visionnary Hideo Kojima.
This project, brought by Legacy, is very ambitious, but if everything goes well, we promise you something unique you’ll always remember.

This event will be about 3 majors plots, and is also unique.

Community

Considered by the fans as ended, the saga will be exposed from its very beginning till what it became now.
So, through artworks, free-access games, fans will be able to commemorate all TOGETHER what bring us all here. This is the Metal Gear community.

Meetings

For sure, who says unique event, says also unique guests. We’ll do everything we can to ensure fans meeting people who made the saga possible, some directly involved in the creation proccess, some others who worked on their own about the games with passion. So, as we are also fans ourselves, we can understand what the community is expecting.

Future

So, even if we admit that the saga is ended in its history frame and its creator now fly with his own wings, the best is yet to come. On one side, Konami, actual owner of the franchise, tries something tricky with Metal Gear Survive, their coop vision of Metal Gear Solid. On the other side, Hideo Kojima, fulfill his dream, with the creation of Death Stranding, which is fervently awaited by the gaming community. The values of this event stand on these 3 plots, in which we will add some extra activities, such as a photocall, also a raffle, which benefits will go to the artists.
You must know that we really want to create something special, make this day unique, marking the end of an era, and the begining of new ones.

    I have a question! Does anyone here really celebrate video games anniversaries? By celebrating I mean baking cake, inviting friends, drinking and you know all that stuff we usually put into “celebrating anything”.

    • I celebrated them with friends when I visited Blizzcon for WoW anniversary. So much fun, but other than that not enough time for the preparations and the biggest issue here is ofc. ppl’s taste. People like different stuff when it comes to video game culture.
      People celebrate and can reunite at “cons” but for some single game even if it is a masterpiece, that can be a bit tricky. Maybe a local party, I dunno.

      My experience.

    • You don’t?

      • Eugene Voldo

        No, my liver can only celebrate traditional celebrations like Christmas and Easter and not much else 😀

      I actually used to do it with 4 local friends who are hardcore metal gear fans, we used to meet up at my place, they would bring beer and wine while i would prep the food and snacks. We would play drunk-MGS marathon exchanging the controller between each other, and laugh how hard we sucked at certain parts of the games.

      Sadly the tradition stopped around 2011, since we all went on different career paths…miss those times.

      Not quite sure what looks amazing here? Guy firing some bullets, running towards and aiming at Wanzer. To me it looks like a generic TPS right now.
      Though I love Dostoyevsky, so this part of the trailer is good.

      Hope they improve on those animations (post 1:06).

      What is there in the red circle ? I mean I totally see the resemblance even in the red square Enix logo, this could be like a futuristic metal gear but in this picture in the red circle I don’t really see anything related to metal gear.

      Apparently, the Left Alive developers also consulted with Kojima for character designs, and they “got [his] consent,” whatever that means. Shinkawa also did some mech designs.
