11 years later, Otacon and Snake’s bro hug gets media attention

Here’s a strange one for you: GameInformer just posted a piece on the moment in Metal Gear Solid 2 when Snake and Otacon do their handshake and bro hug.  As far as I can tell, nothing prompted the article, but I did notice it was categorized under “moments”.  I guess they just pick random moments from gaming and write about them.

Perhaps I make too much of it, but I always find it funny when game sites look back fondly at MGS2, considering how much hate it generated in the media — that is to say, after all the asskissing they did at first.  Feelings toward the game seem to go up and down with the times, eh?  Funny how Snake Eater was all about shifting perceptions of the times…
