Konami is bringing back a ton of classic games to PC, including the original Metal Gear, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance and Konami Collector's Series: Castlevania & Contra.

You can find these classic Konami games available for purchase on GOG's website. If you haven't heard of it before, don't worry, it's a totally legit platform.

They're pricey for 20+ year old games

The original Metal Gear costs $6, which is fine, but Metal Gear Solid is a whopping $10, and that game is 20 years old. Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain is on sale for $5 right now on Steam.

There's no reason why any of these old games should be selling in the double digits. You could argue that Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance ($10) deserves it, but it's still pretty wild. 

Meanwhile, you can pick up the Konami Collector's Series: Castlevania & Contra for just $6. It comes with Castlevania, Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, Contra and Super C.

At the very least, there are a ton of classic games finally available to play without needing to obtain them by nefarious means.

He reviews every shape and form of a laptop as well as all sorts of cool tech. You can find him sitting at his desk surrounded by a hoarder's dream of laptops, and when he navigates his way out to civilization, you can catch him watching really bad anime or playing some kind of painfully difficult game. He’s the best at every game and he just doesn’t lose. That’s why you’ll occasionally catch his byline in Tom’s Guide, taking on the latest Souls-like challenge.
