When it comes to iconic video games, there are few that stand out more than the Metal Gear series. I was instantly hooked when I first played Metal Gear Solid, and have been a huge fan of the franchise since. While Solid Snake is basically the character who makes the whole thing, I learned to appreciate and even like Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (after my initial irritation that the game wasn't playable as Snake). It took me a while to get there, but I finally did.

I was happy to see him get his own game as a cyborg ninja in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, though I never actually got around to playing that title on a traditional console. I was even happier to see that game finally come to SHIELD, and have been incredibly impressed with how smoothly it plays. It's still crazy to me that this game is running on [basically] mobile hardware — we've come so far in the last few years.

Since this game is a must-have for SHIELD Android TV owners, we've teamed up with NVIDIA to give away 25 codes that will score you the game for free. Since this is a $30 title in the Play Store, that's a pretty killer savings.

This contest is now over.

The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future. Congratulations!

To get in the running, you only need to do one thing: leave a comment. Tell us why SHIELD is your favorite Android TV box, a favorite memory from the Metal Gear series, or something else related. Comments like "I need this" or "great giveaway" will immediately put you in the running for a free punch-in-the-throat, so unless you're into that, I'd prefer it if you just stick to the rules. They're easy enough, so don't be lazy.
