“Fighting was the only thing… the only thing I was good at. But… at least I always fought for what I believed in.”

From: Metal Gear Solid series

Genre: Video Games

Who said it?: Gray Fox

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the incredibly popular PlayStation video game, Metal Gear Solid, which was created by Hideo Kojima. In the game, you take control of Solid Snake, a retired solider called back to action to stop a terrorist organization from stealing a mobile tank that’s able to launch a nuclear missile from any where in the world, the titular Metal Gear.

The quote is said near the end of the game. Solid Snake attempts to take down the new Metal Gear model, dubbed Metal Gear Rex. During the battle, a former ally named Gray Fox rescues him and sacrifices himself. Before dying himself, Gray Fox tells Solid Snake that he isn’t a tool for the government before delivering the quote.

Geek wisdom: Always stick to your convictions and beliefs. It may be hard to do so because the world is telling you what you know and what you can do goes contrary to your beliefs. But there is always a way to make things work out to your goals, not theirs.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
