“100% of the credit for the texture pack goes to u/tophergopher1 from Reddit and r/GameUpscale. This is a full game long play with no commentary. Split into two parts (disc 1 and disc 2 of the original game).”

Media Molecule’s upcoming create-your-own-worlds game, Dreams, might still be in beta, but players are making jaw-droppingly cool levels, a lot of which are based on existing games.

One Dreams player by the name of Bearly Regal has delivered a seriously impressive Metal Gear Solid level, which he’s calling Metal Gear Solid HD Remake.

Not only is the build insanely cool, but it’s even caught the eye of Metal Gear Solid‘s OG, Hideo Kojima.

Replying to a clip of the video on Twitter, Kojima gave the Dreams version of MGS a thumbs up, and it really can’t get any better than that level of approval.
