If you’re watching the Electronic Entertainment Expo tradeshow from home this week as I am, you probably feel like you’re missing a lot. Maybe not the crowds or the stress or the smells, but, you know — the other stuff, like going to booths, playing games, and a lot of waiting in line.

People queuing up for the Metal Gear Solid V presentation at the Konami booth get to see these amazing images depicting the history of the series. If you want a picture of every Metal Gear, all of Snake’s various incarnations, and the comparative map sizes of each entry in the franchise, these glorious images have you covered.

Above: Awww, look at how little the first game’s map was. And I still got lost. But the pertinent information is that all that area that is NOT the older games’ maps is The Phantom Pain’s play area.
