An opinion piece about all things we can expect in new Hideo Kojima's game-characters, story details, context and more.
Nice homeage Zuperman. I play MGS games too much, lol. I understood the whole theory, though he had some details wrong, it is a viable conclusion. We shall see by the end of the week.
If I was a trophy whore I would be back on that MGS4 right bleepin now !
@INehalemEXI you should go back on MGS4! its trophy set is not one you easily you complete merely by finishing the game, you actually have to play the game in various way (well some trophies are inspired by the emblems) and yes you need all the emblems. currently sitting at 55% with 26 of all 34 trophies.
Why would you disagree with this?
I expect a new, lag-free MGO to come with it, or i'm gonna be p!ssed off
War has changed (again).
Another completely REDICULOUS storyline that gets beyond milked out. And not to mention the terrible voice acting. Also, not to mention the days worth of cutscenes that you maybe play for 5 minutes then you watch 1 hour of cutscenes.
An opinion piece? On N4G? I must be dreaming.
Whats wrong with opinion pieces? Some are not good and just flamebaiting, but things like this?
I expect Solid Snake to be in there...
Hopefully not Raiden
I seriously have no freaking clue why people hate on Raiden so much. I think he is an amazing character
Well, let's be honest; if MGS5 is half as good as 4 it will be the 2nd best game of all time.
Hey you never know, there is always a chance that it could surpass MGS3 as best game.
ahhh idk... you can think what you want, buuttttt MGS4. haha
Mgs 4 was pretty bad in my book. Mgs 3 totally destroyed mgs4 =p.
I would Have to disagree to a certain extent., although I believe there was more cutscenes then actual game time, the story and gameplay were fantastic. therefore MGS3 was better then 4 but did not "destroy it"
Agreed MGS3 destroys MGS4. MGS3 had more charismatic characters, better story, better boss battles and lasted more than 1 hour. It took me roughly 2.5 hours to get the Big Boss emblem and 30 minutes of those hours were spent hiding under the truck to defeat crying wolf. MGS3 also had more attention to detail and imo was overall a much better experience than MGS4. Even after 3 playthrougs you can discover new things on MGS3 that will blow you away. I do however believe that MGS4 gameplay was better but as a whole MGS3 is the better game and the best in the series.
MGS4 SP was the weakest of the 4 games.
MGS1- Was the best in the series which had top notch gameplay and story. I was not into this back in 1998(or other sp games) but finally seen the light in 2000
MGS2- Gameplay was still top notch but the story during the Raiden part was dumb. But in my book, gameplay>>>>>&a mp;g t;>story
MGS3- Overall good(story/cutscene still suck)but it didnt have that diverse gameplay segments that MGS1 and 2 had.
MGS4- Omar91, dont believe, its true. My 1st playthrough was clock about 16hrs. To me, 70% of that 16hrs was devoted to cutscenes and installing between chapters. I like the new gameplay mechanic but it was wasted in the SP. There really was no meanigful gameplay. I can go in detail of each of the 5 chapters if anybody wants.
MGO is my fav game this gen though.
No, mgs 4 had the best gameplay...but there was not enough of that gameplay. Mgo more than made up for that imo. Mgs 3 was best mgs. Fact. However its mechanics were outdated (like inability to walk while crouching, and its use of face buttons for aiming and shooting). Mgs 1 was next best Mgs 2 had worse story, but good gameplay. However, most people beat it in like 3 days so it was a huge bummer cuz it was short. Ps = I loved Peace Walker a lot, the campaign is like 40 hours and it has plenty of replay (some people get 100 hours) but its bosses were underwhelming and the game was kinda easy (except the tough bosses who were challenging but just not cool like mgs 1 & 3 bosses, the rest of game was easy once u unlock smoke grenades and silent sneaking suit). Also it introduced co-op, military management, rpg elements, and time attack/score attack modes (for replay value that was remeniscent of the VR mission's Time Attack modes in MGS 1). All of these helped to take the series into new heights. Even the co-op was good (which is a hinderance in many other games). Personally I think gameplay wise it was the best (my opinion). But even the worst mgs destroys most other games Dont judge if u havent played them all. Especially if you havent beaten them all. Also I love mgo too and hope mgo 3 comes with mgs 5 or i'll be mad as hell and only buy mgs 5 used out of spite so kojima gets no money/love from me.
True that. Imma be so mad if there isn't a new MGO with the next MGS. MGO2 was to young, to pure.
I've beaten every single one -except for Peace Walker- as soon as they were released. The order IMO: 1- MGS4 10/10 2- MGS1 10/10 3- MGS3 9.8/10 4- MGS2 9.6/10
I agree that peace walker was the best one. They're releasing an HD version of it tues. on PSN. It'll finally be cool to play that game with an analog to aim and not using face buttons to aim. LOL. That game is like an RPG tho in terms of how you steal the soldiers after you knock them out and use them to build your arsenal.
1000% Agreed. MGS4 SP indeed was the weakest imho, the gameplay was by default the best. He was asking MGS fans to some how think that less is better....LOL! The more gameplay features the better, period. Thats not a subjective thing, its either you get to crouch or you don't, but who in there right mind would say the one which you can't is some how better? LOL! MGS3 hands down the best in the series BY FAR! "didnt have that diverse gameplay segments that MGS1 and 2 had" I'm not sure if this young man played the game now, lol. It had WAY more then both games, from Eva riding the cycle and being chased by Metal Gear, to the race in the woods, to fighting Volgun, to fighting him in the Metal Gear etc. Its the best MGS hands down. MGS2 was still great imho, loved the story but not as much as i loved MGS3's story, doesn't really take anything away from MGS2 though, thats still a solid game (really no pun intended) MGS PW from what i hear is one of the best MGS games since MGS3...this is a great thing to hear from any fan.
Metal Gear isn't the game for you.
Lost or Chuck Testa?
good job on your sum up.
Very good points
It will be limited By the 360 FACT
Or it will be PS3 Exclusive ;)
Or? http://www.gametrailers.com... http://www.gamespot.com/new... http://www.pcgamer.com/2012... http://www.shacknews.com/ar... http://www.thesixthaxis.com... http://www.siliconera.com/2... http://www.theverge.com/gam...
Even though I prefer Xbox360 over PS3 .. I really don't want this to be multi-platform. MGS's always been PlayStation exclusive.
MGS4 was the only console exclusive MGS game for Sony all of the other one were on other systems.
@Moncole It's a mix bag. Metal Gear Solid was on PS1/PC Twin Snakes was a MGS Remake exclusive to GameCube MGS 2 Substance was ported to Xbox, but the original version was exclusive and so was MGS3 and it's director's cut. The HD remakes are now on both Xbox and PS3/Vita. MGS4 is a PS3 exclusive.
MGS5 will be a next-gen multiplat game running on the new Fox engine, when MS releases their new console I am sure it will have a larger storage medium than the current Xbox. That is the only reason MGS4 never made it to the 360 was the DVD format, they even made fun of the 360 using DVD in the game. Other than the DVD limitations the 360 could have run MGS4 with no problem.
MGS5 is PS3 EXCLUSIVE, ovaa 50gb of gameplay
For once you say something smart.
Ma vid ti njih. Došli i na N4G.:)
'Metal Gear Solid: Foxhound' Remakes of Metal Gear & Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. If not, a prequel running up to this, telling the story of Big Boss's return to the US to form Foxhound.
1st im a BIG fan but i hope kojima STOP this Prequel things,,, Peace walker story was horrible,MGS3 story was horrible again.. like mgs4 story was not good because too many bigboss and major zero and BIG MAMMA? The Best MGS was old MG, and MG2 and MGS2 for PS2...
