Are MGS Fans Pissed About An "Open World" In Ground Zeroes?

Fans can be awfully picky and when it comes to one of this industry's most legendary franchises, followers might take up arms against an "open world." (Culture, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

honestly, I always thought MGS could do open world type of gameplay, I mean I hated the loading screens going back and fourth in MGS3. The way I see it is that this will probably be done well enough in terms of the openness of the world. I expect to see some linearity in it, but I think honestly that this was a great move. Kojima is still behind it, so I have faith.

Yeah MGS has always been a bit open, though mainly linear.

I thought something very similar.

Take Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater(my first and personal favorite) for example.

In the jungle, as you aptly said, a bit open though mainly linear.

You go throughout the entire game basically going from door one to door two, knowing that on either side of the door/loading times that you are safe from enemies.

Now, you take out those loading times and replace them with a seamless world. Never getting a comfort zone.

That, to me, sounds like a perfect evolution for the series.

I don't like open world games but it's from Kojima so I can't help it! I'm thrilled to play the game!

Just exactly where did that question come from? I've only seen positive reaction to this being more open world but even that is just based on speculation... so where is this 'journalist' (bloke who prods at keys) getting the vibe for this question from?

How about: 'Do MGS fans give a shit about articles like this?'

After MGS3, I've always wanted an open world MGS game. I'm excited for this!

Boktai! Maybe the game was good but you had to play it out in the Sun.The problem with that is in Ireland we only see the Sun when we Google it.
