Metal Gear Solid: Who Should Remake It?

IGN: "Kojima is down to have someone use the Fox Engine and remake his baby. What developer should do it?" (Metal Gear Solid, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

Naughty Dog for sure, they would take their time and make a great make. Kojima would trust them with his baby for sure since they have a great track record in making compelling titles.

Naughty Dog should make the next Syphon Filter, and not waste time and resources remaking an old game.

I cannot and will never understand why KP don't do it. They just need to create one room in the MGS 4 engine. Apart from that room where Snake enters Shadow Moses in MGS everything is allready done in MGS 4. Remake the cut scenes, use the old voice overs. Done.
Correct me if I am wrong.

I'd have to agree with this. Their talents would be squandered on the limited scope of another artists vision.

Who should remake MGS1? And 2 etc.?

Koji pro, or some other team within Konami preferably in the same building as Kojima productions.

As much as I love Naughty Dog, I prefer a Kojima productions making the game. I don't know if anyone has noticed, but there is a certain 'feel' to MGS games and it needs to be present in any remake's.

The GameCube remake and MGR were actually missing this 'feel' I am talking about. The very first gameplay trailer for MGR (when it was still being developed by Koji Pro), this 'feel' was present there as well.

I can't really explain what it is, but the MGS game's atmosphere is just spot on and I am afraid that no external studio can nail this type of 'feel/atmosphere'.

Btw, this doesn't mean I wouldn't welcome Naughty Dog remaking MGS. But I would prefer Kojima productions make it though, or another Konami studio in Tokyo.

I wouldn't want Silicon Knights (if they still exist), or Platinum games doing the MGS remake though.

@RumbleFish, unfortunately, you are wrong. Whilst a lot of Shadow Moses was remade, there are LOTS of areas that weren't. I can think of the basements where you meet the DARPA Chief, and fight Ocelot off the top of my head, you also have the Commander's Room (where you fight Psycho Mantis), along with the numerous rooms around that building.

There is still a lot of work to be done for this remake to even think about happening.

Mainman, couldn`t agree more.

I also think ND would rather work on Uncharted, Last of US sequel of some sort, or maybe a new IP. And use their own engine too.

I think the same applies for big studios like Rocksteady etc. So, i would imagine i would be a smaller, upcoming developer or a less "famous" studio of some sort.

I played through both MGS1 and FF7 not too long ago and they both are still the magical games i remember, so a little unsure if a remake is needed.

It would be fun to see them updated with better graphics and controls for fans and to get more new people into them :)

Naughty Dog. Naughty Dog can do stealth gameplay and better.
6DEAD6END6  +   879d ago
I don't think they will make stealth better but they would make the acting and cinematic compelling from a story stand point.
TongkatAli  +   879d ago
Going flat on your stomach and crawling then getting up or running then going to the position to crawl was always clucking and annoying.

Also attaching to walls is clunky to me in Metal Gear games and in Uncharted and Last Of Us attaching to walls is so smooth.

4A Games from their past work on the metro franchise.

I wouldn't mind seeing Arkane (the guys that made Dishonored) give it a shot. Won't happen, as they're under the Bethesda umbrella and thus wouldn't be able to do a Konami-published game, but the talent is there.

There are so few developers that can be trusted to do stealth right these days :(
sarshelyam  +   879d ago
Highmoon has covered the gamut of games and really hit the nail on the head of nostalgia with their Transformers Cybertron entries.

Avalanche Studios would be another prime contender for handling the property with care...though they're far more into the open-world fresh IP angle with titles like Just Cause and Mad Max!

I don't know, but those are my suggestions.

The original MGS is one the best VG of all time & one of my personal all time favorites also, I would love to see a remake from Naughty Dog as these guys r geniuses same with Hideo Kojima & I'm sure every1 agree that they r the most suited ppl to do this job, but in case they r not ND the studio who is going to make a modern HD remake with FOX engine then I hope it's some1 who have what it takes & some1 Hideo really approve & respect.
Maldread  +   879d ago
Agreed. MGS1 and FF7 are the best game`s ever for me.

The feeling of paying them is just a magical journey i can`t seem to find again i newer games, no matter how well they`re produced.

You had to make me pull out the best death scene of all time.
Maldread  +   873d ago
TongkatAli that is indeed a sad one. One from FF7 also comes to mind ;)
deadfrag  +   879d ago
Ubisoft Shangai studio its my choise since Silicon Knights is no more.If SK was still in the JOB i would like to be them since they made a great remake call Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes.But theres also another dev team that im sure would do a great job Sega YAKUZA dev Team,Binary domain is an underated game im pretty sure that with better tools that team can do wonders.
matrixman92  +   879d ago
