Imitation, Evolution, and Metal Gear Solid 5

USgamer: "Is the Metal Gear series throwing away its heritage and personality by latching onto concepts from more successful games? Or is it all part of Hideo Kojima's master plan?" (Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Comment from the article:

"MGS has always felt like it was blazing its own path with every iteration. MGS5 seems like its no different. Despite the obvious allusions to Assassin's Creed and maybe even Red Dead, MGS5 still looks like its a product from its creator rather than the design by committee creation you feel from other AAA titles."

Exactly. MGS is in a league of its own. I don't particularly understand what MGS takes from AC though. But I will admit that V looks a little like RDR (traveling-wise).

I felt it was a good read though I don't really get what metal gear is taking from assasins creed at all really. We don't see snake stabbing people from roofs or free running around cities. They both do their own thing IMO.

I'm thinking the same thing. Is it the jump he does onto the roof during the E3 trailer?

Anyway. I have literally watched that trailer multiple times a day since it was released. Kojima constantly makes my jaw drop at the amount of detail he puts into his trailers. Even the song "sins of the Father" is deeper than anything else on the video game market by it's self.

I can't wait to see the new trailers I'm sure he's working on. Better yet, to get my hands on the game it self. My two favorite franchises are GTA and MGS and every time GTA is close MGS isn't to far behind. San Andreas/ Snake eater
GTA IV / MGS 4
I'm hoping we get MGS V at a sooner date. Because I'm literally dying to play both games. I'm a very happy gamer right now.

Im sorry but MGS has always and will always stand on it's own. Kojima has a signiture style of game creation that no one else in the world has and to all the people saying that MGSV is copying Red Dead Redemption are ridiculous. Rockstar games does not own the rights to desert environments and horse riding. Im sick of people thinking so 1 dimensional about video games.

Only one game is allowed to have horses... apparently.

Assassin's Creed? That game came out in 2007 and had horses years before RDR!

MGS5 looks to be a stunner of a game. As much as the story line is, well...out there I do enjoy the action and scale of it.

I will definitely have this for the 360, or Xbox One is it's released for the next gen systems.

This is a definite PS4 buy ONLY!
Anything else will be a step below.
