Best PS3 Games of the Generation: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

This article contains spoilers

In 1998, Hideo Kojima and Konami released Metal Gear Solid, an Action-adventure, stealth game that started a legacy. Though not the first title in the Metal Gear franchise, Metal Gear Solid innovated not just only the Action-adventure genre but video games in general. Introducing fully voiced cinematic cutscenes rendered with the in-game engine. With its success with Metal Gear Solid Konami released its sequel and prequel Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater on the Playstation 2. (Konami, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3)

legendary imo.

Legendary, indeed. For me, it is the single best video game ever created. For me, it is the only game I can consider perfect from every single aspect, it is a true masterpiece unlike anything else.

A lot of people look at MGS4, or hell even Metal Gear as a whole, and they don't see a lot of replay value. For many, it is a series that you play once to get the great story, and that's it.

For me, and other serious hardcore fans, we take the time to see that there is actually a SHIT ton of extras in these games, yet they are somewhat hidden from plain sight, and that's one thing that makes them so great.

MGS4 is probably the most packed with things to do and find in the single player (RIP MGO :'( ) aside from Peace Walker, and the experience of trying to find every gun, every music, get every emblem, find secret areas etc..

Combined with the obviously wonderful story, graphics, characters, stealth and action. It's just too freaking amazing in every single way, and I have not a single complaint with this game, not even the unusually long cutscenes, I love that stuff.

The first time I used the Tenagashima and the Solar Gun, I was just so happy at how great they were.

I have so many memories with this game, and as AMAZING as Phantom Pain looks (I don't have the worries like others do about it being too casual), I don't think it will reach MGS4's perfection.

People are mad.
I agree with you though. It may, imo, not be the 'best game ever created' but for me it's the 2nd best game ever just after FFX.
I spent so many days and nights with this game. I loved the story. The gameplay. The graphics (huge blast back in 2008).
And a big kudos to Kj Prod. for implementing MGO which was my all time favorite multiplayer.
Words can't describe how much I miss MGO. And neither my love for MGS4.

My personal game of the generation.

MGS 4 is definitely my favorite game, ever. That is, perhaps, until MGSV comes out.
jonnyvito  +   486d ago
Yeah, favourite game ever until MGSV

My favorite game this gen.

These games control like trash.
Goog ol MGS4.

It's aged very well. Beat that game like 8 times which is currently the most Ive played any ps3 game. Resistance: FoM is second with 6. Too many good games coming out nowadays to warrant multiple playthroughs.

But I'd wager MGSV will get about 3.
