The ESRB rating summary for “Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” has been revealed, detailing the game’s blood, gore, intense violence, sexual violence and strong language.
Picture or It Didn't Happen.
Sooo....if you don't have a picture of the violence and sex, then it doesn't exist? I don't get what you mean. This is expected from a Metal Gear Game. There is always a bunch of violence, sexual themes, and sometimes language but not really. Then again, this is a new MGS game. He changes the minor stuff every time and it always works for me!
God people are so uptight. "WHAT HE MEANS IS", he was being sarcastic so he wants to see some new screenshots.
You are right, people ARE uptight... In my case, I was literally asking what he meant by his statement because I didn't get it. Hence the- "I don't get what you mean."
well it's some kind of meme FYI
Gotcha. I wasn't sure. I really just didn't get it. Didn't know it was a meme. Regardless, this game looks amazing and I can't wait to play it. There is one part in the trailer that shows off gameplay (before the searchlight scenes) where no matter how many freaking times I look at it, it looks so damn real to me. Looking forward to going through this one without alerts and kills just like the rest of them. A Metal Gear game without sexual themes, violence and a bit of gore is definitely expected. I think I would feel weird without them honestly.
@ZombieKiller Finally someone who sees it. I can't believe so many people flip out about sexual themes in Metal Gear when they've always been there to begin with. The violence has always been there but gore I'm not so sure. I mean, in other games (except for Rising) when someone gets squished or exploded they just go red with blood or something. Enemies can't lose limbs either (except Ocelot in MGS1.) In terms of graphic violence it's always been limited. Also, strong language is kind of a first as well. The only time I ever heard the word "fuck" in MGS was in 4 and it came out only once (was "fucking' actually but you get it.) I'm sure it's all going to be fine.
In one of the trailers, the semi naked sniper girl is having a gory scene where a bomb or something is getting taken out of her.
wrong.. that's someone else. S
Here is proof of GORE. It's RED BAND Trailer +18 http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I really hope we don't get a censored version of the game in NA. I want this game so badly!!!!! Can't wait!
We already know it wont considering this is the North american rating...
Goody, the three Gs. Graphic Violence, Gratuitous Sex and Gore. Sold.
Only one of your G's. It was actually: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Sexual Violence, Strong Language
In NA they will get the no-nudity version, and in Europe we will get the no-blood version ^^
there is no nudity if you read it the sexual violence is a girl about to get raped but they said nothing is even shown but you hear clothes ripping and someone struggling
He's making a reference to the usual game censorship we're getting these days. For example, what he said was exactly what happened with Beyond: Two Souls. We had nudity cut out from the NA version and Europe had violence cut out.
Sexual Violence means in Australia we'll get no version!
its already been rated MA15 for strong violence and themes
and in Australia we'll get the fluffy kittens and rainbows version
Sexual violence?... Dose he whip it out at some point and beat someone to death with it?
actually he pulls it out and i have a heart attack
Actually Darpa, he showed up and you had a heart attack....well Decoy Octo did, but that counts damnit!
WHILE you were on the can too!
Oh yeah i forgot ocelot and i were heavily into S&M and he tortured my sweet little ass to death
Sexual violence? Really? So what the game is going to have sexual assault and/or rape? Stay classy Hideo Kojima...
It sure sounds like it but it could be something else the ESRB flipped about and labeled sexual violence.
Classy? Have you ever pressed L1 during a cutscene in MGS3? Or even in 4 when he "accidently" drops his cigarette in front of Naomi Hunter? Dude the way he drops it is even a blatantly obvious approach for an old man to peek under a chicks skirt. I laugh every time I see that.
So if sexual assault or rape are involved in any way in any work of fiction it gets degraded for it? OK, that sure makes sense.
Depends on the story. The problem is that MGS games are generally so damn goofy that I can't imagine it fitting such a theme into the game appropriately at all. He'll probably have someone get sexually assaulted by a pop drinking monkey right before we find out that the monkey is the victim's half brother. Then Solid Liquid Cheesepuff Snake will break down in tears recounting his forgotten past life at mime college. Then we'll find out it was all fake.
even kojima knows that SEX SELLS he dropped the ball with MGS for me anyway
Sexual themes have always been in Kojima games since Snatcher (1988).
Its any chance for Pc Version guys???
Don't forget the child abuse. When you put a machine gun in a kids hands it's not PC. Saying that, I can't wait to play this game
I'd love a Metal Gear game with someone other than Kojima handling the writing and characters. What makes the series great is the graphics and gameplay. Kojima mistakes its popularity for people loving the plots and dialogue, which are almost invariably ridiculous, to the point of being almost funny. Seriously, the footage of the upcoming MGS have been amazing...right up until one of the characters opens his mouth. It detracts so much from these games. The feeling it gives me is akin to if I was watching a serious movie like Black Hawk Down, and a dancing clown with a seltzer bottle ran into the frame.
Summary: MGS has childish plots and horrible dialogue.
That's just like.. your opinion man.
Except that many people do love those plots and the characters whatever you guys say . And how many usually even pretend it ever was flawless storytelling or had perfect dialogue ? I even know a few that actually wouldnt care for mgs's at all , based solely on the gameplay and graphics , without the whole mythos , universe , obvious hommages , genre parodies , self parodies , and the plot . Hell those guys would probably feel better and right at home , gameplay wise in other stealth games like Splinter Cell , but dont care . They aint interested in those universes , and not everyone playing MGS do it out of some profound love for stealth games Either way , someone will handle MGS some day instead of Kojima , i believe he'll pick a perfect fit that might who knows even please you , but i aint in a hurry to see that .
dammit Kojima just take my money now. ALL OF IT!!!
metal gear has always been gory, when you slit someones throat on mgs4 it is way more graphic then most of the games out now, if it is even more explicit that will be great, but if you cant bare it im sure you can turn blood off like in some of the newer mgs games.
Wish BF4 had gore... when I shoot a human with an RPG or other explosive... I want the mist and chunks. And I want to be able to dismember somebody with a machete... in-game of course. Doesn't have to look overly realistic, just better than ragdolls flying around the map.
psycho (dont take offense its a joke)
Wait does that mean this game is out somewhat soon? Cause I'm sitting here assuming this game ain't out for like a year.
“Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” has an official release date of March 11th for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One." Does nobody on this site read the articles they're commenting on??
Sexual violence ? I'm all for sex i'm all for violence, the two mixed? Idk. I'm not gonna be seeing titties getting whipped and dicks getting stomped am i?
Shit on the wall incoming in 3..2..1.. Oops don't forget the plot twist for the re-release of the other half of the game. I honestly hope MGS5 is perfected to what good ol' Kojima-san had in-visioned and not some humble stick in the mud cash in, like so many other pie in yo'face play it safe games of last year. Longtime fans of the franchise including myself might not sit to well if this game fails to deliver what's expected of a Metal Gear game. Making something for the many besides just the usual is a heavy task indeed, I really hope MGS5 can live up to being my game of the year. A umm...lmao and what about Nintendo's port..oh well um lets not talk about that.
mgs5's red band trailer was shocking to me, because... mgs may be rated m, but it has kept it more or less pg-13 throughout the series, i was kind of surprised at the amount of gore. that said, for those who don't want those things, kojima is one for providing filters for these kinds of things, not sure but it's likely
First time new sexual violence O_o
Question I doubt about real blood and gore? I see if real shoot a bullet cut them head off, body blood of lot and leg off?
man I hate examiner.com for their video ads.
Raiden getting punched in the nutz, does that count as sexual violence?
