Not a bad article

Imagine if they made Dark Souls for casuals?

The franchise would never be the same after that.

Yeah and we casuals still wouldn't want to play it!

MGS is unfortunately going that route.

Everything about MGSV screams 'westernization'.
Its not like the game is not popular enough.
And did you forget Kojima's talk about westernizing MGO?

Personally, the game still feels like good ol' MGS, but with better controls, to me...

I don't think they're trying to "broaden their audience" per say... I feel like it's more taking elements from Western games that can fundamentally improve their game... But, thats just me

That's what Capcom tried doing last gen and look at them now.
