CVG picks the 10 most memorable highlights of Kojima's stealth epic.
"And so, stealth suit popping and burning from Snake's body, you must hammer X to push him on. " lies, it was the triangle ;[ -anyways they should of added times like when Akiba took his mask off, the ghosts, when a car flies on top of you in slow motion (act 3), etc xD
Act 4 when you fight that guy , then after your fleeing down the long straight in the thing with the guns killing many of them bad robots with a minigun and it dont even lag !!!
To be honest I didn't like that fight! I was trying to play what was happening to my left and watch the awesomeness to my right! I got a friend to play that fight again just so I could watch Raiden vs Vamp.
....the whole game is memorable. Its great.
major spoilers in there, so those who havn't played it yet, back away
What sets it apart from emotional sequences in other games and even films is the way it engages you. In a sense, you quite literally feel Snakes pain and therefore it puts you much closer to the scene. Also the fact you can see the seemingly fruitless trails of Snake's friends and allies makes it all the more heart wrenching and gives you the determination to keep on fighting. It also almost seems that the points where Snake falls more occur at the time where the influx of lactic acid increases; I really do think it works this well. Hideo Kojima, for passing these types of experiences onto the world I can only salute you. *salutes*
I actually cried during that microwave scene. The tears was pouring down my cheeks as I mashed the triangle button couse I was sure that Snake was going to get KFC in there.
This section was really amazing because as you were frantically tapping triangle you started to think to yourself "My body just can't do this." and I'd say that's pretty meaningful considering Snake's condition.
What an awesome way to implement the traditional "torture" , tap the triangle button like a madman, sequence. Only this time, Snake purposely puts himself through it. One of t greatest (and most exhausting) game moments ever.
When i got to that part i was thinking "This really is one of the greatest of all time" to capture a moment like that. Also by the time he was crawling my finger was tired but i had to go on seeing Akiba get shot and the Mark 3 trying to cheer me on i had to do it. That and the final boss battle was one of the greatest moments in gaming as far as i'am concerned.
I know, Solid Snake took a load of crap to get that far... i didnt think he was gonna make it. I thought that's where the story would end! Because after all he's been through especially all those scenes before each act ended... he went through hell!
my top 3: 1.Microwave chamber 2.Snake vs Liquid Fight 3.Armless Raiden helping Snake
the 15 min install was amazing
just be glad it wasnt on the 360, because the xbox would RRoD after 10 ;)
Yeah thats what the "media" would tell ya, but when you don't own one you don't have room to talk ;)

i DO own a 360, sadly enough
my top ten favorite segments in this generation's best game are: 1. Act 1 2. Act 2 3. Act 4 4. Act 5 5. Act 3 6. the cutscenes subsequent to taking down Beauty and Beast (especially Laughing Octopus...*drool*) 7. the first Raiden vs. Vamp fight 8. Snake vs. Liquid 9. fighting with Rat Patrol in Act 1 10. Raiden stopping the battlecruiser at the end of Shadow Moses
How can you NOT pick the motorcycle chase scene from Act 3????
Yeah that motorcycle chase was epic. I loved the scene when snake got on the back of the bike with big mamma and she said "Call me EVA" I was like Damn it all makes sense now. MGS4 was just epic and memorable right through.
1. The MGS1 dream sequence. 2. Finally piloting a Metal Gear 3. Anytime you saw Big Boss during a flashback. 4. The never ending microwave corridor 5. The final cutscene and of course the final codec message
Just a masterpiece.MGS4 has more originality and vibrance than any other game this generation.Along with Mass Effect,these are true next generation games.
I STILL HAVENT PLAYED MASS EFFECT :(
Mass Effect was good. I really enjoyed it and one of my favorite games this gen but it doesnt touch MGS4. MGS4 is off the fukin chain. It has so many memorable moments. The end of act 3 is INSANE. Its just so huge and Epic and Liquid Snake comes off as the most vile villian ever created. They did SUCH A GOOD JOB on Ocelot in this game. MGS4 owned everything. Gears 2 got crushed before it even released. Trust. It won't be a MGS4. Not even close in quality.
You havent played Mass Effect?Go to Target or Gamestop and get yourself a copy right now if your consider yourself a 360 owner!
My favorite part is right now, watching myself sit in an oil drum for an hour for the tortoise emblem...j/k But really, it's gotta be the Rex/Ray fight.
HAHHAHA.. i loved that fight too! Hell, everything was being destroyed in that fight. I bit into Ray's neck... damn, that fight was epic... also, "Fox... Die.." then Liquid runs around laughing his ass off!
1.micro wave corridor 2.act 3 rail chase 3Big boss's true death every single time i thought he kicked the bucket 4.returning to shadow moses 5.raiden's sacrifice(supposedly) in act 4 when he screamed for rose 6.raiden to the rescue arm less in act 5 7.raiden reuniting with his ill legitimate son 8.During the end of the final bout with liquid and snake when ocelot regain his consciousness and said "your pretty good" 9.The Struggle that all the characters have every single one of them went through a struggle, from sunny trying to cook her eggs to Eva trying to protect big boss to Akiba trying to sinc up with his team without nano machines.All the characters every single one of them even the pmc/militia went through a struggle. 10.When snake gave up smoking...That out of anything showed me he wants to "live" the short remaining time he has left as a man and not as a solider. ahhhhh Its killing me not playing MGS4 again after that 2.40 came out Im waiting for konami to patch some trophies before I take the plunge and try to get "big boss emblem" ;_;
1 - Microwave! 2 - One of Eva's flashback with BB 3 - Ocelot's final words! "You are pretty good" 4 - BB saluting The Boss grave. 5 - Every act ending! 6 - "LIQUIIDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" and the boss fight itself 7 - BB's return 8 - Raiden's awesomeness 9 - Every mission briefing, Sunny making eggs 10 - Finding out who the Patriots are and questioning which side am I on
I hate MGS2 Raiden... but MGS4 Raiden somewhat redeemed himself in the fights... i mean, he literally cut off his own arm without hesitation just to stop an Arsenal Gear to protect Solid Snake then jab the his katana to stop his foot from slipping... i mean, damn! I was watching the thing like it was some chickflick and i was a little girl drooling at the drama... Kojima got to me!
all those things are trully epic but one of the things i liked was those the credits at the end. it was going through all the voices and cast then it Said voice of Big Boss... and then Big Boss came outta nowhere, I was like WTF.
1. Anytime Raiden was fighting. 2. Motorcycle Scene (Act 3) 3. Laughing Octopus Fight 4. End of Act 3 5. The awesome commercials at the beginning of the game. THE WHOLE GAME WAS EPIC!!! (This is my first MGS game)
