Hideo Kojima put the old PS1 version of Snake in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, but he would like to see more, as he revealed at Taipei Game Show during a media session.
Then you make it after MGSV and do not make it ANYTHING like that Twin Snakes.
fortunately he didnt make Twin Snakes and is not considered canon
I'd buy it. I'd play it. Hell, I could even work on it.
How is TTS not canon? The story is hasn't been altered... it's MGS.
No one wants to make it because no one but Kojima Productions could probably do it.
I want MGS1 remastered with current graphics, with the original audio (music and voice acting), cutscenes, etc. Just enhance everything without changing it. I'm sure that's what most fans of the original want. They don't want it to be different; they want it brought up to today's graphical standards. I question this 'open-world remake'. It would probably still be a great game, but fans would still be begging for a remaster of the original. If he wants an open-world remake, it should include the original remastered with it.
he approved Twin Snakes. if anything he'll try to top the craziness. plus, the flashbacks in MGS4 uses the Twin Snakes dub...
From what I hear, the original PS1 audio was recorded in a flat, rather than a recording studio so when it was remastered for Twin Snakes the traffic could be heard in the background which is why they had to re-record everything for Twin Snakes in the end
What was wrong with Twin Snakes? It was the first MGS I played and I thought it was widely accepted as a good "port."
I loved MGS on PSX and I loved Twin Snakes on GC. This thread is the first I've ever heard of people disliking it.
It would have been better if they hadn't ruined the audio. MGS is ultimately still better.
The game would have been fine if they left the audio alone and removed some code from the MGS 2 engine that was not needed in MGS.
Are you ok in the head? Twin snakes was MGS1 with better visuals... It's better than the original in every way..
It was terrible, redone cutscenes that added unnecessary hollywood crap, redone audio which was crap, flipping over missiles.... Any true MGS fan knows it was crap and it isn't even considered canon. The original was lightyears better.
MGS1 with the MGS2 engine. I thought it was fantastic and it stood as a game in its own right.
I liked Twin Snakes.
I would love to see a remake of MGS but only for textures and graphics. Putting an open world mechanic into the game would ruin it I feel
You don't think they could pull off a Shadow Moses in the same way they did Camp Omega? I think it would be fantastic.
Thats a good point, I think it could turn out awesome if done properly
I can see levels being more open, but open world to me implies more like you can go around and do anything at any time, while choosing when to go to the next story checkpoint. That's a fine game play mechanic for many games, although not my cup of tea overall, but with MG, I never got the sense that time was not an issue. The idea that the urgency to complete the mission to go off and perform random side quests doesn't seem that compelling for a MGS game. Snake himself is pretty narrowly focused on completing his mission, so the idea of it just doesn't fit his character. Granted, all MG games have those odd side things which don't fit in neatly with his character or story, but do a fine job of rounding out the universe, giving some comic relief, and provide some good character development....most of the time. I think Kojima could bring some interesting twist to the open world premise, and ultimately make it interesting though. I'd still play it either way.
Open world?! Hell no! MGS1 is PERFECT. The only thing he can do is update the graphics.
Some things just don't need to be remade. I'd love to see it with a whole new coat of paint, but I love the gameplay and story as is. He can go remake Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 though.
I think he means open world like Ground Zeroes where the entire base is accessible without loading, all the areas would be connected seamlessly, I'd be down for that.
Exactly which I'm totally down for. Some people never move out of the past...just look at those cats still rocking the 80's big hair band hair cuts. Some people just need to move forward with their lives and let others experience stuff the way they want to. An open world remake of MGS1 wouldn't hurt anyone plus it would introduce the newer generation of gamers to the brand and possibly have them wanting to go back and play the original.
Not everything needs to be remade as open world. Some things should just be left as it is. Open World is becoming more and more hated as a buzzword.
Yeah, MGS would be great in true next gen graphics, but I would leave the orignal art style, gameplay, camera effects, and overall style. I wouldn't turn it into a TPS title. Leave it how it was but overlay a visual upgrade ( Maybe how HALO Anny is)
Because developers simply know better than to mess with Koji's classics.
i hate to say it but......twin snakes?
Prefer the original.
I would love to see an open world Policenauts..........
as cool as that may sound, i think it may be unneccesary for that game unless he adds in a lot of filler content as well as unnecesary acrion. that game works fine as a visual novel. however, i do want kojima to create a new ip that has a similar theme to snatcher or policenaut. that + openworld would just be amazing
For policenaughts or Snatcher specifically I can see it like you do. I could definately see an open world game set in that universe or style though. It would be pretty cool actually. If it had the same characters then that'd be even better. So much potential there.
Why open world? Just gimme Twin Snakes HD.
Why doesnt he do that with metal gear 1&2, and leave solid alone. Those 2 were good games, but even old school fans like me likely wouldn't have a problem with significant changes. Considering the leap, one would have to assume a large departure from the original, so it could try some new things without alienating fans.
I don't necessarily want them to be open world, but I would like remakes of the original Metal Gear and it's official sequels. Metal Gear 1, Metal Gear 2, and Metal Gear Solid.
JustAddWater have already said that they want to remake MGS.
That's really cool, but industry doesn't work like that. Kojima prefers a full remake, over the copy-paste job and Konami must be sure this is going to pay up, so pro-activity plays a major role here. IMO the best way to receive their trust for the project is to make a demo on basically any technology of revamped Shadow Moses that will envision the remake. Knowing KojiPro the demo should contain: An awesome cinematic cutscene, a bit of gameplay showing how Shadow Moses was revolutionized by the open-world approach and respectful tease of few iconic characters. A month or two of work for a small team, yet, as we can see, there's nobody adequate to rise to the challenge. It is also worth to keep in mind that original Metal Gear was fully stealth game only because of hardware limitations, and sequels followed the same fate. If the first MGS would be done now, it would be pretty much Phantom Pain, open and big. I mean, fuck me, open world Alaska? How is that not going to be amazing? Throw in few Aleutian islands in addition to Shadow Moses and we're in a ride of our lives.
That sounds like a good match. From what I've seen, they did a great job with Oddworld New 'n' Tasty! That's what most people are looking for, enhanced graphics, no load screens, etc. The same great game, just up to today's standards.
Yep, New 'N' Tasty was awesome :)
Well, I'm glad MGS was on the PS1, because I hate open world games. They just make you stray too far from the objective at hand and ultimately I become bored and just stop playing.
Kojima-san please if you ever decide to make more MGS after Silent Hills, please do Metal Gear 1 + 2 remake ;O! It would be dream come true for many! MGS1 is good the way it is, but maybe share some more light to Outer Heaven Uprising and Zanzibar with high tech graphics, VA etc. Solid Snake vs Gray Fox and Big Boss = omg
If you want to remake MGS1, then go talk to Nintendo. I'm pretty sure they would love to get their hands on that gem.
Release MGSV first then think about this unneeded stuff
a remake of mgs1 would be pretty cool, but i think if the map is not the same as the original then many fans would be a little dissapointed especially after revisiting it in mgs4. that map is too iconic. i wouldnt mind them changing the mechanics of the game or the boss fights though. needs to be updated to give us more of a challenge. actually, a remake isnt necessary, i rather they remake mg1&2 instead.
Please don't do it. I dont like open world games. I cant play them.. Make it straight.
Only update the graphics and give an option for 3D camera and controls. The game itself should stay the same, no need for an open world
I loved how ground zeroes played. I lost interest in metal gear after sons of liberty. I would like if all of them were remade to be open world. Especially 3 & 4 since those were the ones I had a hard time enjoying in its current format.
It's funny how people downplay Twin Snakes as being unrealistic as all of the Metal Gear Solid games have supernatural elements to them. The Twin Snakes was a great game, as well as the entire Metal Gear Solid series. Just because it's popular to hate something, doesn't mean it's justified.
The biggest issue I had with Twin Snakes was the poor optimisation. It dropped frames like lead bricks and was not really an adequate use of the Gamecube hardware, Metroid Prime, Resident Evil 0, F-Zero and others proved the machine was highly competent. Twin snakes looked and ran so much worse then MGS2 on the weaker PS2. Perfect candidate though for a reduxing.
well fans was making a Remake of Metal gear but Konami step in and closed the project
It's been done enough. MGS is one of my all time favorites and I consider a cornerstone for the gaming industry. It practically wrote the book on cinematic storytelling in video games. That being said I would rather have the original Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 - Solid Snake redone in a new 3D engine and expanded upon. So many people haven't played those and it is low hanging fruit rip for the picking.
No more remakes, the Metal Gear universe needs to move forward after 5, no more going back to the past. i want a true follow up to Guns Of The Patriots.
MGS4 concluded solid snakes story.. There is no reason to go past that.
As much as I love MGS1, I want Kojima to remake the MG series first before anything else. If not please bring back project ender.
