This 30-minute Metal Gear Solid 5 demo (and these 19 GIFs) turned me around on the game

Christopher: Maybe I had forgotten what I loved about Metal Gear Solid games. It's been seven years (!) since Metal Gear Solid 4 graced our PlayStation 3s and, regardless of your affection for the game at the time — and mine wasn't high — it hasn't aged well.

The story is too old to be commented.

I swear on me Mum if any of you bozos try to invade my base I will come down on you and your army like the hammer of Thor.

Well my copy is downloading on my X1 currently, hope this game turns out great.

Captain_Wormy1198d ago

Ah you're ok in my book since im getting my copy on ps4.

Challenge accepted. Just name your platform of choice. :)

I'm gonna be on ps4. You best pray I don't find your monkey ass freeloading off my hard work or you will feel my wrath.

If you're getting it on Xbox One, you're safe. I imagine there are a fair share of newcomers to metal gear solid there.

However, if you're brave enough to have a PS4 copy (and there's a much higher chance of that), I shall descend upon you and your closest brethren and turn your world into a blazing inferno brighter than Ragnarok ever could.

Agreed I never even considered getting MGS on my x1 it just doesn't feel right.

Captain_Wormy - we'll have to help each other out..

I remember them saying you could request help from a friend if your base is under attack.

I have to agree, after playing ground zeroes and watching the 30 min demo, this could be a goty contender for me.

Contender for sure, but as much as I love MGS, GOTY will go to Fallout 4. I see no other competition to such a massive game that looks like it could live up to the hype.

Todd worked on Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Skyrim. All were no-contest GOTY winners.

Hell if they just took Fallout 3, changed the graphics, story, animations and added in more followers and weapons like New Vegas, it'd be GOTY.

And it looks like they've gone ***king further than that so...

I cant see MGS5 winning.

MGS5 may well become one of the best games of all time, one of the most polished and diverse, and easily one of my favourite games of all time, but...mmm...

I don't think it has a hype or fanbase large enough to win.

These so-called "journalists" on IGN etc will go with whatever is shouted about the most.

I guess it really depends on what game genre you prefer. I don't like western RPGs that much, I prefer MG's deep story and characters. I didn't even like fallout 3!

mgszelda11198d ago

Fallout 4 will have more goty awards by far. Whatever, I love my MGS and the opinion of the masses will not sway that

vastolorde6661198d ago

I'll be on ps4....but if my friends make it happen might get it also on ps4....

EazyC1198d ago

MGS 4 has NOT aged badly, it's one of the best stealth games ever made (perhaps THE best). Wish the author elaborated on that point, would be curious to read their view.

Can't wait for this game...

Kingdomcome2471198d ago

I can't wait to see you back on the court. You're my all time favorite athlete. ;)

Kobe Bryant1193d ago

Thanks. Can't wait to get back out there! #Mamba
