MGS V: The Phantom Pain review: The Best Ending Hideo Kojima’s “Biggest Failure” Could Have Had | WP

WP: “It doesn’t feel like this is over,” Big Boss says at one point in the game, “and I’ll never be whole again.” This kind of tortured melodrama feels like the best possible ending for Kojima’s biggest failure. No matter how exciting, offensive, or incoherent some of his turns have been, there has always been something beautifully true to life in his willingness to try. SPOILERS AHEAD.

I'm pretty sure Konami had a big embargo with regards story details/unseen footage that extends well into next month. For shame, Washington Post.

Yeah, well that's like expecting stores to respect a street date...there will also be some idiot who can't respect anything.

Yea as soon as i was about to i just scrolled down caught a sniff but didnt let my self read to much.

I wouldn't say there are spoilers in the review. Only thing it talks about is an explanation of the plot to the game. And it also explains how Kojima uses an aspect of that plot to justify Quiet's apparent lack of clothing on the battlefield.

I would say it's safe to read. After all it's Kojima's Metal Gear World: you know there will be plenty of plot twists and character alliances that we hadn't expected!

"Kojima's biggest failure"

*Looks at metascore and reviews that actually have credibility and laughs*

Tiqila1119d ago

Kojima himself said that the Metal Gear series was "his biggest failure and his biggest success" or something similar.

That's why the title quotes the metal gear series (not specifically MGS 5) as Kojimas "biggest failure".

guyman1119d ago

Ah makes sense in that case.
