The Phantom Pain is possibly the best stealth open world game in existence, possibly the best action game in existence, and possibly the best looking game in existence.
I can agree with this but I'm fan so I'm not being equal or fair.
"Best stealth open world" Yeah I can't think of another game in that category "Best action game in existence" No "Best looking game in existence" Not even close, last gen game really "The Phantom Pain Is Hideo Kojima's Finest Work" That I can absolutely agree with.
I think MGS4 was better. Gameplay wasn't as repetitive, story was better, there was character developments and the voice acting was on top.
My lord, how have you not lost bubble for trolling and spewing negativity so much? I haven't seen a single decent comment in weeks. I understand YOU have an opinion but don't state it as a fact
It's his opinion, but he is right!
So I praise another game and it's still considered "negative"...stop jumping on the troll bandwagon man. Don't be a sheep. "state it as fact" Despite the fact I said...."I THINK" Lets just backtrack so we all understand how blind you are to my comment "...I THINK" Jesus
I am a ways into the game. It is a truly great title. Fantastic and engrossing. It will rob me of hundreds of hours and with those I will gladly part. I have always felt Big Boss to be the most tragic character in the series. But as regards Kojima's works, I am in agreement with Foxtrot. MGS4 truly crowned the series and laid down the biggest reveal in gaming. A massive reveal 20 years in the making that wasn't just a story expansion but directly affected the gamer turning everything they had believed upside down... And it was the end of so many great characters that had been with us for years.
@Summons How exactly is he stating his opinion as fact? Especially when he first starts his comment with, "I think MGS4 was better" I mean right there that establishes that everything after that statement would be his opinion and not fact.
Because MGS4 was better
Loved MGS4, especially Vamp. Got V but haven't really had time to sink my teeth into it. Got to clear my schedule!
It may be his finest gameplay work. It may also be his worst story work.
Agreed. This is what I said below. Its just a matter of what people find more important to them.
Not really, its a better story work than MGS2 or MGS4. In fact story wise its one of Kojimas most mature products, not just in tone but in quality too. No more soap opera exposition.
Soap opera expositions aren't inherently bad, unless you really despise theatrical performances.
@calvincrack Yeah I saw it, it doesn't fix much. It improves the bond of Eli and Psycho Mantis, and does a very cop out job at explaining why Big Boss is hated by Liquid. All the stuff that was supposed to be answered is all "behind the scenes" head cannon crap.
For me, even though its repetitive as hell, the gameplay is the best yet. Im fine with repetitive when I enjoy what Im repeating. The story and characters are no where near as epic as previous games so I understand if it doesnt hold up for longtime fans. All open world games suffer from needless padding and feel a bit aimless to me. Thats why I never say "linear" like its a negative, they are much more focused games. Open world can never have the same sort of pacing or direction as a linear game. Thats why we need both. Still, I burned through my first 100 hours of MGSV no problem and Im not stopping now, I'm only half way through the story missions. This is just my sort of gameplay style and Im loving it. You get to make your own stories in this. The play style is up to you. Thats the best thing about it.
Snake eater is Kojima's finest work. This is his weakest. I'm blaming Konami for not letting him finish.
Again I'll say the Story is not horrible. It's the difference in its presentation that is bothering people. Cutscenes are generally telling the story while the details are in the tapes. The tapes are meant to be played as your playing the game to allow simultaneous storytelling and gameplay. This is what I believe the intent was. To me the story is pretty good. I listened to the tapes though. Still Snake Eater is the best in the series to me.
Every Metal Gear title is rather different from the previous ones, intentionally so. There isn't a worst one or a best one. Only your least and most favorite.
I'm happy with how MGS5 turned out. After all the complaints on MGS4, I think Kojima tried too much to please the gamers with less cut scenes and open world. Yeah some content was taken out but it's still a great game and hours of fun. Still my GOTY.
I still believe mgs and mgs3 to be better simply because they were special to complete... The stories were great and you couldn't get enough. Mgsv has amazing game play but it takes a very long time and you have to do considerable grinding to achieve fulfillment
Where were the bosses? A staple of any numbered metal gear game. The series is famous for them and they were non-existent.
The gameplay in MGSV is amazing and a lot of people will agree on that. The problem i think was the story and some of the repetitive missions. After i beat this game i went back to play some the other missions and i just found it kind of boring. I had some fun going guns blazing on a couple of missions but after that i got bored. I just did not feel need or reason to go back and S-rank every mission. That's my opinion and feelings for the game. Amazing game play but story could of been better and the missions got to point where it felt more like a chore.
I agree its an amazing game but kojimas best. ? No chance iwould say review the game once completed thaen you will see its far from kojimas finest work.
i agree with c31647 after finished story and doing side op after side op it ll gets a bit boring . i know that there is all the Different ways to approach missions , but does any metal gear fan want to go in all guns blazing , I think not . I did all in all enjoy the game but to me it really feal the last half was just rushed out Probably's KONAMI'S fault but we all will never know
It's a great game but you just do missions which aren't really motivated by the story or characters, because you rarely see or hear anything interesting. Especially from the Boss, he is just staring and when you expect him to say something, it doesn't happen. This will never leave me as amazed as MGS or MGS 3. Still, there's a lot of that awesome gameplay in here. I mean I'm over 70 hours and I'm in chapter 2. So not really finished yet.
No, MGS1 and MGS3 are both better games than V.
"Hideo Kojima" plastered all over everything. That dude needs to get over himself.
Admittedly the ending at first was partially infuriating because of its immediate open endedness. But as i took some time to actually sit here and think it through i cant help but think of how brilliant it was.
