Glad to see the dust is settling with this one

Didn't take long

I honestly thought it would take another month or so myself.

Imalwaysright1006d ago (Edited 1006d ago )

Because the person that wrote this article speaks for everyone that played this game, right?

-Foxtrot1006d ago (Edited 1006d ago )

Urm...no, never said that

Just another article like this to join the others we are slowly seeing on sites such as this one.

You know like after Destiny came out or Final Fantasy 13.

The dust settles and the we get articles such as this one. Funnily enough it's usually with sites who gave the game a high score in the first place but never mention the faults they talk about in their actual review.

Imalwaysright1006d ago (Edited 1006d ago )

You don't have to say it, it's implied in what you wrote. The person that wrote this article is just stating his opinion. There is no settling of dust. As for the other articles just like this one, don't speak for everyone that played this game.

Also, comparing this game with FF13 and Destiny won't win you any arguments.

Edit: The dust settles and these kinds of articles are still just one person's opinion that some will agree with and some will disagree with. It's impossible to please everyone.

I don't know if this website gave MGS5 a positive review but was the person that reviewed it the same that wrote this article?

"Also, comparing this game with FF13 and Destiny won't win you any arguments"

Eh? I never compared the games I compared the situation.

Games announce - Hype - Reviews come out which ignore problems - Hype - Game is released - Hype - Articles point out flaws they didn't mention in review - Dust settles - Opinions flourish - Discussions take place - Some die hard fans find it hard to accept - Arguments happen - In the end you are left with a good game but something which failed to meet the hyped up expectations.

I would continue but what you've just said there is proof you're grasping at straws. I mean it was pretty obvious I wasn't comparing the games.

Come on man, don't be that guy

Imalwaysright1006d ago (Edited 1006d ago )

No matter how much you discuss the game the only thing your left with is your own opinion.

Your "situation" is caused by the games so I don't see how you're not comparing the games. I have yet to see someone say that MGS5 is actually a crappy game like I saw countless people say for FF13 and Destiny. That's why your situations (games) aren't comparable.

MysticStrummer1006d ago

"Come on man, don't be that guy"

…said that guy.

There are also articles talking about how great the game is, but this one agrees with you so the dust must be settling…

smh

@MysticStrummer

Did you not learn on the other article.

Stop trying to derail my comments and make it about your obvious "beef" with me. Even though you can't bring yourself to press the block button. It's getting sad man.

morganfell1006d ago

"Stop trying to derail my comments and make it about your obvious "beef" with me."

Foxtrot I like many of your remarks.

Generally, I really do.

But you have had a "beef" with this game since I saw your first posts on it.

And it isn't just one comment. It is relentless. We get it, you do not like it.

The game is done. It may get patched but the game won't really change. Why not spend time doing something positive such as commenting on a game you like or better yet playing one.

xHeavYx1006d ago

Some good points,like #10.
I also found weird how Snake won't say anything in some scenes, like after acquiring an important character and they are attacked. He's freaking silent.
Sutherland sucks too.

Oh man.

DO NOT READ THE ARTICLE UNLESS YOU'VE ALREADY FINISHED THE GAME. It just has a huge, huge spoiler in it.

Be kind to those who didn't play the game yet. You should submit these kind of articles with a [SPOILERS] warning at the headline.

meatnormous1006d ago

TOO LATE! I usally read comments first but didn't this time.

JamesBroski1006d ago

Too late for me as well... Stupid author. MAN I'm pissed.

agentxk1006d ago

Jesus guys, there's a warning in the first 2 paragraphs. It's literally the first thing you read

HammadTheBeast1006d ago

I take it you guys didn't play Peace Walker? This game is very similar to that one.

goldwyncq1006d ago

As for number 6, no not really. Unless you've scrutinized every trailer that came out before the game then yeah, in that case it would be obvious.

BABYBONES1006d ago

I disagree. I paid zero attention to any media prior to the release of the game and I guessed the spoiler in question 20 minutes into playing. I didn't even play Ground Zeroes until the day Phantom Pain came out, honestly. I had it "spoiled" for me a couple of days after release, reading comments here, and all I could think was "oh OK, I was right" and it wasn't a big deal to me.

It is what it is. Personally, I don't really see it as a reason for it being a "bad Metal Gear game" at all and I'm still loving it.

ANIALATOR1361006d ago

I'm actually glad to see these articles. Goodness knows why some outlets awarded it a complete 10/10. It's a 9 at best due to the gameplay but the story is weak and the ending was horrendous.

opoikl1006d ago (Edited 1006d ago )

As stated before the gameplay in this game is incredibly fine-tuned and balanced to the extreme, but storywise an open world game could never fill the shoes of earlier MGS games.

Kojima holding your hand at every turn was always going to provide a more thrilling and engaging adventure than running around freely across the map. Even the inclusion of a fleshed out second chapter and a hypothetical third one still wouldn't hold a candle to a condensed, linear story where every phrase and event is carefully scripted and choreographed to perfection.

I enjoyed the game a lot, but after 80 hours (which is a quite some time, I realise) I am done with the game in a way that I will never be done with the previous installments. And that's a shame, really.

Artemidorus1006d ago

It's got great gameplay and I enjoy building an army but it doesn't feel like an MGS game.

Would be nice to see more story based DLC but Konami and Kojima are no more so unlikely.

ginsunuva1006d ago

It's a good game. But a bad MGS game.

MysticStrummer1006d ago

I don't think there is such a thing as a bad MGS game, but for me MGS2 is still in last place. I just can't decide if this one is tied for first or tied for second on my personal list.
