Giant Bomb Awards Metal Gear Solid 4 Most Satisfying Sequel
Never heard of this type of award
heard of this site period!
Well deserved. The best game in 08 simply for most gamers who own the ______ console.
"reliable" seems to fit that blank
MGS 4 has to be the best game this year ( of topic) OHH and 2 more moths till souls will shatter...... YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHHHHHHHHH
If no one else is going to say it, I will. The BLACK console. That's what he was going to put. Don't be afraid, man. The white man is now the black man. Now, black people can't complain that the white man's always getting them down. They ARE the man.
MGS4 wasn't just a "sequel" it brought the delivered the true generation gaming experience! Not just graphics but everything! There wasn't even one part where I was like "I wish ___ was different" or "I wish ___ wasn't here"' PERFECTION!
Fully deserved IMO the only 360 title that gets remotely close to anticipated would have been gears 2, and that fell apart with glitches to the high hilt the game is terrible!
One thing that could have been a lot better is the AI. So it would not be considered perfect. The online was bad also so that would be another thing that could go into your blanks. @above coming from you, I would be surprised if you played that game.
I just LOVE when people knock down on a game's AI. Its funny because there's really no scale to judge an AI on. The only scales used to judge AI's are technical ones. Other than that, its purely subjective. There are many very easy ways to make an NPC harder to kill with little to no tweaks made to the AI in order to trick the player that the AI is smarter.
The story made little sense, and some of the cutscenes were way too long. Also, Act 3 sucked, aside from the motorcycle part, which was awesome. I definitely think it was an awesome game, one of the best games of the year, but it's not better than MGS3, and it's much worse in terms of story. Gears 2, however takes everything great about the first one and improves. As a sequel, Gears 2 really met my personal hype, which is what the point of the award is. I'm not saying it's better than MGS4, just an improvement from the previous installment in the series.
There is a scale for AI. From bad AI, to good AI, to amazing AI. AI should be close to human intelligence, correct? Now, if enemies go in a certain path all the time, well, then it isnt very good. Games where the AI automatically finds cover based on enemy placements and knows when it is being outmatched... is good AI. AI who gets better weapons when it comes across it, is good AI.
Resistance 2: 8.5 out of 10.Story is so-so,co-op is phenomenal,competitive multiplayer is great. Fallout 3: 8.5 out of 10.Story is great,graphics are fine,core gameplay is basically Oblivion in a new setting. Fable 2: 8.0 out of 10.Co-op and graphics are meh,music is beautiful,singleplayer is solid. Motorstorm 2: 9.0 out of 10.Graphics and gameplay are terrific,sense of speed is near perfect,multiplayer is an absolute blast. Grand Theft Auto 4: 8.0 out of 10.Graphics are amazing,story has memorable characters but is full of cliches,gameplay has its hits and misses,multiplayer is forgettable. Gears of War 2: 7.5 out of 10.Story is so-so,gameplay is solid,graphics are fantastic,multiplayer is laughable. Metal Gear Solid 4: 10 out of 10.Graphics,story,gameplay,con trols,audio-All are on a level of quality never witnessed before in a videogame.A masterpiece.
GoW2 = 7.5 despite the fact you said it has solid gameplay and amazing graphics (best graphics this gen)... And you call its multiplayer "laughable" lol... Yet you give a movie with gameplay elements a 10 despite having even more laughable online than GoW2, inferior story, inferior graphics and the most stupidest downtime in gameplay / movie watching this gen thanks to installs rofl... MGS4 = 7.5 cos it was a pretty good movie GoW2 = 10 cos theres actual gameplay and better replay value
Yup, you got it straight. MGS4=10 GEoW2=7.5 Honestly, I think Nathan was being generous giving GEoW2 a 7.5
Dont ever Become a Game Reviewer. For one thing. No game is EVER perfect. So dont give out 10's. GeOW2 multiplayer isnt that bad and you would know if you played it. The game easily deserves at least a A for the solid gameplay, great Campaign,Co-op, and Horde mode. The funny thing is, you say so many negative things about GTA4, yet give it a higher score than Gears 2. Take my advice Nathan, stick to being a fanboy. You are better at it.
Mmhhmm out of all the sequels i played this year MGS4 was the best. DMC4 was a letdown so was Soul Cali 4. GTA4 actually surpassed my expectations but i was expecting GTA4 to be a mediocre game. Just san andreas with new graphics. Even though the content in the game couldn't match up to San Andreas in sheer content and scope the story and characters blew my expectations away. Honestly it was doing the mafia jobs that killed that game for me. It drained all the momentum the game drove in during the entire game and the end of the game damn there ruined the entire experience. The journey was awesome for most of the game but the ending sullied the experience. MGS4 was more than i dreamed of. Story wise. Cutscenes were breath taking. But unfortunately the gameplay didn't quite live up to my lofty expectations. I was expecting something better than Snake eater and what i got was something more akin to a third person shooter. The stealth bits didn't come into play until Acts 3,4 and 5. And the boss fights weren't as memorable. Still it pulled off the most amazing moment in gaming history. At the end of act 5 (not to spoil it for others). Simply put, revolutionary moment.
Bigboss will be happy
MGS4, but I freakin' loved DMC4. The ending tells you nothing though. You can't even call it a cliffhanger. There are no trophies for it either, which pisses me off!
It should be awarded. Well deserved.
I was pretty hyped for this game. Infact I knew my hype would cause disappointment but when I finished this game, I was so mesmerized that I had to play it again to believe it that I just played one of the best game of the decade. It is simply awesome. There is no comparison to this game.
Lol wow MGS4 won so many awards
movies do win a lot of awards
most disappointing more like I bought a movie expecting a game... WTF!
when its still sitting on the shelf in the unopened wrapper oh maybe because the only thing the ps3 is good for is the blue ray player.. ? maybee when the ps3 gets a real controller ill check it out but just from my freinds reviews they said its weak cuz your waiting and hiding the whole time lol... just what everygamer wants to do .... haha no trophies i mean even Kameo has achievements rofl... Trophies for ps3= epic bite epic fail Achievements for 360 = innovative groundbreaking success The white man is new black man = one big pile of monkey butt poo rofl ... go back to halo 3 bro your freinds are waiting for you ...
So MGS4 sucks because YOU don't play it? Well i guess by your logic 360 sucks too then.Since i haven't even turned mine on in two and a half months. Trophies fail? Four different trophies based on four different type's of difficulty each adding their own amount to your "level bar" to make you rank up to the next level. Hmm..tough choice isn't it? An RPG style leveling system based on four different types of trohpies. Or random numbers.(A.K.A Achievements) Edit:lol a quick glance at your "bio" shows you don't even have a PSN ID. Or a 360 gamertag.Chances are this is just another 360 fanboy troll account.
SprayandPreycom "how can mgs4 be a masterpiece when its still sitting on the shelf in the unopened wrapper oh maybe because the only thing the ps3 is good for is the blue ray player.." Why do you even waste your money on games if you don't play it and since you never played the game what gives you the right to even say it sucks why because you spent the $60 for the game but not even open it gives you the right to make an opinion on the game. "maybee when the ps3 gets a real controller ill check it out" What r u like 10 was the xbox your first gaming system Sony has had the same style of controler since the PS1 and only now are fanboys complaining. "but just from my freinds reviews they said its weak cuz your waiting and hiding the whole time lol... just what everygamer wants to do"" Ahh there it is you judge a game by reviews and what friends say to spineless to try a game out for yourself, pity you have to be so shallow and follow behind everyone next time you want to make a comment about a game sucking try playing it first you may even tell your friend that there just as blind as you being this game is receiving more awards for best graphics and overall GOTY over Gears2 in which you have to Hide and wait in that game as well, Ironic isnt it.
