Re-Mastering Metal Gear Solid: A Wish List

The internet is a-buzz this week with rumors of a remastered Metal Gear Solid pack featuring the first three games of the series, currently in the works for the PlayStation 3. With this is mind, I decided to lay out what I would love to see from this re-mastery of a pack of masterful games. Some of these wishes may be outlandish while some are completely practical. (Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, PS3)

Trophies would be sooooo good! I personally thought Raiden wasn't such a bad thing in Sons of Liberty, especially since they made him so much more badass in mgs4, but it's an interesting idea to play SoL through Snake the whole time.
Snarkasaur  +   1771d ago
Yeah I would agree with that. Cyborg-ing him helped.

Trophies are not really needed, play the game for fun :P

Trophy support for MGS4 is long overdue, and they should just do it to show they care. But the biggest point you bring that would change my life (and many other gamers’) the most would be bringing Peace Walker to the collection being remastered. My PSP broke ages ago, and I will not rebuy it just for one game, as great as it probably is. It would be just that much more successful and renowned if more people got to experience it on their PS3.

Nice (mostly plausible) wishlist. :D

I'll even pay for the patch

I would too.

The lack of trophy support for MGS4 is another sign of the stubborness of the Japanese developpers. They simply refuse to listen to what western people want. I'm always amazed by that. No wonder we don't see any Japanese games as a GOTY contender anymore.

That isn't true. Countless Japanese games have tried to make their games more appealing to western audiences. All they received for their effort was lower sales totals and bad reviews. Listening to western gamers is bound to turn every game into an open world Call of Duty clone with big muscles and plasma cannons with free DLC for their pirated copy of the game.

Name them then! I'm sorry but for me, this generation, I see Japanese developpers are the guys stuck in the past: bad online modes, outdates controls (Resident Evil 5 for instance), etc. On top of that, they just don't listen or look at what the competition is doing. Just look at Final Fantasy or GT5 (not saying it is a bad game, but you have to admit that some of the choices made by PD just show they are stubborn and don't wan to adapt).

Let's just look at Sony's first party games: if it wasn't for the studios in Europe or North America, Sony would have a very weak line-up of exclusives.

All I will say if they do this is

I'm just excited that this series is getting an HD makeover. I really thought it would be sooner than this though.

I want MGO from Subsistence
Arnagrim  +   1771d ago
I love MGO so much.
I never played MGO1, but MGO2 from MGS4 is probably the only online game I've been able to play consistently for a few years. Unfortunately it also has the worst community I've seen in an online game and the glitchers and poor servers are beginning to kill it for me.

Oh here it comes, flame me folks "I didn't really enjoy MGS4 as much as I thought I would when I finally picked it up.":X

No really I mean I think it's terrible at this point :(.

I liked MGS2 and MGS1 and VR Missions but WTF is this crap?


Yeah the cutscenes were fun to watch I wish it was just a movie.....

Cutscene >>> sneak around >>> cutscene >>> shoot a guy >>> cutscene.

Kojima should just make movies.
dorron  +   1771d ago
Peace Walker in PS3, please!!!
Buffniceguy  +   1771d ago
To me Mgs4 is the best ps3 exclusive without trophies it is still the best.

If Kojima Productions is in charge of this, I think it's safe to say the first game will probably use the MGS4 engine. It is Playstation's first Metal Gear Solid game, and arguably the most loved game in the entire series.

And no, I'd never in a million years want to play the Gamecube version unless Kojima changed some of these scenes himself. I hated how much they changed Twin Snakes in comparison to the PSOne version.

This dude is an idiot. Metal gear for the game cube is not remaster its a remake, huge difference
SwampCroc  +   1771d ago
I'd say if they added Trophies... it would entice all the people that once played the game to pick it up and play it again.. which really doesn't happen I think that much in the overall scheme of things... usually the masses are right on to the next big thing...

either way MGS is MGS... it was fine the first time around and I'm sure it will be fine the next time around.
Chaos23  +   1771d ago
they should just add MGS4. and hitman thats ur take on the game. people hate it (MOST PEOPLE enjoy it)
Chaos23  +   1771d ago
MGS4 is the best ps3 exclusive right now. if ya ask most ppl ............. probbABLY THE BEST THIS GEN
j-blaze  +   1771d ago
a making of, or a documentary about the MGS series as a bonus would be great !
