I loved MGS4, but agree, it wasn't overly difficult. MGS3 was just...fantastic. It's flat out a series every gamer should play.

I think Hideo meant storywise.
I'm sure it wasn't about difficulty setting.
Venox2008  +   1447d ago
maybe :) still all of them are great.. I still wish that kojima released MGS: acid 1 & 2 on 3DS in a single cartridge, or separate.. better 2in1 :D

You do realize he's talking about the overall tone and design choices and not the difficulty right? Learn to keep your egos in check and read the article first...

"Discussing the ideas behind the sequence, Kojima told NowGamer: "First and foremost, MGS4 is a game that I created for hardcore MGS fans who have known and loved the series since MGS1. Therefore, I wanted players to recall their memories of playing MGS1 and to look back on how they matured together with the series.""

A lot has changed since MGS3 was lauched...I remember, like it was yesterday, when everybody bashed MGS3 when it was launched: "its boring, no memorable, the most disapoiting MGS ever...bla bla bla"...even the reviewers were harsh whith this game...
Suddendly, a year ago, MGS3 became the best and more difficult and "even better than MGS", and "MGS2 sucks", "MGS4 is Easy", etc, etc.....
I wonder: what changed in these years?
PS: MGS3 is my favourite MGS game, even I LOVED EVERY MGS games!
PS2:I'm a Metal Gear hardcore fan...because of this I'm writing this post

By saying it was for the hardcore fans he's not talking about difficulty.

Shadow Moses bit is genius - will Rising be that creative I wonder?
Reaper9937  +   1447d ago
MGS4 was a masterpiece.
HaHa_Ostrich  +   1447d ago
MGS4 is a masterpiece. ;)
WiIIiam  +   1447d ago
Despite its flaws, I think it's got more heart and soul than any other game this gen.
e-p-ayeaH  +   1447d ago
Probably The Last Guardian or FFVSXIII will top MGS4.

Returning to Shadow Moses in MGS4 was one of the best experiences I've had in 20+ years of gaming. Something only a fan of the original MGS can truly appreciate.

Coming in through the snow to "The Best is Yet To Come", flashbacks all over the facility showing how it has changed since MGS, culminating in a battle against Ocelot with you at the helm of Rex. It was perfect.

"Something only a fan of the original MGS can truly appreciate." So true.
admiralthrawn87  +   1447d ago
it was easy but man it was awesome.
blackstrr411  +   1447d ago
...Its not good. I can't do it... Something only a true fan would understand.

Its MGS1 the part ninja dies
Donnywho  +   1447d ago
That flashback was some amazing stuff and I loved the game but honestly it might be my least favorite in the series. MGS3 is just something that doesn't come along very often in life. Not trying to diss 4 it's just my 4th place out of 4 amazing games.
BlackTar187  +   1447d ago
worse then 2? 2 by far is the joke of the series.

Jdoki  +   1447d ago
Totally agree BlackTar187

I still wonder what the hell MGS2 was all about... And I don't mean the story. Just... why? It felt like a complete mess.
HaHa_Ostrich  +   1447d ago
Gentlemen, lets agree that MGS2 was the worst game of the series and deserves only a 9/10.
BlackTar187  +   1447d ago
lol OSTrich thats true. Yea part 2 was fun for what it was but in terms of MGS it just didn't hold the torch very well. But MGS3 came out and made everything right again.
Donnywho  +   1447d ago
I didn't say worse then. I didn't say anything bad about any of the games. I said least favorite out of the series...4th place out of 4 games that I love.
gypsygib  +   1447d ago
I wish a code for Trophies came with the HD collection.

Urbz7870  +   1447d ago
