Hideo Kojima remembers Metal Gear Solid 4

It was no longer surprising when MGS4 came and blew us away with how pretty it looked, given that all the previous games had done likewise, but apparently even that didn’t satisfy its perfectionist creator. “It sounds strange saying this now, but I feel we didn’t achieve all that I wanted to do with 4,” Kojima says. (Hideo Kojima, Kojima Productions, Metal Gear, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

How would any1 even forget the best game ever made?

Thats is your opinion and I respect it but I disagree with you. Its far from being the best game ever made. Its predecessors were a lot better especially MGS3.

This game was the whole reason I got a PS3 back then! Thanks to the MGS franchise, Goldeneye and Pokemon on the Gameboy color I became a hardcore gamer!

I think I was blown away first and foremost by how awful the writing was, long before the graphics had a chance to impress me.

Beat the game in two long marathon sessions back in '08. Just had to keep going, heh. Good times.

A classic.

I'm probably going to get blasted for saying this but I hated MGS4 & this comes from an MGS fan since the first one. Those overly long cutscenes, weak story & that awful mission where you had to tail that guy for what seemed like hours.

I will give credit to that scene on the river with ocelot where he forces his enemies to kill themselves, that was amazing.

That was an awesome scene, but going back to shadow moses topped any and everything. That part was just unbelievable.

Personally, the best game I ever played.

A unique experience, I can not thank Kojima enough.

It was truly an excellent way to end the solid saga .

Loved the game. Favorite game this gen followed by the uncharted trilogy.

Metal Gear Solid 4 was the only game I played in that series.
Eventually I need to pick up the Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection.
It sucks that Konami didn't come out with a patch for trophies in MGS4.
MetalProxy  +   1374d ago
I remember that game and plan on playing it again very soon when I finish playn through the MGS collection. I also remember tons of n4g articles saying it was going to be on the threesixty...

I need to play this game again when i have time. I just opened up the case and saw the thick manual with great art. All we get today are two-three pages of rubbish.

5 hours of gameplay
20 hours of cutscenes
Best ps3 movie EVER!!!

Oh HA! That was a joke right?

In fact your sarcasm is faulty here because it's true. It was the first Metal Gear I'd ever played and it is still one of the best games I've ever played. Long cut scenes doesn't make a game bad. It's telling that the only thing people can bring up negatively about this game is that it had long cut scenes. You can't talk about anything else because there is nothing else you can bring up, everything else was near perfect, and no other game this gen has achieved that.

That stupid argument is so god damn old. MGS games have always had great stories that were developed by the cut scenes. yea there are alot of them but that is what gives you necessary character development and plot development. The whole "who wants to play a game with tons of cutscenes" bullshit is stupid. It's like saying "yea The Lord of the Rings sucked because like only 30 minutes of it was fighting scenes and the rest was boring talking and traveling scenes."

Games brought many a tear to my face, from ages 8 through to 18.

Still brings tears to my face.

Just an outright classic.

MGS4 was the best movie in my life. I played that sucker 3 times in a row when I got it and would play it again.
byrnezy  +   1374d ago
MGS3 is still my outright favourite game of all time, but man MGS4 was a classic, can't wait for MGS HD Collection to be released in EU
