Don't Admit That!

Come read what LoveRetroGaming admits to that no gamer should ever admit to! (Final Fantasy XIII, Metal Gear, Microsoft, PS3, Sony, Xbox 360)

1. Same... Although, I just bought the MGS HD collection and will play that after I play the original on PS1.
2. Same... It really wasn't as bad as everyone thinks.
3. Same... although I recently bought an Xbox so I can appreciate both companies.
4. Same... although I have lost most of my interest in trophies as of late.

What's so bad about admitting these things.

Interesting read, but I don't think any of those are reasons to have any shame.

1. I loved MGS, Snake Eater, and adored MGS4 (the reason I bought my PS3). MGS2 was well-made and I liked a fair bit of it, but I didn't like Raiden's whining... he made up for it in 4 though.

2. I haven't played it but I know a lot of people who enjoyed it, so that doesn't really raise an eyebrow.

3. Both systems have great games and exclusive features. I have them both and play them both pretty much equally.

4. There's a good feeling of accomplishment from getting trophies and achievements, so I wouldn't fault anyone on wanting them... unless they're farming stuff like the Hannah Montana game. Now THERE'S something no one should admit to, even if it's right there for all your friends to see and laugh at.

Until last week the only metal gear I'd ever played was MGS4 (and a little of the original PSX MGS at a friend's house back in school) and I really couldn't see what all the fuss was about. I'd heard from people that you had to play through the entire series to really appreciate the fourth but I couldn't see how it'd be possible that anything would make me love a series with such cheesy cliched characters and such clunky controls.

I'm currently right at the end of MGS2 in the collection and haven't even played MGS3 or Peace walker yet and I'm... LOVING it. I don't even know why. The characters are just as cheesy if not cheesier than the characters in the fourth game and the controls are even worse, they're basically a bad nightmare mapped onto a controller but.... I don't know what it is, there's just a charm to it all.

I think it might be partly due to the stealth seeming more prominent and fast paced than it does in MGS4. Each room in MGS2 is something like a puzzle requiring a different approach whereas most of MGS4 seemed to consist of lying in grass camouflaged in big open areas, knowing I could probably just stand up and shoot my way through anyway. I'm expecting 3 to play more like 4 in this sense but I still think I'll have a greater appreciation for it even if I still wind up preferring the style of 2. Anyway, rant over. I'm just happy and surprised to finally be on board with the Metal gear thing.

I can relate to number three, I own a Wii, PC and PS3 yet I find you have to be careful with that kind of information on N4G. God forbid you try and be positive about any of those three.

1. I played the first MGS on the playstation.

2. I really hated that game.

3. I find it difficult to prefer companies over another. I'm more of a "everything" gamer.

4. I don't hate it nor love it. I enjoy earning trophies so i'm glad they exist but I wouldn't go out of my way to spend a significant amount of title collecting them.

These are just my views and I don't think there's anything wrong to admitting what the author said...However i'm not daft, the title "don't admit that!" was just to grab attention...and it worked! I read the article and enjoyed it, good read.
