1UP- While the gameplay styles feel worlds apart, the latest Call of Duty has plenty in common with Kojima Productions notorious stealth action series.
NO. Nothing legendary about cod accept it's Justin Bieber like popularity and sales. Kojima rules the old and the new school gamers. He is an O .G.
MGS is one of the greatest things gaming has ever created. CoD is like a little bread crumb, where MGS is a bakery. They can never, and WILL never be comparable because the difference is just too extreme to even joke about that.
Cod is like a cow farmer. And we are the cows.
COD is like the 1.99 fastfood menu, where MGS is like a 150 dollar plate dinner. COD is shit when you actually play it, Hype is what sells it, and that everyone else buys it so you might aswell. The game isnt good and to be honest is a poor FPS, massive lag online (1-1.5second host delay). Consoles this gen are all P2P gaming, a massive fail so devs dont need to invest in servers. BUT BF3 gives you the option, so I give props to DICE for doing that for their hardcore community. COD is for SHEEP, or new gen gamers (Children). Hardcore gamers have been getting fucked over since the dawn of this gen of gaming. All these HD remakes, lmao we cant outdo the old so we recharge 59.99 for the old. Gaming is at an all time low imo, its completely casual across the board these days, Socom, GRAW all of them turned into casual POS games. Fuck this gen, i'm so disappointed in my PS3/360. PS2 was the golden-age.
You're right. You can't compare Call of Duty to Metal Gears. Call of Duty is much more fun and addicting. It's a better GAME. Metal Gear has a better story so its more like a MOVIE.
COD is good if you have downs, and can keep doing the same boring shit. Deal with the lag, campers and other BS and their shitty map design with mw3, lol! If you think its good game design, I can tell you werent around during the PS2 era, KID! GTFO
Excuse me but what the f**k did i just read? Mediocre story, limited gameplay, outdated engine and over priced DLC are now comparable to Metal Gear Solid? If he at least compared it to CoD 4 that would somehow be acceptable. However, comparing it to Black Ops 2 based on a typical CoD trailer, you must be out of your mind. @GraveLord Please, you are in every CoD article defending it, like its the best thing out there. Just stop. CoD f***ing sucks, the story sucks, the characters are just general stereotype military jar heads; stop being Activision's little brain dead sheep.
@Gravelord are you kidding? I mean, are you serious or what? The MGS games may be heavy on cutscenes, but they are in no way slacking on gameplay. The gameplay in mgs is far deeper and richer than anything you will find in cod. The metal gear solid games are brilliant in gameplay as well as story, heck Peace Walker has huge amounts of gameplay, gameplay which is far more addicting than anything cod has to offer. Well whatever. You're entitled to your opinion, but I'm entitled to be shocked by it. ;)
metal gear and cod both have people shooting at each other, if thats all you need to america's metal gear then yep, its america's metal gear.... side note why can't metal gear be everyones? lets all share it cause its amazing
@ilikestuff You don't have to shoot, or should I say 'kill,' anybody to play Metal Gear Solid, other than non-human boss battles that is. You can finish a Metal Gear Solid game with zero body count if you have the skill and desire. That's ZERO, 0.00, none, zip, zilch, nada. That is one of the things that makes Metal Gear Solid, so...solid. You can stack kills like Rambo or you can be a ghost, with no one ever even seeing you during the whole game. Just talking about it brings back memories of MGS4. Man, that game was GREAT.
splinter cell held that regard?
CoD: Black Ops 2 will be a great game for NOOBS !
My response after reading this article https://encrypted-tbn0.goog... I appreciate Treyarch trying to breathe some new life into COD, but I doubt they will ever reach the standards of MGS
That was my response to just the title, I'm not even going to bother reading the article. What idiot thinks up this stuff?
i know right, this article is just asking for trouble!
When Treyarch spends 4 years developing a CoD, puts the amount of attention to little details like Mr. Kojima does and come up with a mind blowing story and memorable characters, that will be the day i respect Treyarch.
No Gaming person COD is not like cow, COD is like the fish Cod
Comparing MGS to CoD or the fact that 1UP is actually the site that wrote this article. So sad to see....RIP old (and good) 1UP - early 2000's edition
I think so, some of you people are damn ignorant. Cod isnt popular just because its cod, just look at modern warfare 3 and all the hate its getting from the community! I think that black ops 2 will be just a good if not better then most metal gear games
MGS games are the opposite of COD. Each one introduces brand new concepts that wholly alter the gameplay dynamic. And every one of them is more complex than any COD game.
Agreed... Metal Gear Solid is a masterpiece... CoD is not. It's as simple as that. 1up is actually comparing the similarity of settings of both games, but still... Metal Gear Solid is a MASTERPIECE. Therefore saying that Black Ops is America's MGS is equivalent to saying that BO is America's masterpiece which isn't true at all.
Comparing COD to Metal Gear is ridiculous. At least Kojima has style. He doesn't recycle the same crap over and over again.
this is just an insult to the whole gaming community
This question is what is wrong with gaming today. Kojima would put the New world order speech in a game while Activision will try to reinforce the Patriots system.
I thought I've seen the stupidest articles ever on N4G....this comes along. Comedy Gold there 1UP, Comedy Gold.
hahahha this article is a joke for even comparing metal gear to cod... sorry... i refuse to even read it.
Very well said sir. I could not have said it better myself.
While I've never been able to get into the MGS series or the Metal Gear franchise as a whole, I respect the quality of each of the games wholeheartedly and, as I do with Kingdoms of Amalur, another game I couldn't get into, I will defend MGS' name. Call of Duty is literally the gaming equivalent of a prostitute. A dirty, $0.50 whore that everyone knows about and most people bang. Do NOT compare MGS to this STD-infested whore that looks like Susan Boyle (before she fixed herself up). @GraveLord I swear, you come into every friggin' CoD article as far as the eye can see and rant about how fantastically fantastical it is. The game is buggy, mediocre trash for all of the casual rats, raccoon, etc. of the world to feast upon. So, continue to nomnomnom on the leftovers of former quality if you like. Personally, I'm going to go have a delicious course of Legend of Grimrock.
i just puked a little in my mouth. Never...ever compare the great metal gear to call of duty...EVER.
War has changed...... it's no longer about innovative gameplay, masterfully executed stealth mechanics, or a badass storyline....... it's a cash cow, set to repeat the same battles by proxy soldiers over and over again..... at the price of 60 dollars.......war has changed....
Comparing MGS with COD... are you out of your mind?
my god, i can't believe someone was even bold enough to make that comparison. thats like comparing viva pinata to shadow of the colossus see how stupid that sounds.
SOTC and Viva Pinata should have a baby. That game would be amazing.
Well not really. At least viva pinata and SOTC are both good.
WTF stupid comparison!
This ladies and gentlemen, is the worlds dumbest article.
Some people do feel this way whos right and whos wrong is subjective, I mean I know 4 or 5 people who ONLY play COD, and while I consistently shuve BF3& BFBC2 in their face they never bite.Being honest I never cared much for MGS myself but I respect the fallowing it has gathered. I guess we could say what MGS is to some of you, is what Half-Life is to me and I would feel utterly disgusted and sick. COD is COD nothing more you pick it up for the cheap amusement and to play with your friends I wouldn't list it with the greats, well only two cod game I would list with the greats COD2 & COD 4 but their the exception, Blops was good not great.
How did the degrees of the story go from 120 to 80?
People found away to unread this article out of necessity.
Without being a cod hater, I can still say the games are nothing alike.
Metal Gear Solid is America's Metal Gear Solid.
This was the response I came here to post. Word for word.
I used to like CoD but MGS is in a league that pwns anything Call of Duty.
The entire game is one giant cutscene
You obviously never played it.
Yup, you definitely never played any of the MGS games.
Not even in the same league.
When did Metal Gear become the only franchise associated with mech type warriors? Metal Gear and Black Ops are two totally different games that cater towards different crowds. BO2 is a first person shooter, while Metal Gear is a third person stealth game. Vastly different. I don't see why everything is compared to something else these days.
GraveLord + ChunkyLover53 = The Simpsons family !!? KILL IT , KILL IT WITH FIRE !!!!
-This is like Saying America's Sushi is Dead skunk off the side of the Road, (after a cold night). Metal Gear Players are Sophisticated and Cultured. Black Op Players are people who play video games when they're not watching Sports Center...
Get rid of the "Solid" and I would agree. After all, Metal Gear Rising is garbage so I can easily see a CoD game being America's Metal Gear Rising as they both equally suck.
I will be buying, playing and most likely enjoying metal gear rising so deal with it.
This coming from the guy who likes ng3......
Ahahaha, the irony man, the IRONY!
Kojima isn't involved with MGS Rising so it's not a proper MGS game, but I woulnd't dismiss the game yet because it is now being developed by Platinum Games. Ever since Platinum took over the project I've become interested in MGS Rising because they have a good reputation for making good games.
That title is ridiculous. These 2 games shouldnt even be in the same sentence. MGS is a freaking classic, story, gameplay, innovation, characters etc. Is this a joke?
Jose Otero is legit from 1up, but this article.. ugh.. gross, I'm going to take a shower... ^_^
This is kind of a interesting read, but comparing them is kinda..ehh yeah I suppose im following his train of thought, but its like comparing granny smith apples to red ones, yes they are both apples but diffrent people have a preference for each one. I will always love Metal Gea-Metal Gear Solid series, Snake and Big Boss will always be classic and both have alot of back story from games to literature. Black Ops while cool twist on the Milking of Call of Duty I believe has a chance of breaching out onto its own good story, with lasting characters, the story in blackops wasnt bad, had a good twist at the end, and I enjoyed the fact I wasnt soldier number 1 in unit so and so, with BlackOps II coming out at the end of the yeah im hoping it does well, and just breaks from Call of Duty line, and become its own cool series. (Sorry for the run on typing from a cellphone.) p.s Maybe this is a RANT but hating on the last few Call of Duty titles is just bad showmanship, if you don't like them don't play them. If your one of those people who diss on it and are tired of hearing shooters comparing it to other shooters, well lets be honest it deserves it credit, its addicting (if your into online FPS with friends.), all I suppose im saying its like when Quake and Unreal where the kings, people complained about them as well but now everybody looks at them fondly.
My reaction to that title.
metal gear is metal gear is a complete game without dlc....
Id lke mgs4 to have dlc. But to be fair, 4 months to unlock content on a disc is different from 4 years and fresh content.
I didn't like a Metal Gear game since Solid on PS1...
Really? Not even MGS 3? I could understand if you didnt like 2 and 4 so much..
There was a Metal Gear Solid 4 game? I only got to play the interactive movie. when did this game come out? i jest.
Nah, just couldn't get into them. It is weird that the article brings up games from seemingly 2 different genres. It would be more accurate to compare splinter cell, at least the older ones, to metal gear, not COD. At any rate, I am in the minority of core gamers who actually has fun playing COD with friends online.
MGS keeps getting better after each new release COD has gotten worse every year since World at war
Blops was better than mw2 and mw3.
not to me atleast mw2 was better gameplay wise i sold blop a week after buying it . mw2 i played till mw3 came out and that was worse again IMO
