5 Things We Want From Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Gary A Swaby of writes: While Hideo Kojima and his production team are busy working on Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain we have The Metal Gear Solid Legacy collection to look forward to. The legacy collection is ideal for those who either wish to experience Metal Gear Solid from its roots to its current state or those who are simply just huge fans of the series and wish to own it all in one collection.

Once you own the legacy collection, the only thing left is Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. We're still a long way away from owning the game, and we still don't even know all there is to know about it. As someone who holds the Metal Gear Solid series in high regard I decided to compile a list of some things I would like to see in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phatnom Pain. Be sure to leave a comment with some of your own suggestions.

Disappointed that portable ops isn't part of the collection. It plays a big role as a prologue to peace walker

Also, the majority of people did not hate MGO, people just hated konami ID, that was the biggest barrier from allowing you to play MGO. I personally had a blast playing MGO on mgs4.

Best mp experience this gen .

^ This. Loved MGO to death!

Definitely steep learning curve made it very rewarding for people who took the time to master the game, people who were looking for an easy time didn't find one not even in the johnny servers. They should bring it back just more refined

MGO is one of the best online MP games I've ever played. Yes Konami ID was a pain and dedicated servers would have helped as well but otherwise it was awesome.

@a_bro: THANK YOU! I don't know why Kojima (and the writer of this article) thinks that westerners hated MGO. We loved it. We don't need another COD-clone. It was just their crappy servers, it's ability to be easily hacked (and often WAS hacked) plus the Konami ID's which if forgotten, would lock your PS3 out of being able to play the game, forever (even if you tried on a different PSN i.d.) that ruined MGO.

Leave the "steep" learning curve alone! Making MGO more accessible is like making Dark Souls more accessible--old fans will hate it, and new fans will just find it too simple and common to most other games, making it easily forgettable.

What was your mgo name? Trying to find mgo buddies i lost contact with

SwiffEpics1981d ago

I'm glad you guys seemed to like MGO and I'm apologize if what I wrote about it doesn't fall in line with your own opinion. I'm just going off of the feedback I received myself. I'm not speaking for everybody, just the majority of people I spoke to.

I hated the fact they avoided PSN which P2P resulted in ridiculously long download times. It took HOURS to download it and I refused to update after that.

i want less anime dialogue and characters, give me that, and i'll be so content with this game, and from what i've seen it seems that they really aren't doing an anime feel, which is definitely a plus in my book

Release Metal Gear Online as a FTP with dedicated servers on both the PS4 and XBO a few months before The Phantom Pain releases. Keep it going with constant paid DLC and updates throughout the generation to keep players thinking about the series.

AND not shutdown after just 4 years.

This is not an attack on Xbox One fans.

But seriously, this needed to be a PS4 exclusive and it is not...

This and KH3! Whyyyyy is the world so cruel sometimes??

CrossingEden1981d ago

if metal gear can be put on a nintendo system then it can also be put on a microsoft system, grow up, seriously, grow up and stop whining because you can't say "haha, we have this game on our console, haha"

JunioRS1011981d ago

The MGS series was primarily popular on PS systems, that was my point.

"Grow up" ? I specifically said this was not an attack on Xbox One fans
