Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain Won’t be Sandbox Like GTA – Kojima

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain will be 200 times bigger than Ground Zeroes and feature a similar open world structure but on a larger scale than before. However, don’t expect to have all the freedom in the world to do whatever you want like, say, Grand Theft Auto.

It better not be. Tacked-in "Open world" may be the latest craze but not every game needs it.

I agree with this 100000%. It seems a lot of games these days are going open world when most of them don't even need to.

Some of the best games ever made were liner which is why I was quite suprised to see people complaining how liner The Order is looking.

I often forget what's happening with the story in some open world game because of the sheer amount of things to do in these worlds distracting me. I know I'm in minority but not everything need to be open world.

There are plenty of true 'sandbox' games, such as GTA V, that can give people their open-world fix. Some story-driven games need to keep the gamers focused in order to make sense of the plot. MGS is very story-heavy so I believe this is the right direction for it.

200 times bigger?? Bigger of what? 200 times of Rom size means many Gigabytes, 200 times bigger to finish means about 500 hours of gameplay.

I think theyre speaking map size here.

... than Ground Zeros? It says it in the description. I think he's obviously referring to the size of the play area.

Bigger than ground zeroes, did you even bother to read?
