Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear, and the art of the fake-out

(Warning: Metal Gear series spoilers throughout.)

No game this generation has occupied my headspace quite like Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. I've spent many a late night poring over every trailer, gameplay video, and article I can find, obsessively scouring them for something - anything - that will reveal itself in some grand eureka moment. Something feels like it's missing, like we're not getting the full picture. Like The Phantom Pain is hiding a twist the likes of which we've never seen before. And as the swansong of master prankster Hideo Kojima, I would expect nothing less.

Now we'll have to see how much the Master Collection will add to those numbers.

Too bad it was a lazy release. They could've updated the visuals and everything. Missed opportunity.

Stanjara32d ago

...and yet, they couldn't give more respect and effort into the collection.
What a terrible company.

Minute Man 72132d ago (Edited 32d ago )

Are they counting every game?

Edit: they did

Nyxus32d ago

Yes, these are total lifetime sales of the entire series.

ApocalypseShadow32d ago

.... mostly with the help of PlayStation.

Get that Sony tramp stamp while you're at it. No one asked

Yea I don’t get why they’re allowing old reviews to be posted here. Someone did one on Soul Reaver and I got so excited thinking there was some stealth release of an HD Remaster, but no… it’s just someone who had a slow day posted an old review…

Cacabunga48d ago

I liked the game but for me it felt somehow like a military simulator rather than a proper MGS.. i got bored of that

micdagoat1948d ago

I do wish they would remaster all the soul reavers

micdagoat1948d ago

it was done this morning though

The author was in a coma for 9 years and didn't get to play the game when it released.

Chocoburger48d ago

This review arrived just in time for launch. Perfect timing!

Amazing how bad this game looks already. We keep acting like this gen doesn't feel like an update but I think we're starting to see it.

YourMommySpoils48d ago

Looks better than Starfield, Cyberpunk and most recent games out. Still fine.

RupeeHoarder48d ago

It most certainly does not lol.

andy8548d ago

Have you player Cyberpunk since the first day? It's absolutely stunning now

One of the worst games ever made. Absolute overhyped trash!

Snowb42047d ago

The gameplay was great. It was the tacked on open world and repetitive missions that messed the game up.

Shane Kim47d ago

The game started really strong in that hospital, but after a couple of hours I wondered if it was even an mgs game I was playing.

KyRo47d ago

The hospital section was the only bit that felt like a MGS game.

MGS4 was the ending for me. I totally ignore the fact 5 exists. It didn't need to exist tbh
