Here's why Kojima's latest is undeniably a masterpiece.
No game deserves a 10. No game is perfect. BTW, 10's are given out way to easily that most gamers don't find a rating 10 impressive any more. Yes, MGS5 is a GOTY contender along with a couple of other games, but Fallout 4 will most likely be GOTY.
A 10 doesn't mean a game is perfect, more means it's a masterpiece
10 is not suposed to mean perfect, it usually means it's a must play game despite whatever flaws it may have.
fermcr I agree with you man. 10's are not something that gamers actually expect from big games. that's why anything under a 9 is cinder a bad score I don't agree with you that no game is perfect theory. it's a personal preference, also a review is a single person's personal opinion. uncharted to me was perfect metal gears solid 3 was perfect the last of us was perfect yakuza 3 was perfect now i dont expect others to agree but for me personally they were perfect. but to your point about too many 10's I Agree with. gta 5 R* uncharted 4 ND mgs 5 kojima fallout 4 Bethesda Witcher 3 Cd project red there are blockbuster titles which people assume and want getting a 10. and I believe many times the person reviewing also buys into the hype it use to be that a 10 came along every once in a while but now yearly there are games that get 10.
That last part where he fulton the jeep into the helicopter...insane. Pretty good video explaining why the mechanics and why it got that score.
MGS5 doesnt need an explaination for why it gets a 10 we know it'll be a 10
10s and even 9s are given out too easily. There's very few 10s out there and I don't see 10 material here.
Clearly you're an inexperienced gamer if you can't see how a MGS game deserves a 10.
Not every MGS is a 10. The first for sure, that's objectively true, the quality was unmatched. The second is my favorite but I see its flaws. MGS5? Objectively trash as MGS. If it weren't called MGS it would be fine, solid 8. As it is, I can hardly bear to lay my eyes upon what the series has become. Enjoy it. I ain't telling anybody they can't. But I will call it out, this is not a 10 and to me will never be MGS, no more than DmC was Devil May Cry or Resident Evil 6 was Resident Evil or Final Fantasy XV is Final Fantasy. These games are nothing compared to their predecessors and I am not blinded by nostalgia. It's all just frankly much worse. Again, enjoy, but don't call out my gamer cred over this because as far as I am concerned, those blowing MGSV have theirs in question by me instead...
MGS4 was a Masterpiece with 10/10 scores! Now MGSVTPP is doing the exact same thing! Well deserved from one of the greatest gaming franchises in Gaming History!!! A review that finally gets why stealth can be great when executed to perfection=Masterpiece ^_^
Sure gonna miss MGS in this kind of quality for future titles.. Future MGS games will probably be watered down to heck!
It's GOTY 2015 no doubt, nothing else matters.
Nah it's going to be tough to decide this year with fallout 4, MGS and Witcher 3. Personally think The Witcher 3 is easily the best game so far this year just need to try out MGS and Fallout now see if they can match up.
Good list of contenders but I liked Bloodborne more than The Witcher 3. Both great though.
The witcher 3 is the best game I've played this year I agree. But we have yet to finish mgs and fallout 4. Bloodborne was great too.
Bloodborne is great but it's just another Dark Souls but much easier for me, they are great but they aren't GOTY games for me.
MGS has already won it. a 10 from IGN is insta-GOTY from every site. I doubt Fallout 4 could be a 10, maybe somewhere close, the game will be too buggy and the shooting mechanics look godawful to justify a 10. Bloodborne and The Witcher 3 don't have mass appeal... I really hope MGSV will be the first game to one up Bethesda for GOTY.
a 10 from IGN doesn't mean anything considering they hand out 10's for most big franchise games. And MGS isn't mass appeal anymore either really, if anything Fallout is bigger than both Witcher 3 and MGS now.
Boy Konami is going to hurt when nobody buys their next fake Metal Gear game after seeing the amazing sales and reception to this game. Can't wait to see that reaction.
Simply because it's a Kojima game.
The reviews claim the story is the least inclusive part but after re-watching all of the trailers, it's quite obvious that the story that is there is intense and beyond the scope of most games today. It deals with real pain and anger, and one man losing himself to it all. No, this game deserves an 11.
