While the critics obviously love the game, it also seems that Metal Gear Solid V might not have that memorable narrative all MGS installments have had.

Yes it is and tbh I never expected this game to have a good story anyways because the developers choose to focus on gameplay instead, which is a shame because all the previous MGS games had great and unique stories, It is a big let down for me since I am a huge MGS fan but I will buy it regarless only for the gamepay, MGS is the best stealth game out there and I don't want to miss out on Kojima's final game

You must be psychic to be able to know that without actually knowing the plot line at all.

How do you know he doesn't know the plot. The whole story was spoiled a couple of days ago. I have been avoiding spoilers and sadly I know about some of the main plot threads.

After all it is a VIDEOGAME so developers should've treated this title as is and not like a movie like mgs4 was. Should have better replay value now.

A video games developer chose gameplay as the main focus? What is this industry coming to? :p

There are many ways to tell stories through games without sacrificing gameplay, you just need to know what you're doing. You don't know what you're missing by being a philistine.

Who is the Philistine comment aimed at? Ive been a Metal Gear Solid fan for many years and dont mind a stronger focus on gameplay - mind you I enjoyed the gameplay of the other instalments anyway. If its a good game I'll play it, doesnt matter if some of the traditional elements were changed

I might be in the minority but I play the MGS games for the story. Will wait abit before getting this one.

Yes, obviously. Konima even stated he could alter the canon. Sounds horrible.

MGS 2, 3 and 4 were awful in story/cutscenes. MGS1 was the complete package imo..
