Metal Gear Solid is one of the games I would truly miss if I didn't buy the PS3.

Never got into MGS the level set up was to weird/retarded to me, and the gameplays alright but cheezzy. Lots of good ideas but has an equal amount of bad ideas. But lot of people like it so what do i know.

PS360PCROCKS6308d ago

nah this is a good game it's cool to play a role of a agent, because u have to act stealth by sneaking around and being quiet, breakin light bulbs, hiding bodies, truly genius, it puts thinking into a video game, kinda like tomb raider, where you only beat it by figuring out the puzzle, cause we all know it was easy getting past the jumps and bad guys

pRo loGic II6308d ago (Edited 6308d ago )

Yah, true, most see it that way. I don't like the mix of camera over the top crap ect. It's a little kiddy for my taste, i'll stick with Splinter Cell. I'm picking up Tomb Raider at the end of the month love the demo and they really changed the old fashioned PlayStation lack of analog-Lara on rails control. plus the camera is smart unlike MGS, just my taste.

OutLaw6308d ago

Well meverybody has their own preference. but I feel if it wasn't for this series. There wouldn't be stealth games.

Playing The Last of Us Part II is Much Better Now After Watching The Show

Has HBO's The Last of Us show changed fans' thoughts on Naughty Dog's sequel, The Last of Us Part II? Maybe.

"Has HBO's The Last of Us show changed fans' thoughts on Naughty Dog's sequel"

Nope, my thoughts have always been the same. It was a masterpiece when it launched, and it has remained that way ever since. The only real flaw of this game, was the pacing. After hitting Abby's section, it kind of dragged a bit early on. I still maintain that this game was better than the first in just about every way other than pacing.

InUrFoxHole2d ago

I disagree. Thought part 2's story was trash.

CoNn3rB2d ago

I didn't hate the story but I wasn't a fan of how it was told, the switch half way through from Ellie to Abby was a massive momentum killer for me. It's one of those games where it's great to reflect upon and think about the themes but in that moment it's almost like starting over again and that's just not satisfying.

Agreed, one of the best games ever made

How many story beats per gameplay hour(s) does it take to have a well paced story?

I hated it when I had to switch to Ellie in Part I, but then I started to like Ellie. The same thing happened to me when I had to switch from Ellie to Abby.

raWfodog2d ago

I also loved Part 2's story. Of course it was not popular with a whole lot of fans, but I enjoyed it as it shook up our expectations. Not many games look at the other side of a story in such a visceral way. The original game made every one fall in love with Joel and Ellie so it was easy to see why many hated the events in the sequel. But I thought it added more to the game world as it showed how 'The Last of Us' refers to more than our favorite dynamic duo.

The game tells the story better than the show imo

-Foxtrot2d ago

Yeah like the show literally rushes the entire first game in only 9 episodes…well actually 7 episodes as two of them are flashbacks. The fallback to this is that they changed so much to get to the end as quick as they can:

Tess for example. She’s fantastic in the games but the show does her no justice at all. The change to her death is just plain awful, there’s no emotion to it, even Joel in the show literally just runs off but in the games he hesitates until she screams to him to go. Then you have the silly tendril kiss compared to her taking on a small group of FEDRA soldiers knowing she’s going to be shot down but she does it to take as many of them down to let Joel get away.

The show was alright. But the acting was terrible. The choice of actors were also terrible, as they don't really look close to their counter parts.

Part 2 over stayed it welcome. With the big shock value and then following a group of teens seeking revenge for 25 hours, it got a tad boring towards the end.
Ellie was a good character in part 1, but in part 2, she wasn't inspiring at all along with her group of friends. It was the game world for me that made part 2 good. But I was so disheartened that they took away one of the better characters early on into the game, this was one of the sole reasons I disliked part 2.

I thought the show was much worse than the first game, to the point where it made me think "how much of this story did Bruce Straley think of?"

It must be the only explanation because whoever wrote TLOU 2 and the TV show (similar people, including Neil Druckmann) did not know how to properly build on/ adapt the premise of the first game.

Either Neil Druckmann, be he a writer or a consultant on the scripts, did not understand the first game, or he totally opposed what made it biting and relevant on purpose.
