"Hideo Kojima made everyone care about something brand new. He created a new IP with all new characters with a (kind of) new company and made a popular game that is a “game of the year” contender. Sure, not everyone is going to agree with the reception. Some believe it’s the greatest thing ever while others claim it’s hot garbage. I enjoyed it thoroughly – despite its issues with pacing and menu redundancy and clunkiness. However, given the high profile of the game, it’s easy to overlook how incredible its very existence is."
