    Man

    This was a hard choice, because I think it's like a four-way tie between 2, 3, Peace Walker and Revengeance. But I think 2 just barely edges them out because I love the insanity.

    No, no, the stupid horseshit is the glue that holds this whole thing together! The horseshit is the heart!

    Probably the anti backlash gear.

    But yeah metal is the way to go with them if you don't want them to wear out quickly. If they're finely tuned a metal one can last forever.

    No I don't.

    Aside from gameplay and design, Revengeance excels primarily in its worldbuilding and crazy senators. The actual narrative is completely forgettable, it's just a vehicle to chop dudes and watermelons

    I'll come back to Revengeance but not for the same reasons I play MGS2 every year

    I'm torn between 2 and 3 personally, but 2 has so many fond memories that it pulls into the lead. Also skateboarding.

    every single part of revengeance is incredible except for all those annoying parts where it gives you control over raiden

    this is an acceptable opinion if you are insinuating how he threw off outside control (i.e. the Patriots and the Player) in the ending of MGS2 what with literally throwing away the dogtag with the player-entered name and whatnot, and having him be playable again in Revengeance (as opposed to his NPChood in MGS4) kind of undermines that ever so slightly slightly

    that's the only way I could imagine this post to be right, though

    Revengeance is hella fun

    Revengeance is about stopping an organization of mercenaries because they've stolen the brains of orphans and plan to put them into a killer cyborg army after brainwashing them

    Honestly I really like all the metal gear games. Even the worst metal gear game, portable ops, is still a good game and worth playing.

    It's easily my favorite videogame series.'

    im bummed out about the new one

    I really like MGS

    why did he have to fuck it up by putting a girl who cant talk in a bikini then saying we'd all feel bad for not liking it later

    Quiet doesn't seem all that much worse than stuff that has been in other MGS games. The games usually have a couple bits like that, unfortunately.

    I'm curious as to what her entire character arc will be still.

    Usually they're not nearly that bad! If you look at the costumes for women in MGS, it has just slowly, slowly gone downhill. Now it's full on batshit crazy with kojima saying he did it so that girls will cosplay then changing his mind and saying its ALL BECAUSE OF PLOT and then having super long torture scenes with her in trailers

    I was thinking more things like the bikini girl posters in MGS2 or heck even the video you get of a bikini model posing in that one tunnel. I guess those are more easter eggs and not characters but it's always been there.

    Kojima has a thing about electrocuting women in sheer stockings, and then animating the effect on those stockings

    Which isn't to say that it is okay Quiet is in the game, just because older games had it in the past. I think she is still a shitty character design (but given how toxic the Japanese otaku industry is I doubt we will stop seeing designs like hers any time soon).

    I am saying that previous MGS games have still been good despite having such things in the game, which I think (hope?) will still be the case for Phantom Pain.

    In my head there's a tangible distance between bikini posters on a wall and a woman in a tiny bikini being tortured. For me one can be defended and the other can't and maybe Kojima should have some other people around him explaining that.

    sure, the other games have been good despite the fucked up shit. A poster of a bikini lady is nowhere NEAR on the level of this horse shit





    i refuse to give him my money for this and support his whacked up crap. It's not about it being good or bad, it's about not supporting a product that i feel is reprehensible.

    Quiet is super disgusting but I wanna see where the rest of the game goes

    There's a way they could possibly make it kind of okay but there's a 99% chance it'll be as gross as we all fear

    Worst case scenario I ignore all the repugnant story stuff and enjoy the probably amazing open-world stuff

    And I recognize it's a privileged thing to compartmentalize media and throw out the offensive parts and stick with the good parts

    But that's still my perspective on it

    It's a good fight!

    You just kind of have the option of ending it in like a minute if you know what your doing, which makes it kind of an odd one out for the boss fights in that game.

    I thought it was a fun fight, and since it came later and you basically kick his teeth in it was a great way to make you feel like you had gotten stronger in the game.

    And then Sam and Armstrong show up to tell you that you are still weak.

    No, that happens even if you do keep up with the franchise.

    Wait, can you not do transfarring between the ps3 and the vita for peace walker?

    I did it all the time with my psp, am I just overlooking something?

    Because man I'd really rather play peace walker on my vita than on my psp.

    I've never been good at aerials or jugglign in revengeance, so I had to S-rank Sundowner on Revengeance with my feet planted in the earth

    That was one of the hardest things in the game

    That video shows how you should do it if you're good at launching

    I've been trying to think really hard about what order I would rank the metal gear games in. I am really conflicted because am I ranking them based on how I felt the first time I played them? How I feel about them now? As individual games? As part of the whole series?

    Tentatively...

    PW > MGS1 > MGS2 > MGS3 > Revengeance > PO > GZ > MGS4 > MG/MG2
