>Metal Gear Solid 2
>Japanese video game with subtle anti-war messages as well as messages about the idea of expectations vs reality and a plot with very small hints to help the player piece things together, also has multiple ways of progression through non-lethal means
>The gaming community boos it for being nonsensical

>Spec Ops: The Line
>Western game with overt anti-war messages they beat over your head and try to make you feel bad for only giving you one way of progressing through the game by lethal means
>Receives massive praise for being so thought-provoking

Why is this allowed?
>>
>>322625145
But MGS2 has a higher Metacritic score than Spec Ops.
>>
Because the average perdon cant into subtlety

MGS is also a convoluted as fuck plot
>>
Spec Ops was a much better video game than MGS2. Suck it, weeb.
>>
I love MGS2 but that game, along with the rest of the series, is anything but subtle.
>>
>>322625289
I specifically said community, not critics.

Also,

How is it better? Gameplay? Story? Please explain how it is better.

>>322625461
The games pretty old anon. It's much more difficult to understand what MGS2's story really is unless you were around to actually see how it all played out when it was released.

are you fucking kidding me

I understand that the advertising never mentioned Silver the Hedgehog. Which I agree is a dick move and borders on false advertisement, but it did prove a point about latching on to fictional characters and the power fantasies they create for players.

>Implying anyone knew what the fuck was going on upon release of MGS2

Yeah it's overt now with a hundred plot analysis videos on YouTube, but at the time it was very complicated for the average person
