I liked MGS4 after I initially played it.

It isn't amazing, it also isn't terrible.

MGSV actually made me feel bad after completing it.

Playing MGS4 I wished there was more game and less cutscene but that entire ending sequence was powerful shit. It felt like a natural conclusion to the franchise. I still would rather pretend it is the real conclusion. It's the last non-handheld Metal Gear Solid game that got proper funding and actually was completed the way Kojima envisioned. That honor can't be taken away from it since he can't make MGS games anymore.

Just finished 4 myself, I thought it was pretty fucking on point.

I wish I could have played the game with a proper big boss outfit. I think he looked badass for a dying old man.
>>
>>322707027
Yeah, I love it.

MGS4 is the biggest disappointment of all time. V was a letdown but it didn't rape my brain like 4 did.
>>
I've always held MGS4 in very high regard. I was surprised to find that /v/ did not when I first came here.

V however is a mixed bag for me. It's almost incomparably different from the others, but I can't deny that it had me entertained for the better part of 100 hours.

I put MGS4 way above MGSV. MGS4 has a lot of metacommentary from Kojima about his team, his depression, and the fans. MGSV has hardly anything, despite trying to shove the Moby Dick symbolism in everything

Old Snake is basically Kojima.

Too tired and too old, but determined to finish what he started. Even if it kills him.
And he nearly kills himself so maybe that's his depression coming through
>>
>>322702661
The opposite for me. I would have been more disappointed with v but mgs4 killed any interest I had left in the mgs storyline. I was just looking for some decent stealth gameplay and v for the most part delivered.
>>
>>322711397
Loads of evidence comes from his blog at the time.

I forget what the link is.

But there are things like how the war between PMC and Militia represent Kojima's team and Konami, while Snake is on neither side and is focusing on his own objective.

My favorite one is the beginning of the Act 1 Briefing, where Campbell literally says "The Manhattan incident triggered a serious public backlash." The quote is not only talking about the Big Shell incident in the canon, but also the fans and their outrage over MGS2's ruse.
>>
>>322711018
The storyline was a big letdown and the stealth gameplay was very limited outside of chapter 1 and 2. Also outside of oldsnake every single character in the game was unlikable.
>>
>>322708139
Nothing in PoOps is important other than Big Boss acquiring the Philosophers' Legacy in order to fund his own PMC.

V not having a story at all is better than 4 having a story that takes a gigantic shit on 2 and 3.
>>
>>322712776

See, this would be an intelligent avenue to keep PO canon

But actually, by PW Snake and MSF are dirt poor operating out of a beachside shack.
They take the job in PW specifically because they have no money.

Aww another thread where babbies first political commentary went boom boom and now you're crying.

The series at its best was 9th grade pseudointellectual tripe. It never once had anything to say, never once provided a unique view. It never developed any characters and didn't even keep a coherent story arc across titles.

Face it, MGS was always a shit story. The gameplay and music made it work. If Kojima spent less time writing fart jokes and soda drinking monkeys he could have maybe given it more depth than a damp rag. But he didn't. 5 isn't a worse story than 1-4, he just didn't tell it with boring 6 hour cutscenes.

The boss fights versus Rex and Liquid Ocelot are perhaps the best in the series. They were incredible. And the ending message was perfect for the series.

MGS4 had serious problems that other games didn't. That said, it's still a better MGS game than V.

For me it's 3>2>PW=1=4>>>>>>>>V

Only correct order is

3 = 2 > 1 > 4 > PW = V

Peace walker and V were trash in their own ways.

Not liking B&B background, cuck Raiden, hatin Naomi, Otacon scores and getting heartbroken again, foolish Akiba, I mean its just boring that everybody are too edgy and badass like mgs1 and 3.

I've always found it baffling how many people hold the opinion of "Fuck MGS4, Snake should have killed himself at the end" as if that wouldn't have totally undermined the message the game was building up to. Like, they just wanted another super depressing, tearjerker ending like MGS3 had without actually understanding why it was important for the earliest point of the series to end tragically for pointless reasons.
MGS4 gave Snake the ending he deserved for being one of the only people in the series to actually understand the Boss' vision without twisting it to fit his own selfish logic and leaving his problems to the next generation. He earned the freedom to finally live the rest of his life, short as it was, on his own terms.
>>
>>322704893
>It felt like a natural conclusion to the franchise.
This is the exact reason Peace Walker and MGSV being mainline games left such a sour taste in my mouth.
They had absolutely no reason to exist and they brought nothing new to the series timeline beside weird, pointless retcons for a story that was already totally concluded.
MGS4 ends on a stinger that offers no sequel hooks at all and instead involved Snake kicking one of his most stubborn habits, for fuck's sake. Anything released after it should have just been "questionably canon spinoffs" like MGR.

This. I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry at what a shitfest 4 was. MGSV is pointless, boring, and meandering but 4 is legendary for it's awful writing.

Apologist are showing up because it's old enough for nostalgia to sink in.

Yeah, /v/ acting like MGS4 wasn't shit is like /tv/ pretending the star wars prequels weren't shit just to be contrarian and shit on TFA. Although TFA is also shit.

And how would that be? The story would have been fine if Kojima could have been given enough time to polish everything up. He always found a way up until now, the series was supposed to end after 2 (maybe even 1) and even at the cost of retcon you would finish the game with the feeling of satisfaction.

Up until V.

It's seriously not. Episode 1 is a kid's movie. MGSV Is an unfinished swan to the franchise.

>>322702661
it feels like a completed piece of work and the story gets a clear endpoint, but it's still dumb as shit

it's also great entertainment and I can't hate it for that, but the story suffered likely because it was without kojima's regular co-writer being involved
>>
>>322719964
It's not. Like, the prequels are poorly shot, poorly written, boring, tonally inconsistent, and just generally shitty. But at least they don't spend literally hours sitting on a plane listening to exposition, at least Jar Jar Binks wasn't constantly shitting himself, at least they didn't have a half hour post credits sequence, at least Lucas didn't feel the need to add unnecessary and nonsensical explanations to previously supernatural elemen- Ok, forget that last one.

Yes, that would have been a million times less retarded. They should have remained an enigma, like in MGS2. What does them being mgs3 support staff add to the story other than try to reteoactively make throwaway side characters more relevant? Its like saying Mei Ling and Peter Stillman had formed a secret pact for an all powerful shadow organization. So fucking stupid. Why can't Zero just be the commander of Big Boss in 3? That was all his character needed to be.

>>322720935
People always bitch and whine that MGS4 explained the supernatural elements away with nanomachines and I always wonder if these people actually paid even a second's attention to the game.
Vamp's healing was still a supernatural quirk, he just used nanomachines to pump it into overdrive. Ocelot had to replace his transplanted arm with a robot one specifically because Liquid was being too much of an unpredictable little shithead when he was possessing him for real. One of the bosses is literally just Psycho Mantis' ghost hiding inside a lady's head and going "I CAME BACK FUCKER LET ME CHECK YOUR SIXAXIS".
MGS4 was full of goofy supernatural fuckery.
>>
>>322721518

Ocelot replacing his arm but still being hypnotized into thinking he is Liquid is even shittier writing than being possessed by Liquid in the first place. Instead of rolling with it and giving us more Cam Clarke, they gave us more contrived nonsensical bullshit.

Sometimes I wonder if I was the only person who guessed that Big Boss's team was part of the Patriots before playing MGS4.

>>322721518
>Vamp's healing was still a supernatural quirk, he just used nanomachines to pump it into overdrive

The problem isn't a lack of supernatural elements, I mostly included that in my last post as a bit of a joke, the problem is the story is bogged down with unnecessary details that make no fucking sense. Like why did vamp's ability to pin your shadow have to be explained as fucking long range hypnosis?
>>
>>322722237
Wait did they seriously try to explain it that way? Wow.

In hindsight of course, its not surprising. Reminder that some of those COBRA members were affected by Code Talker parasites! Because thats a necessary story detail!
>>
>>322722194
Not really. It has clunkier movement, clunky item/weapon switching, clunkier cover system, can't shoot radios, etc. The only problem with 4's gameplay is that you have so good locations to use it.

Perhaps if they weren't so vocal about it then maybe the trailers' story content for V would have made it into the game. Can't believe it either that those who said 4 had too many cutscenes suddenly went "I want it back" in reviews I've seen of V.

Nigga I enjoyed MGS4 but when you got save points INBETWEEN CUTSCENES then you got a problem.

Nothing in MGS4 addresses MG1 and MG2. MGS4 addresses MGS3's Big Boss and the Fox crew; Zero, Paramedic, Sigint, Eva.

In fact I feel the MGS3 pandering is what brought the game down. The MGS2 stuff is saved for the last chapter, and in small bursts (Raiden calls, Rose cameo), same for the MGS1 stuff (Shadow Moses revisit in Act 4), meanwhile there's a dedicated chapter for Big Momma (Eva), Ocelot wants to form "Outer Haven" (copying Outer Heaven) from the first chapter already, and there's this obsession all over the game on "Big Boss" (his body, legacy, hopes and dreams, etc.).
>>
>>322725596
Next installment is but a dream, anon. It's the game's destiny to be hated so the fans will at last accept MGS4's true worth.

It's also a good representation of today's games. Big open world with nothing to do, big promises, little delivery and a lackluster story.

I gotta agree with this. I didn't hate playing V, but it doesn't really have what I want from a Metal Gear. No insane story nor crazy boss fights. And, while V is good mechanically, after a while, you begin to notice how nothing the actual game is. The maps are empty, stealth is easy, you spend too much damn time on the helicopter, and everything feels like it had no real level design.

MGS4 had it's fair share of problems, and until V I thought ill of it, but at least it felt like a Metal Gear.

Without Kojima it's less canon than Dragon Ball GT as far as I'm concerned.
>>
>>322725516
No, MGSV's general movement options were superior (and even then, they were full of lame modern casualizations and dropped classic mechanics for no reason).
The gameplay itself was fucking awful, it was 60% "EXTRACT/KILL THOSE DUDES," 30% "SNEAK INTO THAT GENERIC OUTPOST," and 10% "other," and outside of a few story missions, the level design was just extremely boring. Outside of being able to quickly jump to a section you might want to replay, adding a samey mission structure to the game's layout was terrible in Peace Walker, and it only got worse in TPP.

MGSV shouldn't have been open world. Or, it should have at least had more, smaller maps. The map in Ground Zeroes feels like a better size to me. All of the space in that map is used. It feels like it has actual level design.

For awhile I thought it was just gonna be multiple maps the size of GZ where you have one main mission and a few side ones. Man we didn't even get side missions as good as the ones in GZ either.

Kojima couldn't into open worlds.

He only found out once it was too late, like we all did, when our precious shekels were already removed.

In the end, most of the fun was in the marketing and the thrill coming up to release.

I felt sorry for snake in 4, they just used him.

If the meme's were taken out of the game ti would've been a lot better.

and lol @ people complaining about the cutscene, there was tons of gameplay just alot of cutscene, too.

Overall a 9 in my book, I enjoyed the additional upgrades to combat and aprpeciate they still kept iconic metal gear themes in there such as the weapon loadout and codec

Having two giant, empty maps instead of several hubs was stupid. They should each not have been much larger than GZ and main and secondary objectives should have been available at the same time. Think SC Chaos Theory but bigger in size.

If they absolutely had to have open maps filled with fuck all they should have had more fun with it. Just look at Quiet, there's a bunch of cool things you could have done with an open world sniper boss battle but that didn't happen.

Also, how much more complicated can it be to create a bunch of GZ sized-maps for a big budget team? What in the holy fuck was he even thinking?

What this fuck did MGSV have to do with "race?" Some people speculate that it actually refers to arms race, and chapter 2 is about triggering the nuclear disarmament event, but fuck if that ever happens. Skullface won I guess. Skullface was lame.

Because that sounds like something Kojima would have done before MGSV. I hope that part of him hasn't died. I hope MGSV was only bad because of the shit going down at Konami.

But it's true though. Some of the bosses in MGS4 are outright trash because of the analog stick's limitations, particularly the Raging Raven fight.

>>322732009
probably because they'd get in the way and didn't really make much sense
not that im defending it, in fact because of its sort of a ripped out feature with not much thought put into it, shit gets very weird and depressing when you do think about it. In fact a lot of things with the base become depressing when you examine what was shown and what we got
Animals were originally there, giving the base a better sense of it being alive. Gets ripped out, base is boring as hell
Zoo awkwardly shoehorned in, instantly built with a bit of story to cover it up and the entire forgotten in an instant
Talking to important NPC was originally supposed to be there. Never fully implemented so people disappear behind corners, you just awkwardly stare at them, or they're in completely unreachable areas and invisible if you're not viewing them from uptop in your heli.
FOB's originally never existed and it was your own MB being invaded. Tossed that idea out probably because people would get mad their best soldiers would die, instead you bizarrely create an exact replica of MB in another oceans

So many things changed right before it got shipped its not even funny

Yeah, he's not his flamboyant, crazy self at all. He only fires his revolver during a major cutscene like once, indoors. And sort of lazily half-spins it once. Did he take his medication or something?

MGS1 = New Hope. Exciting start to the franchise that changed the industry for ever.

MGS2 = Empire Strikes Back. Sequel that is better than the original

MGS3 = RotJ. Good conclusion to the trilogy that left most fans happy.

MGS4 = Phantom Menace. Overly complicated plot, cheesy and over choreographed, supernatural mystery explained with science (midiclorians/nanomachines). Overall left a sour taste in most fans mouths.

MGSPW = Clone Wars. Nothing important happens, un explained jumps in technology

MGSV = Revenge of the Sith. Best of the new trilogy, overall pretty good game, more less wraps up the story, but not quite as good as people hoped.

Pretty crazy how well it lines up.
>>
>>322736346
Brainwashing man. Seriously though I'm pretty sure it's Ocelot neutering himself around Venom. As soon as he's not hypnotised he's riding horses into fire, talking about how much he hates the French and the patriots and threatening to murder Kaz. Blah blah you're only playing phantom BB so you get Phantom Ocelot. Fuck you Kojima I wanted BB and brocelot shenanigans.

I bought PS3 couple of years ago to finally play MGS4 and really liked it apart from the B&B bosses aswell as some other stuff. Had some laughs and shed some tears in the end. I thought it was fine. But MGSV? I don't know man. It left me with such an odd feeling after finishing it. Shame it was what it was, since it didn't feel like MGS game at all and being the last of the games it affected me how I think of the series as whole.
>>
>>322738420
>MGS3 = RotJ. Good conclusion to the trilogy that left most fans happy.
Dude 3 is anything but a conclusion. Conclusion would mean it would be connected to 1 and 2. But since it jumped all the way to the past and is a prequel, its the Phantom Menace of MGS.
>>
>>322738903
MGS4 had its problems but it's still got those great moments like the final boss fight, and it wraps itself up completely. MGSV has nothing outstanding at all. I'll take the highs and lows of MGS4 over steadily the below average of MGSV.

4 is terrible because it's the most wheel-spinniest Metal Gear out of them all.

It's Metal Gear Solid for the sake of being Metal Gear Solid. It's fanservice, it's checking boxes. It's a follow up to a game that was never meant to have one. People can shit all they want on MGSV, but atleast that game had some balls to go fucking out there with the MGS formula. The game went out swinging, it went out provacative and polarizing, raising more questions than answering them, like MGS should.

MGS4 was just disappointing and hollow, it was exactly what people wanted out of Metal Gear, which is why it's so uninspired. MGSV is flawed and unfinished, but MGS4 will forever feel forced and soulless.

MGS4 remains the worst.

>People can shit all they want on MGSV, but atleast that game had some balls to go fucking out there with the MGS formula.
You mean 4 right?

MGSV has no porn mags, no boss fights, no characters, no MGS grade smart AI, no cutscenes, no proper codec, and the list goes on.
>>
MGS V would have been fine if the missions were like in GZ instead of some boring empty desert and forest.

4 was pretty much a fan service. The nano machine explanation was bullshit though.

MGS5 is an incomplete game but at least

>It's still a game

>>
>>322738420
I cannot believe there was ever anyone who believed MGS3 served as a conclusion to the series, let alone a satisfying one.
It almost entirely ignored every major question MGS2 brought up to tell a mostly self-contained story. Not to say it like that was a bad thing on MGS3's part, but MGS4 was absolutely a game that needed to exist to tie things up, even if Kojima was super butthurt about being too much of a perfectionist to let someone else direct it.
>>
>>322738903
MGS4 may have had an absurdly skewed cutscene to gameplay ratio, but man, the gameplay itself was absolutely jammed packed full of goofy, fun easter egg bullshit most people never even noticed.
Meanwhile, MGSV felt like they deliberately highlighted everything goofy and cool before the game even came out, and what was left over to find on your own was kind of lacking. I miss calling someone on the codec while doing something goofy just to see if they had unique dialogue for it most of all, the tapes just did not do it for me.
>>
>>322728313
I was hyped up by the prospect of the game finally returning to some fun sneaking mechanics after a "follow/protect the target" act and a "mostly abandoned retrend of a classic location with robotic enemies you can't use 90% of the game's mechanics on" act. If only we actually were allowed to sneak through the ship -- it was fucking HUGE, it could've been the second coming of the Tanker at least.
