Have you played MGS4 yet Faxanadu? I was worried that there wouldnt be alot of gameplay (like MGS2) but there is a ton. Along with alot of cutscenes. Im on my second time through and skipping all the cutscenes, and im enjoying all the gameplay. You should check it out!

I might eventually. But only if someone can convince me that the story is NOT "Deep, thought provoking, epic and philosophical" because then I will either destroy the telly or the gaming machine.

 

Like I said, the Matrix 2 and 3 effect. I am sorry. I got burned badly.

Good lord, how gaming has fallen.

 

 

The story can be acceptable if you think of it as one giant joke. For example I took Otacon crying over Namoi on a computer screen as Hideo mocking his fans who would cry over characters in MGS4 Of course you'll still have to put up with overly long cutscenes and pointless dialog, but the game can be b-movie funny.

why is it that every big title released somehow has a glitch so gamespot gets more traffic?

The Matrix 2 and 3 didn't have philosophical depth. They pulled that franchise into the depth.


I'm pretty sure that was his point.



6 hours of gameplay is just a bare-faced lie I'm afraid. The game took me almost 24 hours (just like MGS3 as it happens) and only a third of that was cutscenes. Needless to say there is also excellent incentive to go through the game at least another three times.

And there is little attempt at any silly philosophy, this is just another fabrication. I wouldn't say the story is exactly down to earth, but it's nothing like MGS2, and it works very well.

Please lay the hate to rest, especially when you havn't even played the game.



It takes me 14 hours to finish it...

That's probably the best game on PS3 right now, but I'm feeling strange nowing that I've passed more time watching cutscenes than playing.

Superchunk, just curious, do you have a PS3? I've noticed you are fairly involved with Sony-related topics (quite negative usually, yet to see anything positive or constructive in any discussion). Just curious. I do agree games should have longer campaigns than I experienced with Uncharted and Gears of War, but MGS4 took me just shy of 20 on Solid Normal.
