MGS3 is on of the greatest games of all time. This thread has hit me right in the heart.

Time for hype

The fight with The Boss is actually one of the reasons I hated the final battle with Liquid Ocelot. You go from an actual fight where CQC timing matters and stealth is absolutely necessary to..... something that doesnt' fit with the mechanics of the rest of the game at all. What the Hell?



It brought Eva cosplayers....

The fact you rank MGS4 at number one is the answer, you clearly have no idea what a good game is.


This ... not to mention with all his " Hey look how great U3 looks" threads but never one on game design...pretty muchs your priorities are in a game.

I double second this.



MGS3 was amazing, although I could see how it could suck if you take away all emotional and personal aspects from it. The bare bones game-play is still good, I don't know why you didn't like it. MGS2 for me was the best. MGS4 was terrible.

MGS2> MGS> MGS3> MGS4> MGS:PW> MGS:PO

Oh and also,
Going into this game, my expectations as a GAME when speaking mechanics and how fun it is (because I did know the story a tad like I said) were skyrocket high.

I had heard SOO much about Snake eater. I was like YEAH, Big Boss! Gonna be some insane showdown with The Boss, and my god, encountering Ocelot (Which was such a fag.. XD) would be insane! (I did like how Eva throws you the gun towards the end and you quickly fire over and over).


I was expecting some insane CQC action, perhaps even flashbacks to how The Boss and Big Boss became to be. Instead we were told about their relation in a similar way to Obi-wan and Anakin in Episode 2 & 3 which made their relation ultimately feel shallow. Yes it wasnt to THAT point and I could actually feel the characters. But if I may overexagarate, that's what I kinda' felt.

 

I guess I was expecting the game to blow me the fuck away and be the best game ever. Instead I was underwhelmed and feel like it was my least favourite MGS because the story was so important that I somehow had to grasp it in order to live with myself XD. This is probably the first time that Hype has hit me so hard.

I don't get this bit. You had a choice of discovering the backstory by

1. Reading about it in massive slabs of text and carefully researching the ridiculously convoluted world of Metal Gear or

2. Playing MGS3

You chose 1 first and followed it up with 2?

It sounds like you kinda ruined the game for yourself.

Anyway, MGS3 was probably the most emotional game I've played. I think it really signifies a point where the story really started to mature as we were finally discovering the motivations of major characters. The gameplay was also a significant leap from 1&2 adding in extra elements such as the camouflage that found its way into MGS4.

I read about it because I wanted to understand MGS4. Little did I know that I would fall dead inlove with the series and thus buy the rest of the games shortly afterwards. It came out of nowhere for me xP

MGS3 is my 2nd favourite MGS, just behind MGS1. I love almost everything about the game, the 60's setting, the immersive jungle, great gameplay, very cinematic, amazing boss battles. It's just such a brilliant game, can't wait for the HD collection.



Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence >>>> MGs3Snake Eater
MGS 3 Subsistence is the best game of all time. the ending is the most emotional ending for all time and the gameplay, the szenario, the caracters....are amazing!



the best RPG's are coming 2013 !!!! oh my god, this is perfect for RPG-GAMER = ) Ni No Kuni - 25 january, Time and Eternity, tales of xillia (PS3) and the maybe best game ever: metal gear solid ground zero


What blows my mind is that you complain about MGS3's cutsense but MGS4 is your favorite in the story. I still can't rap my head around it...
