What went oh so wrong?
-Complete lack of a traditional MGS narrative (the intro chapter was cool as hell though)-Big Bossu barely spoke / didn't act like a human being-Fun, tactical gameplay, but the world felt stale and the missions got repetitive fast.
>>462297843Fuck Konami and the backstabbers.
>repetitive missions>same 2 environments>decent mechanics, but level design is hit or miss
nothing. this is what it's like when you try making a mgs game fun for once.
>>462298261HAHA #FUCKKONAMI AMIRITEFUCK EM FOR MAKING A METAL GEAR BETTER THAN V AFTER KOJIMA LEFT
Venom was a precious boi and didn't deserved any of it
What a load of bullshit.
>>462297843literally everything except the soundtrack
>>462299754The one that never plays?
>>462298261Kojima completely shit the bed as company VP and V would be just as terrible if they gave him all the time and money in the world. Every MGS game after 3 is shit, except Rising, which is pretty good
>>462297843Unironically the absence of David Hayter.
>>462297843it would be 100x better if the game was linear like mgs1 and had indoor areas a la shadow moses island. It was too ambitious without a focus
>>462299856>one ideas man costing $300,000,000 per year in profitsfuk ken kek
>>462300479This. In my opinion stealth works best as a kind of puzzle game, with set environments and multiple ways of "solving" it. MGS1&2 did this best. MGS3 was good but the open areas made it a bit less satisfying, but you felt so in control and the story was good enough that it was easy to overlook. MGS4 was a worm simulator but the presentation and feeling that it was the end of an era made most peoples' first playthrough still exhilarating. MGS5 was an aimless mess -- it was a toybox but nothing but an empty lot to play in. Sure, some people can still make their own fun -- and more power to them -- but players of the series have come to expect a curated, well crafted experience which MGS5 did not have. The absolute lack of a story or characterization meant the game had no means of covering up its shortcomings like MGS3&4 had.
reminder that agness kaku is incompetent
>90% of the cutscenes were shown in the trailers, and with better presentation than in the actual game>Story is fucking bland>Characters are mostly uninteresting. Only good character in the game is Kaz>Mute main character.>Tapes have practically no charm compared to Codec >Open world is too samey, too many outposts, too little tight bases with actual level design. Absolutely no in-doors sneaking. >Having to wait for upgrades. And the ridiculous material requirements for most of the high-level upgrades>Outright cut content they felt they needed to show you about instead of just not showing itI think those cover the biggest faults of the game. It didn't need to be so underwhelming, I think just about everything that they could fuck up, they did. The engine, the setting, the core gameplay, it's all solid, but they failed to build on top of it. It didn't help that Kojima was fucking around with Del Toro and his hollywood buddies when he should have been fucking focusing on MGS V.
>>462301845>I think just about everything that they could fuck up, they did. The engine, the setting, the core gameplay, it's all soliddo you know how to use words, or do you just scream hyperbolic bullshit everywhere you go like a screeching autist?
>>462301447Mark of the ninja is also linear, and has puzzle elements which is pretty kino. I think claustrophobic environments are almost necessary for stealth kino, otherwise you can just run away and come back later
>>462297843I liked it, I wish the boss fights were more traditional MGS ones and the game had a better conclusion though.
While I still have that Phantom Pain. At least we got some fun shit out of it. Playing those first 30 hours were precious and amazing. Hell, I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy it til the final cut scene and the credits rolled. It was only after that the pain kicked in. Then came the reports that we got half a game and that shit tons of content got cut. It would have been nice to get the full game, but maybe its for the best. We're finally getting a new story from Kojima after all these decades of him wanting to leave MGS alone.
i wish we could've at least have a level editor
>>462298095>Complete lack of a traditional MGS narrativeAnd that's a good thing. Kojima is a hack.
>>462302728what confuses me is that this would be a guaranteed profit, I don't mind not getting a remastered MGS 3, I'm just confused on why they wouldn't create something they literally can't lose out on.
>>462299754MGSV has a soundtrack?
>>462297843Didn't need to be open world.
>>462303042>Not going into battle on a chopper turret gunning down Soviets blasting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-FIMvSp01C8
>>462302728That webm needs more of the pachinko punchline. IMO it's still the funniest thing to ever happen in gaymen
>>462299856>kojima was VP to Konami in 2012How have I not heard of this until now? That seems like the worst decision that company has made ever. >>462303003Because you see, pachinko is also guaranteed profit with a lot lower of an investment cost.
>>462303280But surely with releasing both a typical remake and the Pachinko machine you get that sweet double dip in both overseas markets and in Japland?
>>462303210Licensed songs in video games do not count as a part of their OST.
>>462303216swap 2 and V and this list is actually right
>>462302807honestly i feel the same as youi enjoyed phantom pain, yeah it wasn't as high up there in my own personal opinion as the other MG games but MG games range from excellent to very fucking good to me.it was like getting a really good game and complaining that it wasn't better.what killed me on it was, the lack of replayability. those bonus missions felt like homework, and most simply were not fun.the game had some highs some lows but all in all it was a good game, taking off my nostalgia goggles i could even say it's problaly in the middle of the pack.the AFTERMATH of learning about the cut content and that the game was unfinished(it felt that way im not gonna lie) really made me feel bitter about it.now looking back at it and not playing it for months, i can say i fondly remember my time playing it. it was a good game, should have been better.
>>462297843Game was rushed.next question?
>>462303280>>462303550People repeat this meme so much that I feel like some take it seriously, so I just want to point out that Konami rakes in money via arcades, fitness centers/sports clubs, and Yugioh, not pachinko.
The mission where you had to escort the african kids was my favorite
>>462303216>MGS 4>shit tier>MG Ac!d, Portable Ops, and 2 shit tier>Survive mid tier>V top tierThis list is all over the place, christ.
>>462303851Their sports clubs especially because they go after corporate clients as well
>>462303851are gyms even a big thing in the land of the rising sun?
>>462297843it was intentional devastation; the final twist of the knife by Kojima into the heart of the MGS fanbase that betrayed him, and the funny thing is that they consider it a perfect game"TRAITOR!" - Kojima (MGS4 to the player)"betray your audience" - Kojimawhen will they learn...
>>462304098Yes, and Konami basically has a monopoly over them because they were one of the first to start and have loads of corporate clients, and now they own huge buildings where they can just toss in massive swimming pools and tennis courts and so on which other clubs don't have.
>>462298095I got red flags when you rescue miller and Venom saya "this isn't about the past bro"
It was literally TOO subtle, which the MGS fanbase is not used to at all, they're used to 5 hours of exposition per game about the events happeningThey expected a cutscene to specifically say >"KAZ IS THE TRAITOR OH MY GOODNESS IT WAS KAZ AND NOT HUEY"or>"WOW VENOM SNAKE MAY BE HALLUCINATING SOME OF THESE CUTSCENES JUST LIKE THE PAZ ONE"the story is unironically too smart for /v/. Gameplay was held back by last gen though
Who had the bright idea of Quiet's entire character design and the female skull snipers' character design? Who added the cut-scenes literally zooming into their breasts and ass while making the woosh sound effect? It was interesting in MGS3 where Eva was actually manipulating you and used her body to steal the film from you at the end, but in MGSV? Is the design team a bunch of 12 year old virgins?
>>462303280>How have I not heard of this until now? That seems like the worst decision that company has made ever.Kojima being the VP is the WHOLE backbone of "the ruse" when everyone thought Death Stranding was a fake game and that Kojima secretly never left Konami.It made so much sense at the time, god fucking damn it
>>462304975>this is what Kojimadrones believe
>>462305347>>462305362>>462305690https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HQdJrAJV2U>"WHAT ABOUT HIM?">Snake is behind the glass, he can't hear>"MILLER WAS IN CONTACT WITH CIPHER">Venom literally does not know this, why the fuck would they indoctrinate Venom to know that one of them is a traitor>Kaz waits until he's sedated as fuck to start the tape that Venom will actually listen to>tape is bright fucking red as soon as he starts it>emphasis on the tape AGAIN>Miller visibly fucking pissed at the end when Ocelot starts vouching for Emmerichhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDjtSvcvs4Q>a rumor, source unknown>that the attack nine years ago, was orchestrated by you yourself>that big boss sold out his comrades to hide from the world>THIS IS LITERALLY WHAT FUCKING HAPPENEDliteral brainlets, you genuinely wanted a codec conversation to say everything to you. Kojima finally stops doing the same shit over and over and you're literally too stupid to comprehend it. I'm not praising Kojima, I'm calling you a fucking retard.
Great game, at today's price point.. nobody should not have it.Yes its flawed, the hours you can sink into it, if you do side OPs and objectives make it feel repetitive sometimes..But overall it's still enjoyable and the grinding is nothing new to any of us.
>>462302728was this actually made in the FOX engine, or just cgi'ed to make it seem like it was made in the FOX engine?I've never been able to work that one out
>>462306186>>Venom literally does not know thisDid you miss "Cipher's will" tape and the cutscene in the helicopter after the first mission?
>>462306628"lmao sorry snake im not doing it anymore I swear :) dude revenge lmao"
>>462306186The story that was there in Chapter 1 was fucking great, I don't disagree. I feel like they missed the mark with Skullface though, particularly the jeep scene was very painful and could have been presented in a better way. Chapter 2 shits the bed as the climax is poorly executed and scenes come randomly with very little in the way of events leading up to it.
>>462304975>>462306186Kojimafags are truly delusional individuals
>tfw Frank Jaeger wasn't a body double for Big Boss, thus earning that FOX codename >tfw Quiet wasn't a transexual Chico who was so distraught after being forcefully made to rape Paz that he chose to "Be quiet" and bid farewell to his sausage >tfw no scene where we meet a cute little Sniper Wolf>tfw no scene where Outer Heaven is fully established years later and a young, rookie David Hayter (the ruse was real and he was just pretending to be upset) voiced Solid Snake.>tfw no reimagined Outer Heaven level from MG2 made into glorious 3D
>>462306186You're actually delusional
>>462308851That would have required the game to be good.Which was impossible.
>>462303216MGS Touch was literally just a rail shooter
>>462297843so you faggots are finally catching on that this wasn't a good MGS game? i've been making these points since day one. that makes me superior to you.
Ground Zeroes did everything right.
>>462302057I see no issue here.
>>462297843At least PW had decent boss fights. In terms of sneaking, the AI in PW was better suited too.
>>462305396Where is Caramel?
>>462310382I remember being so excited for MGSV after seeing all the trailers, and watching all those theory videos, /v/ threads and building the hype.Game gets released to 10/10 reviews filled with false info.I've never been so disappointed in a video game
>>462302728If they were making an MGS movie would Snake eater be the ideal place to start?
>>462311620It's already been made
>>462311620Probably, yeah. MGS3 seems to have the most "show, don't tell" moments in the series. Which translates much better for a movie. Every other MGS game is more focused on "Tell, don't show"
>>4622978434chan, among other sites, won't stop sucking Kojidick. MGS games suck, Kojima is a hack.
Open world.Really hard to fathom how ground zeroes was so good and phanton pain was so fucking bad with the literal same underlying gameplay/controlsLevel design is everything
>>462312982I didnt think phantom pain was THAT bad but I understand where you are coming from
>>462297843If this game was in a jungle setting like MGS3 was, then it would be improved greatly. That's my idea for starters. Desert brown is boring.
>>462298095The whiplash I felt between the levels of happiness I felt in the intro, and the deep valley of disappointment that slowly crept in when I started playing the core game, is a wider gulf than any game I've ever played before.
they created excellent gameplay but an awful playground
