The Citizen Kane of gaming.

>>8905542
More like the Archer of gaming. Or whatever other series overstayed its welcome.
>>
No, Citizen Kane was hated and shat on by audiences and critics alike when it came out, since it was a poorly disguised smear attack. It wasn't until the 50's when academics started praising it as a great movie, long after the people it targeted were dead.
MGS was wildly popular on release, and went on to be one of the best selling games on the console. You didn't see people hating it until around 2008 or so, when MGS4 came out and people started hating Kojima.

>RE4 saved the series from dying
No it didn't, in fact, it was part of the reason why the series almost died.
RE was doing just fine really. CV did well enough on the Dreamcast to warrant a Director's Cut style rerelease and its PS2 port did well. Biohazard Fire Zone was popular in arcades, the new movie was finishing production (and would go on to be a global hit), and in 2003 Outbreak would sell a million units despite being a spin-off that relied on online infrastructure which couldn't be used in Europe.
The issue was entirely with Shinji Mikami and his idea to make an exclusivity deal with Nintendo for his RE games. RE0 was always going to be a Nintendo exclusive, but it and REmake were a sign of things to come. RE0 was outperformed by Outbreak, REmake only did 300K more with 1.3 million. Then Capcom had to wait until 2005 for RE4 to come out, and Mikami had the gall to say he's kill himself if it got ported to PS2, and guess what? It fucking bombed, 1.6 million, and only when it got ported to PS2 did they make any money off of it.

Had Mikami not been so upset at Sony the franchise would've been doing just fine. Hell, I imagine RE would fared much better as an Xbox exclusive than a GCN exclusive, as every game, from ports of 2, 3, and CV, to the three brand new games, all failed.

No it isn't, it's a meme purpetuated by people who don't want to give any credit to Kojima.
Jeremy Blaustein is the guy who wrote the "Miserable little pile of secrets" exchange in SotN and actually got upset when people made fun of it, but because he's an egotist he acts like he was a genius of comedy in that moment and got upset when the PSP version of SotN did a far more faithful TL and didn't get made fun of as much.
As for his work on MGS1, it just shows he didn't really know what he was doing, he changed random shit purely because he didn't know certain things, and acts like he wrote all of MGS1. Does the same shit with Silent Hill, where he goes online and pretends he wrote the games.
He's also friends with Agness Kaku, the translator of MGS2, a woman who many suspect didn't even know Japanese when she translated the game and completely missed many lines in her translation.
>Kojima wrote: "You ghosts of our former government!" Agnes Kaku went with "Farewell".

ok REmake and 0 arent great but code veronica was fine and RE4 didnt really saved the franchise but kinda killed it only for the name to remain as resident evil games became a completely different things and the serie never recovered from it and only recently have we got 2 games that are survival horror (RE7 and RE2remake) and they went back to action right after.
>>
>>8905708
They are both good, and attempting to explain the plot threads left out at the end of mgs2 isn't bad nor does it take away "muh cliffhanger ending" that mgs2fags seem to love. Just don't play mgs4 if you want to jerk off in the corner about how smart you are for enjoying a half finished story.

I never understood why Kojima-haters latch on to Blaustein and Kaku as proof that "Kojima's a hack" or whatever. Regardless of how accurate or how much their work deviated from Kojima's Japanese script, they're ultimately derivatives of Kojima's work. At best, they probably snuck-in one or two lame jokes or wordplays if they were truly accurate, or at worst, it means you really can't blame some of the worst lines on Kojima alone. Not to mention they both had people like Scott Dolph and Satoshi Hirano overseeing their work to make sure they didn't deviate too much.

It's a moot point either way, cause Kojima was popular in Japan way before MGS1, where most of the people played his work without the filter of a translator (but I don't expect EOPs on 4chan to comprehend that).

Agness Kaku: "MGS2 has a garbage story and Kojima is not a true writer who wouldn't last a day in the TV writers meeting room!"
Also Agness Kaku: "ASHTUALLY! Everything good about MGS2 was becausse of ME! The Japanese was not as good. Trust me, you dumb EOP!"

Also, fuck Jeremy Blaustein for encouraging this stupid bitch too. No wonder he got ghosted after MGS1.

>RE was doing just fine really
no it didn't you zoomer retard
you were even born back then but REtrash and Zero/10 flopped on the Shitcube and Capcom didn't even bother porting them to the PS2 or PC like it did with their successful games such as RE4 (the demand for it was crazy), Okami, Killer 7 and Viewtiful Joe (P.N.03 is another garbage game that no one wanted it ported too)
classic RE was dying and Capcom tried to innovate it with new ideas lie, the multiplayer in Outbreak games or the third person camera in Dead Aim (zoomers like you think 4 was the first to do that)
4 as the perfect mix between survival horror and action adventure it was an atmospheric horror masterpiece and the pinnacle of video gaming and till this day it remains the most popular game in the series and regarded by many as the best game of all time
if 4 never happened then RE would die just like Dino Crisis and Capcom got lucky with their new goldmine Monster Hunter around that time so they were no longer relying on RE to keep them from going bankrupt
>>
>>8910170
>(the demand for it was crazy)
The demand for every RE game was crazy retard. RE4 sold about as much as REmake and it was only ported because Capcom didn't want Mikami to fucking ruin them. That's the reason you schizo.
>>
>>8907963
>RE2remake
7 is a walking simulator, and every hypocrite redditor faggot criticizing 4 for changing the formula of classic RE while praising bland and boring Outlast ripoff walking simulator RE7 that have nothing in common at all with classic RE deserves the rope
>RE2remake
you mean the action remake of 2? same as the above double faced redditor cunts will praise as a survival horror masterpiece while claiming 4 is not a horror game despite them having more in common than with the original 2
>>
>>8910172
>The demand for every RE game was crazy
no one begged for REtrash or Zero/10
>RE4 sold about as much as REmake
wrong nigger, it sold more despite coming on the end of the Shitcube life span while REtrash came at the peak of the console
>it was only ported because Capcom didn't want Mikami to fucking ruin them
LMAO the absolute state of REtrash contrarian
4 was the hottest thing on the gaming industry back then EVERYONE wanted to play it but it was stuck on the Shitcube, thankfully Capcom smelled the profit and ported it's successful game to a successful console while REtrash remained on the Shitcube
cope as you want but that's the truth, no one gives a fuck about REtrash
even if you go to Steam and see the remaster you'll notice only small percentage of people beat the game, they just bought it because of the brand name they thought it was a good game like 4 only to be disappointed

>>8910325
I don't think it's necessarily a Twitter thing. Jeremy Blaustein has always been a bit of a prick. I remember he appeared as a guest on a podcast some years ago in the late 2000's and most of it was him trashing all of his former co-workers while absolving himself of any responsibilities.

There are quite few creators that were a big deal in their day, but then felt from grace for whatever reason, so they cling into whatever former glory they used to have as proof that they were someone at some point.

Yeah it's the game for people who have never played any other game.
>>
>>8910465
It was a AAA game before AAA games were a thing. I don't think there was any other game from the same period that had the same production values and attention-to-detail that MGS1 had. The closest thing was the Final Fantasy VII (which had zero voice acting) and the first two Resident Evil games.
>>
>>8910484
Yup. People can piss and moan all they want MGS is a movie game but even in terms of gameplay, MGS totally destroyed competition with its engaging puzzle solving and arcade mechanics (i.e. time attacking and ranking system - later on expanded on VR Missions) and the complex boss fights in a 3D setting for the first time. There was nothing like it at the time and it would take a very long time for other vidya to catch up to it.
>>
>>8910551
Even as a moviegame, I don't think there were any game that had cutscenes quite as elaborate as MGS1 prior to it. Final Fantasy VII relies way too much on pre-rendered videos and the cutscenes in the Resident Evil games are pretty basic for the most part.
