The lights are on
You're a sneaky person. You've snaked your way through terrorist infested islands and helped save the world from nuclear annihilation countless times. Don't just sneak around these message boards. It's time to be heard.
It wasn't a sneaking game when Kojima's team was working on it either. It was basically a hack and slash then as well.
Rising has never been a true Metal Gear game as Kojima was never directly involved in its creation.
If you bred HK-47, Shale, Chai Ka and Wrex, the gaming world would explode from sheer badassery.
I think that the new game will be set before MGS3 , maybe telling the story of The Boss. Anyway, its always great imagining complex stuff .
Like I said, I think Bayonetta and DMC fans are gonna enjoy this title much more than MGS fans.
As for the real mgs5, personally I don't want them to go backwards, even if I think Snake is the greatest game hero ever, merely because I love the technological aspect. Controlling a mech or a super ninja, that's where I want this series headed.
But in my oppinion, Kojima has to make a new hero. I don't care about Raiden, and I believe the man who made Snake, the Boss, and Ocelot is more than capable.
Originally, I just wanted to see more of Snake too. But the more I think of it, endlessly revisiting that finnished story won't really improve it. If anything, it'll cheapen it. I think we just need to trust Kojima can do it again with a different tale.
As a sequel...I don't know about this. I love these characters, and the last scene in MGS 4 tied everything together unlike anything I've ever seen in a game. I wouldn't mind a prequel, though.
P.S. I know this post is kind of pointless because of Ground Zeroes, but this was how I felt before.
