Metal Gear Solid V Dated.



  1. I’ll be skipping the next Metal Gear game until it’s on sale. I’ve never been a big fan of this series and after they charged us for a demo I decided to boycott the next game until I can pick up a used copy.

    1. Until the forth game in the series I was a big Metal Gear fan and this one looks, interesting but I won’t be rushing out to get it either. Perhaps I’ll pick up the demo cheap on eBay first.

      1. I remember when demos were free… what happened to those days :].

        I’ve never been a big metal gear fan to be honest, but I never really gave the series a chance. I played through part 2, and 3 and didn’t like them. I’m more of a Splinter Cell fan.

      2. To be fair most demos still are free, its just a few penny pinchers like Konami who think they can take your average gamer for all their worth.

        As for the Metal Gear series itself well, 2 isn’t a great place to start Twin Snakes on the GameCube is however, it’s very expensive these days so I say grab the original off PSN, alongside Snatcher it remains Hideo Kojima’s best work.

      3. You’re assuming I have Playstation lol.

        I’ll pass. I’ve seen my brother play all of the games and I’m really not interested in them. I don’t Metal Gear Solid is a good stealth game or tells a good story for that matter.

        Instead of demos we have “early access” now and it’s going to keep happening to people get smart and say enough is enough.

        There have been some gems that have come out of early access though. I brought them after they were fully released.

      4. I get why some people can’t see the finer aspects of Metal Gear. It isn’t after all the best stealth game nor does it tell an earth shattering story, it does though have a certain charm I think a number of games in the genre lack.

        As for this, “early access” trend well. Having never played anything on early access I’m far from an authority but I think that’s all this is, a trend and it’ll fizzle out in due course.
