quote DragonMaster DyneUmm okay? Such comments for a game that isn't even out yet.I just don't want to have to wait 2-3 more years for a stealth MG game while we are given this action-oriented garbage in the meantime.
Hopefully its sooner rather than later.
quoteAlso, for those who didn't, take a look:It was a good decision to change the story to "post MGS4". Before you start throwing stones, I'd like to say why. As a fan of the series, it's obvious I would prefer a game to fill a gap in the series over one that continues what was supposed to be a perfectly conclusive ending.
HOWEVER, people have to understand that this game is looking to expand the franchise's appeal. They want new players.
You can't deny there is a LOT of storyline luggage you have to carry in order to understand a numbered title of the series. I remember trying to convince friends that never played MGS to try MGS4, but they would have to pretty much play all of the older games in order to understand MGS4, and most people can't be bothered by playing a lot of old games in order to understand a new one.
Now we have an action title, that will appeal to people that never had interest in the series because there was never enough action for them. I'm sure KojiPro and Platinum will try their best to make this story self-explanatory. No need to read the whole MGS Database to understand what's going on.
That's for the best interest of the new audiences. After all, it's not a numbered title of the series, it doesn't have the obligation to go deeper into an universe that is already filled with content. They just want to start something new and simpler.
If the game was between MGS2 and MGS4, it would be NECESSARY to play MGS2 in order to understand it. Who the hell is Sunny? What's the body of Big Boss good for? Patriots? And what about this old lady Big Mama?
Try to explain any of these questions to a complete newcomer in short sentences and still make it feel understandable and interesting.
For the new Rising, all the player needs to know is that Raiden is a guy who had a crappy childhood fighting wars. He put his past behind him and became a family man, but now it's haunting him again (for some reason). That's all. His new mission probably has nothing to do directly with the previous events of the games. No Patriots anymore, no Snake, no Foxhound etc. Maybe Rose is there, but all you need to know is that she's his wife, or used to be, or whatever. It's a clean state. If there was never a MGS game before it, the plot would still be understandable. That, I believe, is their goal with this new direction.
quote Fire FoxYeah, but some people don't like having a favorite franchise or their favorite characters used for alternative universes.Some people need to learn what a spin-off is, lol.
