Snake's real name is David. I know which I'm voting for.

I have Dota 2 in my Steam library. I've never even touched Metal Gear Solid 4. I'm voting for Metal Gear Solid 4.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW YOU ANYMORE.

MGS4, the REAL winner of the GotY 2008 discussions.

#6 Posted by Palmlykta (225 posts) -

Well I love Metal Gear but I think Dota2 is better than MGS4.

I have Dota 2 in my Steam Library, never touched it. I bought Metal Gear Solid 4 when I bought a PS3 three months ago, never touched it.

I DON'T KNOW ME ANYMORE.

MGS 4 has a fist fight between two ageing clones as it's ending set piece. That's more than enough to win this contest.

#10 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (5513 posts) -

MGS 4 is the only Metal Gear game I've ever beaten. It's also up against Dota, so it's a pretty easy choice for me.

#11 Posted by Veektarius (4836 posts) -

There is no other game in this bracket I have more pleasure voting against than DOTA 2. And yes, I've played it.

That is one damn fine looking boxart.

Little known fact, the "D" in Dota also stands for David.

Wow DOTA is just feeding MGS, right guys? :D

...right? :(

ANYWAY, WOO MGS4!

#15 Edited by Pr1mus (3911 posts) -

A bad MGS is still better than Dota 2.

#16 Posted by Nekroskop (2786 posts) -

DOTA2 is not a game.

#17 Edited by Master_Funk (733 posts) -

Lol DOTA 2 don't have no fight on a tanker between Old snake and Ocelot

#18 Posted by Trilogy (2655 posts) -

I voted for Dota because I really don't like MGS. Those games do nothing for me.

#19 Posted by Pie (7099 posts) -

Yeah F DOTA!

Also, no mooing in DOTA 2.

#21 Edited by AngelN7 (2970 posts) -

There's some amazing stuff in MGS4 like listening to a podcast about the game using your ingame ipod, that alone gets my vote plus is a pretty good game that still holds up.

#22 Posted by Mezmero (1904 posts) -

Meh I never thought Dota 2 should have been in the running anyway. It's clearly a next gen game since people were upgrading hardware halfway through the console cycle to play it at a solid framerate. The MGS series has always been a mind fuck and part 4 (also Rising) was no exception. I prefer a Solid single player over free prolonged multiplayer any day of the week.

#23 Posted by EXTomar (4736 posts) -

Both of these games represent a bridge or a transition from "the old version" to "the new version". Kind of interesting.

As for mooing...

#24 Posted by Vitor (2821 posts) -

YOU PEOPLE ARE CRAZY.

The worst MGS or the BEST MULTIPLAYER GAME OF ALL TIME?!

Caps lock is not sufficient to express my displeasure.

#25 Posted by SarcasticMudcrab (184 posts) -

Why all the hate? People are always seemingly randomly aggressive towards moba games, I don't get it. Dota gets my sympathy vote here.

#26 Edited by BeachThunder (11942 posts) -

Convince me to vote for one of these.

Well I prefer a LIQUID single player.

Ha - ha!

I've done all I can. The rest is up to you.

#29 Posted by davidwitten22 (1708 posts) -

It's fun to hate on games you've never played apparently. I played both and I liked DotA 2 better, I've put 600+ hours into it and will probably keep playing it for another 600.

Because someone prefers MGS4 over a MOBA it means they've never played DotA? That's ridiculous.

#31 Posted by Slag (4388 posts) -

So much hatred, so much fear for people what don't understand. God forbid games actually do something new.

This shouldn't be a contest, Metal Gear Solid IV while good isn't even the best Metal Gear. DOTA 2 is the best MOBA ever made.

#32 Posted by EXTomar (4736 posts) -

Actually deciding who the winner is feels to me to be "meh". What is more fun and is the campaigning! So to that end...

Convince me to vote for one of these.

Do you want female persuasion?

If you understand the joke, you've already voted for Dota 2!

Or do you want male persuasion?

#33 Posted by TowerSixteen (542 posts) -

I'm surprised how much of a landslide this is. Figured Dota would have a stronger showing.

I have a hard time liking things "ironically", and I care about good writing, so I could in no way ever vote for a MGS game.

#34 Edited by EXTomar (4736 posts) -

To be serious for a moment, I will not be surprised more people have played MGS4 than Dota 2.

#35 Posted by Levius (1135 posts) -

Well, as of this post I see everything is order with MGS4 winning, good work community.

#36 Edited by ShadowConqueror (3052 posts) -

Sunny side up.

#37 Edited by RecSpec (3817 posts) -

Say Nota to Dota.

I find MGS4 disappointing, but holy shit MGO was amazing.

#38 Posted by RetroVirus (1472 posts) -

I like both games, but that tanker fight is just too good. When it cuts to the Snake Eater theme I almost fell off my couch.

#39 Edited by FoolishChaos (437 posts) -

Guess I should finally play that copy of mgs4 I bought for $15 like 2 years ago

#40 Posted by xyzygy (9993 posts) -

Don't really know much about Dota 2 but is it really that bad that MGS4 is winning over it?

I voted MGS4. I don't own a PS3.

Oh, and I've played DOTA 2. That game is shit. Utter, utter shit.

#43 Edited by Vuud (1996 posts) -

I didn't vote FOR MGS4 as much as I voted AGAINST DOTA2, yes I'm that kind of voter.

#44 Posted by crithon (3253 posts) -

I know fans love Dota2, but seriously, it's a FREEEEEEEE GAME with awesome community functionality. But then the community is a horrible void of screaming children where you have to play nice with them, and you can't just hit things on your own. It punishes you for not paying attention the micro small text chat and it punishes you for not even thinking for yourself. Seriously this whole Genre has a long time before it's ready to be playable.

MGS4 has old dudes stabbing each other in the neck. And this is the AMERICA THEME

yes it has horrible narrative problems "Nanomachines son," but still it's an experience of an out dated piece of tech trying to keep up with Next Gen it's a very fitting example of where Metal Gear fits in this whole industry.

#45 Posted by supamon (1333 posts) -

I would have picked MGS if it was Snake Eater but 4 is poop, narratively and gameplay wise.

Dota, on the other hand, created an entirely new genre. How can that not instantly be game of the generation?? Don't let a small part of the dark side of dota community cloud your judgement.

#46 Posted by mrfluke (5155 posts) -

fuck your dota 2.

MGS4

Well, I mean. For one thing, Dota 2 didn't create a new genre. DotA may have but you can't just reward a sequel based on the accomplishments of it's predecessor. I have nothing against Dota 2 but I'm voting for MGS4 because I really liked MGS4.

#48 Edited by Sooty (8082 posts) -

The worst Metal Gear Solid game vs. that sweet, sweet, podcast hogging Dota 2.

Now if this was Metal Gear Solid 1, or Snake Eater, I would have to sway away from Dota.

Dota2 is Dota1. They're both the same game that share the same heroes, balance tweaks and hero updates. Though as mentioned by some people already, these GotG match ups are kinda weird. We're comparing a mainly single-player focused game against a mainly multi-player focused game.

#50 Posted by Zero_ (1973 posts) -

This is my hardest choice: I mean, MGS4 is pretty crazy and that's what I love about MGS. But it's no MGS3. And Dota2 is well... Dota, so there goes my vote.
