for the ones that dont own this game yet
( IMO If you dont dont own this game you do not deserve a ps3, but its just me ....)

Maybe you don't own the game because you don't like the game...that's going to be my choice.

Yes there are also people who dislike chocolate, smiles and puppies. You can dislike MGS4 but its not normal. Even if you don't think its the best game ever, its pretty decentt all around no matter how you look at it.

How is it not normal? I dislike Halo, and don't think Gears is the end all game that its being hyped up to be. I thougth MGS4 was a 'good' game, but nothing super special or what people say it is(no, not a single reason to buy a PS3). Everyone has their own opinions, disliking what others do like being somehow 'weird' makes no sense.

I don't hate you. But it must suck to not want to play MGS4. Maybe you haven't played the previous games, so you're not as attached. But, If you don't own the game how do you hate it?

I find it funny how people say shit like "You don`t deserve a ps3 if you don`t like MGS4" Well sorry to burst your isolated bubble but people have different tastes and like different games, maybe I buy a ps3 to play Little Big Planet, if you guys go on with shit and saying people don`t deserve to buy one, the ps3 community isn`t going anywhere positive.
By the way, I own a Ps3 I don`t own MGS4(Yet) but I plan on owning it very soon as I love the series.

It is not the norm, therefore it is not normal. If a person likes having sex on a cliff with a dog while being whipped, is that wrong? No, should he be not allowed to do so? No. Is it normal? No. So again you can choose not to like chocolate, MGS4, or any other normal things, and are entitled to do so, I'm saying you should be able to own a ps3. However I am saying you are not normal, you do not follow the mainstream, and you do not fit the average paradigm.

Metal Gear Solid has one of the most split fanbases I've ever seen. Some fans like all the games, some like only a few, some just like only one game in the franchise. The games take on different extremes with each installment, which is why fans either enjoy it or dislike it, it's not unusual to find someone who only likes one or two games in the franchise while hating the others.

#9 Posted by Solid_SnakeXx (1771 posts) -

The demo is up in the European store now... so you can try it out  if you havent bought the full game yet...

#10 Posted by PenguinNerd (959 posts) -

Yeah I was browsing the Japanese PSN store last night and came across the MGS4 demo and was like wait what!?!  Kind of interested in how long the demo is itself and if they kept the cutscenes in...

So it's good, but you dislike it... Do you normally dislike good things?

I don't like it either...I thought MGS4 was so boring I had to stop playing about 4 hours in, and I never want to go back to it.

Why's that?
#14 Posted by MB (13075 posts) -

...because I had never played any of the previous MGS games, and it made little sense to me and seemed like a bunch of fan service and nothing more.

There was fan service, but you obviously wouldn't get the story of a game that's hailed as having one of the most complex and deep stories ever, if you haven't played the first three...

I have played it. I owned it and got rid of it after beating it...and I am a huge fan of this series. I own every single previous game in the franchise (including before things got solid :P ) and loved them...I bought the LE of MGS4 and was greatly disappointed with what I got. It is possible for huge MGS fans not to enjoy MGS4.

Me too. Of course anytime I express my distaste towards MGS4 the fans come rushing in with negatives and pitch forks. The game was absurdly boring. Gave up halfway into the second act.

It's not that you hate the game, but the condition in which you played it... If you have no back story and understanding of what's going on, then how can  you give it a fair rating? It's like walking into the movie theater in the last five minutes and then walking out and saying the movie sucked...

I've played the second one, who said I haven't played an MGS game before?

Sorry, I thought you were MB. Regardless, if you've only played the second one, your still seeing it skewed. Did you even beat the second one? Either way I don't care if you like it or not, as long as it was a given a fair chance.

Ok wow, this topic is just stupid now. Apparently anyone who dislikes the game, or just doesn't think its a 'buy a ps3' kind of game(seeing as I don't think any game is worth purchasing an entire console for, but multiple games) they're apparently not normal and need a long explanation of events causing them to feel like this. Some people don't like games others do, no matter how much they're hyped.....get over it. I played every other MGS, and I thought 4 was decent, but nothing more....I generally thought MGS and MGS3 were far superior to 4, but that's my opinion. Everyone doesn't need an in depth amount of reasons for just not liking or not thinking any game is as amazing as others say it is. People need to get used to teh fact that everyone has different opinions, and just because some of you think that apparently this is the end all game and people 'don't deserve' to have a PS3 without playing it and absolutely loving it, you're not anymore right than anyone else is.

#22 Posted by HandsomeDead (11863 posts) -

It's this constant fallback to MGS4 that seems to be perpetuating the PS3 has no games idea. Like really, this demo should have been out a few weeks before the game, not months after.

That's fair enough but I reckon you are missing out of a truly fantastic series, no doubt one of the finest in the history of videogames. If I were in your position I would try to get the  MGS collection, after you play that you will want to play MGS4, and I think you will gain a more respectful opinion on it,

MGS4 is not really the kind of game one can jump into without playing any of the previous games., in doing so you are bound to miss out on so much without the lack of knowledge of past games stories and characters.

 A fourth game in a series is bound to have lashings of fan service, especially with this game what with Snake leaving the stage so to speak.

If this is directed at me, then go back and read what I said. I said you don't have to like the game, but at least have to have given it a fair chance before saying you don't like it.

It was more just generalized at anyone saying such, but mostly directed at Solid Snake since he said those words' you don't deserve a ps3 unless you own this game', which as said, makes no sense because anyone can dislike any game, it doesn't make them weird, just his stupid opinion, but that's nothing new from him....he touts the PS3 and games on it so high then goes to another topic and says its shit and the 360 is better and gears 2 is the best game ever, so I hardly would ever take him seriously.

couple months. i dont see the problem with it. its just a demo...
#28 Posted by zitosilva (1841 posts) -

Wouldn't make sense to release a demo for this game before its release because people were going to buy it anyway. Hell, most people bought a Ps3 just to play it.
The release of the demo probably has something to do with the game reaching the 4 million mark (if I'm not mistaken). I guess that either people already bought it or never has interest in it, and maybe the demo will make a difference to the later group.

#30 Posted by Fr0Br0 (3100 posts) -

I think the people who already wanted to buy MGS4 have bought it. I doubt a demo is going to win over that many hearts. And seeing this topic, the people new to the series wouldn't enjoy the full game anyway.

My parents dislike it. Talk to the hand.

I may be able to convince them to approve it with this here demo. :D (I'm 16 and going to college by the way.. This is what religion does to normal adults people).

16 and already going to college? I sure hope you can handle what's coming to you. I sure wasn't mature enought to go to college when I was 16.

But considering that only 1 out of 3 PS3 users bought the game means that you have 66% more chances to find one who does not like the game than finding one who likes it.
#35 Posted by PureRok (4236 posts) -

The whole "you don't deserve to own this or that" thing is stupid. Anybody who puts down $500+ for something (or pays any money in general) "deserves" it, since they payed for it.

You can only really say someone doesn't deserve something if they stole it... or mistreat it (if it's living).

#36 Posted by addictedtopinescent (3645 posts) -

I don't have a PS3 for it but I like the series, and BTW some people hate big stories in their games, others hate when there is no story, it's normal for people to not like MGS4 but it's dumb to say the game's story is crap and that the graphics are bad..
