There definitely should be a MGSHD

Exactly the same game as the original, but in gorgeous HD graphics and with analog stick compatibility, available on PSN. Needs to happen.
#2 Posted by ADDTasty (109 posts) -

That would be amazing, but probably too amazing for the PSN. Lately, I've stopped expecting anything from the Playstation Network  =(

Why? Do graphics get you off? MGS is perfectly fine as it is. Nothing in this game demands a graphical update, all it's parts work very well together.

Because it would look awesome? The PSX graphics are fine, but having a clearer, crisper image would improve the game. Don't give me that "graphics add nothing" crap, because they make the game more atmospheric and realistic. It's the only thing about MGS that needs improving, along with analog stick compatibility.

This is sufficient imo.

Yeah, Twin Snakes. You up-res a PSOne game and guess what? It's still going to look like ass.

Except the fucked up the game so many ways when they made that.

I don't know, man. Rare did it with the Banjo games, they still look good. I'd love to see this. I tried playing the PS1 game on my HD- it looks awful!

There should also be a Final Fantasy VII HD. Square doesn't seem to want to make money though.

Aren't there already about 25 billion different versions of that game?

Anyway, Twin Snakes is proof enough that a HD MGS would suck. Its utterly pointless.

Not that I know of? There's only one Final Fantasy VII and that's on PSone and PC. There are other titles in the Final Fantasy VII universe, however, but none of them are as great as Final Fantasy VII. Crisis Core comes close though.

How does that prove anything? The graphical upgrade wasn't the reason why Twin Snakes sucked.

I fucking love the graphics they way they are.  Snake's mouth is pretty much three pixels and his eyes are just dots, it's incredible.  I suppose MGS: HD would be alright, but I wouldn't buy it... in fact, I'd probably just re-buy the PSX version to spite yo ass.

Actually, if they released a version with downgraded graphics I would definitely be all over that.

Very true.

#20 Posted by Otacon (2208 posts) -

I would probably end up buying it, but I don't see it as being completely necessary.

#21 Posted by Emandudeguyperson (2502 posts) -

Buy a GameCube, buy Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes, and shut up.

#22 Posted by Ginger_Avenger (193 posts) -

Improved graphics aren't what made The Twin Snakes a "bad" game (Although I still thoroughly enjoyed it) It was creative choices with the cutscenes that messed up the experience

#23 Posted by Fr0Br0 (3089 posts) -

I don't know about you, but I still think MGS holds up very well despite how far technology has come. It's just a charm that makes it so special.

I wouldn't even want complete remake of MGS with the combat and camera integrated from MGS4. MAJOR changes would have to be made with the level design to make the game not suck and I do NOT want them fucking with my MGS...

really? i think alot of the games on the PSN are great, i mean just look at what we have gotten in the last month or so.... FF7 MGS, trash Panic, bomberman, we will soon get fat princess. plus all the PJ stuff and FlOw and Flower. But to each there own. 
#25 Posted by slinky6 (567 posts) -

Play it on an emulator.   It still looks like ballsack though, I don't think you really understand how resolution and textures work.

#26 Edited by iAmJohn (6107 posts) -

I'd rather they just remake the entire game from the ground up in the MGS4 engine.

I guess - I'm mostly just comparing it to XBLA, because I own over 50 Live Arcade games... lol.
#28 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2205 posts) -

Honestly couldn't care if it was in HD, playing on the ps3 with HDMI cables does a good enough job at making the game look good.

WAT.  I guess you missed the whole texture perspective correction aspect.  Let alone the thriving PSX Emulation scene.
#30 Posted by Emilio (3380 posts) -

I love the pixelated textures of MGS. If you want to play an update, then play Twin Snakes... Or just play MGS4.

#31 Posted by ZanzibarBreeze (3069 posts) -

No. Doesn't need to happen. You can't update the game without changing the controls altogether. As aforementioned, you're looking for The Twin Snakes.

#32 Edited by Sayishere (1838 posts) -

i never played the twin snakes personally (had a gamecube but forgot it even came out)
 
the twin snakes looks quite nice for gamecube
 
hard to get nowadays though
 
i booted up my original MGS the other day
 
the game looks fuck ugly, its unreal
 
i was so impressed with it at the time, i still love it to death though
 
psycho mantis is still to this day my fav boss battle of all time :D

Didn't Twin Snakes make it look better?

*backflips off a missile*
twin snakes was an abortion. Should have just kept the story the same with pretty graphics but no. Had to Xtreme it up.
