I don't get it.the exception of patrick as he said he didnt really like it and jeff says he only likes the even number mgs games.yea its really confusing at least in relation to brad, considering he gave the game 5 starts and fought for it hard for goty.I just listened to that GOTY recently. Hearing that and then their recent MGS talks... just baffling.You bring up Brad and that's the most drastic swing, to the point where it doesn't really make any sense. Jeff is a bit on board here, but Pat and Ryan not so much... I don't know.To me it's just MGS4 is so up its own ass and absolutely crazy that if you like it, you should just be down with MGS period, case closed. I say that as a fan of it, btw.yea figured you were a fan, wouldn't be repping big boss in your avatar if you weren't i bet.im with you on what your saying as that's part of why i like mgs, cause its soo goddamm crazy and i love their commitment to being crazy and taking their core story seriously,it s just for some reason jeff says he never was interested in the big boss games. (thats crazy to me as mgs 3 is my favorite) something about the big boss stuff being more grounded in vietnam era being tooo crazy (do not know the exact reasoning) he's a little bit on board here cause of the fire horse stuff.Patrick has said before he really liked 1 and 3 and rising and not 2 and 4, but he does get why people like that series as a whole.Ryan never played any mgs games except for 4 and i believe 4 was his number 1 game in 08.brad's sudden swing........ i mean look at thisid have to guess its him more objectively looking at the game rather than subjectively reviewing it (this was year 1 of GB, probably didn't fully develop their style yet)To your point, GB does seem to "objectively" review at times (look at how Ryan reviewed AC III then kind of trashed it after last year).But that being said... at GOTY time all that "objective" stuff is off the table and they were loving MGS4. So that doesn't fly.true, they really did subjectively love that game during the goty stuff at that time.such a weird shift that brad made in regards to mgs4,someone made a good point to me also,he also did this for diablo 3, he gave that game GLOWING PRAISE ("The first Diablo game in over a decade is also one of the most insidiously satisfying loot treadmills in almost as long.) and straight up forgot about it during game of the year.so weird.
