For once videogameking is right, the answer is Slinky. 2nd place being that baby head spider thing.

I want all new characters please, but I certainly wouldn't mind some cameos from some old social links, like the One True Team Manager (Yuko>>>>>>Ai). Overall I just want Persona 5. If there wasn't a single reference to any Persona or SMT games I would still be very very stoked.
Honestly man, just shell out the $30 on amazon and get a real xbox 360 controller. I don't even own an xbox, but I have one for PC usage and I absolutely love it. Here's one for $23. If you can't afford a $23 controller because you're waiting for next gen, maybe you aren't financially ready for next gen.
Thank you for all the positive feedback. (And I fixed the typo!) I do love the tech of games and perhaps I should start writing little blog posts like this about various topics to give myself an outlet to do so.
I too would love to see advances in AI, not just inside gaming, but in general. There are actually some great strides being made in a number of techniques, the most exciting for me being a recent resurgence in the use of deeply layered neural networks. Expect computer speech and image recognition to very handily improve in the next couple of years (think google now, google goggles, Siri, etc). Human-level A.I. is way off, unless we stumble on it by accident, as we are woeful unable to explain the underpinnings of human thought yet. @davidwitten22 and @believer258 you should both read the story "Evidence" by Issac Asimov. It's about the very topic of hidden robots in society and although its been years since I read it I remember being fond of it.
That sounds absolutely terrifying, but I want to read it. Apparently its a short story, but how would I go about finding it? Do I need the book "I, Robot"? Or is it part of some anthology or...???
And I apologize for derailing the conversation (which appears to be dead anyways), I just have had my interest piqued.
I've always been fascinated by the idea of a robot that could be fully integrated into society and no one would know. Not a Terminator, but an artificial being that could think and feel on its own..
That's actually my biggest fear.
Though I'd never played a Metal Gear Solid game before, I figured, "What the hell, it came bundled with my console, I'll give it a play."
The game parts were... fine, I guess. Nothing to boast of. The controls weren't exactly rock solid and the genre (stealth) was one that I'm not well suited to and had no experience in. However, since this was my first Metal Gear game, most of what appealed to everyone who had given it a 10 (hearing more of the... I hesitate to use the word "story" but there it is) and reconnecting with the legendary Solid Snake after his long absence was completely lost on me. The game was what I came for and the game... wasn't fun. Wasn't even good. Was one of the worst experiences I ever had in gaming.
The story is one of the most major factors of the Metal Gear Solid franchise. Are you somehow surprised that you didn't enjoy a game when you walked into the fourth entry of a VERY confusing video game series that was in a genre that you don't care for? I mean I understand all the criticisms that MGS4 receives (as I don't care for it either), but saying "I came for the "game" man and the game was bad" is a really stupid point to make. I wouldn't come into the third Lord of the Rings movie completely blind with no knowledge of any of the other two movies or the books and be like "ALL THESE PEOPLE KEEP TALKING ABOUT STUFF WHO ARE YOU WIZARD GUY?" You set yourself up to not like the game, and that's why you didn't. It's pretty simple, review scores had nothing to do with it.
And only stupid people look at review scores and don't read the actual review.
This game makes me realize more and more that I don't know shit about DC comics. Character looks nice, hopefully they will make some more tweaks to make the game more interesting for spectators. And please, please, please fix the stage balance. Poor gadget characters...
