It's no Evangelion.

This really is not news. Some guy saying "Yeah I would want to make the game" when he does not even own the rights anymore does not qualify.

Bwahaha, I used to play Runescape when I was in middle school, I had to go to a library after school to wait for my parents to get off of work so I would just log in and play it. Good memories.

@TooWalrus: @FluxWaveZ: Yeah, looks like Polygon reviews do go up there, and the P4G one is not up yet, so it could very well surpass/meet TWD score. But hey, either way its awesome. Good games getting the respect they deserve makes me happy.

@FluxWaveZ: Just checked, looks like The Walking Dead is ahead of it, but just by 1 point. TWD is 95, P4G is 94

Obviously A, the GOTY choices are how I decide how to live my life in the new year.

Alright, thanks for the input guys, looks like a vast majority advise to play through them all. I will buy it sometime this week and get started. Wish me luck!

Hey, so I have never played a Metal Gear game. I know, I know, I have heard the hype surrounding them but I did not play this one so I felt like I couldn't just jump into the middle. With the recent news surrounding the series, Ground Zeros and The Phantom Pain (pretty obviously a Metal Gear game I think), and I have gotten interested. I have absorbed some of the story and some moments throughout the years, but I would not say I know what happens in each game or anything. I own the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, but I only bought it because a friend of mine who does not own any consoles really is into them and let him play, so I have those 3. I would also be willing to buy any others I needed to for the main storyline (I think only MGS1 and 4?). So my question, do I start with this and work my way through the whole series? Is it worth it? Since I have not played them I do not really know what I like that is similar, so maybe name something that people like for the same reasons and I can tell from that? I don't know, I am really thinking about it, but it is a serious time commitment and I just want to be sure before I start.

Thanks in advance for any help!

@Happenstance said:

@jking47: No, its because Nintendo of Europe is based in Germany so they have to abide by their more strict rules

I see, thanks for the explanation. Sucks for them, or maybe they just need to get better lawyers to argue their way out of this dumb stuff.

I hope they can figure out a way to fix this, it could seriously impact digital sales of games in Europe.

@Happenstance: @MB: Does this restriction apply to XBLA and PSN games in Germany also? If not, why would only the Nintendo console have this restriction?

Also feel like I should just chime in saying this is insane. I clicked the thread not believing it could be true. SO WEIRD.
