I love Metal Gear. It’s stupid, smart, serious, funny, and I don’t know how much of it is purposeful vs. half-luck. Kojima has retconned the story repeatedly, which is amazing and stupid at the same time.
The fiction keeps turning on its head and jumping through decades entwining real history with giant nuclear robots, vampires, and people being possessed by adopted cadaver limbs...or maybe not!
Anyhow, Metal Gear is amazing and its also bullshit. I think it’s unfair to call it one or the other. It’s both. I kinda wish Kojima would have ended V with “it was all just a dream, just to come full circle on the fuckery.”
I preamble this shit on the Death Stranding forum as I’m not sure if this new game will be amazing or a boring slog, but I guess it’ll be weird! Between Conan’s purposefully bad comedy, talk about sexy otter hats, and whatever the fuck Normal Reedus is doing with his hands...consider me interested?
Check this shit out:
I think I was just sold on this horse shit. And good or bad, I’ll be okay with throwing money at this. I need to know for myself.
