I played them for the first time two years ago and I just fell in love. I personally thought they held up well for the most part (a lot of discussion I've read seems otherwise?) and the MGS is easily my number one favorite series. I own multiple copies (hd collection digital on ps3 and vita, legacy collection physical for ps3, ground zeroes physical + digital) and don't regret it at all. I do find them a tad difficult to play on the vita but I may just not be used to shooters/stealth games on it.
I didn't find the story difficult to understand at all if you pay enough attention, and I find the 'nanomachines' meme about 4 to be way overblown, and just loved every single thing about them.
Have fun with MGS3, it's easily my favorite of the series!
@madman356647: MGSV was never marketed to be the same as the original games, it was always marketed as more open world and didn't talk about the story that much. The 'E3 graphics' for Watch Dogs were also unfinished, iirc, meaning they were scrapped earlier.
Watch Dogs wasn't marketed on launch w/ the 'E3 graphics', MGSV was never marketed as more than what it was. MGSV had a story, people just weren't happy with it because the fanbase built it up as if it was going to be more than it actually was, and it did close the 'loop', it showed what was going on between MGS3/PW and MG1.
Cinematic trailers aren't gameplay trailers and don't try to pass as gameplay trailers.
The issue w/ NMS is that they still have the E3 footage showing on Steam as if that was the final product (pictures too, I believe), and it's been there for weeks with no sign of any change (or a word from the devs). While Watch Dogs was 'downgraded' from what they initially showed, and MGSV was always ambiguous but never promised more then what was actually there (that was a case of the fanbase building hype, expecting it to be super cinematic like the previous games), No Man's Sky most definitely did and it's still showing itself off as more than what it actually is.
I'm not great (most likely not even good) at it but I find it fun, every time I've gone it was with my dad. It's just a relaxing day out. I was actually thinking about it not to long ago, thinking I'd ask my dad if he wanted to go again.
I'd rather have nothing. I was content with nothing.
I was waiting to see what Konami would do with the next Metal Gear game, cautiously optimistic. This though...jesus christ. I'd be 100% more ok with it if it wasn't connected to the Metal Gear series in anyway, that way I could at least ignore it as just another generic multiplayer zombie survival game. But Konami can fuck off and die already, there's no reason to drag the Metal Gear franchise down with you. This is just gross.
