Edited By tdous • Ok, hi nobody on the internet who will ever read this. I'd never played a pre-5 MGS and after watching this series I'm fine with that. I only started playing MGS 5 years after release due to having a crap PC at the time, and loved it, though I'd only played it up to just before 31 (Sahelanthropus) for time reasons. And recently watching this series I've loved experiencing 1-4 via Drew as I don't think I'd have the patience, and it gave context to a lot of the story stuff in 5. So it's incredibly annoying this close to the end after watching all of 1-4 and most of 5 back to back to have to choose whether or not to bother finishing this series because the hosts clearly don't want to be there. Especially Dan, who's infectious giggly excitement about every aspect of doing this whole series has helped keep me wanting to go through it, even in the face of an occasionally visibly disenchanted Drew. Now he sits there barely awake, "whatever"ing his way through it all. And I don't believe for a second it's because his opinion on the game has changed - he said as much - he'll always think his play-through was a fantastic time. He's clearly just bored with it and can't be bothered to muster the enthusiasm he fostered in me as a viewer earlier in the series to make the rest of it not feel like a slog. Makes it hard to want to buy into anything he makes in future, though since this was apparently his favourite series of all maybe there'd never be such a long-running one again anyway. I realise this has been a long game (as much as this play-through is obviously not relative to many peoples') in a very long series but it does a disservice to anyone who ever found themselves invested in the content he makes partly due to his enthusiasm and encouragement. I feels like about 10 episodes before this they should have announced it just wasn't fun anymore and it was drawing to a close.And yes, "move on, it's not important in the grand scheme of things" people, I get it. But they set out the stall, and I was happy to line up and keep buying, but they've already left. And also, yes, this is a 3/4 year old series - it's just a real shame to one of GB's better long running things peter out in such an unfulfilling way. If this pointless rant to no one ever achieves anything I hope it's as a reminder that a) if you have a fun ongoing series people will get invested in it, and b) if you drag that series out past the point where you can even pretend to appear interested it leaves a sour taste on the whole thing.Of course I can go finish it myself and see the remaining story beats, but I *was* enjoying them uncover them. A real shame.
