Which carries more weight in persuading you to get a PS3?

Honestly, MGS4 is the single most inflential game for me... and will definitely cause me to buy a PS3 once the game is released.

Its a tie for me, I love both series in a different way.
#3 Posted by NWA_31 (11923 posts) -
MGS4 for me too. I love FF, but MGS4 sounds really awesome. I wouldn't be surprised if that gamebecomes Game of the Year.
#4 Posted by NeoGen85 (4192 posts) -
I'll say Metal Gear Solid 4 at the moment.
#5 Posted by Amnesiac23 (8272 posts) -

Both, but in different ways. This is why I HAVE to have a PS3. I cannot miss these games!

There's no way anything can get near MY MGS :P

Dang, after reading all these other posts I feel like a loser now...but I still gotta say FFXIII AND FFvXIII. I love MGS as much as the next person, but I gotta have my FF. And the trailers for both FFs look freakin awesome.
#9 Posted by Amnesiac23 (8272 posts) -
yup like I said. Love both series, but if I HAD to choose one, it would be FF. Soooo....I'm looking forward to FFXIII more
#10 Posted by Fantasy_Gamer (14158 posts) -

I don't know. The graphics of FFXIII is great, but so far, none of the trailers has really amazed me, so until then, MGS4...

I'll agree to that. I know people don't want things spoiled for them. But Square Enix rarely shows anything. And if they do you have to wait forever. The 15 minute trailer for Metal Gear Solid 4 is enough to satisfy anyone I think. New trailers for FFXIII are way over due! Honestly with the world's current state with foreign policies, military contractors, and the Middle East I can't help but be interested in Metal Gear Solid 4. Simply brilliant that Hideo wrapped the series up in all that mess. The average US soldier makes less then $35K a year but a individual in a PMC can make more then enough yearly or even in a month.

Dont get me wrong, I think the MGS4 trailer looks frickin amazing and I cant wait for it. But that Final Fantasy name just draws me in. Lightning looks sooo cool. She's my desktop background right now :p. The dude in vXIII looks cool too. The trailer reminded me of Akira (mainly because of the chair lol), and it's a Kingdom Hearts battle system with a Final Fantasy story. Could it get any better?

Yes. Final Fantasy with a God of War combat system: simple and fun. Hehe, but I guess Kingdom Hearts is good too. Final Fantasy XIII is interesting as well.

Eh, I prefer to relate it to KH since I've never really liked GoW. I'm definitely getting a 360, but I just cant decide if I'd rather have a PS3 or a Wii.

By using a GOOD action battly system instead of the button mashy one from Kingdom Hearts, it could be much much better.

Also, if it wasn't set in a Phantasy Star esque world and was, instead, set in a Final Fantasy esque world

It it didn't use Tetsuya Nomura's tired out and repetitive art that lacks it's own style, it could be better

Hell. Yes. GOW kicks serious ass. It would also be better if it had a DMC like battle system

hehe yeah, that is a great idea. I guess they kinda did it with Dissidia with the Warrior of Light seeing as he was only shown in Amano's art so that's all they really had to go by.

Sure is

This is easy to say mgs4, ff13 dispite being a ff game doesnt have a history like mgs does.. and any one who is any one whos every played mgs knows what im talking about... the epic cinematic story told by hideo kojima. There is not a single game to this date that has been able to present itself cinematicaly like mgs has sinse mgs1 for psx. The story is SO damn powerful it will defenetly touchmost of us who have fallowed the seriesfor more than just the action and espionage (unlike a lot ofdouche bags.."Ya! mgs is awsome dude.. u canknock out people and put them in lockers and @#$%. or break there neck!"). I can only imagine the ending of mgs4 if its truly the end of theseries.All the questions will be answered.

Its like i said, ff games are nice but u cant put them in front of a game that has had u embarked and captivated with a solid story for 9 years.....

We go from a "Manhattan incident" in MGS2 which released about 2 or 3 months after 9/11. And now we're heading to the Middle East in MGS4. It's still a Metal Gear Solid storyline taking somecore elements from the original Metal Gear in terms of the connection between Big Boss's ideology and this new mother company called Outer Heaven(which originally is the name of Big Boss's fortified state). But also how terrorism has becomea excuse to ease the restriction of military intervention in foreign countries. And that's not even the half of it. Everything you see today is discussed in MGS4.

Yeahstory of theMGS series is truly engrossing.and as Neo said the series has taken up actual issues in the world today. I want both games and both of the series' kick ass.

I am sure there will be more games after it. Probably not in the official storyline though. Shinta Nojiri might take over the series./ HE tells a good tale

I hav to agree MGS does a very solid job of building and coalescing many small storylines into one larger, more fluid experience. MGS has brought together some of the best cinematic scenes, acting and characters we hav ever seen. Although FFXIII, like all other FFs will hav its own individual charm, I personally believe to compare FF to MGS is like asking which is better......an apple or a carrot....they are just so different.

#45 Posted by VanCraSh (13 posts) -
i think ffXIII & ffvXIII because ff's, as rpg's, gives more freedom and play time.... I have played almsot every ff for around 80-100 hours each one, and finished like 6 times the ones i like the most (ff7, 8, 10 and 5.... a MGS is a awesome game, and i've cried finishing them.... but i have never played one for more than 50, or finished it more than 3 times... it's about how much good time can the game give to you.... a ff last much longer in my case (i still play blitzball with ff10 often, after like 7 years... lol)
#46 Posted by fs_metal (25711 posts) -
I have lost count of how many times i have finished MGS1. Geez. More than 20
#47 Posted by Silicon_Noob (521 posts) -
Both games really played a key role in persuading me to buy the system. That said I primarily bought it (in March) with ff xiii in mind, however at the moment I am more excited about mgs4 cuz the release date looks more solid so the end iswithin sight, while ff xiii's release date looks vague and I expect that just as we begin to draw close to the finishline SE will extend it by 6-12 months. Also MGS has always maintained high standards while FF has begun slumming recently (DoC, AC and FF xii were all extremely dissapointing).
