That speech alone somehow made the absolutely horrible, shit ending that MGS2 had bearable. Of course, the post-credits scene kind of shit itself again.

Wow, reminds me of 2002 all over again... Back in those days, gaming forums were packed with fanboys b****ing about MGS2 and Raiden over the dumbest reasons... Ah, the good old days.

Hahah I remember those days! MGS2 was awesome tho :cool:

You are f*cking awesome!

Girl in my sig is molly Ringwald from the Breakfast Club.

Ah, reminds me of 1985... the year I was born. Good times, good times (even though I don't remember it).

MGS2 played a big role in creating a lot of hype for the PS2 early on. I still remember how that MGS2 demo shown at E3 2000, demonstrating the graphics and the physics, was what convinced millions of gamers to buy the PS2 (which unfortunately meant the death of the Dreamcast). In other words, it was the PS2's first killer app.

But unfortunately, MGS2 was a victim of its own hype, being promoted as something it was not. It was pretty much an art game (before the "art game" genre even existed) masquerading as a military action game. It was very ahead of its time.

I have no problem with Raiden (I actually thought he was pretty cool at some parts), nor that much issue with the gameplay since it did what I wanted MGS1 to do when I first played it, but didn't. I just have a problem with the massive shitstorm that was the story. It was dumb, convoluted, and ultimately made me feel bad for Raiden in the end the way it screws him over.

I can see where you're coming from. The way Raiden (and by extension the player) was being used like a tool really made a lot of players feel very uncomfortable. But that was pretty much the point of the game, driving home the point Kojima was trying to make. And I wouldn't have it any other way. MGS2 is pretty much the quintessential "love it or hate it" game. Either you'll love the game because of how unique it is, or hate it with a passion for that very same reason, with hardly anything in between. That's just the way it was meant to be.

[QUOTE="Novotine"]ps2's kind of a no brainer charizard1605
It certainly wiped the floor with everything else in the prelims.

i think the snes is closer than ppl give it credit for. the ps2 was a great great console though. i miss how companies actually cared about gamers back in those days

For me it is the PS1 followed by the SNES. I owned a PS2, but it collected dust due to me buying my first gaming PC.

60gb PS3...it plays PS3, PS2, PS1, PSP games along with Blu-ray movies AND can serve as a great media player/server along with a lot of other great stuff if you know what to do with it.

#167 Posted by PAL360 (26832 posts) -

Fair enough, but i disagree. I would go with Playstation 1, Megadrive or Snes. The fact Playstation 3 is in a 'top 5 of all time' tells alot about this poll's credibility, though lol

Old School - Intellivision - to compete directly with the juggernaut known as Atari , while producing original and fun games and being innovative speaks volumes for the job done. It's a shame they were killed by the industry crash.

Now - Super NES hard to compete with a library that still influences games in this gen....

Nope...via some modifications. Google is your friend.
