My excitement level for Metal Gear Solid V is a 10; it is the single most important game I'm awaiting at the moment, as the Metal Gear Solid franchise is what sparked my interest in gaming. Every aspect of the game excites me, such as the new direction in which Kojima has taken the English voice acting, the new FOX Engine, the open-world gameplay, and the story's focus on Big Boss's transformation into a "demon."

Specifically regarding the voice acting, just like its story, Metal Gear Solid's has always been dramatic and over the top. Solid Snake's and young Big Boss's voices as portrayed by David Hayter is excessively gravelly and convey only anger and calmness, the dominant two of both characters emotional range. Revolver/ Liquid Ocelot's voice as portrayed by Patric Zimmerman was also excessively gravelly, but in a sly manner which was in accord with the character's cool swagger. Both of these examples are representative of the overall direction of the voice acting in previous games of the MGS franchise.

However, Metal Gear Solid V will change things, and whether or not for the better or worse is up for fans to debate. The voice acting will be far less dramatic, if the trailers and demos for the game are anything to go by. Lines will be delivered with more subtlety and the emotion they are intended to convey will be accentuated by the face expressions of the characters, courtesy of the FOX Engine's rendering capability. Personally, I like this direction, and to be specific, I like Big Boss's new voice, performed by Kiefer Sutherland. Perhaps my fanaticism for "24" and its main character, Jack Bauer, have caused me to be biased, but I can't help it.

It's my favorite series of all time, but it looks like I'll have to play the game on the hardest difficulty because I dont like that x-ray vision crap from the splinter cell games.

NotGonnaFoolMeAgainKojima/10

I was excited when I saw the Phantom Pain MGSV trailer and the E3 demo but man, the last demo of the gameplay they should look like shit and has me cautious. MGS4 was a horrible excuse for a MGS game.

#5 Posted by tryagainlater (7445 posts) -

Rather have Metal Gear Rising 2.

#6 Posted by ReadingRainbow4 (12629 posts) -

It's probably my most hyped game as of this moment.

#7 Edited by Krelian-co (9730 posts) -

like always i know kojima wont dissapoint

#8 Posted by Nengo_Flow (9187 posts) -

My hype was a 12/10, untill i saw that it will still have the same clunky ass controls and movements since MGS1.

Now my hype is at 9/10

I'm guessing that you don't like the "casualized" gameplay mechanics, such as being able to see enemies through walls and use aggressive offensive tactics to progress through the game? Well, I think that those mechanics will be minimized or eliminated on higher difficulties.

Didn't have a problem with that. I had a problem with him crawling past a guard making loud squishy noises and not being noticed and driving past guard towers and nothing happens. The actual gameplay looks really bad. Especially after just beating a stealth game with good mechanics like Splinter Cell Blacklist.

Well, I'm certain that the demos were played on one of the lower difficulty settings. Just think of MGS4, where you could barely move an inch in the hardest difficulty without attracting attention.

Not a good sign either. MGS4 was meh in the gameplay department.

regen health, see through walls, more action oriented, Quiet's outfit so over-sexualized she looks like a prostitute (still hoping is not her main outfit through all the game), etc. Every time I see a new announcement or demo I only get more and more disappointed on Kojima chasing the dudebro demographic. It's just like what Capcom did to Resident Evil.

Another thing that puts me off the game is that I have to play Peace Walker and I tried it but couldn't get past the crappy cut-scenes. The game feels very limited even compared to MGS3 on the PS2. I blame the PsP for that.

#14 Posted by BluRayHiDef (10837 posts) -

I know that this won't happen, but wouldn't it be messed up if Big Boss lost his other eye in combat? Damn.

#15 Posted by finalfantasy94 (26133 posts) -

im excited to play it. Though I rather have something that isint a prequel.

#16 Posted by Netret0120 (1852 posts) -

This should be the last game in the franchise and it retires. MGS is one of my fave franchises but i can't help bur feel they are going to milk it for every last drop because Konami don't have anything better or any new IP they trust.

Watch MGS6 be about The Boss in WW2 and you see how she became The Boss.

I will get this game but i liked Residents evil and look how the milking of it turned out with 6

still no co-op ?

still no co-op ?

Who wants co-op in a metal gear game?

After the last gameplay clips they released my excitement for this game was revitalized. I have to admit though I'm still nowhere as hyped for this game compared to when previous metal gear games came out. It's more like with the standards games are right now, the designs for previous metal gear games just won't work anymore. However kojima is running the show, so there's always something interesting going on.

Co-op is great in Splinter Cell. If Metal Gear had gameplay that didn't suck it would probably be a fun co-op game

#20 Posted by insanegame377 (332 posts) -

In truth I have zero excitement for MGS5, despite being a huge fan of previous Metal Gear games. This is because after finishing 4 I felt a sense of closure and an end to the MGS story, and feel that the franchise is just being milked for what its worth as due to it still being a money-spinner. Also from what I've seen there seems to be a lot of attempt to appeal to casual gamers and non-fans, which is never a good sign.

In short, while I was a huge MGS fan, I feel they should have just left the franchise alone after 4, which was intended to be the last one. I'm worried that future games could end up damaging the credibility of the franchise.

#21 Posted by rigbybot127 (149 posts) -

After masterpieces like MGS3 and 4 (and 2... and 1), I have no reason to doubt Kojima's ability to tell a great story, and have polished gameplay to send you through it.

#22 Posted by SonofK (1066 posts) -

5-6. I like the direction it's going but MGS4 was the biggest piece of crap this console generation so I'm skeptical

#23 Posted by Puckhog04 (22577 posts) -

I'm excited for it. So I guess I'll say a 5/10. It's certainly not going to make any new fans but I own and beat all the previous ones so I may as well get this one. I don't know how many more times I can sit through a 30 minute cutscene though. I don't have the time anymore.

#24 Posted by danabo (2474 posts) -

Excitement level = meh.

#25 Posted by blamix99 (1488 posts) -

im excited for mgs5 but im more excited for ffxv. =)

#26 Posted by Basinboy (10888 posts) -

Just gonna watch the cutscenes on Youtube to get the DL on Sutherland's performance

Dat Jack Bauerness....

#27 Edited by GodspellWH (351 posts) -

Could never get into the story of MGS ever since 3 the story is just plain confusing and corny at times its just hard to tell where the series is heading assuming he's going making more MGS games or end it with next installment. The gameplay looks interesting overall still seems clunky.

#28 Posted by Renegade_Fury (16927 posts) -

0/10. It's a metal gear game, so it's going to suck by default.

#29 Posted by superclocked (5807 posts) -

From what I've seen so far, it looks like a great game...

#30 Posted by Senor_Kami (8218 posts) -

Loved MGS4. Looking forward to 5. It's one of that titles that will push me to jumping into next-gen once it's out.

#31 Posted by jg4xchamp (46523 posts) -

Indifferent.

I like Kojima and his rebellious ways, but I'm not too hyped I guess. Visually it looks impressive, and the gameplay could be neat(lol stealth horse). But Kojima handling torture stuff? With his writing? and his inability to focus? Yeah, definitely not looking forward to that aspect of the game.

#32 Edited by Chutebox (36034 posts) -

It's a MGS on consoles, so I'm hyped!

#33 Posted by APiranhaAteMyVa (2843 posts) -

Pretty hyped, thought MGS4 was great. So another MGS game should be good.

#34 Edited by kraken2109 (12936 posts) -

I like open world games but i'm not really an MGS player.

#35 Posted by Chrome- (1660 posts) -

I'm a big MGS fan and I'm excited for it, I like the new direction and don't mind change.

I'm looking forward to see what they do with a young liquid snake.

#36 Posted by Cyberdot (3510 posts) -

Regen health, see through walls and most stealth elements taken away, I'm not bothered about MGSV anymore. It's made for dudebros who want to see moar EXPLOZIONZZZ!!1!

#37 Posted by Sushiglutton (5164 posts) -

MGS IV is the worst game I have ever played. Wil never buy another installment in this franchise again.

#38 Posted by uninspiredcup (6478 posts) -

Don't care. Rather play Hotline Miami 2.

#39 Posted by BreadNMilk (37 posts) -

Excitement: whenever it comes it comes. Score: 10\10

#40 Posted by Link3301 (1680 posts) -

It looks great. Can't wait to play it. Probably an 8-9/10 in terms of excitement. Can't wait to see what the multiplayer will be like as well. I want to see what Kojima means by "large mulitplayer."

#41 Edited by timbers_WSU (5753 posts) -

The most overrated series from the most overrated game designer of all time.

#42 Edited by organic_machine (9682 posts) -

I am cautiously optimistic. I did not love 4 but I loved Peace Walker so we'll see.

#43 Posted by princeofshapeir (13568 posts) -

Very excited. It's among my most-hyped games for 2014. I welcome the new gameplay if it means Kojima is taking that aspect of the series seriously this time.

#44 Posted by rigbybot127 (149 posts) -

I never understood what some people meant when they say that the MGS series has bad gameplay. I thought they had great gameplay for their time, while 4 has all-around excellent controls. V should be no different.

#45 Posted by Bren128 (2352 posts) -

One of my favorite series, my excitement level is pretty high. looks epic

#46 Posted by PS360Wii4eva (296 posts) -

For once I'd like to read some genuine excitement about a game instead of bitching. Resident Evil isn't even in the same league as MGS this gen.

#47 Posted by verbalfilth (4551 posts) -

I'll buy it and play it since I've done the same for every main MGS game.

I'm not too excited for it. I'm highly certain the game will be a failure. Open world doesn't seem like it compliments stealth well. In fact it seems like it will break the experience.

Hopefully Kojima will prove me wrong.

#48 Posted by donalbane (16124 posts) -

I think the open world idea sounds great, and the graphics look really nice. I am just hoping the gameplay continues to improve as it has been. I will certainly miss OctoCammo, though.

#49 Posted by Bread_or_Decide (17043 posts) -


I'm avoiding any and all videos of the game. I will just play it when it comes out. Dunno why Kojim feels he needs to show us everything.

As for my excitement level for the game...I'm a huge fan and I will play any and all MGS games that come out.

#50 Posted by Riverwolf007 (23362 posts) -

zero excitement.

if a dev shows off a gameplay video then fast forwards through the boring parts and that fast forwarding lasts 95% of the demonstration that is a pretty huge red flag for me.

seriously, who green lit a gameplay video that fast forwards through the entire thing.

that is a guy that needs to be canned.
