The very fact that you try to use IQ as a determination for game choice is absolutely pathetic. Few (if any) games actually challenge you mentally. And you can try to make up paste eating comments all you want, but according to MENSA (a high-IQ society of which I am officially a member) I am the among the one percent. Also means my IQ is immeasurable at 135> (greater than the 99th percentile) and guess what? I love Metal Gear. That proves your theory wrong.
Everything you say about Metal Gear is literally the polar opposite. For example, you are ignorant enough to believe that it is for stupid people, yet its fanbase consists of generally more sophisticated people than the casuals that play COD, Halo, Fifa, Madden and so on. Its story driven and has a heavy-handed narrative that requires patience, thought, comprehension and cognitive development. More so than most games anyways. It is easy for the degenerates (such as yourself) that can't follow that trail of thought to disregard the quality of the games. Don't blame your lack of processing capacity on the games, reviews like GS & IGN and countless others that gave it perfect 10s agree.
Bragging about your IQ to try to negate MGS being made for stupid people. So insecure, anyone can make up BS about their IQ, the fact that you actually though this would convince anyone is more evidence that you're an idiot.
I can tell by your post that you're a complete moron. I don't think the series is made for stupid people, I know it is, because only an idiot would consider MGS sophisticated when one of the running gags in the series is chronic diarrhea, I guess watching people dump loads in their pants, a monkey wearing a diaper, black stereo types and Raiden running around naked at the end of MGS2 most all be the pinnacle of sophistication amirite?
MGS is story driven but it doesn't change the fact that the premise of the story as well as the pacing are a complete turd, especially in MGS4 which was rushed and attempted to tie up all loose ends with a plot device. One of the few redeeming qualities of this series was that the bosses in the first 3 MGS games were somewhat entertaining and unique even though they were cartoon characters. MGS4 managed to f*ck this up by introducing some of the WORST bosses, the BB corps were beyond lame, and what was even more pathetic was trying to give them a lame back story.
How about the constant abuse of shock value in the game? In almost every MGS game the protagonist was needed alive and was revealed at the end of the game to be part of the antagonist master plan? MGS1 Snake was needed alive to activate REX using the PAL Codes. MGS2 The Patriots wanted Raiden alive. MGS4 Snake was needed alive to upload Foxalive.
Give me a f*cking break. You have absolutely no ground to stand on. The biggest injustice here is idiots thinking that MGS is actually a well written series when Kojima is the M Night Shymalan of the video game industry.
It's a series designed to appeal to stupid people, and you're living, breathing evidence of this. If the MGS fan would just admit that the series is poorly written, poorly paced and that Kojima is a no talentless hack, but that MGS has a certain charm that appeals to them, the fanboys may be held in higher regard, but this delusion of MGS being well written is just more evidence that MGS fans were the same kids in remedial classes.
The only skirt you can hide behind is Gamespot and IGN giving the game a 10, good for you. The game on Metacritics has a 94 which doesn't even make it the highest rated game this past gen. The only thing you've shown is it's the most overrated game this past gen.
I recently started playing the MGS series on 360 through the hd collection. Loved MGS2, loved MGS3 even more. I have been hearing a lot of the same old Kojima can't write crap. I just don't see it. The plots of MGS are very intricate and well detailed. They mix realism with a touch of fantasy, but even the fantastical elements tend to have some meaningful connection to reality. MGS is one of the few military franchises that is about a bunch of white people killing thousands of foreigners for "murica." While the player is sometimes put up against foreigners, they are also put up against Americans and the foreigner killing doesn't lead to epic "murica!!!!" moments. Instead, the main character struggles with many moral concepts a lot of the time and sees the harmful effects of major mations and their wars. We see the dangers of the future's technology, and we don't just see what said technology is capable of, but we even see what it does to our humanity. We see how wars also lead to the usage of scientists and soldiers as mere disposable tools used to meet the ends of those with power. Kojima has clearly researched a lot of stuff about military tech and has clearly watched a lot of anti-war films. What is also great about the series is able to infuse these heavy themes with great, intense action movie scenarios found in CoD, Medal of Honor, and other action games. I am currently playing through the series and all I can say is that Kojima is probably one of the greatest men in the industry and deserves a lot of the fanfare he gets. He is a great designer and storywriter.
@lostrib: This, Far Cry 2 wanted to be what Spec Ops is. It didn't reach that goal due to its poor execution.
@Zelda187: Halo has new weapons every installment though, ones that stand out from previous ones. It also has new vehicles and various other new features. Well, except for Halo 4. Most of the new stuff in their wasn't very original.
@Couth_: 3DS is selling like hotcakes though.
:S how is 12500 people alot of people when sony have sold 2m+ consoles :S it's a small very very small fraction at all, it's a rubbish qte game.
Because most PS4 players don't follow petitions. Number of sigs is usually < number of buyers.
First: Playing Warcraft III. I was instantly hooked. Never played anything like it.
Most Memorable: Raiding during Wrath of the Lich King in WoW. Loved getting together with my guildies to fight epic bosses. I also remember getting prepped, geared, and all of the stuff in between. It was a blast.
Most Recent: Playing TF2. Just plain great shooting fun.
@sukraj: Most of the games haven't influenced anything. Some because they are too new, and one because its Fable Ii.
10. Assassin's Creed: Gameplay elements introduced in this game are prevalent in some other games.
9. Angry Birds: Major contributor to the rise of popularity in mobile games and a growth in the casual market.
8. Minecraft: A game that has helped bring larger focus on the indie market. Also look at all the game that use minecraft styles of graphics since it's release. Also Terreria copied it in a lot of ways.
7. Portal: Showed that games that were small could be great.
6. League of Legends: Made free-to-play something not cringe worthy.
5. Wii Sports: Ushered in an huge casual market.
4. Demon's souls: Inspired a friggin' console.
3. Gears of War: created a new basic formula required for modern third person shooters. Over the shoulder and cover were made the standard. Also helped popularize co-op play in shooters.
2. CoD 4: popularized many if the features that our found in modern shooters.
1. World of Warcraft: Made the MMO genre mainstream and modernized it. Best Mmo ever.

No, Nintendo as you saw with the Wii era would prefer if games like Wii Sports and Wii Fit were the norm. Games such as these are much easier on devs and can be popped out easily whereas hardcore games require a lot more work/effort.
Gamers rejoice, Nintendo will either move the handheld market soley or pull out of the gaming business (best option for us)
I have no idea what Nintendo you were following during the Wii era. Because I was following the Company that had
- Donkey Kong Country Returns
- Metroid Prime 3
- Zelda Twilight Princess
- Super Mario Galaxy
- The Last Story
- Pandora's Tower
- Super Smash Bros Brawl
- Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn
- Zelda Skyward Sword
- Sin & Punishment Star Successor
- Super Mario Galaxy 2
- Metroid Other M
- Mario Kart Wii
- Wario Land Shake It
- Kirby's Epic Yarn
- Kirby Return to Dream Land
- Punch Out
- New Super Mario Bros. Wii
I don't know of this Nintendo that would prefer it if games were like Wii Sports or Wii Fit. They sure as heck do not show that.
You are an idiot if you think those games have mass appeal and for every 2 games on that list = 1 Sony/MS exclusive
So MS and Sony only put out half the games that Nintendo did?
Nintendo isn't for kids, it's for everyone. Nintendo makes games that can be enjoyed by adults, teens, kids, or all three. They have had plenty of games that are bought by adults. More adults and teens than kids bought Pokemon Black and White when it first came out in Japan. Many games have been marketed to adults, as well. Many Nintendo games, such as Pokemon X & Y and Link Between Worlds have had ads that were run on Channels such as Comedy Central.
Donkey Kong birthed a genre.
Super Mario Bros defined the modern standard for that genre and for many games in general.
Super Mario 64 brought said genre to 3d.
Ocarina of Time set the standards for other 3d games, including open world ones, to come.
We would not have games like GTA 3-5, San Andreas, Vice City, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Half-Life, and more without these games.
Many devs list these games as there biggest influences. Gaben himself has stated the Super Mario 64 is one of his two all time favorite games and that it convinced him that games are an art form.
that will most likely be a Sony exclusive like always
Except for Ocarina of time, Soulcalibur, Metroid Prime, Wind Waker, WoW, RE4, GOW, SMG, RDR, and Skyrim right.
