Keifer sucks. 24 was a dumb propaganda show, where he played the 'Murrican hero' Jack Bower, fighting the "evil terrorists" coming to "take our freedoms." Now he plays a "terrorist", Naked/Tortured Snake, infiltrating US military bases and killing U.S. marines.(I am surprised this game wasn't banned with all the "terrorists" shooting up military bases lately). I hope they re-do the game with Hayter last second. He was snake in 3, PO, and PW, he should be snake now.

I can't get used to snake's new voice, it just doesn't feel right.

I hate it.

Feels so so wrong.

I think they messed up changing the voice, if Keifer had voiced 3 and phantom pain I am sure it would have felt ok for me.:

I lol'ed at the end with the little "Konami *happy jingle*" You know the vindictive executives there would gladly bury this game if it didn't mean losing the money they put into it. I wish corporate culture didn't let those incompetent weasels hold onto their jobs because of who they know and the tenure they've accrued.

The reason this trailer felt different than the other trailers, is simply because this trailer was not directed by Hideo Kojima.

Hideo Kojima's last trailers were usually accompanied by a song, with credits in the end. Also the last trailer had "Directed and edited by Hideo Kojima"... this did not.

That's why the style and presentation was different. It wasn't a bad trailer, but not a super-awesome MGS trailer either.

HK's trailers are the best in the industry, imo the last 3 trailers were excellent and captivating, and the Red Band E3 2013 trailer was the best trailer ever made.

@GunEye: Kojima doesn't direct gameplay trailers, he never has.

@TheFrow: Does he now?

"Trailer directed and Edited by Hideo Kojima". Of course he directs them.

(and by Hideo Kojima I also refer to the KJP team as a whole with him at its head).

@GunEye: That's not a gameplay trailer, that's a story trailer. It contains no gameplay footage. Find me a gameplay trailer directed by Kojima and then we can talk.

I've obviously never been so excited for a game. However, after I buy this, I'm done with Konami.

@clay865: Konami is done with it anyways-- they will have nothing after this so it won't even matter-- they'll take your money regardless. I'm not buying this game, because it will go directly to Konami....I'll get it in other ways.

@NbAlIvEr10000: I agree with you but I am interested in how you will "get it in other ways."

certainly most epic game at gamescom, after all those years kojima still makes very different games compared to the rest of the industry..

Avatar image for crushbrain

I didn't like the Konami label at the end. Otherwise awesome trailer.

Avatar image for variable21

@crushbrain: i liked that it was at the end and not at the beginng like it was for the rest of the trailers :D and only really short, not even a second

Avatar image for AndreasRufus

@variable21: it was in the beginning, just as the kojima logo (!)- just without text.

A Hideo Kojima game..

Kojima Productions..

**** Konami

Avatar image for berserker66666

But you know what this doesn't have? Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions's name.

This trailer is so different from the other ones. I felt like I'm watching a Hollywood super hero action movie trailer. It just doesn't have that Kojima style.

@Techn1c4l: I think maybe this is headed for the cinemas. That would be cool, I guess.

Avatar image for berserker66666

@Techn1c4l: This is what you can expect when Hideo Kojima is not there. Thankfully he finished working on MGS V before the shitstorm and now this will be the final MGS game to even come out.

That ending on Ground Zeros was all i needed to get hyped over this game. Now this... it's just too much.
