So I'm finally playing MGSV since it was free on PS Plus. Call me crazy, but the only MGS game I completed before this one (not counting Ground Zeroes) is 4 and I loved it. Sure, I didn't really understand the context of what was going on, but I had a blast with it back in like 2009 when there was nothing to play on the PS3. I've played bits of 2 and 3 and intend to someday play through the series but for now, I'm playing 5.
The game starts off with the most cinematic sequence I've maybe ever played through with hospital scene, then I'm dumped in the middle of Afghanistan and told to do a bunch of busy work missions. The game has great gameplay and I love picking up those 80's cassettes but the stealth infiltration has gotten old already and I'm only like 15 hours in. I do all the missions they give me plus the side ops stuff but it's all feeling so repetitive.
So my question is, does the game ever reach the heights of the opening again in terms of storytelling and presentation or is it more of the same? And yes, I'm well aware that it's an unfinished game because of the Konami/Kojima feud.
