What do I think?

"Oh boy, only the thousandth CoD game to come out!, I wonder what we'll do in this one? Oh yeah, shoot people...........again"

I mean, they should just name their games after the year like Madden or Fifa or something.

<< LINK REMOVED >> yeah man I'm gonna be mad if there comes a day when physical copies of games are gone, internet connections don't always work, plus I feel more like I own something when I can actually hold it, not stream it like it's Netflix

<< LINK REMOVED >> See the thing with PC is that I don't see many appealing games for them, and my best friend has a juiced gaming PC and it graphically looks slightly better than my PS3 or just about the same.

A Last of Us sequel on the PS4 would really make it the go to system. Personally I'm going with a PS4 maybe next week or the week after. I used to have a 360 until I got my PS3 in 2009. I feel like Sony has more to offer in terms of exclusives like the Uncharted series, God of War, Last of Us (practically anything Naughty Dog makes is platinum), Beyond Two Souls, Killzone, Gran Turismo, Infamous, Heavy Rain, Metal Gear Solid 4, Resistance, Ni no Kuni, Little Big Planet, I mean I could go on. I found that most of my Xbox collection was multiplatform games and what exclusives I did own were just your typical ones like Halo, Fable, and Gears of War. Sony strives to establish new IPs, while it seems XBox is going to just run with the big names that have been established since the original Xbox.

<< LINK REMOVED >> agreed, though I think you'd have to have some knowledge of MGS to play MGS4 because that game is pretty much a shot of nostalgia. I do hope they shorten the cutscenes as well, Rising's cutscenes were the perfect length in my opinion though Platinum Games made that.

My one gripe with this series is the length of the codec and cutscenes because they are so long at times that it kills an immersion I had at times. Seriously sometimes you play for around 10 minutes, then a 20 minute cutscene. In MGS4 there was always a cutscene to end each chapter which was lengthy, then the enxt chapter begins, we have a mission briefing, takes another 20 minutes, then after that they bring you to the mission, Otacon calls you on the codec, explains exactly what we just heard in the mission briefing. I mean ?i just wish they'd let you play the dam game sometimes! I hope they pace this out better.

I was really excited for this but when I heard that the story is beatable in 2 hours I kind of lost interest and I plan on waiting, I know that's if you rush and I'm sure there is some other stuff to do on the sides but I don't think that is enough to justify the price. I am a huge MGS fan and it's my favorite franchise in games, but $30 for a prequel is a little much, I recently bought Left Behind for Last of Us which was 3 hours and $15, and I have bought games like Dead Rising 2: Case 0 which was a 5 hour prequel to DR2 for $5 and Undead Nightmare for $20 which was well worth it. As for story, I love the Metal Gear story, I love seeing the characters like Ocelot, and Big Boss who were established in the 1960's timeline and how they are still main characters in the games that take place in more recent times, it does get confusing at times but that's what happens when you keep adding prequels, ideas get limited and things then have to fit into a timeline. They pretty much wrapped up Solid Snake's story in 4 so if they were to keep going into the future and expanding the story through sequels it would have to be as Raiden or a new character. Also, I think people look too much into these things, trying to find any inconsistencies they can and pick things apart, in the end of the day, it's a video game.

Dear god, what the hell is this? Sonic Team is on crack, they seemed to be on the right track with Colors and Generations, then Lost World came out and screwed up all their momentum and now this? What happened? Please Sega, put Sonic out of his misery, this has gone on long enough............
