Metal Gear Solid 4


Best Single Player game to release since Metal Gear Solid 1.

It's in my top 2 games this year so far. :captnkill:

I hope Little Big Planet is GOTY (because then it will be awesome)

Damn it I want to play it. I just can't justify spending $500 plus sales tax to do it though.

Definate GOTY and i extend my sympathies to anyone who didn't get to play it.

But who thinks they'll give the award to GTA4 when it's time for a retrospective? I hope not but can't see MGS beating the fan vote..

And GTA IV has absolutely nothing on this title IMO.

Lies... GOTY will be Fallout 3.

You can't possibly know that :p

But it will be a strong contender, that's for sure... unless it gets delayed until next year, which is pretty likely when you think about it :D

Yea. 10 bucks says GTA4 will get it, due to 95% of all gamers being air headed twats. GTA4 fits their personality better.


Don't get me wrong, GTA 4 is a good game. Very well made. It just can't hold a candle to Metal Gear Solid 4.

I said I'd masturbate furiously over it and I have done several times.

One of very few games that I've gone back for a third playthrough.

The trailer looked just like the first graphicswise, gameplaywise, artistically etc. My expectation is that it's gonna be pretty forgettable at best.. Or just average through and through. Gears of War 1 was a very good game in co-op when it came out but it's not a Halo, Half-Life or Metal Gear Solid in my world and probably never will be.

i mean, i think you should probably play WiiFit until your muscles are big enough to play MGS4 a 4th time. :eek:

At the moment, I agree MGS4 is definitely the GOTY. Something might beat it that comes later though, it's still too early to tell IMO. I can't believe I am 3/4 of the way done with a 3rd play through of MGS4. It's a first for me to play a game through more than 2x. I still have Vegas2 and Mass Effect on the PC to go through but MGS4 has completely taken over (must be those dam nano machines ;)).

GTA IV was the most overrated game this year. Sold it a couple of weeks ago. Simply not as fun as the previous gta games. Didn't even get round to finishing it.

I hold game of the year judgement untill the end of the year. Most games come out during the Christmas holiday season so it's kind of pointless to claim a GOTY during the summer.

I don't know about that. MGS4 being THE best game I've ever played (And I have played A LOT of games) and I know that many others feel the same. So although you must never say never, I think the claim makes perfect sense :)

Agreed, MGS4 is the best game I've ever played. I don't expect any game to top that experience. I don't think any game can create a story to match that out of the games that are announced for this year.

Thank God, I thought I was the only person who felt that way. :p

Maybe I'll trade a bunch of stuff in for a PS3...or maybe sell my Wii to raise money. I dunno.

My top 3 games this year so far are GTA4, MGS4, and Mugen no Frontier Super Robot Taisen OG Saga.

I haven't played MGS yet but I doubt it can top GTA IV. Rockstar took the genere "open world game" to a new level unmatched by anyone. Liberty City alone is a digital master work of art.

Open world games are far more difficult to produce and develop than your basic follow the path shooter. But in this game Rockstar was able to give this game a third person shooter feel but within a huge wide open world. You seemlessly travel from huge outdoor spaces to indoor spaces. The driving physics in the game is more impressive than most full driving games.

For example, get on a speed boat and switch to first person view and sail around Algonquin at night. It's gorgeous.

GTA IV is a work of art because it manages to bring Liberty City to life in a way no other game has ever done. Television shows, comedy standup acts, cabaret performances.

I would be pretty surprised if MGS4 is as innovative and brilliant as GTA IV.

....as with all art not everyone appreciates it.
