It's like Kojima let the younger guys handle it and they wanted to go the overly dramatic anime route. It's no different than how the young COD devs over-pack their games with slow-motion explosion scenes and Rambo missions. For COD, it's acceptable because it was always meant for multiplayer and was never truly story oriented like MGS was.
MGS 5: Ground Zero looks like it'll go back to form. Solid storytelling. Solid characters. Solid dialogue.
For me MGS 3 ranks first followed by 4, 1 and 2.
