Big Boss says the medic was his best soldier, so he wasn't just any random dude. They give him all of Big Boss' memories through hypnosis while he's in a coma, so he shares Big Boss' experience (just like the player).

Also, how does rookie Raiden take out 20 ****ing Metal Gears in MGS 2? As you said, because video games.


I will say the story isn't anywhere near as good as MGS 2...I can't believe that shit came out in 2001. The last act was unlike anything I've seen in any game, movie, or TV show.

Yeah, I have. Very mediocre. Not something I want to play much of, which I was originally planning to do.

Can't decide between 2 and 3. MGS 2 definitely has my favorite story in the series, but the top down stealth gameplay is a bit archaic (but still charming in it's own way).

I know V is pretty controversial among hardcore MGS fans, but I would put it in my top 5 all time. I'm a big fan of stealth games, and TPP is just pure perfection in terms of stealth gameplay.

Absolutely loved Kiefer's performance too. I wish we could get another game with him.
Well, it is a product of its time. Can't really compare it to today's gameplay.

I agree with you on your last two paragraphs. Not that V is top 5 all-time, but that stealth gameplay is pure bliss. So much replayibility.

The complaints about Kiefer were always overblown. Enjoyed him in Ground Zeroes, LOVED him in The Phantom Pain. He is hundred percent Big Boss to me now. David Hayter is still Solid Snake, always, but he never should have been Boss in the first place, but whatever.

Kiefer was a great choice by Kojima. Sounded very menacing, sounded like a veteran leader. If they ever do an MG 1 and 2 remake on the Fox Engine, I want him back.

Yeah I guess that's fair, but it just sounds weird to me that (white) some "medic" with no real backstory is actually a stealth master who saves the world from nuclear destruction. He may have been Boss' best soldier, but he's still just an MSF medic. Raiden had been handpicked and trained by the "perfect clone" of Big Boss since he was a child and still ended up losing vs. those Metal Gears.

Whatever, vidya gaymes.

At first, I didn't love MGS 2 that much. Now, it's quickly rising up my list. I've started to warm up to it's crazy campy bosses and convoluted story after a few months since I played it.

Does anyone else think the online mode is pretty mediocre? Doesn't really matter since the single player is excellent but I'm pretty underwhelmed.

It's reeeally bland. Couldn't play it for more than a day.

Just got the FOB missions. Is there any point to this? I get that I can steal another person's soldiers but... sneaking around the base isn't that fun. Too much line of sight for enemy soldiers and repetition in the level.

No. In fact, I would play offline so I didn't get invaded.

I don't think I ever bothered with FOBs. Not once.

Good to know.



Just beat Ep. 30 and started Chapter II.



They really gonna make me re-play all the Chapter I missions? Seriously? Seems like a BS way to extend the game's length.

Also does anyone ever play as a character other than Big Boss, I don't see the point?

Just do it. It will blow your ****ing mind.


Oh shit, I don't think I did the medical platform thing? Is it too late now?


Anyway, this game, as stated earlier, probably has GOAT mechanics. But some of the issues (enemies are blind to snake when he's prone, repetition, having to re-play old missions... seriously? do I seriously need to replay all those old missions on higher difficulty?) prevent it from being a 10/10.

Also I have no idea what the hell is going on in the story.

You don't have to do the replays. Totally optional.

And no, I don't think it's too late to do the thing on the medical platform. It's connected to the wandering motherbase soliders side ops.
