They just said they hated the button mashing part. I think you're the one who is missing the point here.


So they hate symbolism? If they hate symbolism, then why the **** would they be playing a story based game which is filled with it?

Confirm.

It was a good game but by no means was it ANYTHING anyone said it was. Honestly I thought it was a terrible ending to a saga and I didn't like the gameplay much either in comparison to 2 and 3.

I play a lil bit of everything on a lil bit of everything.
Not changing this until we get a Viewtiful Joe 3 or HD collection of VJ 1&2 (started 8/14/12)

Symbolic might be the wrong word. It's more like an homage to all the torture sequences in past MGS games. Did you complain about the button mashing sequences in MGS1 and 2 as well?

No, not really. I just didn't like the one in mgs4 because I think the button mashing ruined the sad moment. I had to concentrate on the button mashing more than watching the scene.

the torture button mash and solidus strangle was fine because they were really cutscenes.

It's supposed to represent Snake's overall struggle with the decrepit state of his body and the pain of the hallway intensifying it. The player is engaged with having to mash a button as hard as possible, by the end of it at an almost impossibly fast pace, to give a similar feeling as to how much effort Snake is outputting to move.

Are you complaining that you wanted LESS gameplay and MORE cutscene?

Is it really that much of a struggle to mash a button and pay attention to something else at the same time? I think this is more a personal problem on your end, rather than a problem with the game.

It was no different than the scenes in MGS1 and 2. It was just another form of torture. Torture Snake had to endure to shut down Outer Haven.

Yea and I've never even failed that sequence even on the hardest difficulty. I'm not even sure it's possible to fail it. People complain about the stupidest ****.
