C/D Metal Gear Solid 4 is one of the most overrated games this gen.

Everyone who said C is obviious either never played the game or just plain haters...or trolls.

Mgs4 is the best game this gen for so many reasons. Great bosses, good story and characters, replay value, graphics, etc everything.


All of you who said Confirm obviously have bad taste and do not know what a good game is


Or we have differing opinions.

To me, MGS4 is a movie with a terrible story first, game second. The gameplay (when you get to play) is linear as hell and felt like a step backwards from MGS3.

The story would have appealed to me when I was 16 but since I'm older it felt like a preachy anti-war episode of Mighty Morphing Power Rangers. Ooooo nano-machines! How futuristic and clever, please remind the player every 15 min.

To sum the game up.

Play 10 min. Watch awful cutscenes for 45min about what ZERO means. Play for 10min. Watch awful cutscenes about comparing death to rose petals (SOOOO DEEEP) for 45min. REPEAT 6-7 TIMES. Hit triangle for 10 minutes. Watch crap cutscenes for an hour. CREDITS. (not even going to mention the install times).

Absolute confirm. Only the die-hard, Kojima can do no wrong fans will deny this.

Abortion is the cold-blooded, soulless SLAUGHTER of a living human being.
Scientific FACT.

Deny. The gameplay was so much better than MGS3, don't know what people are talking about.

Deny for ALL overrated videogame topics, not just this one. There is no such thing as an overrated game unless there is undeniable proof that game reviewers were paid off to rate a game higher than they would have otherwise.

Even a single person liking that game would make it overrated.

That game conflicted me because I liked it yet hated it at the same time. I liked the gameplay but I'll admit the story was nonsensical at times but there were hints of genius in there (few) and the ending dragged on forever I was actually laughing instead of supposedly emotionally drawn in like it wanted me to be. Kojima is good but he needs to learn some restraint...
