We have two Metal Gear "Solid"(Phantom Pain?) games coming out in the future. MGRR was confirmed to be a side story and not officially MGS5.

Raiden is a cyborg.

Why are Metal Gear Solid purists so foolish as to continue to complain about the game, when the MGS games are obviously not going to follow Metal Gear Rising in terms of gameplay? Hell the stealth in MGRR isn't anything special, but thats obvious because the combat seems to be the most focus. Raidens enhancements and body allow him to do a hell of a lot more against enemies compared to Big Boss and Snake. Making it focus on stealth would be stupid.


Raiden isn't even as horrible and whiny as his MGS2 self.

They have a right to complain. You have a right to question their complaints...Not just throw them out.

Public laziness is also to blame. The majority of the fanbase came in at MGS (as you noted). Most people shorten that to simply "Metal Gear". So then they automatically associate MGS to the stealth gameplay instead of the Metal Gear universe. Same mistake many people make when associating Dragonball --> Dragonball Z --> Dragonball GT.

And as crazy as this next part may sound, I preferred Raiden in MGS2 for the amount of knowledge he gains since that was his first ever field mission.
