No game series is more overrated then MGS

Played the HD collection. Found all of the games boring and with awful controls. Story was out there too nothing redeeming about these games IMO. What's all the praise for?


You think MGS is the most overrated? Are you new to gaming or something?

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it

he's one of those kids that years later plays a game that was/is popular and comes to the boards with garbage like "what so great about (insert whatever popular series)?". As if his opinion actually matters. The little troll boy is just filling the monthly quota of stupid topics that gamefaqs needs to fulfill every month.

You know what?

I think Metal Gear Solid is the greatest thing created in the history of video games. And I think that Call of Duty and Final Fantasy VII are damn overrated.

And I don't care what people thinks about that.

Personally, I think GTA is a lot more overated.

Bully and Red Dead redemption were much better R* sandbox games IMO.

Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG.
Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.

The first one was good for it's time. Well the gameplay sucked but the ridiculous story and moronic characters fit in with everything else from the PS1 era. Hell the voice acting was godly compared to things like Syphon Filter and Resident Evil.

Unfortunately it never improved past that. The writing is insanely bad. It has some of the worst dialogue I've ever heard. If you play these games in front of people they will actually think less of you as a person. And for some reason this has always been the focus of the series. The gameplay has always just been there to get you through the story. it's always been just average to sub-par.

So I can't quite figure out why the series is considered anything special either.

You seem mad

It's a joke to consider MGS gameplay to be sub par, especially since pretty much every video game has a spectacularly bad stealth sequence to compare it to.

Not saying MGS is the greatest stealth game ever. It's just that there is so much precedence for bad stealth gameplay that MGS is so clearly well above that.
