So far there haven't been a game that comes close to the epicness of Metal Gear Solid 3 aka the best video game ever that can and will make a grown ass man cry like a baby. I mean everything was perfect about MGS3, the amazingly epic soundtrack, super duper epic storyline, epic characters, great gameplay, plot twists, amazing bosses, voice acting, the humor as well as seriousness of the game, best cutscenes ever in a game, etc.
Mass Effect 1 and FFX has come close but Mass Effect 1's gameplay was average and FFX had a cry baby teenager for a main character for the entire game so those games weren't perfect but Metal Gear Solid 3 was perfect because it had everything I mentioned in the first paragraph.
I pray to Buddha that some day a genius game creator will be born and create a game just as epic or more epic than the masterpiece known as Metal Gear Solid 3
It's funny because you're almost describing my experience with Super Robot Taisen Original Generations 2 for gba. So no, Metal Gear Solid 3 is not the most epic game I've ever played.... --- Currently playing: 999, Megaman ZX Advent, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and Scribblenauts Unlimited
the only thing FF10 came close to accomplishing is outsucking FF7, the voice acting and **** like that laughing scene does make it a pretty close call, but FF7's horrible writing wins (err, loses) out in the end --- I've never seen anything this beautiful in the entire galaxy... All right, give me the bomb. -Ultra Magnus
