Just finished Metal Gear Solid 2. Holy fuck.
At first, I was disappointed by the missing cast and having to play as some random twink instead of snake. I liked the gameplay, but it was a bit fast, and more difficult that MGS. Using FPS mode with a controller feels like shit, as always, but I kinda got used to it. The Fatman fight was so kino. I was really enjoying it, but hoping I'd get to play as Snake. EE's death really fucked me up. They specifically gave her traits, phobias, to trigger a paternal instinct to protect, as well as make the player bond with her after witnessing her vulnerabilities and carrying her around like a child and holding her hand. Fuck. That's evil game design and something you can only do with games. I actually started crying with Otacon. The game just got a lot heavier all of a sudden, it was legit depressing. I was like "let's just finish this", and the game somehow goes 4D. The AI sequence is the most horrifying gaming experience I had. At this point, I really got invested into Raiden and Rose's relationship, because I could relate to Raiden and this sudden change was haunting. I started questioning everything, it was like a fever dream, Snake appearing gung-ho in his classic getup, handing you a katana, the game suddenly turning into an action movie, the surreal fight with Rays - everything is deliberately designed to make you doubt anything you see. Snake's "infinite ammo", Japanese hi-tech armor straight out of a cyberpunk setting for no reason, and they deliberately made everything feel more "gamey". It was like a parody of metal gear at this point. The situation was orchestrated by Ocelot and Patriots, it's a simulation, the in-game events might be an in-universe VR simulation, the real game Metal Gear Solid 2 in our world is literally a simulation. I was questioning everything until the final battle. What a battle, too, the music's amazing. It was scary. I can see why everyone keeps sucking Kojima's dick. Genius.

It's just so fucking masterfully designed. Everything is deliberate, calculated, thought-out thoroughly. I don't even have anything else to say, it's beautiful. You know the thing Snake and Raiden say about art and passing it on to the next generation? This piece of art is worth being passed on just like that. Fucking GOAT

You're a slowpoke, OP. Yeah, MGS2 is my favorite game of all time, but after MGS3, if you keep playing anything Kojima made, it becomes more and more apparent he was simply at the right place, at the right time, surrounded by the right people, especially during MGS2's development. Not only MGS4 undermines everything 2 did, his writing dropped off a cliff permanently. People love to downplay Fukushima's contributions but it's crystal clear Kojima can't do shit without him and probably other key members that were there at the time.

It's one of my favorite games of all times. It took Fallout 1, multiplied the content by 4, improved the balance and difficulty, and added a lot of new themes and lore to the universe. I also liked the more civilized atmosphere.

>> No.9037175

Too much combat and encounters in a game where the combat gameplay is already really bad. Speedhacks help, but that doesn't really justify the original game.
Lots of 90s humor which didn't age well.
Economy is really fucked and the game pretty much just starts dumping high value weapons on you really early.
Some annoying design decisions like getting your ear chomped off in the boxing questline, which is really easy to just not notice since it's just a small text line in the useless box in the bottom left. This means loading a save to basically reroll the Tyson fight over and over until you get a fight in which he doesn't eat your ear.

I couldn't finish it and I just tapped out pretty far into it. I'll do it again at some point.

>Samurai Reddit: Downvoted
it's garbage, after watching the tranime which was decent and kinda enjoyable to be fair (Lofi music sucks btw) i discovered it had a PS2 game and it was directed by the hack Suda51 which made me skeptical because most of his games are awful, but hearing people praising this game made me curious, perhaps it's one of the few Suda51 good games like Killer 7 so i gave it a try and oh boy i should have known it's trash
this isn't an Samuria Champloo video game directed by Suda51, this is a typical ''style over substance'' Suda51 game with the IP of Samuria Champloo sticked to it
the gameplay is awful i didn't like the clunky controls or the stupid combos, i couldn't enjoy it at all
if you a big fan of the tranime and wants to see the story then watch a playthrough, if you are interested in the gay music then listen to it on Youtube, because this game isn't worth playing by yourself
